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 […]

No guarantee of EU rights after Brexit

Published on by

An amendment by Labour to protect our EU rights and protections after Brexit has been defeated in the House of Commons. The Labour front bench sought to amend the EU (Withdrawal) Bill to ensure that after Brexit, EU derived employment rights, environmental protection, health and safety standards and consumer standards can only be amended by […]

European Union or a new Soviet Union?

Published on by

There is now mounting evidence that the Russians are using techniques to destabilise the European Union, and possibly attempted to influence a win for ‘Leave’ in last year’s referendum. Today’s front page of The Guardian gives a non-cryptic clue: ‘Russia backed Brexit in fake Twitter posts’. And today’s front page of The Times claimed, ‘Russia […]

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 […]

The EU was started for one purpose: peace

Remembrance Sunday is held in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth as a day “to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts”. Of course, we must never forget those who gave their lives in service to our country. We especially owe […]

‘I am a European’ by Winston Churchill

On 9 May 1948, Winston Churchill, Britain’s war-time Prime Minister, addressed the European rally held in Amsterdam, during which he said: THIS IS THE EUROPE which we wish to see arise in so great a strength as to be safe from internal disruption or foreign inroads. We hope to reach again a Europe united but […]

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 […]

The secret Brexit files must be released

Published on by

The government has commissioned 58 secret reports on the economic impact of Brexit, but has refused to make them public. The comprehensive studies have been prepared by experts into the likely effects of various Brexit terms on different sectors comprising around 90% per cent of the UK economy. Today Prime Minister Theresa May was under […]

David Davis doesn’t understand negotiating or the EU

Published on by

Brexit Secretary, David Davis, has said that Britain won’t hold ANY Brexit talks unless the EU drops its demands for €100bn in payments it claims are due. It’s now more than likely that Britain will leave the EU without any agreement in place, which of course will be disastrous. Unfortunately, David Davis has shown he […]
