It’s like a border nightmare, a fictional approach, which will not stick. This is the sort of proposal, a pick-and-mix. Which plenty of Europeans said wouldn’t happen with the Brexit. Still the United Kingdom and their leaders, thought of themselves as so special, unique and wise. That they would get the deal they wanted and Brussels would comply? How dumb is London?
Right now Merry Poppin’s, the whole shining Tories and Prime Minister Boris Johnson is on crash-course on fundamental principals. Not that the “Back-Stop” is an original idea, but it makes some sense. Even if the Tories, DUP and other ones are disagreeing. Because, the trading has be done a certain way and especially considering the circumstances in Ireland/Northern Ireland.
The UK is blatantly playing second fiddle and hoping nobody catching them in lie or in the act of mischief. Because, the proposal and the explanatory note to the letter send to Jean-Claude Juncker is specifically saying this: “The introduction of a zone of regulatory compliance across Northern Ireland and the EU would remove the need for regulatory checks and related infrastructure at the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland, while enabling the UK and EU to maintain their own distinct customs regimes” (HM Government, 02.10.2019).
This is a unicorn of magnificent proportions, the sort of epic monster whose appearance only get overshadowed by Helen Mirren or Sean Connery trying to be poetic on the telly. In the mean while, we know this will not stick.
His trying to have mechanisms, whatever they maybe, but as long as they are not called the “back-stop”, which is in the Withdrawal Agreement. It is so special kind of failure, the ideals of whacking the same empty plastic-bottle and thinking sooner or later it something will come out of this. However, it will not.
The EU will not be fooled by this, their legal team will not accept this and this horseradish and nincompoops will only agree to this. The ones whose blind-sided by smear and total utter rubbish 24/7.
We all can see this, Europe sees this and thinks, does the Tories think their own population is this stupid? Do the Tories think Dublin and Belfast is so naive?
Because, that is how it seems. As it states later in the note: “To support this system of controls at the boundary of the zone, traders moving goods from Great Britain to Northern Ireland would need to notify the relevant authorities before entering Northern Ireland, in order to provide the necessary information to undertake the appropriate checks, and, where appropriate, prevent the entry of products prohibited or restricted by EU rules. At its boundary with other third countries, the EU currently captures much of this information through the application of the Union Customs Code” (HM Government, 02.10.2019).
Still, they want to trade, sell and move goods, but notifying is enough. But what happens if a driver, or company forgets to notify and cross the borders, wouldn’t that be smuggling without following the codes? Wouldn’t be problematic. From a government filled with questionable characters at best, they should consider that all people aren’t truthful in their declarations. That is why most passengers with illegal amount of goods on airports, tends to pass “nothing to declare”.
Don’t they think that this will happen here to? Or is Boris suddenly heart-warming, caring individual who actually wants to make life easy? Nah, I don’t believe that stick.
Let’s be clear, this sort of unicornification of the withdrawal is foolish. It is a Narnia, a Shia without the Elves or the Hobbits. But surely they do got some unicorns for sale. Especially from the Tories, they are in stock and ready for trade. Even before the next Premier League Transfer Window, maybe Everton will buy that one.
This got to stop and its only a few days left to 31st October 2019. The clock is ticking and this is only getting dumber by the minute. Peace.
Barnier response letter:
“It was said by a former Prime Minister that where law ends, tyranny begins. It pains me to say it, but the fact that the Prime Minister is still standing here today shows that he does in fact believe he is above the law. Well, he is not” – Ian Blackford (SNP)
There is nothing standing in the way of Boris Johnson, not a click-click dot-dot speech in the United Nations General Assembly. Neither a not so prorogued Parliament. Which the Supreme Court validated, that the actions made by the Prime Minister and his counsel was done illegally. This means, that the Prime Minister Johnson has already lied to the Queen to postpone her speech for the reason of total control and lack of scrutiny in the final days before the 31st October 2019. However, he lost that battle and that is why the Parliament had a sitting and a plenary today.
“The Prime Minister is not serious; he needs to understand that actions have consequences. Even my five-year-old knows that if you do something wrong, you have to say sorry. If my son can apologise for kicking a football indoors, surely the Prime Minister can have the humility to say sorry—for misleading the Queen, misleading the country and illegally shutting down our democracy” – Jo Swinson (LD)
To answer both these opposition leaders, he was swiftly changing the narrative and coming with the newly furnished pledges, instead of actually showing actions or remorse. The PM shown no signs of relent of will to bow down and humiliate himself. Instead, he acts still all powerful, even when the Supreme Court and the laws has outsmarted him. That is because, him and Dominic Cummings isn’t that brilliant after all. The lawyers and attorneys of the opposition has more clever ways of addressing the laws. As the leaks of the Attorney General saying as advice to the PM that it was all legal all along. Surely, the Tories doesn’t care about the laws, but only about their gains out of it.
“Can I say to the Prime Minister that those of us who voted for the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act make no apology whatsoever for having legislated to prevent the Prime Minister from taking this country out of the European Union on 31 October without an agreement? The Prime Minister can shout as much as he likes from the Dispatch Box but he cannot hide the fact that he has no mandate, no majority and no credibility” – Hilary Benn (Lab)
We can clearly see, that the value of the PM words is abysmal and is in a position where he cannot win. That is both because of his own making, himself becoming a minority government and also making the whole enemies by suspending it on the wrong ground. Therefore, the words of wisdom and the tales of old should be whispered into the ears of Boris, But don’t anticipate him to get enlighten. His not the character, he rather play the public for a fool, but in the end his the biggest won.
“I have to say, Mr Speaker, that that is an extraordinary delusion and a fantasy, a fantasy even greater than the communist fantasies peddled by the Leader of the Opposition” – Boris Johnson (Con)
What we are seeing is a man, who has no scrupulous and would say whatever to get his bargain. If it is communist fantasies to find a possible solution and also reach a better agreement with European Union, even offer the public a second referendum. Since the first one was made on false promises of a withdrawal without any consequences and enrichment of the Kingdom. Which we all know, that will not happen, not even the slightest. That is the Greek drama and the deception, that Johnson is thriving on.
We don’t know how this will end, but the stress, the possible tarnish and the utter disgraceful attempt to block the representatives to speak their will is now over. The PM cannot just order things without consent or without the houses agreeing upon it. That is why his hurt and struggles, as the PM wanted to work on this in the darkness and not shed a light on it.
Boris is a sorry soul. He might have the highest office, but his a despicable man whose hunger for control is overpowering his mind, his vision and his end-game. He doesn’t see it or have the ability too. Since his to lost in his ways, but the outside see it and the lies, the facade and the rhetoric aren’t winning over anyone. Except Brexit Party, which should be his next when this whole Brexit is over. Peace.
