Lack Of Unambiguous commitment to departing the EU Madhouse frustrating Labour Leave Campaign

Ed Rennie, Labour Leave LabourLeave_150

As you can imagine at Labour Leave HQ to say we are frustrated with the lack of unambiguous commitment to departing the EU from the current leadership of our party would be an understatement. This is without mentioning the rather ludicrous statements from some MPs such as Chuka Umunna, Heidi Alexander, Chris Bryant and oh Owen Smith (remember him?) who seem apparently oblivious that formally leaving the EU but retaining membership of the Single Market and Customs Union is quite patently the worst of both worlds.

BrexitCentral Daily Briefing

Deputy Editor, BrexitCentral, @darrengrimes_

There’s a three-pronged Cabinet attack on Brexit in the papers this morning. Theresa May and David Davis have given punchy interviews to two of the Sunday papers: Theresa May tells the Sunday Telegraph that Brussels must pay its own Brexit bill of billions of pounds for Britain’s share of the European Investment Bank and other joint projects, while Brexit Secretary David Davis uses a Sunday Times interview to warn the other 27 EU member states that they must moderate their demands for cash or face the UK walking away from the negotiating table altogether. Meanwhile, one of the Cabinet’s most pro-European voices, Damian Green, urges fellow former Remain voters to support Theresa May in this morning’s Observer.

BrexitCentral: Your daily briefing

BrexitCentralBannerJonathan Isaby, Editor, BrexitCentral, @isaby

Quite a busy 24 hours on the Brexit front! Firstly, I wanted to draw your attention to a story which seemed to get no coverage yesterday from otherwise distracted broadcast media: it is the ruling from the European Court of Justice relating to the EU’s trade deal with Singapore, which concluded that in many key areas – not least financial services – any trade deal does not need to be ratified by every national and regional parliament in every member state.  While such ratification will still be required in some areas such as dispute resolution, the core of a trade agreement – goods, services and public procurement – will not be subject to national consultation. Overall this is “likely to help the British government” – not my words, but those of The Guardian, no less.

Labour Leave: Juncker hasn’t denied authorising deceitful anti-British briefings

LabourLeave_150Ed Rennie, Labour Leave

Believe it or not there are some on the continent who would like an orderly, constructive and fairly negotiated exit deal between the UK and the EU. But Jean-Claude Juncker former Luxembourg Prime Minister and President of the EU Commission isn’t one of them. He hasn’t even denied authorising this month’s deceitful anti-British briefings, his ongoing delusions, not to mention his self delusion, beggar belief.

Here are just a few of his horrendous sayings.

Regarding the Lisbon Treaty: ‘Of course there will be transfers of sovereignty. But would I be intelligent to draw the attention of public opinion to this fact?’

Labour Leave: Get Behind Our Campaign

gina.jpgBy Brendan Chilton, Labour Leave

We have become increasingly concerned that Remainers are yet again seeking to derail Brexit through any means possible. They still cannot accept they lost. These people are used to getting what they want.

Their latest plot involves coordinating cross party tactical voting to promote MPs who “want the best for Britain”, as Best for Britain puts it, or MPs who “stick by their principles”, as Gina Miller puts it. Beneath the weasel words what they are doing is attempting to get anti-Brexit MPs elected.

Brexit Central Daily Briefing

Brexit has taken something of a back seat in the general election campaign over the last 24 hours, with the parties seeking to highlight policy in a range of others areas. Meanwhile, the business of government continues, hence Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson was in Brussels yesterday for a meeting with his EU counterparts at which closer co-operation on defence was on the agenda (remember when eurosceptics were chided and mocked for suggesting an EU army was in the planning?).

Jeremy Corbyn was Julie Etchingham’s guest for a one-on-one interview on ITV’s Tonight last night. Amongst other things, the Labour leader accepted in terms that free movement would end as a result of leaving the European Union (and by implication its single market) and that there would have to be a system of “managed migration”. Click here to watch a clip. But the newslinks below also include a report that interprets Corbyn’s latest words on the Brexit negotiations as a hint that as Prime Minister he would pay the mooted £85bn Brexit ‘divorce bill’.

EU Arranging Greek ‘Treatment’ For UK – We Must Be Prepared To Walk Away Or Be Enslaved

BrexitCentral.comBrexit Central: Be warned – the EU will try to bully the UK with the same tactics it used against Greece

Written by,

Austin Mitchell was Labour MP for Great Grimsby between 1977 and 2015.

Yanis Varoufakis has done a service to Britain and to Brexit with his account of the EU’s bullying and painful punishment of Greece in his book, Adults In The Room: My Battle With Europe’s Deep Establishment. It shows that the EU allows nothing – democracy, sense or national feeling – to stand in its way.

Labour Leave Video: “watch how billionaires plan to veto your vote”

LabourLeave_150Brendan Chilton, Labour Leave

Labour Leave today launches a new video on Remainers’ latest attempt to block Brexit.

Gina Miller has raised £300,000 to support candidates with “principles” who want a “final vote on the deal” – or, as everyone understands in plain English, she has raised £300k to back candidates who will block Brexit.

UKIP Management To Blame For Big Losses

woolfe DianeJames Paul Nuttal

nigelfarageThe reprehensible post Brexit referendum leadership spectacle, with Farage leaving just days after winning, followed by a lamentable string of squalid punch ups, departures and general misbehaviour turned many former UKIP members and supporters against them.

UKIP are not fit to govern but their policies are still a valid option to many in a vibrant democracy. Their local councillors did a good job, they are good people but they have been let down by leadership which finds it difficult to organise at national and county level.

A rump of soon to be dismissed UKIP MEP’s roaming the halls of Brussels and Strasbourg are all that remains. I hope Paul Nuttall has the grace and courage to stay on until he finds a successor for his position. Hopefully this will be done in a statesmanlike manner without too much backstabbing. A radical party of protest is still needed in Britain.

Nigel Farage should think very carefully about the damage his premature resignation caused and from a managerial perspective creating a party which cannot function without him.

The Bruges Group Analyzes Just Who Remain MPs Are

MP Watch
The most vulnerable remain backing MPs

408 of the UK’s 650 constituencies voted leave on 23rd June 2016. That is nearly 2/3 of all Parliamentary constituencies in the UK voting to leave. In 388 constituencies the leave vote exceeded the vote for the sitting MP. This analysis shows which of the MPs that opposed Leave in the referendum are the most vulnerable if they oppose, or seek to water down, Brexit.
