 Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.

Assuming we leave on Oct 31st, what will happen next?

 

What views does Boris Johnson hold? I did a Google on his views on climate change, he tries not to rock the boat, but he does not believe in climate change.

Rather like his position on Brexit, he will choose the side that he thinks will work best for him in Parliament.

He is in favour of taking action, but only in the far distant future, but he loves to criticise China or the USA.

Well you've got to leave around 6 weeks after calling a General Election so that probably rules one out this side of Christmas but I'd expect one around

late Feb / early March 2020.

It's a fairly accurate description, which word would you prefer?

Offense for offense sake.. says more about you.... not much else tbh :roll:

 

 

 

Johnson doing his Trump impression:

Utterly ridiculous.. it'll appeal to the woof woofs tho... sadly :(

 

I stated my alternative and suitable wording earlier. 

 

Thanks for reminder that im not watching the news. My point is that if you accept the media wouldn't use that analogy for trade negotiations then chances are there is a reason why. Which is that is inappropriate and other perfectly other words are suitable to convey the point. 

 

So it's not offense for the sake of it and it's perfectly reasonable to suggest alternative wording.

De Pfeffel is in full on Trump mode.

 

The first rule of Brexit, is to blame everyone else.

 

▪️Blame Remainers.

▪️Blame the EU.

▪️Blame Parliament.

▪️Blame John Bercow

If by ‘media’ you mean television, then there are two reasons why they wouldn’t use the word ‘rape’ to describe a predatory US trade negotiation. One is that they have certain words which they try to avoid using as they tend to generate complaints to the regulator and two, they are bound by charter to be politically neutral which prevents them making statements which are seen as being ‘partial’, in this case about Brexit.

 

As has been pointed out before, this is an internet forum which does not operate under the same constraints as other media.

My point still stands that more appropriate language would be better suited. As you know you can't say whatever you like on the internet and forums. 

 

Move on with the discussion please.

Are we agreed then, that the US will take advantage of a weakened UK in any trade negotiations after a no-deal Brexit, whatever people choose to call it?

This idea is dead in the water already due to one major fundamental problem? 

 

It's called Jeremy Corbyn.   Who but the desperate would want to align themselves with Corbyn & make him a de facto PM? 

 

There won't be any stomach in the HoC to support his ambitions.  Thank God.

No chance of US trade deal if Irish accord hit

Don't anyone be fooled by Pelosi's fake concerns for the future of N. Ireland & the Good Friday Agreement. 

 

All we are seeing here is the UK & N. Ireland be used as collateral damage in a war between the Democrats & Republicans.  Many times in posts on SF people spout that the US only has its interests at heart in any future, post-Brexit agreements with the UK.  if that's the case, then Pelosi's apparently also willing to put US jobs at risk for the sake of a spat with Trump.

Well yes but that was never my argument in the first place
