Yanis has been there and been given the run around by the EU and its 5 Presidents. The EU demands clarity from us but it never gives clarity. Who is responsible for what is a quicksand of ambiguity in the EU. The EU does not want to negotiate a mutually beneficial deal with us. It wants us to surrender unconditionally as if we had been defeated in a major war. It wants us to pay them huge financial reparations. That number keeps changing as well. It is the EU way but when one asks what are we paying for there are no answers just bluster and Gallic shrugs.
We obviously cannot accept this so I ask why bother? We have a perfectly good alternative, WTO rules that 93% of World trade is conducted under. What is happening is a meaningless dance to cover.
HMG's back from accusations, that the Lib Dems, have already made that we did not try to negotiate. We have a very active 6th column in our country from our own government officials Sir Humphrey et al to the CBI, TUC, Labour party, thespians over paid VCs, the BBC,the list is endless. but they all have one thing in common, they are all on the EU payroll and EU promises of preferment..
John Redwood hit the nail on the head in his blog,
The Remainer's tactics are delay, delay and yet more delay. At the same time there will be a constant drip of EU propaganda via EU sympathetic journalists. Most insidious is the Lib Dem scandalous policy that there should be a second Referendum on the results of the government's so called negotiations. There can be no better bargaining chip for the EU and no better way of betraying our country.
May was right to say no deal is better than a bad deal. We must stick to this and wait.
Sooner or later the other peoples of the EU will realise they are simply the slaves of the Fourth Reich. The so called European Court of Justice is no such thing. It is a political court designed to advance the EU's political objectives. EU economic arguments are always subservient to EU political objectives. I made this argument in 1972 when I was in the Civil Service and I was vilified. Most politicians had not even bothered to read the Treaty of Rome and in particular the clause on ever closer union.
In the EU we are dealing with an aggressive expansionist empire every bit as bad as the Third Reich and Napoleon's Continental system. The crunch will come in the Ukraine where Napoleon and Hitler came to grief but not before many millions of innocents had died. If the EU takes on Russia it will be history repeating itself for the third time.
Listen to Yanis and get out of the EU right now..
Boris is also right
