As Brexit moves towards the critical Parliamentary votes, the debate is changing fundamentally, with some honesty finally breaking out. Those who spent the last two years endlessly repeating the mantra that “No deal is better than a bad deal” have hit the TV and radio studios to argue that Theresa May’s bad deal should be accepted because the alternative is “No deal” which, they now rightly say, would be a catastrophe. Even more significantly, claims that the country will be more prosperous have been abandoned. The government’s own analysis has nailed that argument beyond challenge – except by the most extreme expert-denying Brexiteers. Even Jacob Rees Mogg has said that we won’t know for 50 years, while the Chancellor confirmed that the UK would be worse off under every option outside the EU. Instead, both the Chancellor and Prime Minister are arguing for her deal on the basis that failing to deliver on the result of the 2016 referendum … [Read more...] about ConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlight The government’s silence on immigration tightens its blindfold on Brexit
LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May will urge parliament to back her Brexit deal on Tuesday at the start of a high-stakes five-day debate that could determine her fate and whether Britain leaves the European Union without a deal. FILE PHOTO - Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May addresses the media during the G20 Leaders Summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina December 1, 2018. REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins May’s plan to keep close ties with the EU after leaving has been criticised by Brexit supporters and opponents alike, leaving her struggling to secure parliament’s approval in a vote that will follow the debate on Dec. 11. If, against the odds, she wins the vote, Britain will leave the EU on March 29 under terms negotiated with Brussels — the country’s biggest shift in trade and foreign policy for more than 40 years. If she loses, May could call for a second vote on the deal. But defeat would increase the chances of Britain leaving … [Read more...] about May launches high-stakes parliamentary debate on Brexit plan
The results of the 2018 midterms erect a roadblock against Donald Trump’s legislative agenda, and will allow the US Democrats to initiate federal investigations into Trump’s conduct and links to the Russian state. They also saw a handful of breakthroughs in terms of the diversity of Congress, with the first native American woman and the first Muslim woman, as well as the election of America’s first openly gay governor. But really what these elections delivered was final proof, if any were needed, that the far right is the new normal. A huge proportion of the American population gave a vote of confidence to a President whose policies include locking migrant children in cages, banning Muslims from the country, and denying the existence of climate change. The results also showed a continuing political polarisation from which a new left is emerging. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was the most prominent successful candidate backed by the Democratic Socialists of America, but … [Read more...] about ConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlight On immigration, the European left can learn from their US counterparts
