We a hope for the year tobe a better one and we do this every new year’s eve as if by agic we believe or hope all will go away and the new year will be free of problems. and every year we are wrong, but that does not stop us from hoping ad dreamig a better tomorrow and what is wrog with that? you may ask. well a lot is wrong and I will explain later . This year will be exactly the same as the last one , virus stillon but nolock downs the torries still in power how is this possible I wonder if any other country have a political problems like the UK people will be on the streets protesting and demanding something better to be done, three prime ministers all disaster from the liar number 1 to number 3 and some still hope we are doing better than before. what a joke
England never been so bad they were better in 1974 muchbetter than now, Brexit showing its real face now even those who voted to leave they regret it big time, the government regret it as well but they play it tough hoping for miracles but miracles are for the faithfulones not them.
Behind our backs the tallk to join the single market takin place slow but steady if Europe says yes to re-join they will but there is a problem.
Europe is better off without the UK and I do not think they will APPROVE A COME BACK, AS ALAYS IT IS GOOD TO HOPE AND DREAM.
The table below compares the main options, based on existing arrangements the EU has with other countries – and the option of leaving the EU with “no deal” in place. It looks at how the potential future deals would compare with the Prime Minister’s red lines, and what they might mean for the UK’s ambition to maintain “the freest possible trade” and “as seamless trade as possible” with the EU.
Norway option: Staying in the EU Single Market and leaving the Customs Union
would mean full access to the Single Market for both goods and services, but the UK would have to continue to abide by the EU’s four freedoms, including freedom of movement. It would have to accept the EU acquis and regulations, without having a say on what those rules might look like in the future.
The UK would be subject to the European Free Trade Association Court (EFTA) rather than the ECJ (though that court follows ECJ judgements).
The UK would be free to pursue its own independent trade policy, though in practice Norway, along with other countries in the EFTA, often negotiate as a bloc.
Turkey option: Leaving the EU Single Market and EU Customs Union, but creating a new customs union with the EU.
This would ensure tariff-free trade for goods covered by new customs union, but mean applying the EU’s common external tariff for trade to those goods imported from other countries.
Following the Turkey model would eliminate most checks and controls for industrial goods, but would still mean businesses had to comply with varied border documentation, which does not lead a seamless and frictionless border.
Accepting the EU’s common external tariff would also constrain the UK’s ability to strike new trade deals and require the UK to comply with substantial numbers of EU products regulations.
Scotland is in Great Britain. It shares a border with England, but it is not in England. The capital of Scotland is Edinburgh. Scotland has a population of over 5 million.
It was an independent country until it joined with England and Wales to form the UK in 1707.
Although English is the language of Scotland there is also another official language called Scottish Gaelic which is much older than English. It was the original language of the area before English.
Today only 58,000 people speak it. Although politically, Scotland is part of the UK it does have some independent political power.
Wales is in the west of Great Britain and is part of the UK. It has a population of 3 million. The capital city of Wales is Cardiff (It’s where I come from! – Chris).
People in Wales speak English and many people also speak Welsh which is very different and older than English. Street signs in Wales are written in both languages. Wales has been politically linked with England since 1542]
. Wales was an independent country until it was defeated by the English army.
Wales has some independence in making it’s own laws, but it is still very much part of the UK political system
The UK and EU are set to begin trade talks after the European Council in March 2018. The two sides hope to agree a framework for their future relationship by October, which will inform the passage of the withdrawal agreement in the European Parliament and the UK Parliament.
Ahead of these talks, the UK is being pressed to set out what it wants this future relationship to be.
The Prime Minister has made two speeches, setting out her vision for Brexit: the Lancaster House speech in January 2017, and then her Florence Speech in September 2017.
Both speeches made it clear that UK plans to leave the EU Single Market and the Customs Union. But neither went in to detail on what relationship the UK would like to negotiate in place of the current EU membership.
Groups in Parliament are arguing for the need to “soften” Brexit, and to give more priority to the economy over cutting migration or insisting on leaving the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice (ECJ).
The Scottish Conservative leader, Ruth Davidson, has argued for an “open Brexit”, while Chancellor Phillip Hammond has called for a “pragmatic Brexit”.
Others, including George Osborne and Nigel Farage, say that the Norway option of leaving the EU but joining the European Economic Area (EEA) might be on the cards.
Daniel Hannan MEP suggests that we could follow the Swiss model of multiple bilateral deals. Some business people argue for staying in the EU Customs Union, at least in the short term, to avoid the cliff edge and minimise disruption to supply chains.
tHERE ARE LOT#S OTHER OPTIONS TO JOIN eUROPE BUT SOME LIKE IT TO SEE THE uk FLOATIG IN THE OCEAN NOT HAVING ANY DIRECTION , WHE TH EWIND BLOWS AT A CERTAIN DIRECTION SO THE ISLAND FOLLOWS.

Wha’s the difference between the United Kingdom, Great Britain, and England? Don’t worry if you don’t know, lots of people get confused by the three names. Here we take a look at the differences between them.
The United Kingdom is in itself a country that is made up of England, Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland. It’s official name is “United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”.
It has one government based in London and has one currency: the pound stirling (£). The UK is a constitutional monarchy with Queen Elizabeth II as the head of state. The capital city of the UK is London.
Great Britain is an island which is made up of three counties: England, Scotland and Wales. Great Britain is the political term describing the political union of the kingdoms of England, Wales and Scotland made on 1 May, 1707. Northern Ireland is not part of Great Britain.
England is one of the four countries that make up the UK and one of the three that makes up Great Britain. England is the largest country in the UK with a population of 51 million. London is the capital of England
Northern Ireland is part of the UK, but it is not in Great Britain. Northern Ireland can be found in Ireland (which is the island to the west of Great Britain). The capital of NI is Belfast and it has a population of under 2 million
. It became a part of the UK in 1921. Ireland is divided in two parts; NI is part of the UK while the Republic of Ireland,
in the south, is an independent country with its own laws, government and currency (€). Although English is the most common language, there are also Irish speakers in NI.
