If nothing but un-achievable targets are on the table, I can the Brits walking away.

Well 'walk away' has been shouted by Ian D-Smith but who'd want to listen to that anti EU wallah. Then we see Boris changed his tune PDQ, about letting them whistle.

But if we ask ourselves what if.... What if UK packed up and walked away ? What happens next ? Does it give Germans and French etc time to think about the massive hole in their export trade to UK.....bearing in mind we'd still be in, and nothing changes until renegotiations restarted....perhaps with clearer minds on the part of the twenty seven.

Then again who stands to dip out most..... Just kicking about food for thought I believe we're better off in than out.

But how much oblivion Bo ?. Walking away doesn't mean we're out.

Mind you walking away would indicate incompetence in some quarters, and give Corbyn more leverage....The last thing we want is a Tory breakup, giving way to no confidence etc, and a poss gen election, under the circumstances. I could be wrong but anything is possible.

The worst thing that could happen for everyone concerned would be a GE with the inevitable consequences of a further delay in an EU deal The pound would tank and and confidence in the British economy would erode further . Some of the establishment in the UK seem to want to go down that route by the looks of things . Farage , Rees Mogg , B J , IDS all seem to want anarchy .
