The Advantages of the UK Leaving the EU on 1st January 2021 (Updated)

I posted this piece last year but feel it’s my ‘moral’ duty to update it now we’ve been out of the EU for a year.

Like many, I was willing to give Brexit a chance. To see if the benefits promised might actually be true. I wasn’t holding out much hope of course — the economics and figures simply didn’t add up — but as a good-natured chap, I gave it a chance. Why not? Even the stupidest people are occasionally right.
