Thquote]The deal stands. The EU made its demands. Open borders, and the UK has to follow EU law.
The whole point behind leaving the EU is so they don't have to follow EU standards and rules... they can decide them for themselves.
They got along fine before the EU and they will get along fine without... it will take some adjustments.... and for all the shit you can direct at them there is plenty they can direct right back at you...
Ireland is an EU member. Ireland wants an open border with Northern ireland. The EU must protect its members interests. Spain wants hasrh border protection at Gibraltar, which basicly locks Gibraltar.
Screw Ireland... close the border... not a problem at all... who ever heard of open borders between independent states... Finland doesn't have an open border with Russia and the EU does not have an open border with the Ukraine.
Grow up and regulate your borders.
I am sure the Brits will give up Gibraltar like they gave up the Falklands...
They see our deal as unacceptable, since it would degrade them to a protectorate. On the other side they are terrified by the effects of no deal.
They voted to leave... the deal on offer seems to be all the responsibilities of staying and none of the perks, so no deal is what it will be eventually... you know it and I know it... they haven't worked it out yet but they will get there...
Maybe they will vote for Boris and he will invade France...
They can accept it or not. There is no force. Its them who do all this chaos. We just stand by and watch.
They have been led to believe the alternative is chaos, but I don't think anyone has actually thought through all of the alternatives... that stupid bitch May seems to have hoped a bad deal or nothing would force the UK to demand another vote and this time vote to stay, but she failed... it was a flawed idea from the start to let a politician who was against brexit to lead the government that had to implement it... it is like having the roman catholic church in charge of setting up abortion clinics.... gee, I wonder why they didn't work well?[/quote]
Boris Johnson is a pathetic weakling and coward and ran away when stuff got hot.
As i said, they can accept it or not and leave without deal. Its up to them.
They dont have to give up Gibraltar, just endure border checks there. You are inconsequent.
You say on one side the UK can close its border and screw Ireland but somehow see it as attack against Gibraltar, when Spain closes its own border as well.
They have an alternative. Our deal or no deal.
As for Ireland, the people in Northern Ireland want no closed border. Open border is a peace treaty part with the former IRA.
Its internal british affair. They have time till october. They either accept our deal or get kicked out then without deal.
Then when its done we can start negotiations how trade, transport ect will be organized. Until that is debated no british aircraft can legally fly or land in Europe. Ect.
No banking license for british banks, high tariffs ect.
