What no-deal means is completely unknown - a fact that I will admit is dangerous in itself.Whiskyman wrote: ↑Thu Jan 17, 2019 7:56 amUnfortunately we have the worst of both worlds at the moment. A government unfit and unable to govern and an opposition unfit even to oppose. But unbelievably I do agree with Corbyn that if the bloody woman wants dialogue a "no deal whatsoever" Brexit has to be taken off the agenda. Such a scenario could potentially cost businesses millions.
But, with the PM's deal (rightly) being voted down if we are to carry out the wishes of the people (assuming a second referendum doesn't happen of course) we have 2 choices:
1. Extend article 50, get our shit together and go back with something to discuss and renegotiate with the EU.
2. Cross party talks QUICKLY, and try to get something done by 29 March - because unless another act of parliament is passed that is when we leave under a "no deal" (whatever the fuck that means) and start under WTO terms.
Now, I could be wrong (it has happened once before ) but; if we rule out walking away without a deal we have nothing to negotiate against. The threat of us walking away is currently the only thing that MAY get the EU to cede some ground. Going in to a negotiation, admitting that you simply do not have any alternative to what you are offered is guaranteed to get you a shit deal.
We have heard from Corbyn that he sat down with the IRA, Hamas etc because dialogue is how you move forward. Well, perhaps sitting down with your own fucking Prime Minister to discuss one of the most important political decisions the country has made in living memory will help us move forward, eh comrade? Also, let's not forget that he is paid an additional sum of money on top of his MP's salary because, as leader of the opposition, he is EXPECTED to spend additional time liaising and debating with the government of the day.
Corbyn (and many, many others from all sides) are playing party politics with the future of the country. It fucking stinks.
