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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We are slowing the momentum of Brexit and its creating uncertain times for us and Europe.
We now need to restore the economy before it dives.
Reduce VAT to 15%
Scrap NEW Stamp Duty Increases and Buy to Let extra Stamp Duty Charges.
Start a National Council House Building Project.
Offer building and development grants to industry and business.
Offer EXPORT Incentives and enable Private or Public Companies to promote their products through Embassy networks
Reduce Capital Gains Tax to 10%
Sounds like property prices are moving up again after Brexit and Osborne’s war on Buy to Lets.,
We might be able to keep the Chinese out of our Nuclear Power stations ie with the failure in France similar production the American Problem and the Australian Problem.
Brexit seems to be going into the slow lane.Not good if we want to develop our overseas trade. We need that overseas trade now. Why wait to develop trade contracts we are leaving anyway.
Lowering interest rates does not help us. We need the pound to get stronger. No a lot but just enough to stop companies in Europe surcharging us for their loss on selling
to us with a lower pound.
The Companies in Europe really need to get round this by selling their products in euros not pounds.However it appears they can make more money this way.
Therefore lowering the interest rate seems to lower the pound and can boost exports and increase costs of imports. Plus It does not stimulate us to spend more or borrow more.
May be it is time to dump this project. EDF will find it difficult to complete this project. It is expensive electricity. China will be in the middle and it could be a political nightmare. We need to consider smaller nuclear units or push other projects such as gas wind and solar. Keep it small and not link it to countries outside Europe or America. Osborne was not on sound ground when he went for Chinese investment on such a large project.Maybe
The UK Government needs to raise money and create an ENERGY BOND-also use EU Grants and Consider UK and European Companies
