WE MUST NOT ALLOW THIS  DEVIOUS  DECEPTION   TO DESTROY OUR  DEMOCRACY! June 23rd 2016. The United Kingdom held a referendum. Were we to leave the EU or remain? 17.4 million people voted overwhelmingly to leave. Since then there has been an unprecedented conspiracy to thwart the will of the people. We must not allow this undemocratic skulduggery to prevail. This may well be the way of the British Establishment but this is not the way of  the  British People

The purpose of this document is not to restate the arguments for Britain’s exit from the European Union, that case was made, and won on 23 rd June 2016.

The purpose of this document is to describe how HM Government and Parliament could and should fully implement the Referendum decision and leave the European Union as quickly and completely as possible: thereby restoring Britain’s status as a sovereign, independent, self-governing nation.

The format of this document is to describe what HM Government needs to do in order to achieve a speedy and complete withdrawal from the European Union. It also describes the most important areas of policy now controlled by the EU, and summarises the relevant background to each one. Some areas, such as trade and immigration, have been covered here in more detail than others because of their importance or complexity.

The original intention was for this document to propose policies in each relevant section. At that time, the next general election seemed to be far off in 2020, but we were overtaken by events and a snap general election was called for 8th June 2017. UKIP now faces a new leadership election and therefore detailed policy ideas are omitted; and while UKIP policies are not given in detail here, in some areas policy options for HM Government are proposed.

The European Union has spent the last forty-four years invading every nook and cranny of our national life like some kind of legislative Japanese knot-weed. This document is therefore non-exhaustive and cannot cover every eventuality, impediment and objection that will be raised by those seeking to impede or reverse Britain’s exit from the EU, in the myriad areas of legislation now under the control of the European Union. If we had to negotiate our way out of every single piece of EU legislation before we can leave, then we would never leave at all.

Brexit Must Mean Exit! Taking Control The UKIP Plan for Leaving the European Union

The United Kingdom joined the European Economic Community on 1st January 1973 by means of the European Communities Act (1972). It is the European Communities Act alone which makes the UK a member of (what subsequently became known as) the European Union, under UK law. We are not members of the EU because of any EU treaty or piece of EU legislation. Parliament took us in and Parliament can take us out.

It is tempting to retell the tale of the lies and deceit that took Britain in to the EEC in 1973; to tell of the unconstitutional and unlawful basis of our membership since 1973; to tell how the British electorate were deceived and lied to by every Prime Minister since we joined, and how they were denied a decision in referenda on all the subsequent and seismic transfers of power to the EU under treaties such as for example the Treaty on European Union (1992), and The Lisbon Treaty (2007); however, in the interests of brevity this temptation has been resisted.

What is addressed here is the legal and political basis for British withdrawal from the EU using the sovereignty of Parliament, and under our own law, and how we can disentangle ourselves from the web of EU law which currently has supremacy over UK domestic law.

The UKIP Exit Plan sets out how HM Government can seize the initiative and take control of the leaving process: and that means repealing the European Communities Act (1972) as the first step in the leaving process, not the final step. Repealing the Act puts HM Government and Parliament in control of the leaving process and not the European Union.The British people should ask themselves why HM Government is not implementing the UKIP Exit Plan now, and if not, why not?
