The submarine, as known several british media, has finally emerged. After three months of silence resolved, Theresa May has finally talked about the Brexit and given a few indications about its position before the start of negotiations to hammer out the final divorce with the european Union.
in Front of the activists in ecstasy, gathered in Birmingham for the annual convention of the conservative party, she was promised a bright future within a United Kingdom “fully independent and sovereign” and set a date. His government will invoke article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty “before the end of march, 2017″. This should lead in principle to an exit from the EU, after two years of negotiations, before the next european elections in spring 2019.
“Whether we like it or not, the country voted to leave the european Union. And that means that we will leave the EU”, she hammered in front of an audience with the angels. The unfortunate few conservatives in favour of keeping within the EU have clearly not made the trip.
“We will leave the EU as a single United Kingdom”
The new First minister, arrives at 10 Downing Street, without election and through the resignation shock of David Cameron following the referendum of 23 June, where 52 % of the British have chosen to leave the EU, has taken a position very firm. Vis-à-vis his party, Parliament and European.
She and she alone is in control of what is probably the most important decision of the United Kingdom since the Second world War. The triggering of article 50 and the subsequent negotiations will be exclusively with “government”, and certainly not the Parliament (the majority of whose members supported the retention within the EU).
The trouble-makers tempted to call for the organization of a second referendum or delay the process of Brexit are warned : it would be “an insult to the intelligence of the British”. the “let’s Go ! The result of the referendum was clear. It was legitimate. It was the largest vote for a change that this country has ever known. Brexit means Brexit and we’re going to make it a success”, she said. It now seems almost impossible to believe, but in June, Theresa May voted to remain within the EU. The nationalists have also taken to their grade. If Scotland and Northern Ireland, who have largely voted in favour of staying within the EU, will be “consulted”, “we will negotiate as a single United Kingdom and we will leave the european Union as a single United Kingdom”.
“This will not be a Norwegian model, not a swiss model,”
The bokeh looked after around the type of Brexit desired by the British has not been totally dispelled. But Theresa May has given a few indications about the place where it will be placed at the beginning of the negotiations, which will need to undo forty years of links. It aims very high. Ideally, she would like to get the butter and at least the money of the butter. Theresa May advocated a totally agree again with the european Union, which would ignore the last forty years, and the existing models of non-member countries but associated with the EU, one way or another. “This will not be a Norwegian model, not a swiss model”, countries that have access to the single market in exchange for the freedom of movement, she warned.
“We will make this country independent and sovereign. We will decide ourselves how we control immigration. And we will be free to adopt our own laws”, she declared, excluding any continuation within the european Court of justice. It has also announced the introduction of a “the Great Law of abrogation” of the 1972 act which incorporated the european legislation into the national. The Parliament will be free to keep the parts of european law which is most convenient.
excluding de facto the free movement Theresa May seems to be heading towards what some call a “Brexit hard”, which would mean a full release of the single market, and perhaps also of the customs union, and negotiating free trade treaties with the blow-by-blow, in the world trade Organization (WTO), a country-by-country.
However, it has also called for an agreement with “which implies a free trade for goods and services. I want that he gives to british companies the maximum freedom to do business and operate in the single market” and vice versa.
The First minister therefore puts the bar at the top before the hard and long negotiations ahead with the 27 member countries of the EU. Theresa May did not hide that, “as in any negotiation, there will be some compromises and trade”, but she said that she was confident. The United Kingdom, “fifth world power”, is on its way, she said, to become a “United Kingdom”global, regardless of the meaning of this expression.
