Okay playing devils advocate: The deadline has naturally come to an end now anyway. Do you really think it’s bad that someone is saying enough is enough now? The uncertainty of Brexit has caused a lot of business closure and job loss. It seems like ctionnis needed more now than ever. Do you not think there’s just still too much fear overreacting because of uncertainty (which was always going to be there as it’s a big but not necessarily bad change)? Do you not think this will be short term and better deals can be arranged (like many other countries have now)?
*action is needed now
The problem with this is that its advocating that forcing the UK to leave is a better choice than having the UK choose to leave. The UK can leave anytime it wants to, it just have to have one single vote in parliament which is elected by the people. However since this has obviously not happened its the same thing as saying the UK does in fact not want to leave right now.That is also ignoring the fact that leaving the EU is not actually guaranteed to be the result of going past the deadline. The EU can't actually throw a country out and the only group that has the power to leave inside the UK is Parliament which again has not voted for this. Article 50 which this timelimit is attached to is not an agreement to leave but just a statement of intent. In other words it should technically not be possible to leave because the time limit ran out, it would technically just destroy the cooperation of the EU to help the UK leaving.As for Brexit itself much of the fear was spread because the experts warned of catastrophic change and so far they have only been proven correct so a certain amount of fear is certainly warranted. Another problem is that there is still no plan for what they are going to do after leaving or even how to secure basic necessities such as food, medicine and other things. Looking into the future there is no one who has explained how this would help the UK in the long run. The EU had over 100 trade deals with countries all over the world and they were secured by the best diplomats on the planet. The UK itself barely has any diplomats left and would have to train a whole new generation of rookies to even begin establishing new trade deals and no one is even claiming they will be anywhere as good as the ones they enjoyed with those same countries while in the EU.
sadly its exactly where we are all heading
