Theresa May Touts “Secret” Brexit Deal With EU – Instantly Blocked By DUP


Picture source: AFP / Getty

A report in the Sunday Times is accurate, May has assembled a detailed “secret” Brexit plan that, among other details, would kill off the controversial Northern Ireland “backstop” that had become the main obstacle to further negotiations.

Working in secret, May has reportedly developed a detailed, 50-page plan for a Brexit treaty that will allow the entire UK to remain within the EU customs union – that is, until a final deal can be hammered out during the transitionary period, which Brexiteers fear could mean “forever”.

As part of the new “secret” deal, May has effectively scrapped most of her controversial four-page “Chequers plan”, and replaced most provisions governing the single market and customs union with an agreement to hash out a “Future Economic Partnership” – essentially an open-ended agreement to continue negotiations that leaves open the possibility of reaching a free trade deal like the one enjoyed by Canada, a provision that is bound to appease at least some of the Brexiteers.

However, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) a Brexit-supporting Northern Irish party currently propping up Theresa May’s minority government has rejected concessions to the European Union (EU) which could have left Britisg citizens in the province subject to EU judges for years.

The Prime Minister had reportedly persuaded EU bosses to drop their insistence on splitting up the United Kingdom and separating Northern Ireland from the rest of Britain’s Home Nations with customs checks in a so-called “customs compromise”.

Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionists Party (DUP) had threatened to vote down the budget if the UK was divided in this way. Mrs May proposed to keep the entire UK tied to the EU’s Customs Union as a compromise, while Brussels was pressing for Northern Ireland to be subject to Single Market regulations as well.

Throwing this “compromise” out, the DUP’s Westminster leader Nigel Dodds said: “If Northern Ireland is subject to EU Single Market regulations, then it will also be subject to the European Court of Justice in some form as the arbiter of those regulations.

“This position leaves Northern Ireland a rule taker from Brussels. We’re confident we can get a good deal, good for all four corners of the United Kingdom.”

May has been despoerately trying to keep Britain tied to the EU by stealth ever since the process began, though she never committed herself in the brexit campaign, (she’s always been the kind of politicians that in public goes the way the wind is blowing, has revealed by her actions she is privately a rabid remainer and a globalist.

Drunkard Juncker says EU Cannot Survive Without Italy<

 

Is the EU planning to pick a fight with the olive oil business

Ignoring warnings from the European Commission, the ECB and the European Commission (as well as practically every other supranational organization in Europe), the populist-led Italian government managed to submit their draft budget to the Commission before a midnight deadline – an outcome that was cheered by BTP traders, who bought back into Italian bonds, once again compressing the spread to bunds, which has blown out in recent months.

But rather than representing a deescalation of tensions between Italy and Brussels, the game of fiscal chicken in which both sides are presently engaged is instead entering its most acute phase, as Brussels now has two weeks to review the budget proposal before it can either accept the plan, or send it back with requests for revisions. And anybody who has been paying even passing attention to the populist government’s denigration of EU budgetary guidelines over the past few months should already understand that Brussels won’t just sit back and accept the budget for what it is.

In fact, European Commissioner Jean-Claude Juncker hinted as much Tuesday morning when he told Italian reporters that accepting the budget would be tantamount to inviting an widespread revolt against the EU, per Italian newswire ANSA and the FT. Juncker also blasted Italy for abandoning the fiscal commitments it made when it joined the EU. However, though they have wavered from time to time, the Italians haven’t kept their intentions to press for a budget deficit equivalent to 2.4% of GDP a secret. Even Giovanni Tria, Italy’s economy minister, defended the draft budget, saying the deficit “would be considered normal in all Western democracies, not explosive.”

Undeterred by the fact that there’s absolutely no political will in the Italian government to back down from their budget stance, despite threats from the ECB to provoke a Greece-style banking crisis if the Italians don’t yield to EU rules.

Brexit has terrified ‘Brussels bubble’ – German insider

German Political Journalist Tanit Koch

The EU elite “lost faith in their own appeal and abilities” following the Brexit referendum vote and the surge in support for nationalist parties. The knee jerk response of the Brussels bubble was to try (and fail) to punish Britain for defing Brussels in the same way as they had punished small nations like Greece, Portugal and Ireland, which in their perception was the only way to prevent the EU breaking apart.

Top bureaucrats in Brussels are terrified at the prospect of the European Union breaking apart, according to a European expert. The fragility of the EU bloc since the financial crisis of 2008 is behind the punishment tactics and intransigence of negogiator Michel Barnier and other EU leaders.

Tanit Koch, now of the Transatlantic Commission on Election Integrity” (TCEI) who previously worked as editor of German magazine Bild, said that the Brexit referendum result shocked the Brussels leadership, who did not have a clue how to respond. Her comments come less than two weeks before the major EU summit this month, at which the direction of Brexit and the future of the EU could be decided.

Koch told BBC’s The World This Weekend: “In the last two years, within Europe, especially within the Brussels bubble, they have lost faith in their own appeals and their own abilities.

“They are desperate for the European Union not to implode or break apart.

“It is not so much about punishing Britain as many in this country suggest.

“It is an honest fear that if a precedent is set, that someone who leaves gets a better deal, others will follow suit.”

Koch also revealed the extent to which EU federalisation dogma has taken hold among the top rank in the business world across Europe. She spoke of a recent meeting between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and prominent German business leaders on Brexit. When Mrs Merkel insisted that the sngle market would not be compromised, raising the prospect of a no deal, the business leaders cheered.

She claimed that support of the “EU’s holy grail” meant more to the German CEOs than the huge expected hit to their businesses. The Daily Stirrer finds this a little far fetched as we know from our own sources that many German firms have lobbied for Merkel to support a reasonable deal for Britain.

Despite the apparent deadlock in recent months, a change of tone has emerged in the last week among EU leaders, after long months of them insisting none of their conditions was negotiable. Yesterday, European Council President Donald Tusk said he was confident that the EU and UK would secure a deal by the end of the year.

MEP Stephen Woolfe, a prominent figure in the UKIP campaign team during the referendum run up has claimed the European Union needs to “learn about democracy” in cos he mademment on Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt’s remarks comparing the European Union to the Soviet Union.

Woolfe claimed the Foreign Secretary’s remarks were a “strong message” to the European Union who “have to learn about democracy”. Speaking on Euronews’ Raw Politics, the British MEP criticised the European Union’s track record for “forcing” countries (including France, The Netherlands, Ireland and Greece,) to vote   again if a vote does not give the result Brussels wants.

He said: “It was also a very strong message you have to learn about democracy. Either, if you carry on that way, you could be seen by people to be like that and the European Union has always championed the idea of being free.”

He then reminded top EU officials including European Commission  president Jean Claude Juncker, “You forced a referendum in France, you forced a referendum again in Holland, and you made the Irish vote again to kind of join on a European constitution.

“What we are saying is you don’t allow democracy when you don’t like it, isn’t that like those who are overridingly powerful, the elites telling us what to do? That is the kind of strong message he is sending out.”

Following the Salzburg summit, Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat claimed there is an “almost unanimous” backing among leaders for Britain to have a second referendum.

In spite of the total irrelevance of his opinion, Muscat added: “There is a unanimous, or almost unanimous I would say right now, point of view around the table that we would like the almost impossible to happen, that the UK has another referendum.”

Prime Minister has repeatedly said the UK will not have another vote on leaving the European Union.

 

 

This Man Encapsulates What’s Wrong With The EU.

 

Selmayr’s  dogmatic attachment to European unity is matched by his bullying arrogance (Image: GETTY•EPA)

Our economic future has dominated the turbulent debate over Brexit in recent weeks. Yet British withdrawal from the EU is not primarily about economics. Many people on the Remain side of the Brexit debate have never understood that many Brexit supporters were driven by the desire for national independence and democracy, those noble ideals that have inspired freedom movements throughout history.

If ever the British people want a reminder of the need to break free from the EU’s authoritarian, quasi-imperialist rule, then the case of the European Commission’s sinister secretary-general Martin Selmayr (reported here earlier in the year,) provides one.

Selmayr,  a ruthless German bureaucrat and lawyer who has worked for the European Commission since 2004, embodies all the EU bureaucratic dictatorship’s authoritarian impulses, anti-British sentiments and ideological fervour for the integration of twenty seven sovereign nations into a single, political unit ruled from Brussels by unelected bureaucrats.

Selmayr been dubbed “the Rasputin of Brussels” with good reason. Like Grigori Raputin, the peasant – born, self proclaimed mystic and holy man who befriended the family of Russia’s Czar in the late nineteenth century and whose malign influence did a lot to exacerbate anti – royalist feelings and drive people to support the communists, Selmayr’s fierce personal loyalty to the reputedly alcoholic EU Commission president Jean Claude Juncker, dogmatic attachment to the ideal of European political unity (federalism) and bullying arrogance have prompted complaints about the “poisonous” atmosphere he creates.

“What is the difference between God and Selmayr?” the long serving German politician Wolfgang Schauble once asked: “God knows he’s not Selmayr.”

The Rasputin of Brussels has developed a fearsome reputation in the  EU organisation, despite remaining relatively unknown to the public. His authoritarian tenure as Juncker’s chief of staff  earned him a variety of nicknames in addition to Rasputin, Darth Vader, Himmler, the Monster of the Berlaymont, and Pit Bull.

But his brutal style of running Juncker’s office –  demanding that access to Mr Juncker for even the most senior EU officials was first channeled through him, has also led to a queue of enemies. Former European Commission vice president Kristalina Georgieva blamed her resignation on his aggressive style, which she branded ‘poisonous’.

British officials have accused Mr Selmayr, who has privately expressed his dislike of Brexit, of ‘hating’ the UK while describing him as a ‘psychopath’.

But nothing highlights Selmayr’s corrupting influence more than the underhanded way he was rocketed into the role of secretary general by his mentor, Jean Claude Juncker, the Luxembourgois drunk who has vowed to punish Britain for voting to leave. In February this year. he was the chief aide to the EU’s bibulous president, lacking the experience and the qualifications to run the Commission’s 33,000-strong workforce. Operation Night and Fog” a German Green Party European Palrliament called it

Because of his commitment to their cause of creating a single state, the Euronazis, headed by Juncker, were determined to put him in charge of E U administrative functions. So in blatant stitch-up, defying any concept of openness, he was catapulted into the top job.

Confirmation that Selmayr’s dramatic rise was effectively an internal coup by supporters of the federal European superstate project came this week in a scathing report by the EU Ombudsman Emily O’Reilly. Having conducted an extensive investigation into the bizarre events surrounding Selmayr’s rapid rise through the ranks, Ms O’Reilly reported that both “the spirit and the letter” of EU law had been broken by the Commission, whose conduct had been “extraordinary” in failing to challenge the abuse of procedures.

Anyone who has studied the Selmayr promotion fix (link to our report provided for people who missed the story,) would have come to the same conclusion as Ms O’Reilly. the whole business was a grotesque charade which exposes the rottenness at the core of the EU.

Over the space of a few minutes in February this year, Selmayr was shifted from his post as EU Commission Predident Juncker’s chief aide to the position of deputy secretary general on Juncker’s recommendation, thus putting him in the position of principal candidate for the top job. should it become vacant with, mysteriously it did almost instantly.

Moments after Selmayr’s promotion (which borke EU rules because all job vacances should be advertised and applications invited,) the incumbent EU secretary general, Alexander Italianer announced his retirement. At Juncker’s behest, Selmayr was immediately appointed  by the commissioners as Italianer’s replacement, though, again in line with EU rules, the vacancy should have been advertised and a proper selection process instigated.

Even within the Brussels organisation, usually so compliant with the Commission’s megalomania, there was outrage at this cynical manoeuvre. One German MEP, Werner Langen, denounced the move as “anything but transparent. It reminds us of 19th century secret bureaucracy.”

But even after the damning Ombudsman’s report published this weekt, it is unlikely that anything will change. Unassailable in his position with the protection of Juncker whose anointed heir Selmayr must now be, and other Brussels federalists, Selmayr will continue to exercise near total control over the EU’s officialdom because, more than any other figure in Brussels, he promises to fulfil the federalist agenda.

Since he first joined the EU as a press officer, aged 34, he has shown the dedication of a zealot to the goal of the creating a politically united European superstate.

Having conducted an in depth investigation, Ms O’Reilly said that both “the spirit and the letter of EU law had been broken by the Commission, the conduct of which had been extraordinary in failing to challenge the abuse of procedures.”

In the UK, where mainstream media is dominated by people who supported our remainingt any price, even the surrender of our national sovereignty to unelected bureaucrats in  EU headquarters the subject seems to be getting very little attention. Nothing to see here! Small administrative matter! Just a civil servant! Look, over here, more silliness from the ridiculous Brits on the Irish border, far right extremists are gaing ground in Germany, Italy and Sweden and those whining Jewish bigots are complaining about Muslims torching their synagogues.

I and other Brexit supporters have been called a fascist, xenophobe and racist for my well informed decision to vote in support of Britain’s leaving the EU, which only demonstrates that our critics don’t know what any of those words mean. What kind of organisation indulges in this sort of stitch up at the behest of Juncker to set things up for his ghastly sidekick, Selmayr, to be the boss of thousands of officials, extending his pal’s power? An organisation worth leaving, that’s what.

And what kind of people would want their country to be part of such an organisation? Not the kind I’d want to have a drink with for sure. But as if the stitch up was not enough, it gets worse: Though the EU’s recreation of Kristallnacht took place in February, the story was only broken (by Politico) in March and details were still emerging in August

The reporter who has made the running, breaking a series of revelations and allegations, is Jean Quatremer, EU correspondent of the French newspaper Libération.It’s getting worse by the day. Politico has a report of the insurrectionist press conference held yesterday in Brussels, in which the spokesman Schinas came under unprecedented pressure.

While Europhiles will dismiss the affair as a trivial administrative matter and certain European leaders will probably declare that ‘the little people’ are not intelligent enough to understand the complexities of running an organisation like the EU, transparency matters on a practical as well as an ethical level. The European Commission, already emired in Brexit negotiations, is also in conflict with states such as Italy, Poland, Austria and Hungary over their alleged breaches of EU rules. Why should any of those states that have shown their willingness to assert their sovereignty listen to the Commission now its corrupt and secretive modus operandi has been exposed?

All this runs contrary to the prevailing narrative in the London political establishment and UK media, that a brilliantly organised, sophisticated and united EU makes the British negotiating team look like characters from a Monty Python’s Flying Circus sketch. In fact I nave known since working for the EU in Luxembourg thirty years ago it was more like an old Three Stooges film.

 

The EU’s no-deal Brexit plan show Brussels’ bluster is phoney

brexit threats

For all the EU’s threats, promises that Britain would be punished for leaving, and predictions that we could not survive as a nation outside the bureaucratic dictarorship of Brussels, it has emerged the pen pushers are more fightened of Brexit than the majority of British voters who voted to leave. A source within the European Commission told The Sun that EU plans for a No Deal exit exist, but claimed they are being kept secret to increase the pressure on the UK to accept a soft Brexit deal.

According to the source: “The EU doesn’t want 20 mile tailbacks [at border crossings] as much as the UK doesn’t. The thinking is we’ll keep things as they are because the regulatory platform is the same.n This will stay in place for a few months and then there’ll be a mad dash to get a new agreement in place.”

This probably means that the EU and UK would continue to recognise each other’s regulatory standards for a time, as it was unlikely that a divorce deal cabable of being ratified by all 27 remaining member states could have ben completed even if serious negotiations had begun the day after the referendum. It could also see EU-UK borders kept open to all but the most high-risk goods to reduce the chances of huge queues developing at customs points.

This contradicts the EU’s public no-deal plans, which are significantly more stringent. They include goods being checked for: “Customs, sanitary and phytosanitary standards and verification of compliance with EU norms”. The official plans predict UK-EU trade would be “severely impacted” by a no-deal Brexit and suggest there would be “significant delays” at the borders. Brussels has come under pressure from the more economically powerful members to remove such obstacles.

Earlier this week Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab released a series of Government papers setting out “practical and proportional” advice in case Brexit happens without an exit deal.According to these papers the UK will automatically recognise European drug and medical standards to avoid delays.

MERKEL CLINGS ON: German refugee deal with Greece saves Chancellor’s Job

German Chancellor ANGELA MERKEL, whose leadership has been in deep trouble since the inconclusive election in September 2017, is continuing to cling onto her job as the fragile coalition she formed staggers from crisis to crisis. In the latest, a last minute deal with Greece that will see Germany send back migrants to Greece if they have already applied for asylum there allowed Merkel to escape a no confidence vote that could have forced her to resign.

The beleagured  Chancellor told a news conference today: “It’s good that we have got a result,” but Merkel’s Interior Ministry spokeswoman Eleonore Peterman added that she would not be able to reveal any details before the deal was formally signed.

Last week, the Ms Merkel struck a similar agreement on returning migrants to Spain, confirming a deal reached in June when her increasingly divided Government accepted it would take back asylum seekers whose “first entry into the European Union was Spain”.

The Greek deal would affect migrants entering via Germany’s border with Austria, enabling it to send the migrants back to the Mediterranean country within 48 hours.

The German government is also in “very advanced” negotiations on a similar deal with the Italian Government, and fully expects an agreement to be struck in the near future according to Peterman.

Last week, the Interior Ministry spokeswoman said last week that both Italy and Greece had made counter-demands on any deals agreed after announcing the breakthrough with Spain.

A pact with Italy would provide the biggest breakthrough yet in Angela Merkel‘s struggle to get a stranglehold on a migrant crisis that once again threatens to tighten its grip on Europe again.

The Italians are likely to be the fly in the ointment, having been at loggerheads with Brussels and several European allies including France, after refusing to take in thousands of migrants rescued at sea while demanding that others take them instead.
