Former Brexit Party MEP exposes the true intentions of the EU – “ EU requires the UK to sacrifice its sovereignty to get a deal.”

With the seventh round of negotiations finishing yesterday, both sides released statements and held press conferences expressing a bleak outlook for a deal to be completed before the autumn deadline.

This morning it’s being reported that Boris needs to start playing hardball with the EU, especially after Boris said in the negotiating mandate back in February that negotiations would cease and preparations for a no-deal would begin if a deal wasn’t reached by 30th of June 2020. With that date come and gone, and no sign of the UK withdrawing from the talks as stated back in February, the EU have seen that as weakness from Britain.

Former Brexit Party MEP, Ben Habib, has come out strong against the continuation of the negotiation talks saying Boris is flogging a dead horse in trying to achieve an agreement from the EU. Mr Habib commented about the passing of the 30th June deadline date, saying: “That deadline came and went, but the UK did not do as it suggested it might.
“The EU, no doubt, saw this as weak. Notwithstanding the entirely reasonable demand of the UK to be sovereign, agreement of a trade deal with the EU has floundered on this point of principle.”
David Frost holding the ground for Britain.
In his piece, in the Telegraph newspaper Ben Habib said: “In his latest pronunciation, Michel Barnier has refused to continue discussing any aspects of a deal until the UK accepts continuity with EU state aid and its fisheries policy.
“In other words, the EU requires the UK to sacrifice its sovereignty to get a deal.”
“Faced with this latest egregious demand, it is imperative the UK now ceases discussions.
“Moreover, the Prime Minister was elected on a promise of taking back control of our laws, our borders, our cash and our fishing.
“It is time for him to show some real mettle and fulfil his promise by declaring in favour of no-deal.
“And, given the wholly unreasonable position taken by the EU, he should take the opportunity to repudiate the Withdrawal Agreement, which holds no benefit, only ills, for the UK.”
He added: “The vote for Brexit was a vote for the UK to regain its sovereignty – no ifs, no buts.
“That vote took place over four years ago. It is high time to enact it.”
Mark Littlewood, the director-general of the Institute for Economic Affairs think tank, told Express the UK needs to play “Hardball” saying: “The reason I say that is, in essence, the European Union’s only trade negotiation at the moment of any real importance is with the United Kingdom.


“We are now, at last, playing the multi-dimensional chess we should have been playing from the outset.
“We, at last, realise that if we make an agreement that shackles us to the EU, that makes trying to negotiate with the other countries, the 92 percent of human beings who don’t live in the EU, considerably more difficult.”


“I think this is where David Frost is in a strong position because you have got Liz Truss going around the world opening up new flanks.
“What Frost can say is look we want a decent trade with the EU, we want zero tariffs, we want no barriers, but it is not the be-all and end-all.”
Barnier doing his best to trap the UK into level playing field regulations

Yesterday Mr Barnier, in his usual style blamed Britain for the lack of progress, yet it’s the EU that are being the obstructive ones with their demands. Why would a country seeking its autonomy, and wanting to be sovereign without any interference from a third foreign entity, suddenly sign up to a level playing field which the EU is continuously pushing? Why would the UK give away control of its seas to a foreign entity? Barnier said he clearly understands this, then refuses to work with a new solution.

 

Barnier is doing what the EU does best, and that pushing its opponent into a pressure vice hoping they give up. The EU wants us to be in that vice, and they are doing their best to push propaganda, saying it’s Britains fault for the lack of progress. Barnier said: “This week, once again, as in the July round, the British negotiators have not shown any real willingness to move forward on issues of fundamental importance for the European Union.” Barnier states this, yet he and his demands are the obstacles.

  1. Should have walked away from talks in june , negociating with the EU is like flogging a dead horse..we’re just letting our nation and leaders look like imbasiles !! Its getting imbarrassing !!

  2. The EU is terrified that a full Brexit will trigger the beginning of the end for their project. They are desperate to cling on to any sort of hold over the UK by which they can maintain control and prevent a successful break. This is not the reclamation of sovereignty we voted for. Walk away.

  3. The EU know that the world and the rest of the EU countries are watching with avid interest. If the EU agreed to a good trade deal then that would send a message to other countries that it’s OK to leave the EU, so that is never going to happen. The only way the U.K. can win in this is to walk away and continue preparations for NO DEAL! The EU project is failing. The U.K. saw this and took swift action. We must remain strong!

  4. Time to just walk away and rip up the former agreement
    Pay them nothing and demand our share in the assets of the EU which the taxpayers of our country have paid for.
    WTO is the only way now to fulfill the Brexit promise by Boris

  5. We need to walk away NOW. The EU is not negotiating, it wants capitulation. We need to commence putting our house in order for NO DEAL.

  6. Walk away now, stop wasting the time of our MPs etc and get them to spend the time more productively on how the UK is going forwards without the interference of the EU! Just show them the hand, we are not talking to them anymore we dont need to!

  7. Walk away on WTO terms now, STOP PAYING THE EU NOW and stop this ridiculous transition, there was never a legal requirement to merely discuss trade tariffs. Under WTO rules, the EU has to continue to trade with the UK the same as it does now for up to 10 years until both parties agree to amend tariffs which can be done any time AFTER we have left completely.
