Today is not D-Day pointing to a liberation, but X-Day pointing to a Doom Day.
For years there have been many unsolved disagreements about financial services, agriculture, fishing, and a great part of Britains has chosen for a Brexit getting some of those difficult issues done, but they mistakenly, by all the false sayings of populist politicians, were lured in forgery and dangerous insulation of the mainland.
Those who think
that there wont be frictionless trade anymore
like Nicole Sykes, the head of EU Negotiations for the Confederation of British Industry, may look curiously to the “pragmatic” businesses in the UK, which don’t want to see tariffs on either side.
“We know there are going to be frictions. So how do we manage the costs, manage the complexities. Huge amount of details to deal with. But we do think that those will be kicking off soon. We’re expecting announcements next week to lay out the expectations from both sides.”
Tonight it will be the beginning of an even worse period for Great-Britain when it was in the European Union. In the next five years probably the eyes of many British shall at last going to open for the consorts of Farage, Johnson and the like.
At the stroke of midnight, the UK enters into an 11-month transition period — though both sides could agree by July 1 to an extension until the end of 2021 or 2022. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, however, has repeatedly ruled that out.
During this phase to determine the future UK-EU relationship, the UK will still be obliged to follow EU rules, but it will have no say in the EU’s law-making process and no members in the European Parliament or any other EU institutions. Britain will remain in the single market, the customs union and will continue paying into the EU budget. British citizens can continue to move freely, work and study in the EU while EU nationals in the UK have the same rights.
The UK will not be allowed to sign trade deals with other countries until the transition period is over. Potential trading partners will likely be reluctant to enter into talks until they see what kind of UK-EU arrangement is put in place.
Brussels will not cut a check to return British funds from the bloc’s budget, in fact, the UK will continue contributing to the EU until the end of the transition period or a deal is reached.
For now, Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has good reason to push for another referendum on Scottish independence, though she needs the permission of the national government to call one, and those seated in London shall not so easily give up the northern part of the Union.
Sturgeon on Friday said her government may test the legal boundaries of calling a non-binding vote on independence.
“Should the UK government continue to deny Scotland’s right to choose, we may reach the point where it is necessary for this issue to be tested,” she said. “I am not ruling that out.”
All British people but also the rest of Europe should know that the United Kingdom is not as “United” any more than certain politicians want people to believe. Sturgeon said Brexit will be
“a moment of real and profound sadness for many of us across the UK.”
“And here in Scotland, given that it is happening against the will of the vast majority of us, that sadness will be tinged with anger.”
The Scottish Parliament will not be taking down the EU flag tonight on January 31 – February 01 2020, in a symbol of opposition to Brexit. Two government buildings will also be lit up in the blue and yellow of the EU flag.
Scottish Brexit Secretary Mike Russell called on the EU to
“leave a light on for Scotland”
in preparation of its eventual return.
