    Brexit will be so smooth that no one will notice any differences on 1st Feb due to the amazing Mr Johnson.

    I think that may be true - Brexit will be buried for as long as this government can possibly bury it for.

    Which will be a few weeks, until the trade negotiations start.

    O Fear not good green and pleasant landers

    Uncle Nigel will be back with the "Real BREXIT Party" we mean it this time when the mean and Nasty EU and it pesky facts don't give us sunlit uplands (awful don't they know who you are :rolleyes:) Nigel will be back championing the bewildered people who believe all the "exotic people" will vanish as of Next Sat, saying this isn't what we voted for (still no clarification on what you actually did vote for and why any deal that meant leaving wouldn't satisfy that) and of course people will jump on the bandwagon because, heaven forbid it could actually be their fault :rolleyes::D

    My MEP has pointed out nothing really happens on 01/02/20 but a lot could happen on 01/01/21! (As far as our everyday lives are concerned).

    I does look like the apocalypse remainers keep predicting has been called off again. Reminds of that Peter Cook sketch where he’s leading a cult on top of a mountain, waiting for the end of the world. When it doesn’t happen, he’s like “same time next week?”

    We enter the transition period until Jan 2021. Let's see where we are after that.

    Sarcasm aside, i think you could be quite shocked at how many people believe this to be exactly the case, TBF if the Gov are saying there are no Border checks and the EU and Ireland saying there are, then who knows

    It is inevitable that there will be some kind of border checks simply because the EU insist upon it.
    Place the blame where it belongs, with the United Soviet States of Europe.

    You don't want the UK to be controlling what's coming in and out of our country? Why did you vote to take back control of our borders?

    Blaming the EU for keeping its own rules?
    For not making exceptions for a country which decided to leave?

    In which case why do the United Soviet States of America also insist on border checks?

    I can't make out whether that describes the view of Remainers or Leavers about what will happen on 1.2.2020! Both I think.

    We will not be in it after the 31st so it will be an EU requirement not a UK requirement.
    When we start opening up new markets outside the EU., the EU., relevance to us will diminish.
  19. lexus300

    lexus300 Star commenter

    What utter nonsense.
    Border checks are needed where no trade agreement is established or where trade agreements so specify. If we offer zero checks and the EU do not then we place similar strictures on the EU., or anybody else for that matter.

    Exactly - the EU keeping its own rules.
    So why use the phrase 'place the blame'?
    There is no 'blame' for the EU keeping its rules anymore than blaming the US, the UK, Australia or Outer Mongolia for keeping their rules.

    You can't have it both ways.
    This is one of the consequences of leaving.
