“We note the speculation emanating from the European Union exit talks regarding the Republic of Ireland and United Kingdom border.
We have been very clear. Northern Ireland must leave the EU on the same terms as the rest of the United Kingdom. We will not accept any form of regulatory divergence which separates Northern Ireland economically or politically from the rest of the United Kingdom. The economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom will not be compromised in any way.
British law should be sovereign in Britain. For Davis to even consider Barnier’s demand for ECJ primacy over Westminster, in any case, should be dismissed out of hand. Its an outrage.
Building delay and obfuscation into negotiations is the whole point of the EU position. It is a classic EU tactic based on the principle if you cannot get what you want now some pliant idiots will come along later, years later, and can be corrupted into giving in. Hence the Blair, Cable, Soros, Branson, Corporatist(Hammond) and Banker Carney’s Remain position
The anti-democratic nature of the EU makes Juncker and the EU ‘team’ unsackable, ideologically driven and arrogant.
Sadly Prime Minister May and her carefully selected Remain clique in cabinet are too close to the EU elite. They need to obtain an objective detachment from the EU’s institutions. That is being kind. You could be unkind and say she and Hammond are working for the EU and not the British people and they seek delay and obfuscation too on behalf of big business.
Many believe British sovereignty has been kidnapped by pre-meditated EU deceit and that May and her cabinet have the mentality of a kidnap victim assuming sympathy and alignment with its captors. A well understood kidnapping syndrome
The EU Commission is a proxy for Franco-German policy making and overlordship over EU states
Be ruled by laws handed down to us by people we never voted for
Keep the EU’s hands in our pockets for a very long time
The EU’s modus operandi when dealing with democracy is to ignore it wherever possible if it conflicts with the aims and objectives of achieving an EU superstate. Now it seems Hammond and May, and I see it in that order, have decided that the EU way of doing things, which will ultimately lead the UK back into the arms of the EU superstate, is the way to go. Delay, fudge and delay again until we hold a second referendum be it in the guise of a snap general election.
This is not what we voted for. This would be a betrayal.
Ed – The Juncker Bunker is a euphemism for the EU Commission and all its works. Since we voted to depart the EU nut-house there has been an increasing flow of erratic delusional decrees, directives and orders emerging from the bunker as reality gradually asserts itself over ideologically driven wishful thinking. Use of the term also denotes a siege mentality taking hold in the court of Emporer Juncker.
Express Headline: Fury as Juncker and EU commissioners splash £450k of TAXPAYERS’ cash on travel in 2 months
JEAN Claude Juncker and his fellow European Commissioners went on an “outrageous” half million euro (£450,000) spending splurge on junkets in just two months new figures have revealed.
Stories of gratuitous waste of public funds in the EU are many, but as we found out during the referendum campaign they are hardly mentioned and generaly swept under the carpet by a pliant EUrophile mainstream media. That has changed, now an accounting has to be made as part of Britain’s departure.
It is interesting to watch the EU’s leading negotiators having to come to terms with skeleton after skeleton emerging from the rotten core of unaudited expenditure carried out in the EU since Britain joined. Other states are watching aghast.
The British departure from the EU has caused a chain reaction of critical thinking and review by the European nation states of which the EU is comprised.
They are asking if the EU institutions: Commission, so-called Parliament, EU Council and the ECB are governing their countries the way they thought they would when their respective previous governments signed them up.
They are asking a lot of questions now which should have been asked at the time they joined.
With Article 50 triggered and Brexit negotiations well underway, the UK government looks like it’s carrying out the instructions it received from 17.4 million voters last summer. At best, Britain and the continent will establish a mutually advantageous trade relationship; at worst, the UK and EU will revert to World Trade Organization (WTO) rules, including minor tariffs on the exchange of goods and services. In either case, it seems, the UK will regain control over its finances, its borders, and its laws –all of which are necessary to fulfill the mandate given by voters.
Nevertheless, a growing threat hangs over Brexit Britain.
In hopes of consolidating power, Prime Minister Theresa May called an election in June. Rather than expand her mandate with a comfortable majority in Parliament, May’s Conservatives lost their majority, necessitating the support of Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist MPs to govern.
