From here in Germany the UK comes very close to be just another version of Humpty Dumpty.
Charles Jaja-Sackey (1 month ago)
At the end of the day, Brexit is about Sovereignty vs Market Access (Economy). Everyone is always ready scream about what they don’t like about Brexit, but don’t really want to face the hard tradeoffs they’ll have to make. By and by, if you want sovereignty, you will inevitably lose market access and come to terms with a diminished/suboptimal economy. If you want market access and an optimal economy, you would have to surrender some degree of sovereignty. We must come to terms with this reality. And unless we do, we’ll continue to dance around this and kick the van down the road. Eventually we must decide.

What is the financial gain to be obtained by the Financial Services sector of the UK by trade with third world countries in Africa, South America, Southeastern Asia, the Middle East and the numerous quasi-soverign "Stans" of the now defunct USSR once Brexit takes place? Does the EU have substantial controls over financial services offered to these areas that protect against criminal profiteering? Are there groups within the UK, or affiliated with the UK which want looser control over money laundering, profiteering, corrupt practices, criminal gangs - obtained through a detached UK - that would otherwise be prohibited under EU membership? Are there groups in the UK driving the break up of the EU-UK partnership - using abstract concepts of autonomy, sovereignty, border control, immigration as a mask for some other goal? Remember how the Great Recession was created by the unregulated banking industry? The selling of hedge funds which had bogus ratings of value had delivered huge profits for a while. But eventually consumers started to pick more carefully. This led to inventing an insurance business to allow hedge funds to continue to be sold. When the worthless hedge funds became unsellable, even with insurance, the insurance claims started to roll in. There was insufficient money reserves in the businesses that had created or purchased worthless hedge funds and sold them with insurance contracts they could not cover and the whole scheme collapsed. Investment banks in the US are not considered regulated financial entities. There were few laws in place that protected the consumer from being sold "investment products". Afterwards the controls that were put into place often had more to do with how the US government would unwind bsnkruptcies of unregulated banks. There were a few requirements added to limit the selling of financial products to some pension plans and some requirements for clear warnings the funds were not insured by the US Government, but basically unregulated investment banks are considered more like a casino visit than a savings account. Financial services are a great incubator of corruption. Often the corruption escapes detection, allowing the criminals to exit well before the crime is realized. Is Brexit going to allow a looser control over financial services than the EU now allows? There must be some bigger reason for Brexit than just the ones called for publicly. The sheer danger of a No Deal Brexit should have everyone in a high State of concern. Why isn't this in evidence across all components of the people and businesses of the UK?

Mark A. Cassar Well, it's not a marriage, it's a membership. If you don't wanna pay for it, good for you. You can leave. But as non member you should have zero expectation about the remaining members giving you a break because of the "good old times". That's not how memberships work.

Stephen Lediard (10 months ago)
And just one more comment. Why didn't the government ask the EU bureaucrats for an estimate of how much it would cost for the UK to leave the EU and what exactly it would involve, before the referendum? And, don't give the excuse that everyone thought the UK would remain.
Taint ABird (10 months ago)
@ Stepehn Lediard Because they didn't have a plan. Is it not obvious? They didn't have a plan because they didn't actually expect to win.
Stephen Lediard (10 months ago)
I would also like to add that the UK was never a convinced EU member. If the UK had made more effort to make the EU work better then I think we would be in different situation to what we have now - and that is a very big mess. The moral of this whole episode is - never go into something with half a heart.
Taint ABird (10 months ago)
@ Stephen Lediard Oh dear. That does not inspire confidence in Brexit, does it.
Stephen Lediard (10 months ago)
It's a great shame that there was a referendum. The UK should have worked within the EU to get what it wanted. With almost 50% wanting to remain, it really has split the country and perhaps the UK. It has also made, literally, millions of people unsure of their futures and this has all hung on a black / white referendum that did not go, in a convincing manner, in any particular direction.

I really don't understand what Great Britain is trying to achieve with their Brexit .... I mean, they will probably get more sovereignty but besides that? I'm not really informed about the start of Brexit and the first referendum but wasn't it so that most of the people who voted didn't even know what Brexit was or what it meant? As soon as I heard about the decission I was speechless, because the EU-market is one of the greatest things for europe and especially for an island nation such as GB. On the one hand I feel pity for the british citizen who voted against Brexit but on the other hand I think that the people who voted for the Brexit wihtout even informing properly about it deserve the bad looking future. In the end I think they got their because of two main reasons for the Brexit were the believe that GB still is a "big power" and should receive special treatment by the members of the EU while not having to follow the rules if possible, for example using their own currency instead of the euro. But this is more an assumption by me than an actual fact :D. The second reason i came up with is the poor informing over the topic or blindly believing some politicans who were blaming GB problems on the EU instead of trying to actually fix them. So if somebody who is for the Brexit could explain to me why and what the Brexit will supposingly do in your opinion I would be thankful. Furthermore if someone agrees with me but has more facts or possible corrections I would be happy to hear them as well ... wish you best luck with Brexit :D

Australia, Canada, New Zealand. Our Kin are out there in the wider world, we should be with them not the EU. No longer subjects but equal partners in a CANZUK alliance. You can see today the British Identity being traded for a generalized European one, this is possibly the only chance we can preserve our union of great britain and northern ireland and have a real impact outside boosting other economies and not just the one closed market we find ourselves in the EU, Raising our GDP by $2000 and those we wish to partner with, this isnt about reliving past legacies but forging new ones. Think Big, Be Brave and Embrace Opportunity.
Taint ABird (10 months ago)
All of these countries will prioritize their trade deals with the EU over a trade deal with the UK. In any case, trade deals with of these countries together will not even replace the value of the trade you will lose with the Irish. By leaving the SM and CU you will be effectively putting a trade barrier between yourselves and Ireland. In economics, gravity applies: you trade more with those closest to you because the return is higher.

I thought Brexit would be Britain exiting the EU. Now they are crying because the EU does not want to let them keep being part of some of the EU aspects? You are negotiating what you want to keep in the EU? Brexiting some details and negotiation not to Brexit others. I hope there is no deal, it would be what people thought they wanted and would make for entertaining videos.

Maybe Theresa May purposely made a deal that no one would agree with so that there is a second referendum and we end up remaining. After all, she did vote remain in the first place. Maybe shes smarter than she looks.
Mike Reger (10 months ago)
How did we get here? Theresa May’s treachery. As soon as she unleashed Chequers it was clear that she had no intention of Britain leaving the EU, she went around her own Brexit Secretary’s back, betrayed her party, her people and her country. Biggest liar and traitor since Tony Blair. She should have been binned the day after Chequers, and every day she remains PM is another day too long.

Jari Sanou (10 months ago)
Apart from every argument for and against Brexit, there were and still are, fundamental unaddressed aspects to the whole membership referendum of 2016, namely: 1: Constitutional amendments require more than a simple majority. Why this larger majority? Because these are laws that influence the most laws in the country, affecting the most people. In the case of a Brexit, this would have an even bigger impact (none knows how big, which is even more frightening) than one constitutional amendment, which is why the referendum should've been AT LEAST 2/3 MAJORITY, for it to justify taking a major turn towards Brexit after being in the EU for over 40 years. 2: The referendum was set to have zero, ZERO, legal power; it was just an opinion poll, (partially) to see whether the government had to push harder to renegotiate the asylum system for the entire EU. Fundamentally, there is no justification for Brexit to happen the way it has, whether you're a Leaver or a Remainer. You fundamentally don't make decisions with this large an impact based on an opinion poll with a simple fucking majority.
Joseph Maxwell (10 months ago)
Theresa May is a robust political animal. Despite calamitous failures in her judgement, calling a general election then losing her majority and now this toilet paper EU deal with its forever backstop agreement enslaving the UK forever. A slime ball operator, of that you can be sure!😎
Martyntd5 (10 months ago)
The choice between a really bad deal and a no deal brexit was the only choice that was ever available. That has been the situation from day one. The idea of a so-called 'soft' brexit, is and has always been a complete nonsense. If that reality had been recognised straight away, we would have had 2 years to prepare for a WTO/Canada+ brexit. Instead, the WHOLE of Westminster has spent that last 2 years squabbling over fantasy a la carte brexit choices that were never on the menu and for that, I dont just blame the PM, but the whole of the political classes.

rufanuf1 (10 months ago)
A myriad of silly comments below. A few objective ones. Brexit happened because of at best the incompetence of politicians both sides of the channel, and at worse thru decades of outright abuse of positions of power by politicians on both sides of the channel. Channel 4 News itself is a great example of the depth of the deep state that has taken root in our democracy there tentacles have a grasp on all kinds of media outlets. Ollie Robbins and others have stopped taking their instruction from our ministers and instead are advising them on what suits the establishment, and our ministers have stopped listening to their constituencies and instead are just following a "career" path, they are no longer public servants. Democracy has broken down, and unless we leave completely REGARDLESS of economics, then the UK really does have a bleak future.

Where May got everything wrong was right at the beginning, she tried to negotiate when she should have concentrated on no deal and all the options that goes with it. She should have just let the EU make offers and done no negotiations. If they made a good offer things may have gone better. Negotiating with no negotiation skills is never a good option.

Theresa May, appears oblivious to her rock-bottom popularity and reportedly believes that more of her dire ‘leadership’ is what the British people want. So when did the UK discard democracy and become a dictatorial tyrannical government? Megalomaniacs with nation-killing policies.The British GOVERNMENT are no longer fit for purpose. Toxic May has to be congratulated .the Conservative behavior is sedition. A vote for a Conservative is a vote to destroy England The Gov. is so far gone.British intelligence now officially a by-word for organized crime .Protests and elections will not do it alone,..I fear that Violence is the only way to take back your country...I really hate saying this...But Look...has anything gotten better? Its Worse...The Corrupt Gov. and The Corrupt Police..will just Bully people harder.The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it. These days, the worst traitors in the realm sit in the House of Commons. Our MPs are the worst they have ever been in history.

Albert Pike (10 months ago)
@Marek Mazur I have never been a slave and have been lucky enough not to ever have a job that I hate. It is sad that most people are slaves but they enjoy their servitude and are not intelligent to be aware. The EU are moving towards war with Russia and my sources told me yesterday this could happen as soon as next year and definitely before 2020. The British people must not take part in this EU war and they have to make sure the government understands that they not comply. I am sorry that you will be in the middle of this war but you seem to support the EU Reich and life usually gives you what you ask for, even if you do it unwittingly.
Marek Mazur (10 months ago)
the EU is like that job you hate and always say you're going to leave, and when you finally do and start another, you wish you'd never left. If course the EU in its present shape is a neo-Marxist soft dictatorship, but there is growing awareness and opposition to it in the central/eastern memberstates, what we want is to be in Europe that cooperates together but also protects its countries' identities and tradition, which actually was once the very foundations of the EU . If there's enough of us in Europe we will be and we are becoming a force to be reckoned with. It's a great shame you decided to leave as you have been one of the more influential countries, and a balancing power to some of the crazier Eurocrats' crackpot ideas, without a major player like Britain it's going to be much harder now.

What kind of People’s choice was that anyways, if the referendum outcome was closer to the sampling margin of error than to an actual choice pro-Brexit? Do you think British economy and production is strong enough to uphold the international competition?

UK is not the colonial empire anymore, you seem to keep forgetting it.

Hog Wash which part is not true? That the Brexit deal was advertised by the traitor Farage for Russian oligarchs money and British People will loose on it? True, UK would probably get rid of EU ‘citizens’ sucking on social benefits, few dozens pounds gained per year/ one household, and at the same time will loose much more on trade, services exchange, currency exchange and so on...How can you be so sure that there is enough gold to back up British pound in the National Treasury?

The key event was the 2017 General Election - The People voted to remove the Government’s majority. It is delusional to expect a minority government to be able to deliver something as economically painful and controversial as Brexit.

Whatever anyone's views on Brexit, we voted to leave and had a real opportunity to do something with that. That opportunity has now been squandered and we've ended up with a half-assed, compromised mess that no one is really happy with.Britain doing what it does best, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory and failing. The British detest success.

It's called modesty. And despite everything, we will win through ... like we always have done and always will do.

We got here because politicians do what they want and not what the people voted for. (Right or wrong).🇬🇧

How did we get here? Political opportunists blaming the EU for policies that they've always had full control over. And bigoted people falling for it.

She is out of her depth. The men who she had to negotiate with in the EU never took her seriously...

Perhaps; I suspect that it's out-and-out collusion. She and most British parliamentarians are bought and paid for. Nor are British politicians the only ones.

Not learning any foreign languages, re-running war movies all the time and delusions of a "past golden era" that never really existed got the majority of Britons here. The occasional stints into socialism (I don't mean Blair here) in the forties to seventies helped sliding the slope a bit faster...
