Still time for a democratic 3 choice referendum.

1, Leave with no deal.

2, Brexit in name only (May's deal).

3, Remain (Revoke A50)

 

Which one of those would you pick?

I suspect some of the figures being used also include services.

That would make sense. 

Bit of a worry if the majority of what we export to the US is services tbh. 

Ireland must be licking their chops...

How the **** did that cost 800k?!

That's how things go. May as well ask how did not building a bridge cost £53 million.

80% of our exports are services.

There's nowhere near enough time.

Option 3 needs removing, that's already been voted on. Can only keep that if we're going to get referendums every three years for the rest of time.

A deal post Brexit would always be a type of BINO; until we manage to sort out a proper two tier Europe / Common Market 2.0 - whatever you want to call it.  The EEA offered more control over Mrs May's deal, as it returned more competencies whilst removing the UK out of the political circus of the EU Commission.  This is where she was short sighted, and people have still yet to realise this.

Christ. 

Didn't know that. 

Surely a lot of that is the US using the UK as a hub into the EU markets? 

Total guess, but I'd presume we have the majority of service exports from the EU area to the US?

Then again, even if we do lose most of those, is it actually us real people that'll suffer, or just our elite and their tax havens?

Here’s more sad news...

 

 

 

What a delightful 'let them eat cake' moment.' hardened my no deal Brexit stance even more! Can they not get the increase up to 25%?  I drive an 11 year old ford c-max. No chance of upgrading to a Porsche now due to Brexit.  Aw shucks.

Given those 3, I'd take Remain all day long. 

(Voted Leave, but the first 2 options are bonkers).

If we get another I can assure you that remain will be on the ballot.

Source?

I've only ever seen UK exports to the US given as around 50 billion.

Official 2015 stats give it as 45 billion. Handy wiki here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_the_largest_trading_partners_of_United_Kingdom

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/business-44802666

Says 112billion.

You will be fine, just buy an Aston Martin, they won't be affected by Brexit so you would have them on your boycott list.

Yes vote option 3. Start again or reform the EU.
More referendums? Sure bring it on. Years of referendums is a hell of a lot easier and cheaper than the currently proposed alternatives.

Then EU Leaver's need to come up with a fully costed exit plan that doesn't destroy what's left of UK industry and prevent the breakup of the UK and it's territories. Otherwise what's the point? :wacko: Oh and some genuine upsides to all the pain would be nice.

Why should we take advice from someone who doesn't know how to use an apostrophe?

Option 3 only needs removing if you don't give a stuff about democracy. It's not a rerun of the 2016 referendum it has the 3 choices available now.
