Britain will be out of EU by December 2018 says Brexit Secretary as life goes on in the digital economy

The UK will leave the UK by December 2018, the newly appointed Brexit Secretary David Davis has announced. Euro sceptic and leave campaigner Davis will lead negotiations with EU leaders.

Despite fears that when a remain campaigner became Prime Minister this week the leave process would be stalled, Theresa May has stuck to her words: "BREXIT means BREXIT"!

The straight talking newest female leader has confounded her critics by making decisive cabinet changes,including the surprise appointment of the leave campaign leader Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary.

Mrs May has now set up a department outside of the Foreign Office to specifically deal with the complex negotiations and process of leaving the European Union, which is expected to take two to three years. Other commentators claim that it could take up to six years to unravel the multi million word treaties and trade deals that have built up over the last 40 years.

This would give ample time for current EU migrants to establish residency in this country should they wish to do so. One thing is for sure, there will be no mass deportation of EU citizens already living in the UK. In fact, Brexit critics argue that there will be no significant reduction in immigration to the UK from Europe and some predict it will increase.

NHS hospitals are still recruiting non-EU nurses - with IELTS 7.00 and initial NMC registration - from the Philippines and other countries to fill job vacancies in the UK.

Adapt to survive
In the meantime, life goes on for the average person and nothing will change dramatically on a day-to-day basis. The stock market has recovered from early falls, base rates have remained at half a percent and the weak pound is having positive benefits - increased tourism and exports - as well as some negative effects.

The UK has always been an innovative and industrious nation, and has survived bigger issues than leaving the EU. We will survive and adapt to the changes ahead and you too can live the life you want regardless of who is running the economy.

The overall trend towards a knowledge-based, digital economy has not changed. The future is here and we are all going to have to learn new skills in order to adapt to the new technological age.

Don't take my word for it, just look around and see for yourself how many manual and skilled technical jobs can now be done by computers. Even hands-on jobs such as care and nursing can be done by a new wave of robots under development in Japan right now. This is not science fiction and if you really want to be scared the hell out of, watch the video Humans Need Not Apply.

In nature, only those species which were flexible and adaptable survived catastrophic changes, such as the ice age or meteors crashing down on earth. Think of the dinosaurs, which once ruled the planet.

Humans are, of course, the most adaptable of all animals. As the late Jim Rohn said, we can change our direction and lifestyle in an instance, unlike animals which rely on instinct. 

One way to become more adaptable is to keep learning. It is no longer enough to go through life with a high school diploma or degree.

Fortunately, the internet has opened up a whole new world of learning. We no longer need to go back to school or university to learn new skills. At the click of a mouse, you can now find everything from a short instructional video to a full degree course online.

  1. Hello,
    I think Mrs May has eventually set up a strategic high profile plan to deal with the Brexit leader by appointing him as foreign secretary to help renegotiate the trade relationship between Britain and the European Union. And I quite believe if he fails to deliver his job properly then this would be the end of his political career. Don't mess up with Mrs Theresa May hence you're Fired!!!
