David Davis has as good as conceded (in politician speak) that Britain will get no trade deal with the EU in the 2 years for negotiations. Now Philip Hammond has set up the ultimate in crowdfunding with a 60bn war chest of taxpayers’ money to shore up a catastrophic Brexit. And Theresa May is adamant that there will be no real parliamentary say in the ‘deal’ that is negotiated. She wants her Brexit locked down and irreversible, however bad it turns out.
Not looking too good for Brexit and A50 hasn’t even been triggered yet.
The last moment of triumphant glory for Theresa May and the Brexiteers will be when she brandishes her A50 letter, quite possibly at the meeting of the European Council next month in Brussels. It will no doubt be accompanied by a “will of the British people to leave the European Union, but we’re not leaving Europe, and we want to be friends with you, even if we won’t be contributing any longer” speech.
And from that moment onwards it’s a downhill trajectory for Brexit. Are people now getting worried about Brexit?
