The Daily Mail is the enemy of democracy

Published on by

My editorial today for the Reasons2Remain campaign: The Daily Mail this morning reported: “Eleven Conservative MPs last night voted to give the Commons a ‘meaningful’ vote over any Brexit agreement with the EU, despite government pleas to let ministers retain control.” The Daily Mail accused those 11 Tory MPs of treachery. We say they upheld […]

The two-faced Tories ruining the UK

Published on by

• Click photo to enlarge   All except one of Theresa May’s first Brexit Cabinet were in favour of the EU or its Single Market prior to last year’s Referendum. Now, all her Cabinet are taking the country on the road to Brexit, even though most of them had previously urged that such an action would […]

The government of long noses

Published on by

Today in Parliament, Prime Minister Theresa May said of Brexit, “The negotiations are in progress and very good progress has been made in those negotiations.” Did you notice her nose grow an inch? We can’t believe anything this government tells us. The Brexit negotiations are going disastrously wrong. Did Mrs May fly to Brussels on […]

If only Parliament would stop interfering

Published on by

What a bloody nuisance Parliament is to the Tory government these days, when all the Prime Minister wants to do is get on with Brexit. If only Parliament would stop interfering, she and her fellow Brexiter Ministers could make much more progress. Ditto the law. I mean really, why do we need Parliament and the […]

Has Corbyn seen the light on Brexit?

Published on by

So, has Corbyn seen the light at last on Brexit? Yes, according to columnist Polly Toynbee writing in The Guardian. After his brilliant performance at Prime Minister’s Question Time this week, Ms Toynbee was moved to write: ‘The Labour leader finally grasps what leaving the EU really means: the greatest harm inflicted on the very […]

Theresa May urged to ‘exploit Merkel crisis’

Published on by

Senior Tory Brexiters demanded last night that Theresa May exploit Angela Merkel’s political weakness and suspend plans to offer billions of pounds more to the European Union, according to today’s front page of The Times. Talks to form a coalition in Germany collapsed yesterday, and Mrs Merkel said that she was ready for a rerun […]

Why the Brexit Secretary is out of his depth

Published on by

In Berlin this week our Brexit Secretary, David Davis, attempted to give a lecture to the Germans. “Don’t put politics above prosperity,” he said. That seems rich as the ideology of Brexit means doing exactly that: putting politics above the prosperity of Britain. But there were other oxymorons in Mr Davis’s speech. He said he […]

How fake news caused Brexit

Published on by

It’s becoming increasingly obvious that fake news in some of Britain’s leading newspapers helped to cause Brexit. Every day newspapers such as the Daily Mail and Daily Express print articles that promote hatred of migrants and the EU generally. ‘Too many EU migrants’ was cited as one of the main reasons people voted for Leave […]

Unfit to govern

Published on by

The Tory administration is leading Britain to disaster. They are unfit to govern and should go. Tonight, International Development Secretary, Priti Patel, was forced to resign after a series of maverick, reckless, unofficial ‘secret meetings’ in Israel which broke the ministerial code. Yesterday, Brexit Secretary, David Davis, failed to deliver 58 Brexit impact reports, as […]

UK Brexit impact reports now don’t exist

Published on by

We should have known all along that the 58 Brexit impact assessments that Brexit Secretary, David Davis, claimed existed only last month are in fact all bluff and bluster. Just like Brexit itself. Today Mr Davis told MPs that the UK government’s 58 sectoral analyses of the impact of Britain leaving the EU can’t be […]
