    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    The Brexit groupies have been banging on for years that leaving the EU will be an opportunity, not a disaster, and that all other talk is ‘Project Fear’. It seems late in the day you are finally realising that businesses in the UK need to place themselves on a virtual war preparation in readiness for the disaster that Brexit will be. And if businesses don’t prepare for the political suicide of Brexit it is all their own fault. You Brexit groupies amaze me. This Brexit disaster is everyone’s fault except for the people who campaigned for it, supported it and voted for it. If you had lived in Nazi Germany in 1939 you would probably have blamed Poland for starting the war in Europe because they had not prepared properly for the possibility of being invaded.

    I seem to remember David Davis stating that it would be the easiest deal ever. So he reckoned he had a cushy job as Brexit Secretary yet ultimately resigned as a failure. All because you reckon that May went behind his back and scuppered his great deal. When is the penny going to drop that these Brexiteers are total numpties only any use for meaningless soundbites and rabble rousing. None of them have a clue hence they are now pinning their hopes on ‘no deal’ which will mean that they don’t have to do anything at all but sit back and watch the brown stuff hit the fan whilst blaming all and sundry.

    Aren’t you of the view that it’s all “project fear” anyway. If so there is surely nothing to prepare for and it will be close to business as usual.

    Possibly because it was nobody’s preferred option. Preparing for worst case scenarios is costly and really should not be undertaken unless there is a reasonable expectation that an outcome was likely. Imagine if every home had to built to withstand hurricanes, floods and major earthquakes on the off chance that one of these may occur anywhere. Houses would be incredibly costly with features most would never need.

    So you are saying that they weren’t incompetent, just total wimps. Either way not worthy of the applause Simmo felt they warranted.

    They were incapable of doing anything. I would have applauded them if they had resigned and put their hand up and admitted it was due to their own incompetence, over-promising and under-delivering. As it is, they resigned in disgrace and should slip quietly now into the obscurity they were suited for all along.

    It was always complex. Who knew eh?

    Quite easily. There is a time limit on the transitional period - so there is an assumption that December 2020 is adequate for that so there should be an extended time limit on the backstop - say December 2022. Let’s face it, if no trading agreement orso,utions to manage cross-border trade have been agreed by then everyone is screwed, not simply N Ireland.

    They know nothing of the sort. Actually a no deal Brexit by default is far more likely than your beloved re-run of a referendum and revocation of Article 50.

    I agree with you. A time-limit on the backstop and back to Parliament.......but will they vote for it? Still can’t see that happening at the moment. The deal has more fundamental flaws than just the backstop......but worth a try.

    Views have become even more polarised since 2016. Any re-run would be close either way and either side ‘winning’ would not determine anything. Brexit has become an article of faith with its proponents making proclamations from the pulpit. The only way to ‘prove’ that no deal Brexit is a bad thing for the UK is to actually do it. Like jumping off a cliff to prove that when you die you really do go to heaven.

    If you believe anything you wrote there you are as much of a fantasist as the hard-core Brexiteers. There ain’t gonna be a referendum re-run. We know little more than we did in 2016 except that Brexit is an absolutely tedious pain in the arse.

    Another binary choice referendum is not an option.

    Well, we are told that neither side want to actually invoke the backstop. If that is true then time-limiting it shouldn’t involve a quid pro quo.
