Brexit Food and Drugs Crisis

"Supporters of a hard Brexit will no doubt see this as yet another scare story. But their opinion that everything will be alright, that we will weather this storm as we did the Blitz, is a form of magical thinking. This is what happens without trade deals. It is analogous to having no money and no access to a supermarket – the fridge and presses will not fill up by magic. Without a trade deal the UK will run out of food. This is an economic and mathematical certainty. The time to “wake up” has come and gone. This is not a drill. If things continue as they are – and it looks like they will – we will be faced with extreme food and pharmaceutical shortages and people will die."

The Rudderless State

"We are, quite literally, a country adrift. We have no effective government. No effective Parliament. No effective allies. No effective vision. No understanding of what our state is any more. Or our country, come to that. No idea where it is going. No popular philosophy telling us that there is an alternative. No effective opposition to promote another option. We have nothing at all. I never expected to live in a Rudderless State. But that is where I now am. And it does not appeal." - Come On Scotland! Wake Up!

Surely Not...

Mrs May said it was a good outcome and it gave us most of what we wanted.  With thanks to Matt.
