Brexit confidence grows

May’s plan for Britain

The backdrop to Theresa May’s Brexit speech tomorrow is almost as interesting as the speech itself promises to be. First, there’s the government’s very deliberate decision to make clear – via a Philip Hammond interview in the German press – that Britain will play hardball if it can’t secure a decent deal with the EU. Hammond made clear toWelt am Sonntag that if the UK can’t negotiate a reasonable new trading arrangement with the EU then it is prepared to slash tax and regulation to make its economy more competitive. This is a deliberate attempt to play on European worries about having some kind of Singapore West on its doorstep.

Hammond’s intervention is striking because he had been the senior Cabinet minister most wary about the economic consequences of Brexit. This interview showed he is no longer fighting a rear-guard action in government to try and keep the UK in the single market but is instead in ‘how to make Brexit work’ mode.

Then, there is Donald Trump and his talk of a trade deal with the UK and his prediction that other countries will follow the UK out of the EU. Now, the UK government, obviously, isn’t in control of this talk. There’s also no doubt it puts backs up in Brussels and other EU capitals, making them more defensive and more reluctant to compromise. But the talk of a US deal also shows that the UK has options outside the EU, that it doesn’t come as a supplicant to the exit negotiations. This is helpful to the UK’s position.

Finally, there’s the Barnier leak. The Guardian had a cracking story on Saturday about how the EU’s chief negotiator had told MEPs about how he wanted a ‘special’ deal to guarantee EU firms and countries access to the City of London’s financial markets. The leak was a reminder that there are huge risks for the EU in cutting itself off from the eurozone’s de-facto banking and financial capital. As James notes, Europe’s need for the City of London is why, ultimately, a deal may be done.

Combine this with the other developments that have strengthened the UK’s negotiating hand – the resilience of the UK economy, Trump and Francois Fillon’s attitudes to Russia, and the failure of Scottish independence to gain support post-Brexit – and May can be more confident of getting a good deal than she would have been on the day she became PM. But it should be remembered that leaving the single market and the customs union, which is where the UK government is heading, is something that May can deliver herself.

  1. Rather than be a curiosity/distraction. This Reverse Speaking phenomenon might be a very useful tool to employ not just in personal lives but assessing what the PM says above, any politician. It seems police are using it to solve crimes too. Interesting even to examine one’s own speech and see what comes out in Reverse. An App can be downloaded. When realising the less dense dimensions around us do not have linear time, but are timeless. It helps us to realise simultaneous meanings both in forward and reverse speech is possible. Just like Roger Morneau describing the typewriters in the law office typing themselves not only forwards. But when it got to the end of the line typing the next line backwards. He said the lawyer had done a Faustian deal.

    Please feel free to download the IPhone Reverse Speech app by typing in “ireversespeech” in the Iphone app store, the Android Virtual Recorder app in the Play Store, or use ANY other device that records and will play both forward and backward, to check my work if you like! Go to the video I used on Youtube, record the forward speech of the reversal you’d like to check

    Reverse Speech comes from the same place our dreams come from. It is natural to humans and was discovered by David Oates over thirty years ago. In his research, David found out that we actually learn to speak in reverse before we learn to speak forward. We start speaking in reverse at the age of about 4 months old. Here is a Youtube video from David’s Youtube channel showing reverse speech in children. There’s even one handicapped child who cannot speak forward, but can be heard in reverse telling her mother that she loves her: https://kauilapele.wordpress.com/2017/01/15/tiffany-fontenot-1-7-17-reverse-speech-analysis-of-worlds-worst-crisis-actors-or-sometimes-you-have-to-throw-it-in-reverse-to-get-the-truth/
    Our Reverse Speech is always true. It comes from what is programmed into our subconscious and also comes from higher self, and above. Because of this, it’s a very useful tool to be able to use on people as a lie detector.

    Our True Multidimensional Nature
    Our Universal and higher selves, our subconscious and unconscious minds are speaking to us all the time in synchronicities, telepathic phrases we hear in our heads, being energetically pulled to put our attention on something important… They speak to us when we are in altered states such as being under hypnosis, or in our dreams. They speak to us in symbols and metaphors, and many other ways that we are only just beginning to understand.

    One other way this is done is within the context of Reverse Speech. Before being born here, we may exist outside of time. If true, one would not be surprised to find that humans naturally speak forward and backward at the same time from different levels of consciousness in order to both communicate and provide guidance and/or information to ourselves and others in a beautiful display of our true multidimensional nature that reflects how we ACTUALLY exist unbeknownst to us before.
