Brexit : « Global Britain » tourné vers d’autres continents que l’Europe

Le Brexit, ce blog en a parlé.Comme l’article 50 du Traité de Lisbonne prévoit que «  Les traités cessent d’être applicables à l’État concerné à partir de la date d’entrée en vigueur de l’accord de retrait ou, à défaut, deux ans après la notification visée au paragraphe 2, sauf si le Conseil européen, en accord avec l’État membre concerné, décide à l’unanimité de proroger ce délai. » et que les prochaines élections au Parlement  européen sont prévues en mai 2019 avec un délai préalable de campagne électorale, le départ des deux ans se placera en mars prochain comme vient de l’annoncer MadameTheresa May au congrès de Birmingham. .

Par son discours, le Premier ministre a clairement indiqué sa volonté de réaliser le Brexit. Trois  points sont à souligner.

  • Le refus de toute soumission à la Cour de Justice de l’Union européenne

The final thing I want to say about the process of withdrawal is the most important.  And that is that we will soon put before Parliament a Great Repeal Bill, which will remove from the statute book – once and for all – the European Communities Act.

This historic Bill – which will be included in the next Queen’s Speech – will mean that the 1972 Act, the legislation that gives direct effect to all EU law in Britain, will no longer apply from the date upon which we formally leave the European Union.  And its effect will be clear.  Our laws will be made not in Brussels but in Westminster.  The judges interpreting those laws will sit not in Luxembourg but in courts in this country.  The authority of EU law in Britain will end. 

  • Les dispositions aujourd’hui européennes seront demain devenues britanniques

As we repeal the European Communities Act, we will convert the ‘acquis’ – that is, the body of existing EU law – into British law.  When the Great Repeal Bill is given Royal Assent, Parliament will be free – subject to international agreements and treaties with other countries and the EU on matters such as trade – to amend, repeal and improve any law it chooses.  But by converting the acquis into British law, we will give businesses and workers maximum certainty as we leave the European Union.  The same rules and laws will apply to them after Brexit as they did before.  Any changes in the law will have to be subject to full scrutiny and proper Parliamentary debate.  And let me be absolutely clear: existing workers’ legal rights will continue to be guaranteed in law – and they will be guaranteed as long as I am Prime Minister. 

La marque européenne comme le modèle européen sont soumis au contrôle de la juridiction luxembourgeoise. Comme  ces droits perdront leur efficacité sur le territoire de la Grande – Bretagne (ou de ce qui en restera), l’Office Britannique probablement accordera aux déposants la conversation de ces droits en droits nationaux.Les avis de la Cour de justice étant contraignants pour la Juridiction unifiée du brevet, c’est de l’ensemble du dispositif Brevet unitaire et Juridiction unifiée que les britanniques ne devraient pas bénéficier.

  • Sous le titre « Our vision for Britain after Brexit », un regard tourné ailleurs : « Global Britain« 

But what we are now talking about is very different.  Whether people like it or not, the country voted to leave the EU.  And that means we are going to leave the EU.  We are going to be a fully-independent, sovereign country, a country that is no longer part of a political union with supranational institutions that can override national parliaments and courts.  And that means we are going, once more, to have the freedom to make our own decisions on a whole host of different matters, from how we label our food to the way in which we choose to control immigration.

So the process we are about to begin is not about negotiating all of our sovereignty away again.  It is not going to be about any of those matters over which the country has just voted to regain control.  It is not, therefore, a negotiation to establish a relationship anything like the one we have had for the last forty years or more.  So it is not going to a “Norway model”.  It’s not going to be a “Switzerland model”.  It is going to be an agreement between an independent, sovereign United Kingdom and the European Union. 

……..  Important foreign businesses – like Siemens and Apple – have committed to long-term investments in this country.  With the Japanese purchase of ARM for £24 billion, we have seen the biggest-ever Asian investment in Britain.  Countries including Canada, China, India, Mexico, Singapore and South Korea have already told us they would welcome talks on future free trade agreements.  And we have already agreed to start scoping discussions on trade agreements with Australia and New Zealand.

A truly Global Britain is possible, and it is in sight.  And it should be no surprise that it is.  Because we are the fifth biggest economy in the world.  Since 2010 we have grown faster than any economy in the G7.  And we attract a fifth of all foreign investment in the EU.  We are the biggest foreign investor in the United States.  We have more Nobel Laureates than any country outside America.  We have the best intelligence services in the world, a military that can project its power around the globe, and friendships, partnerships and alliances in every continent.  We have the greatest soft power in the world, we sit in exactly the right time zone for global trade, and our language is the language of the world.

  1. Ce discours est d’une grande clarté et balaye tous les faux espoirs de voir le RU adhérer, d’une façon ou d’une autre, au BEU et à la JUB.
