I would like a hard-line Brexiter to give me one good reason for it. I don’t want to hear about immigration or making Britain great or Global UK. All that is pie in the sky, more spin, more hot air.
There will be no bonanza of jobs for jobless Britons; it will be years before we have a workforce able to take on existing low paid jobs. As for highly skilled jobs in our universities and health system there is no chance in the foreseeable future that we will not need skilled people from abroad. In fact Brexit could well reduce that workforce disastrously.
The big players, USA, China and the EU will extract their pound of flesh for every trade deal. The USA in particular has, ever since WWII, obtained the maximum benefit from any trade deals especially from the UK, think Lend-Lease.
So come on. What’s in it for us, the ordinary citizen of the UK?
