the uk, and how not to manage a country June 12, 2017

Posted by Bradley in : Uncategorized , trackback

Last week’s election followed months of the UK not managing Brexit at all well, in contrast to the efficient, bureaucratic way the EU seems to have managed its end of the process (to be fair the EU institutions have much more recent experience of thinking about trade and EU-treaty related issues than anyone in the UK Government seems to have had). The election result might have been seen as an opportunity to take on board some of the mountains of evidence of the downsides of Brexit – especially a hard Brexit – in particular parliamentary committees have generated a number of very worrying reports. This doesn’t seem to be happening yet. More importantly the powers that be don’t seem to be responding with any more competence to the current situation than they did to the initial post-referendum period, or to running an election. This doesn’t bode very well for the future of the country.
