UK relax border checks on EU goods for six months after end of the "Transition Period".
Thursday 9th July 2020
Not quite Brexit on the 1st of January 2021
Although the Article 50 Transition Period officially ends on the 31st of December 2020 the government has succumbed to industry pressure to bring in the true Brexit in phases - over the first 6 months of 2021.
"The UK government has dropped plans for full border checks on goods coming in from the EU from 1 January 2021 over fears of the economic impact of coronavirus."
"The announcement of a three-phased plan for Brexit border checks was welcomed by industry leaders but represents the most dramatic change to international trading since 1993 when the single market was introduced."
The UK informed the EU that it will not extend the transition period - the deadline had already passed.
The UK stated that the border delays were instigated as a “temporary and pragmatic” response to accommodate the current strains on businesses as a result of the Covid-19 crisis."
"Further delays of full controls could be put in place if there is a second wave of coronavirus, sources have indicated."
The government plan involves a phased implementation of controls in January, April and July next year."
To explain the significance of the above actions a short background is included below:
Why we are Leaving the EU.
Against all the odds the UK voted to leave the EU on the 16th June 2016, neither the British "Establishment" nor the EU have accepted the result and they have worked together tirelessly ever since to prevent the UK leaving the EU.
To put things into perspective. Only about 8% of UK companies actually trade with the EU which represents about 13% of GDP (these figure could have reduced considerably since the Covid-19 pandemic).
For the "privilege" of trading with the EU the UK pays membership fees, underwrites loans facilities to new member states, participates in member state bailouts, provides Foreign Aid on behalf of the EU at a rate of 0.7 of GDP, it pays VAT and Tariffs on goods imported into Britain from anywhere in the world - those goods are consequently priced above that available for the same goods in the rest of the world.
The EU is a protectionist bloc designed to benefit German Manufacturing and French Agriculture. The UK has a trade deficit with the EU of around £65 billion - so it has to borrow money to trade with it.
Respective governments and elected representatives have been transferring UK sovereignty to the unelected EU Commissions in Brussels, piece-by-piece since 1973.
We live under a system known as "Freedom of Movement" of Capital, Goods, Services and Workers - shared with 27 other members. Anyone from the EU can come to the UK and live and work here - we can also work in other EU countries but the ratio is about 3:1 for people coming to Britain.
We live under laws made in Brussels by a system of qualified majority voting - these laws have primacy over our domestic laws and can even overturn Acts of Parliament.
Our Parliament has accepted five EU Treaties into UK law since the 1973 European Communities Act (ECA) - the latest of which (Lisbon Treaty (2007)) installed a new EU Constitution into British law which has primacy over our own Common Law.
Throughout the last 47 years our governments and MPs have insisted that we are a sovereign country - in order to gain or remain in power - whilst simultaneously selling the UK to foreign powers in Europe, behind the backs of the British public.
The above explains the reasons for the 2016 vote to leave the EU.
The Implementation of Article 50
The reason that it has so far taken four years to get to this point is that the UK changed Prime Ministers - twice; Theresa May replaced David Cameron (the PM who called the 2016 Referendum) - in 2016; and was replaced herself by Boris Johnson in 2019.
Theresa May delayed the implementation of Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty (2007), before enacting its provisions to allow the UK to leave the EU. That covered the period from 2016 to 2019 since Article 50 allows for 2 years of negotiations between the UK - added to which was the initial delay.
In July 2018 May negotiated a deal with Germany's Angela Merkel (the de facto EU leader) - behind the backs of her Brexit negotiators, her own cabinet and the British people.
The core of the new Treaty to replace ECA (1973) was presented to her Cabinet at Chequers (the PM's country retreat), where, under duress, they were required to sign-off the deal without even having full sight of its contents. The Brexit Secretary David Davis and the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson subsequently resigned.
A British Europhile Civil Servant - Ollie Robbins - completed the new Treaty documentation - the Withdrawal Agreement. Which also contained a Political Declaration and a "trap" to prevent the UK leaving without the permission of the EU - known as the "Irish Backstop", plus a two year Transition Period.
May made three attempts to get the Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration ratified in Parliament but all attempts failed.
In the end Theresa May was replaced by Boris Johnson who managed to convince the EU to drop the Irish "Backstop" provision and allow negotiations to form a free-trade agreement between the UK and EU under the provision of a one-year Transition Period.
Johnson was up against a Parliament which was now overtly pro-EU and attempted to block any way of the UK leaving EU without a suitable (EU controlling) deal - including new legislation to prevent a "No Deal" outcome to any negotiation - which was designed to give advantage to the EU.
Johnson challenged the opposition to a vote to call a General Election - initially refused but then agreed.
The new election took place on the 12th December 2019. Johnson won the Election with an 80-seat majority on a "Get Brexit Done" ticket - the necessary legislation was enacted and the UK officially left the EU (repealed ECA (1973)) at the end of January 2020 and entered the current one-year Transition Period. During which the UK is required to abide by all EU legislation without any representation - courtesy of May's new Treaty.
The EU and the oppositions parties have persistently called for an extension, in order to delay the UK departure for as long as possible, but the 2020 deadline for an extension passed on July 1st.
So, this is where we are - Boris has had to concede a little - ostensibly because of the present Covid-19 emergency but he must not waiver and fall into a full blown extension. That would cost the UK billions upon billions because if he concedes a further extension it will require the UK to be part of helping to bailout the EU.

The "Cancel Culture" is expanding to include the end of all free-speech and any opposition to the view dictated by the Marxist extreme Left.
"Some 150 writers, academics and activists - including authors JK Rowling, Salman Rushdie and Margaret Atwood - have signed an open letter denouncing the "restriction of debate".
"They say they applaud a recent "needed reckoning" on racial justice but argue it has fuelled stifling of open debate.
"The letter denounces "a vogue for public shaming and ostracism" and "a blinding moral certainty".
Several signatories have been attacked for comments that caused offence."
Unfortunately, it appears to blame the far-right for the restrictions on free-speech and the "Cancel Culture" - when in fact it belongs to the extreme-Left Marxists.
Perhaps the letter would not have been so well received by such diverse luminaries had the blame for attempting to end free speech had been placed on the Marxists - where it rightly belongs.
The letter gives a number of examples:
"In recent months, a number of figures have been shamed online for making comments considered offensive by some, including on topics of race, gender and sexuality."
"In some cases, employers took action against the individual after sustained and targeted criticism." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-53330105
The letter is reproduced here: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8500911/JK-Rowling-joins-150-authors-academics-calling-end-cancel-culture.html
This general movement towards preventing free speech is nothing less than an updated version of Mao Zedong's "Cultural Revolution" (1966-1976). In the present case an attempt to change the identity of the West through censorship - by destroying what Mao described as the "Old Fours": "Old Customs", "Old Culture", "Old Habits" and "Old Ideas".
Implementation of the Cultural Changes
Mao's motives were to get rid of his opponents "Mao called on the nation’s youth to purge the “impure” elements of Chinese society and revive the revolutionary spirit that had led to victory in the civil war 20 years earlier and the formation of the People’s Republic of China"
"All of history, in short, was to be seen as useless. This was the central meaning of Cultural Revolution: That China was going to destroy every trace of its bourgeois past and replace it with a new culture built on the principles of Maoism and Marxism."
"The people carried with them a Little Red Book, a plastic red collection of Mao's ideologies. 'Yu even recalled reading and studying it with her friends while on commutes as though it were a Holy Bible.' Streets, historical sites, and even babies were given new, revolutionary-sounding names. Libraries were destroyed, books were burned, and temples were torn down to the ground."
"Historical sites were ripped apart. In Shandong, the Red Guards attacked the Temple of Confucius, destroying one of China’s most historically significant buildings; in Tibet, soldiers forced Buddhists priests to destroy their own monasteries at gunpoint."
"A new world, Mao promised, would rise from the ashes of the old one; one that swept away every hint of elitism and class inequality."
"Schools were shut down altogether. The University entrance exam was abolished and replaced with a new system that pushed students into factories, villages, and military units."
"The people of China were urged to get rid of every bourgeoisie in their midst including scholars, traditionalists, or educators. People were accused by their neighbors of counter-revolutionary crimes and forced them to endure public humiliation or even death." https://allthatsinteresting.com/cultural-revolution
Once we have been silenced and enough have "kowtowed" ('taken the knee') or otherwise shown their loyalty to the mob the easier it is for them to take control.
Welcome to 1984:
"Every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered.”
“And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped.” George Orwell.
It is now the time to stop the funding of these groups by the Marxist organisation at home and abroad.

EU and Croatia
Ursula Van der Leyen had publicly backed a Croatian political party for an upcoming election.
"Ursula von der Leyen, the German president of the European Commission, appeared with other centre-right politicians in a promotional video clip posted by the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) party.
That happened ahead of Sunday's vote, which the conservatives won. The European Commission expressed regrets that Von der Leyen breached the code of conduct for Commission"
"Von der Leyen was identified as the European Commission president in the video and was filmed standing in front of a European Union flag. Critics fear the video for a party of the same European political family as Van der Leyen's impacted Sunday's election outcome.
First official results suggest that Croatia's ruling conservatives overwhelmingly won the vote. "https://www.worthynews.com/51298-eus-executive-regrets-its-presidents-support-for-croatian-ruling-party
The reason for the embarrassment stems from the fact that the EU has developed through stealth during its entire existence, while trying to build a single borderless European entity devoid of individual nationality. Throughout its existence the EU (EEC/EC) has maintained the illusion that each Member State has remained sovereign whilst simultaneously working with each respective parliament to transfer its sovereignty to central control in Brussels - behind the backs of its own population.
Throughout, they have claimed that its ambition was to bring about "ever closer union" between European Nations - but without stating that the Nations would no longer exist in its final manifestation.
So for the EU Commission President to publicly endorse a political party or leader in any member state has been carefully avoided.
In the latest video released by Meghan and Harry - Harry is beginning to resemble a hostage reciting the dictates, mantra and propaganda of his left-wing captor(s). I guess his SAS training wasn't able to save him.
In endorsing BLM, they endorse a Marxist Revolutionary organisation which is using Racism as a political weapon to undermine the United States and the UK, and destroy their respective history, as Marxists always do. In this particular case, the destruction of history is being extended to the Commonwealth. BLM is basically extorting money with menaces.
Unless Harry and his wife explicitly separate their support from BLM (who are also associated with the Anarchist organisation Antifa) and concentrate solely upon Racism aspect, without the radical-Left agenda then they will rapidly lose their remaining credibility.
Those who support BLM are really supporting the following:
A partner organization, the Movement for Black Lives, or M4BL, calls for abolishing all police and all prisons. It also calls for a “progressive restructuring of tax codes at the local, state and federal levels to ensure a radical and sustainable redistribution of wealth.”
Another M4BL demand is “the retroactive decriminalization, immediate release and record expungement of all drug-related offenses and prostitution and reparations for the devastating impact of the ‘war on drugs’ and criminalization of prostitution.” https://nypost.com/2020/07/01/the-agenda-of-black-lives-matter-is-far-different-from-the-slogan/

India - China Border Dispute
China has decided to stop hostilities on the joint Himalayan border Galwan Valley region. This follows hand to hand fighting between Indian and Chinese soldiers - during the battle "20 Indian soldiers were killed and 76 hurt in hand-to-hand clashes with the Chinese on June 15". The Chinese did not release details of any Chinese casualties.
"The two sides have since held military and diplomatic talks and said they want a negotiated settlement." https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8493937/Beijings-troops-remove-structures-contested-Himalayan-valley.html
This comes as a complete surprise since China appeared to have embarked upon a major programme of expansion of Chinese control of what it considers to be its sovereign territories - including Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Galwan Valley (above) and the South China Sea areas.
China is increasing its presence in Hong Kong with rumours of a planned "invasion" to take over complete control - China has effectively told Britain to keep out of Chinese business. The UK has offered refuge in Britain for the Hong Kong citizens with British National (Overseas) passports. Britain has threatened to discontinue the delivery of 5G communications network from China. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8494087/China-accuses-UK-gross-interference-Hong-Kong.html
If China has walked away from major confrontation in the Galwan Valley area, then perhaps the presence of an American Naval presence in the South China Sea will not lead to military confrontation in that area.
Support for BLM in the UK is declining as Britons begin to realise that there is a deeper, hidden agenda, behind the radical Marxist group, beyond racism. Although, some in the UK have been fooled by BLM. Their position started to change after it became clear that they wanted to De-Fund the Police, get rid of Prisons and bring down the Capitalist system that funds them. Some have also discovered an association with the Anarchist group Antifa, so it is not certain how long BLM support will be sustainable in the UK.

US and UK Relationship in 2021
As we approach the American Presidential Election in November 2020 and the end of the UK-EU "Transition Period" on the 31st of December 2020 we are seeing an increase in the activities of those who wish to disrupt both events.
The two events are intrinsically linked through potential trade relationships, and new ties between the United States and the United Kingdom, beginning in 2021 - which would not have been possible while the UK was under EU control (1973-2020).
Any new US-UK relationship could potentially be a threat to the EU's credibility if Donald Trump is re-elected but could be thwarted by a Democratic win or the failure to ratify any new agreements.
The EU and the US Democratic Party are linked through a politically left-wing ideology.
The EU is also seeking to gain an EU-US free-trade deal (TTIP) and hoping to prevent the UK doing the same.
The above factors will have "sharpened-the-minds" of the US Democrats who are working to remove Trump from office by any device before his term officially ends - based upon their actions over the past 4 years.
Anti-Trump Demonstrations in Context
It is recognised around the world, especially by the poor and oppressed in the Third World that ethnic minorities fair better in the USA and Britain rather than anywhere else in the world, with the possible exception of Sweden, but there are potentially greater opportunities.
In fact, America elected the first black President - for two terms in office (2009-2017).
All of the American and British people, of every religion and none, of all colours, and all sexual orientation, able or disabled, rich or poor can demonstrate as long as they do it peacefully and do not try to vandalise cultural artifacts or try to destroy the history of their own country, burn the Flag or hurt other people.
The freedom to be able to demonstrate came at great cost during WWII. The struggle in Europe was between two groups of white Europeans - the hatred from the Fascist side was derived from its ideology, not colour and not Nationality.
The enemy leaders brainwashed their populations into believing that they were a Master Race, so that any other race could be persecuted with impunity.
They occupied most of Europe between 1939 and 1945 and committed acts of brutality and extermination based upon hatred.
If we (the Allies) had not won that war we would be under that same Totalitarian control - our freedoms curtailed and that same brutality inflicted upon our populations unless we complied or even if we did.
The British would not be spared because they were white they were to be subjugated and enslaved in spite of it.
Fascism is only one manifestation of evil, Communism is another - they each administer Totalitarian control over the populations that they enslave.
To see how Totalitarianism works try demonstrating in Hong Kong - dare to even suggest that you want to be free, and and live in a free country, try living in North Korea and criticising its President - or perhaps China, Cuba, Russia or Venezuela.
The demonstrators in the USA have been inculcated with an ideology which does not allow any freedom, for anyone but the chosen "Few".
In the final analysis Marxism is just Regime change where the "Few" change places and the "Many" continue to suffer, and which always ends up being held together by Totalitarianism.
The current demonstrators in the USA and UK are showing their Totalitarian inclinations: attacks on the freedom of others, silencing all opposition through threats, intimidation, metaphorically "disappearing" those who object, criticise or will not comply with the dictates of the mob.
Seeking to destroy the history of any country is a Totalitarian act.
The EU will also morph into single Totalitarian State after it has destroyed the history of its Member States - with a little help from BLM
The euexit.com website was established to attempt to clarify a number of areas of confusion related to the European Union (EU) and its relationship with the UK, this is of particular interest, at this time, as we are trying to break free from the restraints of the EU.
The contents of this website are relevant to anyone interested in how the UK became entangled within the EU; the events leading up the invocation of Article 50 (TEU), and the government's faux attempts to extract the UK from rule by the European Courts of Justice (ECJ)
Recent events have exposed the EU and, in particular, the UK establishment to be self-serving and anti-democratic - this website will comment on matters related to the relationship between the UK and the EU following the death of UK Democracy on the 29th March 2019
Houses of EU Quislings
Is this the real reason why Theresa May would not resign?
Is the real reason because she is working with the EU to ensure that Britain is made into a "Vassal State", so that it can no longer slow down the progress of EU integration and, in particular, to get rid of the trouble-making backbench Tory "Brexiteers?"
This idea stems from an article - 2019 – 009 May is far, far more underhand and deceitful than we ever thought possible. 6 March, 2019 on theeuroprob.org website.
The report focuses upon events in the Summer of 2018 leading to the "Chequers" ambush of Theresa May's Cabinet by her, and her Civil Servants - at the Prime Minster's country retreat on the Chiltern Downs.
"There was very important business: Theresa May, flanked by senior civil servant Olly Robbins, presented the draft agreement for Britain’s departure from the EU."
"For the first time, ministers (including Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson) saw the proposed terms – and the extent to which May would abide by her pledge of ‘Brexit means Brexit’."
"The chief whip instructed that nobody could leave without consenting to the Withdrawal Agreement, unless they resigned – and must then find their way home without ministerial transport."
David Davis and Boris Johnson resigned the following day.
Prior to the debacle at Chequers, May had visited Angela Merkel in Berlin, and indeed she stated, at Chequers; that "no changes could be made to the, so called "Chequers Agreement" since Merkel had signed it off (agreed it)"
"According to a confidential source who has seen a complete transcript of the meeting, the two leaders agreed to a plan that Mrs May allegedly told the Chancellor would “appease” Brexit voters while nonetheless enabling her to get rid of those Tories who were (in her words) “against progress and unity in the EU.”
"According to the transcript, Mrs May is also reported to have agreed “to keep as many EU laws and institutions in effect as she could despite the current groundswell of anti-EU hysteria in Britain”
The Chequers Agreement formed the core of the Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - which has, so far, been voted down 3 times by Parliament - but May is determined to ensure is passed before she leaves office.
It gets worse:
"The transcript also indicated that the Withdrawal Agreement was essentially a German production, with the original draft completed in May 2018 in Berlin. It was then sent to the Cabinet Office marked “Secret”.
"After much to-ing and fro-ing in the subsequent few weeks, including several telephone calls between Mrs May and the Chancellor the final draft was completed late in June, with the Chancellor telling Mrs May that she was happy with it."
"However, a few more small concessions by the UK would be needed later on, just to keep the EU happy."
The most telling part though, is that:
"David Davis was kept in the dark about this planning, as were other pro-Brexit ministers."
"The EU, by contrast, was happy to circulate the transcript of the final May/Merkel meeting to key EU and German embassies."
"What is more, Mrs May was probably unaware that the Chancellor had made a recording of this private meeting! Perhaps our Prime Minister would not have spoken so freely had she realised her words were being noted for posterity."
The article does point out that there is no proof of these allegations, but the source of the information is deemed to be accurate, from past, reliable revelations - and there is much other circumstantial evidence - as explained in the referenced article.
This does fit though with the alleged comment by J.C. Juncker when he "blurted out" that Cameron had assured him, that "he was going to use the Referendum to permanently lock-in the UK to the EU."
Which is no different to what Corbyn, the Labour Party (PLP) and the rest of our elected representatives are trying to do.
The only way to verify the information though, is through a copy of the transcript of the meeting between Merkel and May - anyone have one?
Where does that leave the UK?
It is clear from May's behaviour that she will not resign until the WA&PD is ratified by Parliament. So the statement to the 1922 Committee yesterday does not mean that she will be leaving anytime soon, unless, the Merkel-May Treaty is ratified.
Otherwise, May will have to be "dragged-out kicking and screaming" or removed at a General Election in 2022 - giving the EU plenty of time to, effectively, complete integration of its Member States. (see the latest euexit.com blog post "UK Parliament is not Sovereign)
May, Corbyn and the rest are just playing games.
Parliament is looking to make changes to the Political Declaration - which have no effect on the actual Treaty. It was named a "draft" Treaty, but it is not a "draft" in any sense of the word - it cannot be changed; except by the EU.
Meanwhile, May is hoping that the fear of the "Brexit" Party success will scare MP's into ratifying the WA&PD Treaty - they should be more afraid of the EU and the British People, if they ratify the Treaty.
Once the Treaty is ratified, then the UK will be under total EU (German) control - May and those who vote to accept the new Treaty will have committed the ultimate act of High Treason - contrary to English (Common) Law.
May, though, will be a heroine of the European Union (EUSSR)
