Have the Krauts lost the plot or are they so Islamified momories of what happened the last two occasions they demanded surrender from Britain?
Britain's chief negotiator in the Brexit process to separate our sovereign nation from the EU's bureaucratic dicttorship, David Davis, addressing a German business conference, said that his government is pursuing a ‘No Change’ transition deal with the EU, and that Britain will remain "the same country it has always been" after Brexit. Top EU negotiators have opted for a position that would rewquire Britain to be subject to the authority of the Union while having none of the benefits of membership.
His speech, which also confirms that the Conservative government is seeking a so-called transition period of “about two years”, will come as a surprise to Leave voters who hoped Brexit could usher in radical change and reform before 2020.
The 68-year-old framed his remarks in terms of Britain not turning isolationist, stating: “I read [in the German press] that ‘Britain wants to isolate itself’, that we are ‘short-sighted islanders’ … Well, I’m afraid I have to disagree.
"We are the same country we have always been. With the same values and same principles we have always had. A country upon which our partners can rely." In fact it is the EU that is isolationist in spite of their professed support for globalism. The suffocating burden of EU bureaucracy make it almost impossible for many third world countries to do business with customers in the EU while compliance costs EU firms so much their products cannot compete in export markets.
Elaborating on the EU's (for EU reasd Germany and France,) controversial transition deal proposals, David said that the Tory government envisages it as a period in which Britain retains "both the rights of a European Union member and the obligations of one, such as the role of the European Court of Justice," and "staying in all the EU regulators and agencies" during that period.
This means the Tories plan on leaving Britain’s relationship with the bloc completely unchanged — except that it may lose its representation in the European Parliament — until at least 2021. The EU is still refusing to compromise on its demands that Britain's relationship with the EU will remain unchanged in perpetuity.
Top German MEP Hans-Olaf Henkel, himself a former head of the Federation of German Industries (BDI), said he believes that Berlin — like Michel Barnier and Guy Verhofstadt — wants "unconditional surrender" from Britain on everything from the ECJ to the divorce bill, and that this attitude may lead to talks collapsing.
The European Union (EU) believes that the best possible outcome of Brexit talks is a limited Canada-style trade deal with the UK, leaked documents from the Commission have revealed. Brussels officials believe the UK’s insistence on leaving the Single Market and European Court of Justice (ECJ) means that a deeper relationship cannot be achieved, contrary to the promises of British politicians.
The EU document, leaked to the Politico website, stated that "single market arrangements in certain areas" or the "evolution of our regulatory frameworks" could not be managed within EU law as it stood.
The UK would have to be satisfied with a "standard FTA (free trade agreement)", the paper adds.
Britain’s desire for “regulatory autonomy” and wish to be free of ECJ rulings mean it is “not compatible” as a partner within the EU framework, it is claimed. In other words the EU sees their desired outcome as Britain leaving the EU in name only but continuing to contribute financially and be subject to EU regulatory authority. NO DEAL then.
