No Deal Brexit and the integrity of the UK

Is it any surprise that the Brexit negotiations have resolved themselves into a debate and a vote upon the integrity of the UK?

This is the essence of the No Deal debate over the next week in the House of Commons, beginning with the House of Commons vote tonight to try to hinder a No Deal Brexit

The EEC (European Economic Community) was about trade and business.

The EU was about political union and European citizenship.

The euro was an attempt to use currency to forge a unified political authority.

Brexit is about recovering political sovereignty.

The ‘backstop’ about Northern Ireland demanded by the EU in the Brexit deal interferes with the integrity of the UK, while the EU considers its ‘four freedoms’ to be essential and non-negotiable. The EU doctrine of freedom of movement of people, contrasted with freedom of movement of workers, essentially determines the borders of the EU and encroaches on UK sovereignty in Northern Ireland.

The EU’s ‘Brexit deal’ has resolved itself into the integrity of the UK, and it expects the UK to question and possibly to surrender its integrity.

The ‘No Deal’ option safeguards the integrity of the UK, but many MPs in the House of Commons are trying to stop the No Deal option using the scare tactics of the Remain campaign. Project Fear is an unworthy project obscuring from many people that such MPs are prepared to gamble with the integrity of the UK.

With friends like these, who needs enemies?

One thought on “No Deal Brexit and the integrity of the UK

    Well illuminated Donald, as soon as we can get out of this EU mess the better. Even when our Parliamentarians have thrown themselves on the “railway track” we still have the likes of Gina Millar & Co waiting at the buffers to prevent us leaving, probably using an ancient law from Magna Carta etc.
    Poorer countries in the EU are panicking at the prospect of missing out on the £39bn bonanza if we drop off the negotiating platform. In fact Poland & France are now joining the failed EU states {the PIGS} Portugal, Italy, Greece, Spain ~ all in need of money handouts.
    Another prospect we need to tackle is the £14bn annual giveaway to undeserving countries, especially when we need most of it to repair our own domestic situations, which the EU seems to ignore.
    Colin.
