#2 The Brits can’t make a decision to stay or leave. I guess they will have a front row seat when the EU comes crumbling down.

#3 Brits made their decision.

Some treasonous folks who sold the sovereignty they were lent will have to be dealt with.

#4 So now all the EU states will have to agree, right? Otherwise, it's a 'no-deal exit' on October 31st.

I'm so confused...

#6 Supposedly this 'Brexit delay law' is worded imprecisely in that Boris Johnson is compelled to 'seek' a delay with the EU but there's plenty of room for Johnson to half-ass it / not be entirely serious about this effort, so we'll have to wait & see what happens next. Talk about a soap opera.

#7 Their are already rumors that Boris and Nigel will form up s "New Majority" In which Nigel would get a cabinet position say Chancellor. And they are reputedly talking to Eastern European who are EU members who have no love for Muslims to throw spanners into the works. Get yo popcorn ready.

#9 There's a different possible scenario.

Boris can't work out a deal, refuses to ask for a delay and is toppled by a non confidence vote (or resigns).

The opposition appoints an interim PM (a rebel Tory) who will either seel a delay (EU consent required) or on the last day revokes Article 50 (no EU consent required) in order to save Britain from a no deal Brexit. Back to Square One.

I can see Kenneth Clarke or Amber Rudd doing this. Or maybe Jo Swinson (LibDem) who is a declared Remainer.

The last week of October will be Shakespearean.

#10 Shakespearean.

To be or not to be, that is the question? We do live in interesting times — I look forward to calmer days, when the most important question is whether the world will end in fire or in ice, or just go on as it has been.

#14 If it's a choice is between Russians and Muslims (with European technologist dhimmis) I know that I prefer. But it isn't, Russia barely a shadow of what it was, and USA is still around. It is their own people that EUrope's Mandarins have to fear. As I said, it's Gorbachev's way, or Ceaușescu's.

As Vladimir Bukovsky revelaed. It's already controlled enough by the Russians.

#21 I do not wish it upon the British people but if a no deal Brexit happens we'll be able to test our theories.

There's no majority for a no deal Brexit in Britain. If you think there is, let the people decide between a deal or no deal.

Boris Johnson is an unelected PM without a majority.

#27 EC - I've always respected your opinions and positions, but with Brexit, you seem unhinged in denying the Brits their exit? What about Hungary? Czechs? Poland?

#29 FrankG

I'm definitely not "denying" the Brits their exit. It's entirely up to them. I do feel that people weren't aware of the consequences of a no deal Brexit when they voted on the referendum. That's why I think they should be given a choice between deal/no deal.

I don't agree with the "EUSSR" labeling. As a matter of fact Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union makes it possible to leave the European Union, no ifs and buts. Should Hungary, Poland or the Czech Republic want to leave, they can do so.

If they want, they don't have to accept any terms from the EU. This means they are out, without any benefits, and will be treated like any other country not member of the EU. I don't see any punishing in that.

If they want preferential treatment from the EU, they'll have to negotiate. Switzerland or Norway have special deals with the EU.

We can talk all day long about EU bureaucracy. I still prefer Europe with the EU. We benefit from it. The company I own benefits from it. My kids benefit from it.

I hate tariffs and customs. It seems stupid to me that the Channel will become a hard customs border again. But the UK is the one deciding this.

#30 You don't need to decide on terms for leaving.

Just have to leave.

That was the instruction the British people gave to their Parliament. The WTO trade framework is much better than membership of the EUSSR. Due to their terrible tendencies towards establishment marxism It will be hard for the EUSSR politburo to come up with anything better for either party.

Britain is merely getting the first lifeboat.

#36 The truth, coz, is that Britain cannot remain Britain and submit to the terms of full-blown EU membership.

The elites are happy to cast off British history and merge Britain into a bureaucratic superstate because it's how their bread is buttered.

The "human rights lawyers," trade lawyers, moneyfiddlers, left-wing journalists and bureaucrats have everything to lose and little to gain from preserving Britain's unique identity and historic processes for making and administering the laws of the land.

It is the people who reject the heavy handed and distinctly in-British EU who are making the morally superior, non-aggrandizing choice. Bully for them.
