Turns out that Brexit means Brexit. Who knew?

As the final, definitive break the the European Union approaches — the transition period that has shielded us from most of the implications of Brexit ends in 16 days — we’re starting to see headlines like “Furious British expats blast EU’s new post-Brexit travel rules which will ban them from spending more than three months at a time at their holiday home from January” in the Daily Mail.

As with so many of the unpleasant surprises that await us after 31st December, it’s really important to remember three things:

  1. This is not a punishment for Brexit.
  2. It’s not even a consequence of Brexit.
  3. It is Brexit.

What the UK is doing is leaving the European Union to become a third country that operates under the same rules as other third countries instead of as a member country.

This is, in other words, exactly what people voted for — or, at least what they say they voted for.

Turns out that Brexit means Brexit.

One response to “Turns out that Brexit means Brexit. Who knew?

  1. Ha ha! “Who knew?” I think a group know as “project fear” knew because we asked the questions “what has the EU to gain?” and “what is the plan?” and came up with answers of nothing and what plan.
