I don’t understand why we would even contemplate putting ourselves in that situation with Tusk, Juncker st al.I understand the legal position and firstly a deal should be negotiated that suits all as best as possible. We all know this is the best outcome but is looking unlikely at the moment.
However as others have mentioned, legal contracts are.broken all the time. The question is what would the EU do about it? Both the UK and the EU now find each other stuck in between a rock and a hard place. We can't leave and can't negotiate a good deal to stay attached. The EU haven't been able to offer us a deal to allow us to stay attached in some trade form. However how can it allow us to leave without some muscle flex to demonstrate its use and power to other member states.
What will the EU and their member states do if we decide to go all gung ho and leave legal or not? Take us to court? What court....how? Military action?
I just don't see a scenario where they can do that much about it. Sure countries can boycott trade but they need stuff from us almost as we need stuff from them. We are net exporters I understand but not sure of exact percentages but thought it wasn't far off 50/50. We would just have to learn to fend for ourselves more and be more self sufficient wouldn't we. We have all the stuff we need but understand we.will need daily supplies but will need to work trade deals.
Is the EU going to stop their members states being able to supply stuff to the UK and place a ban order on them? Sure you can try to place additional duties which may make things more expensive short term but it will come a point where it will just be cheaper to find alternatives from non-eu countries or do it ourselves.
I just don't see a scenario where it all goes to sh1t, falls apart and the UK falls into wanton decline. So much media bull at the moment and people afraid of the unknown. It is an unknown so how do they know what is going to happen? You can't accurately predict the unknown until it happens. You can guess but you never know what is going to happen for sure until it happens.
ExactlyThe EU and most non-UK EU businesses don’t want us to leave, and so they are trying everything to delay or stop that. But once we get past the point of no return, the negotiating position will have to change because then we are talking about real trade between real businesses in an already difficult economic environment. Common sense will prevail. All in IMHO of course.
Now back to the tits!
