I’ve been very busy for a bit so haven’t been around too much recently
trying to make sense of all the latest UK government’s Brexit mind changes and Brexiteer principle dumping:
- Boris told 4 EU Ambassadors he wants free movement of workers. And then denied he’d said it.
- David told Westminster parliament he’s prepared to pay to stay in the Single Market. Chancellor Hammond agreed with him.
So why did the UK hold the referendum? To make citizens pay more?And have no voice in EU decisions?You like paying the fare to the bus driver and telling him we’ll run behind the bus until it gets to his destination?
- Theresa’s now worried about Christians being persecuted in the UK, maybe because they aren’t being educated in grammar schools
- The Supreme Court’s deciding whether Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland can veto, or at least have a say over, Brexit
- Theresa insists she’s committed to engaging with the devolved governments. So she’ll talk to them. How much she’ll heed them remains to be seen.
- The plot thickens – the Irish Senate now supports Scottish Independence.
Did anyone tell Enda beforehand?
And did anyone tell Enda about these new demands on the Irish purse?
- Truculent Arlene suggested the Republic of Ireland pay for some sort of clean-up of the UK Brexit mess
- And David Rowlands, UKIP Welsh Assemblyman, asked the Welsh government to seek EU funding from the Irish government to upgrade a motorway between London and south Wales “because Irish lorries use it”.
I’ve thought about it all and
well it’s not any more
So here’s my 800-odd words on Brexit today
