What should the Brits do? Here’s my Bloomberg radio interview. The EU does not want to make Brexit easy for the UK, because the EU fears that the Danes and Dutch will scamper away next, following the British example. To dissuade the Danes and Dutch, the EU would like to extract from Britain, if not a pound of flesh, at least a few more pounds sterling of pain. How should the Brits respond to sluggish EU bureaucrats? My advice comes in two steps: First, buy some furniture polish and shine up a big round, royal oak table in Mayfair. Second, invite the Aussies, Indians, South Koreans, Americans, and Canadians to talk free trade. At this point, the Europeans will grow antsy and eager to
make Brexit a smoother path for Britain.
By the way, Tory leader Theresa May looked “ready for prime time” in her first televised statement as incoming Prime Minister.
