Not only did he double down on his foul Holocaust relativism by continuing to compare the present political situation with the most criminal political regime in human history – he pushed it even further by saying his comparison of the ERG to the Nazis was ‘not strong enough’.
Not strong enough. Think about what is being said here.
Brexiteer Mark Francois and ERG member says on the BBC that Theresa May’s letter to Brussels is a „mistake“ and says the UK should leave the European Union, without a deal.
„She [Ms May] has completely ignored her own cabinet which is unconstitutional and she’s gone and done it anyway. Her deal will never pass the House of Commons, it’s been voted down three times – the speaker may not even allow it to come back.
„I’m afraid the PM is in a sort of bunker here and is not listening to her own MPs, her own party members, or indeed her own cabinet and that is dangerous for the future of the country.“
This amendment (f) sets out the process for a „managed no-deal“. It requests:
The government publish tariff schedules
An extension of leaving to 22 May 2019
‚Mutual standstill agreements‘ between the UK and EU until the end of 2021, including payments to the EU
A unilateral guarantee of citizens‘ rights
A bit like Britain in just 17 da-I’m so tired.
The ‘Star Chamber’ of Brexit lawyers have delivered their own verdict on Theresa May’s revised deal following Geoffrey Cox’s fatal advice earlier, concluding that it does not meet the tests the Government set itself.
Am Abend stimmt das britische Parlament über das Brexit-Abkommen ab. Dabei kommt es vor allem auf zwei Gruppen an. Kann May sie überzeugen?
May’s statement is here, the EU’s here – review them yourself. We await Cox’s legal review and the decision of the DUP critics tomorrow. If the DUP give it the thumbs up most Tory rebels will follow suit. The ERG’s lawyers are unlikely to be enthusiastic – that is already priced in. Guido suspects those Tory MPs that want to avoid the hell that will follow a delay to Brexit – for whatever reason – will choose to believe the rabbit is real.
The whole reason for the backstop being in the Withdrawal Agreement that sets out the terms of the UK’s divorce from the EU is that the Republic’s border with Northern Ireland would, after Brexit, be the external border of the EU’s single market – and therefore has to be governed by a treaty between the UK and EU, and not one between the UK and the ROI.
An official from an EU capital also questioned whether the Republic could possibly accept „a bilateralisation that would deprive it of the clout of the EU“.
The plan, it is reported, is to “amend” the 1998 Good Friday Agreement in order make a new joint Anglo-Irish commitment that there will be no return to a hard border in Ireland and no infrastructure on that border in any eventuality.
It is argued that this, coupled with some new EU concessions time-limiting the backstop, will be enough get a decent slice of the 118 Tory and 10 DUP on board.
David Davis, the former Brexit secretary, and Jacob Rees-Mogg, the chair of the European Research Group, are among the speakers at an ERG press conference to mark the publication of a paper about the benefits of leaving the customs union
The Brexiteer says it’s now or never for those who want get rid of May – or else she could lead the party into the next election.
(28.9.2018) Boris quit the cabinet back in July in protest at the Chequers plan, and has been a thorn in the side of the PM ever since – despite battles in his personal life.
And Rees-Mogg has been steadily growing in popularity as he represents the hard Brexiteer wing of the Tories – chairing the powerful Eurosceptic faction The European Research Group.
(24.8.2018) Mr Rees-Mogg will use the residence to plot his latest Commons revolt as he sets out his own vision for a bright future outside of the European Union.
A faction of Brexiteer rebels, spearheaded by the eccentric MP, is working to create an “alternative view” to the Government’s Chequers plan, which was rubbished both by Westminster and the EU.
