Smile also serves to create reality.
The United Kingdom has been paralyzed for six years, but its rulers have smiled at the population to believe that they live a completely normal life.
These are the four prime ministers in six years: David Cameron, Theresa May, Boris Johnson and Liz Truss. All from the Conservative Party. The first two resigned as victims of Brexit and in the case of Boris for lying and corrupting.
It was David Cameron who detonated the Brexit grenade. He was the one who called a referendum in 2016 demanding that his party members be appeased in return for their support. May arrived and refused to acknowledge that without Brexit, the United Kingdom would be in a better economic position; Johnson came or didn’t. Now it’s Liz Truss who needs to create a runway for Brexiteers to become a reality. this will not happen.
The UK economy is 5.5% smaller if the country had not taken the Brexit route (Center for European Reform). That is, its price is 31,000 million pounds. This is not what Cameron, May, Johnson and Truss said. They won’t tell.
And they won’t because the Brexit issue has become a political/election argument. An example of this was the massive victory of the Conservative Party (Boris Johnson) over Labor (Jeremy Corbyn) in the 2019 elections. More freedom, more sovereignty, more wealth: components of the same vector called Brexit; Boris flag.
The pandemic and war in Ukraine served to hide Boris Johnson’s inability to govern. Cynical like some others, he threw himself into the arms of Ukraine’s defense to cover up the crisis his post-Covid parties exposed, but to overcome his traces of corruption, contracted his friends. To hand over or solicit favors from businessmen.
Boris Johnson does not acknowledge the crisis that opened up with the implementation of Brexit, January 1, 2021: Huge lines of trucks and cars at gas stations as non-British drivers leave the country. Nor did he mention the absence of basic products on supermarket shelves. Little was accepted that the money his country had allocated to Brussels would not go to the health sector.
A responsible phrase from Liz Truss, assuming the government, would be the following: Britons, we need to talk: The reality is that Brexit has seriously damaged our economy.
Truss was friendly with Johnson on Monday: “You did Brexit, you crushed Jeremy Corbyn, you successfully launched the vaccine campaign and you stood up to Putin.” Yes, but he didn’t tell the truth about Brexit.
Nor did he say anything about whether he would follow in Johnson’s footsteps in attempting to violate the Northern Ireland Protocol. Strategic section to maintain peace in the region.
