Brexit and our democratic responsibility, by Dave Chapman

Grateful thanks to the unknown creator of this splendid illustration

In view of the several prophetic words and visions since the Millennium about Great Britain leaving the European Union, I’ve been obliged to take notice of the political world much nearer to home than the Middle-East and USA. The EU Referendum increased that coverage and when compiling a data hub of the blog’s many postings at Brexit vs EU, to avoid anyone taking offence I prefaced it by clarifying my political stance, viz:  

‘Being politically non-partisan my main motivation is to follow the Lord and assist in bringing His Kingdom on earth. Noting prophetical words issued in Nov-Dec 2015 about the EU and specifically of coming international upheavals, I blogged on this topic as we approached the 2016 Referendum and especially for checking the accuracy of those words…’

‘Friends kindly offered their researches for publication, one of whom – Dave Chapman, author of EU’s Background & An Alternative, and more – received a letter from Nigel Farage about The Brexit Party. Dave offers the following opinion which is published with his kind permission:

BREXIT – OUR DEMOCRATIC RESPONSIBILITY

It is no secret that Ann and I have believed for a long time now that the UK should Leave the EU. We, like so many, thought that action would be secured following the Referendum result near three years ago now. It is still not the case, as Parliament has done its best to ‘kick it into the long grass’.

However, what fades with it is not just a personal view, or even the clear sense that to leave the EU is God’s purpose for us, but that Democracy itself – that is, that our individual vote matters and the result will be carried out by Parliament – is over.

Recent Parliamentary motions were won or lost in our Parliament by as little as one or two votes, and the decision was upheld. That is democracy in action. But the same principle has not been applied where our votes cast resulted in a clear victory for Leave in 2016!

The vote to Leave the EU, resulted in (as part of 100% of those who voted) a 51.89% to 48.11% majority to Leave. In terms of actual votes cast though, it was 17.4 million for Leave, and 16.1 million for Stay/Remain. There is a clear, quantitative difference of 8% between those figures – not a small margin at all.

How our Democracy evolved

A brief look at how Parliament evolved should be useful. First of all, the Magna Carta forced the infamous King John in 1215 to ask Parliament – then made up only of Lords and Nobles – for more money to fight his wars.   Simon de Montfort involved “ordinary” people, knights and land owners, not just the original nobility, by 1265 – they fought it out literally in those days!

With Scotland having its own Parliament around the same time, and Wales joining in under Henry VIII in 1542, Westminster strengthened its hand. Still though, arguments raged between who should Govern, the King or Parliament? This all came to a head when in the 1630’s King Charles I suspended Parliament for 11 years which led to the Civil War in England in 1642-1651. This resulted in the King’s execution and Cromwell, the General for the Parliamentarians, becoming Lord Protector after the final battle at Worcester between the King and the Parliamentarians in September 1651.

This war established the primacy of Parliament over the Nation’s Laws, so that the next King (Charles II) himself, when he finally returned from France, was firmly put in his place under the Laws of the land – that which the Magna Carta 400 years before had stated.

[By the way, two key yet-to-be Presidents of the United States of America, Adams and Jefferson, visited Worcester in 1786 and, astonished at there being no recognition of Worcester’s place as the final battle of the Civil War to secure the Nation’s privileged freedoms then enjoyed, declared:

“And do Englishmen so soon forget the ground where their liberty was fought for?   Tell your neighbours and your children that this is holy ground…… all England should come in pilgrimage to this hill once a year”.

A plaque by a Virginia Oak Tree on Fort Royal Hill in Worcester marks the spot. They recognised how vital a part the establishment of religious and democratic freedoms played in this Land.]

The slow march towards full democracy continued. Men owning a house in a City received the right to Vote in 1867 and then those in the countryside also in 1884. The rest of men over 21 had to wait until 1918 for the privilege. For women this was not gained until 1930. Finally it was in 1969 the voting age for all was reduced to 18.

What I have left out though are details of the massive civil arguments, marches and movements, over those years that secured this vital privilege we have enjoyed.

Our Response

Complacency on our part at this time will lose the meaningful value of a Vote. I reckon to have lived during one of the most privileged periods of time, and especially with regard to freedoms and liberties, probably ever, but that can soon be stolen from us if we do not stand up and be counted. For our Nation’s sake, and for the future of a democratic society that delivers on the will of the people, we need to act. We can still do so by means of the Ballot Box with the use of our current hard-won privilege, by taking part in upcoming European Parliamentary elections set for the 23rd May.

(It is worth noting the nature of the EU Parliament is very different to ours. Basically it acts to ‘rubber stamp’ Laws and Regulations introduced from EU Councils further up the power chain. It cannot enact Laws it chooses to introduce, so don’t be fooled by language we are familiar with here, but it does still need voices of liberty there).

I have never before been active on what may be deemed as a Political front, but this matter is greater than Party Politics. It is a matter of protecting and ensuring that the medium of Democracy continues to be the basis on which our Nation is Governed. Trust must exist between the Electorate and Parliament if our democracy is to hold good. At present that has broken down.

The Brexit Party have suddenly emerged as a vehicle to press home these key things. One, that we Leave the EU as instructed by us, the Electorate, securing the principle of our current Democracy, and two, that MP’s recognise they are employed by us, and so cease to do just what they prefer. They have to learn they are servants, and not masters. I hate to think where the alternative could go.

You must already be aware of a quote something like this but said many years ago “bad men need nothing more than that good men should look on, and do nothing” – J S Mills in 1867.

That’s exactly the challenge to us.

If you still doubt whether the Brexit Party can deliver what you could back at these Elections, I suggest you spend a little time to watch and hear Richard Tice (Entrepreneur and Chairman of Brexit Party), Anne Widdecombe (55 years in the Conservative Party and latterly of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ fame – in fired-up form indeed!), James Wells – previously Head of the Office of National Statistics UK until he resigned his most senior post last month – and of course Nigel Farage on this video:

Fulfilled Prophecy #13 cont’d: ‘most Europeans believe EU could disintegrate…’

The Telegraph’s Brussels Correspondent James Crisp writes:

‘Most Europeans believe that the EU could disintegrate in the next two decades, with three out of ten predicting war could break out on the continent, even though support for Brussels is at its highest for more than 25 years.

‘Three out of ten Europeans in the 14 countries surveyed in a poll commissioned by the European Council on Foreign Relations think-tank said that war between EU countries remained a “realistic possibility”.

‘The survey found that more than half of people in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria, Slovakia, Romania, Greece, the Czech Republic and Poland said the EU’s collapse was a “realistic possibility”.’

In my humble opinion, the speed at which The Shaking is accelerating then the EU may not have two years left, let alone 20, in view of the ferocious spiritual battle that’s well under way – and which will have only one winner!

Fulfilled Prophecy #10 cont’d – exposure of the EU’s evil

Three years ago this month a thought dropped into mind whilst I was taking a walk. I was only musing, or so I thought, but wanted to offer it to readers for consideration. So upon returning home I tried doing so, BUT my email got hit by a cyber-gremlin attack – this hindrance confirmed the Lord was behind that insight!  Thus, on 26th May 2016 I asked Is the Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? UK, USA – next EU??

Regular readers will recall that six months later that passing thought became fulfilled prophecy – and it’s since been repeated so many times I’ve been unable to report each instance. This blog’s Fulfilled Prophecies hub currently lists five examples, and Belgian video Brexit: Behind Closed Doors in my reblog of Comes the Hour, Comes the (New) Party makes the sixth for it specifically exposes the European Union’s evil heart!

Brexit Central publishes Mark Francois MP’s dununciation of EU based not only upon the video’s content but also upon his personal ministerial experience of working there (emphases mine):

‘How can it be, that our so-called ‘EU partners’ can treat our elected representatives – and by inference the British people – with such utter contempt?

‘Perhaps I can help offer an explanation, based on my experience as the Conservative Party’s Shadow Europe Minister between 2007 and 2010. In those three years, reporting to the then Shadow Foreign Secretary, William Hague, I spent a considerable amount of time travelling around the EU and interacting with those in the European institutions, such as the European Commission and the European Parliament. This taught me a number of things but, more than anything, it brought home to me that the desire to form a federal European state – often referred to by its advocates as “the Project” – is almost an act of religious faith among some politicians on the continent, such that absolutely nothing and no-one may be allowed to stand in its way.

‘For these people, such as President Macron of France but other European leaders too (and certainly the political elites in their countries), what the British did in voting to leave the European Union in 2016, was, therefore, simply unforgivable. We rejected “the Project” and thus committed an utterly heretical act. This was apostasy – and as such, in their view – we deserve everything we get.

This was absolutely plain for all to see from the sheer derision with which the British were treated throughout the two hours of footage. On one occasion – incredibly, bearing in mind he was on camera – one of Verhofstadt’s staffers, exclaimed on hearing that we had agreed to the 585-page so-called “Withdrawal Agreement”, that “We have made them a colony!”. The sheer joy that was evidenced on the faces of the European negotiators when it became apparent that we had acceded to the “Withdrawal Agreement” tells you everything you need to know about why they regarded it as a clear victory over Britain...’

Read Mark’s full article for why BBC4’s Brexit documentary should be compulsory viewing before voting in the European elections. He concludes,

‘Perhaps the best quote from the EU side, although admittedly it did not feature in the programme, was when the EU’s Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier said some months ago:

“I’ll have done my job if, in the end, the deal is so tough on the British that they would prefer to stay in the EU.”

‘In summary, for all our sakes, I would urge every MP and indeed everyone who is thinking of casting a vote in the European Elections on 23rd May (which I hope will be as many people as possible) to watch this programme before deciding how to cast their ballot.

‘The European elite have completely given themselves away – on camera – and proven once and for all via this programme that 17.4 million people were right all along.’

As blogged some time ago, I claimed exposure of what the EU is truly like should repel all right-thinking British citizens and make our ‘EU-Remainers’ rethink their opinion and attitude towards everyone who wants Britain to leave the EU free of all constraints.

NI-Eire Prophecy Update #11 – Ireland to follow Britain out of the EU?

Thank you to Hilary K for alerting me to Saturday’s Daily Express – click here to read full article:

Background:

These updates relate to the extensive prophetic word received by Emma Stark of the Glasgow Prophetic Centre whilst in Belfast at the end of February. She asked the Lord about Brexit, the Backstop and the Irish border and on where the solution lies. She was stunned to hear Him respond, “Emma, the solution is in Dublin.” Then He explained there’s a tangled ball of wool sitting in Dublin’s Parliament building and the end of that ball of wool is in the hands of Leo Varadkar, the Taoiseach, or PM of Ireland.”  This very significant word explains the necessity for leaders of north and south to work together in a new way to iron out issues that prevent Britain leaving the EU.

NI-Eire Prophecy Update #9: Irexit?

Nicholas at All Along The Watchtower reports upon developments since last October when I blogged about the Irish Freedom party and a possible connection to a dream about Irish resistance to German invaders:

‘Commenting on the foreign policy and constitutional decisions and preferences of another nation is often problematic (consider the anger felt by many UK citizens regarding President Obama’s comments about the Brexit referendum). Given the tempestuous history of relations between Ireland and Great Britain and then between the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom, I […] continue reading at Irexit?

NI-Eire Prophecy Update #8: Eire’s relationship with Ulster and the USA

A quick recap on the importance of these updates relating to Brexit and the ‘Backstop’ and the word received from the Lord by Emma Stark of the Glasgow Prophetic Centre whilst in Belfast at the end of February.

Emma asked about Brexit, the Backstop and the Irish border and on where the solution lies. She was stunned to hear the response, “Emma, the solution is in Dublin.”  Then the Lord explained there’s a tangled ball of wool sitting in Dublin’s Parliament building and the end of that ball of wool is in the hands of Leo Varadkar, the Taoiseach, or prime minister of Ireland.”  This most significant word explains the necessity for leaders of the north and south to work together in a new way to iron out issues preventing Brexit.

Once again for our information, our fellow watcher overseas, Roger Jervois, reports on what he’s seen in the Ulster press, as follows:

“Hi Richard, Here is more confirmation of thawing relations between the political leaders within Eire/NI (per Irish Premier Hails Centuries-old Friendship Between Ireland and US – 17 April)

“Leo Varadkar has hailed the country’s continuing relationship with “our friend” the US.

‘The Irish Premier was speaking as he hosted a reception at Dublin Castle attended by the United States House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi. Also attending were TDs, Senators, Garda Commissioner Drew Harris and Democratic Unionist leader Arlene Foster.

‘Mr Varadkar added that Ireland will do everything the country can to avoid a hard border.

He added: “Last week in Brussels we agreed to give the UK more time to ratify the Agreement and when that is done we look forward to securing a partnership with the UK. We want it to be as close as it can possibly be.”

I also note the article continues with the Taoiseach saying (emphasis mine),

“I know you (US) will be there as you always have in the past to help us build a better future. Irish men and women have helped make America great. Ireland has become a home from home for so many Americans.

We want Ireland to act as a political and economic bridge between the EU and the US. Given our shared language and history, it means the US and the EU can better relate to each other on a political level.”

Mr Varadkar added: “Today we are working to preserve all of that which has been achieved in the past and no matter what happens with Brexit, we will do everything we can to prevent the return of a hard border. In this we are backed by countries across the EU and indeed our friends in the United States.”

Today Roger writes, “And more statesmanship from God’s man of the hour in power” (per Nationalists in Northern Ireland Will Not Be Discriminated Against – 18 April):

‘In his annual address to Seanad Eireann – the upper house in Dublin – Mr Varadkar said: “The Withdrawal Agreement contains a commitment from the UK that Brexit will not result in any diminution of the rights, safeguards and equality of opportunity as set out in the Good Friday Agreement.

“I have discussed with Prime Minister (Theresa) May the responsibilities of the UK Government under the Good Friday Agreement, with or without a deal. 

“No matter what happens, there are a number of areas on which we can provide reassurance for Irish citizens living in Northern Ireland. Irish citizens in Northern Ireland will continue to be European citizens in all circumstances. They will continue to enjoy the right to travel and work and study freely throughout the EU, benefiting from the important rights not to be discriminated against on the grounds of nationality while doing so.”

‘…He thanked both houses of the Oireachtas legislature for showing “unity” in dealing with Brexit, particularly the Brexit Omnibus Bill which was passed last month.

“This landmark piece of legislation, crossing the remit of nine Government departments, focuses on protecting Irish citizens, assisting businesses and jobs, and securing ongoing access to essential services and products,” he added.

“Our work complements the steps under way at EU level to implement measures to mitigate the impact of a no-deal Brexit.”

To gain the full sense of these press reports please be sure to read both articles in full.

Clearly, he is approaching Brexit from a different stance, one unrelated to what 17.4 million Britons voted for – the separation of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland from rule by the European Union. Nevertheless, some sort of progress is under way, as indicated in what Emma Stark received from the Lord.

Moreover, I’m aware advances of a conciliatory spiritual nature between north and south Ireland are happening this week and we praise the Lord for what He’s doing therein.

Update on illegality of extending Article 50 for leaving E.U.

Courtesy of Prophetic Voice UK

Footnote 1 to UK Situation Summary #4 reads, ‘Democracy 17.4 supports English Democrats lawsuit against the PM to obtain a declaration in Law that the Law states the UK left the EU on 30th March 2019, and in blocking any extension to Article 50.’

One of few parliamentarians with a backbone for resolutely defending democracy, the chairman of the European Scrutiny Committee and former shadow Attorney General Sir Bill Cash MP, as a back-bencher in the Commons last week demanded Theresa May’s resignation of Prime Minister. After hours of discussions with QCs and former judges, Sir Bill believes the British Government’s extension of Article 50 is unlawful.

He writes in Theresa May’s Article 50 extension is illegal, and will be challenged in the courts (emphases mine):

It is a fundamental principle of UK constitutional law that the Government may not use its powers, including its powers to make international agreements, to frustrate the intention of Parliament. Parliament’s intention is to be found, and is only to be found, in the laws it makes. Resolutions of the House of Commons may sometimes be politically important, but they are of no legal effect unless an Act of Parliament expressly gives them legal effect.

The intention of Parliament is, and remains still, that the UK must leave the EU. This is clear from the legislation to trigger Article 50 (the EU Notification of Withdrawal Act 2017), in which Parliament referred to and declared “the United Kingdom’s intention to withdraw from the EU”. The EU Withdrawal Act 2018 gives effect to the decision to withdraw by repeatedly referring to “exit day”.

‘The Withdrawal Act expressly states: “The European Communities Act 1972 is repealed on exit day”. Parliament originally set that day precisely at March 29 2019, but the Government has purported to extend this by statutory instruments. These can be challenged in the courts.

It is essential to note that Parliament’s legal intention for the UK to leave the EU is not conditional upon a withdrawal agreement. While many MPs have said that they do not want the UK to leave without a withdrawal agreement, and the House of Commons has passed a resolution stating this, the law of the United Kingdom is not affected by their protestations. Our law is simply that the UK must leave the EU...

‘It follows that when the Prime Minister exercised her power to act for the UK at the EU Council, she was obliged under our law to refrain from doing anything that would frustrate the intention of Parliament that the UK must leave the EU with or without a withdrawal agreement.

These are only Sir Bill’s opening paragraphs but his strong argument is so important I recommend your reading in full by clicking here. He continues by cutting to the quick:

‘These are manifest limitations on the Prime Minister’s competence. They concern rules of UK internal constitutional law of fundamental importance. In these circumstances, I believe that it would be impossible for the Prime Minister, acting lawfully under UK law, to accept an extension of the kind proposed. When I called on her to resign last week in the House of Commons, I reminded her that she had promised over 100 times not to extend exit day.

‘For the Prime Minister to agree to such an extension in these circumstances is to knowingly use her power in a way that she herself believes would risk frustrating Parliament’s intention that the UK must leave the EU. This is legally beyond the pale!’

Sir Bill concludes his well-grounded case:

‘We have been told by the Prime Minister that “we will not have truly left the European Union if we are not in control of our own laws”. The repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 achieves that control as the law of the land. The Withdrawal Agreement drives a coach and horses through the constitutional status of Northern Ireland and undermines the repeal of that 1972 Act.

This is a political betrayal of the referendum vote in June 2016.That vote was expressly given by Parliament under the Referendum Act 2015 to the people and became the law of the land. It cannot be taken back by mere resolutions of the Commons nor by unlawful statutory instruments. Indeed, on Friday evening, five minutes before the deadline on the statutory instrument for the regulations to confer the extension to October 31, I tabled a block against the regulations which continues until the House returns.’

Unity News Network has been reporting extensively on the court case undertaken by Robin Tilbrook of The English Democrats over what he believes has been the illegal extension of Article. They write in Sir Bill Cash in STUNNING confirmation of Article 50 ILLEGALITY!!! that Mr Tilbrook and certain leading legal minds believe that Britain has, in law, already exited the EU on the 29th of March.

NI-Eire Prophecy Update #7: the Taoiseach and the EU

We continue updates since the exceptional, in-depth instruction about the leader of the DUP and the Irish Prime Minister that shocked Emma Stark upon asking God about the solution to the Brexit ‘backstop’ for Northern Ireland. (Re-reading the transcript gives an appreciation of what may be happening behind the scenes on the implementation of Brexit.)  So we report as follows:

5th April, DUP response to delaying Brexit beyond European elections an existential threat to Tories:

‘Arlene Foster, the DUP leader, said: “The United Kingdom fighting European elections almost three years after a clear majority voted to leave the EU sums up the disorganised and slapdash approach taken to negotiations by the Prime Minister.

7th April, anonymous reader’s link to Spectator article Ireland’s strange decision to join the French Commonwealth.

10th April, Roger Jervois in South Africa emails, “Here is some more constructive work from Leo…(speaking before last night’s crucial summit in Brussels)

‘The Taoiseach (Irish prime minister), Leo Varadkar, has suggested that the UK would be able to have a say in trade deals if it forms a customs union with the EU. A customs union is a major focus of Brexit talks between Labour and the Conservatives…Many Conservatives oppose that idea saying the UK would be subject to EU trade deals but with no say.

‘However, the Taoiseach suggested the EU would be able to develop a ‘sui generis’ (unique) arrangement for the UK, and said the proposal for the UK to stay in a customs union with the EU after Brexit has “real merit”.

“I believe as the EU having the UK in a customs union means we could get the best deals for all of us,” he said. “If the UK were to decide to stay in a customs union, we would be able to develop something ‘sui generis’ so that they would have a say around things in terms of future trade deals, and a level playing field around labour rights and environmental rights.”  (BBC News NI Brexit: Leo Varadkhar hints at UK say in future trade deals)

Today, Brexit latest news: Theresa May told to resign in Commons as Tory MPs brand Hallowe’en extension an ‘abject surrender’…at 1:38pm:

Arlene Foster: Six months to change the backstop

‘Asked whether she believed there was any prospect of the Withdrawal Agreement being reopened in the period to October, Mrs Foster told reporters in Brussels: “It depends whether they want to get a deal.

“If they want to get a deal they’re going to have to deal with the backstop because the only thing that has got through Parliament with the majority is the fact of dealing with the backstop.

“And if it’s dealt with in the appropriate fashion then the Withdrawal Agreement will go through and they will have a deal. But if they continue on the road of ‘we are not reopening the treaty’ then we are heading inexorably towards a no-deal scenario.

“That’s something which I really regret because we want to get a deal that is good for the whole of the UK.

“Instead of this intransigence, actually what they should be using the next number of months to do is look at ways to deal with that backstop.”

Addendum to ‘Divine Designs’ by Neil Mackereth

In UK Situation Summary #3 Neil Mackereth refers to the ‘Brexit problem’ and needing to continue earnest intercession, and refers to “an earlier paper” when stating the failure of the EU project is a real possibility and could well follow the pattern of the downfall of the former Soviet Union. We’ve been following indicators of that failure in many postings under Fulfilled Prophecy #13, based upon the word David Noakes received on the Lord bringing about the EU’s downfall (full text at UK/EU in/out #4).

For the purposes of this blog I’m appending Neil’s ‘earlier paper’ (written 2017-18) to Divine Designs, and which reads as follows:

EU and USSR

In both the former USSR and in the EU today, the central governments, initially credited with creating economic well-being, have found that they could not cope with the growing economic challenges.

The flaw in the USSR model was an inflexible, all-encompassing central bureaucracy.

In the EU, it is an unwieldy central monetary policy which, in effect, imposes a single interest rate on all countries and leads to an unmanageable imbalance between strong and weak economies. Furthermore, those countries that have embraced the Euro have lost the ability to control their financial destinies: they can no longer act independently to manage their economic challenges in a way that is specific to their individual needs.

Brexit threatens to precipitate the break-up of the EU. It is propelling the various anti-EU (nationalistic) political movements to renewed vigour. Hard-line Eurosceptic parties are making strong gains – what they thought improbable (leaving the EU) they now see as a distinct possibility.

Whatever people may say; Brexit is both a calamity for the EU and the worst predicament it has ever faced. 2018 will be a pivotal year.

Spiritual Implications

Notwithstanding the clear vote for UK to leave, we are in an interregnum, a time between membership of the EU and our return to independent nationhood. We know where we are going but we are not there yet.

What has happened? God is in the process of removing Great Britain from an unholy alliance and breaking the web of inappropriate soul-ties that have been insidiously constructed over the last 40 years.

The signs of demonic influence in the EU are startlingly obvious, to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. The EU is on a course to disaster and God is rescuing the UK to be a tower of strength, a light in a dark place, in the time of need that is fast approaching.

I am convinced that this series of unexpected outcomes clearly indicates that God’s hand is on Great Britain.’

Many thanks my friend. Let us not forget David Hathaway’s quoting a Ukrainian pastor as saying it was much better for them living under the communists than with the EU!!!

UK Situation Summary #4: post-Brexit trade with the United States + ‘remaining deception’

In view of Neil Mackereth’s references in Summary #3 and my appended comments with link on President Trump’s exceptional negotiating skills vis-a-vis Prime Minister May’s incompetent, utterly humiliating discussions and abject obeisance to the EU, I’m publishing this copy of Sir William Jaffray’s letter to Woody Johnson, the United States’ Ambassador to the UK, for my readers’ information:

Click image for link to website

Subject: For attention of Mr. Woody Johnson.

Dear Ambassador,

We understand the European Council will convene later today to decide if the EU is prepared to grant an extension of time for Brexit beyond this Friday, 12th, the so-called No-Deal WTO option. It is by no means clear that all 27 Eurozone states will agree to it, or, if they do, what conditions will be imposed by Brussels.

My purpose in writing is to respectfully request you to issue a further press statement tomorrow to remind everyone here that our Prime Minister’s Withdrawal Agreement prevents the US from entering into a trade agreement with the U.K. That not only will this be a very valuable opportunity lost, but that our existing trade surplus with the US will suffer damage as the U.K. becomes embroiled in US/EU tariff disputes. Aside from existing 10% tariffs on steel and aluminium, a £9 bn tariff on Airbus is mooted, and tariffs on British products such as salmon and cheese. President Trump is also considering a 25% tariff on EU automotive industry exports, which will arguably backwash onto motor factories operating here. All told, the damage to the British economy without a clean break from the EU is significant.

A bald statement setting out potential costs to the U.K. economy might give even the more ardent europhiles in our Parliament pause for thought in their ideological pursuit of adherence to the EU.

The British people voted to Leave the EU unconditionally in 2016. They expect a clean break WTO departure on Friday 12th April. They do not want to see our relationship with our greatest ally, America, trashed by rogue parliamentarians, who have voted contrary to the pledges they made to their constituents in the 2017 General Election.

It is ironic beyond belief that after failing to heed Benjamin Franklin’s cry of “No taxation without representation “ our Parliament should be repeating the same mistake in its dealings with the EU. But our Parliament does NOT represent the People, and we wish to see the special relationship with your great country preserved, not discarded like old clothes.

Yours sincerely,

Sir William Jaffray.

Further to my asking in “The EU cat is out of the bag!” if May-Merkel discussions could be the “one more deception to be revealed”, Democracy 17.4 calls upon MPs and Peers to demand a copy of ‘secret’ transcripts pertaining to them for urgent debate in both Houses of Parliament. Their update reads:‘There can be little doubt that the EU has dictated the Brexit agenda throughout…Prime Minister May met Chancellor Merkel on Monday 9th July 2018 to agree a strategy to tie the UK to the EU by keeping as many EU laws and institutions as possible, the upshot being the Chequers agreement. Merkel and May agreed that the only realistic future for the UK was within the EU. With that in mind, May acquiesced for the Agreement to be drafted in Berlin and sent to the Cabinet Office, marked ‘Secret’. Merkel also ensured that the private meeting with May was recorded (probably without the PM’s knowledge) and sent transcripts to the EU and key German embassies.’
