We recently entered a new political era with an unelected Prime Minister and a British Trade Secretary claiming that British business owners have grown ‘too lazy, and too fat on our successes in previous generations’.
Liam Fox may not have the ability to inspire commercial confidence or the tact to operate in the public eye, but at least he has ensured that fat and lazy British bosses will no longer control vast amounts of our public services:
So, according to our political leaders, Britain is better off with foreign ownership of our public services. This will not be reversed as a result of Brexit, so we will all be paying in to overseas coffers no matter what we voted for.
In There There My Dear Harold Connor, the former Prime Minister, suffers the personal consequences of making trade agreements on an international level that benefit the few. The plot is controversial, suggesting that the G20 countries are exploiting a whole continent for potential financial gain. It may be a theme in the novel, but it could be true. Is too far-fetched?
