EU Parliament President threatens Britain of “serious consequences” if there is any attempt to undermined the Withdrawal agreement.

With it being confirmed on Sunday that the UK was going to be rewriting parts of the withdrawal agreement, the President of the European Parliament has come out in the last 24hrs saying if the UK alters the withdrawal agreement in any way, there will be “serious consequences”. This warning comes before the details of the new wording is released, which is set to be sometime later on today. The EU presidents full message said: “I am deeply concerned about the lack of progress in the withdrawal negotiation with the United Kingdom, whose sovereignty the European Union respects.”
Negotiation timetable.
“At the same time, we expect the UK to abide by our core principles which we have been clear and transparent from the start. We also expect the commitments it negotiated and signed last year to be respected, especially in relation to the rights of the citizens of Northern Ireland.” “Any attempt to undermine the agreement would naturally have serious consequences.”
Boris also released a statement saying that even a no deal is a great outcome for Britain in these negotiations. Boris wrote: “We are now entering the final phase of our negotiations with the EU.

The EU have been very clear about the timetable. I am too. There needs to be an agreement with our European friends by the time of the European Council on 15 October if it’s going to be in force by the end of the year. So there is no sense in thinking about timelines that go beyond that point. If we can’t agree by then, then I do not see that there will be a free trade agreement between us, and we should both accept that and move on.

We will then have a trading arrangement with the EU like Australia’s. I want to be absolutely clear that, as we have said right from the start, that would be a good outcome for the UK. As a Government we are preparing, at our borders and at our ports, to be ready for it. We will have full control over our laws, our rules, and our fishing waters. We will have the freedom to do trade deals with every country in the world. And we will prosper mightily as a result.

We will of course always be ready to talk to our EU friends even in these circumstances. We will be ready to find sensible accommodations on practical issues such as flights, lorry transport, or scientific cooperation, if the EU wants to do that. Our door will never be closed and we will trade as friends and partners – but without a free trade agreement.

There is still an agreement to be had. We will continue to work hard in September to achieve it. It is one based on our reasonable proposal for a standard free trade agreement like the one the EU has agreed with Canada and so many others. Even at this late stage, if the EU are ready to rethink their current positions and agree this I will be delighted. But we cannot and will not compromise on the fundamentals of what it means to be an independent country to get it. What’re your thoughts? Join the conversation below and have your say.
