So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

Recommended Posts

Because it showed a lack of belief in Britain's place in the world or it's ability to influence the bureaucracy (hardly surprising since agitators in the Tory Party have meant whenever they're in power Britain has has one foot outside for years). It was a retreat into ourselves, away from the rest of the world, a lack of confidence in ourselves. That's bound to be followed by a few fallow years. It's like a divorce, we're going to spend time on the couch eating pizza feeling sorry for ourselves but eventually we'll start dating again.

Can I just shock you; the vast majority of the world aren't in Europe and we're in the process of negotiating and agreeing trade deals with them. How exactly is that retreating into ourselves and away from the rest of the world?

Yes that was the rhetoric used during the campaign. I'll be pleasantly surprised if that happens, particularly since America is also entering one of it's periods of isolationism. Especially since the vote was primarily driven by immigration concerns - and the Government has no choice but to act on that expression of the public will (sadly). How can we slam shut the borders and say we're open to business to the world at the same time? I'm worried that we've built our own psychological Mexican Wall.

We are not negotiating from a position of strength. As a nation we are on the back foot and are going to get shafted with all the "deals" they tell us are coming our way.

No we aren't. I agree if we went in with your attitude we would be!!
