Last week, Sir Bill Cash was in Parliament speaking about how the EU contradicts itself in regards to its stance in these negotiations. The EU claims it accepts the UK wanting its independence from the bloc, yet the EU still wants to bind the hands of Britain, urging Boris to accept a system that caps the UK’s competitiveness as we leave the EU. Not only does this undermine the autonomy of Britain, but it means the UK would again be bound by EU rules in future trade deals.
During her visit, The First Scottish Minister was doing her best to describe Brexit as regretful, while pushing her concerns about a British exit from the EU. Nicola promoted the thought and agreed with the EU that an extension to the negotiations was inevitable.
- Yet again, EU Parliament President wants Britain to commit to their level playing field.
- UK invites Barnier to London to continue trade talks.
- BREAKING – TRADE NEGOTIATIONS CONTINUE WITH THE EU TOMORROW – FULL STATEMENT
- Estonian MEP congratulates Boris on outwitting the European Union in negotiations.
- German MEP slams Merkel and EU commission President over botched EU’s negotiation stance.
Mr Cash then slams the previous EU and UK administrations, saying: “This protocol was badly conceived by the previous administration and conceded including Concessions on EU jurisdiction”. Mr cash then takes aim at Junker, the previous president of the European Union commission, saying: “Juncker regarded Northern Ireland as the price the UK would have to pay for leaving the EU”.
The EU thought that the new administration under Boris Johnson would be a continuation of May. What Barnier didn’t factor into his plan, was the stern stance from the British. Did Barnier think the UK would roll over, yet again?. It looks like Barnier has met his match. A meeting is planned between the EU president and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson by the end of this month to summarise progress and work out a way forward.
