‘Always welcome back’: Verhofstad calls for UK to rejoin EU to escape Liz Truss ‘mess’. Fred adds: 1973 UK and Ireland joined the EEC, Ireland remains a member of the EU but Northern Ireland, the Protocol and so much more would suggest a return to the EU would settle a lot of problems encountered by the UK now at a time when the world is approaching a possible World War III in its fight to maintain Democracy, the Rule of Law, Separation of Powers, Human Rights. Russia is our foe. China is likely to back Russia. LondonGrad has yet to be dealt with. The sanctions will hit Russia but we forget the affect the west too. Remember semi-conductors which comprise so much technology are 80% from Taiwan, the country that China wants to re-take or conquer.

Sharing an article titled “The markets have taken back control: so much for Truss’s Brexit delusion of sovereignty”, Guy Verhofstand renewed his call for the UK to rejoin the EU. The Guardian column by Jonathan Freedland blasts the “delusion” of “pure sovereignty” promised during the Brexit referendum by Leave campaigners.

It reads: “The leavers’ slogan, ‘Take back control’, urged Britons to shake off the constraints of Brussels and become a proud, sovereign nation once more – a nation that, alone, would decide its fate. After Brexit, they promised, Britain would be the sole master of its destiny, unburdened by the need to consult or even accommodate anyone else.

“The three weeks since Kwarteng delivered his mini-budget have seen the shattering of that delusion. For Truss and her now ex-chancellor were given the rudest of reminders that in our interdependent world there is no such thing as pure, untrammelled sovereignty.”

Echoing the comments, Mr Verhofstadt wrote on Twitter: “How’s Brexit going? One thing is for sure: the mess didn’t start in 2022 but in 2016.

“But Britain is always welcome back!”

Liz Truss’s premiership remains in peril this weekend, after she sacked her chancellor and ditched a major chunk of her mini-budget in an extraordinary gamble to stay in power.

It was unclear late on Friday whether such drastic actions could be enough to keep her in Downing Street, with the markets remaining jittery and reports of Tory MPs plotting intensely to replace her.

After three weeks of turmoil on the financial markets in the wake of Kwasi Kwarteng’s £43billion mini-budget tax giveaway, Ms Truss ended days of frenzied speculation by forcing her friend out of office and U-turning on her commitment to drop the planned rise in corporation tax from 19 percent to 25 percent, a central plank of her leadership campaign.

Jeremy Hunt, twice a Tory leadership contender and a former foreign secretary, has been parachuted in as a safe pair of hands in Number 11.
