In an effort to break the deadlock in negotiations, the EU is understood to have demanded a review within 10-15 years of any post-Brexit trade agreements with the UK – which critics say means that a future pro-EU government in the UK could be A quick. Reverse any concluded deals or agreements. The review means that any future government can simply “transfer power” to the European Union, ripping apart all of the progress the current British negotiators have made. The move sparked an angry response from a group of Brexit supporters, who had warned that such a proposal would push the UK away from the negotiating table, and demanded that the “review clause” be rejected altogether.
Get Britain Out warned that even if Brussels is willing to make more concessions in an initial agreement under these terms, “the sole purpose is to induce the government to accept what is actually likely to be an unfair agreement, only to back down or make amendments to the trade agreement at a later time.” When there is a prime minister who is more pro-EU! ”
Get Britain Out director Jane Adde said: “Asking the EU so late in the negotiations is totally absurd. They are desperate, and the lack of respect they have shown to Lord Frost and our government is appalling.
Trade agreements develop naturally and change over time. However, any proposal to attempt full renegotiation in a specified number of years is unlike any other agreement with the European Union.
“Once again, the European Union refuses to listen to what the UK wants – and our red lines defined at the start of these negotiations.
There is no need for a unique deal with far-reaching powers and new mechanisms. The UK should be treated like any other country that negotiates with the European Union.
“This is nothing more than an open attempt by the European Union to kick the box down the road, hoping that the remaining government will roam Downing Street at some point in the future.
“A government that would be happy to abide by its demands, tear up any existing trade agreement and sign the UK into the continuing slavery of Brussels.
“This should not and should not happen.
“It is time for the European Union to finally understand that we voted to leave the European Union in the 2016 referendum – and these discussions and flirting will not continue with the extension and re-accession to the European Union.
The UK wants us to be friends with the European Union. Yet there is no point in being friends of a country bent on stabbing us in the back. We will not continue to return to this issue in the years to come.
“The focus of the UK should be on our global future, not the ailing and economically stagnant European Union.”
