But it goes to the heart of the problem with the EU as well.
Left alone I'm certain we'd be able to come to some mutually beneficial agreement with every single nation state inside the EU.
But the EU will not allow individual states to negotiate with us..so effectively they have no individual sovereignty.



Isnt that the sum up of the whole EU project ? TOTAL control.

And isn't that what the Brits dont like? in the back of my head I am hearing

the tune and the words ..... Britians never never never will be slaves.





We need to stand united and stand up to these bullying autocrats.


Our current stand is what the bullies are most afraid of because we are

showing the other dissatisfied members there IS a way out!!!!

And make no mistake they are watching.........

As you know I'm no fan of Boris but he really can't win with some people.

Not changing the law and he's just more of the same representing the status quo, change the law and he's just a populist grabbing votes.

I agree 100%.

The EU is unbending, uncompromising and incredibly dictatorial.
It allows its member nations no room whatsoever to negotiate individual deals regardless of that nations best interests.
Effectively it strangles all notions of sovereignty.

The whole Brexit farce has reinforced my belief that it is imperative that we leave the EU, deal or No Deal.

And I'm absolutely certain there are elements in most EU nations who are watching developments closely in the hope that our Brexit inspires something similar in their countries.

As I see it, the whole Brexit shambles is mostly down to Parliament voting to rule out a No Deal. That left us without our most valuable negotiating lever - "give us a deal or it's no deal".

With that off the table the EU were laughing. Probably quite literally.

Boris can huff and puff about a no deal exit as much as he likes but I can't see it going through Parliament, or am I missing something?

And therein lies the heart of the problem; parliament is not representative of the will of the people.
60% of constituencies voted to leave yet 80% of MP's are Remainers.....you really didn't have to be Nostradamus to have foreseen major problems.

There have been conciliatory rumblings coming out of EU nations since Boris stated that No Deal most definitely is an option.

I have no idea how that No Deal could go through The Commons at present....but it was a massive mistake for May and parliament to rule it out.

Is there a constitutional crisis on the horizon?

Dunno about a constitutional crisis but I have a feeling that the excrement will shortly be interfacing with the rotating air circulation unit.

Always riding the wave

It gives the illusion of power and inclusion.

And then there are the people who simply vote on the off chance that it does bring about change.

But it's never real change because one side always wins.

And its the same side, or at least the monies and power behind such are the same.

Its a pantomime of sorts, oh no it's not, oh yes it is palaver at best.

That indeed is negotiation....... NOT May's feeble attitude of "what would you

like, and I'll see what I can do for you"
Barnier has said that not once, not

once in THREE YEARS did she ever mention a no deal and yet for the first few

months that was her mantra to the country!! What was she playing at ...... she

wasted THREE years we could/should have been out by now, and moving

forward.



With that off the table the EU were laughing. Probably quite literally.



Splitting their sides in mirth no doubt, the butt of many a joke?

It might help if there was less negativity from the BBC ....... Watching news and

political discussions all you get is IF IF IF instead of WHEN. They are also

pushing the attitude of the UK is only trying to convince the EU that there is a will

to leave and we are only going through the motions.......till as always happens

with the EU, there is a second vote (like Ireland having a second vote on the euro)



Do they honestly think the EU leaders are not watching every move????

Thanks to Parliament our negotiating position was: "Give us a deal or else we will...........actually, can we just have a deal? Please?"

So we can expect Boris and his cabinet to start doing all sorts of things which will garnish votes

such as cannabis legislation 180

Let's all think of some populist vote grabbing policy suggestions.

How about - banning caravans or road taxing the hell out of the bastard things?

That's a good one, how about £100 fixed penalties for two or more people walking side by side in the same direction on a pavement while pushing prams?
I'd also support moves to decriminalize the trapping and killing of pigeons for food purposes...all I see when feeding them in town is a big fat pie in my mind 😂

I don't think you want to be eating that kind of pigeon meat Silure.

They don't call them flying rats for no reason, manky bastards and then some.

And no wonder considering the pollution they are exposed to.

300 or 400 years ago maybe, God knows what you would end up with eating the poor things in this day of age???!!!
