Anger over Theresa May’s “private plans” is about to implode as Boris and Brexiteers suspect the worst. With her usual duplicity, May pledged in late February that she would take on the rebels over the customs union by challenging them “Back me or sack me!”
May has fended off those fears by issuing a statement that we will be leaving the single market and the customs union.
This is just a charade. May clearly dragged out the entire procedure from the start, to allow Remainers time to work out schemes that would foil Brexit for good. She did this while ensuring the country of her good intentions, the height of deceit and treacher.
We will, according to May, certainly be leaving the customs union. What we will not leaving, it now transpires, is a new “customs partnership!” This really, is the same as the customs union, in all but name. We won’t be able to make our own trade deals and will be stuck under EU rule for ever and ever. In other words, we won’t be leaving the EU at all.
But the difference in wording means that May can lie herself silly that she is keeping her pledge about the customs union. Nobody is fooled of course. But she will happy, because her hidden agenda of scuppering the EU will be achieved, job done!
I’m sure she won’t even care if she is supplanted as PM. Like a suicide bomber, she is prepared to pay the price. Because there will probably be a big fat EU payoff at the end of it, won’t there?
Tory Remoaners plot new customs partnership, ie. customs union in all but name, to end Tory split, says Standard. They must be joking!
Lords win an amendment saying they can stop us leaving without a deal. This could tie us in the EU forever.
