It makes sense to sort out trading and social arrangements for the future, but bills of billions for vague, un-accounted and possibly corrupt E.U. finances of the past are on shaky legal ground. Sorting that out could keep lawyers busy for years.

Again it's very simple really -. There are only 3 net contributors to the EU coffers. We are the second biggest at around £10 billion per annum. Why would they want us to leave????? The Tory Party have a larger 'remain' camp in its ranks than a 'leave' camp - why would they want us to 'leave'????? To satisfy the electorate and not be seen as 'undemocratic' both organisations have to 'appear' to be making the best of a bad job whilst fishing around for the best solution that does the least damage to all. That is what is taking place -.
The Tory Party don't want another dubious General Election at any time soon. Certainly not for at least another two years therefore another four years of wrangling will suit their programme and another £40 billion in the EU coffers will keep them afloat whilst they re-jig their internal finances. What's not to understand. Anything else (other than a grand miracle or catastrophe) is not on the cards. Unless Hammond, Hesiltine and Clarke drop dead in the meantime. Evil or Very Mad

The London government looks to be more financially and politically engaged with the E.U. than it is with the north of England. Is that a statement of the obvious?

Yes - and by this time probably known to a greater percentage of 'northerners' than was at first thought. But it is of course 'logical'. London is a cosmopolitan city full of immigrants and free-roamers and people who deal exclusively with Europe. All, to a greater degree, make a very good living from the EU or European enterprises - so what's the surprise?? The 'City' is the world's most propitious financial centre accounting for over half the world's financial dealings and closely allied to the European capitals - so what's the surprise??

Brexit and the EU are a symptom of 'division' and not just here in the UK. There's the 'doing quite nicely thank you' and the 'done bugger all for 40 years damn you' and like all organisations small or large there are those who do well out of them and those that don't - so what's the surprise??

Apathy and lethargy the two silent sins - that's Brexit - and will be the end of the EU also if they don't very quickly get their act together over there. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes
