It’s taken a few months to come into perspective but the true cost of Brexit is starting to rear its head and it’s not looking pretty.
The past few weeks have seen the UK hit with a multitude of problems which many are linking back to Brexit - HGV lorry driver shortages, food shortages, fears of petrol shortages, energy shortages. We could go on.
In desperate times like this, it is always important to remember and revisit what those who got us into this situation said about Brexit and all the positive things that would happen, that are actually yet to materialise.
In recent days a quote from Nigel Farage, which the former Brexit Party and UKIP leader said in March 2017 during a broadcast of his LBC Radio call-in show, has resurfaced.
During the show, one caller named Tony challenged Farage to apologise to the country and leave politics behind if it looked like Brexit wasn’t going to turn out as predicted. Farage remonstrated by listing a bunch of politicians who haven’t resigned over similar failures but added: “If Brexit is a disaster, I will go and live abroad.”
