Apparently Boris is about to walk away. Excellent news if true. Pity about four wasted years but companies have now had plenty of time to prepare.

Every company with even a modicum of common sense have set out plans for a no deal situation.

If yours hasn't it probably won't be around for too much longer, not because of Brexit but because its ran by idiots.

Contractor so I don't work for a company, other than my own but have have done quite a lot of work on brexit planning with a number of big companies over the last few years and the biggest problem has always been lack of clarity from the government and when the point would come that they would have to ignore the chatter and make a unilateral decision to assume a no deal.  The problem however is cost, do you spend millions to move business and people abroad, reconfigure processes and systems on something that might not happen, the last 4 years of messing around have been a complete and utter fuck up for any business that trades with or in Europe.

BTW - I've always thought that if we are going to have Brexit it should be no deal or a very good deal for the UK otherwise what was the point, if we get it right there are some definite upsides in the longer term.

I think there will be a deal, it just wont be a very good one. There will be a bit more chest puffing about fish which nobody on either side is really bothered about, (think it represents 1% of our economy and 0.1% of EU's) and then a deal will be made which ties us in to most of the EU constraints we previously had.

Our fishing industry has shrunk to those levels because of the EU, it can grow massively if we have only British ships fishing British waters.
The industry is worth 4bn Euros to the Dutch, 10bn to the French and 9bn to the Spanish. Throw in the Belgians, the Irish, the Germans etc. and it is certainly something they're "bothered about".

The Dutch fishing industry might be worth 4 billion but I'm guessing not all of that that is done in British waters? Undoubtedly Dutch and Spanish fisherman will be a hit hard if Britain locks down its waters but in the bigger picture of trade neither side going to let fishing stop a deal.

You are right there is a potential big opportunity for a new UK industry but if we got exclusive fishing rights of our waters we wouldn't have the vessels to catch them, or the industry to process them. So we could build that but it would take time. Also about 80% of fish caught in British waters, regardless of who catches them, goes to European tables. So we would then need to process and export that fish to the EU  so a trade deal would be needed. The problem in saying only British boats can fish British waters is then the EU would implement similarly protectionist policies.

Load of Bollocks. You're telling us, that we as a nation don't have the capacity to create fleets or processing plants to expand a potential booming industry again?
If the EU don't want our fish then we create a new market with a different customer base to work from. It will take time and with it growth while stocks increase after over fishing. The problem with the EU is, they are treating us like we are still a  member and not an independent sovereign state.
It won't matter anyway, in 5yrs the EU will be no more, and good fuckin riddance to the cunt.

We donít need a fleet, we can charge the EU companies who fish it. Itís worth up to £20bn and if the EU arenít bothered why are they making such a fuss?

Regarding the fish,  we just dont eat enough of it anymore.
The frogs, clogs, spics and micks can all be free to fish our waters, thats never been in doubt.
But its on OUR terms now, not the fucking EU.

At the end of the day, the EU have been milking the cash cow (UK) for all it's worth, and the bull (British public) has got it's back up and raised its horns!  The farmer (Govt) is trying to prevent the cow from being milked dry and the greedy fuckers drinking the milk (EU) dont like semi skimmed!
