Lets just say that Boris last minute cave in which I fully predicted LINK2 has resulted in a very bad deal for the UK since it creates paperwork, bureaucracy and has nothing tangible to say on services.. It removes rights of UK citizens to automatically work and live in the EU, it puts the country at risk by limiting our access to EU databases. It makes the UK far less attractive for domestic and foreign investment. It will lower GDP by 4% by 2020 (in my view this is the minimum fall) and will cost hundreds of thousands of jobs.. Yet clown Boris has the cheek to claim this is all a great success.
I like this analysis reported in the Guardian which sums this whole fiasco up brilliantly:
In Der Spiegel, Nikolaus Blome said there was “absolutely nothing good about Brexit … which would never have happened had Conservative politicians not, to a quite unprecedented degree, deceived and lied to their people”.
Much of the British media, Blome said, “were complicit, constantly trampling on fairness and facts”, leaving Britain “captured by gambling liars, frivolous clowns and their paid cheerleaders. They have destroyed my Europe, to which the UK belonged as much as France or Germany.”
But Johnson’s lies were the biggest of all, he said: “‘Take back control,’ Johnson lied to his citizens. But all the British government will finally have achieved is to have taken back control of a little shovel and a little sand castle.”
As the Brexit lies unravel in 2021 I expect there to be dawning on many British people that voted for Brexit they were duped. Well I am sorry that they were but sometimes in life you have to learn the hard way. It is as simple as that.
In the meantime Happy New Year to all (excluding Boris, Gove, Mees Mogg, Gisela Stuart, Raab )
