    That logically follows from the fact that any deal will put some constraints on trade with our biggest trading partner, which is currently open and free.

    The idea that trade with other countries/blocs will make up for this loss is, frankly, complete and utter bullshit wishful thinking, firstly because most countries won't think of the UK as a major trading partner on its own and secondly because we don't make enough stuff to trade with.


    HTH, BIKIW.
    It's worse than wishful thinking. The hard right Brexiteers know exactly what it will do to the economy, but will tell any lie they have to, so they can fulfill their Little England dream.

    It is a spelling mistake, not a grammar mistake. Please try to use the semantically correct word. And sort out your punctuation!

    For the time being, but what you muppets always fail to grasp is that unlike the EU it's not permanent and out of our control - The present government, or any government, can soon be voted out if it doesn't shape up.

    yep, big win for the EU

    taking a step back,

    it's clear to see, that contrary to the rhetoric of the last 11 months, we're all indeed Remainers at heart

    Brexiters, all is forgotten, welcome to the Remain camp

    You know it makes sense

    We'll just forget about the last 11 months how's that for a deal

    Milan and all of the Remainers

    Triggering Article 50 does not mean it cannot be later revoked, according to a leading EU lawyer who helped write it, who also warned of “15 years of economic pain” immediately after the UK leaves the European Union.
    Triggering Article 50 can be reversed, according to the lawyer who wrote it | The Independent

    It is a brilliant move though by the EU, i.e. when David Davis goes in with guns blazing asking for parallel talks instead of disagreeing, simply disappearing for a year to comply with his request.
