A typically negative BBC news story about Brexit which appeared on the BBC News website today, the article was an interview given by Simon Fraser who was employed by the foreign office until 2015. He made claims that the Brexit negations hadn’t started particularly well.
First point is the BBC doesn’t disclose that Mr Fraser campaigned for the remain campaign, also since leaving his post in 2015 Mr Fraser has been working as a consultant advising business on Brexit. It does make me wonder whether this a personal opinion as I can’t see very many of his ex-colleagues wanting to brief him on the current state of negations
Especially when you have articles like this which suggests more progress is being made than what’s being reported by media outlets such as the BBC: https://capx.co/dont-believe-the-bad-news-about-brexit/
