REGARDING Brexit may I point out that from the start the UK set out red lines that precluded any of the compromise necessary for any realistic negotiation.

This reflected the same hubris that is displayed in the claim that " the EU will...need to wake up".

The trade secretary has failed to deliver any significant body of potential trade deals with other countries. This means that if we leave the EU without a deal the UK's then obviously urgent need will put it at great disadvantage in achieving good terms in any other trade negotiations.

It is indeed time to wake up but I suggest that it is the UK public that need to stop dreaming and realise what our actual position is and how these illusions of grandeur are allowing Party obsessed politicians to lead us to an even ruder awakening.
