This is one for all you Brexiters out there to ponder on as you followed the line put out by such folk and you got us into the mess that the UK now finds itself in.
Yes I know that 80% of the electorate voted for a hard Brexit in the recent General Election as both Labour and the Tories promised such in their manifestos. And yes its more than the 52% you Brexiters gained in the EU Referendum so I am sure you feel you have won the argument hands down. But what exactly have you won?
A stable economy – No, a stable Government – No, an opposition (Labour) that will oppose Teresa May’s headless chicken Brexit – NO, more opportunities for future generations – NO (in fact less as their rights to travel in the EU will be restricted), Getting rid of faceless EU bureaucrats who make laws we have to obey – No (there weren’t any), an extra £350m a week for the NHS – No (you were lied to about that one). I could go on but you get my drift. You won for us nothing worth having whilst chucking away things that were worth having. Wow and thanks very much!
