1. The one argument or no deal #Brexit that I can respect is a need for a complete political clear out but that must also include the ERG scumbags - and there is a real danger with this line of thinking that actually it won't make any difference.
2. The problem is as much to do with our top down culture of politics where Westminster continues to set the agenda and media falls into line - and so do all of you. The no deal propaganda campaign starts in the bowels of the tory right apparatus. Establishment as it gets.
3. There is no way our political class is ever going to admit they are the source of our problems thus we cannot expect them to resolve the problems - nor will they get out of the way voluntarily. They will continue to play their dimal tribal games.
4. Already politics is dominated by the Labour/Tory tribalism and its all about taking power to divvy up the spoils and impose their agendas on us. This is not democratic participatory democracy. This is just electoral dictatorships on a carousel.
5. What we need is an entirely new system of politics and though no deal could be a catalyst, there is actually a stronger chance that it won;t and they will fail to resolve any of the problems created by Brexit. That could then be the start of perpetual terminal decline.
6. There is just enough private sector competence to keep the essentials running but beyond that, the UK could very easily become a dysfunctional corrupt kleptocracy much the same as Spain or Italy. I know we are halfway there but this could push it over the edge.
7. As you know I have no problem with Brexit; I don't want a supreme European government - but we still need deep technical cooperation with the EU because that is how the world now works. Our prosperity depends on viable cooperation with out neighbours.
8. Should we take the no deal route and implode politically, then we are looking at a total collapse of good governance never seen before in a rich Western country. And that could get very expensive and very ugly - very rapidly.
