There seems to be a lot of worry, angst and hysteria from the Remain camp about the trade issue and what is going to happen on 24 June after we have voted to leave the EU.
They forget what the 2 year transition period is for. We don’t leave the EU at the stroke of midnight on 23 June, much as many if us would like to. Contrary to all the alarmist talk, every county in the EU that trades with the UK has as much stake as we do to make the transition work. No company wants to lose out on trade opportunities.
On 24 June the negotiations start to make things work. The last thing the EU will want is the massive disruption to trade that Brenainers are fantasising about. European and British firms will continue their primary goal – to make money.
Also after Brexit the EU will be in a much more vulnerable situation than us. We will know where we are heading, they will be worrying about the secession from the EU by other member states, especially in the east. Meanwhile EU governments are going to be under enormous pressure from their businesses to sort things out quickly and minimise any disruption and uncertainty.
Bremainers seem to have got themselves into a bit of a tizzy when there is really nothing to worry about. What happened to the British stiff upper lip? It’s a bit embarrassing to see many of our fellow citizens in such an irrational state of fear and timidity.
But don’t worry there will be paper bags on hand for them to blow into until they come to terms with the fact that everything’s fine!
