Oh old Harris will defend them - to the death. He always does where the EU is concerned.

He probably would, but he is an imbecile.

I would be delighted if the Germans (EU) imposed a FTT after we leave. It would drive more business to London and I would actuvely alter our tax system and regulations to encourage it.

I rather think the EU are sabotaging the negotiations to sink any possibility of a deal. Because of this I would favour walking away and I would not return but allow 29/3 to come and go.

There should have been a Referendum about Maastricht - it would have been rejected. Had there been we would be here today and possibly we might have saved much of Europe from itself.

But your point is well made. MPs have no right to try and overturn the Referendum. That can only be done by another Referendum which is why 2016 trumps 1975.

By words and deeds the EU27 have shown no friendship towards the UK and her people. They have been unremittingly hostile and aggressive. You are placing the blame on the wrong shoulders. All the people of the UK have said, in a perfectly democratic way (which you disagree with) is that they do not wish to belong to an organisation, its aims and objectives we do not share. That cretin Juncker said on 24/6 'This will not be an amicable divorce', so they had already decided to go to war with the UK. And yet all you do is blame the UK - the UK is always wrong seems to be your motto.

You are quite right. The EU has deliberately set out to wreck the negotiations. This is partly driven by the view that the UK and her people must be 'punished' for daring to leave the 'EU Project'. As the Duncker said the day after the Referendum 'This will not be an amicable divorce'. Say what you want about Mrs May, but the UK said has been very resonable and accommodating, far too much so in my view. The EU has been hostile and aggressive, and there is no indication that the EU wants a constructive relationship with the UK after we leave. I think this is a very sad indictment of the EU and the Franco/German axis that runs it. secondly by having no deal with the UK the EU will impose tariffs which will (minus collection costs) net 7-8 billion Euros, which goes a very long way to filling the hole left by the UK. The shortfall of 3-4 billion can be found by a bit of arm twisting and a few cuts. That explains much.

You seem to have forgotten how the EU removed two democratically elected Governments: in Italy and Greece.
