One Brexit for the City of London; another for the rest

Posted on

The news that the City of London is, apparently, to continue to enjoy free movement  of people after Brexit when the rest of the country will not raises a range of thoughts and questions.

First, and glaringly obviously, how does David Davis know? He seems remarkably ill-informed on almost everything else to do with Brexit.

Second, why? Why this privilege for finance alone? Is he trying to confirm it has a rule apart? And why them? And please do not say it's tax revenue.

Third, is he trying to confirm that this is, indeed, a country where it is only money that really counts ? If so he could not do it better.

Let me be honest; I very much doubt that this is true. But if it is then it's another clear message that post-Brexit Britain will be the deeply divided country the government has always aspired to create.
