Brexit will be so damaging that UK will try to rejoin EU, Scottish minister says

  Brexit will be so damaging that UK will try to rejoin EU, Scottish minister says The United Kingdom's exit from the European Union will be so damaging that it will try to rejoin in 20 years, Scotland's Brexit minister said on Thursday.

Everything from just-in-time supply chains in the auto industry to the free movement of workers and even their pet cats and dogs will be thrown into question by negotiations on Britain's exit from the European Union, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said.

Speaking at a G20 trade union event on Wednesday, Merkel said that, while Britain would be free to change rules to its own advantage after leaving the bloc, it would pay a price if the EU had to take steps in response to preserve a level playing field.

"The British auto industry lives on supplies from continental European countries," she said . "It is up to the British side, who are expressing the wish to have the fewest possible distortions." From carmakers to cats , all face Brexit disruption , Merkel says .

This will not work."The fact that so many areas of policy had for decades operated under EU rules meant that disruption following Brexit could extend into wholly unexpected parts, she said in response to a question from a British trade union official. "Currently, the 250,000 pets, cats and dogs

"That's not malice," she added. "(One) cannot have all the good sides and then say there will be an upper limit of 100,000 or 200,000 EU citizens, no more, or just researchers, but please nobody else. This will not work."

The fact that so many areas of policy had for decades operated under EU rules meant that disruption following Brexit could extend into wholly unexpected parts, she said in response to a question from a British trade union official.

"Currently, the 250,000 pets, cats and dogs, that travel from Britain to the continent or the other way each year are managed within an EU framework," she said. "Now they'll need hygiene certificates - things we don't even remember."

The EU would "naturally" consider the interests of the 48 percent of Britons who had voted against Brexit, she said, but it was for trade unions to push for a level playing field between Britain and the bloc to be preserved to minimise disruption to British employers and employees.

"The British auto industry lives on supplies from continental European countries," she said. "It is up to the British side, who are expressing the wish to have the fewest possible distortions."

Brexit takes centre stage in leaders' TV debate .
UKIP's leader Paul Nuttall found himself outnumbered by 4-1 on Brexit and other issues in a party leaders' TV debate that was snubbed by Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn.  Mr Nuttall was also isolated on immigration and grammar schools as he battled against the Lib Dems' Tim Farron, Caroline Lucas of the Greens, the SNP's Nicola Sturgeon and Leanne Wood of Plaid Cymru.But the UKIP leader didn't help his cause when on two occasions during the debate he called Leanne Wood "Natalie", presumably confusing her with former Green Party leader Natalie Bennett.
