The Brexit negotiations must conclude by the end of June, the Brexit panic has yet to set in.

The UK is staring down the barrel of its own gun.

The EU are just waiting for us to pull the trigger.

They won’t flinch.
The EU isn’t in a panic, they don’t need us, they’ve already decided to endure some minor economic fall out, to bridge the EU budget gap, to continue to integrate, to reduce barriers further.

They want us to stay but not at any price, if we want so called liberty then off we go.
We don’t hold many cards, almost none, we can’t sit across the negotiating table like an enraged BXP moron and expect to be taken seriously.

EU citizens aren’t out rioting on our behalf, they’re simply amazed at our stupidity.
The end game is drawing closer, it’s up to the UK to provide the Brexit blue print but as we don’t have a workable solution the EU will sit opposite us and provide one or other suicide note and just wait for us to sign it.

We’ve not really left yet, still time to put a final plan to a vote, still time to #revokearticle50 but as that would mean national humiliation we’ll opt for a more damaging but equally humiliating climb down or a suicidal deal before rejoining in years to come.
I’ve concluded that we’ll eventually commit economic suicide.

Happy days!
When the dust settles and our error becomes apparent the way back might not be so simple. When we rejoin the EU Britain might well be a bit player, the united economies of the Eastern Bloc will be net contributors to the EU and they will hold our future in their hands.
Little England is precisely that, no EU nation thinks that they can be king of the castle, no one nation can dominate the others, it’s true that Germany holds sway but does so with the lightest touch possible. The real driver is still the 4 freedoms.
Few Brits can quote let alone know about the 4 freedoms, the level of ignorance is widespread, the Brexit solutions offered are void of how to deal with the unintended consequences.

I’m not bothered myself, I can survive Brexit but it’s victims will be stranded.
