The UK

The UK is in a bit of a trouble. First of all, it is the very complicated divorce from the EU. In itself a mounting task. At the other hand, there are the requirements of the British public. 

These two processes are in direct opposition. 

First of all, I believe, that Ms. May is a good choice. I did support Mr. Johnson, but he has been adequately placed in the government, and is helping rather than obstructing the process. 

I did the election campaign for Mr. Cameron the last time, so the succes it has been is partly due to my ideas, in all humbleness. 

The challenges we face this time is much harder though, the process we face is very, very difficult, and we need to meet those challenges head on. 

If we look at the EU demands, what really strikes me, is that EU thinks it is in a good position to negotiate, but the opposite is really the case. 

The UK has all to win, and little to lose from the divorce. In fact Germany seems to be the loser of the divore more than the UK. The EU Eurocrats are living on a complete other part of the earth, with demands so outrageous, that it is simply impossible to even start the negotiations. 

There are many people that are dependent on the negotiations, and the EU is practically holding these people hostage. 

But negotiation should be pretty simple, since the EU is in such a bad negotiation position, it is, more or less, a matter of the UK sizing up the project and seeing through a process that will ensure most fairness to all that are dependent on the EU machinery. 

Better do it fast than slow, the outcome is pretty much given. 

Then we can go on with all the other problems that are still around. 

If we look at the other end of the equation; the electorate. Their demands have not been met either. And their demands are much harder to meet. In fact, this process, something that is under scrutiny in the election process is really difficult. 

The winning side of the Brexit campaign basically saw a complete dismantling of all EU citizen infrastructure as the result. 

Not giving them that, will require quite a strong argument. That is not something we need in the middle of a negotiation. 

We may need to shut down a sizeable part of the EU citizen migration and see where that leads us. 

This may seem ludicrous at the moment, but if we look at the Trump campaign, this was exactly what he campaigned on, and what he won on. And honestly, it was necessary in some parts of the US. 

The same is true for the UK. 

I know that this seems inhuman, but the effect of uncontrolled migrantion is often more inhuman, as we have seen with all the atrocities in Rotherham and other places. 

We should not accept the breakdown of the law and our democratic institutions just to be humane. In fact accepting what is happening to young girls in the UK is absolutely inhuman. 

So we need a firm but humane handling of these issues. This is what Ms. May will ultimately give us. 

She has the backbone, and she is a wonderful person, we just need to support her in the awful job that is in front of us. Because it will not disappear if we ignore it. It will only get worse. And we need to do something about it. Something effective. 

G-d bless Ms. May, and may she find a way in between all the dangers that lie ahead.
