Brexit will make Britain safer


News Desk

Britain will be a safer country to live in now that it has left the European Union (EU), said Priti Patel. The Home Secretary pledged to use “even tougher powers to keep this country safe and protect our homeland security” after the UK quit the jurisdiction of the EU at the end of the Brexit transition period. The comments will be seen as a riposte to Brussels, which claimed last month that the UK would no longer have “direct, real-time access” to sensitive databases covering freedom, security and justice in its new trade deal. The deal was seen as diminishing the UK’s security because its membership of Europol, Eurojust, the European Arrest Warrant and real-time sensitive data-sharing agreements such as the Schengen Information System (SIS2) all ended last week.
