Holy mother of God what a mess it has been. Ever since the champagne at the beginning. The empty shallow promises and the ones sneering at the ones who dared to question the nay-sayers. Hell, there been some battles, some people resigning and three Prime Ministers. Also a whole dozens of changes to the cabinet from time to time.
Brexit, the gift that continues to give or the curse that continuing cursing. Well, this isn’t over yet. Even though it is close. No matter what happens. Everyone is losing. The United Kingdom has already lost leverage and lost markets. Companies have already fled, some on paper and others shifting production. While the same companies will re-sell their products on a later date in the United Kingdom.
The exporters and importers from the UK will have new hurdles, procedures and possible costs for every transaction and every product shipped. The UK will meet new requirements and be a “third country”. That will benefit a very chosen few, but the rest will get more expensive products. Also, extend the length and time at customs. The free-flow of goods and people will stop. Not be like its today. Therefore, the oven-baked deal isn’t that baked and ready for supper.
United Kingdom is not only hurting remainers, but Brexiteers alike. They are all hurt. These folks will struggle with the ideals of a United Ireland. Northern Ireland will be in a limbo. Gibraltar will get closer to Spain. Scotland want another referendum to be free from United Kingdom. So the Scots can rejoin EU. There is a whole bag of trouble.
Not to mention the Welsh industry and exports will be hit too. Not only hurt the financial sector in London. They have already felt the pain of funds, banks and others shifting to Dublin and elsewhere in the years after the referendum.
Therefore, the UK has lost before they even entered the finish-line. Auto-mobile industry with Honda and others have already cried out loud, but to no a-wail. The same has the steel industry with Tata in Wales. No, the HM Government is to proud to listen to the ones that actually employees people. Rather give a win to the radical right and the Brexiteers. Than actually help the ones who can feed you. The industrial juggernauts who has capacity and ability to read the room.
Boris Johnson rather risk it all for a cheap trick. A “No-Deal” will only sound smooth to a chosen few. To the ones who are staunch critics of Brussels. However, a no deal will hurt the bottom-line and make it a longer process for a Free-Trade Agreement with the EU. The biggest market of goods for the UK. This is why it’s foolish to risk it, but London clearly have more flex than brains of late. Just like Geordie Shore participants. A lot of tan, but not a lot wise-guys. Only the smug pricks whose arrogance cannot stomach an ordinary pay-check or live-hand-to-mouth.
This PM and Cabinet should live a few months on Benefit Street and seen the hardships for the ones falling behind and not participating in the growth for the elites. Then they might seen other policies and not just cutting back on the state. As they are preparing assaulting the state even more, by forcing a reckless falling out and not reaching a deal. Just to prove their balls to the public.
That is what the Tories are up too and in the mix of it. Just blame the EU and Brussels for making to hard of a bargain. That they couldn’t swallow it or feel they lost to much. Still, they are willing to loose even more. Just to suck it up for their pride as they are leaving the Union. Hoping the Union of UK isn’t being hit at the same time… well… it is … we just don’t know when that will start and the new fragmentation will go on.
Just like when you open one door into the unknown. You never know what is on the other side. It might be paradise or the living hell. It might be opportunities or challenges. Whatever the Brexit opened. It wasn’t better governance or betterment of the UK. No it was self-destruction mode. Piece by piece. Peace.
