Everyone in the UK wants the same thing: a free trade agreement with the EU.

There is a lot of BBC-driven nonsense about "a hard Tory Brexit" but there is not a single member of the Conservative Party who has ever said that they want to leave without a free trade deal.

The only difference is between those who accept that we may have to leave without a deal (because the EU makes it impossible) and those who continue to claim, absurdly, that they will not support us leaving without some form of deal.

I say 'absurdly' because there are two parties in this negotiation and we are not able to 'decide' to have a free trade deal any more than you can 'decide' to take Monica Bellucci out for dinner tomorrow night.

The EU doesn't want a trade deal because they fear contagion. Their worst case scenario is an amicable separation in which the UK does well outside the EU. That's why they are doing everything possible to prevent a deal. And that's why leaving on WTO terms is probably going to happen anyway, no matter how hard we try to prevent it.

Corbyn has the luxury of not actually having to take any responsibility for the negotiations, so he can hold absurd, illogical positions that would be political suicide if he were ever to implement them.

Walking in to the negotiations saying that under no circumstances will the UK leave the EU without a trade deal is the same as writing a blank cheque to Barnier and asking him to fill in the amount

I don't expect the EU to change course. Their three 'conditions' are completely unacceptable and should have been met with a refusal to start negotiations until they were lifted. They will continue to obstruct the talks, brief against the UK team, disclose private conversations to the press, openly insult the UK negotiation team and make outrageous demands because this is essentially a political mater for them not an economic one. The survival of the EU is at stake and they will put that before jobs, prosperity and peace every time.

The EU has a 60Bn Euro black hole in its pensions commitments.

The EU has worked out the UK exit bill to be at least £60bn.

Meanwhile the EU has just gone out to tender for new wine suppliers to replenish its £20m stock of wine.

Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron
According to my calculations, the UK contributed around 0.7% of GDP to the EU budget in 2016/17 (16.9 billion pounds).

The IMF does not expect the economy to contract by more than 0.2% in the year following whatever Brexit takes place.

So get out while there is still time.

The UK won't be participating in any of the growth in Europe in this up-cycle, but full steam ahead - let the thought of not contributing to building roads in Poland concentrate the mind!

Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron
Er, you have not understood it correctly. And that is deliberate.

Corbyn said, amongst other things, "
“The issue of Brexit is obviously a huge one in Britain,” he said. “Let me be clear, the British Labour party does not see anyone in Europe as an enemy. We see people across Europe as friends. You are our colleagues, our partners, our comrades and our friends.”

Corbyn added: “Our commitment is clear. We must and will respect the result of the EU referendum but at the same time build a new close and cooperative relationship with our fellow Europeans based on our common interests. We are internationalists.

“So I urge all leaders on all sides – the UK and the EU. The UK and the European Union must take steps together. There is no need for insults or divisive posturing. It is our responsibility to build a relationship that will continue to thrive for generations to come, and we in the Labour party are determined to achieve that.”

May has said, “I set out a few weeks ago in Florence a very bold and ambitious agenda and vision for our future partnership between the EU and the UK at the heart of that remains co-operation on the key issues and dealing with the shared challenges that we face,”

Seems both May and Corbyn want much the same thing .

Infidel 10:12 Thu Oct 19
Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron
So if I understand correctly, if Corbyn becomes Prime Minister he will take over the negotiations and tell the EU that leaving without a deal is not an option.

The EU will then present him with a list of their conditions for agreeing a deal, including £100bn to be transferred from the UK taxpayer to the EU.

That's the entire NHS budget for a year.

It's also equivalent to paying the same net amount into the EU as we pay now for another 11 years after we leave.

Having thrown his fall back position (WTO rules) out of the window, Corbyn can't say no. If he says no there might be no deal, which he is at pains to point out is not even an option for the UK.

So vote Labour for the total humiliation of our country at the hands of Europe and a financial settlement that will divert our already stretched tax revenues away from the NHS, education and pensions and into building roads in Poland and paying for private jets for the EU aristocracy.

Put another way, how many hospitals should we close to finance Corbyn's surrender to Brussels?

Actually wrong there peeps. Not surprising as Thickle has been a wrong 'un for years. Jeremy has actually made himself look more statesmanlike than May ever could which is weird.

Jeremy Corbyn tells Theresa May and EU leaders to stop posturing
Labour leader uses speech in Brussels to call on both sides to take steps together to end impasse in Brexit negotiations

The Labour leader, while scornful of recent comments by Philip Hammond in which the chancellor described the EU as “the enemy”, offered a surprisingly even-handed analysis of the impasse in the Brexit talks.

Speaking at a conference on the future of socialism, Corbyn said both sides needed to take steps to make progress in the negotiations, which are stuck on the details of the estimated €60bn (£54bn) divorce bill.

“The issue of Brexit is obviously a huge one in Britain,” he said. “Let me be clear, the British Labour party does not see anyone in Europe as an enemy. We see people across Europe as friends. You are our colleagues, our partners, our comrades and our friends.”

Corbyn added: “Our commitment is clear. We must and will respect the result of the EU referendum but at the same time build a new close and cooperative relationship with our fellow Europeans based on our common interests. We are internationalists.

“So I urge all leaders on all sides – the UK and the EU. The UK and the European Union must take steps together. There is no need for insults or divisive posturing. It is our responsibility to build a relationship that will continue to thrive for generations to come, and we in the Labour party are determined to achieve that.”

BREXITEERS URGE MAY TO ASSUME NO DEAL IF EU TALKS DON’T PROGRESS

Leave Means Leave letter urges PM to abandon trade talks if no progress is made.

by Westmonster October 19, 2017
A letter to the Prime Minister signed by politicians, business people, economists and military figures has urged Theresa May to assume and prepare for a No Deal if the EU continues to advance negotiations to talking about trade.

It reads: “If at the European Council this week, the EU continues to refuse to discuss the future framework for a trade relationship, we should formally declare that we are assuming that we will be subject to WTO rules from 30th March 2019”.

The letter also makes the point that: “No deal on trade is better than a deal which locks the UK into the European regulatory system and take opportunities off the table”.

The letter is signed by the likes of Lord Lawson, John Redwood MP, Tim Martin of Wetherspoons and Major-General Julian Thompson.

Time for the government to get their act together. If the EU continue to refuse to talk trade, then the country must assume No Deal and prepare for such an outcome.
