May’s Brexit: Twelve steps to recovery

Since the Brexit referendum in June 2016, the British population has been going through an uncertain period. In order to help protect the British economy and strengthen businesses following the Brexit talks, Prime Minister Theresa May has outlined a twelve point negotiation plan for the discussions with the EU. The focus of this insight is to look at the potential huge benefits to the British economy following the Brexit talks, with a look at how the talks could also be construed as detrimental and could lead to a divided Britain. The pressure that is on the British government in the coming years is significant as the decisions it makes will have rippling effects on the British economy for years to come.
Scottish Independence Party leader Nicola Sturgeon has called for a second Scottish referendum for independence as Scotland predominantly voted to remain in the EU, and the decision to leave has also resulted in renewed calls from parts of Ireland for re-unification. These are two examples of how the Brexit talks could lead to a more divided Britain as opposed to a strengthening of the Union. Each of the twelve points outlined in this article are in some cases contradictory to other points and suggest that the British government being unclear of its main objectives.
If Britain is to succeed in the changing post-Brexit world the British populace needs to be behind the government, but to do that full transparency between the government and the rest of the population must be evident. The Brexit talks attendants must be held accountable for their actions, both the positive and detrimental effects, as opposed to passing the blame onto the Houses of Parliament.
