As long as the EU can provide clarification on what the temporary means with regards to the Irish backstop issue, Jeremy Hunt says that MPs could well vote the PM’s deal through.

Talking to the BBC Radio 4 Today programme he said that if this was done then the deal could absolutely get through the vote.

But although the Backstop is a big, big problem, there are other issues that make this deal a non-starter anyway.

For example, there are serious questions over how much it enmeshes our military and security services into the EU and how much of our foreign policy could be controlled by Brussels.

And another really big one is that, at the moment, we have no idea what the subsequent trade deal would actually look like in two plus years time.

Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement only gets the UK to the starting gate to commence further talks on agreeing the final deal. The withdrawal agreement is legally binding, but the route to getting that final deal in two years time is – let’s use the word – nebulous.

It is based on a 26 page non binding political declaration and uses wooly terms like ‘best endeavours’ and ‘in good faith’.

Should our MPs be stupid enough to agree to this garbage deal, we would be stuck in the transition phase trying to negotiate our way out of it on the back of a plan written in crayon on the back of a fag-packet.

Moving on, the Remain campaign group ‘Best for Britain’ has come up with a report on how to stop Brexit and force a second referendum by getting MPs to block the government’s tax raising powers unless they hold a second referendum.

What they suggest is that MPs vote down Theresa May’s deal, then vote to ensure that the no-deal option is ruled out.

And part of this would be to put an amendment in the Finance Bill going through the house right now that no taxes can be collected without a second referendum being held. That would affect income tax and corporation tax, which is about a third of all government income.

The Remain Campaigning Tory MP and former Attorney General, Dominic Grieve, wrote tor foreword for the report and it was put together with the help of ex Lib Dem MP and lawyer David Howarth.

To put it bluntly, these Remainers are prepared to threaten to bring the country to its knees by stopping the government being able to collect taxes to spend on such things as our hospitals, schools, security and defence.

Their threats, if they came to pass, would do far more damage than any WTO Brexit.

Are there no desperate depths to which these people will not sink in order to impose the will of Brussels over our lives and more importantly against the wishes of the majority?

And of course, all this does is gives the Eurocrats all the confidence they need to continually say no to all our proposals.

Finally, the Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has called on the PM to cut short MPs Christmas holidays and reconvene parliament on the 2nd January 2019 for an early vote on her Brexit plans.

At them moment Theresa May has ordered her ministers back for a cabinet meeting on the 2nd January 2019, but MPs are not due back into Westminster until Monday the 7th January, to restart deliberations on her Brexit plan prior to voting on it – if that happens – during the following week of the 14th to the 18th January 2019.

In response to Corbyn’s demands, a Downing Street source said:

“Instead of making silly demands, Jeremy Corbyn should be honest with voters that he has no alternative plan and only intends to frustrate Brexit, ultimately betraying the referendum result.”

Corbyn might just be on the Brexit side of the argument, but the power brokers in his party and most of his MPs will do all they can to betray Brexit.

Whereas, of course, the PM intends to frustrate the will of the people another way, by trying to force through her Brexit In Name Only (BRINO) proposals that would reduce this country to the UK In Name Only (UKINO).

According to Zerohedge (https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-12-03/conservatives-accuse-may-brexit-cover-over-refusal-release-legal-advice-full), May is stoking suspicions that she is trying to hide the fact that the Brexit deal, as it’s currently written, could result in the UK being stuck inside the EU customs union in perpetuity – a scenario that Brexiteers have warned would reduce the UK to a ‘vassal state’ of Europe.

Angry ministers have threatened everything from calling a vote of no confidence in the government to holding Cox in contempt if No. 10 Downing Street doesn’t authorize the release of the unabridged legal advice. But in an act of defiance, May on Monday released a 43-page summary of the AG’s advice that one reporter said appeared to leave out most of the AG’s most controversial findings.

As we noted earlier, a leaked analysis shows that May lied to lawmakers when she said there was no risk of the UK being trapped inside the customs union. As the Guardian explains, while the text of the withdrawal agreement clearly states that any end to the ‘backstop’ must happen by consensus (which, assuming the backstop is eventually triggered, would happen once a new trade deal has been reached) between the UK and the EU. So Brexiteers’ warnings have a clear basis in the text of the agreement. However, many MPs are suspicions that AG Cox was more negative about this in private than he has been in public.

Some Labour MPs have warned that, by refusing, May has risked sparking a constitutional crisis. This is because MPs voted last month to force the government to release the legal advice “in full”. But May has effectively ignored these demands and continued to withhold Cox’s unabridged advice. The controversy has prompted at least one conservative MP, Sam Gyimah, to quit his cabinet post in protest, saying that releasing the unabridged advice is vital to “restoring trust in politics,” according to the BBC.

May’s Brexit deal, no deal or no Brexit!



The opinion of the ECJ Advocate General that the UK can unilaterally revoke its Article 50 letter, has put the proverbial cat amongst the pigeons.

On the day that the House of Commons is due to start a marathon five day debate on Theresa May’s Brexit deal, culminating in the ‘meaningful vote’ next Tuesday, the Advocate General of the European Court of Justice, Manuel Campos Sanchez-Bordona, has stated that in his opinion the UK can unilaterally revoke its Article 50 letter and remain in the European Union without having to go to the EU27 for permission.

As I pointed out this morning, this is his opinion but in coming to its decision in the next couple of weeks, it would be unusual for the ECJ not to heed his advice.

And isn’t it strange that this comes out after weeks of being told that it’s May’s deal, no deal or no Brexit at all? You could be forgiven for thinking that it’s all been choreographed.

Now, I have to remind you that although the UK Remain establishment and Remoaners will be happy with this development, the EU Council and EU Commission will not be, as their lawyers did not want this outcome as I explained in a previous video, the link to which is above.

This intervention, does add a couple of new facets to what is being debated as of about 4:30 this afternoon and to how MPs vote next Tuesday – so the ECJ Advocate General has effectively interfered with internal UK politics.

The first thing to point out is that our politicians will be aware that the ECJ could ignore Bordona’s initial advice, which inserts uncertainty into the equation.

The second big driver is time, with Christmas fast approaching and less than four months to Brexit day, the pressure is on and trying to fit a general election or another referendum into that time would be nigh on impossible for those who wish to stop Brexit – and there would be huge political problems in doing that.

So, it seems it will now be down to them! It is now down to our mostly Remain minded politicians to make that decision in Parliament in the next few weeks.

So if you are a Leave politician are you now going to fear the possibility of a Brexit reversal and back Theresa May’s deal on the basis that a bird in hand is worth two in the bush?

Will this bring round Tory Brexiteers to the PM’s way of thinking?

And will it make Remain minded MPs more likely to oppose May’s deal in the hope that it will lead to Article 50 being revoked very quickly?

Now, one of the authors of Article 50, Lord Kerr, says that should the ECJ agree in its final ruling then we could decide to stay in the EU on current terms.

The trouble with that though, is that the UK has been signing off all sorts of EU empowering stuff, especially in the areas of defence and foreign policy, on the basis that we were leaving and we did not want to get in the way of the political direction that the EU27 wished to take.

So arguably the Remainers would opt for a general election or referendum to try and be seen to win over the voters, but as I’ve already pointed out, there isn’t really time and there are no guarantees – the electorate let them down as they see it in 2016, they might very well do that again.

And the Remainer Holy Grail of exiting from Brexit could be within their grasp if the ECJ decision goes their way. But they have to move fast.

Finally, the head of the UK financial services regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Andrew Bailey, told the House of Commons Treasury Select Committee, that the UK is better prepared to protect UK financial services consumers that the EU is, should there be a no deal WTO exit from the EU.

“In the context of the EU end of this – he told the committee – there will be consumers who are EU residents and EU citizens but there will also be UK expatriates living in the EU who fall into that group of EU resident consumers.

“We obviously are working and doing quite a bit of work with the Government on that but I have to tell you they are in a different place in that sense to the assurance I can give you in respect of UK resident consumers.”

You could be forgiven for thinking then that the EU has decided not to prepare as they think we will be taking May’s Brexit In Name Only (BRINO) deal – or believe that our politicians will take the step of negating Article 50 altogether.

May’s Great Brexit Surrender!



120 days to the allotted day for the Full Withdrawal of the UK from the EU, better known as FWUKEU and it is actually just four months to the day – but where are we on it? And what about this much vaunted May vs Corbyn TV debate?

While much of the nation will be tuning in for the final episode of something called ‘I’m a Celebrity’ Theresa May is gearing up for a Brexit showdown with Jeremy Corbyn.

Now this is not going to be the fight of the century because they are both coming out of the same Remain-based corner of the boxing ring.

And in the other corner there will be no-one to represent the 17.4 million voters who voted to Leave the EU.

But the real problem is that these two can’t, it seems, decide on whether the BBC or ITV will do the best job of presenting it.

I understand that the PM wants a BBC confrontation and it has obligingly cleared its schedules for it – and the Labour leader wants it to take place on ITV.

It will just be a boring Tory vs Labour bashing exercise anyway and watchers will still be – purposely – in the dark about May’s atrocious deal.

One of the really big points missed in all of this is, if the UK does not leave the EU on the 29th March 2019 in the certain knowledge that it will definitely regain full and unfettered control over its laws, borders, policy making, defence and money, in short order, then not only will the voters have been denied but it would guarantee that the Brexit debate will continue to dog politics until we either hand over the country to the EU with no way back, or we regain control and diverge to make our own way in the world.

There will never, ever be a halfway house on this one.

Any connection to the EU will always be designed as a pull factor to reel us in and there are too many people in high places who would be more than willing to give that a helping hand.

The EU has successfully pulled Switzerland close to itself with a patchwork of 120 separate deals but is now insisting on a more far-reaching deal or the old deals will not be renewed. The negotiations for that are ongoing but the Eurocrats want it signed, sealed and delivered now.

An article on the Gatestone Institute website says:

“The EU is now pressing Switzerland to sign a comprehensive “framework agreement” that would require Bern to cede even more sovereignty to Brussels. The EU, for instance, wants Switzerland to subject itself to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice (ECJ). If Switzerland complies with the demand, the ECJ would outrank the Swiss Supreme Court as the final arbiter of legal disputes in the country.”

And while the PM goes on about how wonderful her Brexit In Name Only (BRINO) deal is, the former head of MI6, Sir Richard Dearlove and Falklands War veteran, Major General Julian Thompson, have warned in a letter that May’s deal not only surrenders UK defence forces to EU control, it also compromises vital UK intelligence, which threatens Western security by risking the ‘Five Eyes’ alliance of the USA, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK.

It also says that the £39 billion so-called Brexit divorce bill should not be paid and that we should leave on WTO terms.

Isn’t it obvious that we must now leave on WTO terms to properly safeguard our sovereignty in all areas. And save some dosh too. Anything else is a Great Brexit Surrender!

Personally, I don’t think that May’s deal stands a chance of getting through Parliament. And without a massive change in the Commons via a leadership vote or a general election how can anything else but a WTO exit be on the cards?

Both the EU and UK should now do what they should have been concentrating right from day one after the referendum – a full exit of the UK from the EU on WTO terms – and putting in place the infrastructure and agreements to make it work for us all.

Unless of course, enough of our MPs can get together to put in an amendment to upcoming legislation that overrides all the previous Brexit Acts to force the government to negotiate with the EU for an extension of Article 50. The Lords would be more than happy to rubber stamp that one.

In fact I expect to see that attempted several times in both houses in the coming months whatever the outcome.

And finally, an update on the post-Brexit UK/US open skies agreement that was being finalised yesterday. It’s been agreed.
