What is the point of a committee ,when she won’t answer any questions truthfully!!
cw porter
Hang 'em all.
Release the draft of the Withdrawal Agreement !!!! We need to see the extent of May's collaboration with the EU that leaves the UK legally shackled. What does she have to hide??
How can she be so useless?
Paul Isbell
The first lock is the transition period, which lasts until at least 2021. We must
hand over an estimated £39 billion for nothing, be bound by EU law and take
orders from an unelected Joint Committee operating under the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. Will the EU27 agree an equitable free trade agreement before the end of 2020? Unlikely, since all the goodies they want in the “future partnership” are set out in the Northern Ireland backstop, which kicks in automatically on 1st January 2021 unless superseded by a
partnership” agreement. Full ratification by all Member States is required
before any such agreement can come into force. Achieving this in time to avoid
entering the backstop would be nothing short of miraculous, even if the EU
agrees to extend the transition period for one or two years. So it is more pay
with no say and a likely doubling of the Brexit bill to £80 billion, to be paid with
no reference to British MPs.Not only does the backstop carve out Northern Ireland a an EU province and set a border in the Irish Sea, it creates a partial “customs union" that requires us to implement EU trade tariffs and with no decision making powers.
Under highly restrictive “non-regression clauses”. the UK also agrees to
implement all EU emimnmental. competition, state aid and tax harmonisation laws, with the unelected Joint Committee and the ECJ once again able to punish us for any perceived backsliding. British farmers will be locked into a subsidy regime well below support received by EU27 farmers , who nevertheless
retain tariff-free access to the UK. British agriculture would be decimnted. It
means we could not support British businesses, give ourselves a competitive edge in new technologies where we excel. strike independent trade deals or diverge in key policy areas Such as good regulatory and tax Free EU access to UK fisheries to sit down as a marker for negotiation future “deal”
The Political Declaration replicates all the onerous “non-regression” clauses of
the backstop and requires even more surrender of sovereignty via participation in and funding of the EU’s aerospace and defence programmes, free access to UK waters for EU fishermen, a full customs union and common trade policy, free movement by the backdoor under “mobility” clauses, EU control of UK agriculture via the state aid rules and in general full adherence to the acquis communautaire in all policy areas.

so, it's still her deal or some worse variant of it, or we face the same crap in october?
ENOUGH! Leave no deal, go WTO, then negotiate trade-ONLY from a position of strength, and not her simpering weakness! Lions led by donkeys? Nah. Lions led by weasels.
Such an embarrassment

It's Brexiteers that should be "grilling" her - not a bunch if her own globalistic, leftist REMAINER M.P's, where the questions were intentionally hand-picked ........ not ONE of them asked the old hag to explain as to WHY her "Deal" is deemed to legally be NOT BREXIT .......... a fucking farce ......... every traitorous fucking ONE of that 'panel' are on the payroll, and have been told what to 'ask' Treason May and what NOT to ask, let's face it. The lies and deceit continues. The entire beaurocratic system is rotten to the core. This video just further proves that fact.
Opto Mister
What a bloody mess !

It is astonishing how this useless PM can talk doublespeak, convince herself that her way is right, and the electroate are so incredibly thick that they will not annihilate the Tory part for allowing her grand betrayal.
