Brexit-Verhandlungen: Johnson droht mit "No Deal" | tagesschau.de

Der britische Premierminister erhöht in den Verhandlungen mit Brüssel den Druck. Sollte bis Mitte Oktober kein Abkommen zwischen EU und Vereinigtem Königreich vorliegen, werde es keinen Vertrag geben.
Noch schärfer im Ton war am Sonntag der britische Chef-Unterhändler David Frost: Er sei sich völlig einig mit Johnson, dass Großbritannien von einem No-Deal-Brexit nichts zu befürchten habe. "Ich glaube nicht, dass uns das in irgendeiner Weise Angst einjagt", sagte Frost der "Mail on Sunday".
Ja nee, ist klar! #brexit Drohnen mit einem No Deal? Haha! Kann er gerne kriegen, mit allem was da dran hängt.
Rofl rofl rofl.

In an unmissable talk, journalist Carole Cadwalladr digs into one of the most perplexing events in recent times: the #UK's super-close 2016 vote to leave the European Union. Tracking the result to a barrage of misleading Facebook ads targeted at vulnerable Brexit swing voters -- and linking the same players and tactics to the 2016 US presidential election -- Cadwalladr calls out the "gods of Silicon Valley" for being on the wrong side of history and asks: Are free and fair elections a thing of the past?
 
Good old Nigel Farage will be fuming. And then blame it all on the inflexible EU, as usual.
Immigration barrister Colin Yeo, author of Welcome To Britain: Fixing Our Broken Immigration System, said: “The Royal Navy cannot simply enter French waters without an agreement to return migrants crossing the Channel.

“The French authorities would need to agree to accept any returns and because of the variety of hard Brexit sought by the UK government, the current returns arrangement, called the Dublin regulation, is ending on 31 December 2020, with no sign of any replacement being negotiated. It will become harder to return migrants to France in 2021, not easier.”

When the left side of the mouth says the opposite of the right side of the mouth. Or something like that. The irony of the internal single market in the UK vs the internal single market of the EU. One is good, the other is bad. Frictionless trade is good when in the UK, but not needed any more with the EU.

Let's talk about the F-word


Best for Britain polled more than a thousand SME (small/medium enterprise) owners and asked them to express, in just five words, their feelings on Brexit, the coronavirus recession, and the future in general.

Which word appeared boldest and brightest? I’ll give you a clue – it wasn’t ‘fudge’. In these uncertain times, our most multi-talented swear-word seems to be a familiar fall-back.

Considering how the pandemy runs through #Brexit land, I'd prefer to not visit it in the first place :-0
 
I don't know, I'm not sure it has just yet. The tabloids and the right wind press of Murdoch and Co will find ways to blame the failures on others and explain some of it away with "different circumstances" (I've already seen some excuses using population density, which they can then also nicely link to those ghastly immigrants). Then there's all the patriotic VE Day stuff coming up, where I've seen plenty support with "let's celebrate VE Day social distancing style in our front gardens" already. Unless Starmer really hits the ground running and can really do some damage to the Tories I fear there's still quite some steam left in Johnson and his crew.

The British charlatan style has been sent packing by too much reality

This is a fascinating, excellent and scary thread about the "how hard can it be?" (hint: bloody hard, but you either don't understand or don't want to admit that it's hard) attitude in our political leadership.This isn't only about Coronavirus, it's about everything. It's about Brexit, Climate Change, Poverty and much much more. When Michael Gove famously said "people have had enough of experts" I feel he didn't really mean people, he meant politicians. And it worries me greatly about our future.

Oh dear, that article didn't age well, not at all. Similar to quite a few of his Brexit articles (eg claiming that the UK wouldn't leave the single market).

Daniel Hannan: Alarmism, doom-mongering, panic – and the coronavirus. We are nowhere near a 1919-style catastrophe.

As of writing this we are at over 4,000 deaths. Considering the current growth rate of deaths I expect we're going to hit the 10,000 mark in about a week (ie around 12/Apr) and there's a good chance we're going to hit 15,000 around Easter.

And that's despite the (belated) measures the government has taken (which are still being ignored by a sizeable minority). If they hadn't taken those measures I expect the numbers would have been a multiple of the current numbers. In just a few weeks. Not the whole winter season the deniers so often like to use to compare the Coronavirus to the Flu deaths we have every winter.

PS: in one of his later articles, as you would expect, he's arguing we need to lift the restrictions by Easter.

BREAKING: The entire UK strategy for fighting #coronavirus was based on false analysis. Scientists advising the Gov’t now say the UK only realised "in the last few days" that its Coronavirus strategy would "likely result In hundreds of thousands of deaths"


This reminds me of an old British TV show.

Johnson has turned comedy into reality with unimaginable consequences for the lives and safety of the citizens!

Well, well, seems the Brexit dividend didn't last very long (and I wonder what good old Nigel says now, as this tweet hasn't aged well)

It's obviously a price worth paying. And voters knew what they were voting for. Also sovereignty is more important than surviving.

So in a nutshell we're going to get a Brexit that brings no tangible benefit to anyone, makes everyone unhappy, yet keeps the Tories in power and able to continue to ruin the country. All because people thought they knew what they were voting for, while not actually knowing anything. And not even because of an ideology, just because of a method.

The indivisibility of the 52% as method in Brexit, even now

Wasn't Brexit supposed to reduce bureaucracy? This sounds more like an explosion in bureaucracy. It also only covers the state side of it, not the business side.

And wasn't Brexit supposed to save money? Well, let's say the 50,000 extra staff fully costed (ie including overhead, pension contributions, employer social security contributions etc) cost £30,000 per year. Which I think is optimistic, it's more likely to be more. Still, even at only £30k/year per head that's £1,500,000,000 per year. That's over 4 Brexit battle buses per year (Remember the £350M/week claim on the bus...). 4 buses we're not going to spend on the NHS, but on bureaucracy. Oh, and don't forget, this is only for the state side, not the costs business will have to bear. Which I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same again, or more. So that's 8 buses in additional bureaucracy costs every year. Or two months of the annual EU contributions (as overstated by the Leave campaign, as in reality after the rebate and the amounts the UK got back it was far less. Meaning it's probably more like half of the net annual EU contributions by the UK).

Only the US and the EU? Which country with a sane mind would enter a trade deal with the UK if they know there's a good chance the UK will later try to wiggle out of the deal, not fulfil its commitments or try to circumvent the agreement?

Two older articles, but still interesting today:

The blue passport is taking back control? No, it was first imposed on us from abroad - So the only thing that changes is the colour (which wasn't mandatory anyway) and most of the other measures are forced on the UK by (no surprise there) the US. Unless the Brexiteers want to give up visa free travel to the US and make travelling generally more difficult, which doesn't play nicely with "global Britain"

Now we're getting blue passports back, what else can Britain restore? - Seems there isn't exactly much. Except for pointless nonsense most of the younger generation won't understand and won't work with the proclaimed goal of "global Britain"

A painful and brutal truth. If the planned points based immigration system goes ahead the UK will sadly only find out in a decade or later, if ever, on how much talent it has missed out. And the UK's loss will be other countries gain.

The UK wants the 'best' immigrants. Why would they want the UK?
With its new points-based immigration system, Britain should realise it is not the only one able to pick and choose

What this article (like far too many articles about the impact of travelling or working abroad in Europe after Brexit) fails to mention: Almost certainly something very similar will apply for UK artists wanting to perform in the EU. They will need some kind of work visa or a work permit or something similar. They will have to complete a huge amount of paperwork for their instruments and any merchandise (t-shirts, CDs etc) they might want to take with them to sell at their concerts. As most of these artists are at the very start of their career and their tours are self organised this will make it extremely difficult for them. In effect this will mean that many young and promising artists will never get their chance. The UK music industry will be hit very hard by this, very hard.

EU touring artists will need visas to perform in the UK from 2021

Good luck to UK workers wanting to work in the EU (or other non English speaking countries) if the EU (or other non English speaking countries) reciprocate and require skills in the relevant local language. I'm pretty sure a vastly higher percentage of non-British workers learn English than English workers learning any other foreign language....

UK to close door to non-English speakers and unskilled workers

PS: just to be clear, I support expectations/requirements for immigrants to integrate, incl to learn the local language. But I wouldn't necessarily make it a requirement to be allowed in in the first place (if you need it for the job and don't speak it you won't be hired anyway). But once you're there and in particular if you intend to stay it should be a requirement. But that goes both ways: Brits retiring to Spain, Portugal or France should be required to learn the respective local language, integrate and don't live in British expat ghettos with British pubs, British newspapers and more.

Unless something changes all that talk about "sovereignty" and "letting our own parliament decide our laws" was just yet another empty promise, certainly in regards to trade deals with all their legal, economical and societal consequences. It will just be another power grab by a Tory government with impacts lasting for generations, possibly forever.

Think Britain has sovereignty over trade deals? Not when MPs can’t stop them

I've got mixed feelings about this. On one side it would be a nice move by the EU to maintain the goodwill and friendship with those in the UK open to the EU. On the other side I'm convinced there will be no movement at all on the UK side, the government is hellbent on making it more difficult for immigrants to come to the UK and won't change a thing about the messed up settled status system. It will also provide a nice boost to the Brexiteers, "see, we can have our cake and eat it", retain free movement of Brits to the EU while stopping all EU free movement to the UK.
