Well, it appears 'hard brexit' on April 12. I hope all the politicians and pro-brexit types are happy.

The article is about Ireland and yes the UK is dragging Ireland along. ireland has to choose between a hard border in the EU and an open border and out of the single market.

The EU will enforce its border, make no illusions about that. It has no choice in the matter to secure the integrity of the single market.

Again both terrible choices for Ireland, a population which didn't have to make that choice. Be proud of that, Brexitrimest, not only you put yourself in this position, you force it on Ireland as well.

Don't blame the EU for this, you are to blame.


Hell no have I blamed anyone for Christ sakes, I merely point out that the EU is in fact not ready as some on here have said, certainty ROI is not ready.

Remember the EU have already got their plans done and dust, well no they haven't.

Calling being a fully qualified, voting member with a veto on the policies of the European Union "shackles" is so inverted and so ludicrously self-contradictory that the sheer contortions you guys are forcing yourselves into are almost bizarre enough for the Cirque du Soleil.

But you are perfectly fine to export your problems to the Republic of Ireland. To maintain the GFA they have to be chained to the sinking UK and you are cheering about that. I have zero sympathies for that point of view.

No, you have pointed out the real dilemma you Brexiteers let the Irish face. You know, or at least should know, that this is a consequence of your irresponsible wishes. Your childlike behavior of having the cake and eat it has real consequences for real people all over the EU. Firstly your fellow countrymen, but ok, if they want to shoot their foot of it is their choice and their problem, but it has negative economic consequences all over the EU, but more importantly, you put the Irish for an impossible dilemma. All is fine by you because you wanted this, you made the choice. You believed what a couple of City boys told you all those years.

For the first time I truly feel anger for this. It is time to grow-up and take some responsibility for this. You and 17million of your fellow countrymen voted for exactly this, so this is on you, all of you 17 million. So yes, I hope you will crash out. I hope Northern Ireland will vote to rejoin Ireland so they can be in the European family again, I hope that Scotland will follow suit and crash out of the UK and will rejoin the EU. And lastly, I hope that Wales and England will come to their senses and rejoin the EU after ten or more miserable years. I am very sorry for all the UK citizens whom voted remain, whom changed their mind and wanted to remain, whom strived to change the course towards the cliff edge, they fell victim to the Brexiteers. There is no point in reasoning with Brexiteers, they do not take any responsibility, just like the Brexitrimist in UK parliament. I am done, you finally did it, congrats, I want you out, I want a hard Brexit, I want the EU to move forward without this backwards nation.
Do you want a trade agreement, sure, you are back in line, see you in ten years or so. We have more important things to do. In the meantime we will take care you UK citizens in the EU, not to worry about them.
If you truly would take responsibility for your actions, you would give-up your right to move to Australia, no fallback position for you, like so many Brexitremist have like Nigal Farage, Jacob Rees-Mogg or Boris Johnson. Then you would regain some of my respect. But for now, I have no respect at all for your opinion, none.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Its time to ban Brexit.

Remainers should do Gandhi blockades. Shut commerce down. Demand 100% of the political power in Britain.

Demand the removal of all Brexiteers from Parliament.

Demand the closure of pro Brexiteer Facebook and Twitter groups.

Demand the removal of Brexiteers from business.

Demand a truth and reconciliation commission.

Demand a quick eradication of Brexit thought in Britain. It is poisonous, cancerous, and just like Naziism (except less damaging to others)

We are not exporting our problems on anyone, the problems created in the WA are joint all the EU had to do was put a time limit on the WA and it would sail past the problems in parliament. But no cant do that that means they lose a bargaining chip

But but your ready...……. should we now take what the EU says with a pinch of salt, after all the EU is held in such high esteem

The EU has today completed its preparations for a no-deal Brexit in view of the fact this is ‘increasingly likely’ to occur on April 12.

Difference between you and I is, I believe that they all should have a say if they want in out. Scotland has already had their say I'm prepared for the NI in the future if the want it and happy to abide by the results...…. but what I wont do is jump up and squeal like a baby because I didn't like the result like remoaner's do and force a change that the majority voted for.

What I'm waiting for from the remainers is a coup d'état. And I would not put it past them to do something like this

That's ok, as we run a trade deficit with the EU according to you lot you wont miss the UK market all that much any how, I'm sure other would like to fill the void of trade between the UK/EU

You know, I think that shows the outcome of greed: getting Baranaima'd. The EU requires its members to be democracies. Once Britain leaves the EU, it doesnt have to be a democracy anymore.

There is a saying: Be careful for what you wish for, because you might get it.

Being "free of the EU" can get ugly very quickly since it's being done in haste, and with greed.

Maybe you should read the article. The EU knows what it will do (either border between NI and Ireland or temporarily between Ireland and the rest of the EU). It's that Ireland still doesn't want to build the border between NI and Ireland (probably because it sends the wrong message).

And with border checks between Ireland and the EU, the back stop could be scrapped and the deal would go through. So it is just the EU and Ireland to blame for the delay of Brexit.

Maybe you should read the article. The EU knows what it will do (either border between NI and Ireland or temporarily between Ireland and the rest of the EU). It's that Ireland still doesn't want to build the border between NI and Ireland (probably because it sends the wrong message).


And with border checks between Ireland and the EU, the back stop could be scrapped and the deal would go through. So it is just the EU and Ireland to blame for the delay of Brexit.


However, Ireland doesn't want border checks on goods coming to/from Ireland and thus have to start its preparations (which it hoped didn't need to do and thus didn't do yet).

Not sure what putting an end date on the WA agreement would achieve. Particularly, as we never said what end date we wanted.

Also, an end date without mutual agreement was also going to be an issue.

A lot of UK trade goes out through EU ports like Rotterdam to get to the third countries though A101. Likewise a lot of UK third country imports come in through the EU.

So this *current* third country trade that routes through these euro hubs will get caught up in the Dover queues. This will become a huge headache for UK trade with checks needing to take place on Dutch & UK borders coming in, and at French borders on the way out.

The UK does not have sufficient infrastructure to do all our third country trade directly - we are reliant on the EU.

What has been very disappointing about all the indicative votes so far has been the nearly perfect split along party political lines. This is much bigger that party politics, FFS. :banghead:

Yes, tories and Labour are just fighting for power and show not to care about the consequences of Brexit beyond their chance to remain/gain power, but equally disappointing is that some Remain-parties like the LibDems do not vote for any sort of compromise amendments like the Norway+ option or the CU: only the purest form of EU membership is worthy of voting for, to them.

I think its high time MPs and TM let go of their 'winner takes all' mindset which is deeply rooted in the British political class because of its FPTP electoral system and get round the idea of having to compromise with opponents: you can't build a country on a 52/48 devide (or an imaginary 48/52 ico a successful second referendum): there will have to be some sort of a Brexit delivered, and it likely will be a very ugly one which nobody likes: so is the nature of compromise solutions.... yet the alternative is a perpetual gridlock in which nothing ever moves, as there will always be enough votes to deny the others from achieving anything, but never enough to achieve anything yourself either.

Enough people did vote on the basis of propaganda to have changed the result of the referendum. We know this from looking at polling data from one month prior to 3 months after the vote.

We are not exporting our problems on anyone, the problems created in the WA are joint all the EU had to do was put a time limit on the WA and it would sail past the problems in parliament. But no cant do that that means they lose a bargaining chip


Yes, you do. You deliberately put Ireland in a tight spot. Choose between the Good Friday Agreement or the common market. There is no solution to this if there is a hard Brexit. There needs to be a solution and as the record shows with Brexit, time limit will not solve anything. So the limit is put on the outcome and it should be.

And as you deny this, you are not taking any responsibility for your vote, as I have stated before and you are illustrating again.

What I'm waiting for from the remainers is a coup d'état. And I would not put it past them to do something like this


Things have changed quite a bit since the last referendum in Scotland, wouldn't you say? The UK put itself on a collision course with itself, so only fair that Scotland has another say in leaving because of changed circumstances. You wouldn't want a country to keep in chains because you are not ready to accept a different outcome, right? Democracy isn't the dictature of the majority.

Coup d'état? Now you are being just melodramatic.

Oh come on, not the old "they need us more, then we need them" rhetoric, this is becoming so old and Merkel and others already said that the integrity of the EU is far more important than trade with the UK. I feel the same, so let others fill the void, go ahead. You have 70 trade deals to make, all of whom will be at most the same as the EU and most probably far worse, and a trade deal will take around ten years to make. But you have detached yourself from reality, that doesn't mean it doesn't exsist.

Yes, you do continuously in fact, the biggest is that Brexit will be good for your country. But more to the point, your assumption is that everyone whom voted leave, voted for a hard Brexit, along with you. If you don't do that assumption you would be in favor of a people's vote, that would be the logical move because we don't know what the people actually voted for, there is a whole pallet of possible Brexit's.

An example of some of the ads posted on Facebook in the run up to the referendum:

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-44966969

I consider the majority of these to be factually inaccurate and flat out lies - due to their tone can be described as "propaganda".

634,751 voters out of 33.5 (1.8%) needed to switch to remain for the result to be different. In the last few weeks leading up to the campaign there was a significant swing to leave, at the same time the majority of the extra Facebook ad spending went live. The graph showing this correlation has been posted here before. I firmly believe that the type of ads that were shown, in the volume, to the targeted 6m million accounts (details illegally obtained) by exceeding the amount of money they were allowed to spend had a significant impact on the result.

I'm not going to waste time re-posting everything else the Electoral Comission has already found and stated. And we still haven't had the result of the investigation proving that US companies were involved in the Vote Leave campain which is also illegal under UK and US law.

A hard brexit was not championed by any of the official leave campaigns during the referendum. It was never mentioned. It was always stated that staying in a customs union was wanted. The only people shouting that everyone that voted leave wanted a hard brexit, are those that support a hard brexit.

Whatever your political leanings and whatever you think of May's "handling" of Brexit to date, I'm sure we can agree the whole of Parliament has let itself and the country down. What I also find ironic is that Parliament wanted to take control of the process in the belief they could solve it better than May, but two rounds of indicative voting later* has revealed no consensual way forward.

It's high time everybody took responsibility and make some big, bold decisions as to what happens next and to do so in a way that's compatible with reality. Do what's right for the country now, worry about the ballot box later and let history be the judge.

Finally, until the voting system is replaced with something along the lines of PR (not the AV system which failed in a referendum in 2011), I don't think parties are going to look beyond ideology and party lines and do what's right for the country, so compromise looks set to be absent from their vocabulary for the foreseeable. For all the criticism they got at the time and despite predictions it would quickly fail, the Coalition government in the period 2010-2015 succeeded in getting the Tories and Lib Dems together and staying together for the full 5 year parliamentary term.

*This really should have been one of May's first tasks shortly after becoming PM instead of vague "Brexit means Brexit" rhetoric and coming up with the idea of an early General Election in the hope an increased majority would work better.

Some of those who voted leave would now vote remain instead (and granted vice versa). The views of voters don't always stay the same.

The UK put itself on a collision course with itself, so only fair that Scotland has another say in leaving because of changed circumstances. You wouldn't want a country to keep in chains because you are not ready to accept a different outcome, right? Democracy isn't the dictature of the majority.


ah off you go to the broken record keep asking for referendum until you get the result you want, Oliver Twist "please sir i want some more"

The datasets behind the polling, carried out by Survation were inadvertently and briefly posted online. They revealed that while 40% of Scottish voters supported remaining in the, just 24% were completely sure they wanted to leave the UK, but 56% of voters were still undecided and tempted by independence.

Oh come on, not the old "they need us more, then we need them" rhetoric, this is becoming so old and Merkel and others already said that the integrity of the EU is far more important than trade with the UK. I feel the same, so let others fill the void, go ahead. You have 70 trade deals to make, all of whom will be at most the same as the EU and most probably far worse, and a trade deal will take around ten years to make. But you have detached yourself from reality, that doesn't mean it doesn't exsist.



it was you who brought up going to the back of the que, but its a simple fact of life if you don't want to sell to us I'm sure your competitor will. economics 101

And there you go, you will not face the ultimate consequence, you will leave when your vote causes the UK to crash. I have even less respect for your point of view. You have the same back door as Farage, Rees Mogg and the other city bunch. People whom will pay the price have no choice in leaving and a large portion didn't even vote for leaving. I have even less respect for your point of view.


So even though I have been planning my retirement well before the government position prior to Brexit was known I cant enjoy my life if and when I choose to retire early or not, just because on your say so, your dreamin mate

Start charging UK citizens income taxes overseas. In particular make a new Brexit tax for Brexiteers trying to escape consequences.



I am not sure that would be lawful.

Any country charging certain nationalities more in income tax, I think the ECJ and the lawyers would have a field day.

Plus I am not sure how individuals who supported Brexit could be identified.


You would be out of the EU, so the ECJ would not protect you anymore, just what you like to do.


Actually it would.

Third country non EU nationals have taken plenty of cases to the ECJ have they not?

I think A101 would give up his UK citizenship if that was the case.


I have worked and paid my share of the tax burden and have no qualms of paying my share of contributions, after all a government is bankrupt if not for its citizens paying tax

that means his extreme thoughts would not be applicable either as leaving the EU was the will of the electorate
