haven't had much brexit news over here lately. haven't looked for it either. a friend in scotland says it's turning into a sort of fire sale to corporations in efforts to privatize things. but i didn't pry for more info.

what's happening over there? trade deals taking shape yet?

Pretty much everything can be blamed on covid still at present; so once that's died down we can see where we are then.

I guess the *good* is that pretty much every country has been fucked by covid... and yeah there are murmerings of trade deals.  I guess loads is going on behind closed doors.

But otherwise there are fuel shortages due to panic buying and lack of hgv drivers, NHS waiting times are through the roof; there are protesters blocking major roads, taxes are going up,... its business as normal over here 😄

Quote

Johnson once regarded a bilateral free trade agreement with the US as a key Brexit win, highlighting the prospects for British exporters unfettered from the EU. But government insiders privately concede that they see little prospect of progress towards a one-to-one deal, as the Biden administration focuses on other priorities.

this depends on either ignoring evidence or not being made aware of it, with covid being the cover story for situations not being experienced prior to brexit kicking in - january 1st 2021 - long after the beginning of the pandemic. we didn’t have food and fuel shortages, rises prices, dramatic staff shortages during last year. we do now. anything remotely similar happening elsewhere is dramatically lower level - a subset of effects due to covid, without the extra layer missing due to changes at borders, ports due to leaving the EU. 

not surprising, any of it, but more dramatic to see it as it’s happening rather than suggested or pointed to prior to this year. and odder given determination to deny it or inability to research realities and present it easily to politicians and public in pretty dramatic levels of denial.

Nigel Farage driving to seven empty petrol stations to find fuel and then getting into a car crash is some next level British comedy. Actions, consequences, etc.
