Boris Johnson


The former Mayor of London argued in his 2016 Telegraph column that there is an”insidious reason” the top one percent in the united kingdom love the EU.

He said:”The entire EU system of regulation is distant and opaque that they have the ability to use it to their own advantage, to maintain their oligarchic position and, by keeping out competition, to push their pay packets even higher. “

The MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip stated the weakest figures in the country can”fix a meeting” with the European Commissioner or meet them at Davos to address their personal grievances with certain issues.

He added that this is a privilege not granted to ordinary folks who own small businesses in the united kingdom, who have to follow EU regulations.

Mr Johnson continued:”Obviously, the FTSE100 fat cats will sign up for staying in the EU.”They are getting personally richer and richer – by manipulating EU regulation that only the large players can understand — while those at the bottom have seen a real terms drop in their wages.”It is one reason that the EU has such low creation, low productivity, and reduced growth.

The UK did in fact vote to leave the EU, and now three-and-a-half decades later, Mr Johnson is locked in tense trade negotiations and aiming to prevent the regulatory criteria he lambasted in 2016.Michel Barnier said last week in his plans for discussions that quota-free access to EU markets was dependent on the inclusion of”a mechanism to maintain the high standards we have on social, environmental, tax, and state aid matters today and in their future developments”.

He also said that if Mr Barnier thwarts his suggestion for a Canada-style free trade agreement, he could instead pursue a deal like Australia’s.

The Prime Minister added:”I have no doubt that in either case, the UK will prosper mightily”.The EU’s Chief Brexit Negotiator has tried to quell the disagreement, stating it isn’t”alignment” from the UK that Brussels wants, but”consistency.”

He said:”We’re not asking for alignment, I know that it’s a red rag to the UK, therefore I won’t really mention it.”What I am searching for is consistency.”Downing Street has remained firm, stating that whatever happens come December 31 2020, a new arrangement will be implemented whether with or without a deal.
