Yes Corbyn, the biggest brexiteer in the land won't engage in dialogue with the PM unless 'No Deal' is taken of the table, I wonder wonder who told him to say that. He is playing poker with the our countrys future.

Wouldn't the EU love not to have to worry about a no deal, it would make their life much easier and the UKs life much harder should negotiations start again.

Corbyn was asked 5 times at the weekend as to whether he would have another referendum, he refused or evaded the question everytime. Corbyn wants to to leave, but his party doesn't, with all this chaos he should be streets ahead of the Tories, not trailing like they are, why Labour don't get rid of him and the crones that surround him is a mystery.

 

The EU certainly doesn't want no deal, but will accept the damage rather than compromising it's principals.

 

The UK on the other hand will suffer much more from no deal.

 

No deal is Mutually Assured Destruction - Problem for the UK is it might have a few more missiles, but the EU has 20 times the landmass of the UK.

Labour's no deal position was in the manifesto.

The point I was making tebee is that we cannot take a no deal off the table, it is another weapon in our armoury. It's like secreting a gun on yourself, you probably have no plans to use it, but it's there should you have to.

It's only a weapon if you are prepared to pull the trigger. 

 

There are no indications that anyone, other than a rabid bunch of Brexit zealots, is willing to pull the trigger.

Yes, but the EU has prepared for no deal, we haven't.

 

If we shoot that gun, we'll have to fire it through our own head to hit the EU's leg.

 

Post no deal the only way we are going to avoid things getting so bad we end up with civil unrest is if the EU helps us.

 

People you've just shot in the leg will want a high price to help.

 

No deal leave us in a much worse negotiating position.

point taken,

but I can understand Corbyn wanting to be cautious,

he doesn't want to be held ransom to whatever TM does next

he doesn't trust her, for good reasons

So why is that ? and why would they go against their constituents , many wanting Brexit and in the recent vote to accept TMs deal MPs went against their supporters . One example  of that ; a friend of mine was fuming a couple of days ago when his local MP for Boston & Skegness , Matt Warman , voted to accept TMs deal despite lobbying from his locals . The towns actual Brexit vote was a 75% to leave . So why did he go against his supporters ?

He will be hard pushed to retain his MP status in the next election .

Good man! Putting the interests of his constituents and country before the poorly informed mob.

You seem to forget that a 'No Deal' is the default option and most MPs in the house apart from the SNPs actually voted to leave the EU, it didn't say a little bit of the EU. 

But hey, it did give you a chance to get your overly biased wording "Brexit zealots" out, your day has not been totally ruined.

I doubt even you believe a no deal will happen.

 

The term 'Brexit Zealots' adequately describes those who want Brexit at any cost.

But it's not only that - their salaries/expenses etc. should reflect those for their equivalent in each individual eu country IMO.  They and their civil servants are paid way too much.

 

And as for moving the whole bureaucratic process from one place to another every few months???

 

They clearly have no problem wasting taxpayer money - and no intention of changing their wasteful practices.....

List the salaries you are unhappy with! Compare with head of UK's Motability!

Corbyn is treading on very thin ground here.  His stance may appeal to Labour MPs, but not their constituents in leave areas....

 

It's all a bit strange (as far as I can see) - as whilst Corbyn is not liked by Labour MPs, they were forced to retain him by the Labour membership?  And yet he's still trying to placate Labour MPs?

78% of Labour members want another referendum. 

 

Only fools want a no deal Brexit and they will be ignored by most MPs and encouraged by a few right wing bastards who see a way to make money out of them.

No nuclear war is mutually assured destruction, there will be literally no 'destruction' caused by a clean Brexit you'll just have to pay around 3% more for a BMW, the world will go on.

Silly response. I suspect that you do not understand enough to comment rationally.

Totally acceptable impact of Brexit, in fact I would move into the ‘Pluses’ Column. We need to even out the balance of payments here.
Other additional extra costs should come from new punitive taxes for Land Rovers imported from the EU too. Let’s face it, all British products which have shifted manufacture to the EU should have special import duties placed upon them. Cars, chocolate bars, HP sauce, the lot.

I am confused why anyone would think this. Everyone talks about a No Deal Brexit like its a disaster. It isn't. There is no requirement for the UK Government to apply import tariffs or entry restrictions on the EU or any EU Citizen.

 

We don't have to do any tit for tat restrictions the EU imposes. I am sure that level heads will prevail and the only EU paymaster left in the ring Germany would be okay with that. 

 

The UK doesn't need to deal with the whole EU, It only needs to do a deal with Germany. That's it. The rest don't matter.

guys,

stop pissing into the past - look ahead

What should Blighty do now?

 

may-deal disappeared in the loo (pt)

TM survived the non conf  (alas in my view)

 

Yesterday Barnier said that it might be possible to go back an alter the deal.

France and Germany sent unofficial signals that they might agree to push the Brexit date to March 2020.

 

new scenarios and new possibilities may creep above the horizon

 

what agendas should be set?

But as an aside he has no problems meeting up with the IRA and Hamas, but refuses to meet up with our PM, many people would find that very odd.

yes, I think you are right in saying that many will find that odd

 

however, I don't find it particularly odd,

after meeting with Hamas and/or IRA they are not likely to come after you and destroy your political life in London

 

TM might do just that, she is not a nice lady.

It's not the tariffs that will cause the no deal disaster.

 

It's paperwork and regulations.

 

Every shipment in and out of the country will need a customs declaration. That and the load itself need to be checked at the ports on both sides.

 

No British firms can do any sort of work in Europe that requires any sort of certification because there is no longer any mutual recognition of such certification. 

 

So manufacturing is crucified by transport delays and   services by red tape - British exports to the EU devastated, peoples jobs destroyed.

 

This is what the transition period was supposed to give us time to sort out. 

 

You can't do a deal just with Germany - if countries could do individual deals like that, why would we need to leave the EU to do them ourselves?

We should have single market for services.

 

For goods we need long term investment to boost productivity just as the Japanese have done in the automotive sector

 

pity we don't have a proper government of technocrats
