Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I still feel the EU's concern for this is overblown. They will be blamed for no deal by Brexiteers and the Tory media regardless of how obvious it is that Boris blew it. There is no way they can avoid it.

Basically the Tory line will be that everything is fine now and has been for 45 years so why does the EU have to change anything? To protect their uncompetitive industry is why!

All we (Brexiteers) want is our political freedom back to make our own trade deals and business regulations like every other non EU member sovereign state. Ergo it follows that the only reason we can't have our cake and eat is because the EU is trying to punish us for leaving.

Arcane arguments about "level playing fields" and common standards just won't cut it. It will be put down as bureaucratic arguments to make life as difficult as possible for freedom loving Brits because they know we Brits are better at competing on a world stage than those regulation loving Eurocrats...

The EU will be compared to the Soviet Union as a political attempt to control freedom loving peoples. People will be told it is better to be free and poor rather than be slightly better off and strangled by bureaucrats.

And like the Soviet Union, the European Union will collapse in due course because of the contradictions it contains - basically lots of culturally distinct peoples who will want to express their cultural identities through political independence.

The Brexiteers define a nation as having a soul you are prepared to die for, if necessary, to defend it. Whoever ever wanted to die for the EU bureaucracy?
