  • Brexit: UK 'must not allow itself to be blackmailed'

    The UK must not allow itself to be "blackmailed" by the EU over its Brexit settlement bill, International Trade Secretary Liam Fox has said.


    Talks on the final settlement should begin as soon as possible "because that's good for business", Mr Fox said.

    Businesses around the world have become impatient with the slow progress of the negotiations, Mr Fox added.


    EU negotiator Michel Barnier said there had been little progress on key issues, and trade talks were "quite far" away.

    I entirely agree with Fox. It's ridiculous for Barnier to insist on talks about the divorce bill ( Or the ransom as I call it.) while not telling us how much they are demanding and then expecting us to pay it without a clue as to what they are offering in return. Trade deals need to be discussed at the same time.

  • Why do we even have to pay a bill, if anything shouldn't they be giving us a refund of what we have already paid as we will no longer be member of their little dictatorial club with it's so called 'membership benefits'.

    Young boys in the park jumpers for goalpost that's what footballs all about isn't it.

  • I'm hoping the Germans undergo some sort of amazing sea change and chuck out Merkel. For as start ...

  • What's really important is having someone in the hot seat who can take Brexit to conclusion quickly and without engaging in under the counter deals. You really should have the right to go if that is what you want to do. It's a question of social justice in regaining your liberty.


    (How many self proclaimed social justice warriors agree, do you think? 8) )
