I don't see this at all. I think you are seriously underestimating him, Even if he doesn't come out with what he and we want.
Sorry to raise this with you Glos- but there are millions of us who don't want what he wants at all. We want him to fail in leaving the EU without a deal and we still want him to fail in taking us out of the EU at all. . I know you will see us as just a set of moaning remainers- but a very substantial proportion of the population ( and its a growing proportion as well) would rather remain. And if he succeeds and the whole country turns to shit on November 1st and then for months after that, we'll point the finger at you and others who were hellbent on leave under any circumstances and say that you caused this. And there will be no hiding place. The country may have voted leave but not under the omnishambles that will come from Boris's no deal scenario. When will he listen? 27 countries are saying in unison that the deal has been agreed and its not changing. And it won't.
At some stage he'll need to start listening to them and not expect them to listen just to him.. I'm sorry to say it but he's deluded.
I am aware there are millions who don't agree, even without your emotive phraseology, but who is to say the change is all in one direction, and as much as those desperate to remain actually state? No polls will give a true story of the current situation especially not when taken from a few thousand in selected areas.
I would make one point though, and that I'm surprised that none of the people who have campaigned to remain are aware of their input to the shambles that now faces us. With their constant attacking of the referendum and subsequent manipulation of Paliamentary rules, even having a constitutionally neutral Speaker manipulate Parliamentary rules in their favour These people have contributed to the damage caused to the integrity of the government, and Parliament. We are now the laughing stock of Europe, and to some extent, the world. I'm sure when you translate that into hard cash, the Remainers have helped the country to lose a lot of badly needed investment, and future trade especially when supported by an obviously disingenuous group of politicians. We even have a political party who are actively campaigning to ignore the referendum result, when they actually voted for article 50.
Laying the current situation solely at the feet of those wishing to leave the EU is, to me, yet another outpouring of hypocrisy from people who prefer to accept their lives to be managed by the EU, rather than make their own way. Lets not forget, we joined the EU for trade, not to become part of a federal state run by Germany and France.
I know we will have problems, but I believe that in 3-5 years we will be stronger for it. If we can outlast the Fanny Mae financial crash, I genuinely feel that what is to come will not be the end of the world as some seem to think.
As I have stated before, I also want a deal of some sort, its only common sense, but if we give in to the EU again, I think our long-term prospects as a sovereign country, will at best be in name only.
