EU governments have tentatively agreed on a $60 a barrel price cap on Russian seaborne oil, with an adjustment mechanism to keep the cap at 5% below the market price. This has still to be agreed by all the EU governments.
This just shows how isolated the UK has become since Brexit. We huff and puff, but where was our input. What is very obviously important to us, especially with the Cost of Living crisis, the sky rocketing energy prices here, yet we are helpless. The EU though has real influence and can force Russia’s Gand on this.
This UTube video from Professor David Spiegelhalter of Cambridge University, is easy to follow, very informative and topical.
Increasingly the evidence for the failure of Brexit is coming at us in numbers that quite frankly, the public and our media commentators, are failing to grasp. Some of this might be political spin, but it might just be ineptness in handling and understanding the numbers.
The numbers though, are important and watching this video helps, by showing how to communicate these numbers in a clear way. This will help us with our Rejoin the EU message.
Brexit has brought us to a world where everything is
“We used to do”
We are now Billy no mates. We used to be leaders in science. Now scientists are leaving. Students go elsewhere and the EU Horizon Research Programmes is looking likely to be closed for us. It’s more than Brexit. It’s because post Brexit our Tory Government now with its fourth PM on the trot, has gone out of its way to insult, ignore and obstruct our EU neighbours.
