EU referendum broke 'rules' set by former Brexit secretary

Jon Danzig |

The EU referendum was entirely flawed according to criteria set by former Brexit Secretary and ardent Brexiter, David Davis, on how referendums should be “done properly”. In July 2016, Tory MP, Mr Davis, accepted the result of the EU referendum and the dual-role of Brexit Secretary and Chief Brexit Negotiator in Theresa May’s new government. […]

The news changed and we got Brexit

Jon Danzig |

Brexit used to sit on the far side lines of politics. Indeed, the word ‘Brexit’ was only invented in 2012, and until the referendum, most people didn’t know what it meant. (Now it’s in the Oxford English dictionary.) Prior to 2011, tabloids such as the Daily Mail and Daily Express were more fixated on false […]

What they want: The end of the EU

Jon Danzig |

They want to see the end of the EU altogether. That’s been the aim of prominent Brexiters from the start. And it’s certainly the aim of the guy who started Brexit: former UKIP leader and MEP, and now President of the Reform Party, previously the Brexit Party, Nigel Farage. In September 2017, Mr Farage received […]

Telegraph spreads nonsense about the EU

Former Conservative MEP, Daniel Hannan, has penned an article for The Telegraph with the headline: ‘Poland is learning, as Britain did, that the  EU will never let its members be sovereign’ What nonsense. The EU is not a foreign power lording over the members. The EU IS the members. All EU laws and treaties are […]

Her response came after a comment from a member of the audience who said: “We’ve got a lack of foreign workers which […]

Welcome to BBC Brexit Time

Jon Danzig |

The member of the audience at the very back of the studio took presenter Fiona Bruce by surprise on BBC Brexit, sorry, Question Time. Said the jacketed, bespectacled gentleman: “A lot of people voted for Brexit because they didn’t want foreign workers taking our jobs,”  “And now, that’s exactly the situation that we’ve got. We’ve […]

True Tories were Remainers

Jon Danzig |

The party may bear the same name, but Conservatives today are not the same as Conservatives of yesterday. The party has morphed into the Brexit party by deterring or kicking out any MP or Parliamentary candidate who supports EU membership. Or else, Tory MPs and government ministers who used to support Remain have simply transitioned […]
