Thread Name: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
This is an example of one of the great falsehoods of Brexit. I must have heard that Remainers do not accept the result of the Referendum a thousand times. But by and large we do. We think it mistaken and if the opportunity did arise we would try to reverse it, but almost all of us accept we are leaving at some time in some fashion. And, as we are patriotic (whether you agree of not), we want to do that with the least damage to the country, its businesses and its citizens as we can. Where we differ most from Brexiteers is how that is achieved. To take the question of workers rights: Johnson's team is reported to be pleased it has removed those from the legally binding section into that part that is not. You get ministers arguing that they have no intention of reducing workers rights and indeed in the Queen's speech proclaimed they would improve them. That is irrelevant. They have made it possible that *some* future government could slash them. Whether they 'intend' to or not is mere sleight of hand.
