What is this? Doesn’t like the language of ‘business’… April 4, 2017

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

In the eight page pull out section in the SBP this weekend about Brexit there’s a piece by Stephen Kinsella that frames the publication (and accompanying it a photograph of a border crossing in 1992. It is not pretty). I won’t go into that – some good points, some bad, and a conclusion that should concern any one in Britain.

Despite the narrative about being a rich global economy, the reality is that Brexit means a poorer Britain.

But there’s another quote that amused me slightly. He writes:

Everyone is using words like ‘creative’ and ‘flexible’ to describe how they regoing to approach the issue of border policing. I am not reassured.

That’s odd. Those, surely are very words we hear continually in relation to enterprise and entrepreneurs. Surely Kinsella isn’t saying that in real-world cases as distinct from rhetoric words like ‘creative’ and ‘flexible’ are just jargon? Surely not!


1. GW - April 4, 2017

Lets all just lean in to this in a team player kind of way and less of the doom and gloom.

In fact think there is scope for a lot of ‘creative ambiguity’ about the North – and its relationship with the entity currently extruding itself from the EU leaving a good bit sticking to the sides – which could soften the blow there.

The reason that’s unlikely to even trundle up the runway comes in three letters: DUP.
