Its been no secret that since the British people voted to leave the European Union EU officials have unleashed their venom on Britain and decided that the only way to prevent other countries from leaving is to punish us for our decision. Since Michel Barnier’s flying visit to 10 Downing Street a few days ago and after our doormat of a PM Theresa May has acquiesced to many of the EU’s demands (quite a few of them reasonable such as the rights of EU nationals and the Irish border), it appears here is where the EU is going to play hardball and its not going to be nice.
It appears the EU not only wants to steal the only sector of the UK that is doing well (the financial sector) it also wants to stifle any kind of productivity in the UK in the form of being able to seek trade agreements with countries outside the EU and prevent them being implemented. The agreement also reveals the worst fears of Brexiteers in that the “transitional agreement” is not transitional at all, it will end up being a pergatory from which the UK will not be able to escape. This is unacceptable and detrimental not only to the UK interests but to other European countries in the same manner that sanctions against Russia at the behest of the USA have damaged the EU economy. It can safely be demonstrated that the EU indeed has a death wish and is parasitical in nature in that it feasts upon the corpses of the economies of EU countries in order to sustain itself at all costs. It doesn’t matter if EU countries crash and burn around them (witness Catalonia’s 2 votes for independence from Spain where the Catalan PM has been exiled to Brussels), if people are unemployed and unable to sustain themselves and their families so long as the EU itself remains intact.
It appears that EU officials are so full of themselves and so blind to their narcissitic actions that slavish adherence to the Kalerghi plan is the only thing that matters even though in the end it will end up disposing of the EU in its entirety.
Although I have wavered in my support of leaving the EU as we were lied to during the referendum which I think is beneath our so-called leaders who are really sheep, there have been many advantages of being a member of the EU. Unfortunately these are now being eroded very quickly as the final stages of the Kalerghi plan are to take place. The result of the actions being taken by the EU leaders and negotiators are only strengthening resolve among the British that perhaps leaving without a trade deal, particularly if it means that their vindictive behaviour would result in the UK being strangled and tossed aside like a half eaten sandwich would not be as bad as one had previously imagined. Already in London I have witnessed a change in that prior to the Christmas period London seemed so full of people, traffic strangled your every breath now there is much less traffic, fewer people and I can actually get a seat on the train and on the bus all the time. That there are fewer EU nationals should also feed into better quality jobs being available for British people which will also mean better pay sooner rather than later.
Businesses have been complaining that there does not seem to be any definitive direction in which negotiations are heading and they were not able to make contingency plans or invest for the future. If this document does anything it confirms that businesses should plan for the future with vigour, invest more and seek further markets outside the EU. Businesses seem quick to take the easy route to make a profit, although profits are now becoming harder to create and sustain as it becomes clear the capitalist system is falling apart. Two large contractors for public services have gone bust since the start of 2018 and it will mean a complete overhaul of the current system which will include now we are to be taxed in order for future jobs and prosperity to be enjoyed by many people rather than just a few. This isn’t something to be scared of, au contraire, this is a necessity. There are far too many casual jobs that pay very little, this is not good for the economy and ensures only stagflation which is self perpetuating.
One only has to look at the housing market where “affordable housing” currently being built in London starts at £300,000 for a 1 bedroom apartment. When the person in charge of ensuring that all new build developments have “affordable housing” we were told that someone earning £95,000 should be able to afford to buy it. How many people earn that kind of money? It’s not affordable its over priced and not sustainable. Affordable in my opinion is for someone earning the average salary in London of £25,000 to be able to afford to buy a property which should be priced in the region of £70,000 and I don’t mean a sub-standard shoe box you can’t swing a cat in.
No, however tough circumstances are for businesses at the moment it really is time for businesses to really invest in their own workforce for the longterm future. Schools, colleges and universities can only do so much, the rest has to come from businesses to invest the time to show employees what is expected of them, how they are to perform their duties. In this way they can produce better quality goods and services which benefit the customer which in turn means a better outcome for the company and profitability. Charging a fair (not exorbitant) price for goods and services and giving value for money always wins out. I certainly foresee a United Kingdom where taking care of each other in business and life will ensure we have a better, more sustainable future ahead of ourselves without the need for spiteful action by European leaders. If they want to cut off their noses to spite their faces then so be it. There will always be those will want to trade with the UK and its time for our politicians to stand up against this malicious offensive against us for having the temerity to reject their false ideology.
