Liam Fox said a Brexit deal would be easy. With no deal likely, he’s diverting blame

Looking guilty: Liam Fox.

How craven: The man who predicted the Brexit negotiations would be the “easiest in human history” now insists he shouldn’t be blamed if there isn’t a deal.

The man who predicted the Brexit negotiations would be the “easiest in human history” now insists he shouldn’t be blamed if there isn’t a deal.

Liam Fox told the BBC that the government wants a deal with Europe – but that if there is no deal “it wouldn’t be the fault of the UK government, it would be the fault of its European partners”.

It comes less than a month after Fox claimed that “collective responsibility burned to the ground” when May agreed to extending talks with the EU.

9 Thoughts to “Liam Fox said a Brexit deal would be easy. With no deal likely, he’s diverting blame”

  1. Zippi

    To be fair, it SHOULD have been the easiest deal in the world, purely because of the starting point.

  2. Carol Fraser

    Well we knew that was coming. The man is an incompetent failure and should be suffering the same fate as Field and Hoey, deselection

    1. Mike Sivier

      Wrong political party.

  3. Pat Reid

    Just reading the second of your posts and noticing repetition of the first paragraph in both – intentional or a blip?

    1. Mike Sivier

      Indeed.

  4. The EU position has been clear from the start. The Tory government’s position changes with the wind, depending upon who is making the statement. Fox is a dishonest individual who, like others, is trying to distance himself from the mess he has helped to create.

    1. Barry Davies

      The EU hadn’t even discussed what it wants until last month that is why Barmier has been making ludicrous demands and pretending we hadn’t said what we wanted despite having had a multi page outline very early on. Fox wasn’t aware that remainers May and Hammond would be interfering and doing their utmost to keep us in.

      1. Mike Sivier

        That seems like a bit of a fairy story to me. Are you going to produce evidence from a reputable source, or are you going to ignore my request for it (again)?

  5. John.

    He’s a brextremist prat, just like the other jingoistic, hate filled tory clowns.

    The entire Brexit debacle stems from an infantile, jingoistic, patriotic euphoria that swept through the gullible, pig ignorant masses in 2016, cheered on by odious right wing demagogues and chancers tapping in to and exploiting the racism that lurks in every corner of British society..

    My worry is who their next scapegoat is going to be, the problems that people conveniently and carelessly blame on the EU and immigration are really the problems of Thatcher’s vile, toxic legacy and they are going nowhere when we leave.
