Re: Boris's Joker Card?
Despite our prophets of doom continuing to assure us that we can do nothing about the present situation, there remains the inevitability of a general election sooner or later.
If we assume the longest delay, a GE must be held in 2022; another three years.
Over that time, we shall remain a member of the EU and will still have the free trade we have before. We shall also be obliged to keep paying their ransom. OK, we have been managing well enough up until now and, if reports are to be believed, our economy continues to grow.
We can also take advantage of that compulsory membership period for businesses to continue to make preparations for a complete Brexit, which I'm sure will happen when the people have another vote.
Importantly, we can also do what other member countries have been doing for years: to completely ignore EU diktats!
Yes, we shall still be paying in, but we can at least insist on our dues: the usual rebates and entitlements, legal abilities to deny access to health tourists and anyone else we don't need, and inclusion in things such as Galileo which, if we play our cards right, can result in our obtaining, as legal partners, all the information available which could benefit us when we do leave as we will have everything we need to go it alone.
We should look at the positives, bide our time, and take full advantage of everything to which, as members, we are entitled. Then, our time will come to leave with a clear political majority which the EU and their fifth columnists in this country can do nothing about.
People have long memories.
