Democracy17.4 is opposed to any further transition period beyond March 2019. The UK has been in transition since 23 June 2016. Any further extension is both unnecessary and damaging to the nation’s economy. If allowed to stand, this wholly inappropriate concept will put the brakes on business investment plans; indeed, so fractious is the proposition, the government is in danger of losing the goodwill of the City.
Brexiteers view transition as death to Brexit by a thousand cuts by deliberately prolonging the period of uncertainty. As Jacob Rees-Mogg has observed, transition threatens to reduce the U.K. to the status of a vassal state. As ever, the devil will be in the detail, and Democracy17.4 has zero confidence in the government’s approach to the so-called “negotiations”. We need to leave now, no ifs, no buts, just Leave.
