    Why would fishing boats from Europe want to sail all the way to the coastline of Canada across the Atlantic?


    You're 100% right in that we don't have to accept their demands, that just means that we don't have to trade with them which will be painful for us. Despite what Farage, Rees-Mogg and Johnson told you back in 2016, they don't need us more than we need them. Most of the countries don't really care for trade with the UK, the likes of Croatia and Hungary have very little trade with the UK.

    The problem is, when two countries/organisations negotiate, the country/organisation with more power and things to offer can make higher demands. It's why the EU has been successful in trade deals with Japan, USA, China etc. South America are starting to create such a trading block as well.

    The UK alone has very little negotiating power in comparison to USA and the EU. It's why we got a poor trade deal with Japan recently, a worse trade deal than what we had while we were within the EU.

    Heard from a good source that the Tories are waiting to see who wins the US election before deciding to go for no deal or a very thin deal with the EU.

    Biden is not keen on a major free trade agreement with the UK, partly because he doesn't trust who we have in power, so if he wins we will try and get some kind of 'deal' with the EU. Trump wins we go no deal as we will sign away the country to the US.

    So Trump isn't just fighting for the US presidency, he's also battling to become the Lord almighty of the United Kingdom of the United States?

    No wonder he got his vote in early

    talk of an intial bump in the cost of goods of up to 30% if we have a no deal Brexit.

    On the downside that'll be horrendous for most people who are trying to make ends meet.

    On the plus side all those wonderful "non elites" that won't be affected by the new EU laws on taxation that were the backbone of the Leave campaign in the first place won't even notice the difference because they're so rich.

    God we're lucky to be leaving, these sunny uplands are just too good to believe.

    We are so lucky that we stuck it to the elites so we can spend more on food but less on luxury cars. That'll show them!

    good for the environment. then only the rich can drive and the working class know their place.

    First step is fully re-establish the class system

    Second step is utopia.

    Honestly the utopia is real, it's all sunny uplands coming, the fact we won't be able to afford flights or cars or food doesn't matter because the sun will always be shining on Great Britain, or at least on Great England and Wales, but Scotland and Northern Ireland leaving won't matter because we'll be able to enjoy even more of the brilliant perks like a county full of car parks and not have to share them with minor nations that just attach themselves to our greatness anymore.

    God we're lucky to have such a successful government and such a brilliant future ahead.

    Who'd have thought that a trading block of multiple countries would have stronger position than just one little country?

    Well everyone with a brain, but our leaders are so arrogantly stupid they think the 'Great' in Great Britain actually means something these days.

    Effing around with a no deal Brexit on top of the economic pressures of covid, sounds like 'great' management and planning that, I am sure the ordinary people of the UK are going to benefit massively.

    Just seen that Canada is ready to sign a deal with The UK before the end of the year with no tariffs,Trudeau says it will be an easy transition as talks have been ongoing for a while now. :)
