Will of the people wrong on Brexit
European council president Donald Tusk has said that the choice for Britain is clear: it must be ‘hard Brexit’ or ‘no Brexit’. As prime minister Theresa May has made clear, ‘Brexit means Brexit’, a catchphrase that suggests a hardline stance on Bitish disentanglement from the EU - its benefits as much as from its bureaucratic hindrances - and triggering artile 50 of the Lisbon Treaty in March should therefore mean a more isolated, less economically successful and moral insular UK. In effect Britain is about to shoot itself in the foot, gleefully colluding in its own forthcoming pain.And this is definitely going to hurt. The will of the British people has spoken and certainly there are manifold problems with the fascist-elitist nature of much EU fiscal policy as well as the legal difficulties in applying terms across all member states who each have different political and socio-economic realities. Austerity was endorsed by Brussels and what all countries in the grip of financial crisis require a more Keynesian approach - more investment at the very moment of bust rather than less.
