Remainer Lord Heseltine has on the first day of Britain’s freedom from the EU called for MPs to relaunch the battle for the UK to rejoin the European Union… insisting Britain will do better inside the European Union.
The former deputy Prime Minister who spoke on LBC radio vows to renew his battle against Brexit. “The battle starts again. With a chapter closed last night, a new chapter opens. First of all, it is up to us who believe in a closely-knit relationship with Europe to use the same determination Brexiteers did to disrupt the European partnership.
“We want it back, and the only logical answer is to argue for that decision. What we’ve got is a deal which is a running battlefield every time we want to change our position,” the former Tory deputy leader said. Leaving is going to inflict a significant dent on Britain’s economic position, none of that is compensated by any of these rollover deals,” Mr Heseltine added
Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the EU should be ready to welcome an independent Scotland back into the bloc, “Scotland will be back soon, Europe. Keep the light on,” she said.
Scottish voters never supported Brexit and the First Minister holds it as a major issue in her move to break away from the United Kingdom.
The new arrangement says freedom of movement rights has ended and, while UK citizens can still travel for work or pleasure, there are rules in place now, like Passports must be valid for more than six months, visas or permits may apply for long stays, pets need a health certificate and drivers need extra documents to move around.
Although Travelling to Ireland hasn’t changed, but the Northern Ireland Protocol means that Northern Ireland remains in the EU single market for goods and will apply EU customs rules at its ports, not minding that the region is still part of the UK.
