Theresa May Must Go – Sooner Rather Than Later!



IMPORTANT UPDATE: The article referred to in this video has been pulled from the Bruges Group website.

If the Brexit claims on the Bruges Group website are anywhere near true and accurate, then the Conservative Party may as well start the winding up procedure today.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT A FULL TRANSCRIPT!!

There is a claim on the Bruges Group website that Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement is the result of a huge collusion between Mrs May and the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel.

Now, for those that don’t know, the Bruges Group is a think-tank which holds meetings and produces research on issues relating to Britain’s membership of the European Union.

Now, one of the website’s contributors, John Petley, claims to have access to a significant and reliable source that passed on the following to him.

At an urgent meeting called by EU officials on Monday the 9th of July 2018, top business people were told that May and Merkel had come to an agreement.

This agreement was designed to appease Brexiteers while allowing Mrs May to, quote, “…get rid of those people in her party who were against progress and unity in the EU” unquote.

Then it was agreed that this would be likely to end up with the UK rejoining the EU soon after the next general election.

So our PM agreed to keep the UK as closely tied to the EU as possible in the interim and both of them said that “the only realistic future for the UK was within the EU”.

And then comes the story of the Withdrawal Agreement being conjured up in Merkel’s office and sent under Secret cover to the UK Cabinet Office. Followed by it shuffling between the two until the final draft was agreed.

The upshot is that, if this train of events is correct, the whole thing was negotiated between Mrs May and Mrs Merkel on a German authored document, with UK civil service collusion, while bypassing David Davis but keeping certain EU business leaders informed, so as to engineer a temporary gap in our EU membership.

It is also claimed that “Key EU heads” were told all about this before the UK Cabinet had it bounced on them, at that now infamous Chequers meeting.

It’s just a pity that the author of the Bruges Group article cannot provide source documents for the claims because of the sensitivity of the source, as they do seem to tie in neatly with other snippets that have come out since that Chequers Cabinet meeting.

But whatever the veracity of the claims, given events since Theresa May came to power it should be obvious to all that she is not the person that should be running the country and our future negotiations with the EU after the 29th March.

Pity the Tories can’t get rid of her until November then, isn’t it? Due to her winning a vote of confidence from her party MPs last November, so giving her a year’s grace.

But whatever her plans were, I think both she and the EU have been surprised by the opposition to her proposals. They obviously got that completely wrong and now the PM is in the battle of her career to try and force this misbegotten deal down the parliamentary collective gullet.

And she has so far failed, to the extent that time looks to have run out on her and her schemes, with the WTO exit route looking the current favourite. No wonder the Eurocrats are suddenly looking so worried.

Finally, I talked a couple of weeks ago about the disgraced Former Labour MP, Fiona Onasanya, who was imprisoned for perverting the course of justice, saying that once her appeals process had come to an end that she could be subject to the recalls procedure.

This would allow for her to be ejected from her seat and a by-election held, if a minimum of 10 percent of the voters in her constituency sign an official petition for this to occur.

The news today is that she has lost her appeal and as a result the UKIP leader, Gerard Batten has called on the Speaker of the House of Commons to get on and commence the recall procedure under the Recall of MPs Act 2015.

UKIP has already lined up local councillor John Whitby to fight this predominantly leave seat, where the out vote won by 60.9% to 39.1%.

My Deal or no Brexit says Theresa May!



Still pushing her doomed deal, the PM gave a speech in Stoke-on-Trent this morning where the message is now becoming: it’s either my deal or, if not, the more likely outcome is parliamentary paralysis leading to no Brexit.

The Prime Minister, Theresa May, has changed her mantra from ‘her deal or no deal’, to ‘her deal or no Brexit’.

She said that there were those in Westminster who would use “every device available to them” in order to “delay, or even stop, Brexit”.

Well, I think all of us could have told her that over the last two and a half years – and I also personally include her in that bracket!

In response to her speech, the UKIP leader Gerard Batten said:

“What we are witnessing is the political establishment fighting over their preferred method of stopping Brexit – should it be through Mrs May’s surrender document, a General Election or another referendum?

“In their arrogance and contempt for the will of the 17.4 million who voted to leave the European Union, the political establishment have embarrassed the nation in the eyes of the world.”

And he went on to say that if you want to leave the EU, there is no choice but to vote for UKIP at every opportunity.

Now, Mrs May will not have made a comment like this in a speech without very careful thought.

Maybe now that she’s exhausted all other avenues of support, she’s trying a last stab at getting the Brexiteers on board again with the threat that Brexit will be stopped, if they do not support her deal.

But of course all the Remainer MPs will now think ‘oh goody’ and vote her deal down and they vastly outnumber the Leave supporting MPs. So it probably won’t have achieved anything other than haemorrhaging more support.

Also there are many among the MPs who believe that if they vote down the deal today, the Eurocrats will just come up with some amendment to the legal text to the Withdrawal Agreement that puts the Irish Backstop issue to bed.

But getting anything out of the EU on this matter thus far has been like getting blood from a stone and the joint letter from Donald Tusk and Jean-Claude Juncker she received today, although full of warm words about the backstop contained nothing obvious to me you could hold up in court.

There is also the matter that, if – well actually when – any backstop issues did arise from this in the years to come, both Tusk and Juncker will be long gone and all that will stand is the legally binding Withdrawal Agreement document.

But this afternoon the PM told the House of Commons in her statement that the Attorney General has written to her today saying that the letter from Tusk and Juncker is legally binding in international law.

But for me, unless the actual text of the Withdrawal Agreement is amended, then surely the Attorney General’s original warnings of being permanently stuck in the backstop apply?

Anyway – there goes another one. Tory whip Gareth Jones, the MP for Dartford, has resigned from government because he can’t support the Prime Minister’s Brexit In Name Only (BRINO) deal.

That brings the total Brexit government casualties to thirteen – unlucky for some.

Coming the day before the expected so-called ‘meaningful vote’ the resignation of one of the people tasked to try and get it through, must be a bit embarrassing for the PM.

It looks like tomorrow evening’s vote is going to be a bit of a landslide defeat for the PM, so all she can hope to do really is limit the damage.

It doesn’t matter how badly she loses the vote, she is immune for another 11 months from an internal party challenge, but she might feel compelled to resign. It could also set in chain a vote of no confidence in her government that could force her out.

And it is reported today that Dominic Raab made a speech, which pundits say can only be viewed as a leadership pitch. Maybe the first of many to come from those Tory big-wigs eyeing Number Ten.

An interesting 48 hours to come.

Delay Brexit if Deal Rejected Grieve Tells May!



Conservative MP Dominic Grieve is on a mission to force a second EU referendum in the almost certain event that Theresa May’s doomed Brexit deal is voted out by MPs next Tuesday.

Tory MP and former Attorney General, Dominic Grieve, has now become a bit of a front man for the Remain campaign.

He is the architect of two successful amendments to legislation that has forced the PM to speed up the Brexit process and also ensured that whatever she proposes after her deal is voted down, is amendable and can be debated.

And now he is calling for the time and date that the UK leaves the EU be removed from the Withdrawal Act and for the PM to then approach the EU to extend the Article 50 negotiation phase.

The trouble is, that is not actually possible as far as I can see.

The wording of the 2018 European Union Withdrawal Act means that a Minister of the Crown may amend the Act to ensure that the ‘exit day’ within it reflects the actual time that the EU treaties no longer apply to the UK.

So, the UK would surely have to negotiate extending Article 50 to another date and time first, and then amend the Withdrawal Act accordingly.

Amending the act itself won’t change anything as we have to get the EU to agree first with the unanimous agreement of all EU27 member states and, if just one refuses to oblige, then we will be forced out on exit day by EU law anyway – unless we revoke the Article 50 letter unilaterally before exit day and Remain in the EU. But then the Act would again be wrong as it would have a date for our leaving the EU on it and statute is to be obeyed is it not?

But bear in mind that should Article 50 be extended beyond the beginning of June 2019, then the UK will have to hold elections for new Members of the EU Parliament. And remember that the Withdrawal Act repealed the European Parliamentary Elections Act of 2002 and the European Parliament (Representation) Act of 2003 – these would need to be resurrected.

So, we’d either be going for an extension of about eight weeks to tidy things up and ensure we had left by then, or more probably the push would be a for a meaty extension of one or two years.

Now, speculation that the PM might be angling for an Article 50 extension despite her constant statements that we will be leaving the EU whatever on the 29th March, have been given a boost by the news that all the Tory MEPs have been summoned to Downing Street.

Downing Street has claimed this meeting is just normal procedure.

Or they could be there to be told that she is delaying the meaningful vote again.

And the Article 50 extension speculation has also been heightened by claims that ministers do not now have enough time in the parliamentary diary to get all of the legislation required to leave the EU through the system.

This could, of course, just be Remainer ministers trying it on, but you have to remember all of the games the Remainers, like Dominic Grieve, will be playing with those bills to try and stymie Brexit – with the added procedural nudge now and again from an anti-Brexit Speaker no doubt.

And there has, of course been a lot of talk about parliament needing to come up with its own Brexit plan when Theresa May’s deal is voted down. But there are already two main plans in the minds of MPs – apart of course from the usual Canada +++ or Norway models or derivatives of same, that have no real support base at all.

No, as I see it, the two main plans swirling around Westminster that will, in the end, have to be chosen between, are Leave on WTO terms or Remain.

That’s really it. The rest I think is all window dressing.

And in depressing news, two of the big donors to the Leave campaign, Peter Hargreaves and Crispin Odey, are now saying that they fear that the UK will never leave the EU.

I don’t personally share their pessimism, as the Remainers would still have a huge mountain to climb to prevent us slipping by default into a WTO exit once May’s deal is dispatched with.
