Brexit is a shambles

By | April 6, 2019

I gave up following Brexit in detail and gave up Twitter a few weeks ago. I had been researching Europe and Brexit and anti-Brexit arguments in quite some detail and I had planned some quite extensive content but something had to give, either work or blogging.

And all of my contact with Brexiteers was either acrimonious or seemingly pointless, unable to change any minds.

I concluded that those who have made up their minds are not for changing. It seems to me to be so obvious that Europe is beneficial and clearly so obvious to leavers that Europe is some megalomaniac federal superstate run by unelected lunatics.

They have gobbed all of the stupid propaganda. So now any arguments about the advantage of open and free trade go on deaf ears, the idea that free trade will cost us more in administration, time and may risk just in time operations is just Project Fear to them. There is no talking sense.

All my arguments about standards and developing the single market, the open market likewise seem of no importance. I fear there are very few economists and supply chain specialists in the Brexit camp.

Added to this, Parliament has been a shambles recently unable to vote on anything sensible except more recently excluding no deal. The latest move is to force the government to extend article 50 again so as to avoid a crash out no deal Brexit in April. At least.

There is no withdrawal agreement, perhaps this is a good thing for remainers because otherwise if a withdrawal agreement had been agreed, we would definitely be leaving. At least a delay is better than that.
