There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

The first map below shows the areas where we can currently work, travel, study, love, retire across. No visas. Includes non-EU members.

The second map shows our future free zone (assuming a Common Travel Agreement with Ireland).

Is this the Brexit Bonus Bonanza we were all promised, coffee?

Oops! here comes reality for you again, coffee: UK firms' growth at six-year-low amid Brexit and global trade fears
British businesses grew at their slowest rate in nearly six years last month because of fears of a no-deal Brexit and rising global trade barriers, according to a survey by the Confederation of British Industry.

The CBI’s measure of private sector growth dropped to -3 in February from zero in January.

This was its lowest reading since April 2013, fuelling concerns that Britain’s private sector has been shrinking in the run-up to the scheduled Brexit leave date of 29 March. Firms warned that the outlook for the next three months was even bleaker as the battle between the US and China over import tariffs harmed global trade.

Manufacturing, which according to official figures is in recession, was among the worst affected parts of the economy, although it was a sharp slowdown in the usually robust services sector that accelerated the drag on growth in the three months to February.

The CBI said its growth indicator showed that private sector businesses were under pressure from squeezed household earnings and the prospect of a no-deal Brexit, which deterred business investment.

“More and more companies are hitting the brakes on investment and day-to-day business decisions are becoming increasingly problematic,” the CBI’s chief economist, Rain Newton-Smith, said.

A survey last week showed manufacturers increased their stockpile of raw materials and finished goods by the most since records began in 1992 as they prepared for the possibility of border delays after Brexit.


Why is this happening, coffee? Any ideas?

Reality calling...reality calling...
Another day, another attempt by the government to woo Labour MPs backfires. Theresa May’s post-Brexit package on workers’ rights has received short shrift from trade union leaders.

“History will not be kind” to Labour MPs who voted for the government’s deal based on the “nods and winks from a lame duck prime minister”, warned the GMB’s Tim Roache. Meanwhile Frances O’Grady, the TUC general secretary, wrote off the proposals as “blatant window dressing”.

May is promising to enshrine existing EU employment rights into UK law after Brexit, and for Parliament to have a vote on adopting new EU rules in the future. The TUC has written this off as “flimsy procedural tweaks”. The concern is that these pledges won’t stop UK workers’ rights falling behind those of other countries or protect existing rights from being torn up by a right-wing government in the future.

Another problem is a chronic lack of trust towards a government that has previously been no friend of trade unions. If the prime minister were serious about protecting these rights, why not incorporate them into the EU withdrawal agreement in the first place, unions ask. As part of an international treaty, rights would be much harder to jettison at a later date.

https://www.peoples-vote.uk/march?e=7258668eab9c2d9ccad238fc304d70d7&utm_source=in&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=06_mar_2019&n=6

The prime minister’s package also promises a single new watchdog to protect vulnerable and agency workers. But there are concerns that if the new labour market body takes over the roles of the Low Pay Commission and ACAS then two of the historic gains of the Labour Movement – a statutory body dedicated to abolishing unfair low pay and a body working to secure effective trade union negotiations – will disappear.

It’s true that more must be done to prevent the exploitation of vulnerable workers. But this isn’t some new post-Brexit problem. Tackling it has nothing to do with whether the UK is in or out of the EU. But what has this government - or indeed David Cameron’s coalition government before it - done to crack down on unscrupulous employers?

Theresa May has fired another blank in her efforts to woo wavering Labour MPs to backing her deal. Like her attempted “bribe” to Labour constituencies earlier this week, with its piffling small amounts of money and clumsy delivery, this pledge on rights is likely to do more to discourage Labour MPs from backing the prime minister.

We now know that Brexit will leave workers worse off. It’s only fair to demand working people are involved - not ignored – in this decision. Any trade union member would expect to have the final vote on any deal their leaders negotiate. That’s why thousands of trade unionists will be joining our demonstration on March 23 – now is the time to put it to the people and demand our right to have a real say on our future.

Wrecking of car industry continues

Yesterday brought warnings from four of the UK’s biggest motor manufactures - BMW, Toyota, PSA and Rolls Royce - about the impact of Brexit on investment and production. It has also been speculated that Nissan are about to cut production at Sunderland. The succession of bad news from the motor industry shows the scale of the damage Brexit is already wreaking on our economy - and it is only just beginning.

Forcing Theresa May’s deal on the British people won’t bring clarity or closure for businesses or anyone else. All it guarantees is successive UK governments will be going back and forth to Brussels in endless wrangling about product standards, customs duties, workers’ rights, emission limits, rules of origin – the list is endless. Any deal on these terms will merely be the starting gun on arguments that will not stop for years or decades to come. If you’re a car maker - or any other sort of business - that’s not the sort of environment you want to be in.

Delays to cancer tests ‘inevitable’

Hospitals are likely to experience delays to cancer testing and treatment regardless of the result of next week's Brexit vote, reports the BBC. A spokesperson for the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) said it was now “inevitable” that the Brexit process will mean delays to treatment. Guidance sent to doctors recommends keeping workloads lighter in the run up to Brexit, to provide more “wriggle room” if medics suddenly can’t get hold of radioisotopes needed to diagnose and treat patients.

With bookings already going in doctors’ diaries, Theresa May’s tactics of running Brexit down to the wire is already being felt. The RCR says it understands the government sees the threat of no-deal Brexit as a negotiating tactic, but warned: “Putting patients' health at risk for the sake of getting a good Brexit deal is a difficult priority to balance.”

Scotland and Wales unite to oppose Brexit deal

An important message was delivered by Scotland and Walesyesterday when, in a first in 20 years of devolved politics, both the Scottish parliament and Welsh assembly backed the same Brexit motion. It re-emphasised opposition to the government’s deal, rejected no deal and urged an extension of the Article 50 deadline. Nicola Sturgeon, leading the debate in Holyrood, said Westminster had been given “long enough to enable a better path to be taken” and that the Scottish and Welsh governments had been “brought together by our dismay, bordering now on despair, at the UK government's handling of Brexit”.

Scottish and Welsh voices will be heard again in 17 days time, alongside those from every other region and nation of the country, at the Put It To The People march in London on March 23.
