    Of course they will. They've been sat waiting 2 years to start negotiating instead what they got was someone who thinks she's a bloody difficult woman.

    On your points, you are guessing that it will happen, my view is that it may not, saying something is one thing doing it is another.

    Pure guess work in a lot of people's opinions tbh.
    It's not a guess, it's a racing certainty.
    Where is the incentive for "just in time"Japanese car manufacturers to continue production in the UK when:
    There's tariffs applied every time a component crosses the channel
    There's paperwork for every crossing
    There's custom checks at what will become a very congested border
    The final product faces a WTO 10% tariff, (on top of the individual component tariffs)
    The Japanese have recently agreed a trade deal with the EU, so even less incentive to build in the UK

    So if they have been sat waiting for 2 years how come they offered nothing in response yesterday even if what May was proposing wasn't very palatable to them ?
    There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.

    The EU share of global GDP is 16%, the USA is 15% and China is 14%, but yet you think it's a good idea to tell the potential best customer, the EU to go and "fuck off"?

    It's possible but bloody unlikely.... On balance I'd got for the " fuck off " approach, pay them jack shit and let them finance and police a border in Ireland themselves...And we go independent...
