Generation Brexit

From a 'Social Europe' to a 'Social Britain'?

It seems to me that we are in a crisis of globalisation, which many credit with being one of the root causes of Brexit, with the older generation and those that did not benefit from free movement and ever freer markets feeling disillusioned by a globalised economy that has by and large left them behind. In this context surely our generation and this cohort of Brexiters should push to prevent excessively free market ‘new’ trade agreements that will exacerbate rather than remove the negative effects of globalisation on social and economic inequality in the UK. 

In other words should we push for the adoption of a ‘Pillar of Social Rights’in the UK, mirroring that proposed by the EU, centred on the 3 priorities of:

  • Equal opportunities and access to the labour market, for all residents (including EU) 
  • Fair working conditions 
  • Adequate and sustainable social protection 


I would love to hear what you guys think about this.

I agree. Some of the more hard Brexit suggestions that we could become like Singapore are really worrying. I wouldn't want our social rights to be the price we pay for trade deals.
