I don't get this... There are no 'sides'..

Britain bad mouthed the EU. for yrs and yrs.. Most of it based on the lies told by one Boris Johnston the well paid reporter whose father was the well paid MEP,both based in Brussels. These 'lies' formed the basis for Britain's growing dissatisfaction with the EU . When these 'lies ' were finally discovered . Nigel Farage moved into view and made up some more lies. All intended to coerce the British public into making a decision for a private agenda set by the Oxford set et al.The set that did not want Bruselles to have any say over a country they felt they had the god given right to rule.

The British then held a referendum based on those.lies . Not surprisingly the leave vote then won

The EU meanwhile has remained the same as it always was. Not subject to lies.or hysteria, Carrying out its duties diligently. Britain decided to leave. Britain is thus required to come up with the plan of action that is required by the terms of their membership. That they have failed dismally ,publicly ,and humiliatingly is entirely their fault.

sigh......

There are "negotiations" ongoing between two parties (or sides) one being the Rump EU (sometimes called the 27) the other being the UK (sometimes called the popular front). These 2 parties are the sides referred to above.

SIMPLES :sneaky:

When are you moving from your Rump EU to your popular front ?
Surely you do not want to stay in the EU ?

Didn't you say the EU did NOT want to negotiate ? :confused:

Sometimes you are very difficult to follow ...

:rofl: No I said Barnier's opening position was not to negotiate and he is an idiot. The EU will negotiate as it did in phase 1 and it is Merkel and Macron who will do the actual negotiating at the last minute whilst DD and Barnier posture away.

Should I be in the people's front then?

Oh and one hope to complete on a house in Yorkshire by middle of January next.....

Yes, that is what you said, but it turned out to be false.

Good luck with your house.

Given that the UK entered the negotiations with little idea of what it wanted and still does not or can present a united face who can blame the EU for taking full advantage.

A rump state is the remnant of a once-larger government.
As the UK hasn't actually left yet, the EU isn't really a rump yet, is it? The UK is still a part of the EU Parliament and the Council of Ministers, and is only separate from them for Brexit-related items.

agreed but I was merely using the vernacular of the Scottish Nasty Party in a similar context, on reflection they, and I, are both using it wrongly.
