‘Neither labour nor the tories a credible plan for the quarter and month,” said Mr. McPherson, a former senior official in the Treasury, on Twitter. This distinguished public servant who had seen Ministers of both major parties grapple with the economic crisis, continued to ask: “the British have never been so badly served by the two main parties?”
It is not surprising that the EU negotiator, Mr Michel Barnier, it turns out, week after week, having to note that all creative decisions, with which he represented the British, indeed, to be left to the imagination.
“The leadership of Theresa may” the conservative party, and, alas, the nation has become an exercise in obfuscation. Appear remain the deputies from personal meetings with the Prime Minister to talk about guarantees, then processed the following morning quite a different spin on the meeting, not 10 – after, that is, enough of them voted to save her parliamentary skin.
Commentators often report that the reason why the Prime Minister in such a dual position that she is trying to reconcile the two wings of his party. But it evokes the false impression that go and stay wings have the same weight. They are not. It is well known that the majority of deputies more and more convinced that to go ahead with the British exit from the EU would be a mistake. It’s just that the main Brexiters to manage well to be too noticeable.
As the Economic news got worse and worse, quarter, and month will be to use the old classic metaphor can “pile up on Pelion, Ossa”. After the referendum, our economy has slowed almost to stagnation of industrial production actually falling in the last three months. For two years we have gone from the fastest growing of the major European countries to a minimum level, the Bank of England often have to eat their words about the possible increase in interest rates, as inflation in wages he worries did not materialize.
The outgoing President of the CBI, Paul, Drechsler, could hardly be more open last week, saying that a mess of a British exit from the EU nonsense, created for businessmen who, unlike the brigade of the British exit from the EU, I think that plans for their use.
None of the options alternative soft British exit from the EU is so satisfactory, as we already
Drexler said, “in the business world, we’re upset. We’re angry.” Business was interested in the economy, politicians were “playing politics”. Now it is obvious that policies by definition, in the business of “playing politics”; the problem for UK PLC in 2018 that the leaders of both major parties put party over country when the country is experiencing the worst economic crisis of my career.
Now don’t waste time in backtracking on the interpretation put on her assurances on Tuesday, the Prime Minister said that the recent “new amendments” will not allow Parliament “to direct or control every step” final stage negotiations “exit”. “I can’t,” says British exit from the EU-so the UK out of the EU, Prime Minister, “the Parliament may cancel the will of the people”.
“The will of the people” comes up again and again. Because it means nothing, it means that on 23 June 2016, there was a referendum, suggesting that 37% of the adult population said they wanted to withdraw from the EU. In other words, it will be 37% of people eligible to vote (just over a third) and 51.9% of those who voted: half of the people.
My point is that at 51.9%, or 37%, now we should ask how economic value even the prospect of a British exit from the EU is becoming increasingly apparent, “you voted to become poorer?” As the author of the letter in the “times” wrote last week: “I can’t imagine that the vast ranks of voters in the northeast voted for lower living standards and higher unemployment”.
Now, although many commentators give the impression that the majority were deprived of leaving the UK working class people are worried about immigration, I know a lot of affluent middle class voters who voted on the basis of a misunderstanding of the extent to which “Brussels” allegedly infringe on our sovereignty. But they can afford to become poorer, or to take preventive measures: many marveled at the cheeks of my old friend Lord Lawson taking up formal residence in France, and that maggot Jacob Rees-Mogg create an investment tool in Dublin.
None of the alternative “soft British exit from the EU”, the options are anywhere near as satisfactory as “have your cake and eat it too” position, which we have already. I was hoping, and still, our elected representatives can come to the rescue. Meanwhile, Barnier and our continental friends should be encouraged in their efforts to try to save Britain from itself.
