Published

on



It isn’t fully clear to much of the country what has happened with Brexit so far. It’s been nearly a year and a half since article 50 was triggered and negotiations began, but what progress has been made? We run through what has happened and what it means for the future of the UK

    It would be nice to do an update now. Haulage and food industries are having trouble. Small businesses are also struggling. I would also like to know why we took so long to get the paperwork together too while the EU was ready.

    I'm writing a paper on Brexit and got a bit confused. The time-line seen on 5:33 shows both Brexit divorce bill and Brexit bill. Are they the same thing or are different? If they are different, then what's the difference?

    P.S. I know there is a slim chance of this being answered, but I had to try.

    So Cameron could have tossed a coin but instead he dragged the whole of Britain into the internal Tory row and then buggered off like the coward he is when he lost the argument instead of allowing Parliament a say.  If you look at what was being said in Parliament during the run up to the referendum you can see the anti-EU Tories beginning to move the pieces into place to swing the result their way.  They resisted including the ex-pat vote, even though this was another manifesto promise and stated their intention to trigger Article 50, which would drag the UK out of the EU without single market membership, which, as another manifesto promise, should be informing the decision of what kind of Brexit they should be aiming for.  If, as they insisted repeatedly in Parliament, the manifesto promise created the mandate for the Government to ride roughshod over Parliament then all the promises in that manifesto should be equally valid in directing their actions.

    It's like asking if we want to race on slicks 6 months ahead of the race telling us the weather predictions (hot and sunny or rainstorm), then a fairly split vote for slicks but then on the day it's drizzling and just saying "too bad, we made the decision already, it's what the team wanted."

    Don't worry remoaners I'm sure the corrupt undemocratic overpaid powerful elite will find a way to cheat people of intelligence out of Brexit.
    You will then all be able to continue with mass unrestricted importation of 3rd world fighting age men rapists from ever so suitable for the modern world backgrounds.
    I'm also sure the unelected above the law ruling council of the EU will continue on the Brussels gravy train using my taxes.
    As I keep saying if Britain gets any where near Brexit I will be amazed.

    Actually: Quite a few people in Great Britain want a second Referendum, since so much has changed in the two years and a lot of people have changed their opinion about leaving the EU. In addition to that, a lot of people in Great Britain were misinformed by politicians and campaigns before the referendum, which they have realised in the last 2 years.

    Hmm, you didn't mention mention the U.K.'s relations with other countries; but I understand focusing on the British government's negotiations with the EU primarily. Canada has agreed to a post-Brexit free trade agreement following some American tariffs on iron that made them and the EU quite mad. Australia and New Zealand have also agreed to a post-Brexit free trade agreement due to China interacting with them less, pushing towards the Middle East and Africa and damaging their food exports. India stated they would allow free trade in exchange for freedom of movement.

    Just stop Brexit party, say "it was a terrible idea coming in a moment when we were not ready, apology" and voilà. Everyone see why its bad, except brexiter beacause it will be bad to admit their wrong, and the all stuff all europeans does say in EVERY EU nation " europe suck". We all say that, in France Germany Spain Italy Czeh Letonia etc…. But in the end, no it dont, its just that all EU politicians (or quite so) are corrupt selfish peoples, that's the problem. Human nature. Getting rid of EU will just cause new biggest issues for all uk, gibraltar, ireland borders, fees, relocation of the financials hq from London… JUST STOP IT, its still time .

    January 26, 2024 at 8:48 am

    For me (a pro EU german) this hole Brexit thing is a bit complicated (also there are more pressing matters then an annoying island)
    My had says to get the best, esiest and harmless route to brexit where both sides get only limited consequences – Britain stays in the trade zone
    My heart says to make an example out of Britain and make them feel the pain of betraying the EU in its first major crisis and trying to jump the boot instead of contributng to finding a solution for the problems. For me it feels like Britain was only in for the money and benefits without taking any responsibility or actually contributing. They always wanted the "special island snowflake" treatment.
    But that is only personal opinion.
    Also its time for scotland to get independent and rejoin the EU 🙂

    What's happened is that the establishment have deliberately thrown in everything to block & frustrate what the ppl voted for. May has & continues to do a hatchet job on any kind of genuine brexit & is making a deliberate dog's breakfast of it. The British bulldog has been muzzled by May & the remoaners & tied up in EU red tape. Just take the lead off & watch the British bulldog run free to it's chosen destiny! UK can't get away from the arrogant EU fast enough! UK will thrive outside of EU!

    Ok, let's say May get the softest possible Brexit deal ever.
    In 2019 are the election and then UKIP can take over if there are really enough people to go for a hard Brexit and just quit the previously made arrangments with the EU.

    However, May is giving what the majority wanted: A Brexit.
    How the Brexit look like, was not for a vote only "if" there would be a Brexit.

    January 26, 2024 at 8:48 am

    What's happened is establishment has done it's best to keep UK within EU. And please, there is no hard or soft Brexit. Only leaving EU which was what referendum was about. And nothing is agreed till everything is agreed. So no money definitely handed over. 80% is agreed so far.

  43. @volkermarx5729

    January 26, 2024 at 8:48 am

    Actually the EU did very little powerplay, it COULD have done damage, but it did not do so…. Most conflicts are between the Brits themself… The comments below show, there is some wanting for a Farage or Rees-Moog. And I agree, Brits are getting angry – well at least the hard Brexeteers… The whole point was: You want a hard Brexit, fine: Go to the EU and tell them… You want a soft Brexit, ok, a bit harder…. but go to the EU and tell them… Get a Farage or a Rees-Moog and it gets dirty… My fear is that it's then not a UK-EU think, but a UK against the reamining 27 thing…. If you copy Trump it will include name-calling, attack on nation leaders, twisting facts, creating a propaganda bubble, questioning the security cooperation (needed by all sides), f***ng buisseness as modus operandi and so on… Where is the upside, when you can ANYTIME just ask for a hard Brexit (then you are just out). That just has not to come with a Boris Johnson, a polite (and very British) letter is enough for a hard Brexit and was at every time. It would be suicide for the oeconomic, but if that's what you want, there is just noone blocking it with force. Ofc. we try to talk reason to you, but it IS your decision. Maybe the US will even help you a bit with the oeconomic consequences, I would not count on that, but hope dies last… Point is: I see the anger INSIDE the UK now and there is no way to say, if May will survive this. But if she does not, you do not need to destroy your relationship with continental europe, because you are so frustrated by the (self created) lack of progress inside the UK. The EU rules for leaving are pretty clear from the beginning, you just need to find out, what you want – well and what can pass the house.. There won't be ANY upside to dragging a hard Brexit out – if you go full out, there is not really that much to negotiate,. If you want to go softer there won't be ANY upside with choosing one of them either… You willl just end with crazy demands the EU can't accept and it will be just a hard Brexit after a complete unnecessery dispute… If you want to go soft, May might be the right person… Really, it's just something you really have to choose at some point in time… I know, you project the lack of progress to a degree on the EU, but lets be honest, it does not go forward, because the UK can't find a position that has a majority for the final vote… If I had to play nostradamus I would guess, if May falls, there will be a lot of agression directed toward the continental europe… It won't change the deal at the end, but it will destroy all the relationships between our countries. Well, since I am German I won't call it friendship, because, yes, the UK hates us (well not everyone ofc), but I will call it solidarity and partnership from the UK side and something like friendship from the German side… There is really absolute no need to damage this… Same with the other remaining 27… Make your chooice and go ahead I would say, we all know, The UK-EU membership was not ment to last forever. It's disappointing that you leave, but I have no doubt, Brexit will happen… I allrdy said, I think it's not wise, no point repeating it… Just leave in a British way… and not in a Trumpish…. After that over time I am pretty sure we will figure out where we can work closer and where you do not want that to happen. Unless you go full berserk now, because there IS some anger BOILING in the UK… Ok, this comment was way to long, short : No upside in ANY szenario to raise tensions, won't change ANYTHING for the better… And repairing relationships between countries is a nightmare… look Germany-Turkey… First insults, now we really do not talk that much together… you would expect better relationships with the stopped insults, but somehow that's not how it works… it's just silent now…

  44. @volkermarx5729

    January 26, 2024 at 8:48 am

    I am from the european continent. It's your chooice, how you leave. But PLEASE: Remeber to keep this between EU and UK. I understand that Brexeteers are frustrated about the time that was well… lets say as it is: wasted…. May is still a good chooice, because she understands it can't become a Trump-Style fact free, dishonesty contest… I fear a bit, thtat if may gets replaced because lack of progress we will see a dirty negotiation. That would cost you all sympathy from 450 million europeans. You are absolut free to go to Brussels and say, we go out this way or that way or – well, i have no idea, if staying is at all possible, because art 50 was triggered. Important is, it stays between EU and UK until final vote by remaining 27 leaders (and another vote on your side of the table)… Farage told me, I should not comment anything, because I am not qualified, because, I need to have my femal friends first raped and beheaded by muslim gangs before I comment on Brits leaving at all…. If you take someone like him instead of may, you will end up isolated and disrispected…. I mean, noone stops you to make your chooice and that chooice will then be evaluated by the EU and some or all options for future cooperations between EU and UK will be limited or off the table, dependent on the chooice… I think we might over time getting closer and adjust our deal for the better if you do not destroy the UK's image by a madman… And yes, May is not very colorful, but in a way that's not bad. You just need to make YOUR chooice finaly, it really is NOT the EU stopping you. And if – whatever decision you make – is through it will pay off, that you had a May and not a Farage telling Brussels, what you want. You are a bit too harsh allrdy. Think what would had happend in the UK if the EU had called their Brexit team "war cabinet" and not the other way around.
    Having said all that, my oppinion on Brexit is something I think I have a right to have: It will hurt us all. The UK for sure much more than the EU, but you have your Slogans, some of them are very hard to understand from a non British point of view. But ofc you can argue, that the oeconomic damage will be worth whatever your slogans promiss you. And it would be inappropiate to lecture you about that. The oeconomic side is clear though… There is no upside on that area.
    Point of this post: Keep it between EU and UK and don't make it a Trumpish negotiation against any of the remaining independent countries, their leaders and most important their citizenz. I still DO buy British… And why should I not… The Art 50 for leaving is exactly there for… well leaving… and the UK's history indicates, it will leave with dignity and respect. Just don't let the frustration change that please… Or everything will go south…

    The ONLY Brexit which respects the democratic vote involves being outside the Customs Union. outside the Single Market and outside the jurisdiction of the ECJ. If Canada and Japan can have good trade deals without paying, why should we pay for one? Best option is to go WTO and break completely with the EU in March next year.
