Responding to Michel Barnier’s speech on Brexit, Richard Tice, Co-Chair of Leave Means Leave said:
“If Michel Barnier continues to make unreasonable financial demands, Britain should walk away from the negotiations and revert to WTO rules, which are fine as a base case scenario. The EU is petrified of us doing this, as they fear we will continue to flourish. It is our best negotiating leverage. The sooner this is established, the better for business as we can plan accordingly.
“The idea that the European Court of Justice should be the guarantor of the rights of EU citizens living in Britain is completely incompatible with Britain leaving the EU. There is absolutely no way that the ECJ should dictate to Britain after we leave the EU. The UK has the finest, most trusted legal system in the world. Barnier and his colleagues must accept this as a reality.”
