Last week on Bloomberg, an online news site, I came across a small but mind-boggling report. It concerned Lord Frost, the unelected Conservative minister in charge of our post-Brexit affairs. Perhaps you may remember the jibes by Leavers about unelected officials dictating our future!
Lord Frost said he was recruiting an external adviser to seek out new opportunities for our post Brexit economy. He was addressing a committee of MPs and his exact words were ‘We have high hopes of outside input into this process.’
So here we are five years on from the Brexit referendum vote, the Boris Johnson Government is woefully and clearly struggling to find any benefits from leaving the biggest free trading area in the world.
