BREXIT BOMBSHELL: Talks To Extend Brexit ‘Transition’ Period to THREE Years
The British government is in secret talks to extend the so-called ‘transitional period’ to three years according to widespread reports in the mainstream media.
The Daily Telegraph reported;
that although it is not formally Government policy, Britain has discreetly begun sounding out senior EU figures over whether transition could be extended amid growing disarray within the Cabinet over the ultimate terms of a long-term deal with the EU.
Although it is speculative and a government spokesperson dismissed the reports as a “categoric lie” it is worth noting that the official government position is to seek a transitional period of ‘around two years’.
Jacob Rees-Mogg has led the opposition this week to Britain becoming a ‘vassal state’ and he yesterday warned that the ‘less Brexit you get, the more likely it is that you will get Jeremy Corbyn’:
If you get a good, clean Brexit and get the advantages from it then the chances of getting Jeremy Corbyn are much diminished.
Mr Rees-Mogg savaged Brexit Secretary David Davis appearing before the Commons Select Committee scrutinising the Brexit talks:
It’s hard to think of any precedent in the world where an independent nation has taken the judgements of a fine court of its superior and immediate law without having any judge on that law.
This is in marked contrast to the embattled leader of UKIP, Henry Bolton, who is facing questions about what his position actually is. During his leadership campaign, he said he would say yes to a ‘transitional period’ and then said that UKIP’s Out Now campaign, far from meaning exiting the EU now on WTO terms, actually means [24 mins] ‘planning and preparation’ for an exit – a view which seems to accord with that of Whitehall view expressed in the mainstream media quoted above.
Brexiteers need more than ever a coherent voice of opposition to the governments sell out of the referendum result.
