Slim to none. The French are more likely to veto any extension, and it will not be politically wise to extend A50 with it's £1bn a month price tag for the UK. As desperate as the remaniacs are in parliament are to take "no deal" off the table, a lot more matters are in place than most people realise. Including an effective declaration of Universal Free Trade by eliminating about 90% of UK tariffs in the event of no deal.What's the over/under on any/all of V4 vetoing just for the lulz?
Even if various companies have begun their whinging and claiming they'll go out of business. Which rather suggests those companies are dead wood which need clearing out anyway.
Because it's done by international treaties. In essence. It's never a great optics matter to suddenly tear up agreements and deals on a whim, this is why negotiated escape mechanisms are in most treaties. A negotiated escape mechanism which is strangely lacking inside the Withdrawal agreement.Yes indeed. I'm looking forward to "crashing out without a deal" because when the world doesn't end, the salt and screeching from remainiacs will be excellent.
Unfortunately, I fear the fix is in and somehow there'll be a unilateral withdrawal of Article 50 at the last moment which, conveniently, the ECJ has said can be done.
Why we don't just go full Henry VIII and dissolve the European Union's properties and operations here I don't know. After all, he crashed us out of the Catholic Church without a deal and despite some minor disruption it turned out to be the right decision because we avoided the fallout from the French Wars of Religion and so forth. We also took back control of our laws because for once they were all made here rather than partly by an unaccountable bureaucracy in Rome.
Mostly because it's a blatant plot by May and Robbins to allow for the UK to be "outside" the EU for a bit, totally and completely decide it's horrid being in the big bad world, and then step back into Brussels
