I might as well start with the big one. There is a lot of confusion surrounding Brexit and as a result, the ‘thinkers’ among us are craving clarity. Join me as I try to cut through the noise. Read on.
If you missed my first post you’ll need to go back at this point and read it in order to

The mood of the British people is hard to judge on the issue of Brexit. I personally don’t read, watch, or listen to the news but according to unnamed sources who eat their lunch close to friends of MPs, who claim to have met members of the shadow cabinet, Brexit is going to “wrexit”.
Politically and meteorologically the climate is forecasted to change dramatically post Brexit not to mention the damage it is sure to cause the UK’s economic and topographical landscape going forward. It will become more difficult, by orders of magnitude, to negotiate trade deals as sea levels rise higher and higher around parliament buildings.
Brexiteers continue to deny the settled science linking Brexit to rising water levels in the Thames estuary. It seems sadly inevitable that short people will be disproportionately affected.
It’s not all doom and gloom though. One unanticipated positive of sea levels rising post-Brexit is that the fishing industry is expected to benefit, not only from a ban on EU vessels entering UK waters, but also from a huge increase in the width of the Irish sea. Portavogie, a small fishing village on the Ards peninsula is in the advanced planning stages of a project which will see its harbour relocated to higher ground somewhere near Carrowdore.
In the unlikely event of a ‘No-Deal’ Brexit, maintaining a strong economy will be the number one priority. Currently the governor of the Bank of England is rumoured to be aligned with the head of the IMF and the CEO of Ulster Bank in favouring replacing the Pound with Bitcoin or possibly even some kind of ‘crypto-currency’.
One thing is clear; the Brexiteers have serious questions to answer. When I put some of the above points to a retired friend of mine, she questioned how any of them actually related to the issue of Brexit. She was left rather embarrassed when I responded sharply with, “OK Boomer!”
If you have questions on any of the complexities relating to Brexit that you’d like me to address please email me. I may consider starting a separate blog dedicated to the subject.
