Err Wrong. What the graphics show is NOT no deal, it clearly shows a big green check-mark under Canada and South Korea. The Canada Plus model was something David Davis proposed from day one and what Donald Tusk _agreed to_ and confirmed was achievable *2 years ago!* and this is further confirmed by this EU slide with a check mark under Canada. It was Theresa May who went around that, forced David Davis to resign, and eventually come up with an abomination of a "withdrawal agreement" that doesn't even have a trade deal in it. Whether it was through sheer incompetence or deliberate sabotage on the part of May (and Hammond) is for each person to decide for themselves.

The winning vote for leave means leave in totality, NO DEAL
Dr Peter jones
This was started some twenty years ago with the failure of the government to hold a referendum on the European communities act and the Lisbon treaty which we now know no longer binds the the UK. The failure of the two party state system in many countries has collapsed. The resistance of the political classes has seen the wide abyss between voters and national governments across Europe as the EU commission wanted to speed up the creation of the EU super state by the un elected against the peoples across Europe. A radical political realignment is happening across Europe and the world. The UK has voted several times to realign to its people and not the collapsing EU. To be clear any detailed political settlement was out of question from the start given the last twenty years of bad relations with the EU and abyss in political ideology. What we have seen under this far right government is a total disbelief that the gravy train for a few wont go on. The logical political solution is to leave without a deal.The logical economic solution is to leave on a canada plus and swiss style deals already to be signed as deals on the table. No trade agreement after three years is simply the result of different political ideology which wont change. It may take twenty years to negotiate any political deal with what might of might not be a new Europe after its collapse. Remember the UK is a net contributor to Europe which is heavily in debt and is asking the UK to bail it out with over 100 billion liability. Its your project EU, you pay for it,its no longer a debt burden to the poor,elderly or disabled in the UK.

This has nothing to do with your point in the video, but it's wrong to say you can "live" in Norway as long as you are an EU member. Norway is in the Schengen area as many EU nations are. And other Schengen members can go to Norway and cross the border freely. You can then STAY in Norway for 180 days over a 365 day period, but only 90 days at a time. And you must have a reason to stay in Norway; the most typical reason is work. A lot of polish and lithuanian people do this. They work 3 months in Norway, go back to their country for 3 months, then go to Norway and work 3 more months, then back to their country for 3 months again. Then repeats this. This is because they earn much much more in Norway. No, you can't just go buy a cabin and LIVE in Norway for as long as you want if you're in the EU. You can STAY a while though.

It's like a personal relationship. The U.K. has decided that the relationship isn't worth all the hassle and cost-or at least the perceived hassle and cost-but still wants certain "privileges." The U.K. doesn't want to be with the E.U. with all its strings but wants some relationship that gives them all the benefits of membership/coupling and as few of the responsibilities as possible that are inherent to such liaisons. To put it bluntly, dirty dog that the U.K. is, they want to be Fuck Buddies with the E.U. The U.K. wants NO cohabitation, (Free movement, sharing regulatory autonomy, legal jurisdictions), NO sharing the bills, (Financial Contributions to the E.U.), NO sharing of chores, (That's a joke, guys NEVER help with the chores.), etc. They just want to be able to call up the E.U. and have the E.U. come running for a Booty Call, (Favourable Trade and leveraged trade negotiations with weaker outside entities.), whenever the U.K. needs them. The E.U. is angry that the U.K. has said she's not worth the trouble and is not in the mood to be the U.K.'s side piece, satisfying the U.K.'s wants and being kicked out of bed, (The U.K.), after the slap and tickle is over. Quite frankly, it looks like either there will just have to be an ugly breakup, the U.K. talking smack about what the E.U. used to do for them in the boudoir (Trade, of course-give it to me, baby!), and the E.U. throwing all of the U.K.'s belongings on the street with the rest of the trash, permanently separated OR they will grudgingly agree to try again in some awful compromise that'll satisfy neither party because the U.K. will still believe they are giving too much-and still won't help with the chores!-and, let's face it, the E.U. will never forget or forgive being spurned. As I say, like a personal relationship. :D

I think that what Brexiters want is basically leave the EU, but with a Free Trade Agreement. The problem is that Germany wants to basically make the UK its bitch by basically letting her leave but still having a big say on her policies or no deal. So at the end of the day Germany (and outher countries too) want to keep control over the UK, while the UK all wants is a simple FTA, they wouldn’t like to grant. We want to UK look foolish here, but tbh the EU wants to make it as hard and as humiliating as they can.

UK MP's fighting to remain in the EU are traitors to the will of the people. Democracy is being destroyed and the validity of Parliament is being trashed. The people voted to leave and that was supposed to happen on the 29th March, deal or no deal if that doesn't happen The group of people calling themselves the representatives of the people are liars and engaged in coup against the British people. The people don't care about a deal, the priority is to get out as agreed years ago. Nobody believes that it takes 3 years to leave. We simply leave as agreed 29th March, if we don't...
Herr Schmidt
Herr Schmidt 2 days ago
+The Sun King Well, the truth is: you don't know what the people wanted as they were never asked in the light of the alternatives. So whether you want to hear it or not, fact is that there is no clear mandate for anything. Also the fundamental principle of a representative democracy is to elect people who decide. It is a basic concept. "You think 17.4 million people are going to say, "Hey, this group of people hijacked the result of our democratic vote and have bound us into the EU dictatorship by fraud against our will, but that's OK." As many people can say the exact opposite. That is the problem with not know what the people wanted. You want them very much to want what you wanted. But that simply isn't the case as that was not the question. If you were interested in a result based on direct democracy, you would ask for a second referendum, which allows to make a decision between the available options and not just between reality and some fairy tale. But I guess you are well aware that once the fairy tale option is off the table, the will of the people isn't remotely what you claim it to be.
The Sun King
The Sun King 2 days ago
+Herr Schmidt Clearly you're a remainer, a pro European. In the UK when the people are asked to vote, the winner is the one with the highest number of votes, in this case that was to leave the EU. We call that Democracy and the group of people calling themselves Government are bound to honour that because in this Democracy that is "The will if the people" so do tell me I don't know the will of the people or they don't, or the people don't. That's the fundamental basics of this Democracy and if this group of people ignore that then they are spitting on the democratic votes cast, installing a dictatorship now against the will of the people and demolishing any further need for Parliament. Why would we the people need this group of cheats if they will not comply with the a properly established democratic vote to leave. They will never be trusted again if they do that and the entire system of British Government will be demolished. You think 17.4 million people are going to say, "Hey, this group of people hijacked the result of our democratic vote and have bound us into the EU dictatorship by fraud against our will, but that's OK." I don't think so. They are our servants unlike the EU where the unelected leadership are your masters. No the British people will not simply say that's ok, of that you can be sure. Twice our forefathers laid down their lives on European soil. We will not be enslaved by a group of out of control, self motivated, egotistical, self rightious politicians.

​+The Sun King " if the government refuse to carry out the democratic will of the people" But that is where your argumentation fails. You don't know the will of the people. Neither do they. They do however know their obligation not to destroy the UK's economy with an unregulated brexit. Which means they are one step ahead of you when it comes to serving the UK.

+Herr Schmidt The entry into the EEC under PM Heath was treason and Heath new it. The signing of the Lisbon Treaty by the Queen, was treason and efectivly her abdication as monarch. The people created government and a democracy is supposedly governance by the people through their elected representatives therefore if the government refuse to carry out the democratic will of the people who created their office, thet commit treason against the democratic people they represent, and that destroys the very need for Parliament. If the people's representatives ignore the result of what was a properly conducted free vote by the people they cannot be trusted further as that is rge a political coup by a small group of people against the will of the democratic majority. First past the post has always been at the heart of this so called democracy. If the will if the majority has no more validity anarchy will follow probably leading to a dictatorship if that has not already happened. Read the 1911 Parliament Act. The Prime Minister has absolute authority to do anything she likes under any act once enacted. Technically May has full authority to leave on the 29th as the people willed or not and go down in history as the woman who destroyed British democracy.
Herr Schmidt
Herr Schmidt 2 days ago
There is no "will of the people" as the referendum was not about remaining or leaving with no deal. Also read up on the mechanisms of representative democracy - it is not undemocratic to keep the uninformed from making a decision. In fact the attempt to put it on the people to catch up on a topic, nobody working full time could ever fully learn about in their free time, in the shape of that referendum was undemocratic in this sense.

If UK wants to keep full access to the largest economy in the world (the EU) and also have a say on regulations etc. there is an easy solution: just stay in. All other options just create more problems for UK incl. a real chance of losing Northern Ireland, Scotland and Gibraltar, because they all want to stay in EU.

Oh yes. Let's completely bypass the sectarian peace treaty of Northern Ireland and the fact that the DUP are influencing deal refusals so as to force a "no deal" in order to unhook Northern Ireland from the peace treaty protected by the EU and claim 100% DUP-Westminster rule for NI. Usurping power by rejecting all EU deals that protect the Peace Treaty and Power-Sharing Governance of NI. While simultaneously rejecting the democratic vote by NI population (Unionist + Republican) to remain in the EU. The DUP are PUD - persistent underminers of democracy.

Greece would default and nobody would help them.

Italy and Spain most likely would break apart due to regional conflicts. Then again that is nothing which stopped the UK, so maybe someone could be stupid enough to make this decision. Hungary is on the receiving side. They jumped through many hoops just in order to get the sweet sweet benefits from mother europa's breast.

The vast majoirty of the 17.4milliom who voted leave wanted a "no-deal" brexit or WTO brexit, we are one of the largest exporters with the EU and second biggest financial contributer. The EU will come to is us to trade when we leave on WTO terms. The reason BREXIT is such a cluster fuck is the polictal class doesn't want to carry out the instruction of the people they govern.
Herr Schmidt

+uk m'dear Because remain does not include eg. the swiss model, so the swiss model must mean leave. So it is impossible to know who voted leave for the swiss option and who for no-deal. But it goes a step further: we cannot even know whether all remainers had picked remain, had there been a swiss option for leave. So, this looking clear to you is just a sign of the dunning kruger effect.

They say that history is in the headlines. So why BREXIT? Because: One war in the ME is enough. It seems as if there are forces behind Trump, which are setting the stage for another war here... Here are the signs for war: 1) North Korea: make peace, in order to free forces and avoid 'bandwagon effect' (Kim allying with Moscow, via the common border) 2) UN: disgrace the UN with a smear campaign (neutral observer, as opposed to...ahem..."embedded journalists") 3) set up Riyad as a US lapdog, to carry out a 'false flag' in the Gulf (read, I mean really READ the headlines) 4) EU: chisel away at the unity of the EU, already with good results in Poland and GB (Brexit as "divide and rule" tool, for a two front war scenario for Russia, and lighting rods for Russian nukes) 5) Palestinian /Israeli conflict: get Saudi Arabia to "sign away" (sacrifice) the Palestinian cause (free the back of this "smiling prince" aka Washington's lapdog, to attack Iran) Remember what Putin said. "You shall not pass". My advice, unless we wish to argue about "who started it" on clay tablets in the near future, is to heed that warning...

Brexit: Like leaving your wife, only she won't let you out of the house... "Misery" style. Then, when you do manage to get half way out and demand your clothes, you are told "No!", if you want to leave, leave with nothing. ...But hold on a minute, when we 1st met we didn't get on well, but then I ended up saving your life.. twice!

+Herr Schmidt It should be fun. :) Ad yes, I agree with you, it has a lot to do with a lot of spineless MPs in the UK and right across the EU. Power corrupts after all. Survival hasn't changed to be honest, it was never great to begin with, at least not in the UK (unless you're a London Banker ofc). Let's hope there is a nice, clean exit followed by a purge of the Government and lastly the removal of the House of Lords here in the UK. I'm sure we'll then find another target for our hatred, but until then... Auf Wiedersehen! :)
Herr Schmidt
Herr Schmidt 2 days ago
+Sir Snowy The simple fact that you talk about survival as if that had ever been a problem shows how much the UK has shot itself into the foot. You are aware that the refugee crisis to a great deal was caused by the UK's intervention in Iraq and Libya? But, yes, I guess the ability to duck away from your responsibility must be an attractive reason, I can buy that. It is spineless but makes sense. A lot of regulation for consumer protection were done by the EU because single nations lack the power to stand up against their industries. Same goes for the fight against tax fraud and establishing reasonable wages - no nation can do either on its own. So that "reason" just shows how little attention you have paid. The EU court does not tell you what to do, it rules according to law which has been ratified by your country (ironically a lot of them brought in by the UK itself). The whole whining about the evil EU law just stems from your own spineless politicians who don't want to take the responsibility for something they agreed to. Let's see what their excuse will be in future when after the last few decades they can't hide behind brussels anymore and you finally have to take responsibility for some of your actions. Good luck.

+Herr Schmidt Maybe so, but we'll survive. Vikings, Saxons, Normans, Nazis, EU, and yet the world still turns. Will life be harder? No one knows. There has been that many scare tactics and lies told by both sides, that it no longer matters. Better being less worse off (maybe) than being under the rule of a foreign body of fools that have wreaked their own nations by opening the flood gates OR worse still, by having a outcome like what happened in NZ. But no, they push each others buttons as those in power sit back and watch, then once it explodes (like you said) someone else will be to blame. I'm glad I voted Leave, why? Why did I even do it? 3 reasons sold it for me, I saw the mess the rest of Europe is in with camps and refG boats etc., secondly, they have done nothing for me, not one thing have a seen from the great EU, it's all take, take, take. Lastly, why have unelected foreigners telling me what I can & can't do, for example, the EU courts. No thanks! Starting to sound like the Life of Brian now... what has the EU ever done for us? ;) You have a nice day, it was a lovely chat, but alas you can't change my mind, I'm ready to defend my homeland.

The problem is not the change. The problem is that is comes without any preparation or a realistic expectation where it will lead. It is already clear that the UK will blame all their faults on the EU even after leaving. The anti-european sentiment will just get stronger.

The UK is more like a relationship with a MARRIED couple (there is a uncodified constitution with the Queen overseeing said union at the wedding). The husband and the wife have a clear agreement to leave the province in the UK to another. The wife wanted to 'remain' and has chosen to backtrack on the agreement and wants to find a way to keep both homes without the additional expense there in. The husband realizes that taxes in the new province is higher, however going back to maintain the old house simultaneously is costly, and besides that, he hated it because the old house was a shared house that contained 10 other families in it, and so he had enough of sharing a house!

Well, in fact the key issue for the UK is maintaining somehow a free goods and people movement between Rep. of Ireland and Northern Irealand, which can be easily done upon the article 24th of the WTO Treaty. The EU doeasn't want to make it so easy, so they're menacing the uK by establishing the border and customs posts on the Irish border. In fact UK is a huge financial contributor to the EU and they want to keep it that way as long as possible.

The anger of many viewers is understandable, despite efforts of this very good video trying to bring clarity in. A bit of facts and history may further help in the understanding: UK applied for membership since 1961 being initially opposed by France . After applying again the UK got its membership in 1973. Pure free will. Nobody forced the UK to do it. From “The poor man of Europe” of the 70’s, UK managed to take advantage of EU’s membership turning into 2nd largest economy of the block and the fasted growing in recent history. Well, the UK did not manage well many processes, allowing for deindustrialization in many sectors which lead to increased powerty and highest levels of inequality in the EU besides creation of wealth and significant fortunes. But this was own making. This was not decided in Brussels. Then new right wing politicians like Farage took the dissatisfaction as an opportunity starting to blame the “Eurocrats in Brussels” and leading a push in favor of crashing out of the block. Farage repeated so many time his mantra of “taking back control and sovereignty” that it started to be assumed as real by ignorant people and reinforced by interested politicians like those of the ERG. Not clear if chicken or egg, this push started to be (or already was) supported by Russian forces, American forces, British and international capitalists (aiming at buying destroyed companies to sell them later) so that during the referendum, with the aid of well paid Cambridge Analytica, forces working against the UK managed to get 51,5% of the votes. Although this result was a clear indication of a profoundly divided country, it was turned into “the democratic will of the people” and repeatedly used as an argument to dampen that this result was an clear expression of a deep and lasting division. Politicians of both sides of the interests never discussed about the truth with their constituents (as the video above correctly tries to make), they just wanted to herd their herds on basis of patter and mantras, even because the underlying truth (also that of the video) was never easy to understand. Still today after almost three years there is no clear understanding. And without clarity about the underlying truth, it is difficult to get politicians aligned. And they don't want it. All they want is taking advantage, regardless their side. There are no good people here. However, Britain has many experts who could have helped to come to terms with Brexit, like Sir Ivan Rogers who was fried by T. May until resignation. But you have also leavers like Dr. Richard North of the Leave alliance, columnist Booker and many others. But they all were eliminated of the decision circuit as professional politicians want to exclusively hold control of the process in their own interest. Never believe in fairy tales nor easy to swallow political mantras! Think with the brain, not with the liver! Turn to real experts who really know what they are talking about.

Eu: are you leaving? Uk: yes but no
1chish 5 days ago
You left out the key aspect - A Free Trade Deal with the EU and the UK. Its what the EU has done with Canada, Japan and South Korea and they were all nowhere near as aligned as the UK currently is. What you also didn't explain is WHY the UK established its red lines / deal breakers. The vote was for return of UK Sovereignty and all that entails. Its what every country outside the EU enjoys. Canada or Japan don't subsume lawmaking to Brussels or judicial oversight to the ECJ or have to allow millions of EU citizens into their lands so why should anyone else? There is this preconception created by two decades of EU propaganda that the EU is never wrong and the UK therefore must be. We are not. We were never asked if we wanted to join the EU and when we were asked 24 years later we said 'No Thanks'. Really simple. (And yes I do know we (me included) voted to remain in the then EEC in '75) It is the EU that created the sequential negotiations (contrary to Article 50) where money had to be agreed before citizens rights and with very little effort put into the future relationship. We cannot even agree a trade deal with the EU until AFTER we leave! That is EU Law so not the UK's fault. But sadly we in the UK are in the grip of a Remain minded Parliament that is doing all it can to defy the electorate that a) voted to leave and then b) voted those same MPs into power on manifestos that promised to deliver Brexit. It is a constitutional crisis by any measure and as the PM said yesterday it is now the people vs Parliament and I know who will win.

+Sharif Ela The EU was an unnecessary creation by the political class for their own ends. Almost like a solution looking for a problem. The ambition after WWII was to use mutual trade as the best means to secure peace in Europe after WWII. First we had the steel and coal deal under the Treaty of Paris in '51 which then became the EEC under the Treaty of Rome in '57. The UK joined the EEC and 8 other similar countries, I am very sure that had the EEC been left as it was and just added the 4 more countries they did none of this would have happened. The EEC gave us customs free borders, freedom of movement but it was about 30,000 a year in the UK and there was no subsuming of laws and courts to a foreign power. The EU has successfully undone much of the good work done by the EEC and created a political monstrosity that has to feed itself or die. Hopefully Brexit (if UK MPs have the balls) will be the first part of the starvation of the EU but that will be an added bonus to me. I just want my country back.

Well, maybe the UK should have looked at the cards on their hands before raising the stakes. Also the rules according to which the EU does not compromise were decided by an EU the UK was still part of. Those lines were known before the referendum. It is not the EU's fault that the people of the UK are stupid enough to get fooled by Johnson and Farage.

Those of us who read the treaties, knew this BEFORE the referendum, and when we voted Leave, this is EXACTLY what we want and Voted for, the ONLY option that is actually leaving. My questions are:- 1. HOW could anyone in Government NOT know this from Day1? 2. IF anyone did, WHY did they not make this very publicly known?

You are a small minority, though. Most people who voted to leave didn't know shit, except that some influential people told them that the EU is evil and they're better off without it. The government knew of the problem, didn't want to leave and expected the population to know and vote "remain", too. They lost that gamble. Basically, the government sees a river, wants to jump over it, but fails and lands face-first in the water. Now they're struggling to stay afloat. Meanwhile people who knew water is wet and wanted in the river anyway (you) say "should have built a boat", those who knew and didn't want in, say "shouldn't have jumped" and those who were clueless are just angry they're suddenly wet because nobody told them water is wet.

This is because the British public see leaving the E.U. is more problems that it is worth. Scotland is threatening to leave the UK and Northern Ireland is saying they want to leave as well. If for example, brexit, requires a breakup of the UK, that will be unacceptable. I don’t think any PM would want to be the prime minister who broke up the UK.

The EU is an awful bureaucratic oligarchy that the UK gets no benefit from beyond trade and it isn't worth being strong armed into joining the EU for anyway. Having said that, the fact that they can't exit the EU is entirely the UKs fault. It should've been done within a fortnight of the decision to trigger article 50 was made. Just a "we're out" mic drop hard brexit and done. Sort everything else out on the fly. The reason it hasn't been done is because the UK has spineless incompetent politicians that never thought that they'd ever be called on to actually govern the country. They thought the EU would continue to do that for them. The result of the referendum came as a complete shock to them and they've been blithering ever since.

A functional analysis of the EU reveals that the "core" of the EU is not actually full membership, but the Single Market. Why? Because by some kind of alchemy, people are smuggled into a free trade agreement as though they are the equivalent of goods, services and capital - i.e. in the concept of "Freedom of Movement," which creates a de facto European Citizenship in any nation that signs up to it, and that includes the EEA / EFTA.

23+alen40to The two economies, both larger than the UK's are in serious trouble. Germany is likely to slip into recession and France is expected to be overtaken by the UK shortly. The trade surplus will most certainly disappear once the UK is able to buy from the world under WTO terms, especially if the EU wishes to start a trade war by applying tariffs which the UK would no doubt respond to. The EU has everything to lose on this argument and you are deluding yourself if you think otherwise. Just in time can and is managed from shipment from around the world, including China. North Africa can supply perishables. Your head is in the sand if you think otherwise. So no, the EU loses this one and therefore it's not in it's interests to start a trade war. EU 0 UK 1. What the 27 countries need is not important. What Germany and France need, is. They need the UK's money as a net contributor to the EU. Without it, they will have to make up the shortfall. Disastrous for them and they know it, especially as both now have perilous economies. Here's that cuckoo clock for you and thanks for the good price you paid for it. EU 0 UK 2. A falling pound (and let's be honest, it's not dropping like a sack, that's a massive exaggeration and you know it), is good for the indigenous economy and will encourage home growth. Money remaining in the UK and job creation within the UK. EU 0 UK 3. The Irish border can be manned by electronic systems which already exist, look at Switzerland for example. This is a hollow point scoring argument, easily debunked. I'm shocked you would try and raise such a non argument which can be and is so easily dismissed. Dyson has increased their workforce in the UK recently and have moved their headquarters overseas. To Asia. Nothing to do with Brexit. Nissan and Panasonic moved because of a free trade deal signed between the EU and Japan, meaning they no longer need manufacture within the EU. Nothing to do with Brexit. A spokesman for JLR said the Slovakian plant had been developed over several years to manufacture the Land Rover Discovery and the latest move was, yep, you guessed it, nothing to do with Brexit. The remaining Sollihull plant is to be redeveloped to manufacture electric vehicles. I don't recall Airbus has made any announcement other than throwing their rattle out of the pram. I just googled it, nope, just talk, no definitive plans to move production out of the UK. Bank of America moves 100 jobs to Ireland due to Brexit. Oh dear, never mind. Will the sky fall down because of this? So in all your examples, most are false and outright lies on your part and I can find just 100 bankster job losses. Whooppee fucking do. You have no argument here mate, just outright lies and conjecture. EU 0 UK 4. Yep, The EU needs the UK and boy are they going to suffer if they don't cooperate. The job losses in the German banking system as Deutsche Bank crashes and in the Munich auto industry will soon bring the EU grovelling. The UK exit from the EU provides the UK with global opportunities with almost no downside. Over the next ten years, the UK economy will boom.
alen40to 6 days ago
+Airstrip One Funny, especially considering that the EU is 500 million people and 27 countries (two of which have bigger economies than the UK). The trade surplus simply means that your economy is import-based. The surplus won't disappear, because the EU is simply the only place that most of the things the UK imports can be procured from. Because the goods are either perishable and can't be shipped from the other side of the world or because it need just in time delivery, where if someone orders something today it needs to be delivered tomorrow. Do you think this would be possible with China? Hell no. The import surplus would remain the same, but the EU would have to place tariffs on UK exports to the EU, which would make the UK manufacturers uncompettive in the EU... If you trully believed that a bloc of 27 countries would need one country more than that country needs the 27, then I have a clock to sell you... The UK's pound is dropping like a sack of flour (terrible for an import economy, BoE was trying to keep it very expensive all these years because it was beneficial). The border in Ireland would have to be erected even though there are still morons that think it won't be necesarry to man that border, just because it's easier... Big multinational companies like Airbus, Dyson, Panasonic, Nissan, Jaguar Land Rover, Bank of America and many others are either relocating to the EU or have already relocated and thousands of jobs have already been lost.. But please, keep thinking that the EU needs you so much. And when in 9 days they let you crash out with no deal, you are going to continue saying that they need you more..

It's not the time for the EU to start making an enemy of the UK, or indeed, even just try and take it on in a trade war. It'll end very badly for the EU.
