Why a Hard Brexit Would be Disastrous for Britain

After the disastrous and misguided Brexit vote, which was the result of post-truth (link) politics, British politicians have reluctantly embarked on the long and treacherous process of negotiating a “deal” with the EU. Unfortunately for Britain though, the EU has all the cards, as they make up a significant portion of Britain’s trade, and are able to impose huge tariffs on Britain, so that the British can’t afford German cars anymore, and are forced to buy British, Japanese and American cars instead. Britain has nothing to offer in this deal other than money and concessions, in return for access to the open market and the free movement of people. Britain will have to work hard and pay a lot of money to get back the aspects of the EU that it already had.

After Brexit, progressive organisations such as the Guardian all of a sudden started caring about “trade” and “deals”, which they are normally against because they’re forms of capitalism. They argue that not only is a deal good in the case of Brexit, but that “no deal” would be the worst possible thing that could happen. If no deal is made, Britain would face a “hard” Brexit, in which it actually leaves every aspect of the EU, sending shockwaves across the nation and causing mayhem and chaos across the planet. Progressives advocate for a soft Brexit, in which Britain pays a generous amount of money to the EU for the privilege of keeping many, if not all, of the laws that Britain already inherits as a member.

The people of Britain may have voted for Brexit, but they never voted for a HARD Brexit. Many of them probably wanted a soft Brexit in which Britain remains in the common market, keeps the free movement of people and respects EU law, allowing the decisions of the appointed EU commission to override the British Supreme Court.

The fact is, the people of Britain didn’t want to leave every aspect of the EU. They just wanted to express their misguided anger at regulations governing the size of bananas and the quality of Belgian chocolate. These are the issues they were voting on, and they just wanted the EU to reform some of these laws. They didn’t actually want an actual Brexit in which Britain actually leaves the EU.

Join with the Accredited Times in calling on UK politicians to uphold the will of the people, and fight for a strong deal with the EU, that keeps all of the aspects of the EU that Britain already has. For the sake of future British generations, we must avoid a hard Brexit.

For the sake of the entire civilized world, we must stay in EVERY trade treaty and economic union that’s ever been formed.

If the USA does not continue to send manufacturing jobs to China, the world will end. The USA middle class will be CRUSHED. Trade treaties are CRITICAL and I know this because liberal leaning news organizations tell me so.

Trade treaties are even better when they are negotiated in secret.

Trav, it amazes me that even in the Current Year, people are still talking about limited government and self-determination. We are racing toward a unified, one-world global community, while all these detractors are literally terrorizing the well-intentioned efforts of such responsible organizations as the IMF and World Bank. I hate free trade but conservatives need to be punished for daring to set their own terms.

There is no such thing as a secret trade deal. Did CNN tell you that? Trade deals are semi-secret, just enough so to give insiders, cronies, sugar daddy’s, etc. the edge they need to CASH IN ahead of all the other poor suckers. GE was on the inside forever, until Trump. “No mas.”

And then another one, and another one, until the desired outcome is achieved. After that, full stop as people have spoken.

OMG BLM and drb6, You are geniuses. Here I had been thinking the solution was more votes for liberal voters, but you have truly come up with the solution.
If we progressives don’t like the way the election goes it simply is ruled null and void and another one is done. Eventually the right wing will get the message and just stop voting.
Of course we would only make the votes we don’t agree with as null. The ones we like we can carry over to the next round of voting. Like accrued interest.
Then as you say, Once we have control of everything we rule that the people have spoken and there is no need for anymore elections.

Thank you, but we have to be modest. This method is already widely used. In our town, when new taxes are not approved in year 1, city government waits 2 years and then adds $1 funding for suffering children to the tax agenda. If you do not vote for this, you are a RACIST CHILD HATING BIGOT!

It’s not who votes that counts; it’s how many times you call for and count the votes.

Well, Al Gore used this proposal until the evil racist Supreme Court “selected” George W. Busch to be the President, against the will of the people that the Florida Supreme Court was counting!

Why we even had a vote when Algore was the most qualified candidate to ever run for President is beyond me. He was so much better than GWB. Just like Hillary was better than Trump- why do we even HAVE votes anymore? They just let the freaking people do things that elites disagree with. As one guy in the top 1% said, it is time for the elites to declare war on the masses.

A hard br-exit or br-entry is not possible with low testosterone.

The vote should be seasonally adjusted to take into account individual voters’ expected remaining lifetimes. Many of those who voted to leave probably don’t have long to live and it’s unfair that the (remain-voting) young should be forced to live in exile from the wonderful EU.
