UK - No Tories Defending Brexit

Arno Froese

After six years of English rightwing politicians and journalists pitting scorn at France, especially Macron, this was quite a U-turn. Brexit Conservatives have devoted a great deal of energy to attacking Macron and rubbishing France. 

France was perceived as the principal counter-force to Brexit but the mood in London in ruling political, financial, and opinion forming circles is that the steam is going out of the Brexit balloon. Brexit is now seen as a bore, replete with negatives for economic, scientific and civil society.

It is impossible to find a minister who will defend Brexit. 

There is a complete code of ‘omerta’ in business outfits like the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) or the British Cambers of Commerce (BCC) as well as the City of London, and big foreign owned companies on talking about the negative impact on business from Brexit. 

There was evidence [of] this in Prague where [former Prime Minister] Truss declared Macron to be a “friend” of her government and agreed that Paris and London would jointly take over the Sizewell C nuclear plant and step up cooperation in energy policy and combatting illegal crossings of the straits of Dover by undocumented refugees and immigrants.

Arno's Commentary

The UK has already paid dearly for Brexit. Open borders, freedom of movement, rights to employment, education, and healthcare are now limited for the UK. That has been made painfully aware among the Tories. (Wikipedia explains: “The Conservative Party (informally as the Tory Party) is the main right-wing political party in the United Kingdom. Their policies usually promote conservatism and in recent years libertarianism. They are the largest party in the House of Commons after the 2019 United Kingdom general election, with 365 out of a possible 650 seats.”)

We may ask, what is the UK’s future? Quite obviously, a degree of isolationism in the first place; and secondly, more dependence on the EU but without having a vote. 

We can use this political development as an illustration for the Church. We are extremely diverse when it comes to geography, language, culture, etc. Yet 1 Corinthians 12:12 declares: “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.” While the geopolitical developments in many parts of the world pique our interest, that must always stay and remain secondary to the real unity as stated in Scripture.

The world is uniting and will continue to unite, but such must only be viewed from prophetic perspectives; namely, the great imitation of the god of this world, mimicking the perfect unity of the Church in Christ Jesus our Lord.
