VIDEO – Are we going to be sold down the river with a 60% Brexit?

It revealed today in the Daily Express that David Frost has spoken to some Conservative MPs in regards to Britain achieving its objectives in these currents talks. It’s reported that Mr Frost told the Conservative MPs that Britain might only win 60% of its demands in these negotiations.

Professor Tim Bale, Deputy Director of the UK. in a Changing Europe think tank has said that Mr Frost is only realistic in his views. It’s reported that Tim has also stated that the UK would be better off to accept the 60% that’s on offer, saying it is “not that smart a move” to walk away from negotiations empty-handed.

Mr Bale told the Express: “Brexiteers might be disappointed that David Frost thinks that a lot of objectives won’t be achieved in a trade deal with the European Union, but he’s only being realistic – no one gets everything they want out of a negotiation, especially if, to use the PM’s favourite analogy, they’re wanting to have their cake and eat it.

“It would be hard to imagine that the UK can push any harder than it’s already doing.

“UK negotiators are still threatening to walk away if it doesn’t get a satisfactory deal – what’s left after that? Nuclear weapons?

“Most people would say it’s better to get 60 percent of something than 100 percent of nothing, so walking away is arguably not that smart a move.”

Wyn Grant, British political scientist and Professor of Politics at the University of Warwick wrote on his website: “The EU holds most of the cards so 60 percent of objectives being met in any trade deal with the EU may be a realistic assessment, although a little pessimistic.

“The EU is unlikely to be that fazed by a UK withdrawal from the talks as they would expect the UK to return once the consequences of a no deal became evident after January 1.

“It is difficult for the UK to take a harder line when it is going to look like a bluff.

Boris promised to get brexit done. We didn’t sign up to a 60% Brexit.

“The EU market matters more to the UK than the other way round.

“Both sides would actually prefer to strike an agreement, but there is a real risk that they won’t.”

Is Britain becoming subservient to the EU yet again?

The big question is this if the EU is only offering to sign up to 60% of the UK demands, what is 40% the UK would be giving away? Why should Britain sign up to a deal which doesn’t meet the objectives of the UK?

What is your opinion on this, are we going to be getting a 60% Brexit?

  1. You say no one gets 100% of what they want out of a negotiation and 60% is better than walking away with nothing, well the UK doesn’t want anything, the UK demands nothing all the demands are coming from the EU, so in my mind the UK would be far better off by leaving on WTO than conceding to any of the EU demands.
    The government would be foolish to continue any political ties with the EU after the transition period ends so if the EU continues with its unreasonable demands the UK must walk away, trade with Europe will continue on WTO with a estimated 5 billion tariffs for the UK and a 13 billion tariff bill for European countries, if Germany with its motor cars and France with its wine etc are prepared to risk loosing trade due to prices for goods being hiked by high tariffs its their discussion and their loss but without a doubt the UK must leave the EU as a independent sovereign country without any political ties to the EU institute.

  2. How is it nuclear weapons left? stupid comment we will trade on WTO rules, as for fishing rights when we have left, international law means you are not allowed in our territorial waters.
