Brexit dealmakers playing poker
SIR, – It doesn’t need a PPE degree to realise that the Brexit negotiations are a waste of time and money.
The European Union depends on German and British money for its existence. No British money, no EU project, unless the remaining 27 members make up the shortfall – fat chance.
Trade between Britain and the 27 will continue, EU or no EU, they need our money, we need the work to keep employment levels up. Only a mug would pay for that trade. With the British cash cow drying up the EU has no option but stall and prevaricate in the hope their supporters can subvert the referendum result. Fat chance again.
A competent dealmaker would have the EU back to the Common Market roots leaving the German taxpayer to clean up the mess. Mrs May, please take all money offers off the table, pay only for services that benefit Britain and never never play poker with our money again. Ian Walker, Craigiebuckler Avenue, Aberdeen
