Now or sever
DONALD Trump reckons he’d make a better job of Brexit than Theresa May, and now it seems as if some European chiefs would rather be dealing with him, too.
We understand the frustration of those across the Continent who want to see a good deal struck — frustration at the PM’s failure to outline her position until nearly two years after the Referendum.
And, whilst they aren’t the bureaucrats who sit round tables in Brussels — or have boozy lunches with Jean-Claude Juncker — there are plenty of business leaders and sensible politicians in European capitals who are desperate for Britain to sign a comprehensive trade pact.
They understand that the future of the Continent’s economy is more important than the ideology of the true believers heading up the European Commission. The PM has — finally — started to talk to them with a concrete plan.
The silence after her meeting with Emmanuel Macron is concerning, but the noises from German business leaders and politicians from the Continent in recent weeks are more promising.
As the clock ticks, it’s time for them to tell Brussels that the theatrics and the anti-Britain briefings have to end. The Chequers fudge is not perfect. But Brussels would be mad to knock it back.
And if they do? Planning is already stepping up for a clean-break Brexit.The PM still believes no deal is better than a bad deal and insists she’s ready to walk away.
And that, as President Trump knows, is The Art Of The Deal…
AND so another new front opens up in the war against the motorist.
It’s outrageous that companies in some parts of the country could be charged if their employees drive to work.
Those firms, who have already paid business rates for having a car park, will just pass on the extra cost to workers. Another stealth tax, another pocket emptied.
We wouldn’t mind so much if we believed the money would be ploughed back into the roads, getting rid of potholes and fixing rocky road surfaces. Or if the trains turned up when they’re supposed to.
But we won’t hold our breath.
Bobby job weak
POLICE unions never fail to complain about overwork and stress on the job.
We can understand why. It’s not an easy job. Coppers have our respect.
But the news that one in 12 have second jobs suggests that not all of the wailing about long hours and working conditions are entirely legitimate.
The next time a victim is told there’s nobody available to investigate, they might wonder what their local bobbies are up to.
