If he's negotiating for the EU he has every right. They are not obliged to accept whatever terms the UK offers.

You absolutely can. Provided you cremate them first.

Ruin a perfectly good carpet though.

On the other hand, the Turks are about to swarm in so should be pretty easy to pick up a replacement.

The EU Looks Like the Dying Soviet Empire | The National Interest


"The EU, like the old Soviet Union, is a geopolitical entity based on an ideology.

Both enterprises began rupturing when reality stood at sharp odds with the ideological goals they professed"

Only a brief excerpt, but I think it pretty well sums it up.

Was under the impression, they have NO say.... YES THEY CAN MAKE A DEAL.

BUT leave the single market and freedom of movement no ?
(he shouldn't have the right or the nerve to tell us what to do)

We voted leave = get the hell out, do what we want.


Good jesus, seems they're at it again.


no doubt the EU are scared shitless now.

He doesn't "tell us what to do". But they do control the terms under which the UK will trade with the EU. They don't have to offer access to the single market if we don't offer what they want in return. You might not want access to the single market, but I'm pretty sure the government, the finance sector, and foreign investors do, for a start. And even if they didn't, new deals would have to be struck with the involved countries, rates agreed, etc etc. It will be all deals, all the time. That's what the industry, finance, and arms sectors want. They don't give a damn what color your passport is nor how independent you feel. All that is irrelevant.

Making a deal isn't being told what to do. Deals are necessarily two-sided (at least) and usually each side gets something, but not all, of what it wants. Get used to it. Once out of the EU the UK will have a lot of deals it will have to make.

Yet these are difficult times in the EU with its Brexit, migrant and monetary woes.
'Turbulent times'

"An existential crisis" said European Commission President Juncker this week.
"Turbulent times marked by crisis and conflict," said European Council President Tusk, the host of today's summit."


Pretty well sums up what a tragic goddam shambles the whole EU crock of shit has turned out to be.

And the Italians are up in arms again!

Yeah, with 79 million of them en route, they're bound to bring a rug or two.

Please explain if the EU is in crisis why it is sterling that is falling.

Using your logic sterling should have risen .

Good question but I honestly have no idea, however from the reports on the Bratislava summit it would appear that the EU leaders believe they have a number of crisis to deal with.

Also from your earlier post if in 2008 as you state there was a global recession why was it that sterling fell against the € and not the other way round ?.

Also you state that the fall in 2010 was also the result of a global crisis so again can you explain why it was the £ that fell and not the € ?

Can you pick out the UK in this map? (Hint: it's that little red dot with a circle around it).

When you look at the uk in that perspective doesn't it make you feel proud?
It does me!

That a small dot on the map could've been so powerful and influential? Well, that was pretty impressive.

But like you say, Brexit is brexit. Back to just a dot now.

6th.

It was overtaken by France after the referendum.

It may be worth pointing out that we were the 5th largest economy as a member of the EU.

Will we be the same post-Brexit? Who knows...
