    A Brexit Deal in any way favourable to UK is and always has been a pure fantasy dream of politicians and the press ever since the referendum day.
    British politicians-civil servants and media- and dare I say - Falkland Island ones as well are living in the same fantasy world here as Argentina and its sovereignty claim.

    UK voted to leave - simple as that. Yes Europe would mostly prefer UK does not - and almost certainly regrets having NOT offered PM David Cameron the few carrots he wanted and needed to get a referendum result to stay in.
    UK crashes out with no deal - massive short and medium term hit to UK- Gib and FI economies. Also a hit to Europe economies - but nothing like the level of damage and economic hardship that UK will suffer. Long term - who knows? Maybe all will be fine- but there will be a LOT of pain first.
    So out we will go - simple as that - with luck UK may persuade EU to spread the damage and closure of free trade etc over several years.
