Today the government commences Brexit negotiations.
There are four possible outcomes.
We can leave entirely.
Or we can leave the EU but stay in the Customs Union.
Alternatively we can leave the EU but stay in the Customs Union and the Single Market.
Or we can stay in the EU.
The only option that doesn’t harm the UK is staying in.
All the others cause harm. The only question is how much and how long we can defer the time until it hits.
And yet no one is saying it’s time to change our minds because an election victory secured by a tiny margin on the basis of lies, at best, can be ignored. Which is my definition of madness for today.
