A boost in post Brexit business has led to an increased demand in short term business office space to the level of £700 Million according to the Financial Times. This demand has been enhanced by foreign investors spurred on by the favourable climate created through a weakening of the Sterling. This is just the latest in a string of industries that have seen a positive outcome since Brexit.
Proactive moves by Australia show confidence in a post-Brexit Britain as the country sends officials to the UK to start work on a post-Brexit Trade deal. There was an insistence by the Australians that there would be few obstacles placed in the way to making sure a beneficial, quick and successful trade deal was agreed upon. This puts to bed the claims made by the Remain camp that post-Brexit would see the UK at the back of the line for trade deals with other countries.
It needs to be pointed out when evaluating post-Brexit trade deals that the 36 countries that have made deals with the EU did so under the proviso that the UK was a member of the single market. For France and Germany, to create obstacles to trade between the UK and the EU would work against their own interests. So a quick and mutually beneficial new trade deal between the EU and the UK would be in everyone’s best interests.
The complex battle ensuing in Britain between the Brexiteers and the Remainiacs has entered a new phase this week. Britain’s new Prime Minster has promised Brexit will mean Brexit. She has also called for an end to the liberal snobbery that has judged the democratic referendum result and the will of the people as wrong.
Major News outlets and previous front bench politicians in the Cameron administration have come out in faux fury at the prospect of “hard” Brexit. However, the question is, what is “hard” Brexit?
Simply put, “hard” Brexit entails taking back control of our fishing waters and making sure that the UK leaves the European Union free movement of people agreement and ensuring that the UK regains control of its own borders.
So in short, “hard” Brexit is exactly why the people voted to leave the European Union. Every core pledge that was presented to the people in the referendum that convinced them to vote to leave the European Union is the very thing that the liberal media elite, and the liberal political establishment, which lost the referendum, are now trying to stop. They are doing this through coining the phrase “hard” Brexit in an attempt to associate negative connotations.
So this becomes the first big test for Prime Minster May, after pledging to deliver real Brexit. Will she carry through or will she buckle under the amounting establishment pressure? This remains to be seen, but if previous Tory governments are anything to go by the fight to deliver Brexit is far, far from over.
