Brexit: Boris Johnson puts EU into a tailspin! (4k)

The Remainer press is giving all the air time and column inches it can, to anyone who will condemn Boris Johnson for taking action to protect the interests of the UK.

As MPs gird their loins for the second reading of the UK Internal Markets Bill in the House of Commons today, all we hear is the EU and UK Remainer press screeching on about Boris breaking international law.

And the press coverage has been so one-sided that the UK Brexit negotiator, Lord David Frost, felt compelled to go to Twitter to put the UK case.

And thus far I’ve seen no mainstream press outlet referring to his statements.

But they appear to be hanging on every word from Barnier and the pro-EU campaigners in the UK.

Oh, and David Cameron is the latest former UK Prime Minister to surface and start voicing his concerns over the actions Boris Johnson is taking.

Then there’s the Brexiteer Tory MP and former Attorney General, Geoffrey Cox QC, who has also come out against Boris despite him being a Brexiteer, and is therefore getting a lot of attention.

But a quick comment on that. One of the things that’s giving Boris the legal basis for what he’s doing, is Clause 38 of the Withdrawal Agreement Act 2020. Something I’ve talked about before.

And Clause 38, the ‘notwithstanding clause, says that the UK parliament is sovereign and that, within the UK, it overrides EU law.

That Act received Royal Assent on the 23rd of January 2020.

Geoffrey Cox was the Attorney General (one of the law officers of the Crown) between the 9th of July 2018 and the 13th of February 2020.

This is what Tory MP Steve Baker Tweeted out on it:

“Geoffrey Cox was Attorney General from 9 July 2018 to 13 February 2020

“So he was the Attorney General who allowed the “notwithstanding” clause in the EU (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020″

So, didn’t Cox know what the likely outcome for such a clause would be?

Anyway, let’s get back to Michel Barnier and Lord Frost.

Barnier put out two Tweets over the weekend saying:

“Protocol on IE/NI is not a threat to the integrity of the UK. We agreed this delicate compromise with @BorisJohnson & his gov in order to protect peace & stability on island of Ireland. We could not have been clearer about the consequences of #Brexit

“Sticking to facts is also essential. A case in point: the EU is not refusing to list the UK as a third country for food imports (SPS). To be listed, we need to know in full what a country’s rules are, incl. for imports. The same objective process applies to all listed countries”

But as has been pointed out. The UK is not changing anything after the Brexit Implementation Period ends, and if we do then the WTO and the EU will be informed first in plenty of time.

This is what all third countries that trade with the EU do. So why single the UK out for ‘special’ treatment at this stage in the talks?

And here’s what Lord Frost said in a series of seven Tweets in reply to Barnier’ talk of ‘facts’. Something that most of the press seem to have overlooked.

Brexit: Boris Johnson puts EU into a tailspin

It is predominantly aimed at UK politics from a centre right perspective, but delves into all areas of global politics where appropriate. It also aims to promote the concept of an independent and sovereign UK taking its own place in the world, post Brexit.


  1. Sorry to inform everyone but the EU cancer is still in the UK. Covid-19 signs funded by the "EU Regional Development Fund" plaster my town centre and I've just seen a job advert for a job funded by the "European Social Fund" – an EU organisation. Either we're running down the money the EU should have given to us or we are being invaded still by the EU and its propaganda.

  2. When is England going to take back there evil Act of War upon the United States? Take back Harry and Meghan immediately and we will stop sending free rafts to France for the migrants to cross over and we will even stop giving out pamphlets showing the amazing free taxpayer-funded four star hotel rooms that await them. If you take them back immediately we will even stop selling the French fisherman cannons and give you fair trade deal. All this for the low low price of taking back Harry and Meghan. You're not using the Tower of London for anything anymore anyways. Put them there

  3. Fortunately Boris has a large enough majority for these rejoiniacs (ex-remainiacs) not to be able to do anything to thwart the Bill.
    Come on Boris…..get this Bill SORTED!!
    Let's go WTO ????

  4. All this BILE from the EU Mandarins should serve as an indicator to anyone foolish enough to think about leaving the forth Reich . . . shake yourselves Europeans before it's too late . . . And salute the return of the YELLOW VESTS in France , the French police are beating / gassing the crap out of them as usual , nothing about it in UK media ? ?

  5. Those that understand brexit have noted both the Barnier frost et al tweets.
    We get to view both sides. The Uk government is correct and this loophole needed protection against. Well done Boris and frost.

    Us Brexiteers do our due diligence.

  6. As quoted by Hannah the inclusion of this clause was not allowed because of THE UNION ACT OF 1801 WHERE TRADE WITHIN THE UNION is sacrosanct and cannot be interfered with. The EU might be up in arms but they were the bullies in this situation, they never learn that we will not be blackmailed or bullied. This is their last hoorah to stop BREXIT, have already written to my MP expressing my views.

  7. IS here really protecting the interests of the UK though? His shutting down of the economy, and his attitude to the the covid debacle says otherwise, NONE of these people are fit for purpose.
