If this thoughtful assessment of the UK’s perilous situation does not sober up the mad Brexiters in the Tory and Labour parties I am not at all sure what on earth will.

Mrs. May and her Brexit lapdog Mr. Corbyn potentially have us on the road to utter ruin. They may well have swallowed UKIP’s mad ideas of isolation, closed borders and Little England but the prospect of no deal with the EU and a government of Bluekip or Redkip with no idea how to stop digging the vast Brexit hole we are already in any deeper is horrifying indeed.

Brexit – ‘scaremongers’ proved right

Quote from article – ‘It’s taken a year, but as Britain’s economy slumps and inflation bites, the warnings about the costs of our vote to leave the EU are coming true’

But then again we all really knew that leaving the EU would be a huge error of judgement didn’t we?

Do you want a say on life after Brexit? There’s only one place you’ll get it.

Quote from the article:-

‘This nasty, Ukip-inspired version of Brexit will isolate us from our European neighbours, threatening our security and our prosperity. I believe we all should have the right to decide whether it’s a deal we want for Britain. We should be given the chance to vote in a second referendum once the full terms of the negotiations, and the implications for our country, become clear.

Only the Liberal Democrats are offering a second referendum, which is why I am delighted to be joining a party which is on the right side of this historic debate.’

Her Majesty’s Official Opposition recently stood down, did you notice?

Wow this is a powerful front cover from the New Statesman but sadly it does reflect how Labour, as the official opposition, has abandoned its post in our democratic processes in favour of its own internal infighting and jumping into Teresa May’s bed over Brexit.

And who will speak for liberal and Liberal Britain? Well you know which party is already doing that – the Lib Dems and Tim Farron. Labour, the Tories and UKIP are fighting it out as to which is best to take us back to the 1960’s or 1950’s with no clear winner presently!

Carl Cashman for Mersey Metro Mayor

Carl Cashman

I love this quote from Carl as it really does sum up why our part of the world voted to remain in the EU and why should all be fighting for the EU and against the headlong Hard Brexit of May & Corbyn.

Our region has benefited massively from EU investment when Merseyside was really down at heel and Carl is right to point that out.

Time to ditch old allegiances and get behind Carl to be our first Mersey Mayor. Labour and Tories (and of course UKIP) will simply continue to press for a Hard Brexit which will ruin our economy both locally and nationally.
