The latest EU-UK negotiations suggest the UK has stood its ground. Yet again the UK rejected the EU’s demands saying Britain wasn’t willing to “give up” the rights on our sovereignty and continued to decline Barnier’s orders of unfettered access into the UK’s fish-rich waters post Brexit.
The gap between the two sides is growing ever wider. Again the EU are pushing their failed demands of Unrestricted access into UK’s fishing waters, level playing field and who will govern the new deal.
Brussels have also demanded EU installations in Belfast, Northern Ireland which was asked for back in May claiming that it was due to Northern Ireland being a unique case. Again the UK has rejected this attempted power grab by the EU with Micheal Gove saying there’s no need for a “mini embassy”.
Gove’s comments got a reaction from Rotating Taoiseach, Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin saying Gove’s comments showed bad faith.
In May Mr Martin said: “The extraordinary position of London that no European Union office would be agreed for Belfast appears like a demonstration of bad faith concerning the operationalising of what has been agreed relating to Northern Ireland.
“It may be some form of negotiating tactic, the logic of which remains hidden.”
It continued: “nothing positive about London citing a concern with community divisions in Northern Ireland, which has not existed before”.
Finished by saying: “No one in Northern Ireland appears to object to the idea that there’ll be any European Union office in Belfast.”
From our point of view, It seems very clear that the EU is on extremely rocky ground with their various demands which all seem to circle an attempt to restrict and grab power from Britain before they leave at the end of this year.
All the EU continuously do is go round in circles projecting the UK isn’t putting effort into these negotiations when its the EU’s unwillingness to reconsider their own blatantly unfair demands which no country would ever sign up to.
With time running out for the EU and Britain defiant behind its logical demands, this can only end in two ways. EU concede on its none workable demands or the UK leaves without a deal.
