The former Chair of Vote Leave says that Britain has wasted a good opportunityby John Mills / March 26, 2018 / Leave a comment
Many Prospect readers no doubt voted “Remain” in the June 2016 European Union referendum. How do those of us who voted “Leave” now feel about how the Brexit negotiations are going?
At least in my case, I voted “Leave” on balance. While recognising that there were advantages to the UK from continuing EU membership I thought they were outweighed by the cost, lack of control of our laws and borders, our involvement in the Common Agricultural and Common Fisheries Policies, the centralising trajectory of the EU, its lack of democracy and the constraints on whom we could trade with outside the EU.
