Following the play by play in the Brexit negotiations is a bit like watching a game of table tennis. Follow along too closely and you’re likely to get a headache. And if anyone has a headache over the latest constitutional crisis, it’s Prime Minister Theresa May.
If UK Prime Minister Theresa May only had the wisdom to listen to US President Donald Trump’s advice, the Brexit negotiations would have been long over. The UK would be free of the EU’s control over its trade and immigration policies. And the world could move on.
Just two weeks from now, the Brexit process should have been done and dusted. But 29 March, the deadline for completing the UK’s divorce from the EU, will come and go with no action taken at all. Lots of talking, sure. But zero results.
Ever since the majority of Brits voted to part ways with the EU, vested interests — the deep state, if you will — are intent to derail the process and keep the UK as a vassal state to the European Union.
In a last-ditch effort to keep Brexit on track, British Prime Minister Theresa May sent her Attorney General Geoffrey Cox and Brexit Minister Stephen Barclay to Brussels to secure the changes needed to get her withdrawal deal approved.
You’re better off having no deal than a bad deal. And until you scrap the bad deals you’ve signed off on, you’ll never negotiate a better one.
According to Labour’s finance spokesperson John McDonnell, Theresa May is running down the clock on negotiations with less than a month until Britain’s due date to leave on 29 March.
May runs the risk of thrusting the fifth-largest economy in the world — into crisis. This has led many concerned MPs to threaten to take control of Brexit from the government over a string of votes on Wednesday.
Labour has said it will put forward an amendment — calling on the government to adopt its Brexit proposals, which would include a permanent customs union with the EU, and close alignment with the bloc’s single market — attempting to make the transition as soon as possible.
We admit we thought it would never happen. And it might not. But British Prime Minister Theresa May’s tenacity on Brexit negotiations — and renegotiations — with the EU and with her own parliament could just see Brexit go through after all. Maybe…
EU and British negotiators, still deadlocked on Brexit details, would do well to look towards Australia and the local wine industry lobbyists. They might even consider pouring a few glasses before returning to the negotiating table.
With May’s most recent loss in the Commons over her revised divorce deal, and a conglomerate of MPs who refuse to support a no-deal Brexit, it’s looking like the globalists may actually achieve what they’re after.
US President Donald Trump instantly saw Guaido as a fit leader for Venezuela, but EU members were hesitant to accept him due to his self-declaration as temporary leader. But now, eight European nations are backing the leader of the opposition-controlled National Assembly, accepting him wholeheartedly as Maduro’s successor.
RAW reports that the EU has rejected reopening talks on the so-called backstop, the insurance policy to keep an open border on the island of Ireland if Britain and the EU fail to reach a longer-term trade agreement before the end of a transition period.
Despite all these ‘hard no’ claims, there is still some room for slight negotiation. According to RAW, EU sources have said that additional clarifications, statements or assurances regarding the backstop may be added.
With her divorce deal being voted down in parliament a couple of weeks ago, May has struggled to make worthy changes to the withdrawal plan that will give it the support it needs.
British Prime Minister Theresa May is bracing for another crucial day of voting, as she seeks backing from her MPs over the Northern Irish backstop in her Brexit deal with Brussels. It seems May is sending the EU a message geared towards alternative arrangements.
With the debate in the UK reaching a fever pitch over the past few weeks, The Australian Tribune would like to underline why you should not listen to ‘Project Fear.’
After voting down Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit divorce deal in parliament last week, British MPs are now panicking at the prospect that such a move may have left them with the possibility of having to conduct a no-deal Brexit.
Today, it’s the confirmed knowledge that a no-deal Brexit, which grows more and more likely, will result in a ‘hard border’ between Southern Ireland — who are remaining part of the EU — and British-ruled Northern Ireland, who will leave as part of Brexit.
While the fate of Brexit hangs in the balance, that hasn’t stopped the UK from signing trade deals, readying for post-Brexit. New Zealand has joined Australia in signing a deal with Britain intended to soften the impact of Brexit on trade.
The 29 March due date looming over the UK as it gets closer to leaving Europe, the likelihood of a no-deal Brexit is increasing, as it seems to be the only way this political move can happen on time.
Theresa May is scheduled to present her plan B Brexit deal in a statement on Monday, London afternoon time. This has caused EU nations to hire thousands of workers and issue emergency decrees in preparation for a no-deal Brexit.
With both parties collectively holding 88% of the 650 seats in British parliament, failure for May and Corbyn to reach a compromise is sure to weigh heavily on the UK’s progress in leaving the EU.
After the crushing defeat of the Brexit deal to leave the EU, the UK may turn their backs on the democratic referendum that saw the majority wanting to leave the EU. Now, we could see another referendum take place.
UK Prime Minster Theresa May’s divorce deal suffered a crushing blow yesterday when it was voted down in parliament. With a 432–202 loss, Brexit is looking more and more unlikely.
With just over two months until the 29 March due date for the UK to leave the EU — which they’ve been a part of since 1973 — this loss is looking to shape one of the deepest political crises in the past 50 years, according to RAW.
Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson is sounding a warning that the embedded forces working to negate the people’s vote to leave the EU are dangerously close to destabilising the country.
US President Donald Trump has, more than once, labelled the FBI’s probe into possible collusion between himself and the Russians as a total ‘witch hunt’.
You’re likely familiar with the doomsday scenarios globalists have been painting for a no-deal Brexit. The imagined consequences are often based on loosely-defined circumstances. And they forecast calamities like grounded airlines and businesses all but shut down by the ensuing bureaucratic chaos.
