    Every Conservative MP has been saying: 'We need no deal on the table as a negotiating strategy'

    What have the EU said?
    'We are sorry the proposal is not close enough for further discussions. The summit talks will be for no deal or an extension'.

    Juncker said 'if a no deal is what you want, we wont stop you, but it wont be pretty for the UK'.

    The EU think that if they don't give us a deal we'll have to ask for an extension and which they will grant.

    They think that we'll then have an election and, with the current stance of Labour and the Lib Dems, there is a good chance we won't leave at all.

    The 'surrender act' has destroyed our negotiating position and i think we'll end up leaving without a deal.

    It's actually called the 'Benn Act'
    (only idiots who don't understand the reasoning call it the 'surrender act')

    But if we leave without a deal with bojo breaking the law, then we will truly take our place in the third world!

    They negotiated an agreement with the government of the UK. So they did give us a deal. Parliament, especially the Brextremists like Ree-Smogg and his followers, refused the deal.

    Theresa and Buffoon haven't really been negotiating with Brussels. They've been negotiating with the Conservative Party.

    Which can't agree to anything because Brexers can't agree what they want.

    In all honesty, who gives a toss? I am more concerned about the country I live in than get pleasure in seeing any other country suffer.

    I dont understand this argument by those wanting Brexit.
    if you think the UK has negotiating strength with no deal no the table, what better deal do you think might be on offer?

    What the UK need is frictionless trade with the EU, or as near as possible with an open border in Ireland.

    But to get those benefits the UK must be in the single market and CU......it isnt possible to be out yet keep the benefits, because as soon as the UK starts regulatory changes it cant trade friction free.
    brexiteers are arguing for a better deal, but that better deal is free movement and alignment which they dont want -contradictory

    Its bonkers stance. The day after a No Deal they will be back negotiating from a weaker position.

    Yep...

    The Japanese won't sign a 'continuity' deal with the UK because they want one that is more favourable than the one they have signed with the EU...

    The best we can hope for from smaller countries is the 'status quo', but the bigger ones (and trading blocs) are lining up like vultures ready to pick over the bones of a post brexit UK....

    Any quitter who believes otherwise is indeed truly bonkers!
