The EU will demand that Brexit Britain be subject to rulings from the European Court of Justice indefinitely, according to the Financial Times.
The text of the “governance mechanism” is due to be presented tomorrow, however, according to officials who have seen it, any Brexit agreement will require Britain to accept the ECJ as the ‘ultimate arbiter’ of disputes.
Failure to comply with rulings could see the UK face sanctions such as having it’s access to the Single Market cut off.
So, basically, the EU wants the ECJ not only to dictate the law to a sovereign nation in Brexit Britain, it has also threatened to hold the UK to ransom if it dares disagree with the court’s rulings…
Brexit hero Jacob Rees-Mogg slammed the proposal, telling the FT: “I think the EU is going to suggest some things that the British government will reject this week and this sounds like one of them…It would turn us from a vassal state into a convict state, sentenced to hard labour for our love of democracy.”
Theresa May had said in her landmark Lancaster House speech, in which she laid out her vision for Brexit that: “We will take back control of our laws and bring an end to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in Britain. Leaving the European Union will mean that our laws will be made in Westminster, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast. And those laws will be interpreted by judges not in Luxembourg but in courts across this country.
“…we will not have truly left the European Union if we are not in control of our own laws.”
If May agrees to this, she’s complicit in the complete betrayal of Brexit voters.
