There will definitely be no Brexit until Theresa May get support, a cabinet minister has already warned.
Jeremy Hunt,Health Secretary said it is not about decision between “that Brexit and this Brexit”.
He was talking as leading Brexit campaigners forwarded demands for Mrs May before accepting any money to the EU, including finishing the European court’s jurisdiction the time the UK leaves.
The UK voted for Brexit in 2016 and is due to leave at 03/2019.
But compromises between the EU and the UK have not yet reached an end.
Brexit: All you need to know
Farage: I’d take my EU pension
What will the EU going to say at the summit?
Reality Check: What is going to happen with Brexit divorce bill?
Jeremy May is on travel to Brussels on Monday for meeting with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, with hope that the EU will agree that “sufficient progress” for beginning trade talks.
Mr Hunt’s said, in an ITV interview, he defended the PM and sought to reassure critics that UK courts would be superior after Brexit.He further said: “I think there will be an even bigger point here, that the choice we face till now is not between this Brexit and that Brexit; if we don’t back Theresa May we will have no Brexit – and she is doing an unbelievably difficult job surprisingly well.”
Whats going to happen for negotiations?
The talks so far have been on what happens to citizens’ rights after the Brexit, the amount of payment UK will pay, and the future of the border of Irish.
In the divorce Bill, UK have recently increased its offer, which will be worth up to 50bn euros (£44bn).
There is a lot of focus on the Ireland question in these weeks, with the Irish government looking more information on the “frictionless border” the UK wants to stable so customs checks are not required.
Will Ireland’s demands delay in Brexit?
The EU will only going to talk about future problems like trade when “sufficient progress” will be made on these subjects – and is due to decide whether this happen on 14 and 15 December at a summit.
“Leave Means Leave” What is that?
The campaign group explains itself as the “campaign for clean Brexit”.
Persons who sign this letter to the prime minister include Owen Paterson, previous Tory cabinet ministers , John Redwood and Lord Lawson and ex-Brexit minister David Jones.
MPs in Backbench Jacob Rees-Mogg (Conservative) and Labour’s Graham Stringer have already put signatures on it, also several economists and business leaders.
Lord Howard,Former Conservative leader – who didn’t signed the letter – told the BBC’s Sunday Politics that he shared the “aspirations” contains.
What they need?
The letter writes that EU has not matched the “patience and goodwill” Theresa May has delivered till now, and says that UK should make no “further financial commitment” until it certifies to certain agreements.
From March 2019, they say:
There will be an “in principle” agreement for a free trade deal done
The present free movement of EU citizens to UK should end
EU regulations should not apply in the UK
The European Court of Justice should “stop to have any jurisdiction whatever happens” in the UK
Speaking on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show, Mr Rees-Mogg said if the UK remains attached to European court rulings after March 2019 “we will be staying in the European Union”.
What the government says about this??
Theresa May promised that Brexit will end the territory of the European Court of Justice in the UK. But she has advised its remit might continue during an “implementation period” after 03/2019, which would not justify the Leave Means Leave demands.
Upon immigration, ministers said that free movement must end with the UK’s EU membership but promised businesses a “cliff edge” will be ignored in terms of employing foreign workers.
In the meantime, there been more warnings on the subject of the EU court from previous Court of Appeal judge Sir Richard Aitkens and ex-Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith.
The Sunday Telegraph published that Sir Richard, the president of the Lawyers for Britain group, writes to Mrs May asking that giving the ECJ the exceptional territory over EU citizens’ rights would be “tantamount to reverse the result of the 2016 referendum”.
