    It wonít happen. At least I donít think so. I think she knows sheíll win, so then what? No deal here we come.

    • I desperately hope there is no delays to Brexit though.

        From and outsiders' perspective this all seems very pointless. To a point where it has become hilarious. Sad thing is, that many people will be affected by all this.

        UK tried, UK failed. Forget Brexit, stay in the EU. We need each other.

              Sorry, but that's not true. I believe nobody will benefit from Brexit.

                  What you all seem to forget is the UK has only been in the EU for a few decades. We opted in when it worked for us and have opted out when it stopped. We shall continue as we were - quite happy in our corner of the continent.

                    Yes we have chaos. Are we ignoring the issues around Brexit? Of course not - we are all fighting for the Brexit we all think is best.

                        • The UK pays more into the EU than we get back. Simple economics dictate the EU will be at a financial disadvantage once we leave.

                            The UK exports nearly £275 billion worth of goods to the EU and it imports over £340 billion worth.

                            Truth be told, we need each other - if you think the UK leaving successfully and in one piece doesn't have implications for the EU, you're not thinking intelligently. Especially given the rise of right wing politics across Europe.

                            Ultimately, we are just one country - albeit the 2nd largest economy in the EU and the 5th largest in the world - but if any country can make this work, it's the UK. And i think that worries the EU - that we can do it just fine, without them.

                              • The EU doesn't give in, so that must mean they don't worry too much.

                                Yes, best is if we stay together as we "need" each other.

                                But May (and Meninme) is the only one thinking it is a good idea to leave.

                                  Well the EU's refusal to budge has ultimately resulted in this vote in the UK - let's see what happens now.

                                  May doesn't think it's best to leave - May was a staunch remainer. May is simply delivering what a majority of the UK population asked for, that is her job as the most senior politician in the UK.

                                    I have said this before and will say it again - there is no advantage in the EU letting us leave in a comfortable way. The world is watching us and the EU knows itís future - in part - is dependent on other eurorpean counties not opting out too. The EU were never going to give us an easy exit.

                                      I was a remainer too. But I accepted the vote and judge the EU on how theyíve dealt with the fallout of that vote... and I havenít been happy with it.

                                              I have to agree here.

                                              Plus there were and still are a lot of untruths about the EU which poisoned so many ppl's believes.

                                              The ultimate goal is to reunite the continent. The UK has always been against that. The relationship between the USE and the UK needed re-evaluation. I hope that both entities stay closely connected bc otherwise it would be a shame.

                                                • people are so ignorant when it comes to the benefits of the EU. Sometimes I wish it would be dissolved so that every single one of those 27 member states crash and burn and realize that there is no return to how things were in the 1940s and 1950s when everything "was so much better".

                                                  An Europe without the EU - the common market and the Shengen area - would be a conflict ridden, economic hell hole like it was before that.

                                                    Right? As if it was as simple as "UK pays more into the EU than it gets back" especially nowaydays when most economies are intertwined and depend on each other and also depend on many, many other parameters other than costs.
