The Labour and Conservative parties are trying to get voters to forget the Brexit issue and pretend it has no impact at all on local issues so you should continue electing their local council candidates.
But anyone who gives it even a moment's thought, realises that when central government doesn't have full control of its borders, laws and money then local government suffers as a result.
If central government is told what VAT rates to set and has to pay vast sums every year to the EU coffers via indirect taxes and Common External tariff rates, that also drive up prices for consumers as well as giving billions a year to already rich countries via the foreign aid budget, then there is always going to be less money for our local services.
When borders are open and we have no control over the numbers of people coming in, how can we know how few or how many people will choose to come into the country and how do we know how many schools, hospitals, power stations, roads, shops and police officers we need?
And the truth is, with an open border policy we don't know how many people will be coming and we therefore can't plan for the years and decades ahead.
And further, if we don't fully control our own laws and money as well, then what hope do we have of getting on top of such issues?
