Jacob Rees-Mogg: If Brexit goes ahead, tomorrow belongs to him.

If you voted for Brexit, or know someone who did, but can’t afford private healthcare or education, aren’t rich, don’t employ anybody (or at least nobody you want to sack more easily), and do care about the quality of the environment, then the question here is: Why did you do it?

The New European asserts that anybody in such a situation must have been fooled into voting for Brexit.

Can anybody put up a serious, reasonable argument against it?

A Brexit Britain, struggling on its own in a world economy already tied up in many existing trade deals among the many EU-like trading blocs that have come into existence in emulation of the EU itself, would be forced to become a low-tax, low-regulation economy to attract inward investment. So our question becomes: who in the UK would benefit from a low-tax, low-regulation economy?

A low-tax economy therefore would not, because it could not, benefit those who rely on what taxes pay for. It would instead benefit people

  • who do not use the NHS because they have private medical insurance,
  • who do not need a state education system because they educate their children privately,
  • who will never need welfare because they are rich,
  • who object to not being able to sack their employees easily,
  • who do not care if city air quality is bad because they have houses in the country,
  • who do not care if our beaches are dirty because they can take their holidays in exotic locations abroad.

People like Jacob Rees-Mogg, for example.
