The United Kingdom will agree to follow all European Union rules after Brexit and keep the nation’s borders open for the duration of the transition period to 2022, with further bad news for fisheries and communities in Northern Ireland as a new agreement was reached in Brussels Monday. …
Speaking first at the meeting with journalists, French politician Barnier said Britain had agreed to continue following all Brussels laws for years after the offical Brexit date of March 2019 under the guise of a transition period, but would not be able to challenge or make decisions on that law itself.
Sugar-coating the fact that Britain won’t be free from the yoke of EU legislation for years to come, Barnier said: “the United Kingdom will no longer participate in EU decision-making processes because after the 30th of March 2019 you will no longer be a member state.”
Barnier also made clear that Britain wouldn’t have any control over immigration during the transition period either, with all European Union citizens coming to the United Kingdom through the period into the 2020’s would have full rights forever, under what he called a “new resident status”, saying this would give those citizens “legal certainty.”
Sad. The people vote … and the bureaucrats and their pet politicians subvert.
