Have been running around the City of London last few days. Here's an update."

"Merkel and Brussels have outright already refused an EEA+ agreement that gives UK migration control, passporting and single market access."

"What is passporting? All banks registered in UK have a "passport" that allows them to do business with whole EU. The City depends on it."

"Base case is Berlin and Brussels plan to insist on an EEA- (i.e. a worse deal than Norway) that excludes passporting, migration controls."

"This would however allow services to continue to have access to the singoe market. But not financial services. Mass migration continues."

"This is formal offer. But Paris is planning a turn of cynical brilliance - that could at a stroke smite London and restore Paris to glory."

"France cynicallly intends to offer Britain an EEA- that excludes passporting, but givs them a migration cap, and single market access."

"This is a brilliant move: "you get less Poles, but we want your banks." It would be in France's interests to encourage UK out to get banks."

France: "No to Bankers - No to Immigration". Politically the UK can't refuse this as its everything the UK public think they want.

It will kill the UK economy.

So the negotiations that Junckers said would never happen have started. That didn't take long.

Megaphone diplomacy is not the same thing as negotiations.

If there's any truth in this it's an exercise in concentrating minds.
Same thing, it's all maneuverings and position taking.

Everything is a negotiation.

Every speech and poster and soundbite during Britain's lunacy which started during their last GE.

Everything has led britain (no caps...) to this diminished and dim state.

Cameron lied about having a pair in hand to open the round and the bluff escalated.

Morons...

The best thing is for the UK to trigger Article 50 soon and call the EUs bluff.

Article 50 has yet to be triggered everything before that is posturing for positions.

You wouldn't want to look to that idiot for direction, he got more wrong in his life then he ever got right.

The UK wants to leave. France is helping them pack.
Then let them trigger art 50, 'cept Dave wants his replacement to be the one to lead them out.

Europe says No.

If the UK had any sense they would ditch the Brexit vote and stay in Europe. It is only advisory. Other countries have done the same thing- the world didnt end.
