Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Quote:
So is the UK special or not? Its sovereignty should be maintained or not.

Have you or have you not now just agreed that the proverbial cheese is now very firmly with the EU?
I've already stated enough times that NO the UK is not special, and YES it's critical that sovereignty be reestablished. Read the speech, I share this view almost to the letter.

And you're incorrect in saying that the EU has the upper hand in talks now. This government has already accepted there will be trade friction, something that was a no go under the previous government, which was why the EU were able to get as many concessions. You, like many others, seem to see this negotiation as a zero-sum contest. It's not! If no deal is agreed then the damage will be mutually assured!
