Pyro as Bill.
So just ignore facts and reality, and talk about the "greatness" of a once upon a time, GB?
(the past is the past, we re talking the next 25-50 years here instead)
80% of GDP for the UK is Financial & services, that they mainly get from Europe.
The not getting a free trade agrement with EU (ei. just hard crashing into WTO rules) will mean you risk loseing large quantities of that.
Remember the brexiteers used to call all this stuff "Project Fear"?
(ofc EU wouldn't risk UK leaveing without a deal, and some form of free trade agreement, EU needs UK, more than it needs them, they will bend over if push comes to shove)
EU has been saying the same thing over and over, and the UK just ignores it.
UK is basically gambleing with its economy, hopeing the EU saves them from themselves (and it doesnt look like this will happend).
Its just driveing the car towards the cliff edge, and intending to go over it.
(UK trade secretary leaked letter, in a panic of how things will turn out)
(border infrastructure wont be ready, until april/july of 2021. Smuggleing + legal trouoble with WTO to come from this. This comes from your own Trade secretary)
*also this is "disaster for firms tradeing within the EU" (by her words). Apparently this "half year" long gap without anything in place will hurt businesses.
Mark Francois writes a mocking letter to EU, to score points amoung brexit voters.
Michel Barnier replies in a very diplomatic way.
(incompetence and curruption)
UK decides it wont use EU satilites for military and such, to get its own.
Only issue? it bought the wrong type of satalites.
We re Great Britain, we dont need the EU.
