We Must Stand for Sovereignty; Don't Accept a Hollow Brexit

July 9, 2019

 

Leaving the EU must be about reasserting our sovereignty, our borders, our national institutions, our domestic industries and our territorial integrity. It must be a foundational policy for any party that is serious about rebuilding our country after decades of breaking up and shutting down.

 

Yet a Boris Johnson, Conservative Party Brexit does none of those things. It offers only a continuation of same national direction we have been led down for many years: borderless, globalised, de-nationalised, service sector Britain.

 

In Boris Johnson's 'vision' for leaving the EU we see embodied all the ingredients of the past 50 years which the Labour and Conservative parties have forced upon the country, changing it beyond all recognition.

 

It is for a Britain without borders, defined by the Conservative Party's post-Brexit immigration White Paper, which lays out plans to entirely abolish non-EU immigration caps and a host of other existing restrictions.

 

It is for a Britain without the rule of law, defined by Johnson's stated policy to grant amnesty and permanent residence to tens of thousands of immigrants living in our country illegally.


It is for a Britain without territorial integrity, defined by his support for retaining an entirely porous and unstaffed border with the Irish Republic/EU, and thus surrender any regulation of goods or people coming into the country.

 

It is for a Britain without national unity, defined by his support for continued and expanded devolution (the EU's 'regionalisation plans'), and his stated goal of a "federal UK".

It is for a Britain without a serious industrial economy, without a homogenous society, without its traditional culture and values; indeed without any of the things which defined Britain before we entered the EU.

Rather than a serious reassertion of British independence rooted in sovereignty, industry and nationhood, a Boris Johnson Brexit offers only a hollow, City of London caricature defined by open borders, more economic and social liberalism, more globalisation, more economic deregulation and gig economy, service sector Britain.

 

To treat leaving the EU as a single, isolated constitutional issue is to strip our exit of all meaning, and to cast aside the deep arguments and emotive sentiments which motivated a majority of British people to vote for national sovereignty.

 

That's why a hollow, "business as usual" Brexit under Boris Johnson is the wrong goal. The only path to pursue is to compete against the establishment parties for a parliamentary mandate to leave the EU and rebuild our country: Sovereign, Industrial, United, Democratic, Traditional and Functional; like the Britain that we used to know.
