That's because "project fear" is finally sinking in as project reality. They will be practising their "I voted remain"  body language in the mirror as we speak. Bring it on, no deal the noobs, I've been good to go for ages now. Even Labour government proofed myself. :)

 

No it will be "Not what I voted for" to attempt to distance themselves from the fallout.

Far too late by then, they'll be eating that fallout just the same.

 

And that fallout is already here: some international firms have today started to refuse getting paid in £s. UK debtors caught by the measure and having to convert into $ or € have just seen their balance owing increase by double-digit %. Crispin Odey, backer of Farage and Johnson, must be on to something when he's shorting UK plc (betting on UK companies making substantial losses) to the tune of £300m.

 

The EU27 got briefed today, it's official: Johnson's government has zero intention to negotiate.

 

Hard no deal Brexit it is, then. Bring it :twisted:

 

(for the avoidance of doubt, there's no such thing as a 'managed no deal': the only 'managing' there is, is what bits and bobs the EU27 are keeping for themselves short-term, to help their own no deal contingencies...and can whip away at the drop of a hat: zero control by the UK there, regained or otherwise.

The sad thing is some people will relish the misery that a no deal will wreak on people.

People who voted for Brexit are ringing in to radio phone in shows saying

"Yes well there will be a bit of chaos at the beginning everybody knew that", then when challenged by the radio host that chaos definitely wasn't predicted 3 years ago; they become all defensive and vague, bitching about "remoaners patronising people who took the democratic decision to leave". :loopy:

Those who thought that they were ‘sticking it to the Man’ when they voted to leave the EU would do well to remember this. 

 

‘The Man’ is doing very nicely out of Brexit, thank you, and the clues were always there when you looked at who was actually pushing for the referendum and backing the Leave campaign.

That's LBC on repeat for the past 3 years isn't it?

He’ll be well chuffed that a retired lorry driver from South Yorkshire has bunged them a wedge!

The people they think this is going to hurt have spent more than 3 years preparing.

 

Brexiters are hurting themselves. Talk is big but when their own economic existence collapses around their ears talk counts for nothing.

Indeed, and there's even a few on here.

Well, about that...

 

Fresh from having David Frost outline the UK's official position of 'no negotiations' to the EU, Johnson has now stated that he will defy any vote of no confidence and refuse to resign.

 

Someone sure took control alright.

 

You've effectively become a banana republic under orders from Johnson's backers, in less than 2 weeks.

 

You guys should be out-protesting the Chinese from Hong Kong, in streets the length and breadth of the UK, and trumping the Miners and Poll Tax protests of old by now.

 

But no.

 

Johnson's promising £bns here, there and everywhere, of taxpayers' money that was available for public services and investment for years (and shamelessly

 calls it new money, to boot!) and, seemingly, the great British public just onboards it all apathetically, and gets back to their normal. Same as last 3 years.

As I was saying only last week, there is no sentimentality in trade negotiations. 

 

A desperate and weak post Brexit UK, is going to be rinsed by all the major world players and will end up taking what it can get. We will be like a skint bloke going into a pub and selling his £100 watch for a fiver.

 

And what those shouty Brexiteers who are looking to see a return to an all-white Britain need to realise, is that a desperate UK Plc is going to have to give away employment and residency rights in exchange for these deals.

But this can't be new information for people. You could tell how this was going to go for years. Umpteen people have said it in the media, and it's been mentioned on every brexit thread on here. It's obvious.
