  • Theresa May.
    Article: Mar 2, 2018

    Commenting on Theresa May's Brexit speech at Mansion House, Vince Cable MP Leader of the Liberal Democrats, said:

    May's diminished authority is allowing Brexit extremists to neuter any chance she has at getting an acceptable deal for the UK.

    "With a listless government beholden to hard-line Tories the only way to protect our future is ensure a referendum on the final deal. Surely, If May believes in her strategy, she would happily take it to the country."

    Keeping calm and focused

    At moments of upheaval it is not unusual for almost everything to be drowned out by an overwhelming focus on whatever major event is taking place.

    So, for example, in the US, and around the world, the media can become obsessed with Donald Trump to the exclusion of everything else. Everything becomes filtered through the lens of the latest outrage, faux pas, or insult. Similarly, here in the UK our entire future is being squeezed through the bottleneck that is Brexit. The risk is that in the understandable desire to have our voices heard we can end up reduced to little more than shouting the same words as everyone else. One side shouting Brexit good, Brexit good, and the other shouting Brexit bad, Brexit bad. Which was how we got into this mess in the first place.
