    You've not done any trying at all. You've only told us your demands. Can't wait to see the back of you

    Each side thinks they can survive and prosper without the other. Let's try it and see how it works out.

    Deutschland or La France will never agree to a UK trade agreement in the absence of a similar trade agreement with the USA as the leaders of 27 would be signing their name s to a Atlantic Economic and Trade Area against them and EU can pay the tariffs into the UK internal market and at least then the British would not have a level field with the Americans and EU both .

    The British have armada of Countries arriving soon that will make trade arrangements with UK that the EU cannot stop and their 26 Countries are more value than the 26 counties and will the EC impose a hard border in Ireland to safeguard their Customs union against a open border to USA and trading partners including UK via NI

    If the EU persist in refusing what we want then end it NOW. No further talks .What is the point of dragging on with this .
    We voted to leave so the country is behind the decision to end the talks NOW. Only Labour with Remainers want this to drag on and on .
    We will be welcomed around the world so CANCEL any Theresa May betrayal agreements

    Hi Boris. If you don’t walk away tomorrow then the entire UK voters will know you are actually May in disguise. A remainer pretending to be a Brexiteer. Are you indeed the puppet the EU think you are. Imagine the respect you will get if tomorrow you walk out of the farcical negotiations and the incrimination if you don’t.

    Those who think WTO is great have no idea what it is, it means competition with much cheaper countries, the British will have to work very cheap just to have a job, the average payment is only £ 2.70 a day, yes a day, if Business can`t get people to work this cheap they will go out of Business, Farmers forget it to make a profit, in the US a farm worker only earn $ 4.40 to pick a ton of tomatoes, it will be much cheaper just to import even with tariff, the car industry in the UK will soon be gone, sure McLaren and Rolls Royce say they will stay but for how long, they are still owned by foreigners, forget about Airbus in the UK it will also be gone in a few years, Rolls Royce Jet engines will soon be made outside Berlin in their new factory, millions of jobs will leave the UK and it will hit the service sector very hard, the job loss in the UK will be in the range of and in between 4 and 10 millions and they will all fight for a job and then soon people will work very cheap just to buy food.

    No sorry the UK isn't disappointed Or Surprised this was expected, You have to laugh at the dramatics.
    WTO is what the Majority of Brexit voters insist on, Brexit voters never wanted a deal that is what the Remaniacs wanted.
    10 more weeks is nothing to the last 4 years of stalemate, Time to Move On. Tick Tock.

    The EU is still playing the long deal and now their tactic is playing the victim and ask for fairness, the EU needs to accept that the UK are now back to a sovereign country and as a result the waters and fishing rights in international law revert back to the UK. The only option for both sides is going to be unsatisfactory as they cannot agree on their respective red lines and without any time limits and movement means it all has to end in a no deal and move to WTO terms, both side will suffer with lost jobs and no fish but eventually trade will go on worldwide and little agreements will be made as a relationship and opportunity arises. Finally Brexit has revealed the huge lack of trust and honesty between all of the nations of the EU and have a lot to learn before the wounds will repair themselves.

    Ah, this moment when the world class poker player goes to showdown and British government still looking for pick-up sticks. 👍

    The French are being awkward because they know that if they lose the fishing rights they will just let the fishermen block ports whilst on land every barrier to trade is used. Any government that surrenders to the old enemy will be finished.
