That the UK sees being held to its word given on an international peace accord as an unbearable burden and as some evil plot by the EU is exactly what makes Brexit UK so toxic today.

I bit hypocritical isn’t it, you say the EU is all about being a rules based union, but when a democratic nation use the rules which underpins parliamentary process you don’t like it.

What do you want a country ruled by dictatorship or democratic values?

To the outside world it doesn't matter whether it's only the politicians at the top or the entire population who are tearing up an internationally ratified peace accord.

The effect is identical.

It is just a purely domestic matter who will be blamed for that fiasco by future historians, but it makes no difference to the rest of the world today.



Very melodramatic and totally inaccurate, were are we going against the treaty you have still yet to clarify that aspect

Canada refusing to roll over CETA in case of 'no deal' Brexit!

A 'Canada style' type of agreement, right? :spit:
Remember this is just Canada, the easiest-but-one to do a deal with...
that other one of course being the EU itself, according to International Trade Secretary Liam Fox. :stirthepot:
It will be amuzing to see how the rest of the world welcomes British trade negotiators... and takes them to the cleaners. :white:


Where's the Surprised Pikachu meme when you need it? So much for "holding all the cards".

A brief overview of the current status of the rollover of 3 of the most important trade agreements for the UK, next to the one with the EU:
Switzerland has agreed to give the UK the same market access as the EU gets, but has set very strict quota on work permits for Brits
South Korea has rolled over its recently concluded FTA with the EU on a time limited basis only, thus putting a knife on the throat of the Brits to agree to anything they'll ask on top, or lose it all
and now Canada isn't even willing to roll its FTA with the EU over and is betting on immediately forcing its way onto the British markets without any tarrif whatsoever.

So all goes well, doesn't it?
Zero FTAs ready to be signed the minute after Brexit, but rather just a bunch of trade continuation agreements which invariably contain quota, sunset clauses or unilateral restrictions not present in the EU version of the agreement

Mate you forgot the one with the Faroe Islands. ;)

There is no need to answer made up questions that don´t exist in reality. A border violates the treaty, the UK is currently on a trajectory that requires a border. That is the whole story and everything there is to know.

So far in this process we have not violated any treaty wether we leave with an agreement or not.


Nah, the UK has just made clear that they intent to violate the treaty. That you haven´t violated treaties yet is only due to the EU generosity to let the UK stay for a few more month.If it hadn´t been for that, there would be a border between the RoI and NI right now.

It is a known fact that a hard border has already been seen since the inception of the GFA, and put in place by the Irish government for the case of the BSE outbreak in 2001, the Irish government placed more police and defence personal at check points at the border than the UK did at the height of the troubles. Remainers are protesting that a hard border is a violation of the GFA well it seems that it already has been violated under your interpretation of the GFA, irrespective it was only a temporary border according to you lot it’s still a violation.

Indeed temporary, within the Schengen agreement there is the same provision, if necessary the border can be paroled again. Anyhow, you will seek your own truth, don't know why though, either Brexitremist whom is in self-denial or some other reason for trolling.

Nope the security provisions are referred to as “demilitarisation” will the border become militarised after a no deal exit?

Security installations is a direct reference to the military at the border, in other words demilitarization of the border

SECURITY

1. The participants note that the development of a peaceful environment on the basis of this agreement can and should mean a normalisation of security arrangements and practices.

2. The British Government will make progress towards the objective of as early a return as possible to normal security arrangements in Northern Ireland, consistent with the level of threat and with a published overall strategy, dealing with:

(i) the reduction of the numbers and role of the Armed Forces deployed in Northern Ireland to levels compatible with a normal peaceful society;

(ii) the removal of security installations;

(iii) the removal of emergency powers in Northern Ireland; and

(iv) other measures appropriate to and compatible with a normal peaceful society.

Which linked the article


so? It is still hogwash, the headline is not supported by the article, the headline has nothing to do with it.

You should join the cast of SNL, you will fit right in. :rotfl:


From the article,

What does the Good Friday Agreement say about a hard border?
A lot less than you might think. The only place in which it alludes to infrastructure at the border is in the section on security.
During the Troubles there were heavily fortified army barracks, police stations and watchtowers along the border. They were frequently attacked by Republican paramilitaries.



it say alot more about my position than yours and dealing with facts from the GFA

Well, all of the Brexit arguments have fallen apart at this point. There's nothing left to cling to but straws.

We found out today how it could happen... it was all so that Farage could get himself on BBC radio this morning so the interviewer could suggest he become the new ambassador to the USA!

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but from what I've been reading about the people involved in leaking the story and the way Farage seems to get sympathetic "interviews" on the BBC all the bloody time it looks very set up...

What, make the UK a de-facto Danish territory? :scratchchin: On the downside, they would have to be represented in the Danish parliament, on the positive side we could probably force them to finally adopt a direct representation voting system.

Isn't the diplomatic corps of the UK a professional one? E.g. be a diplomat for 40 years and you might land yourself a top post like being the UK ambassador to the US?

BTW I see that Farage sees himself in another cushion job, instead of dealing with the fall out he created. Typical Brexiteers, hit and run.

Of course, Trump reacted negatively and undiplomatically, as aspected:

Trump wrote:
I have been very critical about the way the U.K. and Prime Minister Theresa May handled Brexit. What a mess she and her representatives have created. I told her how it should be done, but she decided to go another way. I do not know the Ambassador, but he is not liked or well....

....thought of within the U.S. We will no longer deal with him. The good news for the wonderful United Kingdom is that they will soon have a new Prime Minister. While I thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent State Visit last month, it was the Queen who I was most impressed with!


We'll see if Trump feels differently after the new PM is there and perhaps a new ambassador. The feeling towards the Trump administration will not change of course.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Somehow an earlier post did not make it. Thus far the EU and EK have discussed carrot and stick regarding Brexit. About now I see not only the EU, but also the US and likely Canada, emphasizing the stick. Trade agreements will not be made with the UK if a customs border in Ireland becomes necessary. Airbus wings and food and drugs for the UK will get expedited treatment, but other exceptions prior to an acceptable WA will be rare.

Pretty much that has long been announced as the official EU stance in case of no deal: Only limited, unilateral measures exactly where and exactly how far those are deemed in the one-sided interest of the EU and (apart from some specific humanitarian exceptions) nothing more.

Especially no coordination and a full stop on any new deals.

In other words: The Withdrawal Agreement cannot just be sidestepped by dropping down to no deal as Boris and other Leavers try to sell it to their supporters – the same stipulations will remain on the table on any possible path towards any future relationship. The lies and deceptions just never end in the Leave camp.

Given the UK’s closest ally is the USA, both countries will want to keep our special relationship and I am sure this small issue will be quietly forgotten.

special as in "first you are going to remove all customer and consumer protections you have but we don´t".

BDSM is also a special kind of relationship. Enjoy being bottom for the time being. Given the relative sizes of the Economy "special relationship" just means that you are not completely naked after being pulled across the table.

Yes it is... Yet this isn't the first time Farage has tried to publicly give the impression he is "ready" to become ambassador - he famously turned up in the golden elevator right after Trump's election with Trump actually saying he would be a great choice as ambassador!

BTW I see that Farage sees himself in another cushion job, instead of dealing with the fall out he created. Typical Brexiteers, hit and run.


The maneuvering is open and shameless

He would be the worst choice as an ambassador. He is too much self-absorbed to be a good ambassador and has his own agenda.

It always surprises me when this kind of thing is brought forward. Two questions:
- is the UK also the closest ally of the US?
- is the US really UK's closest ally? Based on what?

So they're still discussing Article 24? It's like the Brexit question never moves. People just say the same thing over and over again, no matter if it's true or false.
