^^^ Those are not the only German voices expressing displeasure at the current EU tactics over the Brexit talks.

Here Alice Weidel (AfD) makes a compelling argument for the EU to change their approach.

Even Mutti Merkel was being nice to the Maybot today, according to the DT, which is not good IMHO. Would have preferred she told May to gehst du sich geficken or whatever the proper German for go eff yourself is, May comes home, gets lynched, new PM, hard Brexit on Friday. Bloody Germans!

Let's see what happens by the end of the week. Legally, some are saying, with Parliament having taken control of Brexit, Trezza cannot enter into any agreement without it being ratified by Parliament, so the default is we leave, finally, on Friday.

It's Easter this coming weekend, and some are saying Tory backbenchers are getting their woodworking tools out....

A better expression in German for your sentiment would be "Geh Scheisse fressen!"

Basically some English/US expressions make no sense to Germans. Like "go fuck yourself." Too hard to actually do unless you are endowed with a tool that enables the same, and for a woman that makes no sense. So it sounds more like go masturbate, which is not especially derogatory since everyone does that. But to tell someone to eat shit like an animal, well that is a fucking insult!

Love them or hate them, what they have written needs saying and consideration.

Until the 'Irish issue' is resolved, Brexit cannot be achieved, IMO.

I agree. But the EUSSR made the Irish border THE issue with which to try and exact punitive conditions which the British PEOPLE cannot accept. Done, I might add, with the contrivance of Varadkar that prize shirt-lifting Brit-hating and increasingly unpopular at home Irish PM. Varadkar no doubt was both playing to lingering Irish nationalism and making sure the EUSSR gravy train to Dublin kept rolling.

No need for any kind of hard border between the UK and Eire at all. Large scale commercial trade could easily be handled the same way as EUSSR / Switzerland trade is, tobacco etc. smuggling by good policing and random checks, and who really gives a rat's arse about the odd cow or bottle of Jamisons anyway?

PS I did suggest that if the Irish really do want a hard border they could make it out of the millions of 1 lb bricks of Kerrygold butter they probably will not be able to sell to the UK any more. US13.7billion a year of Irish dairy products sold to UK last year. Whilst the EUSSR milk quota system saw British dairy farming halved in the last 20 years. In favor of Ireland, and of course, France.
