Steve Shaw BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (2668* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 11 Apr 19

"The EU is the supplicant and Thereasa May's big failure is to not use this to her advantage."

This is just more little-Englandism. Now let's suppose that May can somehow concoct a threat to the EU that they won't get our money. Blackmail, sort of thing. Exactly how do you think that would help in future trade negotiations? I'll tell you what: the little offshore island of 66 million would suffer a damn sight more than the bloc of over 400 million that has Germany as its engine room. Something like half our trade is with the EU, not to speak of the heavy involvement of the services sector. You want to compromise all that by doing a Rees-Mogg and playing all awkward. You're living in the 19th century, mate. Britannia don't rule no waves any more. Hubris goeth before a fall.
