Bolded: Nail on head, Helen. The success of Brexit hinges on the failure of the EU. We've heard steve and co say so on many occasions. Extortion is what brexit was built on. Buts its a simple and silly thinking to make the EU put a gun to its head and blow its proverbial brains out to save uninterrupted trade with 65 million people by destroying a common market of 450 million. Brexit isn't about Britain doing better its about trying to destroy the Germans and French. Its about turning Europe into another carbon copy of pre-world war 1 where the great powers pushed their proxies into endless wars and colonial endeavours. The British want their empire back and are prepared to blow their own brains if the Germans and French don't do it first. If i was the EU id walk away from any discussion, revert to WTO rules until a grown-up assumes the office of British PM. and if i was Biden id put them on the slow tract trade agreement list for electing the Trump clone. 

That made me laugh.

I dont know why I want the EU to fail, I just do, its funny to me for some reason. Although I will say that we like the French, but dont trust the Germans. As for Trump he is the funniest leader I have ever seen and I hope he wins re-election. I have never been so entertained by a leader before in my entire life. Then there is the British dream of being great again, thats also funny to me in case you didnt guess. Humour with a good old dash of exceptionalism added in.

In some ways I will be sad to see us leave the EU. Nope, its not because of what you might think, its because Farage was so funny and entertaining in Brussels. I think you have to have a similar British sense of humour to get it.

So there you go, we left because it was funny, and because we know we can do a lot better.

EU's Michel proposes €5bn Brexit emergency fund.

EU countries facing a Brexit economic shock are in line to get access to a €5bn crisis reserve, under a draft plan from the president of the European Council.

Mr Michel said the €5bn Brexit Reserve was a “significant” and “new” amount of money that would “support countries, regions, and sectors most affected” by the UK’s departure from the bloc.

If they agreed to a free trade agreement or a no deal today then it would give EU businesses 5 months to prepare.

5 months of planning would stop a shock for them by being thrown into the deep end. They could spend that time understanding their supply chains to minimise the period of unknown. They are shooting themselves in the foot lol.

Nice little pay off from the EU, £91,272, and £152,000 pension after 19 years of loyal service. 

In related News. With Trade deals and agreements coming out of our ears.  the remainers said no-one will want to sign with little old insignificant blighty. what happened?

FDI Investment, you know the investment Remainers would dry up and not happen. FDI at its highest level EVER.

 

 

This should NOT be happening.

no food, no medicine. no jobs, companies leaving the UK in their droves for EUtopia. London financial centre left in ruins as all the banks and financial services leave the number 1 in the world to set up in number 13 and 15 in frankfurt and paris. but it turns out the MIGHTY EU cannot do it.

Talk about U-Turns. and where is the BBC and MSN????? reporting all this.????

Its incredible.

strange that given he claimed they wouldn't give him his pension. 

As for other wee notes - they won't save the UK - Brexit showed the UK for what it is, the people of Scotland and NI now know its united in name only. 

Oh and the article about derivatives - hailed as a big success - did you read it? time limited and derivatives only - and, despite claims to the contrary, was always considered as stand alone negotiations outside of the trade deal.

Potentially good, potentially foreign companies looking to capitalise on the economic fallout from COVID to strip assets from UK companies.

What amazes me is the IMF.

Has that organisation ever gotten one of its UK forecasts anywhere near correct? What is going on with it? Lets have a look - `IMF does have a bias to eurozone, savage report by its OWN experts reveals` lol

https://www.express.co.uk/finance/city/691445/IMF-BIAS-eurozone-savage-report-by-its-OWN-experts-reveals

And why are we paying $20 billion a year into it to receive biased forecasts and pro-EU attitudes back?
