UK gets a kick

I see the EU has given up waiting for the UK government to finally come up with any form of plan for Brexit and has published its own bill (filling in the gaps).
This should be fun, I always enjoy watching politicians under pressure. Shame it breaches the good Friday agreement, looks like May will be earning her money in the next few weeks. I wonder when the next election will be, will it be announced in 13 months or sooner?

13 months you say? Gripping story! Wake me up next week.

Never voted for Mr Major but he has today put forward a perfectly succinct and articulate case for Mrs May to stop and listen to what’s best for the country at this precarious stage in a process that could be hugely damaging for generations to come.

How did the uk get a kick? The EU has not altered its position . One of the major points of the referendum was taking back control of borders....... but it seems the people in power have no idea how to do that with respect to a significant land border

It's a kick because it now also sets the default position for talks and I assume it's what the EU will implement if no other agreement is reached (with May in charge there won't be).
Let's see what they do about a hard border between NI and the mainland.

If John Major had given the country a referendum on Maastricht we wouldn't be in the state we are now. The country would have rejected it big time and we wouldn't have gone in so deeply.
Remember it's the EU who won't budge in negotiation and presumably want a hard boarder in NI. There will not be a hard boarder on the British side.
In the words of Michael Caine
" I would rather be a poor master than a rich servant "
We are trying to negotiate a trade deal, they are trying to negotiate politics.
All the time it's like that NO progress will be made, we should leave negotiations and prepare to leave this time next year.
Watch what happens in Italy this weekend , it could very well be a game changer.

The hard border will be on the British side, in the EU proposal there is no border in Ireland (only between NI and the mainland).

Boris, "We are trying to negotiate a trade deal, they are trying to negotiate politics."
We're not trying to negotiate a trade deal though are we, we're months off that, at the moment we haven't even said what trade deal we want, other than to say "we are going to negotiate a free-trade agreement with the EU.".
Hence the need for a "transition period".
