FARAGE: BREXIT BETRAYAL IS NOW GOVERNMENT POLICY
Nigel reacts furiously to government’s announcement on customs union.
Brexit Leader Nigel Farage has laid into the government’s position on the customs union that will mean the UK limited and stuck inside the same system for years to come after Brexit in 2019.
The plan, which was championed by Remainer Philip Hammond, will see Britain keep the current customs arrangement with the EU in a so-called ‘transition period’.
This will mean that Brussels could block the UK from signing new trade deals for years, rather than Brexit Britain being able to sign deals as soon as it leaves the EU in 2019.
Nigel Farage responded furiously, insisting that it amounted to “Brexit betrayal” now becoming official government policy.
Brexiteers want to see a full exit from the customs union as quickly as possible as was promised. With countries around the world already lining up to do a trade deals with the UK, it is frankly farcical for the British government to back itself into a corner where the EU would have to give permission for deals to be signed in 2019.
This represents a drawn out, backwards step that will encourage Remoaners seeking to keep the UK as attatched to the EU for as long as possible in order to try to reverse the Brexit process entirely.
Just what the hell is going on in Number 10? Who is running the show? And what are they thinking?
