Brexit

Bad idea Brexit has turned into a disaster

So that’s it then, is it? Theresa May has concluded a Brexit deal that channels Paul Daniels – the TV magician from the 1980s – whose catchphrase was “you’ll like this… not a lot, but you’ll like it!”

After a long and bitter campaign marked by anti-immigrant sentiment, an ill-thought-out referendum was won on a knife-edge by Leave, opening the way to two years of shambolic negotiations and a draft deal that, if approved at Westminster, will leave us with less access to the European market than we have now as well as restrictions on our ability to conclude third country trade deals and no power to influence future EU decisions.
