‘Theresa’s way’: Roll over and accept whatever Brexit the EU wants for the UK

Theresa May’s Brexit team is said to have raised no objections to a Norway-style transition deal [Image: EPA].

Isn’t it nice to know your government is keeping you fully informed?

That’s sarcasm, by the way.

This smells like a closed-doors agreement that was going to be sprung on us later because David Davis and Theresa May knew it would infuriate pretty much everyone.

It tells us that the EU has dictated the kind of departure the UK will follow, and the Tory team meekly rolled over and accepted it.

That’s not the British way. It’s pathetic. It’s weak.

It’s Theresa’s way.

The UK has already “agreed in principle” to a Norway-style Brexit transition period in which it accepts all EU rules with no power to shape them, a senior figure in Brussels has told The Independent.

A key member of the European Parliament’s Brexit team said British negotiators raised no objections to the plans, which would mean accepting free movement and customs union rules, and falling under the European Court’s jurisdiction.

The suggestion that Theresa May’s team has all but swallowed the transition proposal from Brussels will anger Conservative MPs, who believe it leaves Britain a “vassal state” for some two years after Brexit.

    Is that what the Brexit people mean by “taking back control” – to me it is quite obviously losing control, and paying a lot of money to lose it.

      She’s putting us through the hardest Brexit she can manage and still you call her a Remainer?
      Seek help, Barry.

    they probably have got fed up of waiting for May Davis etc to come up with proper policies etc for leaving. they also know that loads of leavers now think otherwise. were there another referendum they probably think the remainer’s would win this time. so they’ve taken it into their own hands to offer this.. good thing or not, (and im not sure if its either) at least it gets the talks on a different footing where they can move on.better than nothing at all anyway
