I guess they've been watching Borgen, hence the name?

No Open Skies agreement means no flights to and from UK from EU and US - only eight months left to get an interim agreement on that one!

In a nutshell: business has an uncanny knack of adapting to overcome issues, including those that Remoaners say are likely to lead to the end of the world as we know it.

Institute of Economic Affairs say a post-Brexit trade deal with the EU is 'desirable but not essential':

As 'experts', I'm sure they haven't a clue what they're talking about  ;D ;)

Parity between the Euro and the Pound.  Who would have thought the onset of leaving the EU would make life so much easier for tourists and companies trading with Europe!

Yes, tourists and exports on the increase, EU migrants on the decrease - good news (well, if the figures are believable).

This is excellent. Highlighting the catastrophic approach to the Brexit negotiations by the UK Government...

More negative ninnyism.
Outside of the actual negotiations nobody knows what is really going on. Probably the same inside them too - on both sides.

The EU need to stop concentrating on what they want to screw out of us. We're leaving that's it.

I think the EU is thinking exactly the same thing about the UK.

Three islands which are in the British Overseas Territories have been flattened by Hurricane Irma and most of the buildings destroyed, looks like the EU will assist them and hardly a peep from our Govt yet... I'm disappointed in truth
