Here’s what we want from the EU as we negotiate Brexit
Earlier today in Westminster, our Leader Paul Nuttall and Brexit Spokesman Gerard Batten spelt out the terms that we demand from Brussels as Britain negotiates its exit from the EU. As both made clear, Brexit is about what Britain wants from the EU, not what the EU wants from Britain.
Here are UKIP’s Six Key Tests that prove Brexit means Exit –
1. The Legal Test:
Parliament must resume its supremacy of law-making with no impediments, qualifications or restrictions on its future actions agreed in any leaving deal. Britain must wholly remove itself from the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. No
undertaking shall be given in the leaving agreement that constrains the UK to being an ongoing member of the European Court of Human Rights.
2. The Migration Test:
Britain must resume full control of its immigration and asylum policies and border controls. There must be no impediments, qualifications or restrictions agreed to in any leaving deal. We must not be bound by any freedom of movement obligation. The
departure terms must facilitate the Government finally making good on its broken promise to cut net annual net migration to the tens of thousands.
3. The Maritime Test:
Joining the EEC involved a betrayal of our coastal communities at the behest of a previous Tory prime minister. They must not be betrayed again. Leaving the EU must involve restoring to the UK full maritime sovereignty. The UK must resume complete control of its maritime exclusive economic zone – stretching 200 miles off the coast or to the half-way point between the UK and neighbouring countries. We must ensure that no constraint other than its own physical capacity or the needs of stock preservation or replenishment – as decided upon by the UK Parliament – applies to our fleet. This will give our fishing industry a long overdue chance to recover.
4. The Trade Test:
The UK must retake its seat on the World Trade Organisation and resume its sovereign right to sign trade agreements with other countries. The UK must have full legal rights to set its own tariff and non-tariff barriers consistent with WTO rules. This means
leaving the EU single market and customs union. Continued tariff-free trade, with no strings attached, may be offered to the EU, but if the EU declines the offer then WTO terms are the acceptable fall-back position. Post departure, both sides will have the ability to further liberalise trade on the basis of mutual gain.
5. The Money Test:
There must be no final settlement payment to the EU, and no ongoing payments to the EU budget after we have left. We must also reclaim our share of financial assets from entities such as the European Investment Bank, in which it is estimated that some £9bn of UK money is vested.
6. The Time Test:
Given that David Cameron held the referendum so early in the Government’s term of office, it is clearly reasonable to expect the Brexit process to be completed well before the next General Election. To go into the 2020 election with loose ends left untied or an open-ended transition still in progress would risk plunging the country into a new era of uncertainty and emboldening those who wish to overturn the referendum result. That is unacceptable. So Brexit must be done and dusted before the end of 2019.
Bromsgrove Branch AGM.
Message from our Branch Chairman
UK INDEPENDENCE PARTY , BROMSGROVE DISTRICT 2016 / 17
I wish to take this opportunity to thank every member of this branch, I know many of you could not attend the AGM on 13th Feb. for one reason or another. Thank you for your belief in the committee by returning them to their posts for another year.
My thanks extend to all of you who supported this branch throughout the year particularly before the Referendum , out in all weathers tramping the streets leafleting, attending table days and talking to the public. Thank you to the wives and husbands non members for tolerating us.
You were all magnificent. You . UKIP members won the vote in Bromsgrove 55% leave.
Be proud for your children and grandchildren, history in the making.
On 23rd February I will be going to Stoke to support Paul…..It could be a long day , I shall leave at about 7.30am from Bromsgrove , my car is small but I have room for three passengers , please email firstname.lastname@example.org return time unknown…..23rd is voting day….
This May are the County Council elections. We need both ‘give it a good try serious candidates’ and ‘paper candidates’ we will be working with H&W towards a few ‘targeted seats’ , If you wish to put your name forward for either ‘type of candidate’ please do so asap to the above email address….
even a paper candidate will receive some votes , for just being UKIP, the point is we need as many votes nationally as possible for a variety of statistical reasons…….
A candidate can put themselves forward for any area in Worcestershire , if you feel you do not want to be identified locally, no problem.
Lastly I want to thank Owen Cleary , Mike Wrench, Peter Jewel and Derek Bennet for their support and guidance.
I have tried to keep it short , apologies if I have omitted anyone or anything.
Adrian Smart. Branch Chairman.
Message from Branch secretary Peter Mchugh.
Fellow Branch Members,
The Annual General Meeting took place this evening, at the Ewe and Lamb
restaurant on Hanbury Rd, and the necessary business was successfully conducted.
The existing committee stood down as the rules dictate, and nominees were sought
for the main posts. Adrian re-stood for Chairman and was adopted, Marie as
Treasurer similarly, Myself as Secretary, and John Pardoe became Membership Sec,
Invited guest Peter Jewell ( UKIPs Legal Spokesman ) gave an excellent address, and
expressed the view that the hard work being put in for the Stoke by-election, appears
to be bearing fruit.
Also in attendance were Owen Cleary Worc’s Branch Chairman, and Mike Wrench
Regional Organiser and Wyre Forest member.
We look forward to a successful 2017.
Regards Peter McHugh Sec.
I would like to extend a massive, heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who helped to make this possible
The ‘Leave’ vote on Independence Day was nothing less than a revolution in British politics.
Never before in our history has the Establishment received such an emphatic message from the people, or has the gulf between the self-regarding elites of the political class and those they are supposed to serve been thrown into sharper relief.
When the serried ranks of grim-faced career politicians who threatened that Brexit would mean lighting a bomb under the economy, plunging us into a Third World War and bringing about “the end of Western political civilisation” are forced to march through the parliamentary lobbies to give force to the public vote, it will be the greatest illustration of popular sovereignty this country has ever seen.
Our representatives will be left in no doubt that they are our servants, not our masters, and that the power they wield is lent to them by the people, it is not an entitlement they can hand away to unaccountable bureaucrats overseas on a whim.
None of this would have been possible without the tens of thousands of grassroots activists and supporters who took our case to doorsteps and shared our articles, news stories and videos with millions of people on social media. You have made history, this is your victory.
|We delivered over 20 million leaflets, wrote to 10 million people, produced 500,000 car stickers and phoned 1 million people through our call centre in Bristol.
Our social media campaign was supported by a million people with our content reaching between 15 to 20 million people a week.
Thank you to everyone that played their part in this victory, you fought for your country and won.
