    Why Focus on Africa and not Europe

    Our trade with Europe is hundreds of Billions. Why is The Government having a trade mission to Africa. Our trade with them is less than 10 Billion.

    Why are we pushing a Cabinet Brexit document to the EU that does not improve our chances of promoting trade to America.

    Why is the government focusing on a compromise with The EU that is worse than being in The EU,

    It is clear that The Government is unable to agree themselves and they are coming up with a document that is a compromise and is a complete waste of time.

    Its not a good idea to destroy ourselves. It is better to stay in Europe and push for reforms within the Union.

    Second Referendum is our only hope

    The Election failed to show us any way forward.We are now in a worse situation.
    We have to reconsider our situation and ask the public to reconsider their situation NOW before we negotiate with the EU
    We need to have another referendum.
    We also need to state on the voting document

    If we vote out it will make us poorer.

    If we vote in our economy will be better

    Another hole in the head for The Government

    Now The Government is on the back seat mainly because of their own demise. in The Election.

    The only answer now is a soft or weaker Brexit.

    But is it worth going through the pain considering a soft or weaker weaker Brexit.

    Why not save the turmoil and have another referendum. Maybe the younger voters will now realise they have to vote and Brexit will be forgotten

    Brexit and an Election WHAT NEXT ?

    Having an election before Brexit. This appears to gives the Government a chance to impose more ways of getting our money. ie rewrite the Manifesto.
    WHOSE THE PENSIONER VOTING CONSERVATIVE

    The country has also had to accept for years that dementia is not an illness and we have to pay for it. Really?

    Now The Government are kidding us that 100 K is the way forward and we should be content with the government allowing us to keep 100 K of our inheritance. By the way you pay everything else over when  your dead.

    The election is unfortunately a diversion. We should be thinking more about Brexit and dealing with it.

    We have unfortunately managed to get ourselves into voting for Brexit because Cameron could not work with the European Union. There is a need for The European Union to change attitude and work more for the countries they represent.

    That does not mean we stop immigrants. Control it maybe if you can.

    We need immigrants from Europe to work with us and for us. So why don’t we go with Europe policy for now and wait for  them modify their immigration policy. There is nothing stopping us monitoring the immigration without restriction unless they are criminal etc.

    Trading-do we want to trade outside The European Union . Europe are are neighbours and our friends. We should trade with them first. They are on our doorstep.

    Are the conservatives going in the right way to improve living and trading conditions. I think not.

     

     

     

     

     

    THE POWER OF THE EU

    Leaving The EU is much more complicated than we all thought. Do we continue in it and change the rules.

    Employment- We still need to allow employers employ Euro Nationals. We have do not have enough trained educated candidates in the UK. Extreme control over stopping immigration will be harmful and disaster for us.

    Trade- its good that we could get trading with who we want. There is still a strong need to continual trading with Europe.running the two systems would be better for all EU Members

    Election is a bit of a gamble

    Half the country never wanted to get out of Europe. They still do not.
    They will not vote Labour because it would be a wasted vote.
    They could vote Lib Dem hoping that a power shift away from The Conservatives will dilute a Hard Brexit.

    Brexit again it will not go away

    We had the vote because the politicians could not decide whether we stayed in The EU.
    Just over half of the country agreed to leave.
    We are really still in a position where half the country wants to stay in.
    How can we find a solution to sort this.
    The only answer is we have to go forward in the interest of the country. NOT THE INDIVIDUAL.

    Brexit is still not looking well

    The government seem to be doing what governments are good at. Do every thing the population do not want.

    Most people probably voted out because the EU would not listen and would not put some control over immigration. I say control I do not mean preventing or creating state registers.

    I agree Human rights also made it difficult for governments to have some control ie to prevent the wrong people getting into a country. How far do we want to control. We will never be able to control everyone and why would we want to.

    SECURITY ISSUES

    Most of the cameras installed in UK government sites appear to be made in China.
    Its time the orders were given to a company that is UK based.

    Hinkley Point Power Station the other issue- Will it ever get built maybe The Government takes that view.
    We will see how we get on with the high powered batteries concept that is built into houses to store wind and solar energy.

    The UK Now

    Our main focus should be to deal with Brexit

    The panic is over and we appear to have calmed down. Everything is geared to EU finance or put it another way our finance that goes to the EU.

    We need to re structure all this so it works for us.

    We appear to be floating on air and need some solid policies to show we are taking the break with EU.

    The meeting of the Mayor of Paris and The Mayor of London was a good start.Most countries have Mayors and it needs to be used to link in with these countries.
