Although as I posted on FB;-

Brexiteers are now saying "No deal is better than a bad deal"

What the fuck are they talking about?? There's no such thing as "no deal" because no deal means falling onto WTO rules (they hope). It's just that WTO rules are the default worst case option. They're what we  make deals in order to to evade.

So ANY negotiated deal is going to be better than no deal, which is really the worst deal.

These free trade fundamentalists are fucking insane.

And the problem is that we have enjoyed a period of such long term stability, gifted to us by those who learned hard painful lessons from more turbulent times, that we now have leaders who are too careless of what they break because they never learned any better.
