Treachery! Our man in Brussels has quit! and did you see what he had the temerity to say about us and our marvellous free trade plans as he stuck the knife in, by way of a resignation letter?
“I hope you will continue to challenge ill-founded arguments and muddled thinking and that you will never be afraid to speak the truth to those in power.I hope that you will support each other in those difficult moments where you have to deliver messages that are disagreeable to those who need to hear them”.
Muddled thinking – who can he mean? And then he said
“Contrary to the beliefs of some, free trade does not just happen when it is not thwarted by authorities: increasing market access to other markets and consumer choice in our own, depends on the deals, multilateral, plurilateral and bilateral that we strike, and the terms that we agree”.
Is he suggesting its not as simple as we promised? Bloody traitor, thats what I say…
