WHY BLACK VULTURE:
BECAUSE IT IS A HORRIBLE AND GHASTLY BIRD IN CONTRAST TO THE PRETTY YELLOWHAMMER WHICH GAVE ITS NAME TO QUESTIONS WHICH GAVE SUCH A GRIM VIEW OF NO DEAL BREXIT
BLACK VULTURE QUESTIONS
These questions can be put by both supporters of EU Remain and Brexit leavers. Of course, they may not get the same answers and where ever they are able, both groups should compare both responses. This note seeks only to present the questions and does not offer answers on the grounds these are usually quite clear, or already known.
Question 1. Will leaving the EU mean that the UK will have fully recovered its sovereignty?
No, not entirely, although it will have repaired the damage caused by the Lisbon Treaty, there are numerous other breaches which remain.
Question 2. Will leaving the EU mean that the British Parliament is restored to its full omniscience as required constitutionally by the Bill of Rights of 1689?
Question 3. With the May plan, if revived, would that present a result very little different to that from remain?
No, because it would not restore to us the right of veto which we lost with the signing of the Lisbon Treaty on 13 December 2007. We would remain wholly subject to the laws and rules decreed and ordered from Brussels, we would have caused Her Majesty to be in put in breach of her Coronation Oath not to in any way reduce the omniscience of Parliament and we would be subject to levels of taxation imposed by Brussels sufficient to cure all the ills of the rest of Europe and our sovereignty would have been irreparably damaged.
Question 4. Will the UK still have its monarchy and an orderly succession as we know it for future generations?
Question 5. Will our Courts and Justice systems continue to work in accordance with the same principals and practice as we expect from our Supreme Court?
Question 6. What is the European Defence Union and how will this affect the UK?
Question 7. Will the UK still maintain its Army, Navy and Air Force to provide its own security and defence?
Question 8. Will the UK still have the Pound Sterling as its main currency or will we have to adopt the Euro?
Question 9. What is meant by Fiscal Unification of the EU? And will it happen?
Question 10. If so, does this mean the EU will annually set the tax rates for all Member countries at the level needed to cover the cost of rescuing all E.U. countries which are in financial crisis and need bailing out such as Italy, Greece, Poland etc.?
Question 11. If so, will this mean a huge rise in the tax having to be paid by every UK citizen?
Question 12. Is it true that the EU is planning to set up its own integrated intelligence and security operations?
Question 13. If so, how will the renowned UK agencies such as MI5, MI6 and GCHQ work in conjunction with these, or would they become fully absorbed in the EU overall operation?
Question 14. If so, what access would we have to the product of such an operation?
Question 15. And how would such an integrated EU intelligence operation fit with the critical British participation with the brilliantly successful ‘Five Eyes’ global security monitoring activity embracing the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand? Would the USA trust in essential output to be accessed by European countries?
Question 16. Madam Von der Leyen has indicated that the EU wishes to be a significant nuclear weapon power. Why?
Question 17. Does this mean the EU would wish to assume control of the UK’s Trident fleet?
Question 18. If so:
Who would pay for the planned replacement of Trident?
Would the USA ever be willing to allow the EU access to thermonuclear technology used by ourselves under license?
Question 19. Will the UK maintain a fair and equal placement of the key and very valuable economically, production orders for all military equipment such as ship building, tanks and aircraft etc? Would the UK be able to rely upon a fair share of this huge and valuable market?
Question 20. Is there any truth that Madam Von der Leyen has recently stated that the EU might recognise a future need to introduce conscription across its territory in order to maintain military strength?
Question 21. What enemies does the EU identify as a cause to justify its military concerns?
Question 22. Is it true that the EU intends one single overall commission centre to conduct all foreign relations with external countries, to the exclusion of any established relations such as the UK might have?
Question 23. Could this mean that the UK could be forced into sharing EU hostile or alien relations with countries the UK might regard as friends or even allies?
Question 24. Is it true that the future European Defence Union will insist upon a central Command and Control structure for the strategy and deployment of all fighting forces regardless of country of origin, and that originating countries will be completely excluded from any authority in such Command and Control?
Question 25. Is it true that the UK has already agreed to all or any of the EU’s demands for full cooperation in the European Defence Union?
Question 26. If so, to whom will British forces swear their loyalty as they currently do to Her Majesty The Queen?
Question 27. Given that the 1969 United Nations Vienna Convention on the Laws of Treaty Making specifically prohibits trading contracts between nations, which can result in enforced national boundary lines, why has the UK not formally petitioned the UN to rule to overturn the EU’s backstop, which specifically does this?
Question 28. Is there still time to make this petition given that it must be submitted before any formal acceptance — which would seem to be the case up to 31 October 2019?
Question 29. Did any separate UK Government officers undertake parallel discussion with EU personnel as to key points which would have application after any principle deal negotiated by Mrs May had taken effect? May we have full disclosure of these secondary but probably important discussions which took place and which are rumoured to be covered by separate signed protocols? Will these now be fully accounted for? It is believed all such discussions relate to Cabinet Office Executives.
N.B.: All the points or questions set out in this Black Vulture Report are derived entirely from ordinary press and other media comments over the last year. Most of these derive from the broadsheet press, although its author has been able to augment this by reference to various media and similar video clips on the internet. The latter have been particularly helpful in monitoring the very frequent and usually unambiguous comments of Madam Von der Leyen, particularly those relating to the Munich Security Conference, at which the former UK Prime Minister Mr T. Blair was present on stage. This paper does not contain any statement or information obtained from official or confidential Government or Armed Service sources.
Lord James of Blackheath CBE
And a final question from Black Vulture himself (adds Lord James):
Will there be enough meat left on the rotting carcass of Britain, still an EU Remainer, a once proud sovereign nation, or will I be faced with the sight of a resurgent sovereignty breaking free to fly away to a new freedom and a fully sovereign existence?
