‘Still on hook!’ Habib answers your Brexit concerns HERE – exposes UK still shackled to EU

When we will see some good things coming from Brexit. Instead of all the nasty cons? Please answer that question if you can.

I can really answer this question. Firstly, we do not yet have a real Brexit. Brexit means that the country leaves the EU as a United Kingdom. The Prime Minister was elected on this promise but then broke it. Northern Ireland has remained. A lawsuit I am fighting for has confirmed that the law of the Union has been violated by his Brexit agreement. Unless and until Northern Ireland is liberated from the EU, we will not really have Brexit.

Northern Ireland has remained

In most other respects, the Prime Minister’s Brexit agreement is BRINO (Brexit in name only). We have left the EU institutions but have kept very close focus on it. The Prime Minister promised that we would regain control of our laws, our borders, our cash and our fish.

He has broken all these promises. As a result of his Brexit agreement, we have entered into equal terms with the EU in terms of state aid, employment, competition and environmental legislation. For example, we are bound by his deal with Net Zero until 2050.

He has also given away billions in cash and handed over our fishing waters to the EU for as long as the deal lasts. We are still craving a solidarity guarantee for the European Investment Bank’s debts of EUR 500 billion. He even undertook to comply with the European Convention on Human Rights and the European Arrest Warrant – EU courts can issue a decision to arrest a British person and that person can be arrested in the UK with very little protection from our own courts.

The details of these commitments are lost on almost all Tory MPs and the general public. The point of Brexit was to leave the anti-democratic enormously bureaucratically stifling EU. We have not done that. So we can not deregulate as we should and we can not reduce taxes as we should.

We have regained some freedoms and we seem to be taking great advantage of them. Hitting the EU against vaccines was such an obvious huge advantage.

The city is free from EU regulatory shackles and, we are told, it will soon benefit from deregulation. I hope it happens.

But the really big gains we could and should have received from Brexit can not be delivered as long as PM’s deal is in place.

What is your view when you see the EU states rolling over on their backs to get their stomachs tickled, rather than taking direct action against Putin. The fact that they are still paying him makes me believe that the relevant countries must be pushed out of NATO for good. I would like to know what you think?

The EU is a mercantilist institution with self-declared intentions to increase its geopolitical influence and military strength. It often acts outside and against the interests of US / UK foreign policy. It wants its own version of NATO, called PESCO, which would not include the United States. NATO has maintained peace in Europe since World War II and the EU’s goal of developing PESCO should be of great concern to all Europeans.

Its failure to properly impose sanctions on Russia is not surprising given Germany’s long-standing association and dependence on that country.

Why did you vote for NIP as a Member of Parliament and then go to court to challenge it?

I voted in favor of the withdrawal agreement for the reasons set out in this article, which I wrote at the time: https://brexitcentral.com/why-i-will-vote-for-the-withdrawal-agreement-in-the-european-parliament/

Had the Prime Minister fulfilled his election promises, he would have solved the problems with WA and NIP.

He was close to fixing NIP in September 2020 with the internal market bill but then failed again. Unfortunately, it is not possible to trust PM. He can go down in history as the Prime Minister who cracked our country.

Hello Ben. Did you get the Brexit you voted for? You do not seem so happy with it.

I am very dissatisfied with that because we have not received Brexit – see the answers above.

Do you think it is possible that the British public has changed their perception of Brexit after seeing its effects?

No – the British public has seen the EU more and more clearly when we have gone through the Brexit process and are still going through it.

The British public has seen how terribly the EU treats Northern Ireland.

Can Ben explain in simple language to this old lady what the actual consequences would be for Britain if Article 16 were triggered and why the government is so reluctant to invoke this after so many months of threats?

Article 16 is not, as it is so often described, a nuclear power button.

It is a legitimate safeguard measure within the Northern Ireland Protocol that gives the United Kingdom the right to suspend part or all of the Protocol if it causes social, environmental or economic harm and / or trade diversion. There is reason to invoke it.

This is accepted by the government. That it does not invoke is an act of gross negligence and constitutional self-harm.

The government and our Prime Minister are overwhelmed by the EU’s (illegal) threat of sanctions if Article 16 is invoked. Our government and our Prime Minister lack the backbone and understanding of how to handle this situation properly.

It’s a tragedy.

Can Ben tell us why the Brexit we have is not the Brexit that someone was promised or wanted? Why did the government not go back to the people and explain to them why they would not actually get what they were promised?

Please read the answers above but specifically to this question: the Prime Minister is looking for offices more than anything else. He will say and do whatever is necessary to win and then retain power.

If he now honestly accounted for the shortcomings of his agreement, he would be rejected from Downing Street. But there was a time when he had won his throbbing majority (December 2019) and before he signed the agreement (January 2020), to renegotiate it.

He had a golden opportunity. Instead, he went on a longer vacation to Mustique.

Why he did not act then is a question that only he can answer.
