The Brexit Betrayal: The Truth About “Deal or No Deal” Vs The REAL Deal

Below, an extract from the Statement by President Donald Tusk on the draft guidelines on the framework for the future relationship with the UK  published on the European  Council website on 3 March, 2018…

Click on the photo to read Donald Tusk’s     entire statement.

“…Now, coming to the core of our future economic relationship. During my talks in London last Thursday, and in her speech last Friday, Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed that the UK will leave the Single Market, leave the customs union and leave the jurisdiction of the ECJ (European Court of Justice). Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the only remaining possible model is a free trade agreement. I hope that it will be ambitious and advanced – and we will do our best, as we did with other partners, such as Canada recently – but anyway it will only be a trade agreement.
I propose that we aim for a trade agreement covering all sectors and with zero tariffs on goods. Like other free trade agreements, it should address services. And in fisheries, reciprocal access to fishing waters and resources should be maintained…”  Ends.

When Brexiteer MPs have mentioned the above offer in TV interviews, they have been  brushed off, the impression given that this is now in the past, was rejected or is no longer available.  No need to ask why.  We know that the mainstream media, along with the majority of MPs in Parliament do not want to leave the EU and are doing everything in their power to stop Brexit.  “STOP BREXIT” was actually the official slogan of the Liberal Democrats in the recent EU elections, with other parties openly campaigning to overturn the 2016 referendum result, albeit hiding behind the demand for a second referendum, confirmatory vote etc.

The level of dishonesty, the machinations being employed, must surely concern anyone considering Brexit through the prism of Christianity.  Below, Conservative, Steve Baker MP, who said in media interviews last weekend that he was giving consideration to standing as a candidate in the current leadership election to be the next Conservative leader/Prime Minister, speaks about Donald Tusk’s offer in his resignation speech in Parliament, following his resignation from the Government on the grounds that he was unable to support Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement/”deal”.  

Comment: 

Given the level of dishonesty, double-speak, and the various machinations being employed to prevent Brexit, isn’t it time for everyone who values truth and integrity, certainly every follower of Christ, to stand full square behind the 2016 vote and insist that the UK Parliament implements Brexit?  Christ, remember, said: “Let your ‘yes’ be ‘yes’ and your ‘no’ be ‘no’ – everything else comes from the Evil One”  (Matthew 5:37). 

17.4 people across the UK said YES to leaving the UK, despite huge pressure from the Government  to vote to remain, and subsequent polls and interviews reveal that our YES meant YES notwithstanding attempts to rig and/or interpret results to show the opposite.   So how are we to interpret the fact that Donald Tusk’s above offer was not explored by the UK negotiating team, alongside the fact that the remainer lobby continues to speak about the impossibility of being able to agree a “deal”?   What’s going on?  And should we all be praying that Steve Baker puts his name forward for the leadership / premiership, since he would, more likely than not, hold the powers-that-be in the EU to that offer? 

Note: as always in Brexit discussions, our concern is not with the various political parties and their policies, or with the voting records of individual MPs, but focuses purely on the issues surrounding Brexit.  Regular bloggers and readers will know that I am apolitical in that, for a long time now,  I have been forced to spoil my voting paper (by writing a note to the effect that I cannot support the Godless laws introduced/supported by all of the above)  because all UK political parties have supported the introduction of laws which contradict God’s moral law and so, in conscience, I am unable to vote for any of them.  I voted for The Brexit Party in the EU elections purely on the Brexit ticket.

  1. I think that’s a very important point about looking at the whole Brexit debacle through the prism of Christianity and where that leads. It certainly can’t lead anyone to support liars and devious attempts to overturn the referendum.

    Steve Baker isn’t in the leadership line-up but it would be interesting to hear his pitch if he does stand. I think it’s really good that there are so many names going forward because that makes it more likely that we’ll get a committed Brexiteer, not someone with the agenda to compromise.

    I saw a clip of a video with Nicola Sturgeon shouting that the 48% who voted to remain are being ignored – yet she ignores the million Scots who voted to leave; she is such a hypocrite. Whoever becomes the next prime minister has to be straight talking, and say that the losers don’t usually get concessions. You win or lose. That’s the reality of it and someone needs to make that clear, hopefully whoever is the next PM will say that and point out that not everything can be up for compromise. Sometimes, people just have to accept a situation and if you voted to remain in the EU you need to accept that we’re leaving. I actually think that would go down well with the public, as most people just want the thing over and done with and everyone appreciates strong leadership.

    • Fidelis,

      About seeing Brexit through the “prism of Christianity” – at first I wasn’t too comfortable with that since I know good people who voted remain in good faith, but the more I think of the duplicity in Parliament and think about why the MPs are so determined to keep us in, and knowing that the EU is notorious for its corruption and its accounts haven’t been signed off in years, I have started to understand that there is a definite case for Christians to support the exit.

      • Michaela,

        Fair point about the well-intentioned people who voted to remain, and in my (naturally limited) experience, I can honestly say that the people I know who voted to remain are not still campaigning for that. They are thoroughly fed up with all the wrangling and just want “to get on with it”, which is the comment we hear most often in news reports and documentaries, from both Leave and Remain voters.

        It’s the remainer MPs and some other public figures, such as the business woman Gina Millar, who set out to keep the possibility of remaining in the EU alive and kicking.

      • Editor,

        The one I hope doesn’t stand is Philip Hammond. I think he would frustrate the process and is the male Theresa May!

  2. I am disgusted that more hasn’t ben made of the Donald Tusk offer – that is disingenuous.

    On the Muslim LGBT Lessons thread just now, I read a newspaper report which quotes Esther McVey MP who is one of the leadership candidates, saying she believes it’s for the parents to decide if their children should be given LGBT lessons or not, speaking about the Birmingham protests by Muslim parents, so – and I know it’s not about other issues, just Brexit – I would hope to see her succeed in the leadership race because she’s also very strong on Brexit. She is the only one, as far as I know, who says we shouldn’t go near the EU now, they don’t want to reopen the deal, so just leave on “no deal”.

    I did watch the Steve Baker speech in the video above and he looks very promising as well, so either/or – as long as we get out of the EU, I’m not too fussed about who the leader is.

    • Nicky,

      I am really appalled that the free trade over from the EU has been airbrushed out of the discussions – and dismissed any time it is mentioned. That’s truly dishonest.

      I also agree about Esther McVey; when I saw her interviewed on Sky after her resignation and later (last week) after her name was put forward for the leadership, I was impressed with her straightforwardness.

      So, either Esther or Steve Baker would, in my view, make excellent PMs.

      Whoever wins will need to have a strong character to withstand all the pressures from their fellow MPs and the EU negotiators.

      We really ought to pray for a speedy and satisfactory resolution to all of this.

    • I am stunned at the news there was a free trade deal. It shows exactly what a hopeless, deceitful Prime Minister Theresa May is.

  3. I took a look at Steve Baker’s twitter feed and found this short video of Guy Verhofstadt showing his pleasure at the prospect of an EU army.

    I was pleased to read several tweets about the need for the next leader to be crystal clear about Brexit policy, so he’d get my vote, either him or Esther McVey if she would hold her ground.

  4. Well, nobody can be in any doubt now that the EU project is spiralling into a United States of Europe with its own army and probably police force. It really didn’t take long for them to get from a trading bloc to a political union with its own parliament and president. I wish the remainers would wake up and smell the coffee, before it’s too late.

    The very fact that there are still MPs campaigning to “stop Brexit” shows that they are anti-democratic. There should be no such thing as a “remainer” at this stage.

    I don’t know anything much about the leadership candidates but I did warm to Steve Baker giving his resignation speech. It will be interesting to see if he puts his name forward. If so, I think he’d be in with a good chance.

  5. Dear bloggers,

    I’d be very interested to hear your ‘take’ on this……

    ….’It may shock most to learn that Nazi ideology was, and still is, behind the EU. The document that follows is the English translation of the original German one as referenced under the World Catalogue OCLC number 31002821 and available in the public domain via various libraries, archives and websites.

    It is a document of great historical significance and essential to understanding the mindset behind the European Union and where the idea originated. It is the original blueprint for ‘the European Economic Community’ which would later become, as we know, the European Union. Created as a series of seminars by the Third Reich’s Economic Minister and various advisors to Adolf Hitler so that in the event the Nazis should fall to the allies and lose the war, they could complete their plans covertly by subversion, treason and sedition from ‘within each government’.

    In it you will find the proposal of a one united Europe with one currency, one transport system…and more importantly, the United Kingdom was to be “de-industrialised“, and used for a limited amount of agriculture and tourism. The plan was to usurp each nation’s sovereignty, including Britain, and create a Europe wide dictatorship; and for us, stripping out anything that put the “Great” into “Great Britain”. Ironically – Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, and Corporatism have all turned out to be distracting labels for the same ideology and in reading this document, one will find it chilling that most of the changes that the Nazi’s had planned for the United Kingdom have already been implemented.

    Slowly, but surely, and by covert means, the followers of this ideology, these conspirators, backed by huge financiers, namely the international banking families, have succeeded in infiltrating Westminster through the political system and parts of the Intelligentsia over the last 60 plus years. They have ushered in the Acts and Treaties envisaged in this document – NATO 1947, The Treaty of Paris 1951, Jean Monnet 1952, The Treaty of Rome 1957, European Communities Act 1972, European Monetary System 1979, Single European Act 1987, The Maastrict Treaty 1991, Euro Currency 2002, The Lisbon Treaty 2009.

    This manifesto is the foundation that these traitors within our political establishment have been building on since the end of the Second World War. It was a means to an end. An ugly end. We may had removed Hitler from power, but the forces behind him pressed on and what was not achieved by arms, has sadly now been established through money, treason and subversion….’

    • Pat,

      Many thanks for posting that interesting text. I’ll read it again, and visit the links, but it is – as you say – “chilling” – “chilling that most of the changes that the Nazis had planned for the United Kingdom have already been implemented.”

      I’ll read it more carefully asap – for now, thank you for posting it.

  6. Calling RCA Victor…

    I stumbled across this piece of ignorant bigotry in the New York Times a few minutes ago. Unfortunately, their comments section is now closed or I’d have told them what I thought of them – every comment more anti-democratic than the one before.

    WOW! Do they hate Donald Trump and Nigel Farage in equal measure. Numpties!

  7. As I have said before, I don’t get a vote in this issue…and why should I anyway…I left Britain over 40 years ago. But I still CARE anyway. I just wish that the ‘no deal’ leave is the result and happens quickly.

  8. Pat McKay, those are very interesting links indeed. I remember coming across that ideology some years ago, and when I tried to discuss the implications of it, I was called mad and a conspiracy theorist! It was early days days then, more or less, but this foul anti God agenda has galloped on and is now in our front rooms! Thanks for bringing it back to our attention.

  9. This link takes you to a page where all the current leadership candidates are listed, showing their voting record on life issues. Red = pro-abortion vote, Green = pro-life vote, Yellow = abstained and Grey = not in office at that time.
    https://righttolife.org.uk/news/tory-leadership-candidates-abortion-2019/?mc_cid=72e039fde8&mc_eid=1e754e8a87

    There are some surprises in there – on the good side, Andrea Leadsom is pro-life, but Esther McVey is pro-abortion. that is very disappointing, as I thought she’d made a good PM and get us out of the EU. Now, I’m not so sure.

  10. I think that you will find you will not be alone in thinking about spoiling your ballot. The damage that the present incumbents in Westminster are doing is hard to estimate but it will have long lasting effects on our society
