New Year Message from Theresa May – #Brexit
British Prime Minister, Theresa May has chosen careful words for her New Year message 2017. The careful language is chosen screams sitting on the fence, May discusses the #Brexit referendum and acknowledges that not everyone shares the same view! One obvious immediate criticism is the fact that a remainder is now heading up the British Government and influencing the outcomes before they have even started. In fairness, May has so far made it clear the UK will be leaving the European Union, however, has been unwilling to discuss what form of Brexit she believes in.
Bold words were once spoken by May “Brexit means Brexit” this gave hope to many leave voters! However, once those words had been digested and reflected upon, it became quite apparent that many in Government are unable or unwilling to define even roughly what Brexit is. May’s tweet wishes us all a peaceful, prosperous and happy New Year! Well for a kick-off mine will be a lot happier upon the triggering of article 50 and a quick transition out of the EU and any semblance of free movement.

Theresa May – New Year Message – Summary
May has once again hinted at Brexit, however, it remains undefined. Her acknowledgement of the challenges the United Kingdom has faced and the promotion of union should be warmly welcomed. However, what screams out in its absence is the lack of a clear statement on mass and uncontrolled migration. May had an opportunity to spell out 2017 is no longer an easy ride for illegal migration, draw the UK’s battle lines within international law and empower the people of the UK to put themselves and their nation first. Overall this speech will be forgotten, as another mixed May message, let’s hope our politicians improve upon this poor start to the year in quick time.
