Brexit: A useless meeting in Luxembourg
If you ever thought the meeting between the European Union leaders and Prime Minister Boris Johnson would make a difference. It wouldn’t, were back to square one or the same as yesterday. The Prime Minister have been busy campaigning, suspending parliament and not really ensure the withdrawal from the EU. Therefore, today is really a suspected approach of it all. Not like the Tories nor its government had any significant plan to make a difference or find solutions.
That is why the statements from both parties shows this.
“President Jean-Claude Juncker and Prime Minister Johnson had a working lunch today in Luxembourg. The aim of the meeting was to take stock of the ongoing technical talks between the EU and the UK and to discuss the next steps. President Juncker recalled that it is the UK’s responsibility to come forward with legally operational solutions that are compatible with the Withdrawal Agreement. President Juncker underlined the Commission’s continued willingness and openness to examine whether such proposals meet the objectives of the backstop. Such proposals have not yet been made” (EU – ‘Statement by the European Commission following the working lunch between President Jean-Claude Juncker and Prime Minister Boris Johnson’ 16.09.2019).
“The Prime Minister and President Juncker had a constructive meeting this lunchtime. The Brexit Secretary and Michel Barnier were also in attendance. The leaders took stock of the ongoing talks between the UK’s team and Taskforce 50. The Prime Minister reconfirmed his commitment to the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement and his determination to reach a deal with the backstop removed, that UK parliamentarians could support. The Prime Minister also reiterated that he would not request an extension and would take the UK out of the EU on the 31st October” (UK – ‘PM meeting with President of the European Commission: 16 September 2019’ 16.09.2019).
Because, we see what is the vital things. For the EU is the measures made within Northern Ireland, UK mentions it, but the final date is more important than how it will be after the ending of the membership. Which is rare approach to it all, that the PM is not working to configure the ending, but securing the date. It is like the final destination is more important than to where his going.
While the Brexit is in crisis, the PM doesn’t act like it. His just ready to run, before he trained to walk. Boris seems again to focus more on his own talking points, than what is really important. That is weird as a head of state, he should care about the consequences and the possible change post-Brexit. However, the PM explains what he wants gone, but he has no answer to what that will be. That is why there is nothing done with the backstop, only that the PM wants it end it all in time.
That is really a weird way out. Not with the tact or ideals of what should be the focus. The Tories and the PM really need to change. There is no technical solution, as the EU have delivered their own solution, one that the PM is dismissing. That he has no other option to fix.
The only thing Boris can fix is his own spin on the BBC, the rest is not eating it. I don’t, I will not eat his rubbish. You can, but Europe see his play and think he can fool the world. However, seemingly by his record breaking lack of finesse. Boris is losing at home too, that is why his corned, but he doesn’t know it yet. Peace.
