Boris: May’s Deal Does Not Deliver Brexit, ‘We Simply Become Non-Voting Members’ of EU

Posted by M. C. on March 18, 2019

Traitor

May will put off Brexit as long as possible. Life is easy (and likely profitable) when Brussels tells you how to run your country.

They may as well have Prince Charles running the Brexit show.

This looks like one of those “we won’t know what’s in the bill until we pass it” deals.

Backbench heavyweight Boris Johnson has all but confirmed he will vote against Theresa May’s proposed Withdrawal Agreement again if she puts it to MPs for a third time — with ministers signalling she may abandon “Meaningful Vote 3” if it looks certain she cannot win it.

Writing in the Telegraph newspaper, the Brexiteer and perennial leadership contender said he had asked his constituency association if he should back Mrs May’s deal — which he has previously complained would reduce Britain to the status of an EU “colony” or “vassal state” — in order to make sure Brexit gets over the line in some form, rather than risk a Remain Parliament delaying it at length or cancelling it altogether.

He reported that local members were in “near unanimity” in agreeing that he should not compromise, however, because they understand that “if Parliament agrees this deal, we do not, in fact, properly leave the EU on March 29th.”

“We simply become non-voting members… we do not then take back control of our laws. We do not take back control of our trade policy. Even our immigration policy will be in flux,” he explained.

“Every single important issue is still up for negotiation; and whether by accident or design, the UK will enter the second phase of the talks – if this deal goes through – in a position of almost unbearable weakness.

“We will have handed over huge sums of taxpayers’ money (far more than was necessary) for nothing in return.”

It is true that Mrs May’s deal does not settle a new relationship with the EU, but merely purchases a “transition” period in which Britain would for all practical purposes remain a full member of the bloc, minus its voting rights — with the contentious “backstop” to come into force at the end of it if an alternative cannot be agreed, and the British government powerless to end it unilaterally…

WHAT A BREXS*ITSHOW Theresa May’s Brexit deal crushed by MPs AGAIN meaning we’re no nearer to quitting EU after 993 days

Posted by M. C. on March 13, 2019

Chaos has been the natural state of the UK for a long while.

The last thing May wants is Brexit. What May is selling is a Brexit plan that effectively keeps the UK in the hands of Brussels with the help of EU loving Angela Merkel.

Fake Brexit. This is such a mess, I think the UK will end up worse than when they started.

Why would any population clamor to be ruled by a far off bunch of banksters, thieves and bureaucrats?

Keep the banksters, thieves and bureaucrats domestic like we do in the US.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/brexit/8615679/brexit-deal-vote-latest-theresa-may-fails-majority/

BRITAIN was last night plunged into chaos once again as MPs voted to kill off Theresa May’s Brexit deal by 391 votes to 242.

Now 993 days after the referendum, and with just 17 days before Brexit, Brits are still in the dark about when or if we will ever leave the EU.

Furious MPs blasted the uncertainty – saying the “wretched soap opera of Brexit continues” as the country heads “back to square one”.

And Cabinet ministers were summoned for a crisis meeting at No10 to work out how to move forward.

Parliament has repeatedly voted against Mrs May’s strategy for leaving the EU on March 29 – last night the Commons laughed and cheered after the the fresh chaos was confirmed.

But without a clear alternative on the table, the latest defeat opens the door to a range of wildly different outcomes – from a cliff-edge No Deal to a second referendum which could cancel Brexit entirely.

Tonight MPs will vote on whether Britain should quit the EU without a deal in 17 days’ time.

But they are expected to oppose the idea – and will instead back a delay to Brexit in a further vote likely to take place on Thursday…

Be seeing you

Delingpole: Bombshell Claim — May’s Secret Brexit Betrayal Pact with Merkel

Posted by M. C. on March 7, 2019

If true, remember you read it here. If false…you saw what, where?

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/03/06/claim-mays-secret-brexit-betrayal-pact-with-merkel/

by James Delingpole

British Prime Minister Theresa May has no intention of delivering meaningful Brexit; her June 2018 Withdrawal Agreement was drafted secretly in collusion with German Chancellor Angela Merkel with a view to keeping as many European Union (EU) laws and institutions as possible; May’s and Merkel’s ultimate game plan is for Britain to re-join the EU in full some time after the next general election…

These are the allegations of an extraordinary memo currently being circulated feverishly on social media.

To me, it smacks of a conspiracy theory to rank with those stories about the clandestine Establishment plot to murder Princess Diana.

But the fact that people seem ready to believe it speaks volumes about the state of distrust between May’s Remainer political establishment and the Brexit voting electorate. May and her Civil Servants have handled Brexit so very, very badly that for some Brexiteers the only plausible explanation is not cock-up but outright treachery.

The memo was originally published, briefly, at the website of the Eurosceptic Bruges Group. Then quickly taken down.

Now AltNews Media has re-published it here with a disclaimer that it cannot vouch for the memo’s accuracy.

Angela Merkel rejects UK Brexit proposal

Posted by M. C. on December 10, 2018

Of course Angela rejects the Brexit deal. Germany has wanted to be, and is now, the defacto ruler of Europe.

It just happened in a way that wasn’t expected. She doesn’t the UK to screw things up.

Brussels has it’s hands full keeping Belgium together.

https://www.dw.com/en/angela-merkel-rejects-uk-brexit-proposal/a-45627800

Angela Merkel has said the UK cannot pick and choose which parts of the single market it wants to keep after Brexit. The chancellor insisted that Germany would stand up against any attempts to hollow out global trade.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday dismissed hopes in Westminster that after Brexit the UK could continue have access to the EU single market for goods only.

Merkel nevertheless remained confident that the UK and EU would manage to reach a deal by October.

What’s Merkel stance on Brexit?

Addressing business leaders at a Federation of German Industries (BDI) conference in Berlin, the German chancellor said:

  • The UK could not remain a part of the single market for goods, but not for capital or services, as UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit plan suggests.
  • Based on the UK’s vision of a future relationship with the EU, it would likely be based on a “very, very intensive free trade area.”
  • Any future deal should be as detailed as possible, otherwise the Brexit transition period until the end of 2020 would be too short a time frame to draw up a comprehensive agreement.
  • Europe’s economies are suffering on the back of Brexit uncertainty. “Businesses need clarity,” which was why the EU has some its “hardest days” ahead.

Is Tony Blair a Traitor to Britain to Help Politicians in EU? | Armstrong Economics

Posted by M. C. on October 18, 2018

https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/international-news/britain/is-tony-blair-a-traitor-to-britain-to-help-politicians-in-eu/

by Martin Armstrong

ANSWER: Yes.  Tony Blair is out there pitching for another Brexit referendum as Prime Minister Theresa May, who also did not want to exit the EU, will be unable to secure a parliamentary majority and this seems to be an intentional plot to overturn BREXIT. Even the propaganda they use with regard to trade is misrepresenting the entire scheme. Britain is FAR BETTER off under BREXIT than remaining within the EU. Any trade deal is subject to the veto of any one of 28 member states. Britain CANNOT reach an independent trade deal for its own people for the French have always vetoed Britain. Let’s face the facts. Britain loses EVERY major case in the European court. This is all about protecting governments – not about what is best for the people. Britain will collapse with the EU if it does not break the chains which bind it.

Delingpole: Never Mind ‘Green GB Week’, Theresa. Where Is Our Brexit?

Posted by M. C. on October 16, 2018

The last thing Theresa May wants is to follow through on Brexit.  She wants the UK to take their orders from Brussels. It means even less thinking than she is already doing.

NHS doctors providing old people with cooking and dance lessons. We all know how smoothly the NHS is working and has a lot of time and money to spare.

Creating hate crime laws is just a way for politicians who don’t know how to solve anything look like they are doing something.

No wonder the UK is in the state it is in. The prognosis gets dimmer.

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2018/10/16/green-gb-week-will-not-deliver-brexit/

by James Delingpole

Here are some of the bold, exciting initiatives Theresa May’s government has proposed recently in order to stave off the threat of Jeremy Corbyn and his raging Communists:

  • NHS doctors to provide old people with free cookery lessons/dance classes to stop them feeling lonely.
  • Calling the elderly rude names to be made a “hate crime”.
  • “Austerity” to be ended by hiking the tax bills of the “rich”.

But my favourite so far has got to be the one launched yesterday by Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. It’s called Green GB Week.

To get an idea what an amazing job it has done to revitalise the Conservative base, here are some of the comments below a piece Clark published in the former shires Tory journal the Daily Telegraph, headlined “It’s time to reap the benefits of a low carbon economy”. Read the rest of this entry »

Euro Human Rights Judges ‘Will Block UK Plans to Waive Death Penalty Protection for ISIS Torturers’

Posted by M. C. on July 30, 2018

The comments tell the story.

https://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/07/30/european-human-rights-sis-death-penalty/

by Virginla Hale

A letter from the Home Office to the U.S. Attorney-General, which was leaked to the media last week, prompted outcry from self-proclaimed human rights campaigners who noted Home Secretary Sajid Javid said Britain would not demand a ‘no death penalty’ assurance in the cases of Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee El-Sheikh.

On Thursday, it was revealed that Britain has since been forced to pause intelligence-sharing with the U.S. regarding the two remaining members of the so-called Beatles — a terror cell accused of beheading Western hostages — after El-Sheikh’s mother launched legal action against the Home Office…

TRUMP’S BREXIT BLAST Donald Trump told Theresa May how to do Brexit ‘but she wrecked it’ – and says the US trade deal is off

Posted by M. C. on July 13, 2018

Wow! Trump plays hardball with everyone. The problem for the US establishment is…

It may be working in North Korea. It could end up being a win for Brexit. May, the CIA and their useful EU idiots in Brussels don’t want that!

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/6766531/trump-may-brexit-us-deal-off/

In an extraordinary intervention timed to coincide with his UK visit, Mr Trump said Theresa May ignored his advice by opting for a soft Brexit strategy.

And he warned her any attempts to maintain close ties with the EU would make a lucrative US trade deal very unlikely.

Mr Trump said: “If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal.”…

Boris is right about UK becoming a colony. Whether it is the EU that would be in charge is another question.

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson revealed the root of his dispute with Prime Minister Theresa May on the terms of Brexit, which led to his resignation.

Speaking shortly after his resignation from the UK government, former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson slammed the current approach to the Brexit negotiations with the EU, underlining that “we have postponed crucial decisions, including the preparations for no-deal Brexit”. He stressed that the succession process should be more dynamic and nimble.

“We are truly headed for the status of a colony — and many will struggle to see the economic or political advantage of that particular arrangement,” Johnson said in a resignation statement.

The former top British diplomat stressed that in the current situation the “Brexit dream was dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt”, explaining that the ability to diverge from the EU rules has been taken off the table… Read the rest of this entry »

Delingpole: Brexit Is Dead – Strangled by Theresa May and Her Cabal of Remainer Cronies

Posted by M. C. on July 9, 2018

The public voted in favor. So much for the joke that is today’s “Democracy”.

Another nail in the UK Janazah coffin.

https://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/07/09/how-remainers-killed-brexit/

by James Delingpole

Brexit is dead –  strangled at the weekend by Prime Minister Theresa May and her cabal of Remainer cronies.

It was a brilliant coup, masterfully conducted with a sadist’s attention to detail.

All the ministers in the Cabinet were hauled up to Chequers, the Prime Minister’s country residence, where their phones were confiscated, as though they were naughty children. Then the stubbornly pro-Brexit ones who were rightly disgusted by the shaming sell-out deal May had cobbled together with her virulently Remainer civil servants were given the same choice Rommel was in 1944: cyanide pill or slow career death.
