This is an excellent, must-read article from EurActiv. Check it out!

via Brexit fight will be won, or lost, on the economy | EurActiv.

Like the UK’s recent general election, the Brexit will come down to simple, bite-size messages with which the public can readily identify. The 2015 election highlighted just how important economic prosperity is to UK voters, so I agree with this article.

Thoughts?

One response

  1. I agree with the article and with Dr Alf too.

    Brexit/membership of the EU will be based on an assessment of delivery.

    So far the EU has not produced a single nett new job in 30 years,has not produced a situation whereby we have not had European wars and ethnic cleansing and has not enabled Europe to make the traffic lights turn green in the great councils of the world in Beiijing and Washington.

    The EU is an entity effectively controlled by a resurgent and powerful Germany and it is Chancellor Merkel that the Chinese rate and France that the Americans see as their military partner of choice rather than the UK.

    The EU has to start delivering on its promise and the benefits it was supposed to bring us from 1975 onwards when we had the Referendum and entered it.

    So far it has not delivered anything of value in 40 years so the benefits of membership need to be clear and obvious by next year if the new Referendum is to be brought forward or by 2017 if it is held at the originally promised time.

    Whilst initiatives take time,40 years ought to be long enough to demonstrate hard benefits that people like me can see and that experienced Chartered Accountants like Dr Alf can quantify using objective measures.

    I wait with interest but with measured skepticism.
