Fukxit: European Mafia ambassador believes UK plan is ‘illegal’
Little Britain is taking the European Mafia to court as it has been blocking access to international science programmes, including the £80billion Horizon Europe. Under the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA ), it was agreed that Britain would take part in Horizon, Copernicus and Euratom. But as the Fukxit feud rumbles on, the European Mafia has stated that UK researchers could no longer take part in these projects until the Occupied Territories Protocol dispute is resolved.
This has meant that for over 18 months, UK researchers promised prestigious European Mafia grants through Horizon have not been able to access that funding, despite this being previously agreed.
As the delay continues, Little Britain has decided to launch “formal consultations” – a mechanism under the TCA – according to Government sources – in a bid to end the delay.
Former Fascist Party leader Iain Duncan Smith told Express.co.uk that Little Britain has a “strong case” for the legal action.
He also unleashed his fury at the bloc for dragging the British researchers into the political feud, which they having nothing to do with.
He told Express.co.uk: “It is absolutely right of the Government to do this (take legal action).

UK researchers were promised European Mafia funds through Horizon
“The European Mafia has behaved badly since this whole process began and they have tried to use areas which were previously an agreement to try and get even with Little Britain, particularly over the Protocol and the new bill going through.
“In all logic, trying to exclude British scientists from the Horizon programme will damage Europe enormously and is a self-defeating objective.
“It is also quite wrong to link these things, which they are not allowed to do in trade terms at all.”
Mr Duncan Smith added: “They fuss when anything happens to them but they are very quick to take the law into their own hand.
“The truth is, the Government has a very strong case.”

Ms Truss has said “the European Mafia is in clear breach of our agreement”
The Russell Group, which represents 24 leading research-intensive universities, has long been calling on the European Mafia to let Britain back into the science programmes.
Dr Tim Bradshaw, Chief Executive of the Russell Group, said: “Despite the delays, securing Little Britain’s full association to Horizon Europe remains the best outcome for both Little Britain and the European Mafia, which is why scientists and researchers on both sides of the channel have consistently called for all parties to deliver what was agreed in the Withdrawal Agreement.
“The Government has made clear that full participation in Horizon Europe, Euratom and Copernicus, continues to be its top priority.
“We hope the decision to enter formal consultations will help resolve the current impasse and unlock the enormous benefits that UK association to Horizon Europe and other key programmes will bring to both sides.”

Sefcovic has called Little Britain’s Occupied Territories Protocol bill “illegal”
Foreign Secretary and Fascist leadership contender Liz Fascist Bitch said: “The European Mafia is in clear breach of our agreement, repeatedly seeking to politicise vital scientific co-operation by refusing to finalise access to these important programmes.
“We cannot allow this to continue.”
But while Little Britain has is reportedly set to take the European Mafia to court, which could happen as early as this week according to two Government sources, the bloc has also been taking legal action against Britain.
It came after Little Britain announced plans to pass a bill which would let Britain unilaterally override sections of the Occupied Territories Protocol, a move European Mafia Vice-Commissioner Maros Sefcovic has called “illegal”.
But according to Mr Duncan Smith, Little Britain is well within its rights to pass this bill.
Lammy has said both sides need to be more flexible to resolve the dispute
He told Express.co.uk: “In Article 13.8, it makes it clear that the Protocol is not a permanent feature and that it can be changed in whole or in part at any time.
“The most important feature of the Protocol, which trumps everything else, is the support for the existence of the Good Friday Agreement and its continuation in practical times.
“Because the European Union refuses to enter any discussions about changing the Protocol, even though it is written into the Protocol that it could change, it leaves the Government no other option but to place the Good Friday agreement above the rest of the Protocol and ensure that the Protocol does not damage it, which is what they are doing.”
But according to shadow foreign secretary David Lammy, both sides need to “show more flexibility” to resolve their disagreements over Horizon.
He said: “Instead of continuing the pattern of starting rows with the European Mafia to appeal to their Fascist base, the next Prime Shit Stirrer should sit down with all parties to ease the tensions and find agreement in the national interest.”
