    I said 'practical not airy-fairy benefits.
    As for the we'll be better off argument, that is not standing up to scrutiny, especially if we leave with no-deal

    You seem to forget, europe has around 45000 miles of coastline compared to britons measily 14000 miles
    And of course, international water's are international, not boris's

    You also seem to forget that no deal means no deal, you cant cherry pick the bits you went.

    From what I've read, one of the reason why the UK is consistently failing to get the Brexit deal it wants, is because the UK wants free movement between Northern Ireland and the ROI, which for Ireland would be a breach of EU regulations.

    Yes, it seems they want borders except where they don't want borders.

    I read this and thought the post was from 2016 or 2017....this in 2020????

    Are you serious about how much we pay to the EU? The idea of paying 350 million pounds per week was debunked 3 years ago, the cost of Brexit itself is ever escalating and will be in the billions by the times its done, we have trade deals and now all european produce in the UK will cost even more.

    If you represent the typical Brit voter, no wonder we're in the mess where we have a dishonest PM who can't stop lying from day to day!

    So you want to close borders with Ireland and put up tolls and barriers there? How do you think your Northern Irish compatriots would react to that?

    I, too, have come across a number of Italians with a strange fondness for fascists and idiots.

    Change the subject again, why don't you?

    No answer to my question about tangible benefits of Brexit - just move diversion and a picture of the chief liar and Russian apologist

    You want a tangible benefit of Brexit?
    To weaken Brussels' gangs' power.
    There, easy as pie

    As my Mother used to say

    "Cut off one's nose to spite one's face"

    It is pathetic that that is all you can come up with.

    There is an Italian idiom too for that situation.
    Brussels has been pulling the rope so hard, that it broke.
    Meaning : the EU has wanted to push its project of a federal Europe, and Britain said: enough! I 'm out of it.
    ;)

    Maybe continental Europe doesn't understand that Europe does not mean US of E. Britain is an island.
    Italy too...sort of.

    Yet ... you still cannot name a tangible benefit of Brexit despite being asked on numerous occasions.

    ^^^^^

    One of the best ever speeches in the British parliament as Ed Milliband totally takes Johnson's bull**** apart. A glimmer of light as the government moves towards deliberately breaking international law.
