Special place in hell' for those who promoted Brexit without a plan says Tusk

do you agree with Donald Tusk or do you think it's good that we had no plan for Brexit?


"European Council President Donald Tusk has said that is a "special place in hell" for those who backed Brexit "without even a sketch of a plan" as he met with Irish Premier Leo Varadkar in Brussels to make plans for a "fiasco" scenario where Britain leaves the EU without a deal"

It's the EU's fault as much as the UK's. Both parties should have realised that the provision of a backstop wouldn't prevent a breach of the GFA. They let the time limit of march 29 force them in formulating a text that doesn't hold.

If a plan had to be devised for this beforehand, brexit still wouldn't be realised. At least now a solution will be reached by means of force. That is what several on this forum have described as an initial period of hardship, after which prosperity will come. After march 29 a short period will be needed to decide this problem once and for all. Whatever the outcome, it will be an end to the irish issue. Let the irish fight amongst themselves, don't interfere as english, and winner takes all.

Apparently, as Tusk made the remark Leo Varadka commented with words to the effect that the remarks would upset the British media and Tusk laughed.

These Eurocrats say very little that isn't carefully calculated, I am sure Tusk will have had some hidden motive for saying it.

I would guess his remarks will harden the resolve of those who wish to leave the EU with or without a deal and I doubt that was his intention.

I suppose what should happen is that the EU rules do not allow article 50 to be triggered without a feasible plan for leaving.

And there should be a special place in hell for those who bully and deceive countries into believing that joining the EU is going to be beneficial....Perhaps for big business it will be...

Any sovereign member can leave, it doesn't need permission from the EU. Nor should it need it.
Article 50 provides two years to draw up a feasible plan. That plan is laid down in the withdrawal deal. Britain doesn't want it.
