Brexit: UK tells EU to renegotiate or face no deal






'EU leaders must give their chief negotiator the mandate to revise the UK's withdrawal agreement, otherwise a no-deal Brexit is "coming down the tracks", the Brexit secretary has said.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, Stephen Barclay said "political realities" had changed after May's European elections.

New MEPs were elected in 61% of seats, he said, marking a "fundamental shift".

He called on EU leaders to allow Michel Barnier to negotiate in a way that finds "common ground" with the UK.

Brussels has consistently insisted that the withdrawal agreement - one of two main elements of Theresa May's Brexit deal, which was resoundingly rejected by MPs - cannot be renegotiated.

Mr Barclay said Mr Barnier had told him in their discussion last week that he is bound by the instructions given to him by the European Commission and leaders of member states.

But the change in the EU Parliament means there is a need for the EU to alter its approach, Mr Barclay said.

"Mr Barnier needs to urge EU leaders to consider this if they too want an agreement, to enable him to negotiate in a way that finds common ground with the UK. Otherwise, no deal is coming down the tracks," he said.'

Green MP - all-female emergency cabinet to stop no-deal Brexit

Green MP Caroline Lucas calls for all-female emergency cabinet to stop no-deal Brexit






'Caroline Lucas has asked 10 female politicians from all parties to join her in forming an "emergency cabinet" in a bid to stop a no-deal Brexit.
Writing in the Guardian,

Ms Lucas, whose party wants another Brexit referendum, said the aim would be to force a no-confidence vote in Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

She would then hope to form a "national unity government".

This arrangement - when a group of MPs of multiple parties choose to work together and form a government - has not been seen since the Second World War.

'Women can cooperate'

In her Guardian comment piece, Ms Lucas - who used to be the Green Party leader - wrote: "We need an 'emergency cabinet' - not to fight a Brexit war but to work for reconciliation.

"And I believe this should be a cabinet of women.

"Why women? Because I believe women have shown they can bring a different perspective to crises, are able to reach out to those they disagree with and cooperate to find solutions."

Under her proposals, the national unity government would "press the pause button" and organise another referendum offering a choice between Remain or the government's Brexit plan, whether that is an agreed deal or no deal.

She added: "This is not an attempt to replace one coup with another.

"A small group of us should not be deciding on Britain's future and that is not what lies behind my initiative.

"But we need to find a way forward that allows the British people to decide which course they want to take."'

Brexit: Corbyn plans to call no-confidence vote to defeat no-deal - yet another 'radical' with more interest in power than principle






'Jeremy Corbyn has urged the leaders of the other opposition parties and Tory rebels to install him as caretaker PM in order to stop a no-deal Brexit.

If he wins a no-confidence vote in the government, the Labour leader plans to delay Brexit, call a snap election and campaign for another referendum.

Mr Corbyn outlined his plan in a letter, saying the caretaker government would be "strictly time-limited".

Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson dismissed the plans as "nonsense".

Downing Street said Mr Corbyn would "overrule the referendum and wreck the economy" if he became prime minister.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he wants a deal with the European Union, but insists the UK must leave the bloc by 31 October "do or die".

Mr Corbyn said he would seek to call a no-confidence vote at the "earliest opportunity when we can be confident of success".

To defeat the government he would have to secure the backing of a majority of MPs.

In his letter, Mr Corbyn wrote: "This government has no mandate for no-deal, and the 2016 EU referendum provided no mandate for no-deal.

"Following a successful vote of no confidence in the government, I would then, as Leader of the Opposition, seek the confidence of the House for a strictly time-limited temporary government with the aim of calling a general election, and securing the necessary extension of Article 50 to do so."

If he were to succeed in calling a general election - which would require the support of two-thirds of MPs - Labour would campaign for a second referendum with the option to remain in the EU, he said.'

Boris Johnson says Irish backstop must be dropped if UK is to leave EU with a deal






'Boris Johnson has written to the EU, saying that the Irish backstop must be dropped if a deal is to take place.

The letter comes just hours after <strong><a href="https://www.itv.com/news/2019-08-19/number-10-freedom-of-movement-will-end-on-october-31-if-there-is-no-brexit-deal/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Downing Street said freedom of movement between the UK and the EU will end[/url]</strong> on Brexit day, if Britain leaves the bloc with no-deal.

'However, following conversations between the Prime Minister and the Irish premier, free movement between the UK and Ireland will still continue.

In his letter to EU Council President Donald Tusk outlining his opposition to the Irish backstop element of the Withdrawal Agreement, Mr Johnson said his Government's "highest priority" remains to leave with a deal, but this could not happen if the backstop remained part of the Withdrawal Agreement.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en">— Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson Aug 19th 2019[/size][/quote]

He added: "It is anti-democratic and inconsistent with the sovereignty of the UK as a state.

"The backstop locks the UK, potentially indefinitely, into an international treaty which will bind us into a customs union and which applies large areas of single market legislation in Northern Ireland.

"The treaty provides no sovereign means of exiting unilaterally and affords the people of Northern Ireland no influence over the legislation which applies to them."

Mr Johnson said he is committed to ensuring there is no return to a hard border on the island of Ireland.

He proposed "flexible and creative solutions to the unique circumstances on the island of Ireland".

He added: "I propose that the backstop should be replaced with a commitment to put in place such arrangements as far as possible before the end of the transition period, as part of the future relationship.

"I also recognise that there will need to be a degree of confidence about what would happen if these arrangements were not all fully in place at the end of that period.

"We are ready to look constructively and flexibly at what commitments might help, consistent of course with the principles set out in this letter."

Mr Johnson acknowledged that "time is very short" but said: "The UK is ready to move quickly, and, given the degree of common ground already, I hope that the EU will be ready to do likewise."

EU may talk tough, but it needs Brexit deal as much as UK – Galloway on German leaks






'Both sides may try to seem tough ahead of Brexit talks, but the EU needs the deal as much as the UK, George Galloway said in reference to leaks claiming that Germany is reluctant to renegotiate an agreement with Britain.

An internal briefing paper for the government of Angela Merkel stated that Germany wasn’t going to accept Boris Johnson’s demand to drop the Irish backstop and prepared for a No Deal Brexit ahead, German paper Handelsblatt reported. This came as German finance minister Olaf Scholz was taking to UK Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid in Berlin on Friday.

But Galloway believes that the revelations were no reason to panic, as “everyone talks tough before they sit down at the negotiations table.”

“Of course, it’s possible that the EU will prefer what will be if not a cataclysm, certainly, but a very bumpy landing,” he said, referring to the No Deal possibility. But “there’s no reason” for Brussels and London to not to reach a mutually satisfying arrangement. Capitalism is the key factor here, according to Galloway.

Quote
The EU has a very substantial trade surplus with us. We buy far more from them than they buy from us, and business is business… The business interests in the EU definitely require a negotiated settlement.'

Brexit: Backstop indispensable, Macron tells Johnson






'Boris Johnson has met Emmanuel Macron in Paris for Brexit talks, with the French president saying the UK's vote to quit the EU must be respected.

But he added that the Ireland-Northern Ireland backstop plan was "indispensable" to preserving political stability and the single market.

The backstop, opposed by Mr Johnson, aims to prevent a hard border on the island of Ireland after Brexit.

Mr Johnson said that with "energy and creativity we can find a way forward".

On Wednesday German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the onus was on the UK to find a workable plan.

UK Prime Minister Mr Johnson insists the backstop must be ditched if a no-deal exit from the EU on 31 October is to be avoided.

He argues that it could leave the UK tied to the EU indefinitely, contrary to the result of the 2016 referendum, in which 52% of voters opted to leave.

But the EU has repeatedly said the withdrawal deal negotiated by former PM Theresa May, which includes the backstop, cannot be renegotiated.

However, it has previously said it would be willing to "improve" the political declaration - the document that sets out the UK's future relationship with the EU.'

Government asks Queen to suspend Parliament






'The government has asked the Queen to suspend Parliament just days after MPs return to work in September - and only a few weeks before the Brexit deadline.

Boris Johnson said a Queen's Speech would take place after the suspension, on 14 October, to outline his "very exciting agenda".

But it means MPs are unlikely to have time to pass laws to stop a no-deal Brexit on 31 October.

Tory backbencher Dominic Grieve called the move "an outrageous act".

He warned it could lead to a vote of no confidence in Mr Johnson, adding: "This government will come down."

But the prime minister said it was "completely untrue" to suggest the suspension was motivated by a desire to force through no deal.

He said he did not want to wait until after Brexit "before getting on with our plans to take this country forward", and insisted there would still be "ample time" for MPs to debate the UK's departure.

"We need new legislation. We've got to be bringing forward new and important bills and that's why we are going to have a Queen's Speech," he added.

The idea of shutting down Parliament - known as prorogation - has caused controversy, with critics saying it would stop MPs being able to play their democratic part in the Brexit process.

A number of high profile figures, including former Prime Minister John Major, have threatened to go to the courts to stop it, and a legal challenge led by the SNP's justice spokeswoman, Joanna Cherry, is already working its way through the Scottish courts.'

What happens next?

How Boris Johnson's suspension of Parliament could force Remain MPs to spring their plot to block No Deal or force an election next week... if they can get their act together

* Boris Johnson announced a 5 week suspension of Parliament from mid-September until October 14
* His Government insists that scheduling a Queen's Speech is a procedural step unrelated to the Brexit process
* But the PM's opponents say Number 10 is committing a 'constitutional outrage' by locking MPs out of Brexit

Britain's Brexit battle has come to a head once again with Boris Johnson's decision to suspend Parliament for five weeks starting on September 9.

This gives Remainer MPs just days to spring their plot to stop No Deal after Parliament returns on Tuesday, September 3. Their next chance will be on October 14, when Brexit day is just two weeks away.

Rebel and opposition MPs are trying to prevent a No Deal Brexit, either by legislating to delay Brexit or by bringing down the Government in a vote of no confidence.

But Boris Johnson wants to keep No Deal as an option, hoping the threat of it will pressure the EU into making a better deal with Britain.

If Mr Johnson's government loses a no confidence vote, there is a two week period where all parties can try to form a government that will win the support of a majority of MPs.

If no new government emerges, a General Election will be held, and whether Election day falls before or after October 31 will be crucial. If it is afterwards, the UK could leave the EU during the campaign, but this would most likely prompt legal challenges.

If a no-confidence vote is held at the beginning of next week, the Election would likely be before Brexit day. If it is later, there is more potential for it to fall afterwards.

Here, MailOnline explains what has happened and what could happen next.

I think we are now well "off script".

The plan to defeat Brexit has not materialized, despite 3 years.
Now this happens.

Rest assured, the Remainers will have some dig dastardly plan which will be either

* Smoke and mirrors of a court case, with bent europhille judge
* Catastrophic Event, maybe Boris will drop dead like Robin Cook, or John Smith
* Coalition of the EU Remainers will materialize, or rather the covert cover will be dropped.
* Riots, organized.

While we wait, we may as well speculate.

It is amusing to see the squeals of pain from the Remainers, as they are getting desperate.

However, even a rat is dangerous when cornered.
They will stop at NOTHING to stop Brexit.

Boris better wear a bullet proof vest, because ANYTHING is possible.

Boris' shock move unraveled EU unity, says Brussels insider - 'They are preparing to cave'






'Boris Johnson’s hardline tactics on Brexit appears to have paid off - after several senior figures in Brussels voiced panic about the looming prospect of a no deal. According to a Brussels insider, leading EU officials are growing concerned that Boris Johnson is serious about taking the UK out without a deal. Michael Peel, the diplomatic correspondent for the Financial Times, said the European Union could decide to meet the demands of Boris Johnson after Wednesday's announcement to suspend parliament.

Peel told the BBC’s Simon McCoy: “I think there are a lot of uncertainties in this.

“It is, as one official says, a chess game or high-stake poker game.

“It is certainly a possibility here and people are trying to work on what this means for that crucial meeting of EU leaders in mid-October.”

He suggested that the EU could be interested to making it seem as if Boris Johnson “had claimed a victory” over Brussels if that ensured a Brexit deal.

He claimed that figures in Brussels are increasingly concerned about the disruption of a no deal Brexit.

One EU diplomat told Peel that Boris Johnson’s prorogation move would raise the stakes even further for the summit of European leaders that follows the Queen’s Speech planned for 14th October.

The official said: "It’s definitely a domestic move first and foremost. But he’s playing two chess games simultaneously."

The diplomat said the announcement was part of a risky approach by Mr Johnson that might increase prospects for a deal – and would also spread the blame around in the case of a no deal.'

Jacob Rees-Mogg challenges 'teeth-gnashing' Remainer rabble to show 'courage and gumption'

'Change the government or change the law':
Jacob Rees-Mogg challenges 'teeth-gnashing' Remainer rabble to show 'courage and gumption' if they want to stop a No Deal Brexit after Boris Johnson's shock move to suspend Parliament


* Commons Leader tells Remainer MPs they have two ways of stopping No Deal
* He tells them they will need to pass anti-No Deal law or change the government
* Challenge comes after Boris Johnson stunned MPs by suspending Parliament
* MPs will be sent home for five weeks at some point in week beginning Sept 9
* Means MPs now have less time to stop UK leaving EU without a deal on Oct 31
* Government considering all sorts of ploys and devices to frustrate rebel efforts
* Meanwhile, Ruth Davidson, Scottish Tory leader, expected to quit this morning

By Jack Maidment, Deputy Political Editor For Mailonline
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7405931/Jacob-Rees-Mogg-challenges-Remainers-courage-want-stop-No-Deal-Brexit.html


Jacob Rees-Mogg has told Remain-backing MPs they have two ways of stopping a No Deal Brexit as he issued an extraordinary challenge in the wake of Boris Johnson's decision to suspend Parliament. The Commons Leader said Mr Johnson's political opponents could either try to pass a law to stop the UK leaving the EU without an agreement on October 31 or they could try to topple the government. He appeared to taunt Europhile MPs as he suggested they did not have the 'courage or the gumption' to act.

His comments are likely to pour fuel on the fire of what was already a volatile atmosphere in Westminster after MPs responded with widespread fury to Mr Johnson's plan to shut down Parliament for five weeks. The Prime Minister stunned the nation yesterday as he secured permission from the Queen to prorogue Parliament at some point in the week beginning September 9 until October 14. The move dramatically reduces the amount of time which MPs will have to try to stop a No Deal split when they return from their summer holidays next week.

They are expected to focus their efforts on trying to seize control of the Commons and pass a law which would force the PM to ask Brussels to delay Brexit if no agreement has been struck by the Halloween deadline. However, the government is believed to be considering all manner of devices and ploys to slow down the rebels and ensure that they run out of time. Downing Street appears to be increasingly confident that MPs will either run out of time or fail to unite in large enough numbers to succeed.

The ongoing fallout from Mr Johnson's big gamble continued today with Ruth Davidson, the leader of the Scottish Tories expected to resign, at least in part because of her opposition to the PM's Brexit stance. Mr Johnson has promised to take Britain out of the bloc on October 31 'do or die' and with or without a deal. His preference remains leaving with an agreement.

Brexit the battle of true versus fake democracy






NOW let’s try to get this one straight…

‘Pro-democracy’ protestors are currently attacking the Prime Minister because they think he is being ‘undemocratic’ in suspending a Parliament in which some political parties are threatening to band together to make it impossible for them to implement a ‘democratic’ decision made by the electorate.

Confused? You should be because that doesn’t make the slightest sense.

However what the latest and most crucial crisis point in the Brexit battle in which Boris Johnson has successfully sought permission to suspend Parliament does do is raise an all-important question: what is democracy?

Look up most definitions and it will refer to a system of government with elected representatives but that’s merely what is has evolved into over the years.

Democracy, in its purest form, literally means ‘rule by the people’ – and that’s the democracy that needs protecting and fighting for.

The other form, the right of a government to make decisions after listening to its MPs, is at best debatable and at worst completely illusory.

The problem the general population has here is our conditioning.

We are continually told we live in a country that is ‘free and democratic’. That’s correct except for two important points. We are certainly not ‘free’ and there is very little democracy in the way our system works in practice.

Most of us know that decisions and policies are formed by a very small caucus of people – some elected, others not – and largely rubber stamped by Parliament.

How many of today’s protestors stand up and voice their disgust when votes are frog marched through Parliament not based on a free discussion but instead by a three-line whip. In other words, you will agree with our policy or you are likely to lose your job.

This is not democracy, or rule by the majority of the people. It is strangulation of our collective will by the very few.

In reality, a Government is elected by a tiny minority of the electorate.

In a typical General Election, we are asked to vote for a local MP in our own constituency. Around a third of the electorate – wisely in my view – decide not to vote at all.

Then a further 60 per cent of those who do vote back candidates from parties other than the one destined to achieve the most seats and form a government. That’s a statistical fact.

Even many of the government’s votes are also wasted and meaningless. If you voted for a Conservative in a constituency that didn’t return a Tory MP in 2017, for example, you didn’t contribute to their overall victory.

That leaves, at a generous estimate, about 20 per cent of the electorate voting for an MP who is part of the ruling party.

And the notion that MP is in the House of Commons to represent you and I is beyond ridiculous.

Yes, they might well set out with the intention of supporting their constituents but that is only when your view coincides with the policy of their party unless, of course, they happen to be independent.

Many a would-be government policy is redefined after consulting with unelected civil servants who tell them what can or can’t be done in practice.

And that’s not to mention lobby groups, rich donors and other shadowy figures who all have an input.

Remember also that MPs swear on oath not primarily to serve the country and its people but The Queen – and that can be a significant conflict of interests.

In summary, there is very little that can be genuinely considered to be democratic in this convoluted process.

Instead I would argue that genuine democracy was exercised on June 23, 2016, the date of the historic referendum.

The electorate was asked a simple enough question. ‘Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?’

That was democracy in its literal sense. You and I had no binding obligation to vote either way or vote at all. We could choose to listen to the politicians, businesspeople and other VIPs giving their views or we could choose to ignore them.

It was made clear from well before the actual voting day that the ‘rule of the people’ would be carried into effect.

This was democracy. What has happened in Parliament during the three years since is nothing of the sort.

Yes, some blur the lines by saying voting to leave was to give sovereignty back to our own Parliament – but that’s another red herring, in my view.

Sovereignty and democracy belong not to Her Majesty’s Government but to the people!

In contrast to the current protests, we should be celebrating the demise of Parliament, its game play and all its stuff and nonsense.

Brexit is a battle for democracy. Either we leave the European Union or democracy in Britain is dead in the water.

'I'm ready': Nigel Farage says Brexit Party is prepared for any snap General Election called by Boris Johnson as he tells PM 'No Deal is the best deal' and it would be a 'historic mistake' to reheat Theresa May's Withdrawal Agreement






He also told the prime minister he would be making a 'historic mistake' by trying to get a rehashed version of Mrs May's Withdrawal Agreement - minus the backstop - through parliament.

Mr Farage accused the PM of not being committed to a No Deal Brexit and of trying to get a new deal with Brussels that is similar to Mrs May's deal, but with the Irish backstop condition removed.

Speaking on LBC Radio today, Mr Farage told his listeners his party was ready for a general election.

During his radio show Mr Farage said: 'The big message here is Boris Johnson wants the Withdrawal Agreement. He wants Mrs May's Withdrawal Agreement, but minus the backstop.

'And if he does get voted down in the House of Commons tomorrow, which I have to say, looking at the Tory rebels who are beginning to stand up, does look quite likely to me, then there will be a general election.

'Do I think it is acceptable that a general election could be held on the basis that he goes back to Brussels to get the Withdrawal Agreement? Well I absolutely don't.'

'Given there is less than 60 days to go to that right now, No Deal is the best deal.

Mr Johnson tonight threatened to call a snap General Election on October 14 if Remainer MPs vote to block No Deal tomorrow and vowed he would never agree a further Brexit delay with Brussels.

The Prime Minister stood in Downing Street and insisted he 'does not want' an election, but warned that rebels would 'chop the legs' from the Government's EU negotiations if they side with Jeremy Corbyn.'

May and Corbyn hid their true Brexit views, claims Tory MP

May and Corbyn hid their true Brexit views, claims Tory MP






ANDREW BRIDGEN says Brexit should ‘not have become a party-political issue’ and accused national leaders of hiding their real views.

The North West Leicestershire Brexit-supporting Tory MP told David Icke.com that neither former Prime Minister Theresa May nor current Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had told the public what they honestly think.

Bridgen, who voted three times against May’s flawed withdrawal bill, explained: “Mrs May is a Remainer but could not say so in her position.

“She voted Remain in the referendum and when asked privately what she thought either avoided the issue altogether or admitted she was in favour of Remain.

“As for Jeremy Corbyn, the sheer hypocrisy of the Labour Party never surprises me.

“He has spent his whole political life speaking in favour of leaving the European Union and I don’t believe he has changed his opinion.

“He has been manipulated both by people within his own party and his union paymasters.”

Bridgen admits that the public’s confidence in politicians has taken a hit as a result but is convinced current Prime Minister Boris Johnson is genuine in his declared ambition to get the UK out of the EU on October 31.

“I’m confident that he means what he says but we face a lot of opposition.

“The Remain Alliance will do everything it possibly can to stop Brexit and are helped by the speaker John Bercow who is having an absolute swansong.

“He knows he will be out at the next General Election and is getting more erratic and unpredictable by the day.”

Bridgen adds that the ‘relentless onslaught on the Government backed by the media’ is weakening its negotiating position with the European Union.

“If they think we are vulnerable, they have no reason to make any concessions.

“But I think the issue of whether we leave with or without a deal is exaggerated as are the reports of what might happen after October 31.

“There were 22 weeks of continual industrial action at French ports but no food or medicine shortage as a result.

“So there is no reason to expect that to happen.

“We will be in a good position to negotiate a ‘super Canada’ deal after we leave.”
