    Until March 2021...
    Old Greg - In search of acceptance since Mar 2007. Hoping each leap will be his last.

    They are just waiting for a more favourable exchange rate.
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.
    Hands... out infractions
    Face... the music
    Space... between the ears

      They still won't be able to afford to repay.

      Never mind, maybe the Germans will help.

          The divorce bill is not binding until parliament approves the draft withdrawal agreement.

            Gratis, as they say.

              A withdrawal agreement if/when approved, will become the withdrawal agreement.

              FFS, you remainers really are as thick as mince.

                Just leave the EU and don't pay.

                No one is going to enforce a hard border with Ireland. Don't pay this divorce bill.

                If EU want a trade war, then we can hardly protect them in Nato. So pull out of that. Trump will love it.

                Lets see how long the EU sticks together in a trade war, imagine having a country with an economy the twice the size of Russia and nuclear weapons as a neighbour and pissing them off.

                It's going to be great. Like the old days.

                    Yes, it will.

                    And the three main heads of any agreement with the EU will consist of citizens rights, the U.K. border on the island of Ireland, and the financial settlement. Whether this happens before October, or whether the U.K. leaves with no deal and then seeks a trade agreement afterwards, makes no difference. Those are the three things that need to be settled before any future relationship is discussed.

                    Honestly, this has been told to Brexiters time and time again. Are your ears painted on?
