    It is hard to say whether Merkel being unable to get an alliance with the FDP is going to be better for a good Brexit deal or worse. The FDP are a pro-business party and would probably be more in favour or reaching an equitable, pragmatic arrangement post Brexit. The alternatives may involve the Greens or more extreme (left and right) and I am not sure they are so interested. Germany is the one country that should be interested, financially, in keeping the UK on-side for easy future trading. It is not a bad thing that "no-deal" is a position that the UK has to keep in mind and being hailed as OK by many, but it most assuredly is not. I am guessing that most people saying this have not been involved in operating a business that relies on exports or imports. The UK may emerge after such a (lack of) deal as doing OK eventually, but it will take many years. And there would still be an amount to pay to the EU of, at least, £20B based on legal commitments.

    Just seems to be getting clearer by the week that the Referendum was premature. Many people thought the Franco-German control of the EU was already loosening and that the UK’s relaxed attitude to imposing more rules and devising ever-more complicated formulas for raising money was edging it nearer to being the kingpin member. Of course that doesn’t take account of those who want the UK out of the EU at any cost. And it looks like they’ll get their wish — it will ultimately cost, dearly...!

    Worse.

    Whatever she does will be wrong. If she gives the UK a good deal she will look weak and if she demands telephone number the oppostion will insist that she could have gotten more. Mutti won't do much of anything until she has hammered out a deal with someone or other and established a sound base.

    Well you can respect somebody who shows some political backbone,while the UK politicians keep turning and signing a surrender document,they will get no respect from the EU or from the electorate.

    At least half the country is prepared for a no-Brexit deal. Everyone who voted 'remain', most of those who didn't vote at all and even some of those who voted 'leave' would be happy with a deal that means no Brexit.

    Two European agencies are leaving London. European Medicines Agency is off to Amsterdam, European Banking Authority going to Paris. Over 1000 jobs to go.
    Medicine and banking. Two key sectors where we're about to be marginalised. And probably too late to reverse even if Brexit is halted.

    Brexit

    I did not realise how much a no deal will affect the EU and the UK. TV broadcasters, financial services and pharmaceutical companies may have to move some of its operations to the EU in order to carry out business in the EU. There must be businesses that are based in the EU that would want to carry on operating in the UK when the UK leaves EU. Will they have to move? Massive organisations can afford to have two hubs in the EU and the UK but smaller organisations in the EU and the UK will not be able to. What will happen in the future when other countries decide to leave the EU? Are any other countries thinking of leaving? The EMA is going to Amsterdam and the EBA is going to Paris. What about the smaller EU countries, why don't they get choose to host these agencies? Will the UK be able to sign other trade deals with countries? Is the UK attractive enough to trade with?

    This is the UK's peoples stand against centralised power and eventual complete control by an EU government,they know it we know it,it seems you don't know it.The neo liberals or the progressives have already accepted they will be a number on the EU board.While they are ruled over by a central dictator.
