Be bold and hold our nerve

Just as well Mrs May wasn’t in charge when Captain James Cook went off exploring.

He sailed into unchartered waters without qualms as to what lay ahead, unlike our PM - not one to miss an opportunity to try to frighten the electorate into submission - and is warning that a ‘no deal’ means a voyage into ‘uncharted territory’. 

Going bravely into the unknown is what helped make Great Britain the world power it is and, while ‘no deal’ is not the ideal outcome, we need to be bold and hold our nerve in the face of EU intransigence. 

They need us more than we need them and it is nonsense to think that if we walk away without a deal we will be up the creek without a paddle.
