    Would love to see Boris find a legal loop hole / tactic so to not have to abide by that treacherous law just passed and see if the Remoaners drag him into court and if they do, will a judge have the nerve to find Boris in contempt and maybe gaol a sitting PM.

    I suspect a lot more twists and turns pre 31 Oct.

    As the alternative is "the Galactic Empire" that Guy "Palpatine" Verhofstadt envisions (one of sinister deception and the subversion of democracy), I'd rather have Hulk.

    This guy Verhofstadt just keeps on giving... "UK must not leave the club because we need you to pay for the geriatric economical misery we're wallowing in".

    At the end of the day, the Brits had a 93bn pound trade deficit on goods with the EU last year. That dwarfed the 29bn pound surplus on services. European companies need a good trade deal with Britain fair more than the reverse.

    Same case as China US trade war, the multinationals that profit the most from the imbalance are lobbying the hardest.

    leo25, are you saying that there will be no "Brexit" at all or any Brexit deal really isn't a true Brexit and still leaves the UL connected to the EU?

    UK (more so City of London) don't want a hard Brexit. EU won't give them a deal they want and I can't see a hard Brexit happening, so they are stuck in a infinite loop.

    My understanding of the Brexit matter is that under the EU treaty, if no deal can be agreed with the EU and the UK don't ask for an extension, then the UK automatically drops out of the EU 1-2 years post end of Jan 2020.

    With Boris likely to command a majority that will prevent the shenanigans of the outgoing / prior parliament re forcing Boris to ask for an extension and not passing the deal, thus I think the EU now know Boris has a better hand to play and if they don't give him the deal he wants, he will opt for a hard Brexit. Whilst the powers that be in the "City of London" and EU can try to prevent, the voters want out and have given Boris the ammo to do so.

    Rules/deals seem to always change these days. So i guess we just have to wait and see.
