If only we had fielded a team of hard nosed negotiators at the very beginning we would not be up this smelly creek!
The day after the Brexit referendum I proposed via my MP a team lead by Lord Digby Jones, supported by like minded business negotiators and underpinned by Civil Servants for the detail. I believe that it reached no 10 (but its dustbin I suspect!)
Digby, a non political amimal, would have had the core wrapped up 18months ago.
But we are where we are.
No deal musnt be taken of the table today. It is our last negotiating point!
