Brexit Unravelling ?
Brexit was generally understood to mean a complete breakaway from The European Community . Not to allow “ those bloody foreigners “ to dictate to us Brits with their ridiculous laws . It was meant to bring back decisions of Law to be made by British Judges and not by bloody foreigners. We wanted to handle our own affairs and not be tied to measures like allowing freedom of movement and, particularly, not to be “ overwhelmed “ by “ Immigrants “.
The reality is that the U.K. government does not accept decisions of the U.K.Courts either when it rules against them. Not only did they not accept one such ruling - not only are they appealing against that ruling - but a Government minister has called the Judges ruling as “ outrageous”. Some defender of British Justice ! And is still in his post.
The Nissan car company was so unhappy with the decision to leave the EU that they had a meeting with the Government and a secret deal apparently made. Panic stations by the UK government. Irony here as it is based in Sunderland and the Sunderland people voted for Brexit seemingly not realising that the Nissan factory could be moved abroad taking their jobs with it !
Our government has plans to limit immigration but , on her visit to India, the P.M. has told their P.M. that consideration will be given to IndianStudents as regards visas. Reality beats theory indeed !
Our supposed “special relationship” with the U.S. seems to be in danger when Trump becomes President as he has not invited our P.M. to visit the White House but she is to let him know if she intends visiting the U.S. Ouch !
Arrogant Brexiteers were claiming that the EU would need to allow the UK to remain in the Single Market without accepting free movement of people . Highly unlikely as many in the EU thinks that the UK “wants to eat it’s cake but still have it “.
No one really expected a YES vote to leave the EU so no plans had been made for that event .
Bloody idiots !
Bloody minded !
Better out of the EU ?
I doubt it . Stormy waters ahead I fear .
