Although a genuine threat of no deal may have strengthened our hand in the negotiations, the world and his wife knew how much harm no deal would do to our economy and therefore it actually isn't a threat.
Despite the cries of "project fear" at every mention of something negative happening post Brexit, it was blindingly obvious that it would, economically, be the worst outcome for the UK.
Although some of the chaos at the border which is occurring at the moment may only be "short term", can you begin to imagine what "no deal" would have done.

Again, what is the point of Brexit if we are all significantly worse off :CRAZY: :CRAZY:

5 years since the referendum, doesn't time fly.

There was an interesting article today on how "fighting" the EU on a regular basis is seen as a good policy for the Tories, as a means to "protecting" their new "red wall" voters.
In fairness, not a bad policy, it's just a pity that they cant show any proper advantage to being out of the EU.

Can I give you some advice wrencat

Read the story below

The donkey said to the tiger, 'The grass is blue.' Tiger said, 'No grass is green.'
Then the discussion between the two became intense. Both of them are firm in their own words. To end this controversy, both went to Lion – King of Jungle.
In the middle of the animal kingdom, sitting on the throne was a lion. The donkey started yelling before the tiger could say anything. “Your Highness, the grass is blue, isn’t it?” Lion said, 'Yes! The grass is blue. '
Donkey, 'This tiger does not believe. Annoys me He should be punished properly. ' The king declared, 'Tiger will be jailed for a year. King's verdict was heard by donkey and he was jumping in joy in entire jungle. The tiger was sentenced to one-year jail. '
The Tiger went to the Lion and asked, 'Why Your Highness! Grass is green, isn’t it? ' Lion said, 'Yes! Grass is green.’ Tiger said, '... then why am I sentenced to jail? '
Lion said, “you did not get punished for the grass being blue Or green. You have been punished for debating with that stupid donkey. Brave and intelligent creatures like you have argued with a donkey and have come here to get a decision”
Moral of the story...
Don't Ever Debate or Argue With Donkey - Better Leave Them In Their Own World Of Fantasies


That is what you do with the brexiteers particularly WUMWUM

Interesting story that could be used to describe remainers. Works equally well both ways

Except in the face of all evidence , research and reasoned arguments brexiteers have still to put forward any coherent arguments about how we are better off.


We were told that fishermen would be better off. Please evidence how

We were told farmers would be better off please evidence how

We were told it would be good for the economy please tell us how

We were told it would be better for the NHS please tell us how

We were told it would not impact on British immigrants in Europe I see no evidence of that

We were told it would not impact on NI . No I don’t see that one either .

So it does not work both ways. We have hundreds of examples of how it has negatively impacted many people and are still waiting for the examples of how it benefits us.

No doubt WUMWUM will be along soon with the usual insults and a complete lack of any reasoned argument.

Maybe I will just rename him Eeyore WUMWUM.

Roaming charges to return for travellers to EU.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-eu-o2-data-roaming-charges-b1871484.html

Nobody could have seen this coming. It was totally unforeseeable.
"Brian McDermott, with a wry smile, nods when asked if he remembers a specific incident which made him realise he was a prick. 'I do', he murmurs."
