Brexit … the great divorce

I have been married for 36 years.  Others are not that lucky, and unfortunately many marriages end in divorce.  Britain’s attachment to the EU is one such case.

Our government is launching into negotiations with the EU.  Let’s see if they are taking good advice.

Clearly it is best to negotiate Brexit in a “sensible, co-operative manner”.   It does not do anyone any good to start by making unrealistic demands and expecting to get your own way on everything.

So far all I have seen is uncompromising posturing for the UK press.

I would prefer our negotiations to be led by a government that is “Fair and Reasonable” rather than one which prides itself on pretending to be “Strong and Stable”.

That is another reason that I will be voting Labour on June 8th.

PS – here is advice on negotiating with the EU, which backs up the above http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/theresa-may-brexit-tactics-wrong-eu-former-greek-finance-minister-yanis-varoufakis-a7721151.html
