What part of "We have chosen to leave the Customs Union", you understand, Prime Minister?

The next week is the time for Britain and the British government.
As the Prime Minister heads into the main EU summit, she has to secure Brexit, which has been promised to the British public.
Alamy The British public has decided to regain control over our laws, money, borders and trade. Now is the time to deliver the Conservative campaign promise to the United Kingdom for 2017 to regain control of our laws, borders, money and trade. When we went to the polls, my party promised that we would take control of our borders by leaving the European single market. We have promised that we will take back control of the trade. These trade agreements would be concluded in the UK and not in Brussels. To do that, we would leave the EU Customs Union.
It does not become clearer than the promise: "We will no longer be members of the internal market or the customs union." Our manifesto also promised that our laws would be made in the UK and interpreted by judges here and not in Europe. Therefore, the proposal of the Prime Minister of Checkers was not correct.
Under such an agreement, we would be obliged to comply with EU legislation under EU rules and we would remain under the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.
AP: Associated Press The Prime Minister should abandon her checker proposal and seek an advanced free trade agreement. We would not be in Europe, but still led by Europe. Any proposal submitted to and submitted to Parliament must re-take control of our laws and ensure that the European Court of Justice has no say. So what should Theresa May do? The answer will be made clear again in the 2017 Conservative Manifesto.
It says, "We will seek a deep and special partnership, including a comprehensive free trade and customs agreement." Therefore, the Prime Minister should deviate from her checker proposal and seek an advanced free trade agreement with the EU. A comprehensive free trade agreement, such as the EU's free trade agreements with Canada and Japan, is what our manifesto promises require.
Such a deal would ensure that we take back control of our laws, limits, money and trade. It would honor the mandate of the referendum. It would be consistent with our commitments as a manifesto. And it would work for the EU, too. The Government's objection is the supposed difficulty of keeping an open border in Northern Ireland.
For this reason, government figures argue that we can not seek a trade agreement with the EU if this problem is not solved. This is nonsense.

Two former Northern Irish secretaries have made two tentative proposals on how to maintain a smooth border on a free trade agreement. These proposals were supported by former Brexit Secretary David Davis and the architect of the Good Friday Agreement Lord Trimble.
In addition, former Cabinet Secretary Iain Duncan Smith has outlined how we can build on the system of joint border controls in Dover to avoid delays or friction at British borders, including in Ireland. This would work for EU rules and ensure a positive future relationship. But instead of pushing these proposals forward, the government is stubbornly clinging to the so-called Irish backstop. They say we have to pay £ 40 billion and stay in Europe until the problem is solved. That would not be Brexit. We would write a huge check to stay in the EU.
This approach is not just a bad use of taxpayers' money. It breaks another manifesto promise.
AFP – Getty It is Theresa Mays duty to secure the Brexit, which was promised to the British public. Our 2017 manifesto states: "It is necessary to agree the terms of our future partnership in addition to our withdrawal and to reach an agreement within two years" Leave the EU. In other words, until the end of March next year.
So it is wrong for the government to agree on terms of resignation without clarifying the details of our future relationship. A tentative solution does not respect the referendum's mandate, it does not live up to our promise and of course we fail to manage our hard-earned money.
Besides, would this temporary solution really be temporary? Just ask people in Norway how such a deal has developed for them. In 1992 they signed the agreement on the European Economic Area. They were told by the EU that their sovereignty would be respected. But 26 years later, this "temporary" arrangement has become permanent.
Meanwhile, the cost has increased tenfold, and the Norwegian EEA Agreement has implemented nearly 12,000 EU directives and regulations.

Our government should be afraid to take such a dangerous path. Voters will not tolerate a "temporary" agreement becoming permanent. They would consider it a betrayal. People voted to leave the EU because they wanted change. They believed in Britain and the land of possibilities that we can build. They voted to regain control of our laws, money, borders and trade.
The conservative manifesto promised that we would leave the EU altogether. That we want a free trade agreement and a new national future.
Now is the time for the government to acknowledge the referendum's mandate and the conservative manifesto by seeking a free trade agreement with the EU, which will make Britain an economic powerhouse over the coming decades.
