Brexit deal­mak­ers play­ing poker

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - FEATURES -

SIR, – It doesn’t need a PPE de­gree to re­alise that the Brexit ne­go­ti­a­tions are a waste of time and money.

The Euro­pean Union de­pends on Ger­man and Bri­tish money for its ex­is­tence. No Bri­tish money, no EU project, un­less the re­main­ing 27 mem­bers make up the short­fall – fat chance.

Trade be­tween Bri­tain and the 27 will con­tinue, EU or no EU, they need our money, we need the work to keep em­ploy­ment lev­els up. Only a mug would pay for that trade. With the Bri­tish cash cow dry­ing up the EU has no op­tion but stall and pre­var­i­cate in the hope their sup­port­ers can sub­vert the ref­er­en­dum re­sult. Fat chance again.

A com­pe­tent deal­maker would have the EU back to the Com­mon Mar­ket roots leav­ing the Ger­man tax­payer to clean up the mess. Mrs May, please take all money of­fers off the ta­ble, pay only for ser­vices that ben­e­fit Bri­tain and never never play poker with our money again. Ian Walker, Craigiebuck­ler Av­enue, Aberdeen
