Qui I I I ite Disapointed. (999 lyrics).
I didn’t want a bloody deal, as I knew that we would only be able to obtain a bad one.
Metaphorically we still have one foot in the EU grave.
Very sad imho.
Well, I have some respect for this sort of view for consistency. More so than those who trumpeted the withdrawal agreement before deciding it was awful. And it is a terrible deal, as any deal was going to be.
I do find it odd as to what you were expecting. It’s frankly not in our interests to not have trade agreements with the majority of countries which border us. It’s damaging to the economy and all trade deals involve compromise over sovereignty to some degree, because it involves seeking acceptance among more than one interested party. With us standing alone against a group of 27 nations the compromise is more likely to come from us than them.
It’s quite remarkable how so many think that when every country, practically, are seeking more streamlined trade deals with each other we should be shutting up shop and not trading freely. The much vaunted “Australia style deal” which was being put forward by some Brexiters is not liked by the Aussies who are wanting a freer trade deal with the EU.
What’s even odder are the free trade loving capitalists like Bucks who want to make trade far less free and championing the benefits of such while praising the virtues of free trade. We can decide to shut ourselves off from all trade deals through principles surrounding sovereign purity, but those calling for such need to accept the consequences to free trade and the diminished economy and risk to the poor resulting from economic harm.
