Brexit manifesto: End EU membership, the supremacy of EU law and freedom of movement.

This petition had 874 supporters

The UK has voted to leave the EU, and it will fall to the next Prime Minister to implement that decision.

The EU referendum was a binary question and does not say what our ongoing relationship with the EU and its member states should be. However some issues were so prominent in the national debate that to ignore them would be to deny the clearly expressed will of the people. Any new PM should insist upon the following red lines:

* The UK will no longer be a member of the EU.
* The UK courts and parliament will no longer recognise the supremacy of EU law.
* The UK will no longer accept unrestricted freedom of movement from the EU. We will control our borders.

Subject to these constraints the UKs negotiating team must have wide discretion to achieve the best possible ongoing trade arrangements with the EU, and cooperation in all other matters of mutual interest.

The UK must be prepared to trade under WTO rules if necessary, but should prefer no tariffs. Between those extremes the UK should offer a “tariff mirror”, i.e. match whatever tariffs or taxes the EU imposes on broad categories of goods and services from the UK. Mutual interest would require such tariffs to be low.
