Will Britain be able to get a "hard Brexit"? Or will it be blocked? Obviously Britain voted to leave the EU on 23 June. However, some remainer politicians are trying to either keep us in the single-market ("soft Brexit") or stop Brexit all together. Will Brexit be blocked? Or in other words: what are the chances of Brexit being blocked? If the Supreme Court rules that...
Still no Brexit strategy from Teresa May. Other than Hard-Brexit. Who will benefit from a Hard-Brexit? Closing ranks, love that. BUUUUUUUUUUUT, Nobody will benefit from a hard Brexit, that's the whole point of having negotiations, but if the EU wants to play hard ball from start to finish, meaning hard Brexit, so as to punish Britain as an example to other wavering EU members states (is that how they close ranks), then so be it, hard Brexit it will be, BUT we're not the ones who'll suffer the most as we don't have a land border with Puntins Russia, thankfully. Sometimes, just sometimes it might be a good idea to look further than the end of your nose, sometimes. But good luck, because your need it.
Do u think Hammond & May are working on basis the Courts will throw-out legality of Brexit vote,so they can say,it wasn't us who cut Brexit?
What is going to happen now with Brexit.? There was hope that Parliament would step in and make a thorough analysis and careful study of all the pros and cons of Brexit before Britain went through with it. Lately, the news says, however, that it's a done deal. The ill effects on Britain, the EU, and the rest of the world already have registered immediately. Still the news says Britain will follow through and exit. It seems that Obama's shoring up the NATO defenses, and Britain's participation militarily in that, has eased the EU's anxiety and given the go-ahead to Brexit.
Hammond says City of London will not stand for loss of prosperity in Brexit talks-What cosy arrangements with the EU will you demand kept? Hammond also said the people voted for Brexit but they did not vote to be poorer or less secure. It will be interesting to see what he plans to do about that but it sounds as if he will use the greater strength he now has in the cabinet to push for the "softer" Brexit businesses and most people want.
Still no Brexit strategy from Teresa May. Other than Hard-Brexit. Who will benefit from a Hard-Brexit? EU closing ranks: Insults and threats from leading UK politicians, from among others, Turk Johnson, are souring the EU leave negotiations before they begin.
