Is all the confusion over Covid enabling the government to sleep walk into a no deal Brexit, which is what they wanted all along.

Sadly it's looking like it. Sad I really hope not...

They aren't sleep walking into it, they are actively gunning for it.

52% don't you know.

Fucking arseholes who voted for it deserve everything they get, but we have to suffer too.

I don’t know why I am surprised but it looks to me as if Boris lied about getting a good deal.

The government isn't sleep walking into no deal. Just because the media aren't incessantly talking about Brexit doesn't mean that nothing is happening or trying to happen. We can't get to the 'oven ready deal' which is sitting there already because the EU insist on us agreeing to let them keep fishing our waters and abide by loads of their rules that they have never asked any other country to do before they can have a trade deal. The EU 27 are meeting for two days this week let's see if they come up with some compromise.

In that case we were mislead.

In what way Pixxie7

We were told that Boris had negotiated a fantastic deal, he clearly hadn’t.

Doubletrouble99 is untroubled by evidence of government malfeasance. The agreement on the table is the one Boris signed off. Apparently without reading, since he now says it's terrible for Britain. He's right there, but it's entirely his doing.

Europe have bent over backwards to let our dear govt hang themselves with their own rope. Unfortunately that hangs the rest of us too.
