The Eu has been very quiet of late but i suspect they will have a surprise or two for us to frustrate our plans

The new EU leader has been saying it will hurt the UK more than the EU if there is a no deal.

That may or may not be the case, but what she hasn't fathomed out is that we don't give a f***.

This isn't an issue of who has a few more quid/euros in their pockets, this is an issue of our freedom to act as a sovereign country once more.

You've got to laugh at them, Germany is in meltdown with an impending recession, the Euro is worthless due to quantitative easing, the unelected masters or Europe will be bricking themselves at the thought of us leaving next month.

WHICH means tariff free for all German and French goods into the UK but our companies will pay through the nose. In case you have forgotten TM when negotiating her deal offered the olive branch of tariff free trade for all EU countries but guess what the EU didn't reciprocate

No deal would cost us £7 billion a year

I don't think so. [-X

We have a different government now, having lost loads of wishy washy MPs.

BUT we submitted our tariff proposals to the WTO so we are committed I don't think you can change it overnight there has to be some sort of notice period

It's better than paying £35billion to the EU every year.

The £35 to 39 billion bill is not an annual bill. It is the total of our liabilities under the current spending round.

It was stated that we would have to pay the money every year when it is actually the total amount and not every year.
