Tim Martin of JD Wetherspoon puts wretched traitor Theresa May straight on Brexit and business

By Tom Winnifrith, one of the 17.4 million | Wednesday 11 July 2018


 


Mrs Theresa May, the worst Prime Minister since the 1800s, understands nothing of business which might explain why she is happy to betray the 17.4 million and her party members by signing up to the worst Brexit deal imaginable. This will see her party obliterated at the next election – bring it on!  Tim Martin of JD Wetherspoon (JDW) does have real world experience and today opines:

"We are frequently asked about the effect of Brexit on the Company and the economy. The main advantage of Brexit is that the EU is a protectionist system that imposes high tariffs on non-EU imports such as wine, rice, coffee, oranges, children's shoes and clothes, and over 12,000 other products.

Leaving the EU allows the UK to adopt the approach of countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Switzerland and Australia by dismantling these tariff walls, which improves general living standards.

As the retiring Australian High Commissioner, Alexander Downer, has recently said:

You will do well if you open your markets and you embrace free trade; there was never a country that embraced free trade that was poor as a result.

In this connection, Wetherspoon has started to review its product range and has exchanged French champagne for sparkling wine from the UK and Australia, and German wheat beer for UK and American alternatives. The new products are now available, at reduced prices, in our pubs.

We plan further initiatives in this area in the coming months.

Huge progress has been made in leaving the EU: the referendum has taken place; the manifestos of the main parties, respecting the result, were endorsed in the general election; Article 50 was triggered and the sensible decision was taken to allow legal EU migrants to stay post-Brexit.

Unsurprisingly, the prime minister has run into difficulties by making the mistake of prioritising a "deal" with the unelected EU representatives, which they have little incentive to accommodate, rather than a sensible implementation of Brexit in areas under the control of parliament.

99% of the benefits of leaving the EU, including the avoidance of vast financial contributions, the elimination of tariffs and the reacquisition of fishing rights, need no agreement from any third party. The prime minister can avoid most current problems by prioritising these areas.”

Ends.

Quite right Tim. Mrs May…RESIGN!
