Brexit Means Brexit

Express:

In her opening speech to the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham, Theresa May spoke out against those still agitating against the historic vote to quit the EU on June 23.

To cheers from party members, she repeated her vow to kickstart Brexit before March next year and to create an “independent, sovereign United Kingdom” free from Brussels’ rule with a Great Repeal Act to scrap EU law.

Mrs May said: “Even now, some politicians – democratically-elected politicians – say that the referendum isn’t valid, that we need to have a second vote.

“Others say they don’t like the result, and they’ll challenge any attempt to leave the European Union through the courts.

“But come on.  The referendum result was clear.  It was legitimate.  It was the biggest vote for change this country has ever known.

“Brexit means Brexit – and we’re going to make a success of it.”

Acknowledging the British public “will soon expect to see, on the horizon, the point at which Britain does formally leave the EU”, the Prime Minister confirmed she will trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty  – the legal mechanism for quitting the bloc – within the first three months of 2017.

Mrs May accused those MPs and peers currently campaigning for Parliament to have the final say on invoking Article 50 of “trying to subvert” democracy.

She said: “They’re not trying to get Brexit right, they’re trying to kill it by delaying it.  They are insulting the intelligence of the British people.”

…the Prime Minister added: “We are not leaving the European Union only to give up control of immigration again.

“And we are not leaving only to return to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.”

Telegraph:

Theresa May will repeal the 1972 European Communities Act in a move that will formally begin the process of making Britain’s Parliament sovereign once again.

Addressing the Conservative Party Conference for the first time as leader, Mrs May will on Sunday declare that her Government will begin work to end the legislation that gives European Union law supremacy in Britain.

In its place, a new “Great Repeal Bill” will be introduced in Parliament as  early as next year to put power for the nation’s laws back into the hands of MPs and peers.

…She said on Saturday night: “We will introduce, in the next Queen’s Speech, a Great Repeal Bill that will remove the European Communities Act from the statute book. That was the act that took us into the European Union.

“This marks the first stage in the UK becoming a sovereign and independent country once again. It will return power and authority to the elected institutions of our county. It means that the authority of EU law in Britain will end.”

Mr Davis, who is charged with leading the negotiations as Secretary of State for Exiting the EU, will explain the decision during his speech.

“EU law will be transposed into domestic law, wherever practical, on exit day,” he will say.  “It will be for elected politicians here to make the changes to reflect the outcome of our negotiation and our exit. That is what people voted for: power and authority residing once again with the sovereign institutions of our own country.”

That seems pretty clear. Will other nations soon follow?

‘Almost ALL EU nations will follow UK OUT of EU’ French MP says Brexit was just the FIRST

BREXIT will inspire a wave of referendums which will finish off the European Union (EU) for good, a French MP has claimed.

Philip Cordery said opposition to Brussels was soaring “everywhere” – and, given the right leadership, “almost every country” in the 28-country bloc could vote to leave.

Mr Cordery said: “I think what happened in the UK at the referendum could have happened almost every other country in the European Union – except in the other countries no Prime Minister would have been as irresponsible as to ask for a referendum.

“If we look today, Euroscepticism is growing everywhere, populist movements are growing everywhere in Europe.”

The half-English politician said more and more people were objecting to the EU’s economic restrictions and rapidly losing patience with dictatorial and stubborn Eurocrats.

      A Database of All Smokers

      “With rapidly increasing internet access, most smokers would probably elect to transact their licensing on-line, thereby providing an email address. This information could be used by governments as a way of efficiently communicating new and potentially cessation-motivating information to all smokers, with tailored messages for different age groups”

      I’ve been expecting that since the smoking question in the 2001 census.

    “no Prime Minister would have been as irresponsible as to ask for a referendum”.

    I love that because he got it so wrong. Cameron felt he had no choice through fear of UKIP poaching more of his MP’s – and that support for UKIP may have been so strong that the Tories would have lost more seats at the general election.

    It took UKIP several decades to get to that position.

    Same as the National Front in France, yet Ms. Le Penn is being taken very seriously as a possible next President of France.

    And the Five Star movement is in the process of building up a head of steam. Even Alternative for Germany is gaining traction.

    When looked at retrospectively it’s easy for Mr Cordery to be critical of Cameron. Looking at it prospectively, I’ll wager there will be several “irresponsible” heads of state who will find they have absolutely no choice but to call for a referendum.

    And when we pull it off, get the hell out, go our own way and grow the economy, those calls will grow.

    Of course if the EU would quit navel gazing, reform, become more of a trading block, build in flexibility and quit interfering in affairs of state then maybe, just maybe – if they extract the digit – the frustration at the waste, incompetence and mindless bureaucracy might ease, though I doubt that’s even close to possible, certainly not from the EU.
