Minerve, good on you. The silence at large on this appalling government's record of lies is quite extraordinary. Re. NI, there was no serious commentator who did not flag up the risks as well as the choices for the UK: we could EITHER have a border between Eire and NI, OR a border in the Irish Sea.. Johnson chose the latter as his 'oven ready deal'. It turned out to be a real turkey.. Laughing aside, it's not as if there aren't real risks to the peace there. I notice btw, that the UVF has recently disowned the Good Friday agreement. But now, of course, Johnson will seek to blame the EU for the treaty he signed up to himself, in preference to the previous one arranged by May. And so long as we are all willing to see the EU as the enemy, he will seek to get away with it. hxxps://www.irishnews.com/news/northernirelandnews/2021/03/04/news/loyalist-paramilitary-groups-withdraw-support-for-good-friday-agreement-2243573/

We all know why the EU is being bloody minded, they're doing what they said they'd do - discourage any other EU nation from thinking about leaving. The problem for Brussels is: the more they behave like bullies and disrupt commerce on both sides of the water, the more anti-EU feeling will be generated on the continent, and the more EU citizens will want to leave. UK government's actions on trade with NI seem very reasonable, and would have been agreed with any reasonable trading partner - only Brussels has determined not to be reasonable. Not only has business suffered from covid, but now Brussels is making business even harder in the EU and here. There's going to be a price to pay.

First trains to be built at Siemens Mobility’s new £200 million factory in Goole unveiled Transport for London (TfL) and Siemens Mobility have today unveiled the detailed design of the new generation Tube trains for the Piccadilly line, which will soon be in production to replace the existing 1970s fleet. The trains currently running on the line have become increasingly unreliable and expensive to maintain and will be 50 years old by the time they are replaced. Despite the devastating impact that the coronavirus pandemic has had on its finances, TfL is continuing to replace these assets, meaning that from 2025, new spacious ‘Inspiro London’ trains will serve customers on the Piccadilly line, future-proofed to ensure they are suitable for many years to come. As the new trains are introduced to the Piccadilly line, the current fleet will be gradually withdrawn from passenger service and the frequency of trains in peak hours will rise from 24 to 27 trains per hour from mid-2027. This is a train every 135 seconds at the busiest times and represents a 23 per cent increase in peak service capacity. The state-of-the-art Tube trains will significantly improve the experience of millions of customers, with wider doors and longer, walk-through, air-conditioned carriages for more comfortable journeys. The new trains optimise space to boast 10 per cent more capacity, as well as being significantly lighter than existing designs, meaning energy efficiency is increased and damage to tracks is reduced. This is achieved by using an innovative articulated design, meaning fewer bogies (the structures containing the wheels, motors and suspension to support and power the train) are required per full-length train. This provides the additional benefit of a smoother ride. The new trains have also been designed with sustainability in mind. They are 95 per cent recoverable and also offer regenerative braking capability, cutting-edge traction systems, LED lighting throughout and advanced energy management. This means energy consumption is reduced by 20 per cent compared with the existing fleet. The longer, more spacious, air-conditioned trains will be fully walk-through, boosting accessibility and ensuring customers can move easily to quieter areas of the train. The train design has been developed with regular feedback from TfL’s Independent Disability Advisory Group (IDAG) and the TfL Accessibility Forum. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “These much-needed new trains will be a great step forward for our city, improving frequency, reliability and capacity on the Piccadilly line. The continued modernisation of the Tube – which has seen a transformation over the last two decades – is a key part of my Transport Strategy to make London a greener, more affordable, more accessible place. But we need investment to continue this work. I will keep lobbying the Government to deliver a long-term, viable funding model for TfL, which would enable us to carry out more upgrades to the network’s ageing infrastructure, boost our economy and deliver a green recovery for London and the wider country.” The new trains are a good example of how investment in TfL is an investment in the UK’s economy, with 55p of every pound invested in improving London Underground being spent outside of London. Fifty per cent of the new train fleet will be built in Goole, East Yorkshire, employing up to 700 people in engineering and manufacturing roles, 250 in the construction phase and 1,700 in the broader supply chain. Last month Siemens Mobility announced £50m of related contracts for UK suppliers, including a number for train components. These included almost £6m in contracts for Yorkshire-based LPA Lighting to provide the interior train lighting, and Midlands-based suppliers Baker Bellfield to supply cab partition wall and I M Kelly for driver seat footrests.

id the EU ever intend to allow the UK regain sovereignty?EXCLUSIVE: Brussels has 136 legal cases open against the UK, with more to come?© Brexit Facts4EU.Org 2021The hostility from the EU against Brexit Britain is now plain for the world to seeIn the House of Commons on Wednesday, the Democratic Unionist Party MP the Rt Hon Sammy Wilson put the following to Secretary of State the Rt Hon Brandon Lewis MP:-?"Does the Secretary of State accept that if the Prime Minister's promise and the protocol's assurance that there will be unfettered trade between GB and Northern Ireland are to be delivered, something more than an extension of the grace periods is required? Really, there needs to be a reset or a rethinking of the agreement so that we have an alternative arrangement, such as the mutual enforcement of regulations, that would exempt Northern Ireland from being subject to EU laws and from the European Court of Justice making judgments about this part of the United Kingdom."In fact the United Kingdom's problems with the EU's laws and its 'European' [EU] Court of Justice (ECJ) go much further than what is happening in Northern Ireland.The EU has a large number of active legal cases open against the UKFacts4EU.Org has researched the current position regarding legal proceedings which the EU has opened against the United Kingdom. The UK is facing the continuing process of EU law – and being forced to appear in front of the ECJ – for events prior to Brexit.However, the results of our research raise some fundamental questions about sovereignty. They bring into question the extent to which the UK regained any sovereignty when it technically ceased to be a member of the European Union on 31 January last year (2020).Our research flags up 46 actions which the EU has taken against the United Kingdom AFTER it ceased to be a member.BREXIT FACTS4EU.ORG SUMMARYThe EU continues to use EU law against the sovereign United KingdomThe EU has 136 legal proceedings against the UK which are defined as 'active'90 of these actions pre-date the UK's departure - some of them only just46 of these actions are dated AFTER the UK 'left' the EU on 31 January 2020There are 103 'Formal Notices', 22 'Reasoned Opinions', and 11 'Referrals to Court'?© Brexit Facts4EU.Org - click to enlargeIt is very important to note that these actions are taking place under EU, not international, law. And this is despite the United Kingdom supposedly now being a free, independent, and sovereign country.EU's legal actions show how far they took over UK's national lawsOur investigation shows just how the EU invaded every part of United Kingdom life during the UK's membership. Despite Remainer politicians and commentators deriding the claims of pro-Brexit organisations like Facts4EU.Org that EU laws were staring to dominate British life, the facts demonstrate that Brexiteers were right.Below is the official list of policy areas covered by the EU's 136 active legal actions.BudgetCommunication Networks, Content and TechnologyEmployment, Social Affairs and Equal OpportunitiesEnergyEnvironmentFinancial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets UnionHealth and Food SafetyHome AffairsInternal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEsJustice, Fundamental Rights and CitizenshipLegal ServiceMaritime Affairs and FisheriesMobility and TransportSecretariat GeneralTaxation and Customs UnionReaders may consider that it might have been easier for us to list any areas of policy which have not been subject to EU action.More legal action against the United Kingdom from the EU is on the wayAs has been widely reported, the UK Government is finally taking action to protect the status of Northern Ireland and its fragile peace process. In response to Sammy Wilson's question in the Commons on Wednesday, the Secretary of State said:?"The right hon. Gentleman is absolutely right that we have to ensure that the people of Northern Ireland can continue to enjoy products, their commercial activities and their day-to-day lives in the way that they always have done as members of and part of the United Kingdom."This was then followed up by a Written Ministerial Statement which can be read here.This statement provoked an immediate response in Brussels and it is now clear that they will be opening yet more legal actions again the United Kingdom in the coming days and weeks.Brussels instantly went on the attackContrary to claims from the Commission, it was in fact informed by the British Government of the decisions to extend transitional reliefs in order to ameliorate the crisis developing in Northern Ireland as a result of the EU's 'Protocol'.Within just a few hours, before Lord Frost had even had a chance to speak to his opposite number, the EU Commission's Vice President Šef?ovi? had put out a statement and press release.Statement by Vice-President Maroš Šef?ovi? following today's announcement by the UK government regarding the Protocol on Ireland / Northern Ireland"Following the UK government's statement today, Vice-President Šef?ovi? has expressed the EU's strong concerns over the UK's unilateral action, as this amounts to a violation of the relevant substantive provisions of the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland and the good faith obligation under the Withdrawal Agreement. This is the second time that the UK government is set to breach international law."This also constitutes a clear departure from the constructive approach that has prevailed up until now, thereby undermining both the work of the Joint Committee and the mutual trust necessary for solution-oriented cooperation."It is equally disappointing that the UK government has resorted to such unilateral action without informing the EU's co-chair of the Joint Committee. Issues relating to the Protocol should be dealt with through the structures provided for by the Withdrawal Agreement."Vice-President Šef?ovi? has reiterated that the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland is the only way to protect the Good Friday (Belfast) Agreement in all its dimensions, and to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland. Throughout last year, we worked tirelessly to find practical workable solutions, based on the Protocol, to minimise disruption caused by Brexit and to help facilitate the everyday life of communities in Northern Ireland. The Joint Committee formally endorsed these solutions on 17 December 2020 in order to help businesses adapt to the new reality."The Vice-President has also recalled that at the last EU-UK Joint Committee on 24 February, the UK reiterated its commitment to the proper implementation of the Protocol, as well as the implementation without delay of all decisions taken in the Joint Committee in December 2020. He also recalled that the mutually agreed joint engagement with Northern Irish business groups and other stakeholders was meant to jointly look into solutions."In his phone call later today with David Frost, in his capacity as co-chair of the EU-UK Joint Committee on the Withdrawal Agreement and of the EU-UK Partnership Council, Vice-President Šef?ovi? will inform him that the European Commission will respond to these developments in accordance with the legal means established by the Withdrawal Agreement and the Trade and Cooperation Agreement."Lord Frost responded robustly to the EU, in a call that eveningHere are the key excerpts from Prime Minister's Office, 10 Downing Street, Cabinet Office, and Lord Frost CMG, 03 Mar 2021Statement by Lord Frost regarding the Protocol on Ireland / Northern Ireland - key excerpts"This was their first meeting since Lord Frost took up the role as Minister co-chairing the Partnership Council and the Withdrawal Agreement Joint Committee with the EU."He underlined, as the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster had in his letter of 2 February, that progress still needed to be urgently made to address the direct and often disproportionate impact that aspects of the Protocol are having on the citizens of Northern Ireland, contrary to its intended purpose. He acknowledged the work of the Joint Committee over the last few weeks since the Commission's triggering of Article 16 of the Protocol on 29 January, but noted that these discussions had not yet resolved the current difficulties."Lord Frost explained that the measures announced today, following official-level notification to the Commission earlier this week, were temporary technical steps, which largely continued measures already in place, to provide more time for businesses such as supermarkets and parcel operators to adapt to and implement the new requirements in the Protocol. He underlined that these were needed for operational reasons and were the minimum necessary steps to allow time for constructive discussions in the Joint Committee to continue without the prospect of disruption to the everyday life of people in Northern Ireland in the coming weeks."He noted that such operational measures were well precedented in other international trade arrangements, and that they were entirely consistent with our intention to discharge our obligations under the Protocol in good faith."Meanwhile, Vice President Šef?ovi? then gave an interview to the pro-EU and anti-Brexit Financial Times in which he said the EU Commission was now working on "infringement proceedings" against the UK."We are currently preparing it and it would be really something coming to our table very soon. The most precise term I can give you is really very soon," he said.OBSERVATIONSAs an organisation that produced chapter and verse on the Withdrawal Agreement and consistently and repeatedly condemned it, it gives us no pleasure to say "We told you so". Now, it seems that everyone and their aunt are up in arms about this iniquitous EU treaty.The Northern Ireland Protocol, part of the treaty, has helped to push the whole question of the rescinding and voiding of the entire Withdrawal Treaty into the limelight. Our position remains consistent: we would never have signed the thing in the first place. Now it is absolutely clear that it is not fit for purpose, that it is causing serious damage to businesses and to social cohesion and peace in Northern Ireland, and that it breaks international law by negating the terms of the Good Friday (Belfast) Agreement as we have always maintained.Taken with the recent aggressive and hostile behaviour and actions from the EU which we have shown above, it is certainly right for the British Government to adopt a far more rigorous stance in all talks with the EU than has perhaps been the case over the past five years.If fighting for sovereignty and freedom is important to you...We are most grateful to readers who have donated so far this year, but we badly need more readers to do the same if we are to continue in our sixth year - researching facts, scrutinising, publishing, and lobbying MPs.

Did did Farage or Cash shut up over decades? No. Free world. Youth aren't generally insular cretins like the Little Enlanders. Boris wants to pick a fight because he wants more hate from his chimps/puppy dogs - who bark but cannot bite. He will fail. The world is watching UK behaviour.
