UK needs economic strategy – instead we have Liz Truss | William Keegan

During the blessed holiday in Vaucluse I succeeded avoid Any news about these dangerously absurd elections for the leadership of the Conservatives, that is, in addition to one classic farm oversight.

Yes, news that Liz Truss stated that “the jury out” on Great Britain future connections with France has certainly caused dissonance with Keith McKinley who runs Murson winery in Segur. She told me of it with desperate airadding also that President Emmanuel Macron reacted with tolerance, which has become his lot in has the meaning of Anglo-French relations while the Brexiters rule over here.

However, the jury, of course, out on Farm. She condemned herself before she took over the leadership of the Conservatives tomorrow. As a horse racing person, I feel I must remind readers that dead confidence is not always win – bookmakers at Ascot offered 6-1 on Labor victory the day before the 1992 election in which John Major won. However, it seems that Rishi Sunak need divine intervention to change the odds now. Through wayIt is interesting that a week before the 1992 elections, a horse named Party politics won Grand National.

In my opinion, both candidates are seriously mistaken. on many things, but especially over continuing support Brexit, when it’s such an obvious disaster: among other things, it seriously erodes the country’s tax revenue that Truss and Sunak want cut furtherin Deal Track tomorrow!). It’s such a disaster that one and only Jacob Rees-Mogg wants to delay implementation of further border controls which are part of Brexit “deal”.

Useless complications and bureaucratic consequences of Brexit affects and annoys more as well as more people, including many Brexiters.

There are endless stories of customs delays and problems with renewal of passports. My own contribution is this: to be sure of renews her passport in time for our holiday, one of our daughters were told to go to Belfast. So we decided to keep it short. family visit to Belfast. Now though Northern Ireland is feeling the pressure of in cost of living crisis just like rest of UK it’s galore clear that, thanks to its constant membership of customs union and the single market is suffering less economically.

AT fact, with out of disrespect for a democratic unionist party and Truss, who want break international law and destroy the Northern Ireland protocol, I can report that I have the impression that most of in people of Belfast reasonable content with the fact is that this terrible Brexit government agreed and now they want to break.

One of my first responsibilities on return to London had to attend the funeral of old friend, Joe Carey, former Treasury Department official, who died at the age of 88.

I mention this because Joe’s career was an interesting example. of how the attitude of the Ministry of Finance to “Europe” has changed in in light of experience.

working on International Monetary Fund Matters in 1960s – the IMF saved us in 1967, long before more notorious salvation in 1976 – Joe and his Treasury colleagues knew everything about the basic economic problems. They were also well informed of argument that membership of The European Economic Community will improve our economic performance – which, indeed, turned out.

However, the Treasury was for long suspicious of what it considered to be the excessive “European” enthusiasm of the Foreign Office. i will call you back on visits to Brussels in early 1970s when Joe was in British representation office, how often he and his treasury colleagues were suspicious of initiatives coming from countries who became our European partners after we joined in 1973.

In the 1980s Joe was a member of the UK of court of auditors of European Community, in Luxembourg and he was amazing in excavation examples of egregious abuse – not to mention corruption use – of funds with which we of of course it helped.

However, Joe and his treasury colleagues knew on which the side British bread was buttered, not least after Margaret Thatcher advocated of single market. Right, one of many aspects of Brexit that puzzles us former EU partners how we can have left an organization that was largely formed by the British.

What brings us to memories of Harold Macmillan great remark: “Here we are, and the question is: where do we go from here?” Truss did not share its strategic economic plans with us because she probably doesn’t have them. And God help us is down crying Alexander Boris Johnson, who fired all reasonable members of Remainer and Rejoiner of his office that we left with this heap.
