Brexit: no-deal is better than trashing democracy
We can now see that when Theresa May said “no-deal is better than a bad deal”, what she really meant was that no-deal was not just worse than a bad deal but was in fact her personal red line.
This was singularly unfortunate, since it was obvious from the start that the EU would never agree to anything that would enable Britain to do what the Brexit vote intended it to do: become competitive and prosper.
Since the EU is a protectionist cartel designed to stifle competition and freedom from its diktats, no-deal Brexit was always the only show in town.
