Brexit Britain to grow into champion of trade democracy once free from 'EU shackles'

Brexit Britain will get to send a clear message to the world and emerge as a global actor ready to “stand up for democracy,” according to Ms Grande. The American Brexiteer, the founder of pro-Brexit organisation World 4 Brexit, earlier this year launched into new efforts to bring together global investors eager to strike deal with the UK once the country has left the European Union. Speaking to Express.co.uk in September, Ms Grande said: “We see trade as being one of the major opportunities.

“The second opportunity is to really take a stand for democracy.

“In 2016, 17.4 million people in the UK voted to leave the European Union – 51.8 percent of the voting population – and three years later that vote still has not been implemented.”

The former executive assistant to US President Ronald Reagan continued: “If we saw this suppression of democracy, if we saw this ignoring of the will of the people and the vote of the people, anywhere else in the world like Cuba, Iran or Venezuela, there would be global outrage.

“We are not seeing that global outrage because the megaphone of the elite and the powerful are telling a very different story.

“We aim to change that narrative to promote free and open trade and also the full implementation of the will of the people.”

The American Brexiteer also insisted Brexit Britain will be able to regain a powerful spot on the international trading stage once the country will be free of the “shackles” of the European Union. 

Ms Grande added: “The UK needs to be having bilateral trade agreements with its allies around the world.

“Whether it’s the US, whether it’s Australia, whether it’s African nations or all over the globe – there’s a whole world out there waiting to trade with the UK once it releases itself from the shackles of the EU.

“The EU is the slowest-growing part of the world economically and the UK needs to be free of them, free of their oversight, free of the restrictions, the regulations, the bureaucracy that they place on them.”

Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel in October admitted to feeling concerned about the possibility of the UK becoming a serious competitor to European traders after Brexit becomes effective.

In the aftermath of a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, Chancellor Merkel urged EU member states to show what the bloc “can achieve” in the aftermath of Brexit.

Mrs Merkel said: “We will do all this in the knowledge that with the departure of Great Britain, a potential competitor will, of course, emerge for us.

“That is to say, in addition to China and the United States of America, there will be Great Britain as well.”

The German Chancellor added: “Here Europe must show what the European Union can achieve.

“That means we must work faster, work more consistently and the new Commission with Ursula von der Leyen at its head should also become operational as quickly as possible.”

Boris Johnson expressed hopes his Brexit withdrawal deal will finally be allowed through the Commons after securing a strong majority at the general election on December 12. Once passed, the UK and Brussels will be able to initiate trade talks and will have until December 2020 to strike a trade agreement.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said the bloc is ready to move on to the next phase of the Brexit negotiations while warning “the time frame ahead of us is challenging.”

Mrs von der Leyen added: “We will have to work as soon as possible. We will be ready to get the most out of the short period available.”

The Commission boss also insisted she wants London and Brussels to enter an “unprecedented partnership” to maintain a relationship “as close as possible in full respect of our principles.
