Should we be out by October or December at the latest,it's not unreasonable to suppose that the new PM could call an early election by the spring of 2020, were the economy begin to recover it's optimism after the demise of project fear
Project fear became project fact some time ago.
I would admire your optimism if it was based more on reality and less on those bloody unicorns suddenly materialising.
Not to mention on the wisdom and sensible actions of Bojo.
No,Sd, there are no 'unicorns', it's a plausible scenario,project 'fear' became reality before the referendum, just as it did in the Scottish independence debate, it's just that under leaving the E.U, that project' is going to go to the wire.
That 'project' is a reality, what it proclaims is just scareware, economically,the market changes in car production in this country for instance, is simply a rationalisation of the market by manufacturers, because they know that traditional vehicle internal combustion engines are not going to cut the mustard in the future where the environmental impact is a proven negative.
But that is where new opportunities present themselves & here in the U.K we can accelerate the transition to alternative transport policies besides just forging ahead in the race for EV production.
The new P.M should begin a blame campaign against the Labour Party policy for remaining in europe through it's campaign of sabotage in parliament, which, by acting against it's own manifesto, as well as against the referendum result, is actively anti-democratic & could place a huge dent in Labour's election prospects.
As for BoJo, for all of the rancour against him,within the Tory Party, the portrayal of him in the media has had absolutely no effect on his chances of securing a position as the next P.M up till now.
I personally think that Labour have shot themselves in the foot-nay-the head, politically, with their remain agenda in parliament.
It would have been more honest to have accepted the referendum,but simply promised to hold a new referendum(if elected)after the next election,if the Tories should make any deal with the E.U(can't see the E.U re-opening the agreed deal) that excluded the safeguards necessary for standards, the N.H.S etc.
