Withdrawal Bill Subversion

From "Tomorrow, the House of Commons will debate whether to transpose the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights into UK law after Brexit. The Government’s European Union (Withdrawal) Bill proposes not to transpose it, while a number of opposition MPs, and some rebels on the government backbenches, have tabled amendments proposing that it be retained as part of UK domestic law."

"Lawyers for Britain" have written an analysis of the effects of such a move and its negative effects upon UK Sovereignty if it is enacted into Domestic Law, see "The Charter of Fundamental Rights in UK law after Brexit: Why the Charter should not be transposed,"  

Such an attempt by the Remain MP's is simply a "Lawyers' Confection" to pretend that the UK needs such a law, whereas in truth, it is simply a way of undermine the supremacy of UK law after we leave the EU and potentially keeps Britain under ECJ rule after leaving. It is just another attempt (as with the EU's insistence that EU citizens in the UK should be subject to EU law, (i.e. UK law should not have supremacy over EU citizens in the UK) - so as to allow the EU to interfere in the internal affairs of the UK. - e.g. to continue to rule over the British people vicariously) enabled by its quislings in the UK Parliament.

Lawyers for Britain summarises their arguments with the analogy - "The purpose of the Charter of Fundamental Rights is to state and enforce the fundamental rights that unite the member states of the EU as they move towards ever closer union. That purpose cannot apply to the UK after Brexit. Nor could the future relationship with our European neighbours, based on trade and cooperation, reasonably require convergence on fundamental rights, any more than a future trade agreement with the USA would reasonably require us to adopt the right to bear arms." 

It is also worth pointing out Article 6 (TEU) of the Lisbon Treaty (2007) 

"Article 6 (1) The Union recognises the rights, freedoms and principles set out in the Charter of Fundamental Rights (EUCFR) of the European Union of 7 December 2000, as adapted at Strasbourg, on 12 December 2007, which shall have the same legal value as the Treaties."

"The provisions of the Charter shall not extend in any way the competences of the Union as defined in the Treaties."


​"Article 6 (2) The Union shall accede to the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (ECHR). Such accession shall not affect the Union's competences as defined in the Treaties."

Basically, the EU accedes to (EUCFR) and (ECHR) - but not if that affects the EU's powers (competences) - so it is all a giant confidence trick by the EU - which, when "push comes to shove", does not really place "Human Rights" or "Freedoms" as highly as it wants everyone else to believe; the EU only really cares about power and will ride roughshod over any opposition - it has no respect for the populations of its member states.

This is also borne out by the fact that the EU sided with Spain after it used paramilitary police to prevent the Catalans from voting in the Catalonia Independence Referendum - but has worked to destabilise the Ukraine and encourage the Ukrainians to break away from Russia. It subsequently gave visa-free access to the EU to 40 million Ukrainians - against the wishes of the Dutch population - after they voted against such a move in a Referendum - to reject such action by the EU.
