The Tories are squabbling about Brexit again – wasn’t the EU referendum supposed to stop that?

Liam Fox: Don’t talk to him – he’ll only give you a lot of meaningless waffle.

All the news seems to be about Brexit.

First we had this.

Then this.

Now it turns out the Tories are fighting among themselves about what Brexit will mean – again.

The whole idea of the EU referendum was to put an end to Conservative in-fighting over the UK’s membership of that bloc.

But David Cameron made a pig’s ear of his offer to the public, failing to provide any solid information about what leaving the EU would mean.

If he had, nobody in their right mind would have voted for it and the nightmare of the last two years could have been avoided.

Tories. They can’t get anything right.

Liam Fox has said he finds the Treasury’s predictions of economic turmoil following a no-deal Brexit “hard to swallow”.

The international trade secretary’s intervention underlines deep divisions in the cabinet over the government’s approach to Brexit, with the forecasts only recently promoted by Philip Hammond.

The chancellor said his department’s best estimates were that a no-deal Brexit would lead to £80bn a year in extra borrowing, sparking fury among Brexiteers who believe leaving without an agreement would be preferable to Ms May’s Chequers proposals.

    the bottom line is mike with no deal the pound will crash hence Hammond’s warning of a crises.

    it will be like black Wednesday all over again with big interest rate rises and tax increases on those less able to afford them

    on the other hand a good brexit deal will mean a gain in the pound and things overall will be as normal

    Well had those who hate democracy and support the EU won we wouldn’t be hearing about it, but as their entire argument is based on emotional fiction instead of logical reality they are still wailing and squealing like stuck pigs and repeating all the project fear stuff, Boris is right we aren’t failing in the negotiations because with remainers in charge we haven’t even started.

      Typical. Unable to face reality, you have to resort to the usual “La la la I’m not listening, Project Fear Project Fear Project Fear” mantra.
