Thankful for Brexit
aNDreW NeiL (Mail) concludes that rishi Sunak’s government will prove Brexit a failed experiment if it doesn’t grasp the economic possibilities. But Brexit was a success from the moment it happened.
the vast majority of Brexiteers voted for freedom from the shackles of an eu hellbent on creating a united States of europe, with everincreasing power assigned to Brussels. We all knew the economy would be turbulent in the short term, and Covid didn’t help.
Brexit was and is about sovereignty, not the economy. Why did the brilliant idea of a Common Market with freedom of movement evolve into a political powergrab? it was because politicians in europe saw an opportunity to centralise power in the hands of an unelected elite. thank god we are out, whatever the economic ramifications.
