Outrage in UK at Irish plans to 'demand' EU aid

Outrage in UK at Irish plans to 'demand' EU aid Government plans to seek hundreds of millions of euro in EU aid in the event of a no-deal Brexit have sparked outrage in Britain. Brexit-supporting media outlets seized on the revelations by Agriculture Minister Michael Creed that Brussels had been put on notice Ireland would be seeking assistance to cope with the fallout of the UK crashing out of the EU. It came after Mr Creed told the Irish Independent the sums involved to help trade and the beef, dairy and fishing industries would be "mega-money".

Leaving the European Union without a deal is the only way Britain can fully take back control of its borders, a former Tory leader has claimed.

Brexiteer Iain Duncan Smith said the UK would be able to start enjoying the benefits of Brexit from March 29 under a no-deal exit, rather than being left in “Brexit in Name Only purgatory” under the Prime Minister’s deal.

He described Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement – which is due to be voted on by MPs on Tuesday – as “flawed”, and instead proffered the benefits of leaving under World Trade Organisation terms.

Johnson dumps dirt on May's Brexit deal in bid to be Plan B Brexiteer rebel Boris Johnson travelled to JCB's headquarters in Staffordshire on Friday to dump some fresh dirt on Theresa May's Brexit deal. The former foreign secretary, who quit her cabinet in protest over her Brexit blueprint plans last July, told an audience of factory workers that her deal with the EU was bad for Britain and that's why parliament had comprehensively voted her down. He then went on to offer his boss some unsolicited advice about how to resolve the Brexit paralysis; Get back to Brussels and negotiate some more. "If we hold our nerve, I believe we can deliver not a pseudo Brexit...

Mr Duncan Smith said: “Only by leaving the EU on WTO terms can the UK fully take back control of its borders and deal with these issues.

“The greatest benefit of leaving under No Deal is that our country can start to enjoy the benefits of Brexit from March 29th 2019, rather than being left in the BRINO (Brexit In Name Only) purgatory of Mrs May’s deal. The British people have already waited for almost three years – they should not have to wait any longer.”

New plan to stop no deal: Now Labour MP Yvette Cooper tables draft laws to let MP seize control of Brexit - as May faces mass resignations if she tries to stop them

New plan to stop no deal: Now Labour MP Yvette Cooper tables draft laws to let MP seize control of Brexit - as May faces mass resignations if she tries to stop them Yvette Cooper's proposals are an evolved version of a plan produced by Tory Nick Boles earlier this week. The laws are thought to set a deadline of March 5 to delay exit day.

And Tory Brexiteer Andrew Bridgen said the way Mr Johnson " says it how he sees it and speaks truth unto power" was "something that endears him to a huge swathe of the British public". On the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Mr Javid said : "I think there are much better ways to articulate your differences.

"And that is what this deal does. It gives us control of our borders , our money and our laws. It protects jobs, security and our Union. It is the right deal Jeremy Corbyn added: "The Government has decided Theresa May's Brexit deal is so disastrous that it has taken the desperate step of delaying its own

His intervention came in a report published by Economists for Free Trade, in which fellow Tory Eurosceptic Jacob Rees-Mogg also said there was “nothing to fear” from leaving the EU without a deal.

Mr Rees-Mogg, the chairman of the European Research Group of Conservative MPs, claimed that while it would be better to leave with a deal, the advantages of Brexit would come through sooner without an agreement.

He said: “In addition to goods continuing to flow, under a No-Deal departure, the British taxpayer would save £39 billion, money which could be used to cut taxes, to help our domestic economy and leave plenty to help any exporters who face particularly high tariffs.

“The advantages of Brexit would come through sooner with trade barriers going down in 2019 instead of 2021 which could see the cost of food, clothing and footwear fall sharply if the Government followed sensible policies. This particularly helps the least well off in society.”

Jeremy Hunt Warns 'Brexit Paralysis' Could Lead To Remain Or No-Deal

Jeremy Hunt Warns 'Brexit Paralysis' Could Lead To Remain Or No-Deal Foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt has warned voting down Theresa May’s Brexit deal would lead to “paralysis” in parliament that ushers in either a no-deal or remain scenario. Speaking on the BBC’s Radio 4 Today programme, he also said any attempt by politicians to frustrate Brexit would damage the UK’s international reputation. It came as the third day of debate was to due open on the draft deal the prime minister has struck with Brussels.

President praises Boris Johnson and says that May ignored his advice on Brexit negotiations in His intervention sabotages her attempts to placate Tory leavers, who are furious following the They voted for us to take back control of our money, our law and our borders and that ’s exactly what we will do.”

Tory former Cabinet minister Owen Paterson, in the same report, suggested the “real reason” for the “Establishment hysteria” surrounding a no-deal exit “is that we actually would be leaving”.

“The other options now being floated – extending Article 50, a second referendum, or the subjugation demanded by the Withdrawal Agreement – are designed to hold the UK in the EU’s orbit in the hope that it may be sucked back in,” he said.

“These options would completely fail to honour the biggest democratic verdict ever delivered in British history,” he said.

“The optimal Brexit outcome remains a wide-ranging, zero-tariff free trade agreement as offered repeatedly by President Tusk. Such a deal can still be negotiated, but not by the end of March.

“Having wasted so much time on the Withdrawal Agreement, leaving on WTO terms is now the only way to break free fully and build a more prosperous, independent future.”
