Achieving an acceptable Brexit deal for all parties involved is an impossible task. Mrs May tried to get a compromise deal but failed miserably. A mutually beneficial Brexit deal is as unlikely to appear as the mythical pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. By deviating from the official process of leaving the EU and striving for a special Brexit deal, Mrs May created political chaos and public unrest and paid the penalty for her folly. This article highlights some of the myths surrounding the elusive Brexit deal, whilst showing how it has now been hijacked for ulterior political motives.
Myth No. 1 – A good Brexit deal for the UK is also in the EU’s best interests
After taking up her post as Prime Minster, Mrs May told us that a Brexit deal was definitely possible as it was in the best interests of both the EU and the UK. This statement is very misleading as it does not distinguish between the exit process and a UK-EU free trade deal. Certainly, a free trade deal is in the best interests of both parties. However, losing the UK’s financial contributions together with the prospect of an independent UK becoming prosperous outside of the EU, are most definitely not in the EU’s best interests. Giving the UK a beneficial Brexit deal would likely lead to other member states following suit, with the potential break-up of the EU. So the EU will never willingly accept any Brexit deal which does not allow it to retain control of the UK’s future economy, thus limiting our future prosperity.
Myth No. 2 – Brexit is a complex and difficult process
We are constantly being told that negotiating the UK’s exit from the EU is a complex and difficult process. In fact, the official EU exit process is very simple. The member state invokes Article 50 and 2 years later it leaves. EU permission to leave is not required, there is no need for a negotiated exit deal, and there is no obligation to pay any financial compensation. It couldn’t be simpler.
Myth No. 3 – Without a Brexit deal there can be no Brexit
Towards the end of her reign as PM, Mrs May actually said that without a Brexit deal there could be no Brexit. Totally untrue, as after invoking Article 50, the EU has no power to prevent the UK from leaving.
Myth No. 4 – A Brexit deal is necessary to achieve all the benefits of leaving the EU
By simply leaving the EU under Article 50 all of the benefits that 17.4 million voted for in the EU referendum are 100% guaranteed, leaving only the free trade deal to be negotiated which, according to EU rules, can only be finalised after we leave. The sole purpose of the 2-year waiting period is to provide adequate time to agree upon ways of providing a smooth and orderly exit, something which should be in the best interests of both the EU and the UK.
So why is our Parliament so obsessed with achieving a Brexit deal with the EU?
