Mogg SLAMS EU’s ‘Punishment Period’ Plan To CONTROL Britain After Brexit
It was tonight revealed by the Guardian that the EU are planning to grant themselves the power to punish the UK by blocking our Single Market & Customs Union access during the transition period, going above even the ECJ (European Court of Justice) with this unprecedented power.
The 27 nation states left in the EU after Brexit are reported to be on the manoeuvres for more power so that they and the unelected EU Presidents will not be required to go through the complex legalities of the ECJ.
This suggestion will be seen by many to be a great affront to the British democratic principle of the separation of powers between the legislature – in the form of the European Parliament and the nation states – and the judiciary in the form of the ECJ.
Immediately after a meeting of big-hitting Conservative Brexiteers, Mr Rees-Mogg said that if the UK is forced to submit to EU rules during a transition period, it must be done so on the understanding that the EU will also follow the standard ECJ procedure and will not grant itself overbearing executive power over the UK.
He said: “It’s not something we could accept”.
Mogg’s comments come prior to two meetings of Theresa May’s ‘Brexit War Cabinets’ with key members of her cabinet, which are scheduled to take place on Wednesday and Thursday.
Mrs May is, however, facing strong pressure from the most ardent of Brexiteers such as Rees-Mogg but also from the remoaners within her fractious party who are doing all they can to discredit Mogg and the European Research Group of which he was recently elected Chairman.
