No deal, no problem

The British public is increasingly able to see past the pro-EU fearmongering:
Britain has nothing to fear from leaving the EU without a deal, leading Brexiteers declared last night.

After a weekend when Theresa May’s Chequers plan came under fire from Remainers and Leavers alike, a poll yesterday showed growing public support for walking away from the negotiations.

It found twice as many voters now back leaving the EU without a deal.

Remainers have long argued that the consequences of no deal would be catastrophic for the economy. But leading Brexiteers admitted yesterday that although it could be bumpy in the short term, Britain could thrive in the long run. Former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith said: ‘If we don’t have a trade deal with the EU then we simply trade on World Trade Organisation terms, which is how most countries trade with each other.

The ComRes poll for the Daily Mirror found 39 per cent think the Prime Minister ‘should accept a no-deal and the UK simply leave the EU’. Just 20 per cent want her to press on with the White Paper, which critics say is a ‘half in, half out’ Brexit.
Furthermore, not bothering with a deal will take the wind out of the sales of the traitorous Remain activists who claim that a second referendum to approve the deal would be necessary. It isn't anyhow, but they wouldn't even have a false justification to which they could appeal.

And given that Treasonous May just lost her TENTH minister, this one the Junior Defence Minister, how is it possible that she still hasn't resigned herself? The Tories would do well to start the no-confidence process, because it is clear that no one except Herr Merkel has any confidence in her.

Interesting times indeed.

Think perhaps the GE's words put a little steel into just enough wobbly spines to tip ol' May over?

That would be simply...delicious.

Tommy Robinson for P.M. - might an Englishman lead England. May is to Britain what Ceausescu was to Romania. Someone who hung on for too long.

"Herr Merkel". I like it.

Historically, any other Prime Minister would have been gone by now.

Blogger Mark Stoval July 17, 2018 5:49 AM  

It has been obvious since the beginning that just leaving the EU is what the people voted for. The "negotiations" was always just a way to drag it out and stay in the EU.

It is time to do what the people voted for and still want done. Leave the evil EU.

It is also time for England to leave NATO. And the USA needs to leave to boot. The USSR no longer exists. Declare victory and go the hell home.

But Mark, NATO forces are in Afghanistan keeping us safe from bearded goatherders and a lack of quality opiates.

It will be good to see the British do something sensible for themselves and just walk away.

Sad that it is happening in spite of their “representative government” but at least it’s happening.

Well, Juncker and Merkel are still in office too. If you are a Gold Star Globalist and nation destroyer, it is astonishing how long you can stay in leading positions.

"If you are a Gold Star Globalist and nation destroyer, it is astonishing how long you can stay in leading positions."

Hmmmm. I wonder if having your country's media and buckets of money, from who knows where, behind you at all times helps these people stay in power?

VD asks, “how is it possible that she still hasn't resigned herself?”

Im sure it has more than a little to do with the fact that grrrlpower instills in females everywhere that they should never, never, never, never give up. It’s for the glorious cause. It’s misapplication of the Churchil Method from the former bond to one’s Countrymen to one’s gender. Plus, she’s unattractive. So we must all suffer.

Blogger Rick July 17, 2018 6:50 AM  

It is a rare woman who can stand next to FLOTUS while herself looking like May or Merkel and not feel bitter with all those cameras going off. It’s WWII and high school all over again.
May hanging on after Trump’s recent visit only steels May’s resolve.
Unrelated? Maybe..

Blogger CarpeOro July 17, 2018 7:25 AM  

For being strong women, Merkel and May, they really seem to have a lot in common with battered wives. They keep clinging to policies that are destructive to their family/nation and say that the alternative of leaving (or stopping the policies) is worse. Fear rules them or at least their stance.

Blogger linesy July 17, 2018 7:29 AM  

Oh, you'd be surprised how long they will go on, Bliar carried on for years after his sell by date. However, like Mrs Thatcher, when the wind changes direction, the forces to remove will act quickly.. . Please

May will never leave. She will need to be physically removed from n.10.

Can't do that, the Deep State needs a permanent enemy, and Venezuela is not going to cut it....

They don't need no stinkin North Sea oil and gas they have the globalist's gas lighting to meet all their energy needs.

The UK will be interesting to watch. Their agencies took the point on spying on Trump, and there will be proof presented in the future (or more proof). IMO there will be a major reset for the UK as well as the USA.

May received information from the Trump intelligence people about a threat to her life, which she did not know about, a few months ago, and it probably saved her life. She is so owned by the Deep State in Europe, nothing matters to her.

Blogger James Dixon July 17, 2018 9:25 AM  

> No deal, no problem

Agreed completely. There are no real negatives to a clean break. Merkel and company will throw their hissy fits but they won't be in power forever, calmer heads will eventually prevail, and new trade deals will be reached. And, as the article says, they're all already signed on to the WTO agreements, so they're covered in the meantime.

The best thing that could happen would be for the no agreement to be reached and a hard Brexit forced.

There simply aren't enough words in the English language to describe how terrible May and Davis are at negotiationg with the EU.

They should have walked into the first meeting and said, "You want our money? Well in order to have at least some of it, if not all of it, here is what the EU must agree to."

And then you ask for the moon and the stars, and they work your way to a good agreement.

There's a key comceopt in negoatiation that has the acronym BATNA -- Best Alternative to a Negotatied Agreement." If at all possible, you ALWAYS have a BATNA. YOur BATNA is always in your back pocket, and the best BATNA is one that hurts the other side more - ideally MUCH more -- that it hurts you.

And the EU needs Britain's money more than it needs the EU.

Britain had most of the power in this negotiation, but May and Davis squandered it. This negotiation, however it turns out, will be studied for years to come.

Blogger Lance E July 17, 2018 10:43 AM  

At this point we can conclude that May will never, ever step down voluntarily. It wouldn't surprise me if they put together a successful no-confidence vote and she still tries to cling to leadership under some obscure or novel legalism.

Trump literally gave her a mulligan with the option of a free-trade agreement with the USA, and all she did was whine to the TV cameras about his advice being too hard to follow. She's either too incompetent to play a winning hand or deliberately trying to throw the match.

Sp either (a) the cynical explanation, she was put there to sabotage Brexit and is doing a great job of that, so why quit? or (b) like most women, she doesn't know her own limits and doesn't understand the difference between "setback" and "failure", or "controversy" and "disgrace". In both cases, the outcome will be disastrous unless and until she is forcibly removed.

Blogger David Power July 17, 2018 10:48 AM  

The optimum outcome would be for them to steal the Brexit result. Farage to come back as UKIP leader. And in the next general election the British people rise up and stun the world. A la Trump's Deplorables.

Last time Nigel lead his party into a General Election, one in every five voters for him. The anger next time around will bust him through the glass ceiling of this politically corrupt duopoly.

Blogger DonReynolds July 17, 2018 11:00 AM  

Unlike so many other countries in the EU, the British are in a better position to quit because they never gave up their national currency for the Euro.

I made a quick trip to the UK after a few months in Germany and made the mistake of offering Euros in payment to the cab driver. It wasn't just a polite refusal. I actually thought an airport cabbie would be set up to deal in Euros, since so many of those flying into the country would have such currency. But he acted like it carried a virus. Ha Ha. Maybe it did.

Another advantage of the British is the fact that they are not a party to the Schengen agreement, which was the device that allowed free movement among many of the remaining European countries. For me this was rather convenient. I could use up my 90 days as a tourist in a Schengen country (like Germany) and then spend up to six months in the UK as a tourist, before restarting the clock for another 90 days in Germany. The flight from Hamburg to Edinburg or London (or back) on Ryan Air was only about 25 to 30 Euros.

@23 "All women operate from a basis of fear. It's only the confidence of having a dependable, strong man to rely on that lets them get beyond it."

Or, failing that, strong faith in dependable Christ.

Women as a rule don't give up power. The political is personal for them. They don't care so much when things are going south. Power feels good. It's the feeling that matters, not the right use of it. This is the basic reason why Women Ruin Everything.

Blogger Zeroh Tollrants July 17, 2018 11:16 PM  

Could you please describe some of the traits either woman has exhibited in the past that led you to label them as "strong women?"

Blogger Troushers July 18, 2018 3:27 AM  

I used to place a lot of blame on David Davis, but it has become clear recently that May at No. 10 and a bunch of civil servants had set up a parallel department which was interfering with the negotiations of Davis and his team.
