BRITAIN has bowed to pressure from the European Union by agreeing that Phase 1 of the Brexit deal will be put into law after a furious intervention by Guy Verhofstadt.
In an extraordinary U-turn, Brexit Secretary David Davis confirmed he has spoken to Berlin MEP Mr Verhofstadt and the pair have agreed to work together to agree that they will convert the joint report into legal text.
This was probably agreed last Friday but as a show May and Davis were allowed to look like being strong.
No one in their right mind would trust anyone involved with the EU after we have been shafted for decades, mainly due to the absolute dunces in Whitehall and Westminster.
These are not negotiations they are demands by the EU mafia and May is complying with every EU demand
We are going to be legally held to our commitments in Phase One, regardless of anything that is agreed in Phase Two. Theresa May is suggesting we can do some kind of ‘bait and switch’ and take everything off the table if we don’t like the deal. That doesn’t appear to be the EU’s understanding.
What a mess! On our side, we are making significant commitments, before we have started to even talk about what we might be getting in return. And the EU is losing trust in us (not that they had much in the first place) because they think we are not making offers in good faith.
Why not just walk away, trade on WTO terms and come to a mutually-beneficial agreement in the fullness of time. This approach just isn’t working, for either side.
