Frightening – JUDGE’S COMMENT AT TRIAL
Labour and Tory remainers aim to revoke Article 50 as May faces vote humiliation ‘Lure for foreign criminals’ warning in no-deal spectre
AS LABOUR PLOTS VOTE SABOTAGE
it, but don’t organise it. What we stand for is to make sure our children grow up in a society that is not full of hatred. I’ve got no problem with legal immigration if we are helping people from war torn countries, like we did with the Jews in World War Two.
“But people are leaving their own countries just to have the benefits of our country. UKIP is the future. We are not racist. My girlfriend’s dad comes from Iran. Throughout our movement we have black people, Sikhs, Muslims. I am not racist. I have lots of Muslim friends. I have no problem with them.”
Thomas’s pal Goddard, meanwhile, was freed by police later and given just two hours to leave the area inside the M25.
He read out the details of his bail to supporters at a pub in Holborn, London, before returning home to Leicester.
Referring to the Home Secretary and Met Police Commissioner, he said in a video posted online: “Sajid Javid is involved, Cressida Dick is involved. I have to leave the area of the M25 within two hours or they are going to put me back in there. I have to sign on at the police station every Monday and Friday.
“I have to live at home, I’m not allowed in the consitituency area of Anna Soubry or any of her workplaces or press events.”
As supporters chanted “Soubry is a Nazi”, defiant Goddard added: “I’ll just go do something in Manchester or Leicester. This is all about silencing people.” He even claimed Ms Soubry orchestrated his arrest, saying: “She is not even a member of Cabinet and she has done this – it is all her. This is gonna open up the biggest can of worms ever because of what she has done. Everyone who has ever been called a Nazi should report it to police.”
Yellow vest protesters had gatecrashed the People’s Assembly Against Austerity rally, attended by thousands in Trafalgar Square yesterday. Thomas was there – filming himself and mixing with anti-austerity campaigners.
Bottles were thrown, one man was arrested and an EU flag was burned in nearby Parliament Square.
Ms Soubry, meanwhile, branded the yellow vest movement’s leaders “racist, fascist and a threat to democracy”.
She said: “Every now and then far-right groups crawl out from whatever rock they’ve been hiding under and latch on to an issue to try and spread their views. These people are no different.” BRITAIN will become a magnet for foreign gangsters if it crashes out of the EU with no deal.
Crooks know that the European Arrest Warrant would no longer apply without a Brexit agreement, making extradition much harder.
The warning comes from the House of Commons Library in a 212-page report to MPs in advance of Tuesday’s big vote.
It quotes Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Richard Martin as saying: “Criminal groups may already be thinking that if certain powers do not exist there are opportunities for them to operate here.”
The report also warns that British doctors may be unable to work in Europe and that there could be gridlock in the southeast because of customs delays.
On the plus side the UK would become an “independent coastal state”, giving fishermen the run of catches for 200 miles.
YELLOW PEST Thomas in thick of London demo LABOUR is getting ready to unite with Tory Remainers to sabotage Brexit.And a highly-placed No10 source said: “No Brexit is now more likely than No Deal.”Theresa May is pinning her hopes on an 11th-hour promise from the EU tomorrow that the controversial Irish backstop will be only temporary.But as this pledge will not be legally binding the PM faces certain defeat when MPs vote on her withdrawal deal on Tuesday.Tory Brexiteers predict she will lose by more than 200.Jeremy Corbyn would prefer to force a General Election by winning a vote of no confidence in the Government. But Tory loyalists, rebels and the DUP will bury differences to stop him.Mrs May, pictured above right, told today’s Sunday Express: “I face a Labour leader more concerned with playing politics than acting in the best interests of our country. He wants to recklessly sow the seeds of division in a bid to boost his own career.”Plan B for Mr Corbyn is to stop No Deal, which would be the result of MPs dumping Mrs
May’s deal. That would mean uniting with Tory Remainers, SNP and Lib Dems to revoke Article 50, which takes us out of the EU on March 29.Mrs May added: “With MPs unwilling to face the uncertainty of no deal and with no other offer on the table, we will risk not leaving the EU at all.”The Parliamentary process for scrapping Article 50 is not clear, but senior Tory and Labour MPs believe it is achievable. A Labour source said: “That is the direction this is now heading.”The EU is adamant the deal on the table is the only one on offer. And nothing would delight its leaders more than for the UK to ditch Brexit. A senior Whitehall source said: “All the EU has to do is sit on its hands while we tear ourselves apart.”Even if Mrs May miraculously won the vote, Article 50 might still have to be postponed.There are doubts whether six essential pieces of Brexit legislation and 300 smaller changes can be railroaded through Parliament in the 75 days left before we leave.A No10 source said: “We will do all it takes to get legislation through in time.”
