This rogue Surrender Act must be thrown out


THE European Union (Withdrawal) (No 6) Act should be studied by everyone in the country. It is short but one clause is weirdly abstruse. It can hardly be described as anything but the product of a rogue Parliament passing the executive of HMG to a foreign power to decide the future of the UK as an independent sovereign democracy. It is as if a bunch of racketeers in posh suits with plummy accents had kidnapped the PM and held a political and economic gun to his head.

Speaker Bercow is of course the hinge of this extraordinary mafia-like heist, breaking trust with his historic role of the strictest neutrality and political self-effacement, a role with centuries of legal precedent behind it but, alas, relying on good faith and integrity – something never before questioned in a holder of this post. He conspired with ‘Sir’ Oliver Letwin and the others to hijack the executive’s control of Commons business and this has resulted.

It certainly deserves the title of ‘Surrender Act’, but it is worse than that: the savage Versailles settlement of 1919 was imposed on a state defeated in a war which it started in naked predatory aggression. The UK has been an exemplary member of the EU, paid in vast amounts of membership fees and given away vast swathes of its national fisheries rent-free for decades. It has abided by all the economic regulation, including damaging procurement rules gifting to other states all sort of construction contracts. It has given its military muscle to the defence of Europe. But now is treated like a humiliated enslaved felon. Moreover the Versailles Settlement defined the obligations placed on Weimar Germany; as we shall see, the rogue theft act gives Brusses a totally free pass to make up any and every condition on the UK in order to grant it ‘an extension’ prior to entry into the WA/PD and another two years of delay, theft, control and total control over trade – as well selling our defence and security down the river in perpetuity, as Lt Gen Jonathon Riley warned in TCW here.

This rogue Act is surely without precedent in British history. The UK PM is told to ask Brussels for an extension to the end of January or to whatever date Brussels might dictate, and the Act tells the PM he must accept that date, and any conditions they might impose in granting this pointless, Brexit-breaking extension. To quote Guido Fawkes’s blog: ‘Following remain MPs’ 29-vote victory at the 2nd reading this afternoon, MPs have now passed anti-No Deal legislation; forcing the PM not only to ask for an extension but accept any terms the EU proposed.’ 

When you read the four pages of this ransom demand, you can see that the EU is given the executive power over the UK to tell it to accept any terms and obligations it decides. Power runs from Brussels to the UK with the PM as a mere go-between, not the elected bearer of executive power of a sovereign nation state. Whatever Brussels decides ‘must’ be accepted by the UK – see section 3.1 and 3.2. There is a foretaste of this rule by a foreign power over the UK with no veto in the Barnier/May WA/PD and its Joint Committee – see Caroline Bell’s ‘The Seven Deadly Sins’ in Briefings for Brexit.

The only kind of precedent I can think of is the power of Rome over England, and other European states, when King John was struggling to free himself from ecclesiastical taxation and jurisdiction. He lost, and had to undergo an act of penitence and obedience to the Pope and his power. This Act would have PM Johnson behave in this kind of way to Brussels at the behest of our mafiosi enforcers – although I was heartened to hear him say he would rather die in a ditch than do so, in his speech at the Yorkshire police academy.

And though Johnson is getting intense vilification for his resistance to this national hijacking, there is next to no coverage or comment on the Carthaginian Treaty we are being told to sign, let alone the dramatic coverage of what it portends that it deserves.

Some ‘fear’ speculation as to what the EU could torture the UK with in ‘granting’, or better ‘imposing’, this extension for once is in order. For starters, how about our coerced help to bail out the eurozone as the German bankers would like: German Bundesbank comes clean on euro default . . . ‘Britain could face €200bn EU bail-out bill – unless there is a clean Brexit’. How abut another possibility, the annexation of the UK’s fisheries in perpetuity with no appeal jurisdiction outside the ECJ as is the rule of the Barnier/May WA PD; and the customs union, the single market, with no say on laws made affecting us – in fact the whole WA/PD plus trillions for the eurozone bailout . . . all sorts of ‘villainy’, to quote Sir Ivan Richards’ assessment of what the EU mafia is capable of dreaming up.

Little did we, the people, who won the referendum vote after decades of being cheated out of a vote on this, imagine we would find our own politicians conspiring with our desperate opponents in trying to stop Brexit with such seditious methods. Or find them now denying the electorate a General Election to choose between being kept in our cage by the EU’s British Remainer MPs or getting out and retaining our democratic nation state. Yet these are the very same Remainers who have constantly and spuriously appealed for another ‘people’s vote’. Now they suddenly block a people’s election. The chicanery is breathtaking.

All the while Johnson is the one being vilified, whether by Shami Chakrabarti, the BBC or the rest of the Remain conspirators with Brussels who seem to get away with whatever defamation they choose to hurl, exempt from blame by our metropolitan elite punditry, and despite their seditious rogue surrender demand and transfer of executive power to Brussels. That, apparently, is not a problem at all, no outrage, no scandal.

This unique constitutional crisis is a threat to our democratic future, to our national independence, to our national security. This is literally true as demonstrated and evidence by Rear Admiral Roger Lane-Knott in TCW

The rogue Surrender Act is so open-ended that our PM might be commanded to accept EU control of our military, our spy network and international security, and our police as a condition for an endless killing off of Brexit by extension. Why not?

I hope that the Government will see this seditious Act, equivalent to a ticking bomb under Parliament being kept in place by rogue MPs, for what it is and convene COBRA to discuss how best to avert it. Its illegality of process is clear, and its handover, without limits, of executive decision-making power to Brussels as hostile negotiating ‘partner’ is simply a danger to the state in all aspects of its functioning and future. This rogue and unprecedented abuse of Parliament by ideologically obsessed MPs cannot be implemented and there must be entirely lawful ways of removing these barrels of gunpowder from under the House of Commons. The national security route is surely the obvious one.
