Did they sign a sanity clause?As the EU kept telling us, "nothing is agreed until everything is agreed". The divorce bill was part of the deal. If there's no deal, there's no deal. If the EU wants to see its billions, it has to agree to a deal with us. Simples!
Or breach of existing contracts.I would say EU gave UK funds to repair roads in the North East. It feels like a bond.From whom? This is not about bonds.
I didn't live in London in the 60s. The only acid we got our hands on was from test tubes.Paul missed the 60s by a few years.Cuch dropped so much acid in the '60s that he sees dimensions that no one else sees!
It will be tit for tat.It will take forever. Yuge delays. Like Wagner operas, thrilling overtures and mind-numbing half-hours. It will be a winter of our discontent. At least Christmas will be a welcome interlude.I think the issue of the exit bill will not go away with a no deal crash-out (the "do and die" scenario). Come early November, there will be a rather desperate need for a whole range of deals and agreements, and one can be reasonably sure that the EU will not have forgotten about it. To the extent that sovereign nations can make legal commitments to other states, it would seem that the UK has made a bunch of them to the EU, but some are undoubtedly more robust and endurable than others. You'll need a lot of popcorn for the full-length version!
