BREXIT – The “Way Forward” and Theme Song

I suggest that this is the only real “way forward”. T. May needs to realize her “Deal” is anathema. The M.P.s need to realize that there is NO “good deal” available (or even really possible as everyone wants something antithetical to the other). Essentially folks need a “moment of clarity” to realize that they are in a deadlock and all the possible “ways to escape” are bad.

What do you do when every choice in the game is a loosing move? Stop playing the “make a deal” game. The winning move is not to play the deal making game.

Just end it.

How do you end it? Leave. There will be many decades of optional negotiations with anyone and everyone in the world, including the E.U. Those negotiations can take place without a time limit, with no Sword Of Damocles hanging over your head. (AND with some $40-$50 BILLION kept in your pocket from not paying “dues” to a club that doesn’t respect you).

In this case I think there is much good advice in our musical heritage.

So what I propose is just that folks who want to end this, now, play this “Theme Song” at all times and places possible. Preferably all around Parliament. Daily. Hourly. Constantly…

Yes, it really is that simple.

There comes a point in all negotiations where you must be willing to just push back your chair and step away from the table (and the “deal”). This is that time. I’ve done a LOT of deals (many a year for decades). Nothing clarifies things to your opponent so much as saying “Well then, Call me if you change your mind. I’m needed at my next deal…”

So T. May has squandered her time on a pocket full of sunshine promises. There’s no need for the rest of you (us) to follow her down the drain. It’s been “the good fight” but time to lick the wounds and “move on” to the next gig. It’s time for the UK to come home. “I am leaving, I am leaving but the fighter still remains”…

No “deal”? “Well, it’s all right. everything will work out fine… Happy to be here happy to be alive…”

Then there’s those tens of £Billions you don’t have have to hand over as “money for nothing” and instead can “take the money and run”:

Sometimes the best wisdom is simple folk wisdom…

    Rule No. 1 of negotiation: let the other party talk. Rule No. 2: walk away when necessary.

    Heh, I’ve been thinkin’ The Traveling Wilburys, ‘End of the Line,’ and what about Credence Cleerwater, ‘Who’ll Stop the Reign?’

  3. A Regular Reader says:

    Your post is Tina Turner -Simply The Best – solution to our problem. If suggested back in June 2016 , perhaps we might have been freed now?

  4. A C Osborn says:

    The Elite have no intention of leaving.
    If the MPs actually had any principles, I know that is a ludicrous thought, all those in favour of Brexit should Resign and join the largest Brexit Party.
    Their numbers would be so high and they would have so much support they would by the Largest single Party in the UK.
    But they are all self serving liars annd cheats, all of those who have resigned from their parties are still stealing a £70K a year living from the electorate they are supposed to represent.

    With the court challenge on the legality of the Brexit Extension we will also see just how corrupt the Legal System is as well.

  5. A C Osborn says:

    You may have guessed that I am not the least bit upset over the Brexit Fiasco.

  6. rhoda klapp says:

    As ACO says, she is not even trying to leave. Even her pathetic deal is not a deal and is designed to allow reversal and re-entry as soon as they can get away with it. There are a lot of angry people here right now.

  7. Bill in Oz says:

    @ AC Osborn, yes I think you are right. If all the Brexit MP’s left their existing parties and formed a Brexit party to contest the next election..the will of the people could be put into effect. Neither Labor nor the Conservatives have any real desire for Brexit..And I find that remarkable as it was the Labour party heartland in the Middle & North of England which voted so strongly for Brexit. I guess Corbyn has his own ideological agenda.

  8. A C Osborn says:

    “I guess Corbyn has his own ideological agenda.”
    The really odd thing is that Corbyn has been Anti EU for just about the whole of his political career and when we finally get the chance of getting out he does a 180 degree turn.

  9. Bill in Oz says:

    Proruguing the Common is the only solution.
    The Queen could do that &
    Just let the ‘hard’ Brexit happen

    Only problem is that other woman May,
    Would probably stuff it up as well

  10. Steve C says:

    And now they’re working on a whole new way to make Britons’ votes irrelevant for evermore. How’s about a new law, giving the vote to every third-world hostile who has managed to get into the country, so they can simply swamp those “evil right-wing white bigots” who want their country back?

    You’d have thought that the Diane Abbots, the David Lammys, the Somali specimen proclaimed “mayor” of Sheffield and all the rest of the ghastly crew were already pulling Western civilisation down at a pretty good rate, but it looks like somebody thinks not. Well, I suppose it is only about ten years to 2030 and they must want to crack on with it.

    And astonishingly, there seems still to be a majority of Brits who have not yet realised that they are members of a people currently under genocidal attack, so there’s nobody to stop them.

  11. Steve C says:

    Also, the “We Are Already Out” case has made it to the mainstream media, though not yet as headline news:

  12. H.R. says:

    If it has penetrated anyone’s consciousness here to the point that it is noticeable, I believe this is my first Brexit comment on this or any prior Brexit thread.

    That’s because a) I’m not a Brit, ii) I don’t know all of the players well enough to keep them and their past and present positions straight, 3) I don’t know the applicable rules and laws, D) it’s pretty much impossible for me to come up with a cogent position on Brexit other than “Just leave already”, and V) I’d probably screw up any attempt at snark.

    So I just read and gape at yet another episode of Governments Gone Wild.
