Sputnik: Will the further Brexit delay be benefitical to either the UK or EU?
Nate Rydings: I'm not surprised by the delay. As soon as we got Brexit I knew for a fact that the Conservative Party would try and either revoke it or delay it, and this is what's been going on for the past two and a half years nearly three years.
I don't see it benefitting anyone; it could have been such a simple process, repealing the European Communities Act, leaving on WTO terms and having a decent relationship between the UK and the rest of Europe, but it's drawn out, it's complicated and remainers are getting sick of it, leavers are getting sick of it, so I can't see it benefitting anyone other than Theresa May.
We've got the House of Commons now saying we need to rule out no deal. I hate the term no deal, it is a WTO Brexit, so honestly; I think with this remainer government, with the remainer parliament, and the remainer Prime Minister, we will never get a true Brexit.
Sputnik: How do you see British politics changing after the Brexit debacle?
Nate Rydings: I don't think it's going to be over for a long time now, especially with what's going on, but I think that democracy is slowly dying in the UK.
They are feeling absolutely betrayed, and this is going for seventeen point four million people. Politicians all across the political spectrum will need to really try hard to earn the trust of the public again after this.
