About to start…
According to the Guardian, she’s going to say that our future is bright (not orange, Boris! Or maybe it will be…closer to the US after all):
“Our fundamental strengths are considerable; a legal system respected around the world; a keen openness to foreign investment; and enthusiasm for innovation; an ease of doing business; some of the best universities and researchers you can find anywhere; an exceptional national talent for creativity and an indomitable spirit.”
a legal system respected around the world = Our judges are generally considered to be less bent than those in most of the 3rd World; foreigners all speak English so like to sue in English rather than have to deal with litigating in the language of only one party to the proceedings and the US is stupidly expensive and has bonkers judges.
a keen openness to foreign investment = We’ll sell anyone anything. Would you like to spend some time with my sister?
enthusiasm for innovation= We’ll let you do anything!
an ease of doing business = We really mean it - anything!
some of the best universities and researchers you can find anywhere = For the moment. We’d quite like to stop them all buggering off elsewhere so please help us out.
an exceptional national talent for creativity and an indomitable spirit = Look, we’ve even managed to delude ourselves into thinking we’re still important!
