without common market participation the UK will need to turn into a tax haven to attract economic activity

I’m not sure that they can. Dublin is the go to in Europe for that. Latest estimate is there’s about a trillion euro gets funnelled through here annually by all kinds of corporations and funds to avoid tax as we’ve stupid but purpose built loopholes to allow avoidance.

Looks like a deal is to be announced.
It’s a piss poor deal for the British and Boris is going to have to scramble to find a way to bluster and blag and sell it as a victory.
How does a PM stand in front of a country that is sick of him, And disgusted with him and his party, and sell a deal which makes his country poorer, destroys its economy, brings millions of job losses and cuts off all access to its citizens being able to travel live or get educated in European countries, as a victory?

That’s what the frantic bullshitters are trying to compile into a speech, right now this very moment.

So, there's basically a customs border between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK now? United Ireland here we come

Customs checks in the Irish sea, not on the border on the island, from what I've read quickly this morning

Customs checks east west NI to GB.

NI remains In the single market. It’s effectively an economic United Ireland.
Now just to make it official. That’ll take a couple years though.

It’s certainly the beginning of the end of the UK

Here’s the big hits.
They pulled out of Erasmus. British kids won’t be able to study abroad. It’s just sickening and all so pointless and self defeating.

Surely this is the moment the UK will sink into the ocean because of Brexit.

at least when the U.S. went full-retard populism 4 years ago most stupid policies can be reversed post-election

England went full-retard populism 4 years ago and now there won't be a UK anymore

You just distilled it all down into a perfect nutshell. It’s awful.
Not one thing. not one, will be better for Britain after this.
But hey. Sovereignty! As if that’s some quantifiable tangible quality that will improve people’s lives somehow.

I’m gutted for all my friends and family there right now. And for Scotland and Wales.

Northern Ireland and it’s future has been abandoned by the British. As evidenced by their pulling out of Erasmus.

Irish government steps in.

well if there is a silver lining here it will be for an independent Scotland and a united Ireland, looking back 5 years from now, as members of the EU

but England becomes a Russian client state

You can freely laugh at this given you’re all at a remove.

But this is happening. The DUP campaigned for it. And now...
It would be hilarious if it didn’t cause chaos for every single person and business in Northern Ireland
