    From the Guardian: The reality of no-deal Brexit can no longer be distorted

    Excerpt:
    It becomes more patently evident every day that the Brits have made a colossal mistake in wanting to leave the EU common-market. That mistake, once completed, is going to come back directly and bite them in the backside financially.

    They have stoopidly decided to close the door to their largest trading partner, the other members of the EU - which is one Common Market. And now, having realized their folly, the most egregious of Brit idiot lawmakers want a full Brexit - no accomodations whatsoever. (Because Uncle Sam is going to take the slack! Yeah, right - Uncle Sam is likely heading for his own economic downturn given recent stats.)

    Good luck to the Brits. This folly of yours is going to Cost You Plenty of Economic Anguish ...

    PS: Isn't it curious that I have seen reports of the Brits living in France - both working and retired - who are rushing madly to become French citizens? (Report in French here.) The British community living in France is estimated at 400K, of which 150K have obtained French citizenship.

    Yes, it is quiet strange how they demand to jump of the cliff and might even loose large parts of their country
    Thousands of British ex-pats have filed for German citizenship.
    Johnson met with Junkers over the week end and Junkers is just shacking his head.
    This will be quiet a comedy show till the end of October.

    No they do not deserve the consequences, it was nearly a split vote and nobody had any idea what truly the consequences would be and how badly the UK politicians would screw it up.
    Lets not forget Johnson was installed by his party, only, not by the people.

    It was poorly done the first thing they needed to do was form trade alliances between them, the Commonwealth, the USA, China and cut their own deals with individual EU nations as a Option B to a deal with the EU and offer any other leavers a chance to join this new trade organization with few strings. They have no Option B now and so the EU can pay hardball.

    No one said they can't deal with EU Nations it would be though on the British terms and be a fair deal nation by nation and not with the EU any longer.

    Its called Sovereignty the right of a nation to make its own decisions and then live with them good or bad.

    The Brits will pay the full stoopid price of their stoopid dealings.

    Jesus wept.

    None of that ever will equal the level-of-trade with the EU (on favored terms, that is, no import duties) and British goods/services are not all that competitive anymore.

    No, the Brits screwed-up Royally - it will take another ten-years to fix-it all. Perhaps when the LibDems assume majority power - but even if they are making a comeback, it's not enough to form a government.

    Still, who in their right mind would want a country managed by Corbin or whatever lackey the Conservatives would come up with... ?

    PS: I will never understand how the Brits allowed their two major parties to be led by knotheads. The most level-headed people I've ever met in Europe. Gone off the deep end.

    I like how you say, "Common market". Yes, the UK joined the common market with a commission in the 70's but it was replaced in the 90's by the EU that has a parliament.

    And no, it's not a colossal mistake, what a pile of bovine excrement. That means it's a colossal mistakes all the other countries on the planet haven't joined the EU. Not sure why people believe the EU is the all and be all, bizarre.

    Brilliant rebuttal. As "bovine excrement" goes!

    You (plural) were members of a Large Common Market, and for no apparent reason whatsoever - except that a majority of dimwits in British Boonies who have never had a large-business-relationship with that common-market - GB decided to forgo that market. Because the rules didn't suit them - or so they thought.

    As regards CEA (Collective Economic Assinity) Britain has rarely done better. For you (plural) to understand just how idiotic Brexit is we'll have to wait a wee-bit. That is, when UK unemployment starts ratcheting up towards 10%. Which has already started.

    And if you think that Donald Dork is going to save collectively your sorry arses, think again. He's got the same problem staring him in the face. And we shall all celebrate his downfal with FRENCH CHAMPAGNE! (I plan on inviting Brit-friends living here in France and actually enjoying it!)

    Birds of a feather flock together. (Have a good flock ... ! ;^)
