Walk away from EU now

Sunderland Echo - - Opinion -

The more I read the more de­spon­dent I get over these so-called Brexit ne­go­ti­a­tions.

The only thing to do with such an at­ti­tude is to leave on said date, take a hit and wait and see what they come up with.

We could save the money, find out ex­actly what they need and want, and then bar­gain with them over that.

At least we could or­gan­ise our bor­ders in­clud­ing those of North­ern Ire­land.

Surely ev­ery­one can see they are go­ing to use North­ern Ire­land as the weak spot, know­ing full well that a free trade agree­ment will negate the need for a bor­der as such.

The longer that goes on the more likely they will find ways of de­lay­ing every­thing else.

We need to stop this, nip it in the bud and walk away.

You can­not talk to the EU if mem­bers think they have any hope of suc­cess, es­pe­cially if half of the es­tab­lish­ment is plotting to help them.

Or­di­nary vot­ers are be­ing robbed of what lit­tle democ­racy we have left so please walk away now.
