It’s been another extraordinary few weeks for Britain and Brexit, with a chemical attack on British soil, revelations about data breaches, and a transition agreement that does nothing except hide inherent contraditions and postpone difficult decisions until after we’ve left the EU and lost all bargaining power or any way back from this mess.
As for the Irish border mess, Sky News reported that the government has been asking some UK businesses to sign agreements that include plans not to enforce a customs border if no Brexit deal is reached. Are they really happy to forgo all customs duty? That was £3.359 billion’s worth in 2016/17. What’s £65 million a week between friends?
