    EU has negotiated a Boris deal as they did a May deal however as both Boris and May deals will/would not get through HoC without major amendments then I don't see it being ratified in the end. Then there's the DUP to be convinced that this is acceptable ! let's see you do that

    So, every members state should get the same deal, this is corruption at its best, UK should just get kicked out and that's it

    Snowden and Assange are gd Heros people they exposed corruption and should be freed with a taxpayers home for themselves and the admiration of the people and full pardons with purple 💕 hung around their necks for disobeying an order that went against the constitution and peoples rights. Since when was it ever made a law to expose crimes? Murders get better attention from the press than a hero of our people from an American free thinking person to the world

    One thought... This is ongoing for 3 years or so. What is the big deal about Brexit? Who cares really? Stay in EU , or not, but make up your mind.

    The two big issues confronting the UK: 1. collecting customs duties and tariffs via an efficient computerized mechanism of payments and accounts monitoring, and 2. safeguards at the customs gateway at the border of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Both require compliance with EU protocols. Moreover, the UK government civil service must adjust and align their monitoring standards and systems to allow for on-time reporting to the EU and all concerned.

    The venom of socialist EU and the minions of George Sorros are sapping the strength of UK. I hope PM Boris Johnson can act well on the DEAL Agreements. The MPs in the House of Commons of all stripes must support Boris for a viable UK economy in the post-Brexit based on the principle of comparative and equitable advantage of the island state of UK.

  • Inka graphisme et impression

    Seen from Belgium, the EU has negotiated more with opposition MPs than with Mr Johnson. The EU seems very confident that the opposition will ask for a referendum on whether or not the people accept the agreement reached.
    And if the media scared the British as they scared the Europeans who spend too much time in front of their television, it is a foregone conclusion for the EU...

      There can be no EU exit until the primary treaties the legal links that bind the UK to the EU are unshackled. This is another scam to fool the plebs, and they should be angry. VERY ANGRY.

      @DZ Ddteo I have heard him talk a lot in English when there was less at stake so I don't think that's the reason.
      It *was* the reason why Sylvie Goulard spoke nothing but French during her two hearings in the European Parliament, except for a few symbolic (and prepared) sentences in English and German. Her German is excellent, btw. Her English is not, but it wasn't worse than that of several other commissioners-designate.
      That arrogance alone was reason enough to vote against her, in my opinion.

    • Peter Lund
      Peter Lund Month ago +1

      Barnier's English is fine. He is speaking in French and using an interpreter to make sure he doesn't make a mistake. If anything goes wrong, it'll be the fault of the interpreter (and nobody will care much). If *he* made a mistake, it could have serious consequences.
      (And waiting for the translation into French also buys him a little more time before he has to answer.)

      Because English and French are the recognised diplomatic languages , the French made sure of that in 1945 , that’s why the podium bares both
