You would think that the UK didn't exist prior to joining the EU...
UK MP's fighting to remain in the EU are traitors to the will of the people. Democracy is being destroyed and the validity of Parliament is being trashed. The people voted to leave and that was supposed to happen on the 29th March, deal or no deal if that doesn't happen The group of people calling themselves the representatives of the people are liars and engaged in coup against the British people. The people don't care about a deal, the priority is to get out as agreed years ago. Nobody believes that it takes 3 years to leave. We simply leave as agreed 29th March, if we don't...
It looks like UK steps down behind Turkey, but there are standing South Korea and Canada in front. The first exit now, UK will be the last then. UK I'm sorry for you.
TIL cgpgrey is Irish
Here is an idea: Scrap the "red lines" along with Mrs May and agree to a Norwegian style relationship. That would prevent economic disaster and the territorial integrity of the UK.
Video: BREXIT and the future of Britain. With Vernon B
whether you voted leave or remain and whatever the outcome of Brexit may be I know one thing that is going to happen ... there is going to be a political blood bath massacre of politicians in the next general elections
Stay revoked article 50 now and Brexiters stop your constant moaning
Brexiteers aren't the ones who are moaning, it is the remainers who are always moaning and marching because they cannot accept that the vote went against them. Well too bad!
In other word the EU is like the mafia pay up or else.
3:10 you meant to say Europol and not Interpol! Now I have doubts about the rest of the info on this video
Oh yes. Let's completely bypass the sectarian peace treaty of Northern Ireland and the fact that the DUP are influencing deal refusals so as to force a "no deal" in order to unhook Northern Ireland from the peace treaty protected by the EU and claim 100% DUP-Westminster rule for NI. Usurping power by rejecting all EU deals that protect the Peace Treaty and Power-Sharing Governance of NI. While simultaneously rejecting the democratic vote by NI population (Unionist + Republican) to remain in the EU.The DUP are PUD - persistent underminers of democracy.
Switzerland is afraid of marriage
Never ceases to amaze me how gullible jo public is
but ukip said it would be easy
The problem with democracy is when 51% of the people vote that everyone should shoot his/hers own leg off...
Fine video - but why have you ignored the last step in the graphic? Canada.
The EU has no more right to keep the UK in the EU than someone has the right to keep someone else at a party which they want to leave.
If the UK pulls out of the EU... who's next? Greece? Italy? Spain? Hungary?
Most likely no one. It requires a level of stupidity and arrogance which not many countries poses in combination.
Can someone just conquer everything already?
You didn't explain the Canada/South-Korean option that was also on this infographic.
Most of these 'deal-breakers' could have been negotiated but the EU never entered into real negotiations.
They can't.It is an intricate set of relations, if you suddenly allow one side to cherrypick, all the others want, hell breaks loose, the box of pandora opens.What you UK people have to understand:you. are. not. special.You are one of many, and have to play by the same rules as everyone else, you should not expect others to make an exception for you.
You are forgetting the UK MP's who regularly lie to the UK people. They say Brexit means Brexit while doing their best to stay in the EU covertly. Welcome to the end of democracy in the UK. Which may have untold damages to the rest of the world.
The vast majoirty of the 17.4milliom who voted leave wanted a "no-deal" brexit or WTO brexit, we are one of the largest exporters with the EU and second biggest financial contributer. The EU will come to is us to trade when we leave on WTO terms. The reason BREXIT is such a cluster fuck is the polictal class doesn't want to carry out the instruction of the people they govern.
They say that history is in the headlines.So why BREXIT?Because:One war in the ME is enough.It seems as if there are forces behind Trump, which are setting the stage for another war here...Here are the signs for war:1) North Korea: make peace, in order to free forces and avoid 'bandwagon effect' (Kim allying with Moscow, via the common border)2) UN: disgrace the UN with a smear campaign (neutral observer, as opposed to...ahem..."embedded journalists")3) set up Riyad as a US lapdog, to carry out a 'false flag' in the Gulf (read, I mean really READ the headlines)4) EU: chisel away at the unity of the EU, already with good results in Poland and GB (Brexit as "divide and rule" tool, for a two front war scenario for Russia, and lighting rods for Russian nukes)5) Palestinian /Israeli conflict: get Saudi Arabia to "sign away" (sacrifice) the Palestinian cause (free the back of this "smiling prince" aka Washington's lapdog, to attack Iran)Remember what Putin said."You shall not pass".My advice, unless we wish to argue about "who started it" on clay tablets in the near future, is to heed that warning...
This is the very first time that anyone has taken the trouble to offer the most lucid explanation of the very core of the problem and a more lucid explanation could not exist. Congratulations for the total brilliance of your idea and the totally excellent presentation. This video must be made obligatory viewing for every single person and even in schools, even in kindergarten , it is so totally perfect in fulfilling the objective. Congratulations again and again.
Brexit: Like leaving your wife, only she won't let you out of the house... "Misery" style. Then, when you do manage to get half way out and demand your clothes, you are told "No!", if you want to leave, leave with nothing. ...But hold on a minute, when we 1st met we didn't get on well, but then I ended up saving your life.. twice! From the new guy you're sleeping with (I'm looking at you Axis powers!). I say Nuke the EU from a high orbit!
EU is such a shit
Why can't they have another relationship that isn't on a model they have with another country
They can. Show them one way.
EU : do you want to leave ?People of the UK : YESPoliticians of the UK : NoEU : Do you want to leave with a Deal ?People of UK : Leave with no dealPoliticians of UK : Leave with deal
So, UK is like that girlfriend who wants the keys to your house but won't sleep in it, clean up the mess or pay the bills but wants to decide where the couch goes or what curtains you should have right?
Well, in fact the key issue for the UK is maintaining somehow a free goods and people movement between Rep. of Ireland and Northern Irealand, which can be easily done upon the article 24th of the WTO Treaty. The EU doeasn't want to make it so easy, so they're menacing the uK by establishing the border and customs posts on the Irish border. In fact UK is a huge financial contributor to the EU and they want to keep it that way as long as possible.
South Korea, Japan, USA and Canada are doing well. I bought this Korean phone in Britain no problem. Let's be like them. NOW FFS.
*after long and hard negotiations and based on WTO rules first.
Simple. We do not want to be europes shit dumping fuck hole.That's what they think of us brits.Island nation alone. Mixed bag of fuckwits. Forest people in the sod.All the wrong uns and hooligans.Drug dependant wasters and socially bankrupt layabouts.No more no more. How wrong you elite Europeans were. We sit in a place where there is abundance and we only need to be freed from the shackles of your loathsome dependable mistake to awaken our spirit and rise again.Long live Britain and all of its isles.Long live England. Long live Scotland. Long live Wales.Long live Ireland.
Britain under May has not tried to leave the EU, not at all. It's all farce.
It´s the thing, both sides play towards the same goal! Which is to enslave UK under EU forever. Switzerland makes it wealth by leeching other nations out of their wealth through their banking system. If EU gets it way, we´ll be looking at Mediterranean Union, which will remove the pretending of being democracy by EU. So, this negotiation by the UK side is ALL done by the most pro-EU corrupt politicians ever. No wonder it´s a mess.
The anger of many viewers is understandable, despite efforts of this very good video trying to bring clarity in.A bit of facts and history may further help in the understanding:UK applied for membership since 1961 being initially opposed by France . After applying again the UK got its membership in 1973. Pure free will. Nobody forced the UK to do it. From “The poor man of Europe” of the 70’s, UK managed to take advantage of EU’s membership turning into 2nd largest economy of the block and the fasted growing in recent history. Well, the UK did not manage well many processes, allowing for deindustrialization in many sectors which lead to increased powerty and highest levels of inequality in the EU besides creation of wealth and significant fortunes. But this was own making. This was not decided in Brussels. Then new right wing politicians like Farage took the dissatisfaction as an opportunity starting to blame the “Eurocrats in Brussels” and leading a push in favor of crashing out of the block. Farage repeated so many time his mantra of “taking back control and sovereignty” that it started to be assumed as real by ignorant people and reinforced by interested politicians like those of the ERG. Not clear if chicken or egg, this push started to be (or already was) supported by Russian forces, American forces, British and international capitalists (aiming at buying destroyed companies to sell them later) so that during the referendum, with the aid of well paid Cambridge Analytica, forces working against the UK managed to get 51,5% of the votes. Although this result was a clear indication of a profoundly divided country, it was turned into “the democratic will of the people” and repeatedly used as an argument to dampen that this result was an clear expression of a deep and lasting division. Politicians of both sides of the interests never discussed about the truth with their constituents (as the video above correctly tries to make), they just wanted to herd their herds on basis of patter and mantras, even because the underlying truth (also that of the video) was never easy to understand. Still today after almost three years there is no clear understanding. And without clarity about the underlying truth, it is difficult to get politicians aligned. And they don't want it. All they want is taking advantage, regardless their side. There are no good people here. However, Britain has many experts who could have helped to come to terms with Brexit, like Sir Ivan Rogers who was fried by T. May until resignation. But you have also leavers like Dr. Richard North of the Leave alliance, columnist Booker and many others. But they all were eliminated of the decision circuit as professional politicians want to exclusively hold control of the process in their own interest.Never believe in fairy tales nor easy to swallow political mantras!Think with the brain, not with the liver!Turn to real experts who really know what they are talking about.
What world do you live in mate, because it clearly isn't the same one the rest of us are living in.
What do you get when a queen has too many fake crowns?Brexit!
Eu: are you leaving?Uk: yes but no
You left out the key aspect - A Free Trade Deal with the EU and the UK. Its what the EU has done with Canada, Japan and South Korea and they were all nowhere near as aligned as the UK currently is.What you also didn't explain is WHY the UK established its red lines / deal breakers. The vote was for return of UK Sovereignty and all that entails. Its what every country outside the EU enjoys. Canada or Japan don't subsume lawmaking to Brussels or judicial oversight to the ECJ or have to allow millions of EU citizens into their lands so why should anyone else?There is this preconception created by two decades of EU propaganda that the EU is never wrong and the UK therefore must be. We are not. We were never asked if we wanted to join the EU and when we were asked 24 years later we said 'No Thanks'. Really simple. (And yes I do know we (me included) voted to remain in the then EEC in '75)It is the EU that created the sequential negotiations (contrary to Article 50) where money had to be agreed before citizens rights and with very little effort put into the future relationship. We cannot even agree a trade deal with the EU until AFTER we leave! That is EU Law so not the UK's fault.But sadly we in the UK are in the grip of a Remain minded Parliament that is doing all it can to defy the electorate that a) voted to leave and then b) voted those same MPs into power on manifestos that promised to deliver Brexit. It is a constitutional crisis by any measure and as the PM said yesterday it is now the people vs Parliament and I know who will win.
+Sharif Ela The EU was an unnecessary creation by the political class for their own ends. Almost like a solution looking for a problem. The ambition after WWII was to use mutual trade as the best means to secure peace in Europe after WWII. First we had the steel and coal deal under the Treaty of Paris in '51 which then became the EEC under the Treaty of Rome in '57. The UK joined the EEC and 8 other similar countries, I am very sure that had the EEC been left as it was and just added the 4 more countries they did none of this would have happened. The EEC gave us customs free borders, freedom of movement but it was about 30,000 a year in the UK and there was no subsuming of laws and courts to a foreign power. The EU has successfully undone much of the good work done by the EEC and created a political monstrosity that has to feed itself or die. Hopefully Brexit (if UK MPs have the balls) will be the first part of the starvation of the EU but that will be an added bonus to me. I just want my country back.
A sensible response. I’m mindful to say that if the EU is such a wonderful organisation, why is it so dogmatic about many of its founding principles that belong in a bygone age.
I think this is upside down. These aren't the UKs deal beakers, these are the EUs deal breakers. The EU has no interest in allowing the UK to simply walk away.
Canada: Some of them speak French- Dealbreaker.Sth Korea: Not white- Dealbreaker.
+Shawn Javery Errr did you watch the video?They were discussing what kind of deal the UK could strike with the EU as regarding deals that other countries have struck with the EU.My point is that none would make them happy.
You are ignoring that the EU isn't just a trade union, it's also a response to decades of instability in Europe. It doesn't make sense for a non-european country to join. At least not one physically connected to the region
So what you're saying is that the EU doesn't need to compromise at all? I don't think that's a negotiation.
I'm genuinely curious to know what you would like a post-Brexit EU-UK-relationship to look like. If Freedom of Movement is a red line for the UK, there are pretty much only Turkey-Style (no independent trade policy) and Canada-Style (trade agreements) left as possible relations.
The fact that Barnier and his team had to produce this slide and present it to the British team speaks volumes about how knowledgeable our politicians are. David Davis turned up to the first meeting and didn't bother bring even so much as a pen and paper. Google it.
drink everytime he says dealbreaker
I guess Britain wanting to leave the European Union is nothing like Ireland wanting to leave the British empire for the last 800 years? Hypocrites....
Those of us who read the treaties, knew this BEFORE the referendum, and when we voted Leave, this is EXACTLY what we want and Voted for, the ONLY option that is actually leaving.My questions are:-1. HOW could anyone in Government NOT know this from Day1?2. IF anyone did, WHY did they not make this very publicly known?
You are a small minority, though. Most people who voted to leave didn't know shit, except that some influential people told them that the EU is evil and they're better off without it.The government knew of the problem, didn't want to leave and expected the population to know and vote "remain", too. They lost that gamble.Basically, the government sees a river, wants to jump over it, but fails and lands face-first in the water. Now they're struggling to stay afloat. Meanwhile people who knew water is wet and wanted in the river anyway (you) say "should have built a boat", those who knew and didn't want in, say "shouldn't have jumped" and those who were clueless are just angry they're suddenly wet because nobody told them water is wet.
I don`t understand . U.K. voted to leave . Its clear . Leave . Its not about a deal. Leave. However if the E.U. wanted to come up with a special relationship , yea that's o.k. too , but if not spite your own faces losers we stop buying your goods , bravo.
You forgot FTA like Canada and South Korea though.
+Broken Physics exactly, the eu didnt forget it, cgp grey did. Or did you hear him mention it? Of course FTA means border on Ireland. If you dont want one you move left, at least to Switzerland. Basic logic
They're right there, with a big green checkmark, just left of the no-deal line. That's what the EU wants to do, given Britains position. The main problem is - how to handle the Irish border.
Great video. I voted Leave - fuck the EU!
trying to leave the EU is like trying to cancel an Audible subscription
A perfect illustration as to why the UK government's negotiating strategy was basically a load of stupid and silly wishful thinking and really amplifies why all this nonsense should have not begun in the first place. We should have accepted our situation and planned a WTO - no deal strategy from the start.
This is because the British public see leaving the E.U. is more problems that it is worth. Scotland is threatening to leave the UK and Northern Ireland is saying they want to leave as well. If for example, brexit, requires a breakup of the UK, that will be unacceptable. I don’t think any PM would want to be the prime minister who broke up the UK.
My prediction is a hung parliament. Leading to a crisis. Theresa may and the Conservative party will have problems. James corbyn and the labor party who used to be pro- brexit and is now anti- brexit. I believe it will lead to a second referendum, which the stay in the E.U. will win.
Only the Ukraine has a hung Parliament 😂😂😂😂😂😂
You said it right there , Capitol , which most people in the UK don't have much of , through heavy tax on everything , it's the out of touch arseholes in the government and there associates at the top with there sweet deals that are gonna get effed up and possibly taxed , that's why there dragging there feet, the British public have been told to Suck it for years by the conservative party and now there reeling with anger now the shoes on the other foot , that is what's going on.
Hahaha frustrated Brits... Brits can't get what they want and now they throw with shit on EU
You mean the EU that expanded too quickly and is showing the signs for it? You mean the EU that has become so bureaucratic that it barely functions beyond a snails pace?You mean the EU that overlooks the many MANY infringements that its eastern nations make simply to be larger?You mean the EU that seems to have completely forgotten where the majority of its money is currently held?Yeah, that EU...
The EU is an awful bureaucratic oligarchy that the UK gets no benefit from beyond trade and it isn't worth being strong armed into joining the EU for anyway.Having said that, the fact that they can't exit the EU is entirely the UKs fault. It should've been done within a fortnight of the decision to trigger article 50 was made. Just a "we're out" mic drop hard brexit and done. Sort everything else out on the fly.The reason it hasn't been done is because the UK has spineless incompetent politicians that never thought that they'd ever be called on to actually govern the country. They thought the EU would continue to do that for them. The result of the referendum came as a complete shock to them and they've been blithering ever since.
When the EU was just a trade organisation, things were OK, but it grew into all sorts of other areas, and it's rubbish. Why are the current options the only ones available? Probably because the EU has presumed so much power. If they don't want to trade favourably with the 5th largest economy in the world, more fool them.
EU: do u want to leave?UK: yesEU: that puts us £39B out of pocket?UK: well we did take on a loan to rebuild UK & Europe after WW2 & not had a cent off u for it?EU: wtf has that got to do with us?UK: £3.62TR (or£3620M in metric) that Germany should have paid us but was written off in 1990 is a good reason to play nicelyEU: far right lager drinking bastards!
Uh, no comment on Canada and South Korea?
+brt john this.
Those are Free Trade agreements that took several years to be negotiated, the EU/UK right now are fighting over the withdraw agreement, long way to go before they can start fighting over a trade agreement.
Switzerland are not signing any future agreements with the EU!
In short having your cake and eating it.
EU: Are you staying or leavingUK: Ooorrddaahhh oordahh!
fun thing is that the UK had already carved out the best deal of any EU member for themselves, and that wasn't enough.
+93 Octane Because the other deals were quite good, depending on what you are targeting.
And considering how awful that deal really was, you have to wonder why the other states are selling themselves down the river to Brussels.
NO DEAL! BREXIT NOW!
are you okay?
say my name
Could you care to explain your username first?
A functional analysis of the EU reveals that the "core" of the EU is not actually full membership, but the Single Market. Why? Because by some kind of alchemy, people are smuggled into a free trade agreement as though they are the equivalent of goods, services and capital - i.e. in the concept of "Freedom of Movement," which creates a de facto European Citizenship in any nation that signs up to it, and that includes the EEA / EFTA.
Lack representation not only in parliament, but more important in the Council.
Not free movement of people, but free movement of labour.
Brainwashed education to make us fools...that is the reward for our love, telling us that democracy is a dove?
Where the heck is democracy in that video a problem? Even democracy is bound to logic.
uk…. yes but no but yes but no …. Cameron lef,t he knew it couldn’t work but offered it for election purposes a perfect example of party over country ….
Of course what the EU should do is apply no restrictions or regulations upon the UK and just trade with the UK tariff free. There, easy, I fixed it for you.
23+alen40to The two economies, both larger than the UK's are in serious trouble. Germany is likely to slip into recession and France is expected to be overtaken by the UK shortly. The trade surplus will most certainly disappear once the UK is able to buy from the world under WTO terms, especially if the EU wishes to start a trade war by applying tariffs which the UK would no doubt respond to. The EU has everything to lose on this argument and you are deluding yourself if you think otherwise. Just in time can and is managed from shipment from around the world, including China. North Africa can supply perishables. Your head is in the sand if you think otherwise. So no, the EU loses this one and therefore it's not in it's interests to start a trade war. EU 0 UK 1.What the 27 countries need is not important. What Germany and France need, is. They need the UK's money as a net contributor to the EU. Without it, they will have to make up the shortfall. Disastrous for them and they know it, especially as both now have perilous economies. Here's that cuckoo clock for you and thanks for the good price you paid for it. EU 0 UK 2.A falling pound (and let's be honest, it's not dropping like a sack, that's a massive exaggeration and you know it), is good for the indigenous economy and will encourage home growth. Money remaining in the UK and job creation within the UK. EU 0 UK 3.The Irish border can be manned by electronic systems which already exist, look at Switzerland for example. This is a hollow point scoring argument, easily debunked. I'm shocked you would try and raise such a non argument which can be and is so easily dismissed. Dyson has increased their workforce in the UK recently and have moved their headquarters overseas. To Asia. Nothing to do with Brexit. Nissan and Panasonic moved because of a free trade deal signed between the EU and Japan, meaning they no longer need manufacture within the EU. Nothing to do with Brexit. A spokesman for JLR said the Slovakian plant had been developed over several years to manufacture the Land Rover Discovery and the latest move was, yep, you guessed it, nothing to do with Brexit. The remaining Sollihull plant is to be redeveloped to manufacture electric vehicles. I don't recall Airbus has made any announcement other than throwing their rattle out of the pram. I just googled it, nope, just talk, no definitive plans to move production out of the UK. Bank of America moves 100 jobs to Ireland due to Brexit. Oh dear, never mind. Will the sky fall down because of this? So in all your examples, most are false and outright lies on your part and I can find just 100 bankster job losses. Whooppee fucking do. You have no argument here mate, just outright lies and conjecture. EU 0 UK 4.Yep, The EU needs the UK and boy are they going to suffer if they don't cooperate. The job losses in the German banking system as Deutsche Bank crashes and in the Munich auto industry will soon bring the EU grovelling. The UK exit from the EU provides the UK with global opportunities with almost no downside. Over the next ten years, the UK economy will boom.
+Airstrip One Funny, especially considering that the EU is 500 million people and 27 countries (two of which have bigger economies than the UK). The trade surplus simply means that your economy is import-based. The surplus won't disappear, because the EU is simply the only place that most of the things the UK imports can be procured from. Because the goods are either perishable and can't be shipped from the other side of the world or because it need just in time delivery, where if someone orders something today it needs to be delivered tomorrow. Do you think this would be possible with China? Hell no.The import surplus would remain the same, but the EU would have to place tariffs on UK exports to the EU, which would make the UK manufacturers uncompettive in the EU...If you trully believed that a bloc of 27 countries would need one country more than that country needs the 27, then I have a clock to sell you...The UK's pound is dropping like a sack of flour (terrible for an import economy, BoE was trying to keep it very expensive all these years because it was beneficial). The border in Ireland would have to be erected even though there are still morons that think it won't be necesarry to man that border, just because it's easier...Big multinational companies like Airbus, Dyson, Panasonic, Nissan, Jaguar Land Rover, Bank of America and many others are either relocating to the EU or have already relocated and thousands of jobs have already been lost.. But please, keep thinking that the EU needs you so much. And when in 9 days they let you crash out with no deal, you are going to continue saying that they need you more..
+alen40to because the UK imports more from the EU then vice versa. It's in their interests not to start a trade war with the UK. Especially considering the German banking system is on the verge of collapse, they're going to need the financial muscle of the city of London soon. It's not the time for the EU to start making an enemy of the UK, or indeed, even just try and take it on in a trade war. It'll end very badly for the EU.
Well, it's even way more simple than that. Uk wants all the benefits of being in the EU without the duties connected to them. It's pretty much the same if a citizen of any given states want's to be protected by the laws of the state and also wants to use it's infrastructure, while demanding to be not being directable by said laws and also don't want to pay taxes to upkeep the infrastructure. And the UK wants this completely ignoring that they already had a special deal with way less duties. It's the single most baffeling case of r/EntitledPeople combined with r/ThatHappened
+Inkyminkyzizwoz Yeah I know, my former post wasn't ment as to say that Brexiteers are right wingers, just to point out that there are some quite similar ideas of benefit without duty all over the world and just happen to usually attract radical rights in the cases of US and Germany.
+Oroberus Actually, Brexit supporters come from all over the political spectrum and there are some people that want out because they view the EU as too capitalistic
+wppb50 Not only them, check for 'Souvereign Citizens' (in the US) and 'Reichsbürger' (in germany) are a whole movements of people, that think the state owes them while they don't have to do anything for it and civil duties won't apply to them. Usually you find them in the far right/radical right/extremist right of the policitcal spectrum, just like the whole Brexit stuff was made up by the right wing of the UK political spectrum and then heaveily marketed.
"It's pretty much the same if a citizen of any given states want's to be protected by the laws of the state and also wants to use it's infrastructure, while demanding to be not being directable by said laws and also don't want to pay taxes to upkeep the infrastructure."You've just described a fair chunk of my extended family...
+Inkyminkyzizwoz Typo, thanks, changed
We could just tell the eu to do one as they did push there luck way too far. We budge and they dont means it is not a negotiation. Both need to stop with the chest puffing and think about the whole of europe. Imo
This is what happens when the UK votes Brexit but has a Remain government.It is also what happens when the EU makes absolutely zero concessions to us.
i need translation...
This is by far the clearest explanation of brexit that I've seen so far.
We could have had a deal at step one -- if only the EU did not insist on free movement of people. Why is this principle so important to the EU?
This just makes me think that being a part of the EU means you give up your own nation's autonomy in every major way to a council of unelected officials who can destroy your economy if you don't do what they say. I think I'd stick with the World Trade Organization.
We elect EU officials every few years, and the EU won't be the one destroying the UK's economy, the UK would be doing that itself. The EU didn't vote the UK out of the market, the UK did that to itself. Why should the EU give preferential treatment to a third country (the UK in 10 days) ? Wouldn't that make the EU pointless?
The UK is a mess that doesn't know what it wants.
T-minus 10 days. Bercow has told May to fuck off. May, rebuffed, wants up to two more (squandered) years to get her shit together. Meanwhile, the EU be like, “Hold my beer.”
wHY CAnt they have their own orbit. Why do they need to be put in a box.
And what would that look like?
Or.. the EU can make a deal (new orbit) with the UK specific to the UK.. like the EU did with switzerland and Turkey... but heeeeey, that's putting some of the onus on the EU and we can't have that.
Who's afraid of the WTO?!
since WTO rules are quite harsh, i'd be afraid, especially if i'd be british
Next time Germany starts a war and invades France, Italy (all of Europe) the UK will stay out of it.
+Pana po’o Not if the UK's GDP starts shrinking. Nobody would want to follow a country whose economy starts declining after leaving the EU..
+alen40to If the UK leaves then the rest of the EU is doomed within 10 years as others follow etc.
+Pana po’o No i think the UK owes a debt of gratitude to the EU because it's been having a great deal for years inside (rebates and getting to choose which rules to follow and which ones to just ignore and so on), so if anything I think the EU should give the UK no deal and let them crash. They've already showed that their politicians are incompetent (2-3 years of that, so it's kind of hard to deny). And with their referendum they've showed that they do not belong or do not appreciate the secuirity and stability that the EU provides. So they are always going to be a big obstacle in the way of the EU if they remain aligned with it. So might as well cut the cord and let them dangle in the air. If anything it would disuade euro-sceptics inside the EU, because if the UK economy starts shrinking then nobody would be advocating leaving the EU anymore...And if you are talking about WW2 (that kind of gratitude), then you are completely out of touch... I won't even address that. Live in historical delusion all you want, but nobody owes you shit..
I'm trying to say don't you think Europe owes a debt of gratitude to the UK, so just allow the UK to leave with whatever deal it wants.
That's the point of the EU, to stop a war between the members from happening. Have you seen a war happen between member states since the EU was established?
"Vice versa" not "visa versa"
You realise the UK people want to leave but the political elites refuse to.
+RomanII1997 - You're obviously not British. The political elites are SELECTED and then ELECTED on party policy, this lot have all gone against their manifesto's, they were returned to that place with a mandate to take the UK out of the EU and they are refusing to carry that out, they are behaving like dictators and despots not representatives and it's the people that are Sovereign we just LEND that to parliament.
"the political elites" (tm) are votet into the parlament by..... "the UK People"(tm)
"To brexit" actually means in german now "saying that you leave but u don't"U don't have to guys, just sayin
Yes we want no deal
500 MPs are the problem.... wanting to remain and not representing their constituents! Watch this space when they want to be re-elected … my vote is going to someone who will represent the constituents...
wich, in a really surprising number of people, is remain.
Hallelujah! Can you see the light?
Funny how people keep talking about trade, whilst that is not the reason people voted Brexit. They voted because other things are broken and will not be fixed by the EU. To think the UK is the bad guy for wanting brexit. The EUs media, immigration policy and warmongering has been out of control for years. Which has led to terror attacks, grooming gangs, unjust wars, unjust censoring and propaganda.Its not like one country can change that for the better on their own. Therefore the only option left is to leave the EU entirely. EU should be remade with better rules imo.
EU Warmongering? State now, EU has no army at all. State now, British Army is the biggest one in Europe (excluding russia, but we all tend to exclude russia) and is fighting with french army about whose is more engaged in war. even the - imho - overused German military is far less on it's feet. And we really have soldiers anywhere, wich is strange enough.
You're wrong that the UK wants a relationship. The UK is not a singular entity. It's not a woman in a Union Flag skirt wearing a crown, sipping tea. The majority of UK citizens voted to Leave, which means leave completely. The MPs however are attempting to thwart democracy by forcing us to be still in the EU but with no say in the politics (not that we really had any, but they used to politely pretend we had, while favouring Germany, and France to a lesser extent than Germany).
MP however have to consider Northern Ireland Situation
Cillit Bang Well I remember you had a lot to say since UK was literally bombarding every reform and consolidation effort and shouting about leaving EU since 70s. Just go already.
Are the EU and UK lesbians? You said they are having a break-up and portray the UK as a queen sipping tea, & the EU as a tutting woman arms-folded. (Quite accurate)
*including organisations as EU, UNO, NATO etcpp*even including stuff like FBI and shit.
Well, every country at CGP Grey is pictured as female.
More nonsensical bullshit. The EU is famous for its ability to compromise and flexibility to be able to create new bullshit half way houses.
0:53 the UK's dress flag is upside down, come on CGP Grey I know you just flipped it!
the problem is ppl are confusing speculations with facts which is creating misinformationboth sides are lying to get what they want and thats why it seems like the UK doesnt know what it wantsthe UK ppl that are most affected by EU laws know exactly what they wantand the majority of them are leave voters
+RomanII1997 no the ppl living in rural areas most affected by the globalization of the EU statesits the same all over the world in any post industrial country
You mean bankers?
It's still weird that loads of politicians in the UK are yelling that they can't come back on the referendum outcome.If no one every had the chance to reconcider choices we all had a huge problem. But apparently that's the way the UK rolls... No more selling items, divorces, abortions, etc etc you are stuck with your choices ;)
Its sad that the UK got the right idea in that the EU is bad but for the wrong reasons. The EU is essentially just Industrial colonialism run by German industrialists.
Did Brexit really happen?UK: Wel yes but actually no.
