Well, if you're right, the EU is (sensibly) keeping their powder dry so far.

Surprise! Your boys farked up again. Sorry. Your move. Tick tock...

You could at least try to stay on topic and give your opinion without bringing other topics in (yet again).

The present disagreements within the EU regarding its budget and the loss of UK money is going to affect negotiations with the UK.
The difficulties regarding Poland will also influence (presumably you must know that Poland receives a large proportion of EU funding).
That is my opinion!!!
How is that 'off topic' and not about 'Getting Brexit Done'?????

In any case, it's far from "done". And I have a sneaking suspicion that there's nothing in "no deal" that will kindly serve Boris' political career.

Besides, I doubt the EU could take him all that seriously, despite all the bluster for his domestic audience. And it's not as if the EU can't survive without the UK. In fact, they've already priced it in. Repeatedly. The reverse, however, is a bit different kettle. So, it'll most likely return to "embrace reality or jump off the cliff".

expulsion?? You are so totally wrong about the EU. No wonder you voted Larve. You just don’t get it.

Poles (& Hungarians) will not support any move to leave the EU

(People who live here, or have relatives here, already know that).

Is it more credible when it is on the BBC website? Where it also was?

If you take a look at the BBC site it says Poland may have to leave the EU, the warning coming from Poland's Supreme court.

The Daily Express article says Brussels Fury, Poland could be kicked out of the EU.

Can you honestly not see the difference in the way it's reported?
