Which part of & # 39; We have voted to leave the customs union & # 39 ;, Do not you, Prime Minister?

NEXT week is crunch time for the UK and the British government.
While the prime minister is at the head of the main EU summit, she must promise the Brexit promised to the British public.
Alamy The British public has chosen to take back control of our laws, money, borders and trade. Now it's time for the United Kingdom to deliver to the 2017 general election manifesto of the Conservatives to regain control over our laws, borders, money and trade. When we went to the polls, my party promised that we would take control of our borders by leaving the European internal market. We promised that we would take back control of trade. These trade agreements would be made in Great Britain instead of in Brussels. To do this, we would leave the customs union of the EU.
It is not clearer than the promise: "We will no longer be members of the internal market or customs union." Our manifesto also promised that our laws in the UK would be made and interpreted by judges here, not in Europe. That is why the prime minister's proposal was not correct.
On the basis of such an agreement, we should comply with EU laws in the EU rulebook and we would still be subject to the European Court of Justice.
AP: Associated Press The Prime Minister should step out of its Checkers proposal and look for an advanced free trade agreement. We would be from Europe and still be run by Europe. Any proposal put forward and submitted to Parliament must take back control of our laws and ensure that the European Court has no influence over us. So what does Theresa have to do? The answer is once again clearly explained in the Conservative manifest of 2017.
It says: "We will seek a thorough and special partnership including an extensive free trade and customs agreement." Therefore, the prime minister must deviate from her checker proposal and seek an advanced free trade agreement with the EU. An extensive free trade agreement, such as the EU free trade agreements with Canada and Japan, is what our manifesto commitments require.
Such a deal would ensure that we take back control of our laws, limits, money and trade. It would honor the referendum. It would be in accordance with our manifest promises. And it would also work for the EU. The government's objection to this is the presumed difficulty of maintaining an open border in Northern Ireland.
For this reason, government figures claim that we can not conclude a trade agreement with the EU unless this problem is resolved. This is nonsense.

Two former Northern Irish secretaries have formulated clear proposals on how a frictionless border can be maintained under a free trade agreement. These proposals have been confirmed by former Brexit Secretary David Davis and Lord Trimble's convocation architect of Good Friday.
In addition, former Minister Iain Duncan Smith has explained how we can build on the system of joint border controls at Dover to prevent delays or friction at the British borders, including in Ireland. This would work for EU rules and ensure a positive future relationship in the future. But instead of submitting these proposals, the government stubbornly sticks to the so-called Irish fallback stop. They say we have to pay £ 40 billion and have to stay with everything but name in Europe until the problem is resolved. That would not be Brexit. We would write a huge check to stay in the EU.
This approach is not only a bad use of taxpayers' money. It breaks another manifest promise.
AFP – Getty It is Theresa May's duty to guarantee the Brexit promised to British publicity. For our 2017 manifesto, it says: "it is necessary to agree on the terms of our future cooperation alongside our withdrawal, to reach agreement on both within two years" of our service to the EU. In other words, by the end of March next year.
It is therefore wrong that the government agrees to the conditions for admission without finding the full detail of our future relationship. A temporary solution does not take into account the mandate of the referendum, it does not keep our promise to the manifest, and it certainly does not take care of our hard-earned money.
In addition, would this temporary solution really be temporary? Ask the Normans how such a deal has come to them. In 1992 they signed the Agreement on the European Economic Area. They were told by the EU that their sovereignty would be respected. But 26 years later, this & # 39; temporary & # 39; appointment become final.
In the meantime costs have increased tenfold and almost 12,000 EU directives and regulations have been implemented through the Norwegian EEA Agreement.

Our government must be afraid to walk in such a dangerous way. Voters will not tolerate a "temporary" scheme becoming permanent. They would see it as a betrayal. People voted to leave the EU because they wanted change. They believed in Britain and the land of opportunities that we can build. They agreed to take back control of our laws, money, borders and trade.
The conservative manifesto promised that we would leave the EU altogether. That we would seek a free trade agreement and a new national future.
It is now time for the government to honor the referendum mandate and the conservative manifesto by concluding a free trade agreement with the EU that will enable Great Britain to become an economic superpower in the coming decades.
