Re: Deal before Year End?
I think the problem is that the three choices are:
Extension of transition.
'Deal' could indicate several situations: a deal involving our handing over our sea areas and various elements of our sovereignty, very similar to our present situation; or a deal ensuring our retention of complete sovereignty.
To clarify my own preference, I should prefer a trade deal similar to what the EU have agreed with other countries, such as Canada and Japan, in which they have absolutely no control of sovereignty, political or judicial.
If any other sort of 'deal' which would compromise the above, then I believe a 'no deal' would be the only acceptable choice.
As for an extension to the transition period, no way! Four years has been far too long already and this year's transition period has achieved absolutely nothing. Nothing whatsoever.
Who in their right mind could imagine an extension of this nonsensical situation would possible change anything, AND we'd have to continue to pay the EU for the same thing we have gained so far - NOTHING!
