What is this 'Transition' Period About?

By Daniel Bullen

We know that since the EU referendum result became known, a number of politicians and pundits in the media have expressed their contempt for voters. Some openly like Tony Blair and Michael Heseltine and others, not so openly. Some have basically been trying to undermine the vote in a number of different ways.

A so-called 'Transition' period is just one of those attempts at continued occupation of Britain under the pretext to business certainty. This basically means that big corporates can have more access to cheap labour for slightly longer. In addition, these big corporates have benefitted from EU regulations that enable them to establish a monopoly over their markets across the whole of Europe, thereby not giving their competitors a chance to compete. Take the grifters in the French farming industry as an example. They used an EU regulation, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) to line their own pockets whilst forcing consumers to pay more than they would otherwise had they been trading on world market prices. As I say in an extract from my book The Occupation of Britain:

This policy swindle was, introduced in the late 1960s. France could use this policy to protect French farmers. This shows us that this policy was not to benefit British farmers. It was a sell-out so that French farmers can make excessive profits.

The protectionist Common Agricultural Policy of the European Union ensures food prices remain artificially high.

Concisely, the CAP was one of the reasons against joining the EEC. One was that food prices would rise by 15% over a six-year period because CAP contained a system of Community preference meaning that Britain was unable to buy cheaper food from the rest of the world, particularly the Commonwealth. Second, increased food prices would contribute to a 3% increase in the cost of living over a six-year period. Third, British contributions to the EEC budget would amount to £300 million a year, making Britain the largest contributor behind West Germany. British contributions would be high because of Britain's extensive trading links.

Who warned us about that? None other than Enoch Powell. I provided a YouTube clip of Enoch Powell talking about the price rises as a result of EU membership.

Back to the transition period. The overwhelmingly Remainer government under Theresa May wants to make the transition period as long as possible in order to keep Britain occupied for even longer. Why? What is the point? My answer is none at all. During this proposed period, Britain will still be subject to draconian EU regulations designed to cripple the British economy, which is something that France and Germany historically, could not defeat militarily. It is going to cost us big. In other words, a transition period means more years of price rises, particularly in food. Given that this truly diminishes Britain's trade powers and that Ireland actually demanded that such an arrangement although as a permanent fixture it's hard to see why the EU would not agree to this. Still, tense negotiations were to be expected on the conditions for Britain to receive the fullest and freest access to the over-glorified single market during the ill-fated transition period.

In addition, we see most of our politicians trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the voters by trying to remain in the EU's various military structures.
