The early British parliamentary election – three years early !! – may be a significant sign that Brexit will neither be as swift or as surgical as promised.
The original Govt plan was Brexit done and dusted by Mar 2019, setting up a triumphant election campaign by May 2020.
Why rush now to get the election over first?
My hunch is it’s a defensive move in case Brexit involves messy compromise or needs a transition period afterwards.
It’s a thought I will develop in speeches for my clients over the next 6 weeks and beyond!
