This is from the Daily Telegraph website 14 January 2021, by someone called Jonathan Saxty:
We Brexiteers are being blamed for the problems we warned about
In reality, fault lies squarely with the Government and poor planning
As problems mount for UK businesses, both in dealing with mainland Europe and regarding Northern Ireland, don’t be surprised if Brexit and Brexiteers get the blame for what is a failure of Government, as the possibility of reintegration via the backdoor looms. Many businesses are reporting difficulties adapting to the post- Brexit trading landscape, with the Federation of Small Businesses claiming many small firms have not had the time, money or clarity to prepare. German logistics group DB Schenker became the latest parcels operator to suspend cross-border delivery, following a similar move by DPD. How did the Government not anticipate…
At this point the Daily Telegraph thought we should start paying to read such crap.
After a bit of digging I found that Jonathan Saxty is an “entrepreneur” and Assistant Editor at a website called Brexit-Watch.org. According to its website,
Brexit-Watch.org is a new non-party / cross-party initiative launched by Global Britain to ensure the UK Government is fully aware of the opportunities and risks arising from the decisions it must take to complete Brexit by the end of 2020. Global Britain was founded 23 years ago to develop the business case for leaving the EU and once that objective was secured it has campaigned to see the result of the 2016 referendum was respected.
Oh and according to the Brexit-Watch.org website Jonathan Saxty “has a passion for improving peoples’ [sic*] lives”.
(*Why is it their obsession with British sovereignty never seems to stretch to mastering the English language?)
