My friends Roy and Bob separately (but on the same day) drew my attention to two well thought out Brexit articles on the Guardian Web Site which you can read via the links above.
Both articles are economy related. The first shows why the predictions of economic gloom were are most probably right. The second picks up on the mad plan of many leading Brexiters to try to deregulate the financial sector again post-Brexit so that bankers can go back to playing fast and loose with the world economy again.
I must admit to have never being able to understand the motivations of those wishing to leave the EU. The concept just makes no sense to me as severe economic troubles were always to be visited upon us if we were daft enough to to decide to leave.
OK I’m not a racist, a Little Englander, obsessed by sovereignty or someone who has ever thought that the EU bosses us about so maybe that’s why I could not get my head around why 52% of those who voted in the Referendum did indeed want to leave the EU.
But what did those leavers really want or more to the point what did they expect to achieve by voting for isolation in Europe? I ask because what they wanted and what they will achieve may be wildly different! And where on earth are the Government and dear old comrade Jeremy Corbyn going with the ‘view’ of 52% the electorate? This wonderful ‘explanation’ of the muddle we are in just about sums up the hole the Brexiters have dug for us though:-
