    Today's news...not enough progress made to move on to trade talks.

    The EU seem to want us to agree to their demands on payment of the “exit” fee, EU citizens rights protected by the ICJ and no border with Eire BEFORE they will open talks on trade.

    So they get everything THEY want and could then dictate trade terms to their advantage.

    Then any EU country could veto this if it felt like it.

    It seems they want to nail our hide to the wall !

    I am now of the opinion that I don't want anything to do with an organisation that behaves like this. Out, and the sooner the better.

    We might as well embrace WTO tariffs...leave and pay them nothing...
    We will suffer, but they will too and the sooner they realise that the UK will cut its nose off to spite its face, the more realistic and beneficial a future relationship will be...

    I was pro-European, but like Clyde I am thinking..fcuk 'em...

    Do you really believe that your mangy, rat chewed, moth eaten Brit hide is worth nailing to the wall?

    Your post reminds me of the old joke in which a robber, having being confronted by the police, raises his pistol to his temple and shouts, “Get back or I'll shoot!”

    When negotiating with the Germans, oops I meant the EU, one has to realise you are actually negotiating with the Germans. You vill obey!

    Negotiations are all a waste of time as Davis, May et al are well aware. Its gratifying to see those who were happy to remain changing their opinions now that they can see what many who voted out knew all along.
