This Brexit lark is getting very confusing.
Our gubmint is going into a tailspin and declaring that we are going to run out of everything, that civil [nuclear?] war is going to break out on the island and that there will be no more tourists. Also the seas are going to be sucked clear of any fish.
I can only deduce from this that we are facing one of two scenarios. Either there is going to be a twenty foot wall topped with razor wire and with gun towers every fifty feet right around the UK or else the UK is going to miraculously vanish overnight. I don’t know what is going to happen to the fish.
It would be interesting to see either scenario but then the UK has stuck itself into an impossible conundrum. By my understanding, they now legally have to leave on October the 31st but they have passed a law saying they can’t leave. So presumably if they do leave [under EU law] they are breaking their own law and will then have to arrest themselves which might not be a bad thing.
Equally if they do manage to leave they either have to set up customs posts in Norn Iron [under EU regulations] or they have to leave the border as it is [under the Good Friday Agreement]..They can’t do both.
My own prediction is a simple one. When Brexit happens, nothing will happen. There will be a period during which we all stare around us and wonder that the sun [or rain] is still in the sky and we are not all dead. Then prices for absolutely everything will go up.
Brexit will be a great excuse to hike prices.
