Britain’s Brexit opportunity will allow the United Kingdom to reimagine and reshape its “Soft Power” influence in ways not possible since joining the European Economic Community. Soft Power is the way the modern world defines who is a global power. Britain must build on its present position and enter the world stage as the leading Soft Power nation. By marrying Britain’s Hard and Soft Power we can be a reinvented world power, argues Joel Casement.
This week the UK will publish its tariffs schedule under a World Trade Organization Brexit. The row in Downing Street will be over how many zero tariff industries the UK creates under a WTO Brexit. This is an opportunity for the UK to control our terms of trade and independently secure our prosperous future, says Joel Casement.
According to the UK Parliament website: “The UK public elects Members of Parliament (MPs) to represent their interests and concerns in the House of Commons. MPs consider and can propose new laws as well as raising issues that matter to you in the House”. It is incredible we are threatened with another EU Referendum (this time coined as a People’s Vote), which would subvert the decision to Leave the EU in the vote on 23rd June 2016 – nearly 3 years ago – argues Joel Casement.
Adam Smith, Britain’s most influential Economist said: “On the road from the City of Skepticism, I had to pass through the Valley of Ambiguity.” This is our creed when we think of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit and immediately going onto World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules. The future is bright, but we need to take the correct path, argues Joel Casement.
Blockchain: the solution to the Irish border question?
The Irish border has plagued British Governments for decades. Today, it manifests itself as the movement of goods across the Irish border after Brexit. How do we protect British farmers and ensure they reap the benefits of Brexit? Farming is an important industry for the United Kingdom. We must ensure we use new, innovative solutions to solve old problems, says Get Britain Out's Joel Casement.
