No, the best way to leave is with No Deal. As for the rest of your post, it could have been written by a Brexiteer.Legal law states we do not have any obligations to the EU. UK looking fool hardy in negotiations not knowing what she wants. I don't see what's trust got to do with it as legally we are in the right. It's simply business negotiations. Beg to differ here.
It is merely payment for working out transition dues whilst the new arrangements worked out. What obligations cost £39bn?
Similar to golf club membership, we make annual payments to the club and once we leave, that's it. £39bn is a lot of money.
I'm still struggling with the £39bn for a withdrawal agreement that doesn't give us any future deal. EU says we must first leave before working out new arrangement. Ok so we leave first and keep our £39bn. I always thought that'll be money establishing some new trading agreement. Not fees to demonstrate intentions to start one.
They are playing hard ball game and given those terms I'd simply leave let the dust settle and then embark on some new arrangement if desirable otherwise WTO rules. Not ideal but better than paying £39bn for nothing.
I'm all for the EU and the deal we have now is the best one we're going to get and I really think Brexiteers, TM and Tories messed up big time. The referendum, the withdrawal agreement and our current predicament beyond any repair at the mo, imo.
Best way forward is to cancel Article 50 let the dust settle and UK to elect new leaders and allow course of events to unfold in whichever outcome transpires.
