Reality check

https://yougov.co.uk/news/2017/01/16/public-split-what-kind-brexit-they-think-governmen/

The most interesting thing here is that the government is happy to ally itself with the hard brexiteers, citing the referendum as a mandate to do so, while only 39% of the public want a hard brexit!

When Margaret Thatcher described referenda as tools for dictators, she wasn’t joking.

The hard brexiteers are getting excited today over Trump’s optimistic comments of an easy trade deal with the USA. Unfortunately what they are apparently not aware of is that the USA accounts for less than 10% of our trade, while the EU around 50%. Annoying the EU and running off to the USA is very much a loser’s strategy.
