"UK faces prospect of endless negotiations with the EU post-Brexit"

Chris Johns Wrote:How many times can we say “next week’s emergency EU Brexit summit will be critical”? How many more times can we say “the events of the next few days should reveal much about the Brexit endgame”? If the past is any guide to the future, there is, quite possibly, a lot more of this to come. 

The exhaustion evident on all sides is now an added risk: it’s not just the Brexiteer ultras that want this to stop. Plenty of voices, in Paris and Brussels in particular, now suggest that the European project risks great harm from a Brexit process that lingers seemingly without end.

As a brit who's lived in Ireland for many years, Johns has a useful perspective.

Quote:Whatever happens next, the British have entered a permanent state of negotiation with the EU. 

Which reminds me: I've renamed one of my cats "Swiss" because she spends her time scratching at the back door to get in and then runs up the garden when I open it...

When Swiss and Brexit have kittens, the world will really become crazy.

As anyone with more than one cat knows, if you open a door, two cats will never go through it in the same direction. One will come in; one will go out. Open it again and the same two cats will move in the opposite directions.

I bet this information isn't widely available in the mainstream media in the UK before the EU elections !

Just how bad and undemocratic is the British system ? As a Brit I am personally affronted by the gall of these people.

Reesbog, your system is very bad and very undemocratic. The thing is, you the British people have to DO something about it. Nobody else can do it for you.

Lib Dems would win general election if it was held tomorrow - poll  SkyNews 31May19

Quote:Following impressive results in the European elections, the resurgent party have pipped the Brexit Party to top spot in a YouGov survey carried out for The Times.

Something like this should have happened in the last election, now Brexit(?) has evolved to Brexit no deal.
The poll does not forsee a majority, has we know the English are not familiar with sharing anything.

As I live in France and have done for over 20 yrs I have no influence on the choice of electoral system employed, but I agree with your sentiments.

Good then, the French election system is really quite bad and needs to be changed.  Wink

As that is as far as judgements of value go, I'd like to know how bad the French election system is , compared to other EU countries'.
