Brexit Secretary David Davis “couldn’t sell out his own country,” so he gave Theresa May a piece of his mind Sunday night. Walking away from his post in charge of Brexit negotiations was an act of defiance against the Socialist “Nazi” power-brokers trying to work a sweetheart exit deal, where the center of socialist power, Brussels, Belgium, holds all the cards. One by one, other conservative ministers followed his lead.
The double-crossing deal that left-leaning Prime Minister May tried to shove down Parliament’s throat was exposed for the “big turd” it is by Boris Johnson. Supporting it would be nothing but “polishing a turd” to make it easier going down, the high ranking Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary warns.
In a show of conservative solidarity, “Eurosceptic” MP Steve Baker also resigned from his post as under-secretary to the Department for Exiting.
One way or another, Britain will “leave the European Union on 29 March 2019.” Still up in the air, “the two sides have yet to agree how a trade will work between the UK and the EU afterward.”
Baker, and Suella Braverman, “are not members of the Cabinet but were the Brexit Department’s other elected Brexit supporters,” Braverman also tendered her resignation in support of Davis, according to inside sources.
With Davis and his faction out of the picture, everybody wants to know what happens next. MP Jacob Rees-Mogg told local news, “These proposals will have to come to the House of Commons in legislation and the question is ‘will they command support from Conservative MPs?’”
Without Davis’ “seal of approval” that isn’t going to be easy, Rees-Mogg declares, “I think without David Davis there, without his imprimatur, it will be very difficult for them to get the support of Conservative MPs”
“An egg which is very softly boiled isn’t boiled at all; a very soft Brexit means we haven’t left, we’re simply a rule-taker,” Rees-Mogg points out. “That is not something that this country voted for; it’s not what the Prime Minister promised… I will certainly stick to the Conservatives’ manifesto commitments, and will not vote for something that doesn’t deliver Brexit.”
Davis is “unpersuaded” that May’s giving in won’t “just lead to further demands for concessions” from Brussels.
It’s nothing but a trap, he insists. “The general direction of policy will leave us in at best a weak negotiating position, and possibly an inescapable one.”
May’s traitorous deed “hands control of large swathes of our economy to the EU and is certainly not returning control of our laws in any real sense,” Davis explained.
“The current trend of policy and tactics is making it look less and less likely” the UK would ever really leave “the customs union and single market,” Davis wrote in his resignation letter.
“Parliament will be under the sword of Damocles… it’s illusory rather than real [power]. It’s painting something as returning sovereignty, returning control to the House of Commons but in practice, it isn’t doing so.
We’re giving too much away too easily, and that’s a dangerous strategy at this time.”
BBC’s political editor described Davis as “‘furious’ after a meeting at No 10.” The people clearly demanded nothing short of full liberation from Europe’s tyranny, but when PM May sat down with the Ministers at Chequers on Friday, Davis was “the odd man out.”
Davis told the BBC correspondent that he had been “compromising for two years” and May’s Chequers plan was the last straw. He called it, “a compromise too far.” He thought it over and decided to tell May to shove it.
Trying to stay in the job of convincing conservatives to back May’s plan is “not tenable” anymore because her total capitulation to Europe is not “workable,” he feels.
May’s cushy plan allowing the EU to dictate open borders policies and acceptance of sharia courts revealed Friday was already allegedly leaked to Germany’s Angela Merkel “before her own Cabinet.”
It would “leave Britain effectively still inside the EU’s Single Market for goods and agricultural products but outside the Single Market for services.”
UK would still be “subject to a ‘common rulebook’ dictated by the EU court, as well as bound to EU standards on state aid, employment, and other regulations and forced to collect customs duties on the bloc’s behalf, among other onerous obligations.”
Liberal Britons hoping for a replacement favorable to the “stay” camp were disappointed by the replacement who has already been named. Dominic Raab “campaigned for ‘leave’ during the UK’s 2016 EU referendum.” Raab got a promotion from his slot as housing minister.
Unsurprisingly, Mrs. May does not agree with Davis characterization “of the policy we agreed to at cabinet on Friday.”
There is considerable speculation that the issue is serious enough to subject May to a vote of confidence in Parliament, similar to impeachment here. “This is absolute chaos and Theresa May has no authority left,” Minister Ian Lavery thundered.
Davis says if there are political attacks on the Prime Minister, they won’t be coming from him.
Davis told reporters if he “wanted to bring her down,” he would have done it “after she failed to win last year’s general election outright.” He does not want her job either. “I won’t throw my hat into the ring.”
Conservative MP Peter Bone added a new term to the political lexicon. “The PM’s proposals for a Brexit in name only are not acceptable.” “BRINO” now accompanies RINO and DINO on the list of acronyms.
