Re: Rishi Sunak is Prime Minister

They're going to have to find a way to ease trade with the EU soon. There are no big prospective trade deals coming down the line and it's been 3 years since we were officially out.

A Bloomberg article reckons Brexit Is Costing the UK £100 Billion a Year in Lost Output.

The current government is too under the thumb of the ERG so I can't see Sunak stepping up.

Re: Rishi Sunak is Prime Minister

Electoral wipeout can be a powerful motivator and at the moment closer trade ties with the EU seems like a fast way to achieve some growth. You just make sure you don't touch EU legislation - other than adopting similar standards which we already do anyway - and free movement.

The ERG can whine all they like but they'll have to ask themselves what's their alternative since their promised trade deals never materialised and their 'cut taxes to achieve growth' mantra backfired under Truss that the argument won't wash anytime soon.

The mismanagement was Johnson's desire for a quick deal at any cost and the subsequent stifling of common sense alignments under pressure from the ERG.

Sunak knows that but convincing the Party to back him is a different matter.

Their alternative is more deregulation.

The danger they face is that if they don't accept closer alignment to the EU, the country will get poorer and support for re-joining the EU will grow.

I still think they'll stick to their guns.

“The British population was never going to accept a state in which the NHS would be demolished, where free education would be severely limited, where regulation with regard to employment would be thrown apart. It was just complete and total absolute lies.”

Re: Rishi Sunak is Prime Minister


I got this nonsense from Sunak today.

Quote:
Three years ago today - we got Brexit done.

In the three years since leaving the EU, we’ve made huge strides in harnessing the freedoms unlocked by Brexit to tackle generational challenges.

We've forged a path as an independent nation with confidence by:

1. Taking back control of our borders — ending freedom of movement and replacing it with a points-based immigration system.

2. Introducing a Retained EU Law Bill — ending the special status of EU law, and ensuring that all remaining retained EU Law is either repealed or assimilated into UK domestic law by the end of this year.

3. Striking new trade deals — with over 70 countries around the world.

4. Making tax laws fairer — removing VAT on essential items like tampons and simplifying EU alcohol duty rates.

In my first 100 days as Prime Minister, we've carried on making the most of Brexit opportunities by cutting red tape for businesses, levelling up through our freeports, and designing our own, fairer farming system to protect the British countryside.
He'll be filling a car that he doesn't own up with petrol next and then wondering how to pay for it.

I don't think the "Taking back control of our borders" will land well with Party members given the increased immigration via small vessels and the post-Brexit related inability to repatriate them to the EU country they came from.
(But the government did end freedom of movement from/to the EU and did introduce a points-based immigration system.)

A WhatsApp group once used to support Liz Truss' leadership campaign has begun to see several MPs joining once again, sources have told Sky News.

The former prime minister is said to be on manoeuvres with fellow like-minded MPs ahead of the Budget to lobby the government for tax cuts.
Amazing! How on earth she thinks anyone in the country wants to hear from her on how to manage the economy. Sunak must be losing his mind.

People want decent public services, a decent health service, and inflation/energy/grocery prices not to be crippling them. Tax cut calls are mostly coming from the super rich .
Still the wrong priority Dizzy Lizzy and her swivel eyed loons...

Re: Rishi Sunak is Prime Minister

The only person that brought Liz Truss down was her herself.

Would it not be nice if politicians nowadays owned the conseqences of their decisions rather then taking the cowardly immoral way out and blaming others.

Re: Rishi Sunak is Prime Minister

This is embarrassing. She has been poorly advised and needs to keep a low profile to stop reminding us of the day she damaged the economy.
