Finally, David Davis has told leavers the truth: Brexit means compromise | The Guardian


Ministerial speeches on Brexit seem to be a bit like buses. We wait months for one to shed a bit more light on the UK’s negotiating stance, and then they all turn up at once. On Tuesday it was David Davis’s turn to visit a European city and set out the next steps on the “road to Brexit”.

I’m sure his Cabinet colleagues were delighted to hear about a lock-in at Chequers at the end of this week, set to last until they finally agree a position for the Brexit talks. A unified Cabinet is now more important than ever if the Brexit divisions, which the foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, tried to bridge last week, are to be overcome. Without it, debates in Westminster and beyond about the single market, the customs union, divergence, tariffs and non-tariff barriers will just go on and on, in ever-decreasing circles.

One thought on “Finally, David Davis has told leavers the truth: Brexit means compromise | The Guardian

  1. Yes, Brexit means compromise, but so does staying in the EU.

    By staying in the EU and with their strides to political union could well mean that the individual countries could eventually cease to exist and then there would be just be the United States of Europe.

    When this comes each individual countries Governments would be demoted to a virtually local government authority and then what would our current local authorities be.

    One currency, one (army, navy, airforce) in effect all rulings would be from Brussels.
