UK Prime Minister Theresa May Major Brexit Outline Speech – 6:30am Live Stream (11:30am UK)…

brexit 13British Prime Minister Theresa May is set to deliver a highly anticipated speech on the UK’s outlined plan to exit the European Union.  The speech is for diplomats at Lancaster House in London today at 11:30am local, 6:30am U.S. Eastern. – Live Stream Embed Below:

It’s been six months of no action since the Brexit referendum vote to leave the EU.  Recent reports claim Brussels is likely to insist on freedom of movement for EU citizens in and out of the U.K. in return for full access to the EU single trade market.  This is a major test for the fortitude of May, who Brexit supporters feel must outline a hard exit with no middle-ground for free movement access.

    I have already read what she is supposed to say by browsing UK news sites (a nightmare – even the conservative ones still mock Trump).

    Apparently she wants to leave the EU in 2019 (!) and also doesn’t want to sign a trade agreement with the US prior to that.

    I do frankly not understand what this idiocy is about. Just leave and terminate the relationship, leave the paperwork to Brussels. The 13 Colonies also needed no negotiations to terminate their relationship with the English Crown.

    The best option would be, of course, that the EU just vanishes this year with Le Pen’s election. That would also erase any chance of the EU forcing something on the UK, and it would leave no possibility for Scottish separatists to claim they could leave the UK and join the EU.

    I also think that Trump is aware that Theresa May isn’t really on his side, which is why he met with Farage after the election (not with her, but he met Abe and Netanyahu) and gave an interview to Gove, who is a critic of her.

    (The free movement thing is a total disaster – Italy, for example, gave EU papers to migrants to send them to other EU countries. A Britain with ‘free movement’ would mean that the EU could dump its migrants on the UK, because Britain would lose the right to vote in the EU Council but would still be affected by its decisions.)

    And I just got this idea reading my own words… Would Trump’s proposed trade agreement remove the border tax between the US and the UK? Because if it does and if the UK remains a part of the EU ‘single market’ it could become legally impossible to stop continental European goods coming to the US without the border tax due to the single market being, legally, one entity. That means the UK would be a big hole in that border tax.

    I am not expert on such issues and I hope any loopholes will be closed.

      Sa Bi, you don’t need a border tax with First World countries that play by the rules. Our trade deficit with Britain is super small most years and actually has been a surplus twice in the last four or five. Britain does not dump their products on us the way Asia and Mexico do. The EU could not use Britain as a conduit for exports to the US, unless Britain were to play along with that, which is highly unlikely.

    Very important speech. One that can determine British policy for decades as one of the best commentators put it.
    No coincidence that Trump’s interview with the Times came out yesterday. It was a big boost for the PM’s Brexit plans as she has to fight off a lot of resistance from the opposition, the media and her own party.

    Teresa the Appeaser sure has taken her sweet time in doing nothing for six months – with luck we can get some idea of her plans – and they’d better be for a ‘hard brexit’ with no freedom of movement. There’s a reason why 17.4 million of us voted out.

      She probably expected that Trump would lose or that he would somehow get stopped after the election (Electoral College/CIA/etc). The fact that he will indeed be President makes it much harder for her (a globalist) to explain her desire to keep some ties with the EU.

      In this context it should be noted that the anti-Trump dossier was traced back to a British agent.

Like you, I’ll give her some respect if she finally delivers.

          DebbieUK— As I was listening to Mrs. May, I was reflecting on the poltical undercurrents which affect Europe and the world at large, and it seems the Left, when you boil it all down, mostly objects to the way conservatives play identity politics when pushing back against political correctness– a rather ironic criticism coming from those whose entire political franchise is based on identity politics!
          So, President-elect Trump, I see the outlines of a grand bargain with the left. Aparently, they hate identity politics. So do we!
          If this doesn’t work, I suggest that , in the US, the Attorney General send out Cease and Desist orders to all schools and major corporations benefiting from either US funding or tax laws in regards to these organizations’ systematic purging of US citizens whose political persuasion may be conservative. The nifty trick of disparate impact studies should be enough to strike fear in their hearts and bring them to the table.

I had read the individual incidents Miss Phillips discussed in her blog but I hadn’t assimilated them in the same way someone living in the middle of the events is capable of doing. Really good news to learn there are “treepers” over in England having every bit as much optimism regarding government transitions moving (ever so slowly) in the direction of helping its own citizens. I call her a “treeper” because she is analytically and methodically evaluating the information and then optimistically placing her conclusions “out there” for the world to consume.

    There are a few things to remember here:

    1/ David Cameron was PM when the referendum took place. He resigned hours after the result was in. He said he was not going to be the person to trigger Article 50.

    2/ Fortunately, the UK did not have to wait long before the Conservative Party elected Theresa May as their leader. She has only been PM since July 14. It is important to remember that some MPs would like to force a general election because her majority is small. In their eyes, she has no mandate.

    3/ Parliament was in recess between July 21 and September 4. A team of civil servants began investigating the complexities of invoking Article 50 to arrive at the best way and time to do it.

    4/ When Parliament returned, Remain MPs debated whether the referendum result should be respected and whether they should all have a vote on it.

    5/ There was also a Supreme Court case heard, brought by a woman named Gina Miller and a hairdresser (Dos Santos) in August. On December 8, the Court announced it would not overturn the referendum result, but judgement is expected in January 2017. It’s a complex case:

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-08-08/how-a-hairdresser-s-lawsuit-could-spell-trouble-for-brexit

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R_(Miller)_v_Secretary_of_State_for_Exiting_the_European_Union

    6/ Parliament was in recess between December 20 and January 8.

    7/ Theresa May lays out her 12-point plan today.

    May would not have taken any unilateral, independent action as PM, if that is what some readers here were expecting. The British Parliament works through discussion, persuasion and building consensus (to the extent to which that is possible).

    If anything, May might well consider Trump’s presidency as a help. It could make her job easier when it comes to triggering Article 50. If I remember rightly, they will be meeting next month. He might give her helpful suggestions in that regard as well as make an offer on trade.

    That said, Trump must not be perceived as interfering. He is, unfortunately, highly unpopular in the UK.

            Oh, I fully appreciate that, but it seems she is committed to going through with a full Brexit.

            At this stage, I’m more concerned about EU-loving MPs opposing her and the British public who voted Leave.

            Re Boris, I, too, was initially disappointed that he did not win the party leadership. However, he would have had MPs opposing him at every turn. He could say the sky is blue on a sunny day and they would have said he was wrong. Imagine how that would have worked with Brexit.

            A lot of Conservative MPs are opposed to Boris, too.

            Personally, I think we have the right PM for the job. And she is a vicar’s daughter who still goes to church every Sunday, twice on Christmas. People may say, ‘So what?’ but she appears to have a very strong moral and ethical compass.

    Well that was disappointing, some portions were tough talking but many were too waffling – “a phased process of implementation being in both our interests” – and seems to indicate they want to keep the bandwagon rolling for a few more years yet. Article 50 has always struck me as an obstacle course set in place by Brussels to stop people leaving, so I believe we should’ve just left by abolishing the 1972 European Communities Act but, as DebbieUK mentioned above, we seem determined to play by their rules rather than forcing them to play to ours.
