Brexit

KATIE HOPKINS: You can’t please all the people all of the time, Theresa, so stop trying. And if you let the Scots and Irish decide when we can Brexit it will NEVER happen

As any good parent knows, first you ask your kids to get ready. Second, you ask them again. Third, you start shouting random words like ‘socks’, ‘toilet’, ‘shoes’. And finally you throw something across the kitchen, yelling, ‘Right, that’s it — I’m going!’ and take two minutes in the car to calm down, sweating from the nose, remembering why you hate perfect-pants Mary Berry.

Watching people try to achieve this politely is almost comical. And so it is proving with Theresa May. She is supposed to be getting us out of the door with Brexit.

But instead she has made the terrific blunder of announcing she will not trigger Article 50 until all devolved nations are in agreement. She wants Scotland and Northern Ireland to buy in. She doesn’t even seem very keen on upsetting the Irish Republic. Or the French. Or the Germans. Or the Italians. Or… well you get the picture.

At home she’s hoping for an agreed UK approach and objectives before she triggers Article 50.

Good luck with that.

That’s the equivalent of telling the kids they are not getting in the car until they’ve had enough time playing Pokémon Go or messaging their mates. It’s never going to happen.

They don’t want to leave, so they are going to make our life about as hard as you never knew it could get.

All Grey May has managed is to put power back in the pocket of the Poison Dwarf from the North, making her think she has a veto over our democratic decision to Leave. And to get Martin McGuinness’s trigger fingers twitching about the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The Scottish and Irish leaders have puffed out their chests with nationalist pride and started sounding off about the deals they are going to make.

The Dwarf from the North says ‘Remain means Remain’ and that Scotland will continue to look at all avenues to remain inside the EU. She says the 62 per cent who voted Remain have given her the mandate to act, and a second referendum is likely.

Shouting up from her position at nipple-height to Theresa May, she said she was ‘pleased Theresa was willing to consider any positions the Scottish government forwards to secure an ongoing relationship with the EU’.

Perhaps the Scottish Not Prime Minister should know her place.

Behind the bravado is the uncomfortable truth that Scotland’s deficit is supported by UK fiscal transfers worth more than 5 per cent of GDP. We are paying for Scotland’s debt. And their healthcare and free university tuition.

And so far nobody in the EU seems very keen on adding another basket case to its extensive collection.

Secondly, for all her hot air and bluster, a second referendum on independence would be a much harder sell this time around.

My Scottish friends despair at the thought. With EU membership uncertain, North Sea oil prices plummeting and their own currency plan destroyed by Brexit, Sturgeon would be setting out a stall of rotten fish eggs. No one is going to buy.

British trade makes up 29 per cent of Scotland’s GDP. Phillip Hammond said he could not envisage a scenario in which Scotland had a different relationship with Europe than the rest of the UK.

Scotland cannot be in the EU if the rest of the UK is out.

A new Hadrian’s Wall is the very last thing Sturgeon needs.

Theresa May would have been better placed to stay in Westminster, ask someone to pass down the telephone to the Dwarf from the North, and tell her to pick a Union rather than scuttling up there on Day 1 of her premiership.

May should tell her to pick the United Kingdom and pipe down with her nonsense.

Ireland is no better. Theresa May is now promising to engage with Northern Ireland’s devolved administrations on negotiations out of the EU.

Fixated on the possibility of a reinstated border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, Deputy First Minister Martin McGuiness wants to have a vote on Irish reunification, and for a unified Ireland to remain in the EU.

It seems to me that in trying to please everyone, Theresa May is pleasing no one.

Meanwhile, in Dublin the Leader of the Republic of Ireland, Mr Kenny has been banging on about that fact Ireland is the only EU member to state that shares a land border with the UK, and is also threatening a future vote on Irish unity in the wake of Brexit.

Concerned about the impact of Leave on the Common Travel Area, and the impact of a border on trade, travel and the Northern Ireland Peace Process, Ireland is fixating on the border in the same way the Scottish are fixated on derailing any plans coming out of Westminster.

Maybe they still haven’t got over the fact the Great Britain was insulated from the ruinous policies of the EU during the last financial crises.

While the economic interdependency of a shared currency brought Ireland to its knees and the utter humiliation of having their entire ball-breaking budget set by Brussels in return for a national bail-out.

Perhaps Mr Kenny has forgotten our trade with Ireland is worth almost £1billion a week, supporting 400,000 jobs across our islands?

In truth there is a strong will to preserve the Common Travel Area between north and south and there have never been real border controls between the Republic and UK citizens.

But there is a simple answer for Northern Ireland. Pick a side. Continue your relationship with your biggest trade partner, the UK, or work out your own border control with the rest of the EU.

It’s a similar choice for Dublin. If you want to keep an open border with the North, not to mention freedom of movement across the Irish sea by boat and plane, you will have to impose your own restrictions on travel to the EU.

If you want choices, you need to own your problems.

The Chairman of the Northern Ireland CBI has said ‘whatever the actual outcomes of the negotiations, our members recognise the need to get on with it.’

And that’s my feeling about Brexit too. Get on with it.

Theresa May needs to be reminded Brexit won the referendum to leave the EU. We didn’t vote for a pause or a fudge. We aren’t children. We can’t be bought with sweets.

It seems to me that in trying to please everyone, Theresa May is pleasing no one. We have the wee Krankie in the North telling us she has power over our decision-making. And ex-IRA Man waving his weaponry about, threatening the peace process.

Meanwhile a dithering Grey May looks for some monumental fudge which will dismay Brexiteers.

Keeping the Union intact and preserving open borders between Ireland and Northern Ireland may yet water Brexit down to something unacceptable to those who voted for it.

Europe may be trying to hand us a deal which gives us a temporary pause on freedom of movement and protects our single access to the single market. This is not what we voted for.

It might keep the Union together, as a compromise which might please Northern Ireland and Scotland, but would guarantee disappointment for Remainers and Brexiteers.

Theresa May said ‘Brexit means Brexit’. But her continued reluctance to trigger Article 50, to appease Scotland and Northern Ireland, and her lack of appetite for a timetable to leave are saying something very different.

The kids are running circles around her. At this rate she will never get out the door.

Scotland needs to pick a Union. And both Irelands need to pick which trading partner matters more.

When push comes to shove they will stick with the devil they know.

And Theresa May needs to be reminded Brexit won the referendum to leave the EU. We didn’t vote for a pause or a fudge. We aren’t children. We can’t be bought with sweets.

Lay down the law, invoke article 50. Yell if you need to, but get us in the car. Then take two minutes to calm down. Sweating from the nose.
