People in the UK are getting fed up with this so-called ‘Transition Deal’. Borders, law and sovereignty are very important to the British. MPs have rejected the petition backed by 138,107 people calling for immediate withdrawal from the EU, I mean why not? Who wants to wait years? The British people are ready to leave the authoritarian political club they call the European Union.
The public feel betrayed by Theresa May’s shamble of a deal that supports the continuation of freedom of movement, calls for ECJ rules and their superiority over British law and our territorial waters being usurped and our fishermen being stitched up for many years to come.
The petition, started by Brexiteer Jack Taylor was created in September and calls for the government to “walk away from the Article 50 negotiations and leave the EU immediately with no deal”.
The petition states: “The EU looks set to offer us a punishment deal out of spite. Why wait another 18 months when we could leave right away and fully take back control of our country, lawmaking powers and borders?”
Peter Grant the SNP Europe Spokesman belittled the people who signed the petition, stating: “I genuinely don’t understand what people who signed this petition think is going to happen if we were to leave tomorrow without a deal.”
Labour’s shadow minister for Exiting the EU, Jenny Chapman made the silly claim: “Nobody voted to be poorer, and to lose their job, for chaos, to be less safe – that is what would happen if we accepted as we are urged to do, the petition.”
The scary part is not one MP spoke in support of the petition, and according the BBC “most of the leading Eurosceptics from the Conservative benches did not attend”. How disgraceful is that? 17.4 million voted to leave the EU and none of our MPs are properly standing up for Brexit.
The UK government made long boring excuse of a reply that we all know could change at any given moment:
“In leaving the EU the Government will seek the best deal for the UK maximising the benefits from leaving the EU – control over our borders, laws and money – while maintaining the greatest possible access to EU markets and continuing to work with our European neighbours on common problems. After withdrawal, the UK will bring an end to the direct jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in the United Kingdom.
“The Prime Minister has been clear that the days of Britain making vast contributions to the European Union every year will end. The European Commission has set out the European Union’s position on the financial settlement, and the Government is undertaking a rigorous examination of the detail of this.
“The Government has already introduced legislation to ensure the UK exits the EU with certainty, continuity and control. A smooth and orderly exit is in the national interest and further legislation will be introduced to deliver that.”
The people of Britain, and especially the brexiteers are getting fed up of this long drawn out EU withdrawal date and the feeble effort from the Prime Minister to negotiate the UK getting control over it’s borders, law-making and fisheries.
