No deal on Brexit? "I am struggling to see a downside”

Katie HopkinsShillman Fellow

For well over a year now, I have been telling my American audiences Brexit will never happen. And it’s become increasingly clear this is true.

At a private dinner of Conservative activists on Wednesday night, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson summarised the UK’s position, reportedly saying there was a high chance of Britain ending up with an arrangement that would violate many of the Brexiteers’ red lines, keeping it “locked in orbit around the EU, in the customs union and, to a large extent, still in the single market.”

He added:

“So not really having full freedom on our trade policy, our tariff schedules, and not having freedom with our regulatory framework either. In essence it would mean the UK had left the EU without taking back control over its own affairs.”

We left without leaving. Try explaining this to an audience that believes so steadfastly in the will of the people. In fact, try explaining this ridiculous idea at all.

People ask: “How is that even possible?” Well may they ask...

can someone spell p-o-l-i-t-i-c-s to me. leaving eu i thought a little crazy, but the majority said go. so then go. but so,so, maybe, could be, so, go would have to be a gone. if amazingly you vote to go back you brits are indeed the weirdest country on the planet. but of course billions of pounds wasted so much the better i guess. now italy and others may want out? come on. still believe in common sense. humans better have that or so,maybe, could be will destroy us.

Keith Barnes….Great link showing the up-rising.
I hope the British are up to fighting for their rights, however if they aren’t fighting back now, when their neighbors are in jail for a nasty tweet, the chances of them revolting are very slim.

The Swedes vote in 3 months; if they gets their freedoms back, perhaps the ineffective British people will finally be shamed into some type of action.

Sky News, Justin Trudeau and Macron together at photo op, I think they are in love, standing so close together that you could not see their arms…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-I9wdjWy-jM …Barnier will be jealous.

Theresa May’s time will be over if she screws uo on the Brexit deal. The latest Poll, financed by Ukip and possibly Nigel Farage, is showing that the number of ‘Leave’ votes has increased to around 82%.
If the goernment ignores 82% of the population, then there will be riots on the streets, this in turn will stir up the Muslim population and London will become a bloodbath…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMYNfQlf1H8….

The full article is well worth the read.
‘No Deal’ sounds like it makes the best sense. Concessions to the EU are apron strings, impossible to cut, ensuring the perpetual manipulation of the EU on what should be a sovereign country in every sense. The Canadian government of the day does not stand with you, but the majority of Canadians do want and are counting on the survival of autonomous Britain.
