EU says no more Brexit negotiations with UK; Risk of no-deal jumps

The EU said on Thursday it will not negotiate Brexit again. This comes after Britain’s parliament rejected the divorce package for a second time in a vote on Wednesday. In coordinated statements, the European Council and the bloc’s executive European Commission said the EU had done ’all that is possible to reach an agreement’. Parliament will vote Thursday on whether to delay Brexit past March 29.

As long as the UK maintains good trade relations with the US, Canada, And the larger Asian markets, they will be fine. The EU needs the UK's money more than the UK needs the failing EU. No deal is the good deal.

Business are leaving the UK in droves along with billionaires taking out their money before the deadline. The UK economy is going to collapse and it's going to be hilarious. On the other hand it will also probably be the trigger for the next recession/depression. Thanks Koch brothers your foreign election interference has truly fucked us yet again.

May has been employing a strategy that is designed to bring around a second referendum. Her negotiations were deliberately weak so as to appear as if she had exhausted all avenues. Faced with the choice and helped to decide by the usual scaremongering MPs would opt for an extension to article 50 the EU for their part would declare no more talking. This way it would be a straight drag race between a second referendum or leave on WTO terms. The new referendum would be rigged one way or another and the political class walks free. If that’s too fanciful for you you can always completely suspend belief and accept that her and her government entered into negotiations declaring their intention to not leave without a deal( completely giving away her best card) and continuing on in the most inept and servile manner imaginable.

When we voted to leave, we didn't vote to leave "only if we get a deal". Any delay, and especially any question of cancelling Brexit, can only be seen as treachery on the part of politicians. And you can ask the mussolini family how that tends to work out.
