The pragmatic issues to be faced come in two forms. One required option is a clear statement of what hard Brexit actually means and what planning is needed for it, with a timescale and costing attached. I suppose we can hope that this is what the 58 risk assessments on Brexit might provide, but I am ready to be severely disappointed. What I do know is that in the absence of that information no informed decision other than to stay within the EU can be made. After all, rationally in that absence we are quite literally leaping into the unknown. I stress, I am saying this in the absence of any viable alternative in the situation I describe.
You know, maybe we just do it and let the market take the strain? That being the right way to do most things rather than trying to plan everything?
And it would require the support of a national government created, temporarily, in the national interest.
Ooooh, yes! Let’s have all of the political class on the other side from the majority of those who voted on the issue. That would be Curajus, wouldn’t it?
Whilst doing all that the power of a hopelessly biased press has to be addressed and the BBC has to be allowed to be politically free.
Eh? We should have state propaganda but not the private expression of political thoughts?
We face a political crisis of a scale I have never previously imagined now.
Cometh the hour cometh the man.
