‘Festival of Brexit’ is by its very nature divisive | Letters

I to find your editorial (29 March) at the “competition of Brexit” staggering. If we’re celebrating Brexit, the place does it put nearly all of other folks in Northern Eire and Scotland who voted in opposition to the industrial crisis that they’re now mired in? What precisely do they’ve to have fun? That is about interesting to the Tory heartlands and ignoring the remainder of the United Kingdom. The comparability with the Pageant of Britain is ludicrous, since Brexit has created huge divisions all over the United Kingdom, which losing huge quantities of taxpayers cash to have fun is not going to assuage, simplest exacerbate.

Since this executive treats each and every expenditure as a chance to corruptly receive advantages its allies, donors and pals, we will be able to be expecting that to be a outstanding a part of the Brexit celebrations. Renaming it the “Pageant for the tip of the UK” could be extra suitable.

“There’s no reason why to suppose that Pageant UK 2022 might be a party of Brexit”, says your print headline. However the truth stays that the competition was once inaugurated for simply that objective. Within the phrases of the competition director, Martin Inexperienced: “There is not any doubt that cash has been made to be had as a result of this nation is exiting the EU.” Therapeutic divided communities is a noble intention, however the group that I used to be as soon as a member of – the EU – has been taken clear of me. How precisely is a competition devoted only to UK ability going to heal that?
