Indeed, there’s a whole set of paradoxes.
Those who wanted to “take back control” will soon realise that the Government’s (and Civil Service) Deal makers will be the ones who agree the UK’s immigration policy and that will inevitably be compromised with the need to make a deal. Is that what the Leavers voted for?
And I wonder how many are like my ex-neighbours who in 2016 explained to me that they were voting Leave as “there are too many darkies at the John Radcliffe “.
I wonder how they will feel as the UK makes more provision for fastracked visas from India?
But fundamentally… the Government’s own reports and those of independent analysts all said that the U.K. would be financially poorer: a lower GDP than we could have had.
That to me doesn’t mean that at best the poor will still be just as poor… it means they will be poorer.
For the rich in the UK… it won’t make a scrap of difference.
