Dr Fox hasn’t only been busy in America hammering away at a free trade agreement though. He’s also been making waves at home by calling out the biased BBC on their unfair and partisan coverage of economic news in the wake of Brexit. He’s now demanded a showdown with the organisation over their refusal to report strong economic data and dwell instead on a few small data points to continue spreading doom and gloom about national independence.
Meanwhile, Labour has fallen into renewed civil war over Brexit, despite a moment of unity following Jeremy Corbyn’s stronger than expected general election performance. Old critics like Chuka Umunna have re-emerged after Corbyn’s Eurosceptic streak snuck into public view this week. Shadow Trade Secretary Barry Gardiner came out in the Guardian to demand that Britain leave the single market and the European customs union, rightly pointing out that anything less would be a betrayal of our historic vote. It took them long enough, but it seems they might finally started understanding that the British people want control of their own borders and their own trade. A small but significant victory.
