Juncker blames his regular unsteadiness on "sciatica", I don't see how that excuse explains his other eratic behavior.

Are the other EU partners conspicuos by their no comment. They all agreed on the brexit deal, and now what? What will they do when we have gone, will their be crisis after crisis. You can't take a country that was proping up most of the rest away, without some kind of repurcusions.

Leave with a "No deal" or leave with the deal that is an the table now. I don't care which one it is, but lets get out. We can work with whatever one it is and work it out.

@majorp 

If we "leave" with the deal that is on the table then that is not leaving at all, we will be tied to the EU until it decides otherwise, which will be never because Brussels fears a truly independent trading nation on its doorstep.  It is essential Treason May's deal is rejected and we leave on WTO terms if necessary.

Given globalisation and the economic and political clout of vast international corporations and middle east regimes I would question the term 'independent' trading nation.

Reality has dawned on Varadkar, and Ireland is now bricking it in case of a No Deal Brexit: 

 

The Government will seek hundreds of millions of euro in special aid from Brussels if the UK crashes out of the EU without a deal.

Dublin has already alerted the EU Commission that it will be lobbying for emergency aid to cope with the fallout to Irish trade, particularly for the beef, dairy and fishing sectors.

With Westminster deadlocked, fears are growing that Britain will exit the EU in just 12 weeks’ time without a deal.

However, it also comes at a time when Ireland is under increasing pressure from key EU member states, such as France and Germany, to increase taxes on multinational high-tech companies in Ireland.

Agriculture Minister Michael Creed has told the Irish Independent that if, and when, a hard Brexit becomes a reality, Ireland will be making a case for major grant aid.

“You’re looking at hundreds of millions here. Between the beef industry and the fishing industry we’re talking mega-money,” he said.

https://www.independent.ie/business/brexit/emergency-eu-aid-to-be-sought-for-brexit-fallout-37676966.html

 

The article goes on to say that, in value terms, one third of the fish caught by Ireland's fishing fleet is taken from British waters.

This rather makes a nonsense of the lie peddled by Remainers that the EU doesn't really need Britain at all.

May left it to the last minute (actually way after the last minute) to offer to speak to Corbyn and others and said she would only speak to people individually. I would rather remain but if we actually want to do a deal we need everyone around a table including the EU to thrash out a deal. They seem to f***ing about again and not doing anything! We'll go to the EU with a slightly amended offer and they will rightly say no. The problem is Brexit, a bit like religion, everyone has their own version of it even if they think they are heading in the same direction and have the same ideals.

 

Even fewer people will be happy with the deal we agree than were unhappy with the referendum result because it won't match their individual expectation.  The government, whose sole aim is to stay in power and not looking after the good of the country, are in a difficult position but either get a deal, have a people vote or just don't leave. I'll be happy with either decision, just wish they would make one!
