I wish James Chapman luck but he’ll have his work cut-out.

For sure, Chapman has outstanding political skills but he’ll need to make Nigel Farage look like a character in a children’s pantomime to reverse the Brexit damage. Chapman will have to lead the heavy-hitters. Watch for big names to commit to Chapman, especially Conservative & Labour senior politicians.

Fear will be the dominant factor in UK politics in twelve months. The public are tired, hard-up and angry and at the moment they’re taken in by the Pied Piper of Islington. Meanwhile, the Conservative Party has been hijacked by shadowy right-wing politicians who are looking out for the best interests of the privileged.

james Chapman is staking his name to the middle ground of UK politics but can he reverse the magnetism of Far Right and Far Left populism?

Thoughts?

The Independent reports that a post-Brexit trade deal with the US could see a massive increase in the amount of cancer-causing toxins in British milk and baby food.

The bottom line is that food standards in some areas in the US are looser giving food manufacturers lower costs. Meanwhile, in the EU regulations are stricter particularly it would seem with regard to baby food.

The Independent’s article is part of growing campaign of fear highlighting the downside risks of Brexit. Whilst individually these risks might to necessarily be that large, collectively they will start to increasingly worry ordinary people.

The elephant in the room is that the British people were conned about Brexit, thinking that immigration would be slashed and the EU contributions would prop up the failing public health service. I expect that in the Autumn we shall see an increasing push-back against Brexit.
