Azadi, your posts are looking more and more like you are just trolling us.  Could you at least once in a while stay on topic and contribute factual news or relevant opinions please?

Back to on topic discussion:

Poorer E.U. countries face the reality of Brexit and the strains that this will likely place on relations with the wealthier members of the Union.

The E.U. is trying to beat the U.K. and secure a quick trade deal with the U.S.A., forestalling President Trump's tarriffs threat.

Prime Minister Johnson has rejected the idea that the U.K. needs to adhere to E.U. rules on negotiating a new trade deal with the Union.  He wants a Canada style agreement with the E.U., not a Norway style pact.

Fishing rights seem to be an early flashpoint of Brexit.

Voices sympathetic to the Remain side contemplate "What if Brexit works?"

"No Deal" still very possible as relations between the negotiators seemingly fray.  The British press is miffed at the Prime Minister's office for it's Trumpesque preferential treatment of certain media outlets.

Fishing rights should be a flashpoint. We essentially let the EEC/EU loot us. In the whole sorry saga of our membership, no chapter is as tawdry and outrageous as what happened to our fisheries. We have, according to the current laws of the sea, something like 4/5 of the edible fish in Europe, but, through a premeditated, last minute grab before we joined, we were forced to share almost all of our fishing grounds with the community. The Spanish, in particular, have helped to devastate our fishermen.

I think an even bigger problem with the EU is that its policies have encouraged the weakening of nation-states which has fuelled the growth of separatism in regions like Scotland and Catalonia.

Looks like the E.U. aren't so warm and fuzzy towards the SNP and it's silly escapades.  Nicola Sturgeon is increasingly ridiculous.
