    Three weeks old but still the best analysis I have seen. On balance, no deal really is the only sensible option.

    Exports from EU ex UK, to the US are on par with their exports to the UK. About 15% of their total exports.

    The UKs largest export market is the EU, by a country mile.

Otherwise, the UK really will go free trade and the EU will see its market share shrink and shrink and shrink.

    You tried sabotage, it failed, you tried subterfuge, that also failed, so how about you try being honest and reasonable? If the EU is even capable of it.
    Bullshit.

    No deal is not a majority position in the parliament, which was - yes - overwhelmingly against the deal that was on the table, but otherwise is completely split what it actually should be instead. There are various positions from no deal, no Brexit, delay, this or that model (Canada/Norway/whatever).


    No deal remains certainly a possibility, but at this point the matter is simply open. Though if I finally get my iPalantir running I'll tell y'all

    More BS. if the UK want to leave it's their choice an they must accept the unavoidable terms. The article is totally wrong about the facts unless you are living in a fantasy world.
    It speaks volumes that the EU believes they are so strong as to enforce such provisions. I don't see anywhere in the deal where Britain agreed to these terms. Was it in the joining agreement? Or is this simply a post-hoc reaction to forestall the inevitable?

    As it is the leave deal was terrible, and so Britain will leave without a deal. Bad negotiations from the EU.

    He was mocking John Bercow, the speaker of the house. I can only assume you’ve not seen any news coverage from parliament or you would instantly recognise this.

    Huh? I have always been against that horrible deal and still think no deal is a better deal. The EU is a bad faith actor and always has been, they are dead set on making sure no common sense trade deal occurs, so the best option is to just say no deal then wait out the current crop of arrogant incompetents until someone else gets appointed who is interested in a fair deal. I figure next year's recession will likely sharpen their minds and get them to give up the irrational punitive nonsense.

    Then the "impossible" will suddenly become possible and everyone will wonder why the **** stain Junckers refused to do such an obviously mutually beneficial deal. I am positive the 30% tax increases will also sharpen minds.

    I think more the dead parrot skit, except with the twist that the vendor is not lying.

    They artificially cap the number of reps in the house. All it would take it a bill passing Congress to fix that.

    The UK has 650 MPs for about 66 million people. The US uses only 435 congressmen for about 326 million people. With modern travel and electronics, maybe the US should increase the number of congressmen to get better representation.
