With His View On Christopher Booker’s Revelations re:
Simon Nixon’s belated, if not benighted discovery that Britain is entangled with the EU & BreXit will take time!
Such insight on Simon Nixon’s part!!!
Sunday 14 August 2016
Having been writing for so long about how complex and involved the process of extracting ourselves will be – taking in the process a great deal of flak from a wide range of leavers – I do find is vaguely offensive to find the likes of Simon Nixon telling us: “What is becoming clear is that the UK is much more entangled with the EU than Brexiters realised or understood…”.
This is a man who has quite evidently given the process of Brexit no more than a few nano seconds of thought, remaining years behind the curve, yet somehow feels qualified to lecture us about leaving the EU. If anything, though, he’s typical of his ilk, feeding off the intellectual desert that comprises the London bubble, in which the paucity of ideas makes anyone with anything approaching sentience look like a genius.
However, at least Booker is banging the drum for the Efta/EEA option, noting that one of the few glimmers of light in the murky fog which now surrounds our leaving of the EU was the news last week that David Davis, our lead negotiator, may soon be visiting Norway.
Until now, Booker writes, Davis and his fellow lead “Brexiteers” have poured scorn on the only sensible and practical way for us to leave, which is to go for the off-the-shelf solution whereby we remain in the European Economic Area and apply to join Norway in the European Free Trade Area.
All other suggested alternatives, we are told, are out of the question, because only this can ensure that we can continue to trade with the single market just as we do now – which is what the vast majority of British people want, including most of the 48 percent who voted for us to remain in the EU.
Concludes Booker, we can only hope that, as advised by his more clued-up civil servants and by our seemingly sensible new Prime Minister Theresa May, it is precisely this which Mr Davis will be discussing with the Norwegians.
In due course, when they’ve finally got to grips with that concept, we can gently tutor them in the Liechtenstein/EEA solution, and then introduce them to the idea that continued EEA membership is only an interim option.
At some stage, we then have to feed into the system a clearer picture of what the end game for trade and cooperation in Europe should look like, although they are probably not ready for ideas on re-orientating the EU’s Single Market and turning it into a genuine, Europe-wide single market, based on inter-governmental cooperation.
Then, of course, we have to look at the global situation, and break away from the sterile obsession with negotiating free trade agreements with our global trading partners. We need a much more sophisticated understanding of the options available to us – which will form the core of Monograph 7. This is under preparation.
Currently, I’m rather intrigued with a possibilities afforded by multi-stage coordinated unilateralism – which is actually driving some of the trade liberalisation in China. But there are many other mechanisms which need to be used, all of which make the idea of free trade areas somewhat old hat. No doubt, though, as we develop the ideas, we will always have the likes of Simon Nixon ready to tell us all how complicated it all is, and how lucky we are to have him tell us so.

With an avg. 1.2M voters per MEP & Britain having only 8%, if united, say. The EUropean Parliament has no ability to make policy and has a Commission of unelected bureaucrats, thus clearly the EU is not even a pretence of being a democracy; yet The EU & many of its vassal States are willing to slaughter people in Sovereign States to impose The EU’s chosen brand of democracy on them!
The imposition of a Government and policies upon its vassal regions such as the peoples of Greece shows just how far from being a democracy the EU is.
There will be little or no change in Britain’s economic position, when we leave the EU, using a better negotiated & updated version of the ‘Norway Model’ as a stepping stone to becoming a full member of the Eropean Economic Area, where all will benefit, as we secure trade relations with the EU’s vassal regions, with an EFTA style status and can trade and negotiate independently on the global stage, as members of The Commonwealth and the Anglosphere.One huge benefit will be that we can negotiate with bodies like the WTO, UN, WHO, IMF, CODEX and the like, directly in our own interest and that of our partners around the world in both the Commonwealth and the Anglosphere at large; rather than having negotiations and term imposed by unelected EU bureacrats and their ionterpretation of the rules handed down as if they were some great achievement by the EU.The greatest change and benefit will be political, as we improve our democracy and self determination, with the ability to deselect and elect our own Government, with an improved Westminster structure, see >Harrogate Agenda<.
