I saw some very important euro mp types on the tv news this morning. They were talking about how they were going to teach the uk a harsh lesson for leaving as a warning to others. It all sounded rather sinister and left me wondering if these are the freedoms and conditions that will help expand the euro club moving forwards. Once you join you cannot escape or we will punish you. In fact the image of adulterous wives being stoned in far flung countries as a warning to others sprang to mind. All very noble I'm sure.
In fact I've digested a lot of info regarding the negotiations and some of the rhetoric is rather dramatic, on a cliff edge, the sky falling in. I think this is revolving around the psychological fact that the uk is 'leaving'. But the reality is that Europe is equally negotiating with us and so they can indeed put their straight bananas up their bottoms. Let's take just one industry, say wine, well good luck to the French and Italian governments happily announcing they have negotiated a 30% tariff on all exports to the lucrative uk market. Bet the people will be pleased about the lesson They are teaching us. And perhaps more people will vote to leave euro and join the new club we create.
