Countdown to the end of Democracy in the UK 23:28 - Nov 10 with 1224457 viewspikeypaul



And like a typical anti democracy remoaner he decided the will of the people should be ignored the minute the democratic result was in total fecking hypocrite 😂😂😂😂😂😂

Despite it being voted in to law by the commons the spineless two faced remoaner MPs have totally abandoned any morals and decided to ignore the will of the British people.

It will be remembered and no election or referendum will ever be the same again in this country.

The one thing that will come is a massive surge in the popularity of UKIP or a similar party in the future who stand for the 52%.

Happy Days.

In what may be the funniest political example of ‘hoist by their own petard’ in recent memory, it seems that a legal challenge is now being made as the deal currently being negotiated breaches an amendment to section 55 of the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Act 2018. An amendment tabled by none other than Jacob Rees Mogg to make things more awkward for Theresa May’s hopes of passing a deal.

The amendment reads:

“1)It shall be unlawful for Her Majesty’s Government to enter into arrangements under which Northern Ireland forms part of a separate customs territory to Great Britain.

(2)For the purposes of this section “customs territory” shall have the same meaning as in the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1947 as amended.”

And, hilariously, the GATT definition doesn’t worry too much about legal customs union, but economic customs union as it says ‘customs union is an agreement between two or more neighboring countries to remove trade barriers, reduce or abolish customs duty”. Which is exactly what Johnson has been negotiating.

Lol.

As an aside, it follows that if they have the numbers to pass a deal, they have the numbers to remove the JRM amendment, but not in time to avoid Johnson requiring an extension.

No we haven’t.

We have signed 15 continuity deals totalling c. 8% of our total trade. So pretty close to zero.

Can we please stop making stuff up.


And not all of those are complete carry overs. There are some exceptions in some of them, if I remember rightly.

Totally deluded as evidenced by their failed Brexit.
Totally cruel as evidenced by Grenfell.
Totally uncaring as evidenced by Windrush.

Or indeed Russian money loaned to polital parties/groups throughout Europe who are some distance away from the political center (left or right). The French National Front, for example.

The EU is right to fear an ultra-competitive independent Britain
Madeline Grant



Remainers like to think of the UK as a non-entity, but it is Europe that is the over-regulated backwater

In recent years, Brexit’s most implacable opponents have revelled in rubbishing Britain’s hopes of succeeding on the world stage. Britain is a diminished country, they insist, incapable of functioning on its own. Consider Emma Thompson’s description of the UK as “a cake-filled misery-laden grey old island”, or Michael Heseltine’s glorious Freudian slip when challenged about our economy outperforming EU rivals: the UK “is doing significantly better than you might hope”.

Yet at the weekend came a dose of (unintended) optimism, from an equally unexpected quarter: Angela Merkel. The German Chancellor warned of the threat an independent UK posed to the EU. “With the departure of Great Britain, a potential competitor will of course emerge for us. In addition to China and the United States of America, there will be Great Britain as well.”

Merkel’s remarks confound the hardline Remainer delusion of post-Brexit Britain as a strategic non-entity. They confirm, too, that European leaders are indeed afraid of a dynamic, competitive, deregulated Britain (a “Singapore on Thames”) emerging on their doorstep.

This is not the first time that EU leaders and officials have spoken in these terms: the difference is that now such fears could become reality. The Government has decided to abandon several key tenets of Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement insofar as they apply to Great Britain; a UK-wide customs union, pledges of regulatory alignment and “level playing field provisions” – agreed rules on environmental standards, labour regulations and state aid. These would have forced the British mainland to accede to scores of EU rules, determined by Brussels (often in the interests of those most capable of lobbying Brussels, not consumers).

Merkel went on to add that “Europe must show what the European Union can achieve: That means we must work faster, work more consistently, and the new [European] Commission... should also become operational as quickly as possible.”

It may be tempting for some commentators to read this as a declaration of (healthy) competition with Britain. But this would be to ignore the EU’s history.

Europhiles often portray the EU as a “free market” which we are foolishly abandoning. In fact, it is a highly regulated, protectionist bloc, which harms nations’ comparative advantages internally through “harmonisation”, and, rather than compete on the global market, prefers to stifle competition through the Common External Tariff. The EU’s attempts to bring Switzerland to heel by denying access to the Single Market show that it is not afraid of bullying where necessary.

Instead of working to improve its own competitiveness, since the referendum the EU has sought to nullify Britain as a competitor – and, with the passing of May’s deal, would have succeeded. Merkel’s comments should remind us of the perils of remaining too closely aligned after Brexit.

After all, the EU has long been reluctant to embrace economic dynamism, while others have adopted more innovative approaches towards science, agriculture, medical research, AI and much else. The precautionary principle, EU regulators’ favoured risk management strategy, places the onus on the creators of new technologies to prove their invention is safe where some risk may exist – even if there’s no scientific consensus to suggest any real harm will occur. The result? It’s often too much bother to innovate.

This dirigiste trend seems deeply entrenched; in the last year alone, Emmanuel Macron has promised enhanced protections for French farmers, while Germany has launched a new industrial strategy to defend “national champions” against threats from China and the USA
.
Singapore, with its statist and authoritarian social policies, may not be a perfect model of governance, but it can teach Brexit Britain much about building a flourishing economy. The PM’s promise of new regimes for fisheries, agriculture and trade in the Queen’s Speech, to “[seize] the opportunities” of leaving the EU, puts the Government on the right side of the ideological divide, at least for now. Meanwhile, Merkel’s intervention is a reminder of the high stakes that make our departure all the more urgent.

"I believe that Jeremy Corbyn is not fit to serve as our Prime Minister. With a general election looming and the possibility of him becoming Prime Minister I feel I have to take a stand. I cannot advocate a government led by Jeremy Corbyn.

Under Jeremy Corbyn's leadership, antisemitism has become mainstream in the Labour Party. Jewish members have been bullied, abused and driven out. Anti-semites have felt comfortable and vile conspiracy theories have been propagated. A party that permits anti-Jewish racism to flourish cannot be called 'anti-racist'.

This is not compatible with the Labour Party's values of equality, tolerance and respect for minorities. Shamefully its anti-Jewish racism is now being investigated by one of the last Labour government's proudest creations, the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
