WE NOW HOLDWHIP HANDLE OVER EU
GEORGE JC MEACOCK Chalfont St Peter
I do not see the need for any leave plan! All we need is to trigger leave now and revert to being a truly independent state with no attachments to the undemocratic EU commission.
There are too many people advocating halfway houses (May included) comparing their aims with Switzerland or Norway or other similar nations.
Stop the money we are paying to Brussels, it is only a waste, and start replacing its grants with the same money instead to our own people.
Start implementing the points system (Australian style) with people we wish to work here being issued with employment permits.
The EU can not get us to move fast enough for them, so this plan can only appeal to them. When Cameron announced the Referendum he said our choice would be to remain or leave the EU altogether.
That is exactly what we voted for and too many people try to ignore the altogether bit! If the EU wants to be difficult, we can be also. Time to remember it is now we who hold the whip handle. The EU’s day is over as far as we are concerned. We want to continue free trade without tariffs but without political strings attached either. If it accepts our terms we can continue as before. Governments have no proper place in trading.
Disputes or agreements we make should now be with individual governments whether part of the EU or not. We intend to work with Europe on this basis in continued friendship with individual countries in it, but never again with the hated EU Commission!
I hope I have made my case clear enough. I am not going to sign up to any other plan, as I suspect it could be one of those halfway houses we do not want.
