Sincere Public Servants Gain Public Trust

In this piece for Huffington Post (19th July 2017), my point is that political and business leaders who want more flexibility to get the best Brexit deal have got to work even harder to build public confidence.
When I argue in favour of politicians and business leaders becoming more like public servants, what I’m saying is that: people are looking for leaders who show they understand the world through their eyes, can translate that understanding into practical solutions, and who deliver on their promises.
In these times that requires us to stop questioning whether Brexit is right, and instead to start focussing on how and why we got here. The more we do that, and come up with proposals to address the causes of Brexit, the more scope we will have to get the terms right for our exit from the EU.
