Open letter to the British government: Keep calm and walk away from Brexit negotiations

In your efforts to ensure your country’s smooth transition away from EU membership, you have met more than one stumbling block. Between restoring British legal supremacy, settling your accounts with the EU, and establishing functioning borders, your attempts to define a future relationship with the EU have fallen short. It’s time to keep calm and walk away from Brexit negotiations.

Bad faith in Brussels: A warning to the UK’s Brexit negotiators

Rather than inspiring a constructive attitude to Brexit talks in Brussels, Theresa May’s Florence speech generated yet more calls for “clarity”, and that “sufficient progress” be made before talks could advance. This lacklustre EU position is not the result of sincere consideration of May’s proposals. Rather, it looks a lot more like a deliberate tactic to either prevent Brexit, or punish Britain.

Rather than trying to stop Brexit, elites should focus on making it a success

Many significant figures in business, politics, and the media openly campaigned for the UK to remain in the EU. Since June’s Brexit vote, elite pushback has persisted, if not accelerated, threatening the vote’s result. Rather than oppose the British people, these figures should focus on making the most of the opportunities presented by Brexit.
