    And as long as the Ireland Protocol is alive and not voted down by Stormont, the Euro Court of Justice presides. That will stick in the craw of a few Brexshits looking beyond 31 December.

    Well the first speed bump where they are foaming at the mouth at the "restrictions" of the transition period. The UK to wants “take up its flag” at the next WTO meeting in March ahead of 31 December. EU membership is like a train with 28 passengers. Brexit = UK wanting to get off the train. Brexit Transition = UK them strapped to the trains roof and keeping up, but outside in the cold until the station appears on 31 December and the first opportunity to get off for good.

    The UK "a world leader in fiscal transparency"???? Pigs fucking arse Javid. - WAB the most significant piece of legislation in 50 years rammed through HOC with no debate and with no "Regulatory Impact Assessment" under your direction ignoring your own Treasury's Green Book Section 1.4 titled, "Treasury Approval Processes and the Regulatory Impact Assessment" - OBR tried hard to be transparent but not allowed to tell anyone. Probably the reason why the OBR Chair is calling it quits over this. OBR's economic numbers (not good ones) available pre election but then not released until after the election under direction of the Government. Restated March 2019 forecast - charts and tables 16th December 2019 "We wrote to the Treasury on 29 October about our intention to publish the restated forecast on 7 November, but on Cabinet Secretary advice we delayed publication until after the General Election. For transparency, we have therefore now, at the earliest opportunity, published the restatement in precisely the form that it was signed off by the Budget Responsibility Committee on 6 November."

    So let me get this right...You spend a few years plotting to be King, but that requires putting the nation to the sword - so you lie your guts out driving a wedge down the middle of a nation already divided - while all the time claiming you have no homicidal intentions - then upon getting the paperwork rammed through giving you the means to undertake this bloody atrocity - you first plead with the nation to come together - either so they don't put up a fight or are easier to round up - there upon you finally put them all to the sword. Yeah that will work..well in England at least...the other 3 have wised up. According to a leaked memo, PM will call for national healing and unity on Jan 31

    Yes "Done" but only thing "Gone" is "recinding A.50," the "prohibition" on negotiating FTA's with other countries and having a "say" in the EU anymore, yet all EU laws and regulations still apply. The earliest the UK can Leave the EU is midnight 31 December 2020. Even poor Laura K wetting her pants with glee forgets that little technicality. Fuck she is an annoying bitch. You may have noticed I haven't mentioned her name now for a month, today I cracked. Anyway it clearly says leaving doesn't happen until December in that "oven ready meal" that Boris is so proud of, but hates talking about its ingrediants. What is it with these people? Can't they fucking read?

    For balance post some stupidity and give some poor deluded Brexit bugger a plug anyway. His will be the first trade block and single market in the history of world trade where the participating countries are all at opposite ends of the earth. That's before the bit where what ties this block together is the English language. Is there some hidden mental hospital issue in the UK??? "The present Single Market is 500m people, although this is in fact for the EU28, not the EU27...The US & UK added together bring us immediately to 400m, while adding Canada, Australia and New Zealand in fact takes us well over this target." The Europeans may be our brethren, but the Anglosphere are our kin

    Well some breaking news At PMQs Bumface just gave the DUP's Donaldson an "emphatic" assurance and guarantee that "unfettered access" applies not just to NI goods going to GB, but also GB goods entering NI. Just in case you haven't kept up, the progression has been. 1. No checks guaranteed, ring me up and I will sort it out if your stopped. 2. There will only be checks if we don't get a trade deal with EU. 3. Now today a guarantee of "unfettered access" which means what? You won't be "chained" or "shackled" when you cross? Anyway his oven ready deal says there will be checks so fuck knows why he keeps lying? Maybe he is worried he will lose the art unless he regularly practises? I love these EU PowerPoint slides of what is in the oven.

    These EU publications may help judge if this EU response is harsh or not? This is about mutual recognition of Conformity Assessment where Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) are agreements that benefit industry by providing easier access to that "Conformity Assessment." This is a bilateral issue and impacts upon both UK businesses and businesses in each of EU27 member states. MRAs lay down the conditions under which each of the parties (UK & EU) accept "conformity assessment" results (e.g. testing, certification etc) performed by the other parties designated "Conformity Assessment Bodies" (CABs) to show compliance. MRAs will include relevant lists of designated laboratories, inspection bodies etc in both countries/member states or otherwise known as "Notified Bodies" Naturaly people will be making comparisons with agreements the EU has with many countries, including ones that don't have EU FTAs i.e. US and Australia. It seems this not exactly something new either. The EU advised industry and all stakeholders two years ago in this Document about "conformity assessment" procedures and 'Notified Bodies" as a consequence of the UK leaving the EU and potentialy with No Deal. Pretty odd for anyone in UK to automatically think mutual recognition of "conformity assessment" is somehow a given when negotiating a FTA. It is the first thing on the table. It applies to every other country. This is the simple stuff and as you can see very prescriptive and no wriggle room if that is the UK's intention This is not to be confused with mutual recognition of "regulatory outcomes", which is not in play here. Other than to say if this is not agreed, then "conformity assessment" all becomes rather moot. At the moment they are miles apart on that. Lot of wheel spinning happening here.
