    UK Needs To #WalkAway

    It is obvious the tyrannical bureaucrats in Brussels do not want their power over the British people to slip away, not matter what the results of a referendum that said they wanted to do just that. 'Screw the Brits' you can hear in Belgium. As the deadline for an agreement approaches, the EU has just offered the UK an 'offer it can't refuse.' Give us Northern Ireland and you can leave. Wow, what a deal! So generous of them!

    "In an unexpected move, Mr [EU’s chief negotiator] Barnier tweeted that the UK would only be able to leave the backstop unilaterally, if it effectively left Northern Ireland inside the arrangement, which would ensure there is no hard border with the Republic – something Ms May has already said no to and which her DUP allies in government would certainly vote down in the commons," wrote The Independent.

    After weeks of increasingly ill-tempered negotiations, [Brexit secretary]Mr Barclay wrote back: “With a very real deadline looming, now is not the time to rerun old arguments. The UK has put forward clear new proposals. We now need to agree a balanced solution that can work for both sides.”

    One of the paradigms at work here is the EU wants to get this done before the coming European parliamentary elections, where it is almost assured that populists on The Continent will gain a much bigger share of the voting power. Hence the rabid alarm heard from George Soros recently warning his beloved EU social experiment where Brussels and Germany get control over all of Europe without firing a shot will be endangered. 'Open borders for all! Isn't culture change and loss of physical security grand!'

    Theresa May needs to go...get it done guys. She never was in this to begin with; find someone who has the people's best interests at heart, not the finance boys in The City.

    Mighty British people, who once ruled the world...stand up and find the grit to once again rule your own country. Your children's, and their children's, future is at stake.

    The EU will not let you go with a deal that suits Britain. Therefore, just #WalkAway. Leave it, save your 39 billion euro; the United States under President Trump will stand with you, immediately sign trade agreements, and help you find the independent path forward.

    Just leave.
