Teribus BS: Post Brexit life in the UK (6498* d) RE: BS: Post Brexit life in the UK 24 Oct 17

My complaints against the so-called negotiators are that they do not put the interests of their country first.

In what way are they not putting the interests of their country first? As far as you are concerned the only way any British negotiator will do that is to fly over to Brussels and say loudly to anyone that will listen, "Sorry chaps we've made one hell of a mistake, but we were only being "whimsical", we really didn't mean it, can we come back into the fold please and we will forget the whole thing." Well sorry Shaw that is simply not going to happen, we have triggered Article 50 (Parliament voted for that - not just the Conservative Party) and on the 29th March 2019 we will all wake up and we will be out of the EU. The British negotiators are in Brussels to get the best deal for the UK and if that happens to be a "No Deal" due to the intransigence of the EU negotiators then that is what will happen. Whatever deal is proposed must be put before Parliament and Parliament has to agree to it (So if it IS "No Deal" then it will have been Parliament that makes it so)

That they are seen as incredibly weak because Theresa May is operating without an overall Tory majority and has guns pointing to her head. No wonder the EU wants to keep her afloat. They can't lose."

Total irrelevance to the Brexit negotiations.

That they still appear to hold dear some illusion that the UK is a major world power that can call the shots. That they are grooming us into thinking that no deal would be some sort of good thing."

There is no illusion about the UK being the fifth largest economy in the world Shaw.

There is no illusion about the UK being the second largest net-contributor to the EU's coffers.

There is no illusion about the UK being one of the EU's best internal customers

There is no illusion about the UK being 13% of the EU's population.

Oh and "No Deal" is most certainly a thousand times more preferable to a bad deal that is not in the interests of the UK.

That David Davis completely lacks credibility.

Who with? YOU?? In what way does he lack credibility?
