We’ve been in a Brexit deadlock ever since the Salzburg summit, where Theresa May was mocked by EU leaders. She then demanded respect from the EU and left it there, stating that it was now down to the EU to make the next move and break the Brexit deadlock.
The EU doesn’t want the Chequers deal, and Mrs. May said it’s either Chequers or No Deal.
Today, the EU has finally responded – and it seems like it’s No Deal. That is, presuming Mrs. May doesn’t cave. EU diplomats have rejected May’s pitch that it was now down to Brussels to break the negotiations deadlock.
Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the EU Commission, told a German audience today that he believes the British voters had not been properly informed about the scale of the problems that Brexit would cause, before the referendum.
Who does this man think he is? He said:
“What I really regret is there was no real Brexit campaign in terms of actual information…In Great Britain the people are finding out now, also British ministers and ministers on the continent, they’re finding out now how many questions it actually poses, all the things that we need to resolve.”
This is how these tyrants operate. They lie right to our faces. They tell mistruths without flinching. They’re master operators. To suggest that there was a lack of information is a blatant lie – the British people knew exactly what we were voting for.
Not only that, but to claim that we naively walked into Brexit not realizing the plethora of inevitable problems, is disingenuous too. These problems aren’t inevitable – they weren’t always going to happen. They were, instead, created by these monsters on the continent who want to punish us.
So I’m not surprised at all that they’ve rejected May’s call for them to break the deadlock. They were never going to do it. They don’t care how tough Theresa May acts if they know very well that she’s scared of No Deal.
May might stand on stage and say that No Deal is better than a bad deal, but nobody believes her. We don’t believe her because we know she doesn’t want No Deal. She wants Chequers…and she might just be willing to do whatever the EU tells her, to get it.
They also reiterated the fact that they won’t accept the economic deal set out in the Chequers plan, suggesting it would benefit British businesses and make us too competitive.
So we know the EU doesn’t want to have to compete, we know they want to give us the worst deal possible, and I fully expect Theresa May to go crawling back to the EU and break the deadlock herself.
Though I’m hoping I’m proven wrong. Come on Mrs. May…surprise me.
