#2 WTO-Only exit is the best Brexit for Britain.

Tough for the EUSSR vassal states though

#3 I am getting the impression that state-level actors (France and Germany) have their thumbs on the scale, and maybe not so much the EUcrats. France/Macron says too late suckers. Germany/hag whatshername says come up with a plan. Not coordinated, but if it is the EU, why state involvement at all? Not so deeply repressed resentment of Britain? Wasn't the idea of the EU the dissolution of the states and the rise of a single super-state? Vote until the voters 'get it right' then no more votes "thanks, this is my stop, I'll get off here"? Rotten smells predominate.

#6 The US is a great nation that was once a colony. UK is a colony that was once a great nation.

Make UK great again!

IMO, the FR/BEL/GER Troika that was running the EU ran into the problem that all would-be empire builders run into: $ Money $. The Swiss Bankers would laugh in their faces, the German Financiers have spent all they care to, so who's next to pillage? Name the remaining country with prosperous finances in Europe ... Tick-Tock-Tick ... Great Britain. England was soon to be plucked, roasted and devoured by their EU Masters.

#10 I just read that German banks are looking at negative interest rates for loans and mortgages — so they will pay the buyer rather than the other way round. And of course, if they’re losing money on every loan, they aren’t going to be handing out interest for savings accounts and bonds, nor dividends either. The discussion was around why that inverted thingy doesn’t matter — American returns are better and safer than anywhere else in the world, so international investors will continue sending us their money.
