POLL - Brexit: What do you think is most likely to happen?
25 September 2019 @ 11:32

The most likely outcome of Brexit is that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union within weeks with no agreement in place on its future relationship, according to recent surveys.

Britain and Northern Ireland is set to leave the superstate trading bloc on October 31. It is the third deadline for the U.K.’s departure after previous extensions were granted in order to resolve how Britain would withdraw and conduct future trading with EU members.

Fears of no-deal have increased due to a new U.K. government ramping up planning for an abrupt exit while also reducing negotiations with the EU.

According to the latest CNBC Global CFO Council quarterly survey, 43.5% of chief financial officers now view no deal as the most likely scenario. Almost a third (32.3%) predict a deadline extension, 8.1% expect a deal can be struck by the end of October, 3.2% foresee a second referendum while the remainder (12.9%) are not sure.


What do you now think is most likely to happen regarding Brexit?

Weather you are a leaver or remain the problem is how ANTI DEMOCRATIC our politicians are in ignoring the LARGEST vote the people of this country has ever had. They know better then us plebs.

There is under class in parliament and elsewhere who are determined to stop our leaving the EU against all democratic principles and 17.4 million votes for leaving the EU.
And they have the cheek to say that all the efforts to leave with a deal is not being done democratically.
I believe it all boils done to money, as always, as there would be a lot of the “elite” denied access to the present “gravy train”.

Boris appears to be the only one that genuinely wishes to honour the results of the referendum, yet his own party, not to mention 'the others', seem hell bent on destroying both him and our chances of leaving
Come on folks, your country needs you!!!.

The UK is forbidden to leave the EU without a withdrawal agreement, unless they break the law laid down by parliament. There are no negotiations going on on in Brussels, as the negotiation team has been disbanded.
The only deal on the table is Teresa May’ old deal which is unsatisfactory. If you remember, and it seems no one in here is able, the Tories, said months ago they will wait until the 11th hour and Brussels will cave. Arrogance me thinks. The media know this, however, like a good film, there wouldn’t be any point in ruining the plot.

How can you honour a vote when the leave campaign sold a load of lies to the public and if you think that politicians like Jacob Rees-Mogg and Boris Johnson are doing things for the better of the UK - just look into their monetary reasons for leaving, then you will see a different picture.... It's totally about how much money the likes of them can make - they don't give a xxxx about you or I sorry to say!!!

Boris Johnson's special adviser has said MPs will stop getting threats and abuse if they "respect" the EU referendum result. (MSN news)

'Ah' She said, 'a democracy - then surely there is a tyrant, for I have long since seen that democracies, having no clear will of their own, in the end set up a tyrant, and worship him.'

Its Parliament verses the people.
I voted to leave and am not interested in a deal made by politicians which is guaranteed to be rubbish

BEIDERBECK - Democracy IS a flawed system of government but is the best we have.If only our MPs would honour that democratic system we wouldn't be in this shyte.

Someting that intrigues me - and also leaves me dismayed is that there seem to be quite a lot of Brits living on the coast here in Spain who are also leavers. Is that not pure hypocracy?


Colin Harris said:

It amazes me how many English immigrants in Spain think we should leave to make themselves poorer and their life more difficult.

I don't understand the British who live in the EU wanting the UK to leave. For pensioners, the pound has sunk around 30%. That is a big hit. Then there are ongoing rumblings over healthcare. I have heard some are returning to the UK, which, with the poor weather, I cant imagine this is an outcome they're too happy with? Then there were a lot of discussions around voting rights. I am just amazed that EU based British are in favour. Why??

Many EXPATs who voted leave did so as they NOT selfish - they put COUNTRY before their OWN selfish requirements.


Dave11 said:
28 September 2019 @ 13:37

I would love to find that EXPAT who puts his or her COUNTRY before their ownr equirements - it's a TOTAL DREAM - Cloud cuckoo land!!!!
And if their own country (UK) is so good why have they left it......

For people who even own homes anywhere in EU want separation, are they sincere , What about lies that were told?
And still told regardless of the out come that will affect many working class. What about our properties in EU . In democracy we are allowed to voice out as human. Very big thinking should be allowed otherwise it is dictatorship

Colin Harris - Such a twat comment. Why is Brexit going to make ex-pats(immigrants in Spain) and poorer. I for one won't be & I know many others will be extremely happy.

rob_j1 - The pound has moved in exactly the same manner that it has for many years since the start of the euro. In fact it is better than it was last july but obviously depends which way you want to change. It has been equal, it has been 1.30+, it was 1.75 way back when. It fell because of market forces and stupid EU laws & UK politicians which curtailed everything the UK stands for.

DAVE11.Crazy comment - If voting was disregarded because lies were told EVERY election would void.

A few quick questions. What have the U.K. lost by being members of the EU?
When did the U.K. declare war with the EU? Why is the UK not running the EU as they have one of the highest numbers of MEPS.

MIDASGOLD - So your comments are not CRAZY then. You must be on another planet.
Anyway can't keep on typing I'm off looking for that EXPAT who puts his country before himself - think that may take me a very very very very long time to find!!!

The UK, is the 5th biggest economy in the world with a population of only 66 million, but just over 17 million voted to leave. There is therefore a huge majority of people who did not vote to do so. Some chose not to vote and some voted to remain including me because in my case, it was not clear what leave meant. Three years 3 months later it still is not clear what leaves means, although these days its seems to be hard Brexit with the risks of untold economic harm and the real possibility of the breakup of the UK as Scotland will quite possibly go its own way, not to mention the Northern Ireland situation with the Good Friday Agreement.
People talk about democracy and the will of the people, but since the Brexit vote, there has been a general election and the Conservatives lost their majority - hardly a strong endorsement from the electorate regarding Brexit and certainly not a mandate to adopt the most extreme form of it. We now have a government with an even smaller minority that is so incompetent it can't even stay on the right side of the law and appears to be hell bent on taking the UK out by the 31st Oct 19 come what may.
I fully understand the frustration of those who voted leave, but it is apparent that the ramifications were never understood, even by those who commissioned the vote in the first place. The chickens are now coming home to roost, or maybe it's the turkeys coming home for Christmas.

Ron Smith. Ok I respect your view BUT there many BIG positives to our exit which are lost to you. You assume economic harm, I am of the opposite view. I voted in 1973 to join a TRADE club and NOT the dictatorship which has evolved. I totally understood the ramifications (as you put it) of our leaving - that is a false quote used by many remains. Every vote has a major number of non active people - that is the way it always is- and NO useful conclusion can be drawn as that could go either way .This small country is 5th biggest economy because of British people and their work ethic, that wont change

Very true Ron Smith. Good comment....

Great comments from Dave 11 and Ron Smith, most of the others are ridiculous, especially the comment that the £ is better than last July, that is because recent speculation has been firm on an extension or us revoking no deal. That shows what the global financial people think of our chances outside the EU.
Oh yes, Colin Harris, whilst I agree with your intended sentiment kindly remember the vote was for BRITISH not just the English people! So rude to be ignored like this.
