  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.
