those of us who have always belived in leaving the eu..have many reasons for doing so..mine have always been from a left wing standpoint, it always amazed me why the left jumped on the eu bandwagon..when in norway and other countrys the left are so anti eu..we see the eu in big trouble everywere italy, greece, spain, both partys fought the last election on respecting the referendum result..84% of voters voted for either, yet the tory goverment have been in total disarray and have shown they cannot govern and also cannot fight for our country...we will pay a heavy price for this cowardice....and i fear for our country in lots of way never mind the loss of respect for political democracy..
i received this from labour leave today
Last night the Prime Minister betrayed the nation, antony. Theresa May and her quisling Cabinet have quietly knifed democracy, draped an EU flag over the corpse and now sit obediently at Barnier’s feet.
On Friday, the British government agreed to ensure we keep in alignment with EU rules, including state-aid prohibitions, crippling our ability to develop our own economy as we see fit. This effectively locks us into a single market on goods but not services - free trade where we have a big deficit, but not where we have a big surplus. Incredible.
The government has changed freedom of movement to ‘freedom of mobility’ - this theme is continued throughout May’s proposal: the fundamentals are largely unchanged, they simply have new names. antony, this is not what we voted for.
The Prime Minister has agreed to a “customs territory” meaning our ability to strike trade deals will be severely limited. Our weak Prime Minister has also agreed to our courts observing due regard to the European Court which means, effectively, we will not control our own laws. She has made clear the UK courts will sign off on any new laws, but the reality is quite simple: if the UK does not maintain complete legal alignment, the EU says no more free trade. This is recognised in May’s document, where it acknowledges failure to port over the laws would have consequences. This is a charade, sovereignty as little more than a pretty light show.
We have been betrayed.
The sell out we have been warning of has come. The Prime Minister has abandoned her manifesto. Parliament has abandoned the manifestos which 84% of the public voted for. Incredibly, May has managed to find a proposition which betrays Leavers, and yet still won’t satisfy the EU - make no mistake, there will be substantial climbdowns still to come.
The British people voted to take back control of their money, their trade, their borders and their laws. The Prime Minister has achieved not one of those commitments with her proposal today.
Labour Leave has been campaigning since the referendum to ensure Brexit means Brexit. Everyone else has closed up shop. We need your help now more than ever. We need to make Westminster understand loud and clear that the public will not be treated like worthless fools.
Please donate £20 or more if you can afford it to help us save Brexit today. This is the fight of our lives. Democracy is at stake. And we are losing.
