Contrary to Prime Minister Theresa May's Electioneering Comment, the 27 remaining EU countries are not "lining up to oppose" the UK's Brexit plans. They are sticking to the rules. We joined the EU club because it is in our financial/economic... Continue reading

Brexit: A Second Chance In terms of difficulty, Brexit is not we, the British people, clipping our toenails. Brexit is we, the British people, performing open heart surgery on ourselves. As that penny drops I hope that we, the British... Continue reading

Dear Sharoane, Though we share a common tongue, we all speak a different language and are responsible for our interpretations of the words expressed by others. If by "faith" you mean "religious faith" it was definitely not my intention to encourage anyone to that conclusion. If that conclusion were to occur it would be, for me, a matter of regret. However, I am not responsible for the interpretation of others and can only hope we wield our disparate "faiths" with kindness (though, of course, that word is also open to disparate interpretations :-).

We have yet to recover from the 2008 crash. Austerity is still with us and shows little sign of evaporating. Yet, we'll renegotiate 43 years of deals, intertwined business protocols and complex procedural arrangements and recover from Brexit smoothly, quickly,... Continue reading
