Britain's Davis vows no post-Brexit 'dystopia'

David Davis

'She is too weak to face down the fanatics in her own party and to deliver a final deal that protects jobs and the economy'.

Dutch politicians, including Pieter Omtzigt, the parliament's Brexit rapporteur, has said his country is only preparing for the stated policy of the United Kingdom government - the United Kingdom outside the customs union, and that if we need hundreds of new customs and agricultural inspectors, the British are going to need thousands.

While insisting they back May's leadership, the Tories link their support to her delivering the kind of decisive split that they want Brexit to be. "These are not our numbers, they are the Government's numbers".

Much has been made, for example, of the prospect of a UK-US trade deal that could see chlorinated chickens from the US - now barred from Europe - being accepted in Britain.

He claimed the points strengthen "the Government's negotiating position" and underline "that we are not going to be a rule-taker, we are going to be a rule-maker".

Yet this could be the previous year British consumers are protected by these generous rules.

Have full regulatory autonomy, with the ability to change laws and rules after exiting the European Union, when it should not longer be a "rule-taker". May's spokesperson denied the government was seeking an open ended period.

It was sent by the European Research Group of Tory backbenchers, headed by Jacob Rees-Mogg, and was signed by Stone MP Sir Bill Cash and Walsall North MP Eddie Hughes.

The lawmakers' letter was dated February 16.

The Brexit war cabinet will try to thrash out a common position on future trade arrangements at an away day at Chequers on Thursday.

Talks scheduled to last up to eight hours will begin with an afternoon meeting, followed by drinks and then dinner, as the Prime Minister battles to reach an agreement between her ministers.

But May told parliament that she wanted people to stay.

The letter published on Wednesday called on Mrs May to ensure that Britain had "full regulatory autonomy" from the European Union as well as being free to negotiate and sign deals with other countries.

It also states that the transitional phase-or implementation period-that's now being negotiated must meet their own criteria and be based on World Trade Organization principles.

Although no-one suggests he's wilfully leading Britain into a future of food shortages, grounded aircraft and 17-mile traffic queues to clear customs at the Dover port, the UK's alleged lack of clarity during negotiations seems to have business giants and European Union members anxious.

From an ecommerce perspective, one thing that requires clarity is how long the Brexit EU transition period will last.

She says there will be no rerun of the referendum.

"In the event that one side or the other wants to change regulations, it is imperative that it does not lead to "unnecessary" barriers to trade being thrown up", Mr Davis reasoned.
