    “ The European parliament has called on Michel Barnier to keep Britain permanently tied to its employment, environment and competition laws as the price for maintaining free trade with the EU.

    In a resolution adopted by 543 votes to 39, with 69 abstentions, MEPs said there needed to be “dynamic alignment” with EU standards across a range of issues.

    As MEPs gave their seal of approval for the maximalist position, the European commission for the first time wielded its powers under the withdrawal agreement to order the British government to change its domestic law, despite the country having left the EU two weeks ago.”

    UK alignment on EU standards price to pay for trade deal, say MEPs | Politics | The Guardian

    I thought they only wanted our fish and our blood. Do those MEPs even realise that we buy twice as much from the EU as we sell to them? s

    Well, they may not be carrying the Irish for too much longer...

    I'm looking forward to the reaction of the Irish Farmers when they're told "Sorry Boys but we're getting less money from the EU and you're going to have to start paying more tax!"...
