Authority is jumping gun

A letter sent from NHS Business Services Authority states that the UK is leaving the European Union on October 31.

11 November 2019

This statement is totally unqualified anywhere in the letter. I have written to the chief executive in strong terms saying that this is not, as yet, correct, but is just an aspiration of the Prime Minister – asking why such wording has been used, and without qualification.

A letter from the UK Ambassador mentions “the Prime Minister is committed to leaving the EU on October 31”.

I really do think we should congratulate him on such a personal sacrifice and commitment on behalf of the country, and I would gladly chip in to a fund to give him a deal, so he can get as far away as possible from his hated Europe.
