Don’t mention Brexit…

It seems strange and slightly alarming that the issue that has had the whole of the UK; indeed, the whole world, in complete disarray and disbelief for the past four years, has suddenly disappeared from public view. The issue that caused such great resentment and distrust in politics has vanished from our television screens, and we, the public, are expected in the classic English manner to bury the past four years of emotions deep within us, for fear of being left behind or ridiculed for still caring about an issue that effectively tore the country apart. Brexit is still ongoing and is by no means over, but it has not been publicly discussed by central government since the 1st February 2020, and they are now attempting to distract and coerce us into forgetting Brexit, to allow them to create agreements without public scrutiny. Although Brexit marked a monumental shift in our country’s geopolitical orbit, “Brexit” as a word has now vanished, replaced by the far less catchy phrase “trade negotiations with the EU”. The Brexit that us, the public, were presented with, has ended. However, the Brexit that will shape the UK for generations to come, has only just begun.
