"and everything will be lovely..."
More bad news from the front on this one
A 3% plus leap in inflation has guaranteed a rise in prices and a drop in the standard of living
Irish Banks have presented a report showing the adverse effect Brexit is having on Trade with other countries
What with this and the border issue, Britain is rapidly becoming the bad neighbour of Europe
Maybe thman who wrote, "Good walls make good neighbours", had it about right!
"A mere 1% majority is all they need."
Ten years ago it was 90+% - a pretty fair assesment of how things are moving
If it had moved faster, there wouldn't have been the need for so many body bags.
It is an armed and aggressively sectarian group that has kept the Six Counties intact with laws, economic repression, unfair voting systems and triumphalist threatening marches

That's interesting, Keith. I am being serious here - no point scoring agenda.

There are a few reasons why we might be making concessions that I can think of.

The most positive I can think from a Brexit viewpoint is that they do not think it over important, because all that matters is the final agreement - anything you say on the way is bye-the-bye. That is basically the "Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed" line. All that mattered at this stage was opening the lock to the important bit.

The second reason might be that we have poor negotiators. That is pretty bad, as if they are poor at this stage they are likely to be poor at the next.

The third reason could be that the UK hand is much weaker than they are letting the public know. That would also be dreadful, because it means they are not as confident of the 'no deal' benefits as they claim. Otherwise, why concede anything?

Are there any other explanations that occur to you?

How about more like having to come to terms with what was a bad idea in the fist place?
Nobody has actually put up barriers to Brexit - they problems are ones the Brexiters they chose to face.
It's their/your job to overcome them.
The problems we are discussing here are those that have spilled over into countries like Ireland who are not part of this Exodus
Because Britain is still clinging onto that country as a legacy of Empire, it makes it a British problem.
The main cock-ups have arisen from sheer stupidity and incompetence
We could have predicted that 'Er Upstairs' would have deliberately thrown away a majority
Who would have believed that a moron like Boris Johnson would ever become foreign Secretary - I look forward with some anticipation to when he actually has to do somethingI have no doubt that, like everything else, nothing is the fault of the Establishment - it's all down to somebody else (you've already blamed the EU and Ireland for the border fuck up

Not so, Nigel.

Which seems to be the EU statement since I made my post. It also explains why Davis seems to have reversed yesterdays declarations.

"You have got none of that right."
"He was, however, present on the afternoon of 5 December, when Lloyd George gave the Irish delegates a powerful ultimatum. They must sign the treaty in its existing form - including the provisos for partition and allegiance to the Crown - or else quit and face a new war. After a few hours? consideration they agreed to sign, accepting the deal as the best available in the circumstances, and did so in the early hours of the next day."


Jim, as has been pointed out before, there would be no "New war". What was threatened was resumption of the existing war which was on hold. As The Irish National archives makes clear:
4 December
Discussion by both sides of the written Irish counter proposals.


5 December
A meeting is held between Lloyd George and Collins which discusses the proposed boundary commission in more detail.


6 December
An ultimatum is delivered by Lloyd George to the delegates in which they are faced with the option of either signing the text of the Treaty as it stands or refusing to sign and face the consequence of an immediate
resumption of war.


The 'Articles of Agreement for a Treaty Between Great Britain and Ireland' are signed by both delegations at 2.15am.


8 December
De Valera issues a public statement that he cannot recommend acceptance of the Treaty. The Cabinet decides by 4 votes to 3 to recommend the Treaty to the Dail on 14 December.

It just isn't really going to happen unless as a good old british compromise that pleases no-one or annoys anyone much (apart from the far-right lunatic fringe who are always annoyed) The other - more british and more likely result is that we will all lose interest and quietly drop the idea as it's way more complicated than we thought. (we all have a PC but how many of us can use all the functions?) And despite recent events we are quite a polite lot really and would feel embarrassed to think we had put our neighbours out. like any family, there are a few shouty drunks but british common sense and laziness should stop any extreme madness. hopefully.

Perhaps a worked example would make that clearer. Suppose a bill has clauses a, b and c.

Bill is so opposed to clause a that he will be vote against the bill, but likes b and c.
Ben likes clauses a and c, but b is a no-go
Little weed likes a and b, but will vote against because of c.

So in this situation each of a, b and c has a 2/3 majority but everyone votes down the bill.


That is the risk we are taking.

Time for a new topic: amendment 7

This, as I expect you all know, is to incorporate a "meaningful vote" on Brexit into the withdrawal bill. I am in two minds about it. As a matter of principle, Parliament should vote on whether the negotiated teams are acceptable. But I fear it will merely introduce uncertainty and make a hard Brexit more likely. It is to be expected that most people will dislike the deal for some reason - exit bill too high, not enough protection for workers, transition period too long or too short, of whatever. So thiis risks all those who have any objection at all into a single 'no' but giving no indication of what needs to be changed to get a 'yes'. (We have had this effect before when Blair attempted to reform the house of Lords. There was a majority for reducing the numbers but not for any specific amount so all the votes failed.)

So we could well end up rejecting the deal even though the majority agree with any one bit of it. This makes it crucial whether the effect of a 'no' votes is to crash to WTO rules, to cancel Brexit or to try for another deal. Which may or may not also have to go before Parliament.
