    Brexit negotiation poll


    2 Not allowed!
    If this gets put in with the other Brexit thread fair enough but as a separate poll

    How do you think negotiations are going ?

    (Maybe by only voting on this and keeping comments on the main thread we may get some results ?)

      Going as badly as expected, expect a cliff edge no deal as May can't satisfy the Brexiteer wing of the party.

      I'm a reckless optimist but even I thought it was going to be a total cluster**ck with the Muppets we have negotiating for "our side*".

      Although I was desperately hoping I'd be wrong (reckless optimism) it's actually going worse than I expected.

      And this is it in a nutshell. Just an internal Tory squabble that's got way, way out of hand.

      Of course it's going badly. The Brexiteers were deluded from the outset by insisting the EU DIDN'T hold all the aces.

      It will turn out that they're wrong, and we have far more to lose by no deal than they do. Who knew?

      It won't matter to Fat Boris or Jacob Poncemby-Smythe of course, they're both multi millionaires who don't need to bother with this "job security" nonsense. It's one for the proles and picaninnies I suspect, eh Fat Fella?

      We have incompetent clowns negotiating who are bumbling and blundering their way through to 'no deal'.

      There was an opportunity there for a win and a decent future for the country with a large dose of pragmatism, but it's slipping away fast.

      You have to laugh at their hapless efforts, really, or else you'd cry.

      Totally this, and at the end of it I can bet it will be "Well you can't blame us for trying, blame the EU".

      Totally this, although we are hampered by the fact we are one of the major net contributors. Can you imagine if Poland or Bulgaria wanted out, their feet wouldn't touch the ground, and they certainly would not receive payments from Brussels for the following years, just because the EU had committed the money
