Brex­i­teers’ new dawn

The Wokingham Paper - - VIEWPOINTS -

Brex­i­teers promised a new dawn of im­proved trade deals across the world. The gov­ern­ment’s Brexit strat­egy now de­fies all logic. It is not even ask­ing Japan for a be­spoke trade deal. In­dia has al­ready told us they won’t give us one. The gov­ern­ment should not be sur­prised if China says the same.

Far from bag­ging lots of new trade deals, the gov­ern­ment is sim­ply try­ing to cut and paste our ex­ist­ing ar­range­ments. Its Brexit strat­egy has just reached new lev­els of ab­sur­dity.

The In­sti­tute for Gov­ern­ment es­ti­mates that the civil ser­vice bill for ne­go­ti­at­ing Brexit is £65m a year. Tahir Ma­her, Prospec­tive Lib­eral Demo­crat Bor­ough Coun­cil­lor for Maiden Er­legh
