The EU doesn’t make it easy for us to like it
Needless and unjustified proposals on tax only feed the sort of antipathy that brought about Brexit
I’m studiously trying to avoid any comment on the Brexit shenanigans playing out this week on the other side of the Irish Sea. It’s not easy. From travelling back and forth on a regular basis over the last two years, I’ve been struck by how difficult it is for many Brexiteers to articulate their reasons for wanting to leave using any kind of concrete examples. They claim they wish to take back control, but when it comes to the specifics of the controls they want back, often they are at a loss.
