"Boris Johnson: Irish Border problem a ‘gnat’ and backstop a ‘monstrosity’"

 

 

 

https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/uk/boris-johnson-blasts-irish-border-backstop-monstrosity-37322540.html

 

Mr Johnson says that such a move would also be a breach of the Belfast Agreement, as it "would amount to a change in Northern Ireland's constitutional status without its people's consent - a total breach of the peace settlement".

 

He contends that the Irish backstop proposal effectively gives the EU control over the UK, even after the UK has left the EU.

 

"We are now saying that if Brussels cannot be satisfied on our plans for the Irish border, then we are volunteering that the whole of the UK must remain effectively in the customs union and large parts of the single market until Brussels says otherwise."

 

 

aka

Johnson:

... Peerleeeeze give me an excuse make us stay while we stab you in the back

 

EU:

err Non

Talks broke up early today and aren't being resumed tomorrow, our people have left. They seem as far away from an agreement as ever.

 

Australia terms, anyone?

Evidence of backdoors in Huawei equipment collapse under light scrutiny

A cursory search finds identical "backdoors" in D-Link, Cisco, and Sony devices, among others, as poor security practices do not equate to malicious intent.

Cisco removed its seventh backdoor account this year, and that's a good thing

Seventh backdoor account discovered in Cisco Small Business Switches firmware.

This is unreal. Business Insider have got hold of a leaked document in which Liz Truss, arch-Brexiter and not thought to be too smart, is expressing concerns over border plans and rules being against the WTO ones, etc.

 

Who would have thought their plan wouldn't work?

see above reference whre Johnson hoped the EU would extend being as the UK wasn't ready, but the EU didn't need to and is done with giving favours in return for insults and lies

 

 

 

wonder if the USA will raise the objection with the WTO or whether they will get a patsy to do it?

 

or perhaps China

Liz Truss, and the Tories, have imbibed the Kool Aid dispensed by Patrick Minford (The Mad)  and swallowed Shankar Singham's Snake Oil, on mutual recognition and other fallacies, along with misconstruing WTO sttipulations.

It was always the default state since the brexiters said 'we wont implement checks its up to the EU if they want to block trade'

 

Shows just what complete rubbish the Brexiters have spouted in all areas.

 

 

If other countries have checks for our goods going to them, and we have no checks coming in

Why should those other countries put any extras effort and resources into checking whats going to the UK when we don't?

They will just drop the UK in the very small list of external countries with whom they have no trade deals

and what the heck makes the UK think that criminals will ignore that opportunity?

 

Horsemeat for burgers, slaves, or a couple of machine pistols or assault rifles sir?

No problem.

 

and the US saying you can't allow EU stuff in unchecked and un-tariffed and still deny US 'chicken

WTO rules, WTO rules - one gets tariff free check free access, we all do.

- as long as we dont come to a deal with you - like you with the EU

 

 

 

... Just like the UK appears to be planning to put everyone by default into the UK's 'EU tariffs to be applied and you'll need to claim it back' list as the only thing we have ...

.. especially if you are sending stuff England -> NI

 

.. So much for no borders or checks.

BUT there will HAVE to be checks as required by the WTO and other international agreements,

and the UK has CHOSEN to implementation default multiple declarations and default EU tariffs you have to claim back ... because the Johnson and the populists are incompetent and unprepared - despite their claims (LIES)

Rumour mill has it (genuine rumour not me) that Geoffrey Cox was not dumped and replaced by Suella Braverman because of his saying that the illegal proroguing of parliament was 'arguably'  legal,  or for hurling abuse at Parliament, or for anything else he did;

but apparently because despite all he WAS prepared to do, he was not on board for 'working around' (reneging)  actual international agreements with the EU whereas Suella Braverman is more than happy to rubber stamp owt.

 

Johnson has apparently briefed his staff to come up with ways to 'work around' the Irish border agreement...

Wait until he upsets the VERY powerful American-Irish US lobby group on top of everything else and see where it gets him.

 

 

The UK as a nearer target for Russian nukes in a 'limited' nuclear engagement might not seem quite so attractive to Trump when the Irish-American lobbiests go to town on him.

EU deal replicated 'as far as possible' ... aka less than

 

"The British Government is continuing to work intensively on securing continuity with other countries.
We have secured agreements – either signed or agreed in principle - that account for 64% of the UK’s trade with all the countries with which the UK is seeking continuity, should we leave the EU without a deal."

 

With what I've seen on that page I linked earlier, that would seem to be decidedly unambitious 'trade deals across the world larger than the EU

64% of how much in £, I wonder?

 

Given that Europe is a high proportion of exports - was it 40%? - I suspect that overall it's still a lower figure.

That IS the question HB.

 

My literal quote isn't surrounded by additional perspective I commonly add and was shown as is.

 

 

 

"64% of the UK’s trade with all the countries with which the UK is seeking continuity,"

 

* It seems a given that Johnson is not seeking continuity with the EU HB

 

* Undoubtedly the reality is they just mean 64% of continuity with the handful of African nations that the reference was in despite it implying something else

 

In which case, a more accurate statement than that presented by Johnson the Liars representatives would be:

 

We've managed 64% continuity with a small group containing a small handful of African nations which are a small part of Africa as a whole and an utterly tiny part of world trade

 

and presumably, as they have singled that out for special mention to give their chosen implied perspective ...

- that 64% continuity (a little over half we have as part of the European Union) the best 'continuity' deal they've managed so far with any county or block.

 

It certainly isn't 64% continuity of even JUST the external to the EU beneficial trade we have as part of the European Union let alone replicate the benefits with the rest of the EU

 

and Don't forget thats just continuity - carrying on what we currently have - and not any new or additional/improved deals

Chancellor ‘to set up 10 deregulated freeports’

 

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/freeports-brexit-rishi-sunak-tax-cuts-michael-gove-a9614291.html

 

 

Only way these would be anything other than tax avoidance/evasion (at best) is if the japanese car manufacturing plants became these 'ports' and the EU allowed the Japanese to avoid the post Brexit UK -EU import taxes.

 

...still a tax avoidance scheme - but at least it would give some benefit to the UK public and manufacturing industry.
