Brexit - The Chequered Flag

Amusing to see small government conservative types get excited about the prospect of the state interfering in the free market.

 

Any business making investments in the UK is of course welcome, but we've a long long way to go before we can recover the ground lost due to Brexit, never mind the damage to the economy during the various lockdowns of the last year.

I'm sure it felt right when you posted it but this is laughable. Reducing taxes and removing barriers to enterprise is not state interference in the marketplace. It's the state enabling the business to do its thing unfettered. Getting Brexit done was a good example. The future is brighter than it's been in a long time, just not here in Scotland. To enjoy the same opportunities as the rest of the UK we first have to rid ourselves of the dreadful SNP and its playground fantasy of claymores and kilts, otherwise we will see continuing state interference in everything.

The desire (in certain circles) for the UK to fail, post-Brexit, really is palpable at times.

 

Odd and amusing.

It’s certainly odd

I was of course referring to state aid which you clearly advocated.

Odd and amusing.

The Guardian and BBC are prime examples, talking up the EU and magnifying quite small Brexit issues. The EU sycophants really can't get over the fact that project fear didn't materialise, we signed a good deal and have already agreed over 70 initial trade agreements on the same or better terms.

 

That together with a wake up call on what the EU is really about as witnessed by their ongoing vaccine fiasco has been a real eye opener for many and it is only the hard core usual suspects who continue to laud the EU. To be honest I cannot see why some of these cannot just bugger of to the continent as the open for business UK will not miss them and their negativity.

Can you provide some examples of what you feel we have lost due to Brexit? 

 

I would have thought state aid would be in new industries such as renewable's to replace the ailing oil industry, not propping up failing business - all of which should be welcome, especially in Scotland as more rigs are put out of commission and less exploration is happening. But then again I find the SNP and its supporters are not that enlightened.

What’s the point? It’s done now.    As for state aid, I’m not against the idea, just musing about the irony of the situation.

Just thought that you had something specific that you view as an ongoing failure.

Nothing I’ve not already stated.  It’s been a shitshow from start to finish

Yes nothing like true democracy in action to rumple a few feathers.
