The Politicians Need to Get Out of the Way

To some, the EU has become a bi-word for some pretty unhealthy things: waste, unnecessary regulation, bureaucracy, and blatant self-interest to name but a few. The original good intentions to free up trade and encourage better relations amongst member countries have been hi-jacked by bloated hangers on.

The cost of membership and the interference in everyday life associated with it are too high to continue. For others, the stability and security that membership of the EU brings are too much to consider ever being without.

Whether the Brexit vote will help the EU in the future remains to be seen. Whether the Brexit vote will help the UK in the future also remains to be seen. But the fact is that a government elected by the people asked the people if they wanted to remain in the EU, and a majority of the people told them that they didn’t.

The result of the referendum was a surprise. Markets, politicians, & the press don’t seem to like surprises and re-acted badly. Despite the fact that the current underlying data looks to be holding up, many people are pointing to the future to highlight negatives that may or may not come to fruition. The disasters predicted post-Brexit have yet to happen though, people are getting on with their lives and things are returning back to how they would have been had Brexit not happened.

Feelings on both sides of the Brexit debate ran high and continue to do so. But whether you agree with the outcome or not the result was clear.

For everyone’s sake we now need to move on.

The lingering bad feelings caused by the result and the uncertainty hanging over businesses while things are sorted have to be put to end.

We need a clear plan and timetable for exiting the EU and we need a clear vision of what the UK will be in the future, coupled with a plan of how this can be achieved.

There is an awful lot to be proud about the UK and now surely is the time to be focussing on this. The UK is a place where people want to learn, want to work, want to live, and want to do business. British brands, however defined, still command a premium in peoples’ minds around the world and in a global economy we should recognise what this means, and look to build on it.

For once we need our politicians and those in authority to be bold and decisive, put self-interest and bad feeling to one side, and create a blue print for capitalising on all that we should be proud about in the UK. We should all then pull together to make this happen. Anyone that tries to stand in the way of this happening should be held to account for what they are.
