    No deal brexit removed from table ?, no, what should be removed are two other things, a second referendum or remain. We voted leave, no ifs or buts and no second chances.
    We were told the vote would be final. History has been re written by some who constantly say we didn't vote to leave without a deal, that lie has been repeated daily so many people actually believe it as true. The talk of deals was only brought up soon AFTER we voted leave, so not a valid arguement. The proof of that can still be seen in old video clips if a few hours of revision can be spared.
    Maybe we will temporaraly be a little worse off after a no deal Brexit, but it will be a price worth paying as there are much bigger issues at stake if we stay in. That is the trouble with mainstream media, this is not mentioned as they only support a remain agenda.

    Europhiles - you’ve had three years and you’ve chosen not to negotiate in good faith. If the thing is a mess the EU and the UK Europhile traitors are to blame - no one else. The people voted and we’re out on 31/10/19. We’ve been lied to and deceived for three years. That’s not going to happen again. Scum will face treason trials! The EU will fail when we leave. BBC are part of the EU clan so the interviewer has no credibility! Who is going to pay the parasite states when British taxpayers money dries up for the EU ?

    No surprise the EU is worried: it would have the 'infamy' of 'No deal' around its neck and must be fearful at the ensuing EU wide consequences of having acted imperiously by violating its treaty commitments to 'democracy' and 'human dignity'.

    The translator's word for Fantasia (immagination) was quite correct, not the interviewer's (fantasy). Mr Sassoli's position is quite clear - if Mr Johnson's proposal is acceptable then it will be accepted

    Please leave, You never should have joined. If you think brexit is over in the UK, it is not. It will linger on for years to come. UK needs healing. The EU Will manage. Get real! ”Splendid Isolation” and etonians running the country and mocking ”the elites”. BJ youtubing, Trump tweetning. What has happened to the anglosaxon world? Gone mad?

    I am worried the UK will see the number of migrants drop to only 50.000 instead of 600.000 a year. That is not good, because the UK needs more diversity in the smaller villages. Besides that, where can the other 550.000 go? Germany has had its share already. France can’t handle more poverty in the suburbs. Italy is a Catholic country, so it is not compatible with radical religions. The UK is familiar with all sorts of religion.

    'huge social and economic repercussions' for the EU! For one, BMW will not be impressed by the loss of a huge market! we have a 95 billion deficit with the EU - who will they sell all these goods to? Trump is already talking about increasing tariffs on goods from the EU. Hopefully, if we leave, this will lead to a rebellion by the countries who have been sold down the river by the EU refusing to make a reasonable trade deal with the UK

    Before 1973 England traded with the commonwealth and other global partners . Why would the UK think they couldn’t do it now? The 31st of October 2019 could be a great day for the UK if they leave Europe, it would mean the end of Europe as we see it now.

    No deal will be a disaster but not for us but for them £ is what they want and what they need. Listen to this woman hinting that Boris will break the law. He has never said he will break the law only the remain liars have said that, check it out, he has never said it but the BBC would have you think he has.. bloody liars.

    These so called brexit deals should be dealt with in a manner as if we had left.
    These deals should be easy.

  • Stephen Conway

    Let's get this right. Even Boris Government has calculated that Red tape bill for EU-UK trade in no-deal Brexit will be £15 billion annually. Being inside the EU was an investment. It cost about the same as that extra red tape, and yet gave access to 759 trade/trading deals to the world. Now let's accept the figures. It is about no money saved and about losing so much access to trade freely around the globe.

    Leave voters you were duped.

    The BBC is involved in a human rights crime.Either it's allowing in the north west of England autosuggestions on television or Its using scripted manufactured artificial schizophrenia messages given to a Northern rail employee,by access and frequencies used without consent.To give a BBC person their voices added to the manufactured artificial schizophrenia device and used to give a Northern employee schizophrenia.
    If you think that's bad the NHS collaborate and in 2008 antipsychotic medication prescribed and schizophrenia messages given by this technique to inform the victim of the side effects.Side effects that have seen 6 billion dollars awarded to a patient.The doctors did not tell a patient of the side effects.In the UK the victim of this human rights crime told to his face before prescribed Risperidone " you can't prove it" in 2007 in a secure unit were those behind this expect a blow up from the victim.Did not get that so they chose to continue to this day to prescribe and hide to shield the human rights criminals in psychology and psychiatry and television industry.
    The hide because to end it is to face court.They want to use manufactured artificial schizophrenia messages to tell their victim whose life they have stolen inflicted psychological torture coercive control with hypnotic suggestions and civil that it's a joke.Fathers and mothers their children trying to tell the man whose life they wrecked they ruined they destroyed their play thing that it's a joke.This is real not a fabrication or made up but a revolting inhuman human exploitation and torture practice.
    If they think it's a joke,in court they can justify it and win.Passively the victim even in 2007 in that secure unit and every day thinks one thing.When will it end is today the day it ends?Then he leaves his rapists.Unforgivable evil people.

    The simple truth ! and the reason why the media is so bias is the EU is good for Champagne Socialists and Liberal Elites , but for the working man&women its bad as they get shafted by cheap labour and mass immigration , which in turn makes it difficult for them to earn a living .

    Out of 28 countires of which today includes the UK.....within the EU. The UK economy is the size of approx 17/18 of these 28, of which means 17/18 member states leaving at the same TIME!!!! So you can imagine they are really bricking themselves NOW!!! They at last have come to realise that and will negotiate, you wait and see and if thet don't we leave and good luck to the reamining 27 states!!!!

    Of course Boris is not serious. He absolutely wants to leave the EU with no deal. The only ones who would benefit are British and multinational corporations, i.e. those who are represented by the current prime minister.
    If Boris goes ahead, thereby breaking the law, he must immediately be arrested and removed from office.
    If the rule of law is compromised, fascism won't be far.

    Ironic, the interviewer said boris is breaking the law due to brexit...17.4million voted to leave and that is a law. Boris is obeying the law, its the EU, UK parliament, UK courts and the anti-brexit groups who are violating the will of the majority.

    From listening here , it appears that any attempt to create a deal presents a danger to the EU , whatever proposals reasonable , potentially workable on not . I believe that whatever Boris Johnson suggests with the greatest sincerity will be turned down out of hand by the EU . They are justified in expecting Britain to leave without a deal . Britain should have left without a deal 3 years ago . Mrs May completely ruined everything by trying to compromise in EUs favour .

    The British government over the. Last. 30 years has lied to the Brits we were taken into the EU illegally when Maastricht was signed and we have been lied to by the EU also because we weren't told anything about a closer political union
    So the Brits have had enough the only way forwards is no deal brexit then negotiate a free trade deal as we were originally told we had got in 1973 with the EEC the fact that the European leaders has lied to us about this whole thing is now at the European leaders detriment we are leaving with or without a deal. I personally favour a no deal brexit!

    Truth is, they are trying to keep the UK in the EU. No respect for democracy, they are a tyrannical political construct that needs to go. Each country in the EU is fantastic, but the EU is strangling them. It's all about power for a few inside operatives and their elite masters. The UK must get out now.
