- BBC: 80 % of economy is service sector. Out of 5 known post-brexit EU trade models, Norway and Switzerland models are largely similar to present (free movement and contribution to EU budget required); others (Canada, Turkey) do not cover services. Singapore and Hong Kong models have no tariffs and probably too open for UK (and perhaps not sufficient for financial services)

- UK voted for Brexit – but is there a way back? , THe Guardian, 29 June, 2016
- Few UK politicians – fearful of challenging the verdict of an already angry electorate – will articulate such an argument [for second referendum] in public. But Jeremy Hunt, the health secretary, has boldly made the case for a second referendum or another general election on the negotiated terms of exit. Robin Butler, the former head of the civil service, has suggested the same.
- Parliament Early day motion 243, "Referendum On Agreeing The Terms Of The UK-EU Exit Package Or On The UK Remaining In The EU". At present, 5 MP supported; may or may not be debated.
- Petition 'EU Referendum Rules triggering a 2nd EU Referendum', 4,100,590 signatures as of July 2, 2016.
- The UK Government responded (along the predictable lines) and deferred decision on debate.

- Brexit: Amber Rudd says Plan B options plausible -BBC, December 8, 2018
At full steam to over the cliff under Boris Johnson; with Corbyn rooting for no-confidence vote, perhaps with himself as caretaker, to quite lukewarm (at best) response.
With all this, Johnson gears up and weeps on Merkel shoulder for a deal; she is quite compassionate. But hopes are dashed by proper French, "Renegotiation of the terms currently proposed by the British is not an option that exists, and that has always been made clear by [EU] President Tusk." --Resup (talk) 08:13, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

- "It will be a nice goodbye to a good friend who is going on an exciting adventure, but is perhaps not too bright," Mr Toekook told the Dutch news agency ANP.
- The party will involve "sitting in a deck chair with Dutch chips, French wine and German beer, watching Britain as it closes itself off."

- No-deal Brexit: an unforgivable act of vandalism by the Conservative Party -Tony Blair, The Times, August 24, 2019
- Johnson threatens Europe with no-deal if they don’t back down. Sure, it hurts them, especially the Irish. But it hurts us much more, and Northern Ireland severely.
- For the 27 other EU members, scrapping the backstop yet keeping an open border wrecks the essential principle of the single market and customs union. They will never pay that price and they won’t sell the Irish out.
- No-deal Brexit is an act of unforgivable political and constitutional vandalism. What baffles me is why the Conservative Party is willing to take the risk of owning it.
- Gordon Brown calls on MPs to order no-deal Brexit inquiry - The Guardian, August 26, 2019
- “And that should be before the House of Commons before we ever go ahead. That would be a sensible way forward.”

- End the UK’s Role as a “Safe Haven for Corrupt Wealth” -Transparency.org, 14 March, 2018
- Transparency International has identified £4.4 billion worth of UK properties bought with suspicious wealth and more than a fifth of these properties were purchased by Russian individuals. Meanwhile, a quarter of all Tier 1 investment visas granted by the UK between 2008 and 2015, a period in which almost no checks were carried out on source of wealth, were to Russians. This amounts to a minimum of £729 million invested by Russians at a time when there was little scrutiny over where this money came from. We are calling on the Government to urgently bring in legislation that would require overseas companies who buy UK property to reveal who their real owners are and use the new Unexplained Wealth Orders to better investigate the UK assets of corrupt individuals.

- The UK is a top destination for money laundering. The National Crime Agency (NCA) estimates that the level of illicit financial flows through the UK is well in excess of 90 billion GBP per year (4.6 % of the GDP in 2016, 2.619 trln USD; compare with 1.8 annual GDP growth). These large sums that come into the UK are often linked to Russian nationals, including associates of Putin. Whilst clearly not all wealthy Russians in the UK have grown rich by corruption, over the last decade or so, kleptrocrats from Russia have continued to launder unfathomably large sums through the UK – money that has likely been plundered from state coffers and solicited in bribes.
Curious sort of situation. Pre-Skripal, worked for all fat cats, -inflow of money lifting economy, property prices, while Russian fats getting a perceived safe-haven from Putin. After Skripal, suddenly stopped working--but not because an actual cat was killed. But that reversal is going some way towards helping Putin-who does not want rebels moneys flowing out? Related, Abramovich is out of investor visa renewal, got Israeli passport (allowing UK visits in particular), and suspended stadium rebuilding in London, to the tune of 1 bln pounds. Kind of mixed feelings. Probably, that wealth will not go into something good (as an alternative to something pointless, like billions for kicking a ball); it will just kind of evaporate, as modern moneys are unreal. --Resup (talk) 07:59, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
