Brexit Roundup , "Bright Future" ahead for Britain
George Osborne , Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer (finance minister) has vowed to make Britain a "super-competitive economy" with low tax rates . He intends to cut corporation tax from 20% to 15% over the next 5 years to encourage foreign investment .
We have got to get on a plane and sell Britain to the world
We’ve got to pick ourselves up and make the best of it and make the most of it.
I don’t sit here feeling sorry for myself, feeling somehow that it is all going to unravel. Quite the reverse
- George Osborne
This Positive sentiment was shared by fellow Conservative MP Boris Johnson who said a “bright future” awaits Britain away from Brussels and criticised other MPs for allowing a climate of Fear to envelope .
Young people are experiencing the last psychological tremors of Project Fear
perhaps the most thorough going government attempt to manipulate public opinion since the run up to the Iraq war.
It is time for this nonsense to end...
We cannot wait until mid September and a new PM, we need a clear statement, now, of some basic truths.
- Boris Johnson
However , those loyal to the European Union and Brussels refuse to concede defeat .
A legal Challenge seeking to prevent Britain from leaving the EU has been lodged by legal firm Mishcon de Reya on behalf of a group of unnamed clients
Conservative MEP , David Campbell Bannerman, has described the legal challenge as a “disgrace” and warned it could lead to "riots on the streets" .
This sort of attempt to subvert a clear democratic result is disgraceful. We saw from Tony Blair today and other interventions that there is now an attempt by Remain supporters to overturn this result.
I have seen before in Northern Ireland what happens when democracy is ignored. We will have riots on the streets if this result is blocked in some way and if this legal challenge is an attempt to allow Remain supporters to use Parliament to ignore the will of the people
- David Campbell Bannerman (Conservative MEP)
In Scotland , Ruth Davidson leader of the Scottish Conservative party has backed Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon's call for second scottish Independence referendum . Ruth Davidson has said she will advise the next Prime Minster not to block a re-run of the 2014 scottish Independence referendum despite adding that such a referendum would be “destabilising” .
Meanwhile in Northern Ireland , Sinn Fein which campaigned against both the Nice and Lisbon Treaties has appeared to have undergone a complete Metamorphosis and is now calling for a referendum in Northern Ireland so they can be re-united with the EU again .
Martin McGuinness calling for a border poll says
"All of us who believe in Europe and want to be part of Europe will be deeply dissapointed that English votes have effectivley dragged us out of Europe . I think that our case for a border poll is strengethend by this result"
While Gerry Adams says :
“There is now a democratic imperative for a border poll. The Irish government should support this.”
Finally , Nigel Farage , the man who led Britain out of the European Union has resigned as leader of UKIP .
Speaking in Westminster this morning he says .
I have decided to stand aside as Leader of UKIP.
The victory for the 'Leave' side in the referendum means that my political ambition has been achieved.
I came into this struggle from business because I wanted us to be a self-governing nation, not to become a career politician.
"UKIP is in a good position and will continue, with my full support to attract a significant vote.
Whilst we will now leave the European Union the terms of our withdrawal are unclear.
If there is too much backsliding by the Government and with the Labour Party detached from many of its voters then UKIP's best days may be yet to come.
