So Boris is paying the £39bn after all and this is “No Deal” in new clothin on 11:30 - Oct 18 by Sibelius8

"Due to certain clauses in Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement, the UK would have been legally bound to the EU’s ‘level playing field’ rules – such as minimum standards on environmental policy and employment law."

The above quotation is about May's proposed deal, not Johnson's.

The whole Spectator article's concluding paragraph sums up Johnson's deal neatly and precisely:

"Now that the backstop has been removed, it also appears that ECJ’s jurisdiction has been massively reduced. The ECJ will still have jurisdiction over EU citizen’s rights for a time-limited period, and over disputes that relate to an interpretation of EU law in the WA. Northern Ireland will also be subject to some ECJ jurisdiction as long as it remains aligned to the EU. But once we leave, the UK will be free to set its own laws, in its own parliament, with its own elected representatives voting on legislation."


That last bit, about making laws in our own parliament with our own elected representatives.

Haven't we always been able to do that, or were all those general elections I voted in hallucinations or something?

That was a primary reason for my voting remain!


Me too. Someone actually posted on twitter that British workers rights are actually better than the EU ones when you look at the legislation. Yes that may be true, but within the EU they could not be made WORSE than the EU ones.

This is what I worry about, the EU acts as a kind of 'Backstop' (lol) to our own laws, so they couldn't actually be be made worse.

Why anyone actually wants any of this baffles me. most of the laws 'imposed' (that we agreed to have imposed on us) by the EU are actually beneficial to us

So we'll basically have what we have now but just be a lot poorer and with far fewer rights for the average citizen. Where do I sign?


I'm merely quoting an article that summarises the proposed new deal. My own opinions do not come into it at all.

Regarding the actual article, you perhaps do not understand such a neutral report. It does not indicate anyone being poorer. It does not state any loss of rights for "the average citizen" - whatever that may mean. You are merely transferring your own opinions and prejudices to where such specifics do not exist.

But following the logic that hard brexit affects us more than them, it gives them a useful stick to beat us with in negotiations as that next deadline approaches.


Indeed. No deal puts a stop watch as well as a gun to our heads in the trade negotiations to come.

It would play to the rabid Brexiteers and their media as some sort of No Surrender nonsense but it was always about weakening our position even further during the real negotiations.

So to have any sway over Europe they're relying on the EU caring more about their own citizens and the lesser impact No Deal will have on some of them than the British government cares about its citizens and the devastating impact it will have on many of them. As a negotiating tactic, it speaks volumes about our politicians and government and their priorities.

We signed up to the Common Market and then ratified the Maastricht Treaty and the Treaty of Lisbon. This means we are bound by some alignment with the laws of other member nations. Should we leave the European Union on 31st October we will no longer have to align with those laws...apart from those laws the deal requires us to align with. But apart from that we will be absolutely free to abide by whatever laws Parliament promulgates...apart from any ones that other trade deals require us to align with...or that the European Court of Justice requires if we want to keep in with respectable nations...oh, and there are the Geneva Conventions and a bundle of other stuff like that...but we can just blindside those...can't we?

They must have whistled in the negotiations.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

Ahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!

If the article does not touch on economic forecasts relating to the deal or to our loss of rights (freedom of movement as just one example) I'd suggest it's not neutral. The fact it's title is something on the lines of 'Why Boris' deal is better than May's' also isn't an indicator of a neutral report of simple detail.

Wasn't it a Spectator article as well? The Spectator aren't known for being neutral, they're the PM's former employer and are unashamedly right of centre. The inability to critique news sources is a huge issue in this country currently, as you've nicely demonstrated.

Always have been IMO.

IMO the basic conflict between the UK and the EU has been because the UK doesn't like being told how to take better care of its citizens and their rights. That's far too socialist for the UK politicians' and media's prevailing free-market, trickle-down ideology of the past 40 years.

Point 4.

Due to certain clauses in Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement, the UK would have been legally bound to the EU’s ‘level playing field’ rules – such as minimum standards on environmental policy and employment law.

This is a good thing?

5 points on why diarrhea is better than constipation would be more apt.

Do you mean a conflict/tension between the EU and UK politicians or the public? It fits for the politicians, as this has almost exclusively been an internal Tory matter for as long as I've been alive.

The tragedy is that 'the people' have never been bothered about our EU membership, 'the people' versus the EU is a new construct. Farage and the right wing press banged away with their lies over the years, but UKIP support was small and this didn't translate into voter concerns. The EU only became a matter for widespread public interest when the referendum was announced, and has steadily increased the 'sides' have been wound up by the organ grinders (and immigration has been made a cornerstone of the Europe (non)debate):



The majority have been dragged into this by a lunatic fringe, but it's affecting all of us and will distort the priorities in this country for years to come.

I'd have said both, because while you're certainly correct re the internal Tory divisions, I think there's long been a latent undercurrent of grumble amongst many of the public about the EU (along "bureaucratic pedants who we have to pay for sitting in expensive ivory towers deciding that bananas must be straight" lines).

You're probably right that it's taken the referendum to poke that hornet's nest & release the angry buzzing though!

The most ridiculous & aggravating thing about this whole clusterf*ck of assorted sh1te is that apart from the Tory politicians who stand to increase their individual wealth by wrecking the country, the 52% of the public who voted leave seem to have done so on the basis of nothing but emotion, feelings, and the lies they were fed. Tragic. You couldn't make it up if your name were Kafa and you'd written a work of fiction called "The secrets of sneaky backdoors - how to ruin a country" (my title).
