It's just so hard to see any potential upside. And so easy to count dozens of potential downsides.
Come come lpm such pessimism is unbecoming, shall I list all the upsides we’ve already had.
... had the easiest trade deal in history
... retained all the benefits of the single market
... saved ourselves the £39bn divorce fee.
... signed 40 FTAs by March 2019.
... negotiated better FTAs then we already had.
... joined the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
... resurrected the British Empire 2.0.
... increased investment in the NHS by £350m per week.
... saw the pound surge in value.
... saw economic growth to make North Korea blush.
... strengthened our relationships with our European allies.
... halted immigration overnight
... prevented the 70m Turks now in the EU from coming to Britain ... and all the Iraqis and Syrians too.
... killed off the far right and slashed racist hate crimes at a stroke.
... ensured Scotland will remain part of the UK.
... kept NI an integral part of the UK.
... took a world leadership position in fighting climate change.
... maintained our research funding.
... increased regional infrastructure investment.
... improved the WTO.
... enhanced British Parliamentary sovereignty.
... saved billions in unnecessary no-deal preparations.
... restored pride in the British legal system.
... united the nation once more.
... and so many others.
All exactly as promised. Now with such an impressive record of delivering on their promises you must accept it is just churlish to express scepticism that the Brexiteers won’t continue to maintain their awesome streak of success.
