Elsewhere, Tony Blair called for a second referendum, John McDonnell said breakfast instead of Brexit three times in one speech, Mark Carney got the backing of the PM and Apple increased the cost of Macbooks.
The government began to crack under pressure to reveal exactly what was promised, with Greg Clark firstly telling us that there was no cheque book involved in the assurances. Clark later had a rough time with Andrew Marr, further revealing that a promise had been made of no tariff increases for the automotive industry. The signals then, point towards a sector-by-sector approach to negotiations. Rowena Mason writes in the Guardian of Nick Clegg's assertion that this approach could lead to a big bill for the taxpayer. Wolfgang Munchau says in the FT that the Nissan decision is a clear sign of an interim period in the Brexit process, showing us the path forward.
A few interesting articles about the pound, not from last week, but relevant in the current debate over whether the devaluation is good or bad. George Soros penned a piece in the Guardian before the referendum correctly predicting that the pound would fall, and argued that we would all be worse off for it. Bernard Connolly, the economist who resisted the creation of the Euro whilst working at the European Commission, wrote a rebuttal of Soros' piece for MoneyWeek on the 22nd June arguing that while the pound will fall, it would not be a bad thing. More recently, the Bruegel group produced an article for CapX looking at the various perspectives on the issue. All worth a read.
Donald Tusk implied in a speech recently that if we reach the end of the A50 negotiations and are not happy, we could end the process there and essentially stop Brexit. The legalities of this are very unclear, as Jolyon Maugham spells out over on his blog.
Finally, Brexiteer Sam Hooper has a brilliant rant on his blog. Arguing that whilst he does not regret his decision, the politicians and poltical system of this generation are far from suited to make the best of the Brexit.
