I know we are supposed to be positive and embrace the brand new world that Brexit is going to offer and to anything else is now considered a thought crime but I have one question for all those driving us to the 31st October 2019. For all this money we are throwing at Brexit just what are we getting in return? I am not talking about the fantasy promises that Boris Johnson is going around the country throwing around like so much confetti which all have the ring of the Boris Bridge in London. No I am talking about the billions we are throwing away supporting the country’s agriculture, industry et al so that whatever bump we fell after the 31st October isn’t as hard as it could be.
I have looked around and all I have found is platitudes about bright futures whilst no one appears to offer any justification as to why spending all this money is worthwhile other than to keep farmers in their farms after we leave. I know this really is a serious thought crime but wouldn’t have been better not to have to waste this money and stayed put in the European Union? Afterall upwards of £8 billion would certain have been a great investment in the Northern Powerhouse rather than slaughtering sheep that no one wants (possibly – we just don’t know what the post Brexit landscape will be.)
I guess the one good(?) thing to come about from this is that the next time some politician – usually a Conservative – stands up and says the country can’t afford some new social policy then we can all point to the billions being wasted on no deal brexit prep and say bollocks.
This of course won’t happen and I end this nigly negativism and embrace the positive new world. What a fool I’ve been! I now see the error of all my ways.
