She is like a broken gramaphone record, her and Ian Blackford should both be put onto one of the remote islands to rot.
If at first you don't succeed you are clearly not cut out for it. Give up and move on.

Barnier's stance in the Trade negotiations :-

" . . . entails sucking Britain into megalomaniac defence projects, allowing Brussels to plunder Britain’s fishing waters, and blessing Britain with freedom for the small price of sacrificing its competitiveness. This “exceptional offer” is being gift-wrapped free of charge in the tangled red ribbons of state aid paperwork and taxation regulations."

and " . .  the EU gets more and more desperate. In a stumbling tribute to Orwellian doublespeak, its most ridiculous new wheeze is semantic. It is genuinely trying to get Britain to accidentally enslave itself by changing the meaning of basic words."

and "  . . . there is the oldest trick of the bureaucratic sociopath: the unflinching lie. My favourite peddled by the EU this week is that free movement must continue as the condition for any trade deal. Even though the EU has, in the Political Declaration, conceded the precise contrary. It is increasingly clear that Brussels is the new Theresa May of these negotiations. And it is finally heading for a rude awakening."

Well worth the full read IMO

I want to break FREE  ;)  Come on Boris !

"Berlin, though, knows that billions of euros of profit and millions of EU jobs rely on the bloc’s €125 billion UK trade surplus. If cool minds prevail over political spite, the EU has much to gain from a UK trade deal."

Get rid of Barmier - there's a chance then. EU - control freaks all so far but why not talk as Friends ? or will 'political spite' continue to rule . . . .

But I just see the Ayotollahs being unable to change - mai pen lai !

I have a solution to help Boris's trade negotiations with the EU. Fishing is the start point but in International Law, these are UK waters. The figure of Euro 39 billion comes to mind for the UK to charge the EU, for fishing in UK waters, with a quota reducing by 30% in 2021 and a further 20% in 2022, reducing thereafter by 10% pa for another 4 years - leaving a residual 10% of current levels ongoing, (offsetting shell fish catches etc,. by the UK in EU waters). Job done !    ;)

It is interesting that the EU want to "cherry-pick" fishing rights, after all the times the EU has told the UK not to cherry-pick. Hypocrites.

"As hard as Mr Johnson's request might be for President von der Leyen to accept, she and her colleagues need to decide if they actually want a deal. If so, their rigid red lines will have to change. But that would require them to compromise on their purportedly unimpeachable rules. If that cannot be done, EU businesses will pay the price from disruption to trade with the continent's second biggest economy."

This thread seems like a long lost Friend - here it is again :-

"If the EU wants a deal the solution is simple: fire Michel Barnier

Barnier himself has turned into the main obstacle. Replace him and the talks could get off to a fresh start–and still succeed before Christmas. After Britain left the EU, it was, to put it mildly, a slight surprise that Barnier was appointed to lead the trade negotiations. After all, he had hardly been a great success negotiating the withdrawal agreement. He massively overplayed his hand, making a series of demands so outrageous that no self-respecting country could ever accept them."

"Britain looks to Berlin to break Brexit deadlock

British negotiators are banking on German Chancellor Angela Merkel to unblock Brexit talks after Michel Barnier accused the UK of wrecking the chances of a trade deal with the EU. In July, Germany took up the six-month rotating presidency of the European Union, which allows it to set the bloc's policy direction until the end of the year. A senior UK source close to the negotiations said Mrs Merkel's reputation as a dealmaker on the European stage could be key to end the impasse".

Barnier can't go too soon for me, but I'm not sure I see a deal happening - who knows ?  8)
