I disagree on that. One of the main reasons for Brexit wasnt even related to economics or foreign influence, it was related to immigration.

It's not about economics or immigration in the sense for russia, we all know that EU is their biggest enemy, so from the inside they want to weaken it as much as possible, less influance of UK on EU politics, better for them.

UK has technically always been the black sheep of EU. If I had to say why UK decided to leave, it would be related to immigration and how EU supposedly been robbing them for years now. (and yes the EU’s corrupt, its undeniable at this point.)

No actually a lot of people i know and after looking at polls (i'd struggle to find them) its actually the amount of money the Leave campaign claimed was going to Brussels (40 bil i think they once said) and how they'd reinvest a bunch into the NHS (a massive part of UK politics). Sure, the prominent members campaigned on Immigration but you'd be surprised that many people saw that as a secondary issue to economics (despite many people not understanding them and or not researching them)
2019-07-23 13:31
But uk was never part of schengen, why is their immigration related to eu

The UK was stupid. Instead of changing the welfare system. As Germany did for the EU citizen. They cried about that EU citizen "abuse" their welfare system. In Germany, you need a Job (Except german citizen) to get access to social welfare stuff. The UK cried and end up in the Brexit vote. The politician in the UK is only impotent do their job but blame the UE LUL. Healthcare was a propaganda thing at the brexit campaign. It still goes down. Their healthcare is on a level to Africa LUL. But blame the EU. The good thing is. They will have more problems than less after the Brexit and can eat their own incompetence every day the next 50 years.

Yes ok. But thats not what you said. You said it as if he would prefer no deal over a deal. He would obviously prefer a deal but he was voted in on the basis he was the only candidate to say, if it is denied again then he will cut the shit and do no-deal. The other candidates didnt get voted in who were all in favour of extension / didnt say they would definitely support no deal after failed Brexit deal. This clearly gives him the support he needs in his mind to support no-deal

the EU will not make any more concessions. Boris does not want the negotiated deal He does not want to stay in the EU therefore he wants a no deal brexit. QED.
2019-07-23 17:15
The EU wants a deal Boris wants to make his own deal He doesnt want to stay in EU He does want good deal He will negotiate new deal EU will debate new deal Boris needs to end this charade He has to force a no deal Brexit by next deadline QED.
2019-07-23 17:19
the EU will not debate or renogatiate. the UK has no position left to negotiate. either they agree with the deal that is on the table or its no deal and their economy collapses. the EU doesnt need the UK. the UK does need the EU. the EU doesnt even need a deal. the EU needs British companies. companies can move...
2019-07-23 17:24
The EU has never changed their stance in the way they have always wanted a deal that would benefit them, no-deal doesnt benefit anyone lmao. They would prefer to protect the Republic of Ireland on the border so they'd prefer a deal. They want several things the UK can provide and would prefer a deal than not.
2019-07-23 17:26
yes but they are also not idiots and they know Boris is with his back against the wall so they wont give him an inch, simple as that. he has to cave. or go down in history as the man who reduced the british economy by 10% in one day.
2019-07-23 17:27
Actually i think Boris' stance will bring benefits to the negotiations. He has a stronger backing within the conservative party and has the backing of the Brexit party due to appearing to have a more hardline approach. This means he can make a deal more likely to pass through parliament He has also said he would 100% leave by the next deadline without a deal. No deal doesnt benefit the EU, a deal would benefit the EU. This puts pressure on the EU to accept a deal as it would be better than nothing. This means if Boris doesn't budge on a deal he wants then the EU will have to accept it unless it is worse than no-deal (VERY UNLIKELY)
2019-07-23 17:29
its literally irrelevant what the british political landscape looks like here are the relevant facts: 1. no deal would destroy the british economy and have some, but less, impact on EU economy. 2. the brits have no position to negotiate a better deal than what they have. and thats it. everything else is irrelevant. Boris is irrelevant. party politics are irrelevant. this is international politics. its about money. and power. not about who is PM of britain.
2019-07-23 17:33
the pressure on the EU is less than the pressure on the UK so EU can just do nothing, the brits have to give up their bluff first. the risk is too high if they keep betting on that hand. its an untenable position.

one simple thing. The EU don't care about the UK in those circumstances. Cuz the UK left them and this means they just an ordinary partner as Brazil, USA, or who else outside of the EU. If the EU would do anything for a deal, the Eu itself would make them worthless. Why EU If you can have all advantages even when you leave?

I dunno if you understand politics at all. EU--> don't care about the UK UK--> needs EU --> EU don't give them a deal that is better than any ordinary country outside of the EU. The UK--> But they want that. Boris is crying EU--> couldn't care less --> UK is fucked but they have a stupid MP now for the future to handle all the issues very bad.
2019-07-23 17:53
EU -> Includes countries that do give a shit (France cares about border, Ireland cares about Border, Netherlands cares about trade. To name a few) UK -> Doesn't NEED EU, just benefits from it, politicians wouldnt advocate for leave if it wasnt sustainable in the long term after securing new deals EU -> Benefits from the UK economically and has more to gain from a deal than no-deal. You clearly have no clue what you are talking about and are typing like a retard, im not going to take your opinion seriously because as i said yours is just an opinion whereas i am telling you facts. UK is not fucked, they stand to lose a bit, but they are far from fucked, and LITERALLY NO ONE knows how the economy will go after the initial dip especially since trade with other countries is still undecided. Future issues? We are talking about Brexit not domestic policies (which he is going to do good with imo but thats irrelevant). Within Brexit? He has a good position or atleast better than Theresa May.

UK already lost companies and jobs. Smaller company owners said they have to close if border controlls come back. No opinion-->a fact Germany pays also more with Brexit. But you can prepare yourself and they still have the other EU partners. So it is less difficult. no opinion--> a fact EU have no interest to let the UK benefit from the leave even if it means to make loses in a shot term no opinion --> a fact But I also give a crap on your opinion. I see you didnt listen when EU, UK etc talking about deal or no deal. Merkel words "This is the deal or there is no deal, we can live with both". And Merkel is a person that says such direct words only if it is her last word.
2019-07-23 20:23
edit: double comment
2019-07-23 18:07
if the UK gets a deal that is in any way beneficial for them it could cause other countries to leave the EU. which is bad for everyone. because it would make trade more difficult. imagine if every US state had border customs and tariffs and shit. it would be impossible to run a nation wide company.

Yes the EU accepted her deal several times, it was the UK parliament that denied it lmao
2019-07-23 17:26
the EU accepted "Mays deal" because that was actually the EUs deal which May copypasted like its a high school essay. it had everything they want. the british parliament rejected it. May literally told them that it was 100% impossible to get more than this and they rejected it. from the EUs negotiatiors perspective, its a very simple situation. the Brits are bluffing. they have a deadline. its their move.

I can only see people in disbelief and others in celebration that it finally happened, but then the Pound will see some inflation or value loss due to no deal brexit.

correct. And they really dont have a choice at this point, they cant cancel Brexit otherwise they’ll face even more consequences and issues than the last 3 years trying to get a deal or deliberately trying to remain. They cancel brexit? Then they can say hello to one man: Nigel Farage. which i assume to Britain would be the last person they would want.
2019-07-23 13:38
Because of how relevant it is, I'd like to mention a famous Johnson quote: "We will have our cake and eat it too". They voted for it and now they have to go through with it and face the consequences. No matter what happens the country is split. A deal would be really difficult to push through, a second referendum would be seen as a betrayal of democracy (even if it's the opposite) and no deal would only hurt both sides.

Hitler was a retard. An extrapolated Trump. Both are good with words, that's about it. They rate themselves too highly but can't think two steps ahead. It wasn't Hitler having all those good ideas that brought him somewhere during WW2, it was the generals. Hitler forced stupid ass moves on his generals and ignored their input and it cost Germany in the end.

Quotes: "Orientals ... have larger brains and higher IQ scores. Blacks are at the other pole." (He was editor of the paper that published this article) "Female students went to university because they have got to find men to marry." "Voting Tory will cause your wife to have bigger breasts and increase your chances of owning a BMW M3." "My chances of being PM are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars, or my being reincarnated as an olive." [They should remove burkhas...]“especially if a student turns up in class... looking like a bank robber” "I would go further and say that it is absolutely ridiculous that people should choose to go around looking like letter boxes."

the only thing wrong about that burkha bit is his comedic delivery though. "I would go further and say that it is absolutely ridiculous that people should choose to go around looking like letter boxes." well that's because they don't make the choice themselves, their men do. and those women that go around like "i wear it because i choose to do so!!!" jesus christ woman. you have a bad case of stockholm's syndrome

i think all of those were very obvious, if you are thin skinned then that isn't the joke tellers problem, i think i saw some comedian talking about it on a radio show before
2019-07-23 18:22
The first one for example, wasn't a joke. It was based off a study (not a very good one, I'm guessing) and he allowed it to be published as editor of the paper. The second one is borderline a joke, it was referring to Malaysians in their climate and related to their culture. Third one, yes, a joke. Sexist, but in my opinion quite funny. Fourth, yes a joke. The last one is also a borderline joke, he did mean it as in that he wouldn't like to see people in the headgear as it's suspicious and possibly intimidating. By borderline I mean it is veiled as a joke and easily laughed off, but does have undertones of what he really thinks in it too.

A small price to pay for independence. The only reason long-term finances would be worse outside the EU is gross mismanagement.
2019-07-24 04:46
1) even with a brilliant management they still need to sign a bunch of new trade agreements with countries outside of EU because these countries had agreements with EU, not with UK 2) many head offices (london was basically the one of the few financial "capitals" of EU) of transnational corporations will leave 3) look at this, can you even imagine what will happen in case of hard brexit to the manufacturers who were aiming to EU market? If EU doesnt sign a free trade agreement in a year, UK is fucked even more imgur.com/a/ktcfNdN I know you dislike The New York Times and Washington Post and other "leftist propaganda", but -8% in the first year and -10% in 10 years are quite common estimations even among center and right-winged economists. If you call this "small price" I don't know what is a big price for you.

1) Literally easiest thing in history. USA, Chile, Argentina, Australia are all lined up to renegotiate, and the close neighbours in the EU won't put up with no UK goods for long. 2) Some may leave, some may stay. Depends on the incentives the UK government offers. Very few of these companies pay tax, so it's only employment being affected - the workers in question can likely move with the companies in question. Finance in pounds still needs to be in the UK so it's not like the whole sector will move (yes I know this is simplified). 3) You know what happens? The size of the pie going to nations outside the EU increases - at least until the nations IN the EU decide they're missing out on good money for no good reason. Then, fair agreements are renegotiated. It's simple. I agree with the -8% in the first 3 years forecast, but remember: GDP is just a measure of expenditure, not welfare. The government can easily throw around subsidies and inflate that figure any time they want. It has no bearing on actual standards of living. The big price at stake here is further integration to the EU - an undemocratic, moralised state, disconnected from its constituents, with no accountability and with some incredibly scary plans for the world. If you call a little economic hiccup a big price to pay, then you've got your priorities wrong.

He wont choose that, public opinion of him would dip so much and i have no doubt that it will be blocked through legal proceedings and parliament. It for sure wont get through parliament (good majority of Labour and some Conservatives are against which is enough to block no deal). The only way he could get no-deal to be accepted is if an extension isnt found (unlikely as the EU want a deal) or the Queen intervenes (the most unlikely thing). Also he doesn't want no deal, he just wants people to vote for the fact he's trying to end the Brexit deadlock

2019-07-23 13:25
He won't do shit, would he want to be responsible for a large scale escalation with Iran as soon as he gets into office. Also, the UK isnt strong enough militarily to do shit.
2019-07-23 20:37
Not everything is a military response. The UK wields a large amount of diplomatic presence. Good set of reliable allies. Soon is to have a carrier that can project in the area although i dont think this tension will last that long. All the UK wants is the ships to stop being pulled aside in international waters, which (with its new European allies that are going to make a naval task force) should be able to do. He would want to start more hardline rhetoric and warning Iran not to do anything more, he will try to be more heavy handed diplomatically and will definetly explore more military escort options potentially involving Hunts idea of a European joint naval task force. Iran has shown that once a ship shows up they will back off.

Boris is a Bulgarian name
2019-07-23 13:35
Boris is also russian
2019-07-23 13:39
It is not en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boris_(given_name) Vladimir is also a Bulgarian name
2019-07-23 13:41
so it appeared in Bulgaria first but then it became popular in all slavic countries? Interesting. Also interesting that romanians have greek/christian names (changed a bit so that they sound 'romanian') , while Slavs have names their own names. I think that these days when you say that a name is 'bulgarian' means that it is a typical name for bulgarians or it is the only country where that name is used.
2019-07-23 15:21
Do you know what is more interesting? That Mircea the Great wrote his documents in Bulgarian and had the first name Yoan, the same name that all the Second Bulgarian Empire rulers had Dracula also had that first name - Yoan or Ivan
2019-07-23 17:13
Honestly I dont think so. Romanians used the cyrillic alphabet up until like 1800. Also I've been to Bulgaria like 4 times, and many words are similar. I guess Mircea the Great wrote his documents in old romanian which was very similar to bulgarian? Im not so 'passionate' about romanian history but I cant find anything about Mircea the Great being called 'Yoan' on the internet. And Dracula's name was Vlad.
2019-07-23 18:08
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mircea_I_of_Wallac.. It says Ioan Mircea, might be Ivan as well Well, clearly it is Ivan macedonia.kroraina.com/lm_da/lm_331b.jpg Look at this, that's a document of his son Mihail In the second row it says Ivan Mihail voevoda This is old Bulgarian and some of the words do not exist nowadays. I can still understand it
2019-07-23 18:19
What you mean 'Well, clearly it is Ivan'? On that wall it says 'Ion Mircea-vozvo' . I suppose vozvo means leader, as in romanian is voievod. We consider Ion the old form of 'Ioan'. I understand only a couple of words out of that document. I think that language (that you are calling old bulgarian) , we call 'Slavona' (supposedly the language from where all slavic languages derived). Documents in Romanian make no sense when no one outside the country knows romanian, right?
2019-07-24 08:09
It says Ivan Mircea Voevoda and Voevoda is not exactly a leader. And it is not Slavona, it is a Bulgarian language. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitola_inscription - here is another document translated to English Check the word "Iwan" in this document, you have the same word in Ivan Mihail voevoda document.
2019-07-24 09:54
dude can you read? It says Ion not Ivan. That thing that looks like W is 'otu', originally from the greek alphabet (the letter Omega) and it is pronounced like 'O'. EDIT: On wikipedia it says that Bitola is written in Slavonic, not bulgarian.
2019-07-24 10:47
And what is the difference between Slavonic and Bulgarian since I understand that script 1000 years after it's been written? Old Church Slavonic is a literary language having emerged when the Holy Scripture had to be translated into Slavic, late 9th century. It was based on vernacular Slavic dialects which later developed to Bulgarian. You can't change the fact that Mircea had a name similar to all previous Bulgarian rulers
2019-07-24 11:00
The thing is that you arent the only one. Macedonians, Serbians, Ukrainians and others also understand that. If you see romanian documents written in slavonic, it's because slavonic was the official 'orthodox language'. Of course that we have similar names, these names are religious and we have the same religion xd.

Answer is pretty simple, you dumb fuck.

It's not that hard to learn a new language if you already speak English, but how easy do you think it is for a person that doesn't speak English at all to learn German, French or Swedish?

It's over. Although, hey, at least he now thinks that climate change is a thing (publicly, privately it's almost certain he always thought it was real I think) unlike Trump.

Way better. Theresa May was forced out because she didn't want to accept reality on Brexit. Boris should be able to sort that at least.

For all the uninformed coming here, he has very little in common with Trump. They both are slightly conservative, and both are pretty provocative / have less PC attitude. Their background and rhetoric and policies rarely line up.

Arrogant and narrow-minded person. Really easy to control such people. They will spread any "truth" you want. It was obvious that some day they will put him in prime minister chair.
