Leaving the EU is now vital to secure the future of the UK and will positively impact the long term of everything that we do

Today has been signifiant. Boris has already achieved significantly more than his predecessor Theresa May, and the chronology of events when we look back on the whole of the Brexit saga is likely to be seen to have pivoted on events that have happened today.

With Merkel saying her piece to Boris, followed by outbursts by Tusk and then Coveney on Twitter too, few of the objective people who are observing this saga unfold will have been left with any doubt about the content of the message that we have collectively been told.

The EU is and never was interested in compromise upon anything meaningful with the UK over Brexit, unless it resulted in a permanent state of Remain.

That they and the Irish Government thought that leaving Northern Ireland behind would ever be acceptable to the UK in order to secure mutually acceptable terms with the EU before Leaving is simply breathtaking in the extreme.

But the EU is an organisation that has form. And if our MPs had been fulfilling their roles as our representatives better – and arguably as they should – we would never have got to the place that we are, where the behaviour of the EU has had to be pushed to become so open and obvious, that many People across the Country are today wondering exactly what it was that we elected these MPs for.

What should now be clear to everyone, is the UK cannot thrive as it should, could and would do in the future, if we are tied to the EU and any of its Member States by even the most trivial policy devices – if they resemble anything that looks like Remain.

We must be able to set our own agenda in our relationships with the World outside. Set our own tariffs and border requirements. And most significantly write and implement all of the laws under which we are governed and required to observed as people and as businesses within.

We must do this because we the British People and the people from amongst us that we ask to represent us are the only people capable of knowing how to serve the interests of this Country best.

Only British People have the understanding of what our communities, businesses and public services need. And we need to have genuine localism working in our Cities, Towns, Parishes and Neighbourhoods in a way that centralising everything towards unelected bureaucrats in a European City never could deliver.

It is only if we do this, and are brave with the decisions that we make along the way and as we do so, that we can begin to address the real problems that are affecting our society. Knife crime, poverty, disenfranchisement, the housing shortage, the climate crisis and a whole lot more besides.

People have been suspicious of it, but might have never realised that many of the problems that we have in this Country have been created because of the way our law making has been exported to the EU. Rules have been changed and the responsibility for doing so given away to people with neither the interest nor understanding of what we all really need in this Country – the same basic responsibilities that UK politicians and MPs MUST be equipped with as a basic step in future, if their UK Lawmaking is to really do any good.

We cannot achieve anything genuinely good in and for this Country or indeed any of the other Countries and their Peoples around the World that we care for, if we Remain tied into the EU monolith in any way at all.

The EU has today proven that they are not interested in facilitating democracy. That they have no respect for it and that they are prepared to do anything and everything possible to keep what they clearly see as the UK cash cow, tied into the EU Project for good.

Its time that we all not only see but also accept that the UK’s best interests and the best interests of the EU are not, have never and will never be legitimately aligned or in any way the same.

We must Leave the EU as soon as possible and then reform our political system too so that neither Foreign Governments, the bureaucrats that represent them, or sell-out politicians of our own can prioritise outside interests.

The British People and our Industries are too important to be left to the whims of anyone who is on their own agenda and drunk on their sense of self importance and control.

 

The EU’s plan is fully in the open and the dishonesty of Remain MPs has been completely exposed. It’s time for a General Election

img_4315No matter how much the Remainers in Parliament protest and suggest that Angela Merkel was merely responding to Boris Johnson in kind, the fact is that the EU has now firmly tied its colours to the mast.

Whilst the Parliamentary dynamic means that Boris could again be stopped from delivering a no deal Brexit with dubious technicalities alone, it has become very clear that the Remain-collective-opposition in Parliament will be doing nobody any favours if they continue squatting in their Seats whilst protesting that there is some kind of deal with the EU to be had. That ship has already sailed.

Whether the approach and obfuscation they have adopted in pursing a deal that would never exist has been based on ignorance, arrogance, sycophancy towards the EU or all, these MPs are responsible for over three years of wasted parliamentary time.

Issues that are affecting real people in the world outside of Westminster could and should have been discussed, addressed – and yes, on that Government timeline actually solved and presented as solutions to us all too.

There are probably a great many of us who would like Boris to now pull some kind of Benn-Act-disabling white rabbit out of the hat. But next to making the argument that now that the EU has made its position clear, the terms upon which we would Leave the EU now on 31st of October are still to all intents and purposes an agreement – and therefore a deal that qualifies his actions against the questionable ruling of the Supreme Court – the wisest amongst us would probably be sensible to assume that Boris has been playing a game of high-stakes poker with both the Remainers and the EU, because it is difficult to see that he has anything that could remotely resemble an ace or two buried away somewhere up his sleeve.

It doesn’t matter now that the cat is out of the bag. With the reality that there never was a sensible compromise with the EU waiting to be had, the focus of any MP who has an ounce of respect left for the People who elected them to Office will move to facilitating the General Election that the British People have been waiting for, rather than continuing to do everything possible to frustrate our will.

But whilst all of our MPs and the Political Parties they represent will be falling over themselves to go back to being tribal and make ‘Vote Conservative, Labour, Lib Dem’ or whatever Party the cause, they would be wise to step back and remember that Brexit was a symptom of the things they and politicians before them have been doing in office and was not in any way the cause.

 

It was always Leave OR Remain and Merkel has given the lie to the suggestion of anything else

Whilst it has taken the arrival of Boris and the chaos we are now experiencing in Parliament to do it, It seems we now have clarity on the real position of the EU and those MPs obsessed with Remain.

In her response to No10 this morning, Merkel has made clear that the cost of the UK Leaving the EU as part of a deal, will be the ultimate surrender of Northern Ireland.

Whilst Remainer MPs are likely to keep on arguing that we cannot Leave the EU without a deal, we have reached the point where what many have suspected all the way since the Referendum has been confirmed: The so-called deal that Remainer MPs have been pushing for is the same thing as Remaining in the EU.

We now know that honouring the Referendum Result will not be achieved in any way other than for the UK to Leave the EU with a clean break. There is no middle ground to be had.
