Theresa May secures legally binding Brexit deal, so what makes this proposal different? | ABC News

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has clinched legally binding Brexit assurances from the European Union in a last-ditch attempt to win over rebellious British MPs who had threatened to vote down her divorce deal again.

  1. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  2. Legally binding, bollocks. Like an EU official, sick of incompetent Poms, said, ‘Britain is looking for Europe to provide some sort of magical solution to its own domestic political problems’. The Poms look utterly ridiculous, pining for some mythic glorious past. The most corrupt British government ever, which somehow had its millionaire MPs portraying themselves as some sort of warriors against elites, fighting for the average Briton. Insane that people fell for this shit.

  3. Apparently The UK doesn’t want sovereignty, just the idea of it. May screwed the people. They actually want you to ask permission as if they were a parent. Sure you can go, but here’s the rules. If there is rules, you really didn’t leave!

  4. No deal IS the only deal and what they are not reporting to you through the media…WHAT THE LISBON TREATY REALLY MEANS: Check out the Lisbon Treaty if you wish: • 1: The UK along with all existing members of the EU lose their abstention veto in 2020 as laid down in the Lisbon Treaty when the system changes to that of majority acceptance with no abstentions or veto’s being allowed. • 2: All member nations will become states of the new federal nation of the EU by 2022 as clearly laid out in the Lisbon treaty with no exceptions or veto’s. • 3: All member states must adopt the Euro by 2022 and any new member state must do so within 2 years of joining the EU as laid down in the Lisbon treaty. • 4: The London stock exchange will move to Frankfurt in 2020 and be integrated into the EU stock exchange resulting in a loss of 200,000 plus jobs in the UK because of the relocation. (This has already been pre-agreed and is only on a holding pattern due to the Brexit negotiations, which if Brexit does happen the move is fully cancelled but if not and the UK remains a member it’s full steam ahead for the move.) • 5: The EU Parliament and ECJ become supreme over all legislative bodies of the UK. • 6: The UK will adopt 100% of whatever the EU Parliament and ECJ lays down without any means of abstention or veto, negating the need for the UK to have the Lords or even the Commons as we know it today. • 7: The UK will NOT be able to make its own trade deals. • 8: The UK will NOT be able to set its own trade tariffs. • 9 The UK will NOT be able to set its own trade quotas. • 10: The UK loses control of its fishing rights • 11: The UK loses control of its oil and gas rights • 12: The UK loses control of its borders and enters the Schengen region by 2022 as clearly laid down in the Lisbon treaty • 13: The UK loses control of its planning legislation • 14: The UK loses control of its armed forces including its nuclear deterrent • 15: The UK loses full control of its taxation policy • 16: The UK loses the ability to create its own laws and to implement them • 17: The UK loses its standing in the Commonwealth • 18: The UK loses control of any provinces or affiliated nations e.g.; Falklands, Cayman Islands, Gibraltar etc • 19: The UK loses control of its judicial system • 20: The UK loses control of its international policy • 21: The UK loses full control of its national policy • 22: The UK loses its right to call itself a nation in its own right. • 23: The UK loses control of its space exploration program • 24: The UK loses control of its Aviation and Sea lane jurisdiction • 25: The UK loses its rebate in 2020 as laid down in the Lisbon treaty • 26: The UK’s contribution to the EU is set to increase by an average of 1.2bn pa and by 2.3bn pa by 2020 • • This is the future what the youths of today think we stole from them? • They should be on their knees thanking us for saving them from being turned into Orwellian automatons

  5. Find the picture of Theresa May, Angela Merkel and some other girl I can't remember, but has also become the leader of another Euro country. Funny how three schoolgirls ALL become leaders of their own countries.

    Sounds like a long term plan to me…

  6. I would rather be in the EU. I voted for remain after 18 month of research and questioning of the education they gave us about UK within the EU. I'm more protected as a UK born citizen.

  7. UPDATE: 12 March
    She lost, and miserably!!!! Now she needs to resign and let someone who has a brain and faith in Brexit to lead the Conservatives back to a place of trust with the peoples of the UK. Resign and elect Rees Mogg as PM. That is the only way to save the Conservatives.

  8. To 'LEAVERS': If you don't vote this deal, you'll not get 'NO DEAL' either. Half bread is better than none. Vote this deal & start the process of leaving otherwise you're helping 'REMAINERS'. You can't get all you want at once & you risk of not leaving all together. SELFISHNESS DESTROYS!

  9. The russian uncivilized trash are all over on these boards posing as BRITTS to sow discord amongst the British people , LEAVING THE EU IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SCUM PUTIN WANTS , BEWARE BRITISH PEOPLE !
