Into Fog [Feb. 15th, 2019|03:48 pm]
Tony Grist
As we drove down hill into Paddock Wood we passed from sunshine into fog. "Like entering fairyland," said the lady at the charity shop.

Earlier I'd been in the Post Office. The guy ahead of me was doing some sort of business involving Europe. Perhaps he was renewing a passport. The clerk said, "We're having to tell all our customers that after March 29th..." Personally, I don't think Brexit is going to happen. The establishment don't want it and are used to getting their own way. I think they'll ask for an extension- and then perhaps for another- until such time as the political situation has changed so much (perhaps the EU will implode or morph into a rather different organisation) that the decision we made at the referendum no longer applies.

My fear is that we will crash out due to sheer incompetence. I also don't see how the establishment will stop it, unless they finally get their act together to declare the referendum null and void due to the illegalities of the Leave campaign and the foreign money that was swilling around buying dodgy Facebook ads.

It may be that the establishment don't want it, but May seems to, as do the ERG and they're pretty establishment. Everyone said that Trump would never get elected, but he was. Brexit is the same and I currently see no way out. Even another referendum cannot be guaranteed to produce a Remain result.

Regarding an extension, the EU would have to agree unanimously, and there are a few countries who might not want all the uncertainty continuing.

Well, we'll see. The deadline is little more than a month away now...

Oh, that would be great if they decided to hold on further. We shall see.

It's a time of change. Expect the unexpected.
