Thomas Engstrom: Brexit is swallowing up all the oxygen in British politics

Thomas Engstrom: Brexit is swallowing up all the oxygen in British politics

It is not easy to keep up with the mood swings of the British. A majority of voters today believe Brexit was a mistake – in fact, they would even vote for reunification. Sometime in 2024, there will be an election that looks like a huge win for Labor, which is certainly not insignificant in context. What is decisive, however, at least for the future, is that Britain and the EU will evaluate a divorce deal next year.

One factor in what already feels like the longest election campaign in history is how the Liberal Democrats fared last time. In the 2019 election, party leader Jo Swinson walked out of Parliament after campaigning for a new referendum to withdraw England’s withdrawal notification. A few weeks ago he had said that he could become the next Prime Minister of the country. The party ended up getting 11 mandates out of 650.

This is a disaster Even today it can be seen in the representatives of the party. Of course, they are the ones you can find in a country that is still very friendly to the EU. . They were right in 2019, the conclusion seems, but it would be wrong to say so. Also, it annoys them that public opinion also catches up with them. If only he had kept his mouth shut for a few more years!

Low, but hardly non-existent. Especially considering the gentle progress of Labor leader Keir Starmer. Because while the Liberal Democrats seem soft, Labor seems almost paralyzed.

Starmer can’t even admit that Brexit is behind the disastrous, and unique, low growth in the UK since 2016. It is painfully clear that Starmer does not want Brexit to be discussed. The referendum must be respected, the only thing that matters now is “getting Brexit done”.

The only problem is, he’ll learn the hard way that it won’t work. A future Labor government risks spending two futile terms trying to salvage what can be salvaged from a disaster. After that voters will lose patience.

Brexit sucks all the oxygen out of British politics because it doesn’t add to the equation. You can’t live next door to the world’s strongest business community without affecting your existence. The irony of this is that the British had some opportunity to protect themselves from new European innovations as long as they were members – but now?

Talking about Starmer That there should be a renegotiated agreement. It cannot be ruled out that his new government will initially meet with some warmth in Brussels because it is something different from the hopeless Tories from 2010. But sooner or later during the renegotiations the EU will find Starmer suffering from the same delusions as his predecessor.

The difference is that this turnaround will be limited to the EU reaching a solution. Every month, the British suffer more from Brexit than the EU; Every week Britain acts as a deterrent example to other member states of the Union.

So the long sentence continues. It won’t end until a new generation of leaders in London do what everyone throughout history has done: send out the membership application with a dressed-up smile.
