No deal is better than a bad deal

Various people are spreading the lie that they were not told No deal is better than a bad deal  before the 2017 election. Not only did Mrs May often say it but it was  on p36 of the Conservative  Manifesto.

    According to Remoan mind readers when I voted leave I didn’t vote for no deal.

    Anyone who knows anything about the EU knows that any deal with the EU would be a bad deal.

      You have never been given the opportunity to vote on no deal.

      You may think you were – but that is only because you were not paying attention.

      This lack of attention to detail may be why you back Brexit.

        When you voted remain were you voting in the future to have the Euro, allow further nations to join, tax harmonisation and more QMV creating an EU army or were you voting remain for the EU to remain just as it is today?
        How much attention were you paying young Andy?
        This lack of attention to detail is why you voted remain.

        Of course we were, in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2019.

        At each vote, leaving the EU without reference to any “deal” has always been the winning proposition.

        In fact, every general election-winning manifesto since 2005 has promised a referendum or a withdrawal. Parties have to pose as anti-EU to win. That’s how sick the British people are of the EU.

        If we are made to vote on the question for a fifth time, in a new general election, we’ll vote to leave again, and this time we might vote for that nice Mr Farage to get it done.

        So those of us who voted Leave, Andy, all 17.4m of us, were not as intelligent as you, were not paying attention and had no attention to detail.
        A lot of us, Andy, have had far more successful careers than yours. What a totally insulting comment. Do you really not have the ability to argue from a position of facts.

        That’s odd. Ok my ballot paper it asked:

        Do you want to Remain in the European Union?
        Do you want to leave the European Union?

        Simple as that. No mention of deals. In or out. Black or white. Binary choice. You lot who recess to accept the referendum result will do anything to justify your undemocratic and autocratic actions. Just like the EU!

        The withdrawal agreement (any withdrawal agreement) is not a deal. It is a requirement to follow EU directives and processes until a deal is made.

        Thus leaving will always be with no deal until the FTA is agreed.

        The EU will not enter into FTA talks until we leave. Leaving is by default No deal

      • Posted September 9, 2019 at 9:23 am | Permalink

        So 17.4 million people ar all too stupid to know what they were voting for? Where have I heard that one before???

        I have studied the Withdrawal Agreement. Ignore the backstop, it’s still terrible.

        I was paying attention closely when I voted Leave. The ballot paper was remain or leave. Nothing else. No mention of any deal. Anyone with a grain of intelligence would know that we were never going to get anything other than a punishment deal designed to scare other countries into following our lead.

        I backed Brexit because I do not want this country subservient to and unelected foreign autocracy. Remainers are now using ‘Stop No Deal’ as an excuse for what they really mean – ‘Stop Brexit’.

        Attention to detail you say

        You cry almost every day about to quote you ” the disaster, breakdown and failure of the UK economy” Yet when asked for evidence you run away and hide

        So explain this

        Bloomberg

        U.K. GDP rises 0.3% with growth across all sectors of the economy, easing some recession fears

        Also Bloomberg

        Norway’s $1 Trillion Wealth Manager Vows to Stick to U.K. ‘No Matter What’

        “What we’ve said for three years now is that we are a long-term investor in Great Britain no matter what the outcome,” Yngve Slyngstad, the chief executive officer of Norges Bank Investment Management, said in an interview in Oslo with John Micklethwait on Bloomberg TV.

      You didn’t vote for no deal, because all the Leave campaigns promised one, and there was nothing whatsoever on the ballot paper against one.

      Good and bad are relative terms, and the deal would have to be far, far worse than anything so far proposed to be poorer than no deal.

      In any case, the UK will have to negotiate access to ports, roads, airspace, and markets whether it leaves with a deal or not.

      Reply Remain throughout the campaign told us we would be leaving the single market and customs union with no special deal.

      • Richard1
        Posted September 8, 2019 at 5:07 pm | Permalink

        2 things are clear:-

        1. At no point did the Remain campaign say that we would only actually leave the EU if we had managed to agree a deal acceptable to the EU, otherwise the referendum would be ignored; and

        2. The WA traps the UK permanently in the EU`s regulatory and trading arrangements (such as the CU) without any votes. It would therefore preclude any realisation of the potential benefits of Brexit as claimed by the Leave side.
        The WA is therefore worse than remain- as I see even mr farage now agrees.

        That was a warning, as to the fact of what leaving the treaties would mean, on the fair assumption that only utter fools would treat that lightly, and recognise that replacing those essential entitlements might not be easy.

        It was NOT a report of a policy promise.

      The fact is, we voted to Leave the EU and, as stated in Art.50, we either agreed to the negotiated WA or, we left after 2 years in no WA could be negotiated.

      It is parliament, rejecting the WA three times that has created this situation, not people not knowing that they voted for.

      Lets open a saucy bottle of Redwood from early 2016……I amused by its piquancy…etc

      The UK could simply amend the 1972 European Communities Act to make clear that as from the Exit vote all EU laws and rules in the UK …..
      ( So thats no cessation process at all ..a unilateral hostile act)

      ( he goes on…)
      ……… the UK would then be able to negotiate which agreements and rules need to remain to facilitate our trade and economic relations with the EU……. I would expect the rest of the EU to want to keep the trade agreements, mutual market access, pipeline, transport …… the UK is free to legislate as it wishes – over borders, benefits, environment, energy and much else”

      Now that was what merely Mr Redwood was offering at the time. Which is not No Deal it is more No Truth.

There is no EU law or treaty requirement to have a Withdrawal and EU law supersedes UK law.,parliament,cannot ask for something that the EU is not legally required to provide a nation when leaving.

        Either for some reason you slept through the Conservative campaign during the General Election, or you are suffering from severe deafness. Or you are just pretending you ‘haven’t heard or read’ that ‘No deal is better than a bad deal’. It was indeed a current phrase used by the government during the months following the 2016 referendum, and enshrined in the Manifesto – P.36 line 1 to be precise.

    It’s just more BS to undermine the referendum result.

    But as all leavers know, EU law says we cannot get a trade deal with the EU until after we have left, so why do the remoaners keep asking where is the deal before we have left ?

    Leavers also know that according to A50 the EU should enter negotiations in good faith on the future relationship with the departing state. We also know they have not done this and are in violation of their own treaty.

    WTO exit it is then.

      Oggy, I agree. The EU and remainiacs need to be reminded of this:

      European Council Brussels, 29 April 2017, EUCO XT 20004/17
      Special meeting of the European Council (Art. 50) (29 April 2017) – Guidelines

      I. CORE PRINCIPLES
      2. Negotiations under Article 50 TEU will be conducted in transparency and as a single package. In accordance with the principle that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed, individual items cannot be settled separately.

      By demanding the UK sign up to the WA and PD before a trade deal is agreed, the EU is in contradiction of the core principles set out in EUCO XT 20004/17.

      Also III. AGREEMENT ON ARRANGEMENTS FOR AN ORDERLY WITHDRAWAL
      11. In view of the unique circumstances on the island of Ireland, flexible and imaginative solutions will be required, including with the aim of avoiding a hard border, while respecting the integrity of the Union legal order. In this context, the Union should also recognise existing bilateral agreements and arrangements between the United Kingdom and Ireland which are compatible with EU law.

      I have not seen any evidence that the EU has made any effort to develop “flexible and imaginative solutions” with the UK nor has any intention of doing so.

      The PM cannot go to prison for a creation that parliament has invented. It is not a requirement of article 50 to have a Withdrawal Agreement. In any event parliament was talking about a trade deal not a Withdrawal Agreement. Mayhab exchanged/ conflated in its place to make our country a vassal state.

      That 58% was fragmented and at the time could not produce the requisite majority to form agovernment.

      No deal was never a subject for a mandate. Just to remind you the question was Leave or Remain. Leave prevailed with 52% of the vote. So we leave, with or without a deal. By being so commercially dumb as to rule out no deal, remainers are unlikely to be offered a deal. By definition they are losers, sad that there are so many of them in Parliament at the moment.

      The manifesto was probably an aspiration, unlike Labour’s declared respect for the referendum result. Another socialist gold plated lie, they have no respect for anything other than their perceived self interest, and that changes with the wind. We should be grateful that they have made themselves unelectable.

    And, of course, we were told, on the eve of the referendum, that the UK would not be able to return to the negotiating table if it voted to leave the EU. We were told that the outcome would be final, and that “out is out”. We were told that the UK would not get a better deal than the one already negotiated by David Cameron. We were told all of this – and still we voted Leave.

    That should have set expectations.

      It is indeed. The Corbyn government want to kill private schools, steal property off landlords, steal shares of company owners and pension funds. Probably kill private health care and long terms care too. In short to destroy all confidence in the UK economy and deter nearly all investment in it. While forcing people to use dire state monopolies in education, health care, housing and the likes. It would be a total disaster.

Imagine trying to buy a house or a car if the vendor knows that your family have instructed you to buy that particular house or car, cone what may.. I don’t think any MPs are too stupid to grasp this, so their actions can only be seen as an attempt to derail Brexit.

        I do not belong to any political party and I am neither insane, stupid nor a traitor. Ruling out no deal does not mean the same as accepting whatever deal the EU offers. What it does imply, however, is that further discussions should be held, and these should include looking at whether it might be better for the majority of the country to remain in the EU, especially now we know from so many experts in their fields what the ramifications are likely to be if we leave, particularly if we leave with no deal.

    Well, in any case the general election was held on June 8 2017, while the Act to empower the Prime Minister to serve the Article 50 notice that the UK intended to withdraw from the EU, with or without a withdrawal agreement under the terms of that article as it might turn out, came into effect on March 16 2017, and during the Commons passage of that Bill MPs like Philip Hammond had voted for it even though they must have known that it could lead to a supposedly catastrophic “no deal” outcome.

    http://johnredwoodsdiary.com/2019/07/22/chiming-our-independence/#comment-1039139

    “So here we had a man who held one of the great offices of state, that of Chancellor of the Exchequer, voting for a course of action which he must have known perfectly well at the time could potentially lead to what he now claims would be catastrophe for our country, without objecting that the Bill should be amended to incorporate whatever safeguards could be devised to prevent that eventuality; only now does he use this as an excuse to try to stop not just a no deal Brexit, but any other kind of Brexit.”

    SOME Leave campaigners wanted a deal, SOME leave campaigners wanted a Norway situation, SOME leaver campaigners wanted Canada , SOME leave campaigners wanted EFTA . EVER SINGLE ONE of the 17.4 million wants to LEAVE

    For the sake of my own reputation I wondered whether to send a letter to the editor of the Maidenhead Advertiser publicly dissociating myself from any unlawful actions by Boris Johnson, for whom the only honourable course is resignation; but in the end I decided that he will probably back down when he has a clearer vision of the prison gates yawning open to receive him, and so I sent this little letter instead:

    “In 2003 the EU was working to provide itself with a codified Constitution, and one important question which arose during that process was that of a provision for the secession, or voluntary withdrawal, of a member state from the Union.

    Concern had been expressed that the EU was being increasingly depicted as a kind of prison, rather than a voluntary treaty-based association of countries, and therefore it was considered necessary to introduce a mechanism for a country to leave.

    Moreover, it was agreed that the decision to leave should rest entirely with the country concerned.

    To quote from the preparatory work for that article, which eventually became the present Article 50 TEU:

    “The Praesidium considers that … withdrawal of a Member State from the Union cannot be made conditional upon the conclusion of a withdrawal agreement. Hence the provision that withdrawal will take effect in any event two years after notification … ”

    So what has our own Parliament now done? Passed an Act to make the withdrawal of the UK from the EU conditional upon the conclusion of a withdrawal agreement.

    Where the EU itself feared to tread in the past, our homegrown eurofanatics have now rushed in.”

    If we cannot leave without a ‘deal’ then we are at the EU’s mercy. They can offer (have offered) a bad deal and if we do not accept it, then we would have to stay in the EU.

    We do not need their permission to leave, so no deal must be a valid option as no deal is better than a bad deal.

    Look, we had a general election in 2017 and once again we voted in a majority of MPs who do not want the UK to leave the EU. Now that reluctance to follow the wishes of the electorate as expressed in the 2016 referendum vote has been nursed in enough of their breasts for long enough to break out into action to stop it happening. For anybody who wanted to leave the EU it was folly to vote for a candidate who had always wanted to stay in the EU, and I do not exempt myself from that criticism because I decided to trust Theresa May and I lent her my vote here in Maidenhead. Never again, never again will I vote for any Tory candidate in any public election, rather I will try to vote to help destroy that party dominated by liars, cheats hypocrites and traitors like her. But while we dupes continue to vote supporters of the EU into Parliament of course they will do whatever they can do to promote its interests, including keeping us in it.

    These are troubled times when even ordinarily regular decent people who happen to believe in the EU have been persuaded to violate the democracy of our country.

    Cornyn has wanted to leave all his life the reason he has done a complete U turn in one word Scotland.

    He knows he has to win more seats in Scotland to have any chance of winning. However, the SNP have Scotland in their pockets. The reason the SNP have Scotland is they have lied, cheated and deceived Labour and Lib Dem voters to say they want to be at the heart of Europe and nobody has challenged them.

    Quite frankly it is a disgrace the SNP have gone unchallenged. I will explain why and how we win the Scotland debate but we have to bring it out in the open.

    An independent Scotland will need private sector and household surpluses of around 12%. Which means the Scottish government will need to run budget deficits of 12%. As the government budget deficit = the non government sectors surplus an accounting fact.

    The SNP know this of course which is not a problem if you have your own currency as Japan and China have shown for years. Running higher deficits at times and debts to GDP ratio of 250%. The budget deficit is the non government sectors surplus and the debt is just that surplus moved into bonds so households and businesses earn more interest in their savings.

    So to get a 12% surplus to businesses and households they can slash taxes, business rates VAT etc or increase government spending. The only constraint is inflation whatever they do as there has to be enough skills and real resources to absorb the 12% surplus. So that there is not too much money chasing too few goods and services.

    However, being at the heart of Europe will never allow that and the SNP know it. So they lie cheat and deceived everyone because it is independence at all costs. A faux independence that is being offered to Scottish voters.

    Yet, they go unchallenged because both Labour and the Tories have lied about deficits and debts for decades. They led voters up the garden path saying government accounts operate like a household budget. When the complete opposite is true.

    An independent Scotland at the heart of Europe cannot give households and businesses a surplus higher than 3%. They cannot save more than 60% of GDP. An independent Scotland needs 4 times that to do what they want to do.

    The growth commission produced by the SNP. Was a blueprint to join the Euro. Because of the neoliberal fiscal rules at the heart of Europe even if Scotland avoided the Euro being at the heart of Europe means Brussels will still control fiscal and monetary policy.

    That is how you beat the SNP. You expose the lies in their argument let the Scottish people know what 3% deficits actually mean for households and businesses. What it means for their savings as they are slashed and also explain as part of the union they have been allowed to run 8% household and business surpluses which are higher than other parts of the UK.

    Being at the heart of Europe would mean Scottish households and businesses surplus would be cut by 5% of GDP. Economic suicide and why the growth commission recommended slashing this surplus in the report so they can join the Euro.

    Being a member of the Euro and running budget deficits of less than 3% is insanity. It is permanent austerity. Scottish households need to hold higher surpluses or the IMF will land at Glasgow airport and sell off the place to the highest bidder like they did with Greece.

    During the course of the 2016 Referendum, I led the Vote Leave effort in Hook. During the first week, I handed out Vote Leave literature at the railway station and colleagues did the same outside the local Tesco, in the market square and at the Community Centre. During the next three weeks, I delivered first Vote Leave literature the Leave.EU literature to every household in Hook. We didn’t particularly encourage discussions because our main objective was to deliver the literature.

    Neverless, people did buttonhole me to express their opinion. There was no nuanced discussion about the type of Brexit; people either wanted Leave or wanted Remain. It was impossible to detect any hostility to a No Deal Brexit per se although unfortunately there were several people who had been affected by Project Fear.

    The other big lie doing the rounds, propagated by Ms Amber Rudd among others, is that the 21 people who have lost the Conservative Whip are “moderates”. People who are content, indeed happy, that the four nations of the United Kingdom would become provinces in a Federal European SuperState are not moderates; they are fanatics.

    “If it comes to a request for an extension, I think the vast majority of countries around the table would prefer that there not be an extension. We would like to see this dealt with. If the UK is leaving it should leave on 31st October.”

    Agreed

    The problem for the EU is that if somehow we were forced to remain it would really do a very major amount of damage to their credibility and kick off all kinds of ramifications across the 28 . With the state of things as they are, Eurozone problems and Germany teetering on the brink of recession it could deliver the killer blow. Better to just let us go

    When Mrs May repeatedly said that “no deal was better than a bad deal” who of the Remainers in her Cabinet, and who of the “great and good” (eg Clarke and Soames) contradicted her publicly – at once?

    It is irrelevant anyway.
    MORE IMPORTANTLY nobody was told before, during or right after the 2017 General Election that many of the newly elected MPs were going to ignore their manifestos and their constituents and work to prevent us leaving the EU.
    They intended to work against democracy, so why did they not inform the electorate of their plans? They were duplicitous in their actions and grotesquely unbecoming of a Member of Parliament.
    If there is need of a reason to hold another General Election that is it. They lied to get themselves voted.

    Is Boris to loose to The Establishment, and his family

    Is Boris going to let us down

    Is he thinking he only needs to remove the Backstop

    Is he going to wheel out the dreaded W. A

    This is the man that walked out of the cabinet saying , well we all know what he called it, he was right too.

    So why did he buckle at the third time of asking, how could he betray us then, what pressure was he put under ?

    It must be remembered that so did Ress Mogg, both these men knew exactly what it stood for

    How could they do it, how could anyone let alone those two

    So are we realy going to get out, ?

    He has made a start , a great start, by sacking those that did not vote for his government,

    Will he let them back, if he does let them back, we are slaves forever and the big man in the sky will be our best help

    We do need a G A , if Boris does manage to do a quick one, I hope .

    My trust and loyalty will stay with Farage, he alone has never given up never faltered for 25 years, I can not see him weaken now

    Yes, no deal is better than a bad deal – but today’s newspapers show that Boris Johnson is pursuing a bad deal. He is morphing into Theresa May. A Northern Ireland backstop (against Article 6 of the 1800 Act of Union, which guaranteed Ireland would never be separately treated in any treaties the UK signed); £39bn that we don’t actually owe; our fishing rights handed over again; UK civil servants never to pay tax on their EU pensions (why do I pay tax?); some alignment on taxation; alignment on state aid; alignment on environmental and labour regulations; the EU court to decide migration issues, etc… This so-called Conservative Party just needs to die.
