The UK is going to get an object lesson in collective bargaining and, to a lesser extent, economies of scale real soon.

You just wait.  Boris is going to pull out all the flags and claim everything is British again.  Just like in the Empire days.

Why don't we skip these silly articles, let the UK drop out without a deal if they want it so badly and have a decent talk in about a year from now.

Okay so like everywhere is the worst case scenario possible. But you shoudl at least keep in mind that the worst possible case in the UK is Covid and Brexit together, whereas the worst case possible everywhere else is Covid. Poland and Hungary are trying really hard to equalize the possible worst cases (if they get their way with that EU budget thingy), but the reality is that the United Kingdom has a worse worst than the EU's worst.

And so it should be. As the great Jacob Rees Mogg so rightly pointed out, a hard brexit will benefit the UK by £135bn over 5 years, and then £40bn a year thereafter. You don't see Leave supporters backing away from these claims, now do you? All we have to do is wait, and we'll be proved right.

lolmao500: You know who else prospered without trade deals? Nobody in human history, thats who.


My dear fellow, the UK has been striking plenty of trade deals. Why, just recently we struck a new deal with Japan which, as the Department for International Trade pointed out: "Government analysis shows that a deal with Japan will deliver a £1.5 billion boost to the UK economy."

Compare that to the pitiful £2.1 - £3bn the government estimated the UK would benefit from the trade deal the EU negotiated with Japan, and you can clearly see the great future that awaits us as an independent trading nation, free from the shackles of the EU.

If you can put up with poor sound recording, this bootlegged Stewart Lee show does an amazing job of pointing out the similarities between Brexit and the 2016 US election.

/For those who won't suffer amateur bootleg recordings because you are younger than GenXers like me, spoiler alert, the joke is he opens the show with some great stuff about Brexit, how one shouldn't generalise about why people voted for Brexit, "It wasn't just racists that voted for Brexit..... coonts did too". Then he opens the second half of the show with exactly the same gags but this time about Trump's election, and by the time he's saying "it wasn't just racists that voted for Trump" the audience is in hysterics.

BoJo is a farking moron. I'm sure we're already across this, but let me explain today's reason.

The UK was too slow in the early days to get onto COVID. The great British public which pulled together in times from the plague to the blitz has done a less than stellar job of adhering to the rules, significantly in part because their leadership has not taken the pandemic seriously enough and if leaders can't lead then folks won't follow.

In large part, BoJo's hesitation to shut down parts of the economy is because he's terrified that Brexit will be blamed for poor economic results. So the pandemic in the UK is now much worse than it needs to be. And the need for lockdowns is now greater. An early attack on COVID would have saved a lot of trouble but it's way too late now. So the economy is going to hell as it enters the usually vital Christmas period because Boris was too obsessed with Brexit and dropped the ball on COVID.

Now he's still barking about Brexit at a time when it should be on the backburner for the next few months.

The fact is that with the right leadership and the right national approach, the UK can make a success of Brexit. Hell, it might even be good for places like Australia too if agricultural and wine trade increases with England. But if they're relying on BoJo to provide this wisdom and leadership, good farking luck.

Boris is quitting the minute the UK leaves the EU. Then, just like Trump's post presidency, he can bitterly complain about his successor not staying true to his vision.

theflatline: Brexit can never be a good thing and as usual  you have shiatty hot takes.


I'd agree that Brexit has massive economic costs compared with remaining in the EU and nothing I said contradicts that.

But given it's happened, and there's no going back, the question is what happens from here. Does Britain simply sink and go away, or can it make the best of the situation its created? The answer lies in what happens with future trade deals.

But you don't seem interested in facts, context or economics or you would have, you know, actually mentioned some detail rather than just call me shiatty. Do better.

The Pound Sterling was hitting a twenty year low well before COVID, not to mention banks and other businesses were moving assets and headquarters to mainland Europe or Ireland pretty much from year one.  The UK economy was already in the shiatter, COVID just added another turd.
