Because the bbc long since gave up any pretense of being a news source and is an anti UK agitator.Given the majority of UK trade is under the auspices of WTO, it should be characterised as being a "leap towards the familiar".
Quite how it's been characterised as being a "cliff edge" or "a leap into the dark" is beyond me.
That is a rather broad brush and a fetching shade of 'sweeping generalisation’The EUropeons regard life outside the comfort blankie of the EU as an absurd flat earth notion, the whole EU project really has achieved the status of a secular religion.
the average EUropeon simply can’t fathom why Britain would want to leave this Divine CE regulated Heaven on Earth, but there again, the average EUropeon simply can’t fathom the symbolism of the chorus of Britain’s de facto National Anthem....
”Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.
Strangely that very thought occurred to me whilst reading the foam flecked thoughts in Irish media on my iPad early this morning.1st of January sign a bi-lateral deal with Merkel,and the rest can go and ffuch themselves until they drown in Paddy tears and come to their senses.
It always amazes me that europhiles both sides of the channel/Irish sea all seem to want to blame the UK for jumping at the chance to give the EU all our fish, let the EU dictate what we can and can't do in terms of state aid, and tie ourselves to the ECJ, rather than going to the ICC to settle disputes.Strangely that very thought occurred to me whilst reading the foam flecked thoughts in Irish media on my iPad early this morning.
( the true horror of what they are probably about to receive is now starting to dawn and the only thing the Dublin ” intellegencia” ( sic) can do now is rail at us.!)

I imagine that the populations of member states are as just split on the EU membership thing as he population of the UK.
That has always been my fear too. I've had that feeling ever since cameron walked, and the farce of the last 4 years + started. A plague on all their houses for not carrying out the result immediately it was known. I'm a little less fearful now, as I think the tories would be wary of the backlash, should they capitulate now. Nothing to do with believing in democracy, more concerned with them not being electable for years. Nigel's still lurking. If he started up again on a leave vote, I'm sure it would garner enough support to, finally. get us out. I've said elsewhere my feelings on the democratic process. A lot of remain supporters have realised how undemocratic we've been treated since 2016. I too however, won't be celebrating until the bells ring on Ne'er Day.ETA, I really hope Boris does not fold now.
