The Brexit 3.8 % has almost certainly eroded away now that the reality of the implications of EU are becoming clearer. News about the possible outcomes of Brexit is now becoming much clearer with investment in the UK declining and big businesses pulling up roots and walking. Prices of goods are set to rise and there is a possibility of food shortages. Public opinion and desire for Brexit, either with deal or no deal, has almost certainly eroded away the meagre 3.8% majority it had over 2 years ago. Despite all this Theresa May and the out of touch politicians in Government seem oblivious to this change in public opinion and are still determined to push through to complete Brexit regardless. How out of touch and blinkered can they be to this change in public opinion? Opinions change over 2 years + and the desire to leave the EU has now dwindled considerably. Besides which you would have only to look at the overall composition of the British people to realise that the outcome of the original vote should have been adjusted to account for the composition of that vote which was racist, or lacked understanding of the underlying issues. In reality there is at least 3.8 % + of the British people that are racists, bigots, illiterate and just plain stupid. So in reality the vote should have been adjusted accordingly by factoring in the overall composition of British Society to nullify their impact on the overall outcome of the vote. Instead we have been held to account by a small majority representing the most unpleasant and unsavoury side of British Society. Great Job!
Theresa May faces an unenviable Brexit dilemma. Not only can she not satisfy the British Public because of her fudged proposals for the deal which is unlikely to satisfy what most Leavers voted for in the first place but neither will it satisfy those in her own party that require a stronger link with European Union following our exit or those that require a clean break with, and greater separation from, Europe at any cost. Neither can she let the process continue to a ‘No Deal’ scenario mainly because this outcome puts the Conservative Party at incredible future risks of becoming non electable for a extended period. This is a huge Brexit dilemma for Theresa May and the future of the Conservative Party as a whole.
The Brexit Circus just goes around and around in circles getting us nowhere. The Prime Minister Theresa May and her clown, David Davis, seem to have no idea at all of how to negotiate with the EU. All we seem to be seeing from Theresa May is her abilities to annoy the EU with her misguided arrogance and insistence that Britain will dictate the terms of it’s departure from the EU, whilst the EU seems equally insistent that it will not submit to our demands. Pretty much everyone else with an ounce of sense in this Country knows that we just cannot dictate the terms of our departure and insist that we get everything that we want: it just does not work like that. The EU is also telling us the same message that Britain cannot dictate terms to them and insist that it gets all it wants. In reality we have a very weak hand to play whilst the EU holds a much stronger position. They have more to gain and less to loose from all this. Membership subscriptions bring rewards and privileges enjoyed by members and outside of the club you loose these rights and privileges and benefits associated with membership. It’s plain and simple and quite simply the message that the EU wants to send to other member countries that may think of leaving: that they should beware of what lies beyond the boundaries of the Membership Circle. Britain will no doubt suffer as a consequence of leaving this Membership Circle and the EU will be keen to reinforce this message. Any Leave Campaigners that had the notion that we could leave the EU and retain or cherry pick our terms of departure leaving in it’s place an arrangement that was more favourable to Britain was simply: delusional, misinformed or simply misguided.
Have you ever wondered why the Tories are so keen to push ahead with Brexit despite the gloomy forecast for the UK’s Economic Future and the reality for the majority of UK citizens? Have you ever wondered if they are not telling you something? Well the plain truth about why they are so keen to achieve a departure from the European Union at whatever cost to this Country lies in the past and the Conservatives continued allegiance to the principles of Thatcherism.
Brexit will be bad for Britain yet many of our politicians are still intent upon scuppering the British Economy by steering a course for a head on crash with this iceberg. Others are so worried about popularity and opinion polls that are unable and unwilling to raise the alarm even though they are supposed to represent the best interests of Britain.
Brexit will be bad for Britain
Yesterday saw Boris Johnson desperately rallying in front of press conference to gather support again for his cause, with sound bytes in response to the gloomy admissions made by the Government last week that Brexit will be bad for Britain. Rather than be a responsible politician who cares for Britain and it’s citizens by facing the facts, BoJo’s response is to further attempt to mislead, beguile and appeal to the right-wing sentiment that has placed us all in this stupid predicament. His rallying calls are now just a desperate attempt to brainwash and persuade his army of followers to charge into battle ill-equipped for the battle ahead. Sentiment alone will prove to be inadequate armour for the challenges of our exit from the EU. Here we are again with the age old British problem of a handful of toffs believing that they have God given rights to sacrifice ordinary Britain’s in their ill-thought out schemes and battles. It’s now high time to face facts Boris, that Brexit will be bad for Britain. It’s high time that his followers started to realise what a comic book pillock he actually is and started to put Britain first rather than believe in the lunacy of a egotistical politician that cares more for his own persona than he does for Britain.
Finally, this week, the Government have been forced to come clean and actually reveal to us the consequences of Brexit, if these were not already apparent before the Referendum. Yes they have confirmed that Brexit, in whatever form it takes, will make us all worse off and basically result in an economic slump for the UK which will lead to higher prices, inflation and job losses. So well done to the small majority of people who have voted for this course of disaster : or wait a minute did you not realise that this would be the outcome?
The sad reflection of the Brexit Vote is that reason and intelligence have been sacrificed in favour of a Popularist Vote and Majority rule. It has encouraged the small minded section of the British Public to believe that their opinions matter. In fact the Brexit Vote has endorsed this belief. Now it seems that Britain is being run not by elected governments with the expertise to run a country but instead by a misconceived Popularist Vote. What a way to run things! This sort of thing would simply not happen in business where people are selected for various tasks and duties based on expertise and competence. Instead we have the situation where the future of Britain and it’s economic status is being decided by a vote that was composed mainly of people who: latched onto only one aspect of the argument, saw an opportunity to openly express their prejudices and right wing views and who saw an opportunity to express an extreme dislike of foreigners entering the country. I would say that if a poll were to be taken the majority of British citizens would not have the least idea about topics such as Economics, Inflation, Trade Tariffs or International Trade so why have we what is basically an uneducated majority decide what is best for Britain on these matters?
Now we all have to face the consequences of David Cameron and the Tory parties desperate bid for power in seeking to appeal to the small minded biggots that unfortunately we find today in Britain. Cameron’s gamble backfired which ultimately led him to resign. Personally I do not take well to be told what to do by people when I neither respect their opinion nor credit them with a certain amount of intelligence or competence to do the job correctly. Now my whole future will be influenced by this decision taken by a majority that I have no faith in and together with me the fate of the whole country has been decided in this fashion as well. It is a prospect I am not looking forward to at all. This choice has been imposed upon me by a section of the public that most probably has no understanding of Economics at all.
Brexit is a gamble and Britain is now officially a Nation of Gamblers
Brexit is quite simply a gamble. It’s like backing a 100 to 1 outsider. Brexit has turned the whole country into a nation of gamblers betting irresponsibly on uncertainties. Many people who voted for Brexit did so based solely on: their own personal opinions and what effects them personally; what upsets them about Britain, their own prejudices, their uncharitableness towards others in need of assistance; their own interpretation of what Brexit meant to them without considering the larger picture and the long term consequences for Britain as a whole. Many of these people most probably voted for the first time and probably have little genuine interest in politics, fiscal policy and economics nor in General Elections. How can we trust this section of the public to make the right choices for Britain? How can it be that Britain could so willingly sacrifice: reason, intelligence and it’s economic future for the sake of prejudice and bigotry.
In some ways I feel sorry for Theresa May speeding off to the United States to meet Donald Trump. The reality is that she has no choice she has to be seen to be making the best of it. May has to be seen to getting a good deal otherwise Brexit is just going to look like the flop it already is. The EU is sticking to it’s guns and is going to make it hard for Britain. Yes it’s going to be a Hard Brexit after all but May feels that she deflect and distract from all this by harking back to the ‘Special Relationship’ that her predecessor forged with another questionable president running the USA. To me it all smacks of desperation since Trump has openly said that it will be ‘America First’ so really what does Theresa May really hope to gain from her US visit to Trump?
We will be looking at recent speeches in the Commons by Jeremy Corbyn and how his speeches seem to conflict with his plans to let Theresa May and her Tories have a free hand, unchallenged in processing their Brexit plans through Parliament. Is the Labour Party now colluding with the Tories to get a swift Brexit. Should not the Labour Party be opposing Theresa May and her government in their attempts to speed through what is essentially the product of a right wing and extreme right movement. Brexit is loosing momentum and support on a daily basis as it becomes clearer of what the consequences to the British Economy will be with the value of the Pound steadily dropping and the prospect of a hard Brexit looming. The Labour Party would be best served preaching good sense and be thinking what is best for Britain and the British Economy rather than attempting to gain electoral advantage by courting support from right wing voters.
Have you taken a moment to understand that Brexit will be bad for Britain. It’s now getting obvious that there will be no good deal for the U.K from our European partners and why should there be. Theresa May is emphatic that we will succeed in getting a good deal for Britain but this is mainly just Tory arrogance. Why should we believe that we are a special case deserving of the best or a better deal than anyone else. This has always been our attitude to Europe we somehow have this notion that we are more deserving or best placed to have special rights. Well no more because the European Union are going to make an example of us : how dare they leave. They will make it hard with no special deals. It is in their interests of survival that we are made an example of: isn’t that just so obvious. They are not going to make us a nice cosy deal otherwise all the other European Union Countries will want to leave under similar cosy little arrangements. Theresa May already knows this because she has been attempting to find friends in Europe since being given the messy job of being the Brexit Prime Minister. She can’t find friend nor favour and time is quickly running out. Despite this Theresa May is sitting pretty and brimming with confidence so you have to wonder why. Well the answer to this lies in the simple rule of Conservative Party undeclared policy: Simply blame someone else for the mess that they might find themselves in. So when it all goes horribly wrong and when the British Public are complaining that they have received a hard Brexit and prices have risen, people have lost jobs and Inflation has rocketed who will be to blame: Well You of course. The British Public will be to blame for making Theresa May do this economically Hara-Kiri. Theresa May is sitting pretty and pressing ahead with this economic suicide because you, the British Public, wanted her to. Yes your to blame for Brexit : you the bigots and small-minded people who actually bothered, probably for the first time in your lives, to go to the polling stations. Who else is to blame well David Cameron of course for encouraging the small-minded bigots to rally for their cause and in letting them express their misguided opinions.
Then you have to ask yourselves who benefits from Brexit. Well Theresa May and the Conservatives stand to benefit from the stupidity of Brexit by inheriting a Thatcherite Utopia of a low wage economy with high unemployment and high inflation which Thatcher sought to bring about and exploited by eroding wages and working conditions for U.K. citizens and workers. This is what Theresa May wants for U.K citizens and when this happens the metamorphosis of may into Margerat Thatcher II ( no spelling mistake I assure you) will be complete.
And finally to those of you who are saying that there will be a British Economic Boom as a result of Brexit and our isolationist stance falsely believing that there will be more jobs and better opportunities for British workers well here is a small lesson in Economics.
Any downturn in the Economy such as higher levels of inflation reduces people’s spending power and as such sales are reduced. Higher inflation and a weak pound may make us appealing to exports but exactly who we will be exporting to is in serious doubt because the US will also be attempting economic isolation and Europe simply will not be playing ball with us. High inflation makes us all worse off so we spend less sending our economy into further decline and recession. Recession results in job losses and under Tory control will also result in erosion of wages and workers rights. Higher unemployment again results in less affluence and reduced spending which also results in more benefit payments and increased financial burdens on Central Government which then results in higher levels of taxation and or borrowing. Thus increasing the deficit.
