We’ll do a trade deal at some point, if it’s not negotiated immediately then so what? 

May lay down like a dog & was happy to let the EU walk all over this country. Once we are out the imperative of blocking Brexit dissolves, then we’ll have an election and the voters will decide what happens next. 

It’s ace. 

It. Has. Been. Negotiated. For YEARS.

We weren't just given the terms by the EU and that was taken to Parliament to be voted on.

No Deal means No Deal in the future either.

As has been discussed at length, what people thought was meant by "leave" varies quite a bit, and the proposal was not to leave on the terms and in the way now thought likely.

Even three or four weeks ago, the prospect of no-deal was stated by the current PM as being "a million to one".  Now it is evidently what he is going for.

This course of events can in no sensible way be described as a decision delegated to the people.

People will perform whatever mental gymnastics they choose to justify the outcome/position they prefer. 

What matters (to me) is we now, for the first time, have an executive determined to deliver on 2016. They may not succeed but I’m pretty chuffed someone is having a go.

Everything dies on the altar of Brexit. All sacrifice is worth it. Anything offered to appease Brexit is good.

Reason is dead.

To what ends?

You're chuffed because you're winning. That's it. You couldn't give a shit about the country.

You don’t need the fullstops, Stefan. I can read. The EU Withdrawal Treaty was negotiated by people who didn’t actually want to leave, hence the outcome being so bad it was defeated 3 times by historic margins. That’s not a deal, it’s a failed attempt to negotiate something acceptable to both sides. 

You may believe no deal now means no deal ever. I disagree.

We disagree about a course of action. Few people on this board care about this country more than I do.

Yes, I think we'd spotted that.

David Davis? Dominic Raab?

People who didn't want to leave?

Interesting how you think something has to be acceptable to both sides, yet support No Deal which there is objectively no mandate for, either in the populace, or Parliament.

You’re aware that the actual negotiation was conducted out of the Cabinet Office, not the Department for Exiting the European Union, right? Maybe you’re not.

So what you're effectively saying is that the Pro-Leave Brexit secretaries weren't involved in anything to do with Brexit? 

Verging on conspiracy theories here.

Separate point @Awol

Do you think there is a valid and democratic mandate for leaving the EU without a deal?

Has it not sunk in, Patriot?

You've been played like a balalaika.

I’ve wanted to leave the EU since the Lisbon Treaty and debated it endlessly on here long before Brexit was a thing. It’s a shame people like you can’t accept others have reasoned themselves into holding the opposite view to you without being duped. 

Still, at least you only called me stupid, not a fascist. That’s progress.

So it's stubborn ideology over realism?

Please see my previous reply to you. I haven’t been exploited by anyone, but thanks for your concern. 

Anyway, there’s a bit too much friendly discussion round here for my taste. Back to the books for a while..

No interest in talking to you until you can manage a little civility, Stefan. Cheerio.

You've been mugged off.

Clever people get mugged off too, but they get wise to it.

That ball's in your court now.
