    What's the betting now?

    So, Coronavirus has slowed things down (almost to a standstill) and the EU have got much bigger fish to fry. Do you think that means they'll just stick with take-it-or-leave-it soft Brexit on the grounds they just can't be bothered any more, or will they cave in and let Cummings have his Canada+++ because ... they just can't be bothered any more?

    My suspicion is Cummings will refuse to delay. Despite making poor decisions and generally appearing even more of a buffoon than normal, Boris's approval ratings are sky high. This 'Tally-Ho/We'll fight them on the Beaches' plays really well with Homo Brexitis. And of course if GDP goes down 2-5% and productivity falls even further behind, the Conservatives have got the perfect camouflage.

    So I'm with hard Brexit end of December. Strap on your safety belts...

      I think they'll dream of GDP going down by that little. I'm guessing GDP down in excess of 10%. When JP Morgan are forecasting up to 40%...

        I meant going down 2-5% because of Brexit. This was the price Homo Brexitis were happy all along to pay for Ye Olde Brexit Fairy Tale. The trouble was, like my wife, they absolutely don't understand what a price is. Like, my wife, their price circuitry is disconnected. The electrons race along it, but don't go anywhere.

          I think we've done this gag before, but unless a satisfactory deal is done, they'll have a lot less free fish.

            Trump has promised a great trade deal with the UK. Stop talking the country down.

                  If this country can manage Covid-19 then it will easily do no-deal.

                    Anybody's Guess

                    I guess one of the gotchas is Cummings would get back fishing as part of a no-deal crash-out but the fishermen could not sell any. It all currently goes to the EU and the general view is friction would kill that business. Beyond that, a lot of big businesses would go ape-tulip if they saw hard Brexit closing in on them.
