Do you think Theresa May believes the Chequers Proposal for Brexit will work?

PM May knows we should stay in the E.U but PM May also want the Tories to remain in Power. Voting in Corbyn will be as entering a Time Machine and landing in the midst of the 1970’s where the Unions had the key to Number 10 and business was there to be taxed ever harder.

Since the Brexit Vote the People of the United Kingdom have all become Brexit experts. However none of us have had to walk the fine line between Political Will and People’s Will and stay afloat – as PM May has had to.

PM May knows we should stay in the E.U but PM May also want the Tories to remain in Power. Voting in Corbyn will be as entering a Time Machine and landing in the midst of the 1970’s where the Unions had the key to Number 10 and business was there to be taxed ever harder.

I would have never taken the U.K down the road PM May has. I would have used the result of the vote to gain support from other member states for major reforms of the EU. Cameron never really negotiated very hard with the E.U as he believed the Vote would be a ‘walk in the park’ for remaining in the E.U.

PM May has also had to deal with the ace knife-throwing back-stabbers Gove and Johnson who no doubt have already measured up the carpet at Number 10.

However, it is the People who must decide now if PM May’s Chequers deal should be accepted. Not the MP’s and not Johnson.

The people of the U.K know so much more about Brexit now then when the Brexit vote was taken. I believe that a second vote is well in order to ensure that the People decide the fate of the Nation.

It would not be a climb-down and I believe that it will give PM May the mandate for either ‘in’ or ‘out’ of the EU that is needed as the current one is too weak.

PM May has done well and no doubt believes that the Chequers proposal is the right one for the U.K

PM has been naive and too soft with the EU – there is still time to harden up. For whatever reason PM May seems to believe that another vote would be a sign of weakness whereas I see it as a symbol of ‘listening to the people’

Will the UK fail miserably after Brexit in the next decade?

The U.K is full and the NHS has no spare beds. On that point alone the UK has a case for the European Courts to severely limit immigration

If I were to become Prime Minister of the UK I would suspend Brexit pending a new vote and a mandate for EU renegotiation. However, as I am not Prime Minister then yes it is highly likely the UK will fail post-Brexit.

PM May will not listen and that alone will fail the U.K. PM May could make a very good Prime Minister but the DNA of May seems to act very stubbornly when her own ideas are questioned and in go the May Heels.

The U.K is about to lost 27 trading partners. 27 who are on the doorstep of the UK. The U.K’s new trading partners are not on the doorstep, they have very different cultures and weather patterns and it will cost a lot to get our goods to them.

The sun no longer shines on the great British Empire. The doors are closed to the UK and the UK does not have the money to prise them open. PM May should go back to the People and seek a mandate to pause Brexit pending an involved and extensive attempt to renegotiate the UK terms of trade with the EU and the method by which EU Directives are implemented.

The U.K is full and the NHS has no spare beds. On that point alone the UK has a case for the European Courts to severely limit immigration – I would impose an 18 month moratorium pending a full review of the UK ability to absorb any more limitless (as the EU is) immigration.

It is possible to go it alone but PM May will need to form a new Economic Bloc in order to compete against that of the E.U. That will not be easy as China and Russia are also seeking new partners. The U.S. needs Europe more than it needs the U.K which is why President Trump has spent more time in France than the U.K.

The UK’s future is that of Europe’s. We may be an island nation but we are also a continent of people.

Is Nigel Farage considered as an idol in England?

My Answers to World Affairs on Quora  This an answer to a Quora Question.

Farage like the majority of Politicians and in particular U.K politicians is another failed representative of the people who does not listen to anything other than the sound of his own voice.

What is it about economic planning and industrial strategy that all sides of Politics in the U.K do not understand?

Don’t tell me they do. The U.K Economy is an absolute disaster. We can’t even afford our health care let alone social justice. We may be the 5th largest economy in the World but we do not make a profit. Government borrowing is increasing and so too its cost. Our Moody’s rating has just been downgraded – again.

Brexit has made the U.K a joke – one which will ensure that the young people of the United Kingdom are not going to have the same opportunities as their European counterparts.

Farage like Johnson made political ambition more important than the futures of the people of the U.K . The failure of the U.K Government and Establishment to become fully involved in the European Union is what caused the E.U Super-State to emerge.

They and the cobwebs in the Foreign Office should have become fully immersed in the E.U and hence would have led its reform. Instead the U.K have continued looking for ‘tea trade in the Commonwealth’ to exploit whilst walking hand in hand with America into any war they could preach to the world about. They should have been evolving the E.U – which would mean we would not have needed Brexit.

Our Foreign Office still thinks it runs the World. They need a damn good shake-up and need to get out into the real World.

Farage got what he wanted and walked away. Cameron didn’t and cried then walked away. May jumped Euroship to become Prime Minister. Johnson has used Brexit not for the people of the U.K but himself.

Where is the plan Farage and Johnson? Where is the association with non-E.U nationals and Organisations. Where is any form of future strategy for the U.K? There is none and cannot be until we begin to sign Trade Deals and the details of the U.K exit from Brexit are finalised. But Farage never explained to the people of the U.K that the referendum was only one small part of leaving the E.U. nor did Johnson.

Farage and Cameron played selfish politics with the UK and the people lost. We still have no plan.

If the E.U is so bad why is Farage an MEP?

Farage and Johnson, Cameron and May as well as Corbyn are like ships without rudders and sails. They have absolutely no idea of where they are going and no idea of how they are going to get there.

When will the people of the U.K wake-up? It is not the E.U they should have left it is a Political System that does not answer to their needs. I voted for Brexit but I had a Strategy. I wanted to use Brexit to reform the E.U or form a new Union.

Brexit was an Ace in any reform negotiations and we threw it away.

There is little in the way of People Democracy in the U.K only a Political Power Elite who still do not listen and without doubt do not understand Economics.

The U.K is leaving a Trading Group which will only get bigger and stronger. Where is the U.K going? Mexico? Australia? Vietnam? China?

The U.K could have reformed the E.U and become a major part of the future of the World. But now no longer will we be able to ensure our interests are shared with the World. As May illustrated in Florence this week we now excel in bending over to whoever holds the purse strings.

Farage should have created an economic plan for the future. He did not. I doubt if he will be considered an idol by the many who in years to come will only see Brexit as a lost opportunity to reform the E.U and partake in its leadership.
