Re: BREXIT - What now ?

We’re beginning to see what ‘taking back control’ looks like

It’s widely remarked upon that ‘take back control’ was a brilliant campaign slogan, not least because it could be taken to mean whatever people wanted it to mean. But as the cliché has it, politicians campaign in poetry and govern in prose. Whatever lofty dreams the slogan may have inspired, we are now beginning to see the more prosaic realities of what it is going to mean in practice, and how these are puncturing the delusions that not only characterised the Referendum campaign but which have proved remarkably resistant to the battering received by events over the last three years.

Having to have reality explained - yet again

The core delusion was tackled again this week by the new President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, during her visit to the UK. In polite, regretful and measured tones – painfully at odds with so much of the political debate here - she pointed out the basic fact that, by definition, the UK’s new relationship with the EU will be less close and less beneficial than that of a member state, and less close and less beneficial than that of a member of the single market. It is a statement of the blindingly obvious, to the extent of being a definitional truth and virtually a tautology. Michel Barnier made exactly the same point in 2017, and again just a few weeks ago...

Re: BREXIT - What now ?

Nigel Farage is in line for a £150,000 payday from the EU when the UK quits at the end of January, it was revealed today.

The Brexit Party leader will get a six-figure 'transition' payment because he has spent more than 20 years as an MEP in the heart of Brussels.

But his 29 MEPs elected last May face walking away in a few weeks with nothing because of the short stint they will have put in, the Sunday Times reported.

Mr Farage, who loses his job as an MEP for South East England on January 31, is eligible for 179,000 euros (£152,000) severance pay.

That is on top of his EU pension for 21 years of service - the 55-year-old is in line to receive 70 per cent of his salary of more than £100,000.
