Is 11 months to resolve our departure from EU in a coherent way, given this example?


Last Thursday in the House of Commons, our Hove MP asked a question which is illustrated here and the answer was one that clearly failed to define what “near term” means as well as raising serious concerns about our Governments claim that by the end of December 2020 it will have resolved the issues with our departure from the EU covering a slightly wider range of issues than the price structure of one rail line between Brighton and Victoria. It may well be that the resources needed to organise our departure will slow down the rail structure. However given that the Gibb Review published here on 22nd June 2017 is now approaching its 32 month anniversary and yet the Government which of course involves more Ministers than Chris Heaton-Harris and his boss Grant Shapps has a much more complicated set of changes to make in our EU Departure than simply sorting out a rail pricing arrangement on one rail line. Grant and Chris were both appointed to the Department in July last year, Grant was replacing Chris Grayling and they both have a colleague Nusrat Ghani who has been responsible for a number of themes for the department since she joined it just over two years ago. The reason for mentioning Nusrat is that she is an MP close to the Brighton to Victoria rail line so she would be able to understand how important this is to local people, some of whom are her constituents and who travel to Haywards Heath from that area!
