The Brexit. Negotiations start on a week Monday.

While we will hear little from the team we know that they are under instruction to check Arrse before making any decisions. Therefore here is your chance to advise the negotiating team.

Personally I think they should walk into the negotiating rooms and say "Right! We're off. How much do you want to pay us for a trade agreement?"

The ground hasn't been already been set.

We want nothing. Anything above that is a bonus. If you want to play funny buggers we'll collapse the PIGS economy's and bring the jousenof cards tumbling down whilst giving russia the nod to have a go with western Ukraine safe in the knowledge that a permanent Member Ofbthe UN Security Council won't be too bothered.

Goad Europe into demanding more and more money from us to leave.

Europe will have spent it long before we get to March 19, while we are tightening our belts in expectation of hard times. Then in March 19 tell Europe to go away in short sharp and jerky movements. Suddenly there's a nine figure hole in their finances and we have a nine figure fighting fund to do sweeteners with non-EU trading partners.

"Trade tariff on our automotive products. Well we have been instructed to inform you that we are setting tariffs on all German and French automotive companies at x+5%. Ditto for aerospace and defence. Well except for seat belt harnesses, ejector seats and any other basic safety equipment. We won't put lives at risk with a trade war." Then leak that to Mercedes, BMW, VW, Renault etc. And watch the national governments having their ears bent by national industrial champions.

I believe that has already happened, which would explain why the German Gov't is keen to have a deal that would leave German exports to Britain untouched, ie no excessive taxes etc.

These jousenof cards sound interesting. Some sort of secret weapon?

I'd go for the Ray Winston approach in Scum in the scene he becomes the "Daddy"

"Where's ya fuckin tool". Or similar.

You can do a fair bit of damage with a pool ball in a sock.

'It's in all our interests to reach a mutually acceptable deal.
We're keen to facilitate EU imports into the UK, and imagine you will want to reciprocate. We are similarly keen to grant reciprocal rights for EU citizens residing in the UK, and Brits in the EU.
Ending Freedom of Movement is not negotiable - it ends.
We'll consider a one off leaving bill but only if costed and legally necessary.
Would you like a cup of tea?'

Because of the Russians?

Actually, it's mainly because of the Americans and the Russians, initially deliberated in Tehran, recrafted at Yalta and finalised in Potsdam! The latter put Greece under our influence in a trade for Romania, Bulgaria and the former Yugoslavia (we all know how that ended and Croatia is still not pleased) being left to the Soviet sphere of influence and our collusion in the Greek civil war ensued.

In excess of 130,000 German POWs were killed in Russian detention camps post war, but on balance the Germans knocked off approximately 3.5M Russian POWs between 1941 - 1945, whilst we actually benefitted from the 400,000 German POWs accumulated in UK by 1947 in order to survive, especially by the end of WW2 -

Every EU country has a legitimate grudge against the UK, mostly for historic sleights in the last century, and not least the Poles. They will be doubly peeved if they're kicked out of the UK post 2019. Whilst we may have entered WW2 because of them, Churchill was exceedingly naive about Stalin, whilst Roosevelt effectively sold them to the Soviets at Yalta. Many other EU nations also have memories of a quieter MENA before the carnage of recent decades, which is put firmly at the US and UK doors (people conveniently forget the French lead in Libya). Several EU nations owe us big time, but BREXIT is about a socio-economic model, not fond memories! Unfortunately, most of the negotiators have shorter memories, and only see the UK as traitor to the EU club - the clock is ticking!
