    Oh, cry me a river...

    These MPs have lost the plot. They think they can ignore the electorate, but then aren't too happy when it rebounds on them... What a total scumbag; everyone's fault, but his own.

    I think your personal hero, Sir Nigel of Farage should answer this one...

    The UK has never been self-sufficient and the idea that it can replace all imports with locally-produced products is so ridiculous as to beggar belief that anybody would even make such a a statement.

    What a silly question. Are you speaking on behalf of Turkey or Switzerland when talking about them? The UK is important to the EU as part of its internal market. It is obvious to anyone that Brexit will have detrimental impacts on the economies of the EU and the UK and it is also obvious that the disparaties between the EU and the UK mean the UK will take the biggest hit. You don't have to be an economist to see that, you just have to be basically numerate.

    At some time an FTA or something similar will be put in place and trade relations will recover but it's glaringly obvious that the initial impact of Brexit will be negative for all but worse for the UK.

    The UK is not the EU's primary trade market internationally. The exaggerated and typically insular view of the UK's economic importance to the EU is simply more Brexiter delusion and not shared by many outside the Brexit echo chamber.

    That's what the Merkel-May surrender Treaty amounts to, a political exit from the EU at severe cost and no legal right to leave without EU consent which they have no reason to give. Perhaps the idea/fantasy was promoted that at some future time we could purchase piecemeal autonomy in other areas, at further cost, which effectively leaves us in the equivalent of a 'no deal' Brexit scenario under which we would in any case be negotiating a bunch of separate agreements. One step forward, three back.

    I suspect the A50 extension will lead to more of the same, during which the Brexit camp will gradually be worn down, eventually brushed aside by powerful forces, and just one smartly timed motion in Parliament will result either in revocation or a Ref2, and likely without a no-deal option.

    Hope I'm wrong on every point, otherwise we go down with or after the ship.

    While it sounds negative from the Brexit side, IF it turns out anything like that then we should accept and get on with whatever the establishment have planned for us. Likely consequences will be shrugged off as collateral damage and a cheap warning to others, while this episode goes down as the greatest betrayal of a 'democratic' people by their own elected leaders.

    FFS, cut out the hyperbole you ridiculous crybaby. This kind of lachrymose self-indulgent over-reaction is yet another reason the English have become the world's laughing-stock. It's worse than being in a room full of drunk Germans.

    you are not going to be able to sign your own trade deals anyhow, even if you leave the EU and the CU, you are too fooking small to be of any interests for any bigger bloc.

    Remind us again what you fookers produce outside headaches and frigging whining. You have nothing to trade or export

    UK == NO INTEREST FOR ANYONE !!!

    Aw shutup you dumb goat, like you have a clue what's actually happened the past 3 years; lachrymose self-indulgent over-reaction indeed, which thesaurus did you have for lunch? And shows what you know, nothing's worse than being in a room full of Germans.

    You're still sulking at being boxed and ribboned.

    Germany’s Europe minister has accused “90 percent” of the British cabinet of having “no idea how workers think, live, work and behave”, as politicians in the union are finding Westminster turmoil to be a useful argument in the campaign for upcoming elections.

    At the Social Democratic party’s (SPD) conference on Saturday, Michael Roth dispensed with diplomatic etiquette to condemn what he called the “big shitshow” of Brexit.

    One could almost suspect that another group wants to sabotage the poll, do you have any idea of what group that could be?

    What's to sabotage? How many of these petitions have there been since the Gov introduced them and how many have the government taken a blind bit of notice of as in changed policy because of them?

    I'm in Holland, Keukenhof gardens, for the early spring flowers. Picked a good day today with lovely sunshine, though still chilly.
