It seems Britain and his people is going to be the biggest loser of all. Economy is going lesser , the debts to Eu are high and the creation of jobs is slowing down.They hoped to get soon a trade agreement with The US it seems to work out slowly. Certainly after the scandalpress that accuses Tony Blair to have informed President Trump that the SIS was observing The US !! The EU neither is in a hurry to speed up negociations.
The future of Britains working people is at stake. And this because of organized manipulation of the people and its elections. It proves again how a vulnerable situation our democracies are in today. Also because of the abuse of technological innovations and psychological games! doh Poor country!

It seems Brexit is to become a doom scenario for the UK. I wonder how long the UK will be able to withstand it and will remain a UK? More and more resistance against the Brexit is growing. Mostly between the young people.Theresa May even lost het popularity in her own party!! Also knowing that she was opposed against a Brexit. Why did she accepted the job of prime minister as nobody today wants it ?? doh

@ Jefke59 I must admit what you are saying especially about the NHS. But we must be aware our NHS isn't facing the same problems! I worked 25 years in it was fired at 55 years old. Reason? To high salary costs!
Nurses from southern and Eastern Europe are imported as they are young, less critical and.....cheaper!!!
A friend of me, Director nursing in a regional hospital confirmed it. Health care has become a booming business and the main goal of the investors is to obtian as much profits as possible. One of the tricks is to lower the salaries and company taxes! It sounded familiar in my ears! (cynism)

Not a single message from anybody (still) living in the UK on this thread. British expats and EU citizens having lived and worked in the UK don't cover the extreme points of view of this polemic.

Brexit will never happen - the politicians won't allow the will of the people to be translated into any meaningful action.

The British leaders have once again succeeded in carrying out a delaying manoeuvre.
Will Mr. "troublemaker" B. Johnston be able to realise his nonsense when he becomes Prime Minister?
The British leaders have once again succeeded in carrying out a delaying manoeuvre.
Now the date has been postponed to 31 October. Why? Clearly for economic reasons.
The British people is being taken hostage by an elite of rich entrepreneurs who want to secure their profits, that is all. scold
Will Mr. "troublemaker" B. Johnston be able to realise his nonsense when he becomes prime minister? What is next? A new referendum?
it is even better than "Monty Pythons Circus" rolling on the floor laughing

The biggest problem with the EU is Belgium. More bureaucrats than anywhere else in Europe, dictating to everyone else about how they should live their lives. All the pigs with their snouts in the trough. The Lisbon treaty was the line in the sand where Brussels crossed over and made the EU into a non democratic regime. I think others will follow the UK unless the EU reforms. If the UK is permitted to thrive, that reform will have to happen quicker.

correction:
Brexit is a fact since 31/01/2020 but an additional a transitional arrangement has been put in place until the end of this year. Reason: purely economic.
Now I am looking forward who will be rigth. Future wil tell us.

Picatrix: Yes France has problems, but at least they are waking up to the
fact. Belgium, just more of the same thing.

Not only by not addressing the problem, a certain religious cult that should by banned in Europe. Their beloved EU, is bankrupt.
Greece is now nothing more than a failed state, and soon to be joined
by Italy, Spain and Portugal.

Not the best of posts to follow. You may be interested to know that the schools teach the children that France and USA won the war, it’s only when you press them for where were they fighting from and where was their army it falls apart. Mainly African conscripts from the colonies who didn’t even get a thankyou after the war.
Brexit is becoming a mess but I think if the Uk pushes for higher standards and sticks up to rogue states like China, Russia etc then it’s more than the EU does.
We are supposed to have sanctions on Russia but then Germany builds another pipeline for oil and gas nordstream 2 from them, they are making the eu reliant on them plus who’s cutting the carbon emissions ? It’s all smoke and mirrors and paying (trading) carbon credits.
The EU is not squeaky clean they should find the m 2% of their budget which disappears every year and means they can’t balance the books.
By the way I live in France but the french like to stay in 1970 they don’t want change, it doesn’t matter how much you work the state will find a way of getting it off you.
