Government To Collapse?

I have been watching the twists and turns of the Tory party in government trying to cope with delivering Brexit when it isn’t possible to deliver Brexit without causing massive damage to our economy.

There are still people who will read this post and comment that “The People have spoken” and that’s the end of it.

However, nobody seems to have any idea about how Brexit would handle the Northern Ireland question, let alone all of the other consequences.

The Tory party is split, top to bottom, over the issue.

It begs the question, how are we going to negotiate a good deal with the EU when the governing party is disunited and not even in the majority at Westminster?

So, it boils down to a new question…. what’s the best way forward – a referendum on the terms of any deal or no deal, where there is an option to stay in the EU?

Or, should we hold a General Election where the different political parties are forced to reveal a policy on the EU, rather than trying to pretend they are all things to all people.

It will stop all the flip flopping of the Tories and Labour over the issue.

Remember the days when it was the Liberals that were usually accused of sitting on the fence?

Statistics Question and doubt everything

Despite possessing an “A” level in Economics and studying “Quantitative methods” on my way to becoming a Chartered Insurer, I still don’t fully understand statistics and sometimes have to listen to two friends who are economists and are prepared to patiently explain to me how something works, or how reliable a statistic actually is.
