As Planned on March 29th
No Deal on March 29th
Delayed to 2021
I fear we're being set up for a MV4 and MP's are going to vote for May's shitty deal rather than risk a long extension or no-Brexit. The spineless cowards at the ERG will flip and be supported by some renegade Labour MP's. Still seems a long shot but I wouldn't rule it out completely.
To be honest, her deal is probably better than a customs-union deal as I believe the UK will be able to negotiate a substantial trade deal (without a full customs union) with the EU after the WA is signed. However, all the above options are are demonstrably worse than staying in the EU !
Offering the UK a torturous route to exit and probably as similar but longer route to get 'sensible' free trade deal will only stoke resentment of the EU presidium from within the EU and outside the EU. Being able to leave a club (technically and practically) makes the club stronger as it forces decisions and direction that makes the club a better place so members are less inclined to leave.
MV2 (meaningful vote again) - Changed the font
NSMV (Not so meaningful vote) - Printed on two pages instead of one
NRMV (Not really meaningful vote) - ???
I would hope the speaker doesn't allow such tactics by the executive.
I too suspect this is what will happen, specially with the EU focused on sorting out issues within and with the US.I suspect the UK will be held in limbo of paying full fees and no seat at the table for many years while the 'details' of a free trade agreement coupled with appropriate fees for regulatory alignment and access are thrashed out.
And then there's you who thinks every political problem has a technical solution and hence you see the EU as a technical construct. That view is not only dangerous, but factually incorrect. It's the political construct of the EU that brought about peace in Ireland and not the free flow of goods. Hence one cannot just replace a political solution with a technical one.
UK politics are in shambles, parliament has chosen to extend negotiation, the EU may return the favour, but Brexiteers are now vowing to use passive aggressive tactics to disrupt EU decision making. Yet you come on here telling us the EU is inflexible.
