No Brexit before 2022: Government drawing up EU transition plan that will last three years

No Brexit before 2022: Government drawing up EU transition plan that will last three years:

relationship between the UK and Brussels after Theresa May failed to win a majority in last month’s election.

According to British officials both the Remain backing chancellor Philip Hammond and the Leave supporting Brexit secretary David Davis are championing a significant transitional period to give Britain breathing space.

Their plan is being driven in part by the fact that the Tories do not need to call another election until 2022, and so would be able to fight the next campaign on the basis of any deal they get with Brussels.

Whitehall sources said Cabinet ministers want to ensure that the UK has as soft a landing as possible after Brexit whilst delivering on pledges to leave the Single Market and Customs Union.

SHAMELESS Tony Blair to spend £10MILLION on new campaign to BLOCK Britain LEAVING EU:

TONY Blair will splash almost £10 million on his newly-established anti-populism institute so he can “support” the bitter campaign to try and keep Britain within the crumbling European Union.

Battle of Brexit begins: Labour threatens to sink historic Repeal Bill

Battle of Brexit begins: Labour threatens to sink historic Repeal Bill:

Theresa May faces a humiliating defeat over Brexit as Labour warns it will block the so-called Repeal Bill if the prime minister fails to implement dramatic changes.

The government has on Thursday published the bill – deemed “one of the largest legislative projects ever undertaken in the UK” – saying the legislation will “maximize continuity” on the day the UK effectively withdraws from the EU wherever it is “practical and sensible”.

The bill seeks to repeal the 1972 European Communities Act so that EU law no longer has precedence over UK law.

It copies all EU law into UK legislation so that individuals and businesses are not frustrated as Brexit comes into effect, but Parliament will then be able to change “amend, repeal and improve” the laws as necessary.

EU chief says he expects Britain to take part in EU plan to relocate refugees from Africa

EU chief says he expects Britain to take part in EU plan to relocate refugees from Africa:

A TOP eurocrat today said he expects Britain to take part in a proposed EU scheme to relocate genuine refugees from Africa to Europe, which is primarily designed to bring an end to the continent’s growing migration crisis.

EU Commission deputy head Frans Timmermans said he anticipated Westminster green-lighting the voluntary programme because previous UK Governments had championed taking in people in need of international protection straight from refugee camps overseas.David Cameron pledged to resettle 20,000 Syrian refugees directly from UN-run camps in the Middle East rather than participating in Brussels’ migrant quota system, saying it was a better way of guaranteeing those in genuine peril were helped.

“Brexit Is A Lose-Lose” – George Soros Slams Brits’ “False Hopes” As UK Economy Nears “Tipping Point”

“Brexit Is A Lose-Lose” – George Soros Slams Brits’ “False Hopes” As UK Economy Nears “Tipping Point”: 

A day after Brexit negotiations officially began, and seemingly unable to get over the result of democracy, George Soros is once again rattling his op-ed sabre, proclaiming the ignorance of British ‘brexit’ voters is about to get its come-uppance…

Economic reality is beginning to catch up with the false hopes of many Britons.

One year ago, when a slim majority voted for the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union, they believed the promises of the popular press, and of the politicians who backed the Leave campaign, that Brexit would not reduce their living standards. Indeed, in the year since, they have managed to maintain those standards by running up household debt.

This worked for a while, because the increase in household consumption stimulated the economy. But the moment of truth for the UK economy is fast approaching.

Soros said Britain’s eventual exit from the EU will take at least five years to complete, during which the country will probably hold another election.

REVERSE BREXIT? Macron Signals to May That UK Can Remain in the EU

REVERSE BREXIT? Macron Signals to May That UK Can Remain in the EU:

If you are paying attention, you will see more and more stories positioned by the mainstream media steering the public away from a ‘Hard BREXIT’ and reminding people that, ‘the public mood has changed since the referendum,’ and that ‘maybe it’s easier for Britain to just stay in the EU.’

What The Guardian is carefully avoiding here, is the realpolitik thriving beneath this carefully spun headline. In fact all British media are avoiding the true nature of the BREXIT deception, which is that the Conservative Party never intended to take the UK out of the EU.

Sterling slumped overnight, and tensions between the UK and Europe escalated after EU negotiators hiked their initial demand for Birtain’s Brexit bill over recent weeks, widening the divide between Brussels and London, which in turn questions whether it owes anything at all before Brexit talks start next month. Hours before chief negotiator Michel Barnier was due to give more details on the EU’s standpoint, the Financial Times said the EU might seek an upfront payment in 2019 of up to €100 billion, drawing an immediate rejection from Britain’s Brexit Secretary David Davis that he would pay that sum.
