Brexit Phase Two - Trade

Your trying to make it sound like you are being told to leave the EU Customs Union, you aren’t
Now there's a rewrite of History.
Did Juncker not say prior to the a50 that If Britain left it would not be permitted access to the CU and thus to the SM?.
Did Cameron not accept those terms, shortly before he resigned?
Did TM not underline that acceptance?

No.
 
Brexit is a grave strategic error. Sorry.
Question remains, for Whom? I wouldn't be so sure that is so clear cut.
The reality is that the EU needs us in to become EUssr. Actually what the EU needs to do is sort out it's economic messes and it's missed the boat on a number of occasions. A reshaping the the EU could have been a different matter.
 
That is slightly clearer, you really need to tighten up your writing.

From what you say, you apologised to several people, what for and on whose say so is not the issue. This apologising you reported on Arrse, from where you picked up some bites (nibbles) from Arrsers, not from the Septics and Swedes, which your statement could easily imply, so you decided to maintain the frisson by lying to the site! :threaten:

You no longer apologise to Johnny foreigner. Correct?

This now leads into the next question - did you stop apologising because you realised you were wrong to do so and now fully accept Brexit? A fact you have tried to cover up by fibbing and prolonging the idea of you being the country's self appointed apologiser.

I think you need to apologise to the site! :mad:
Have you stopped making stuff up about people yet or are you ready for that bet?

The Italian reply will be predictable - Foxtrot Oscar.

And unlike Greece, Italy is too big to bully. Not least because if the Italian economy gets into trouble, the euro is toast.

If we get a full on EU v Italy punch-up, Brexit becomes a sideshow.

Brexit is already a side-show.

Genuine question here - Could the EU theoretically reject a UK budget before the Brexit date?
 
I don't think they can because we're not part of the Eurozone however, like you, happy to be enlightened by something definitive.
Ah yes. You're probably right there

As far as I know - no. The Italian budget can be rejected because it's a member of the euro and - on paper at least - all euro states have to conform to a set of 'convergence' criteria.

However, if the Italians say 'No', there is f-all the European Commission can do about it. Were they to try, and cause a run on the Italian banks as a result, that's effectively it for the euro. The impact of an Italian financial crisis would finish it.

And given as there is fairly wide recognition in Italy that the euro is the cause of their economic stagnation - the Italian economy has scarcely grown over the past decade - saying Foxtrot Oscar to the EU is politically popular in Italy.
