It was a week of Brexit big things:
- Nissan announcing that new models would not be manufactured in Sunderland after all.
- Theresa May turning up in Northern Ireland and Brussels to tell people that she had a problem, but no solutions.
- The Labour party setting out proposals which would see the UK as an equal partner with the EU in a “mini customs unions and single market”. But without the stuff the Jeremy doesn’t like.
Yet it is the little things in the great scheme of things that people going about their daily lives generally care about. For the most part, few of us bother with politics. Politics are something that happens somewhere else as we just get on with organising the kids for school, driving to the job, doing the shopping, getting home, cooking dinner, falling asleep in front of the television. Life is just everyday ordinariness.
