Isn't it weird what an utterly catastrophic travesty Brexit is turning out to be?

Why didn't anyone try and warn us about this?

I don't think rejoining will actually be popular enough for quite some time. The current mood is arguably to admit that this whole thing is a mistake but we should go along with it because we said we would.

Apparently support for Brexit is dropping with most people considering it wrong. There's a graph at this link.

I think there'll be a push for a Norway level deal more than any full attempt to rejoin the EU, as the additional conditions to do so will be unpalatable to enough Remainers that it becomes a hurdle the country will take ages to overcome.

There were all of five of them to be fair. :lol:

I often think about PurplePenguin and whether he's still happy with the 15-20 years of damage he thinks might be coming, all so this country could "believe we have a set of balls" again.

We won't be rejoining unless everything is really really gooseberry fool. We will have to fully join and not be the full benefits few responsibilities member we were and many will find that very hard to take.

What leavers don't get it is we had a strawberry floating good deal for no real reason and they have royally strawberry floated it

I guess Shatner fans could just go to America to buy his merchandise.... All that distance for one celeb's merchandise does sound like a bit of a .....Star Trek

It would make me laugh if he feels he has to provide Brexit voters one final act of anti-EU theatre so he can wave the deal in the air like some triumphant wartime leader.

This. This is what really strawberry floats me off. Any future rejoining is going to be way less lenient. We never had it so good.

Maybe more likely that a couple of parts of the UK will eventually split off and rejoin...

In view of Brexit, the British need a deal more than the European Union. The Europeans are ready to continue negotiations. Our conditions are clear and known. It is now up to the UK to choose whether or not it wants a deal.

I'm not convinced Boris will go for anything other than a 'canada style' deal. Obviously the EU will not agree to this, I also fail to see how it will work. Boris has said too often that if we don't get this then we will walk away and I honestly think he's serious. I'm not sure he would be able to cope with doing a u turn and agreeing to something that ties us into the EU.

strawberry floating hell.

Earth to ROTS.

He DOESN'T WANT A DEAL. Boris Johnson is a disaster capitalist. The worse the UK does, the more money he makes.

All this will they won't they bollocks...

Yeeeeeah, I'm glad I generally don't work in the UK anymore. Will stay the strawberry float away for as long as I can. Someone let me know when Scotland breaks away, they're cool.
