TRUCK OFF, MACRON: Stranded Brit truckers on the move again as shamed Emmanuel Macron is forced to reopen French border

STRANDED truckers were ready to roll again last night after shamed French leader Emmanuel Macron was forced to reopen his country’s border with the UK.

He caved in after pressure from Britain and the EU to end a 48-hour blockade imposed amid fears over the new Covid strain.

Thousands of truckers in Dover will have controversial rapid Covid test today after Macron gives way and says lorry drivers CAN now enter France if they have negative result – but freight backlog will take days to clear

The agreement requires every driver to have been tested for coronavirus, using controversial lateral flow tests, which are able to turn around results in under an hour but have had their effectiveness questioned.

Those who come back negative will be told by text message in as little as 20 minutes, and be given the green light to hit the road and head over to the continent, but positive cases will be sent to a hotel to isolate.

Prime Minister’s article in the Telegraph: 12 September 2020

We decided in the Withdrawal Agreement to create a Joint Committee, in which we would thrash out the details of these new arrangements. It is here that things risk coming unstuck. We are now hearing that unless we agree to the EU’s terms, the EU will use an extreme interpretation of the Northern Ireland protocol to impose a full-scale trade border down the Irish sea. We are being told that the EU will not only impose tariffs on goods moving from Great Britain to Northern Ireland, but that they might actually stop the transport of food products from GB to NI.

I have to say that we never seriously believed that the EU would be willing to use a Treaty, negotiated in good faith, to blockade one part of the UK, to cut it off; or that they would actually threaten to destroy the economic and territorial integrity of the UK. This was for the very good reason that any such barrier, any such tariffs or division would be completely contrary to the letter and the spirit of the Good Friday agreement. By actively undermining the Union of our country, such an interpretation would seriously endanger peace and stability in Northern Ireland. This interpretation cannot have been the real intention of those who framed the protocol (it certainly wasn’t ours) – and it is therefore vital that we close that option down.

May-Corbyn customs union is constitutional nonsense and a total victory for Brussels

So we lurch towards a permanent customs union and British infeudation as a non-voting member of the EU legal and regulatory system. This can end only in acrimony and years of bitter conflict with Europe.

Sooner or later an explosive issue will arise. It will become clear why a G7 industrial democracy with 65 million people cannot subcontract swaths of policy-making to a foreign power.

By allying with Corbyn, our kamikaze PM has declared war on her own party

Has it really come to this? Are we really stuck with a Tory Prime Minister who believes Jeremy Corbyn to be the country’s last hope of salvation? Is this just a nightmare from which we are all about to awake, or is Theresa May actually for real?

Hammond: Second Referendum is ‘Perfectly Credible Proposition’

This will go down like a cup of cold sick with Tories already incensed by Theresa May’s approach to Jeremy Corbyn. Both Steve Barclay and May herself refused to rule out second referendums yesterday, a Government source confirmed to Guido then that nothing was off the table besides a full-on revocation of Article 50. Brexiteers fear an even greater betrayal coming…

We’re not selling out! Cabinet Remainers pave the way for a soft Brexit deal with Corbyn as Hammond floats a second referendum and Cox defends customs union – but up to 15 MORE of May’s ministers could quit

Last night Mr Hammond risked a Tory backlash as he said a ‚confirmatory referendum‘ – on Mrs May’s deal versus Remain – was a ‚perfectly credible proposition.‘

And her Attorney General Geoffrey Cox has also made the case for a customs union compromise, insisting it was ’not some kind of sell-out‘.

Wow – interesting development. Philip Hammond just said there is a „credible case“ for a second referendum and it should be „tested in Parliament“. His rhetoric on a second referendum has been moving quite drastically in recent weeks:

Our unrepresentative democracy

The Brexit pile-up in parliament really is unlike anything we’ve witnessed in modern times. The government and MPs are refusing to implement the biggest democratic mandate in British political history, the clearest and most weighty demand ever issued to them by the public. And yet they are still straining to agree how best to bury it for good.

May prepared to rip apart Tory family and put Brexit in Labour’s hands

„It’s really kicking off,“ one Brexiteer told me in the aftermath of Mrs May’s statement.

„This cannot be allowed, that cabinet has to move against May. The 1922 [backbench committee] chairman [Sir Graham Brady] has to go and tell her she has to go.“

The Brexiteers can’t stage of a vote of confidence – she secured a year’s grace after winning the confidence vote last December, but they can try to destabilise her government.

She is likely to face an onslaught from Conservative Brexiteers at Prime Ministers Questions this afternoon after her controversial proposal to negotiate with the Labour leader.

All eyes on the ‚Furious Fourteen‘: May faces cabinet resignations as she shuns ‚clear majority‘ of ministers who backed No Deal and sets up Soft Brexit surrender talks with Jeremy Corbyn instead

– Theresa May made a dramatic shift as she promised new Brexit talks with Jeremy Corbyn to ‚break the logjam‘
– She said the Government wanted to strike a new deal on the final UK-EU deal both parties could live with
– If talks with Mr Corbyn fail then May promised to hand the decision to Parliament to find a way forward
– Warned there is no hope of changing the divorce treaty – a hint she is abandoning hard Brexiteers and the DUP
– Brexit Tories led by Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg exploded with rage at May’s apparent concessions
– May said she wants to persuade the EU to agree to the new timetable next week and leave the EU on May 22
– Brussels has been clear any delay longer than May 22 would require Britain to hold EU elections next month

How seven hours of rows and recrimination at Cabinet produced a surprising shift towards a soft Brexit

It was billed as the ultimate Brexit showdown and in the end the seven-hour marathon cabinet meeting ended in rows and recriminations after a cabinet majority for no deal was ignored in favour of a customs union consensus with Jeremy Corbyn.

The fact that the epic political pow wow started with a brief delay should have acted as an omen.

Revealed: the Cabinet bust-up over May’s soft Brexit plan

(2.4.2019) When Theresa May stood in 10 Downing Street earlier this evening and announced that she would try and break the Brexit logjam by liaising with Jeremy Corbyn, she gave the impression of speaking with Cabinet backing. However, the full story is now emerging. In a stormy seven-hour meeting, minister after minister protested at her proposal to use Labour votes for a softer Brexit ( potentially a customs union) in order to pass a deal. As many as 14 ministers said they’d rather keep no deal on the table. It seems that only about ten supported her final plan.

Remainers may want to keep us as close to the EU as possible, but here are ten reasons to break down the customs union wall

Since then, our Remainer-stuffed Parliament has pulled every trick in the book to keep us as close to the European Union as possible. And now MPs want Britain to stay inside the customs union, the EU’s most important legal construct, while claiming they “still respect the referendum result”.

This is abject nonsense. The customs union is enshrined in the 1957 Treaty of Rome, the EU’s legal bedrock. The EU is, in essence, the customs union.

Labour is about to tell the working class: your vote doesn’t count

The Labour Party is at the Rubicon. The first agenda item at the inaugural Labour Party conference of February 28, 1900, was “Object of conference: a resolution in favour of working-class opinion being represented in the House of Commons.”

Even in that first debate, the new leaders made clear that the appeal would need to be beyond the traditional working classes and should not be to encompass the concept of “class war”.

But it set up a political party whose reason for existence was entirely centred on giving voice and vote to working-class opinion.

Why the Internationalist Left Should Oppose the EU Customs Union

Labour’s position on the customs union is baffling. For the British left, supporting membership in the customs union is historically incongruous, morally aberrant, and logically inconsistent. Anti-racists, internationalists, and leftists should oppose EU customs union membership for Great Britain.
