You can always approve a decree affirming that the Moon does not exist anymore. You can also pass a Law imposing that Great Britain is now on the Moon and not in Europe anymore. The Moon and Europe will remain there and the same, nonetheless. At least, until the World will fall apart.
Not surprisingly, Britain’s Brexit Secretary David Davis said in June 2017: “Half of my task is running a set of projects that make the NASA moon shot look quite simple” (as mentioned by the BBC here).
It is not coming as a surprise that Brexit is proving a disaster and Boris Johnson’s government is wandering in the dark. Especially for trade, Brexit is a catastrophe coming out from the rare atmosphere of that moon where Brexiteers and Mr Johnson decided to jump.
Brexiteers and the Moon will face reality sooner or later
Brexiteers and UK government do not realize that UK will always be too close to Europe to be cut-off from her. Yet, they are going on: walking on the Moon without an oxygen mask.
Eight weeks after Brexit implementation, Boris Johnson is still selling fake stories to divert from real problems. Where the “benefits” of Brexit will come from? From Mars?
Refusing to accept evidence, Mr Johnson is still claiming that imaginary benefits will come from Brexit. Reality is that any trade agreements between UK and EU will never be any better than remaining in – or rejoining – EU.
In fact, real UK is not on the Moon. UK is still in Europe despite Brexit, and post-Brexit trade conditions are just harming all sorts of trade between two parts of the same economic context.
Sooner or later, the truth will make its way as there is no future for those who believe on Flat Earth or Brexit. And there is not yet future for those who believe in cutting a 60-million people country from Earth to bring all onto the Moon. No matter what might you believe about Earth’s shape.
By the way, on writing Moon or moon, please consider reading a debate/decision here . It will taste close to a referendum…
