Government Prepare to Miss EU and US Trade Deal Deadlines

The UK’s future trade deals with the US and the EU are both on the brink as it’s now expected neither will meet their deadlines and be concluded by the end of the year. To be generous there have been a few distractions…

The FT reports the Government has “abandoned hopes” of reaching a deal with the US ahead of the Autumn’s presidential election, with officials blaming the Coronavirus pandemic distraction for slow progress. The deal remains at loggerheads particularly over the question of allowing US agricultural products into the UK. The DfT had hoped to conclude a “fast-track agreement” by late summer…

A coincidence of timing sees The Telegraph also reporting this morning that Britain is “close to abandoning hope of [a] Brexit trade deal” with Europe, having learnt the Government’s working assumption is now that the UK leave on WTO terms. The scope of remaining disagreement seems more wide-ranging than the US-UK deal; with fishing rights, level playing field guarantees, governance and the role of the ECJ all still providing roadblocks. Boris set a deadline of July – just eight days left to turn things around…

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics.

Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes? 
Continuiosly using the NHS as a stick to beat the opposition or a classic party political paper dragon! (Paper Dragon): a politician or political party whocampaign to fox the proble…

Has the Supreme Court handed Boris Johnson a Brexit escape route?

The Supreme Court’s judgment is the latest constitutional perversion after the Benn act. But ironically it may assist the Government in achieving its objective of Britain leaving the EU by 31 October, without having to seek an extension to the Article 50 process.
In paragraph 34, the Supreme Court states that its ‘proper function’ under our constitution is to give effect to the separation of powers (which justifies court intervention in relation to prorogation). Then, in what appears to be an innocuous sentence in paragraph 55, it says that it is to be “remember[ed] always that the actual task of governing is for the executive and not for Parliament or the courts.”
Yet the Benn Act manifestly contradicts this principle. It dictates how the Government must conduct negotiations with a foreign body, the EU, to the extent of obliging the Prime Minister to write specifically worded letters and accept whatever extension it offers when certain conditions are not met. In the situation when t…
