    Why are you so down,miserable trecherous and pessimistic about UK out of EU? So full of glee and hope that the UK fails out of EU just so you might have your moment of glee and say " I told you so"???

    What I don't understand is how they (Boris and co) think that they can check out of a hotel/club and refuse to settle the bill, and in the same breath try to negotiatesome kind of trade deal?

    You're shouting from the rooftops, "we won't pay what we have agreed to pay in previous necociations" and then "please can we have a deal" to the rest of the world

    Would you do a deal with a bloke who spends the first five mins of a conversation with you telling you all about how he cleverly shafted his last supplier?

    Actually, on the contrary, I am very patriotic. This a great country that deserves its title Great Britain.
    It is a country that has the number 1 financial centre in the world.

    Over half of the UK's top 100 listed companies (the FTSE 100) and over 100 of Europe's 500 largest companies have their headquarters in central London. Over 70 per cent of the FTSE 100 are located within London's metropolitan area, and 75 per cent of Fortune 500 companies have offices in London
    London trades around 1 trillion Euros every day.

    The UK has a growth market in tech industries.
    It has great opportunity,

    I have always been a Eurosceptic, the EU does concern me greatly. It is a huge concentration of power, it has become political, free movement of people is a problem etc.
    I hate the thought of paying the EU £39b.
    I hate the thought of the UK being damaged further by Brexit.

    The UK has real structural problems, people in work poverty, food banks, ever rising inequality, housing crisis, pension and social care crisises looming.

    The problem with Brexit is that the level of misinformation is staggering. Brexit has been driven by soundbites not reasoned arguments based on information.

    For sure the EU has problems, certainly the Eurozone is a failure, the common agriculture problem needs reforming......
    But the UK structural problems are a result of a broken political system which leaving the EU will not solve.
    In fact leaving the EU by any of the current available methods will accelerate the UK problems not solve them.

    So no, I totally do not want the UK to fail
    And I want Great Britain to stay as a union of 4 countries.

    The Great does not mean wonderful; it just means the larger area including the islands.

    Have you never though how delicate testicles are and that they recoil at the merest hint of danger - even cold?

    Number 2 actually.

    NY has re-taken top spot after the flight of investments after the referendum!

    Haven't we already paid most if now? There can't be much left.

    Besides - Their current stance is that we must pay it before they even consider the terms of a trade deal, so agreeing to a trade deal in exchange for a bung (because that is pretty much what it is), seems like progress.

    We (UK) have certainly wasted that amount and more, due to Brexit. It's been a huge waste of money thus far so why not continue the trend.(y)

    No, you are wrong.
    I pull you to bits for arguing with no knowledge.

    You are the one being trecherous, because you insist on being too pig headed to arm yourself with information.
