What Brexit Deal Do EU Countries Want? - Brexit Explained

  • Published on Oct 11, 2018
  • Our viewers asked us to make a video which runs through what every single EU nation wants from the EU/UK brexit deal. They asked, we did. So here is a breakdown of what individual EU countries want from Brexit.

    This is not good. I repeat to have access to single market you have to pay membership fees ok! So you don't want to pay you are out. France have paid the UK rebate since Thatcher for UK to come in after de gaulle said no. So happy to be European without uk which will be desunited soon and poorest to not trade on euro derivatives and bonds. City will be cut in 2. Lol

    I have today been reviewing the EU Commission's negotiating strategy (or in other words, the priorities upon which each of the EU27's future trade relationship with the UK will be negotiated against regardless of if or not is is convenient to their own interests).
    It looks and reads like a 17 year old Business Studies A Level Student first Microsoft Power Point project.
    There really isn't a lot in there except for the pathological repetition of the term "Level Playing Field" with this being broken down into three areas : Employment, Environment and Corporate Taxation.
    There is quite evidently a great deal of fear of a highly competitive UK in Brussels and they are shitting in their pretty pink panties about it.
    Now whilst I can see some mutual benefit in shared minimum standards on Employment and Environment agreed on the basis of like for like reciprocity, having the same for Corporate Taxation is something that really doesn't interest us since our post-EU vision is that of a low-tax high-intellect economy. So thanks but no thanks on that one, it isn't something we would value.
    The focus must, and no doubt will, be on zero-tariff zero-quota Free Trade, again agreed on the basis of like for like reciprocity.
    Anything else is just bum fluff, so keep it simple.

    Germany is in recession so if I was the UK I would demand that all BMW 3 series right hand drive production is moved from the failing South Africa to England along with Mercedes C series and Audi A4 producton which also comes from South Africa with a failing electricity supply and a terrorist government . Or else tariff time will ensue . Who cares what that lesbian brussel sprout is spouting on about anyway we'll be dealing with the ADF shortly . I'd prefer a WTO Brexit . Otherwise known as a no deal Brexit by libtard remainers.

    Great video, although I'm afraid you've been misinformed about popular opinion on the whole concept of the EU. Here in Spain most people know the thing to be a farce. We are, more or less, of the opinion that regulations cut free will (though you'll struggle to find any libertarians here), therefore disabling diplomatic relations. Long story short: EU countries can't have the trade policies they want because the EU dictates the terms. Same goes for basically every aspect of the EU: it undermines the agency of spanish government to the point where the right wing shuts down any debate by saying "let Brussels decide", while the left (and the extreme right) is saying "If the brits get out, we're next in line". This is mainly because spanish voters can see the blatant disconnection between their vote and the political agenda of our parties. You see, this EU concept might work for a union of about 10 culturally related neighbouring countries, but here in Spain there is no democratic culture (our WW2 era dictatorial regime ended when the motherfucker died of old age, ffs) and we know for a fact that our politicians are just there for the money. Literally, the more you learn about the political landscape in Spain, the more you ask yourself how on earth did someone think it was a good idea to put Spain at the same level as the rest of western Europe. EU funding gets literally stolen in institutionalised schemes designed to make the numbers tell the story of a struggling, unruly population, when in reality our politicians are the most corrupt people you can find in the entire continent. Don't get misguided by what Spanish "representatives" say in public: the don't even represent their own household.

    I wish Canada thought this hard about deals we make with other nations in our own continent.
    The EU might be able to make deals with Canada and I suppose the US that the UK can't on it's own.
    I guess I'm interested in what trade Deals Canada will be able to make across the pond.

    Blame games, it is everyone else fault that you don't have jobs or are not moving into a "new skills century". May and her party does nothing but cut services, raise your taxes and is a "do nothing" government. I have signed more petitions to keep your basic health clinics open. To restore things like "detectives and terrorist" watching Police units. You didn't have working fire trucks for the recent Grenfell Fire. All things were overseen by May. Plus it seems you're on a path to destroy a tentative peace with the Irish. This all smacks of "greed, bigotry, and elitism". Like the U.S. you've convinced the "low intellect and low skills" that all this is the fault of everyone else and pity you, you pay too much. The "no money" games, you've got plenty and it is all a lie you've fallen for. Your "Queen" is one of the richest women in the world, but she won't feed her poor or make sure her police have the right amount of detectives to keep her people safe, now that is special!

    Legislation and Regulation wouldn't be an issue for relations between states if the EU didn't have the authority to rule over its members; taking away their self-governance in exchange for bloc-benefits. The Bloc should have never been about ruling over Europe and always been about allowing individual nations in Europe to work towards achieving common aims and encouraging democratic cooperation.

    The EU is going to get the house, the car, the bank accounts and some sweet alimony out of this divorce. The UK is going to have to move back into the folks basement for a while.

      Basically as if one of your independent states leaders would fear- and hatemonger the states population into deciding to leave the union for very dubious reasons at best. The problem is that a lot of people in Britain seem to be unhappy with the way Britain is run and inexplicably (and incorrectly) believe that the countrys issues are the EUs fault and that exiting the EU will magically solve all their problems.

    It’s not about money. It’s about faith. Britain can leave and EU will survive because it was always peripheral to the union. But if France or Germany leaves then it’s immediately game over.

    Kind of shame, there are already some big business leaving UK because it would be too expensive to deal with trade. There's already 6% reduction at investments in UK. It just makes trading harder and negotiation position of UK worse.

    The fact that the EU fears giving a favourable deal to the UK because it might cause other members to want the same and thus cause the breakup of the EU just highlights how much crap stuff member states have to tolerate to benefit economically and how unsavory many EU citizens find basic EU ideology. If the EU was really sure that member states were fully on board with the project ideologically, they would let us go mad on cherry picking as we Leave and wouldn’t mind at all, they would be confident in the strength of support their member states have in the project beyond simple economics. I also think there are a lot of mixed messages from the Remain side and the EU - on the one hand they paint the UK as a rubbish economically insignificant nation whose exit will not be a problem at all for the rest of the EU, but in the same breath our military / security capability will be a big loss and also our departure seems to have a potentially very damaging indirect effect on the economies of other member states. Which one is it?!

    @TLDR News +TLDR News Fact alone, that UK is not negotiating with unified party, says A LOT about EU. And don't be bothered about Poland - Poland has nothing to say, no leverage, nothing. It will do what is told. Poland will have to absorbe it. And those called "structural founds" are actually ON PAIR, IF NOT SMALLER, than money send by migrants direclty! Not to mention, direct transfers are far better used. Also EU does not offer ANY DEFENCE - and I didn't hear that UK is leaving NATO anytime soon. NATO is not EU, you know.... Poland, and other countries except France, will be screwed becasue Germany will become de facto hegemony in EU.
