BREXIT: LET'S NOT BE BUSY FOOLS, URGES COUNCILLOR

 DON'T let's be "busy fools"!

That was the message from Coun John Fenty during a North East Lincolnshire Council committee meeting debate on the potential impact of Brexit.

The authority is poised to set up not just its own internal "Brexit committee" but also a "community cohesion group" in the event of hostility towards the many  EU migrants who work in the Grimsby area.

But the proposed response reminded Coun Fenty (Con, Humberston & New Waltham) of the Millenium Bug fiasco when people were told computer systems would crash in the very  first second of the year 2000.

"People were in blind panic,"he recalled. "They were jumping through  hoops - all because of forecasts that were totally inaccurate.

"Instead of being busy fools, let's wait and see what happens."

It will probably not be until March or April that we get a clearer picture of the likely consequences of the EU Referendum's 'No'  vote.
