That Brussels dinner…


Proving that John Redwood really does have a sense of humour, I reproduce this from his website. It really does say it all about the EU’s attitude and makes some good points…

Prime Minister
It is a pleasure to be here with you today for dinner. I come to renew my friendly proposals about our future relationship. The UK wants a comprehensive and deep partnership with the EU. We will offer you tariff free access to our market with no new barriers. We will continue our substantial contribution to European security and intelligence. We will carry forward joint working on space , science, academic life and much else. We will continue our welcome for all EU citizens legally settled in the UK

Mr Juncker
Thank you for coming. I do hope you have brought your cheque book. You must understand that we cannot keep on meeting like this unless the UK pays the bills for the dinners and much else. The EU is getting cross with the UK for not being realistic, so I hope this evening we can make some progress on the divorce settlement.

Prime Minister
As I have made clear the UK will pay anything it owes, but you have to understand UK Ministers do not have powers to send money to the EU after we have left. We need to look at all the issues together including our future relationship.

Mr Juncker
I don’t think you understand. The UK has signed up to a soup course for future meals which is going to cost billions of pounds. Doubtless you want coffee, which does not come cheaply either. I have explained before to you that we decided to order drinks right through to the next decade, so that will be another big bill. The UK cant expect to get away without paying

Prime Minister
I can do without the soup course, and coffee late in the evening keeps me awake at night. In the UK we accept we have to pay all the time we remain in the EU but not after we have left. You should cancel the drinks for us for when we have gone and save some of your cash. As to this dinner I thought you had invited me, and I have had the cost and inconveneience of coming to you here in Brussels.

Mr Juncker
You British are so unreasonable. You cant just walk out and leave us short of cash. There is a big bill to pay.

Prime Minister
So how much is the bill, and what is the legal base for the items you want to charge

Mr Juncker
There’s no need to get legal with us. We want you to make a realistic offer. Its all about European solidarity, about setting the right tone for our future relationship. We dont have an itemised bill backed by a legal base.

Prime Minister
When we joined the EEC we did not get a discount or a payment to deal with all the spending commitments the others had decided on before we joined, so why would there be any bill for future spending after we left?

Mr Juncker
You agreed then to join on the terms available. That is different.

Prime Minister
Are you also saying that if a country left the EU now that gets money out, the EU would go on paying it after it had left?

Mr Juncker
There’s no point in getting clever wth the EU. The rest of the EU expects you to pay a large sum. I do hope you understand we cannot possibly talk about trade any time soon given the UKs stubborness.

Prime Minister
That is a pity, as it hugely in the EUs interest to have continued tariff free access to the UK market. We have to go ahead and plan for WTO tariffs on EU food and goods without sensible discussions.

Mr Juncker
The EU has other priorities.

Prime Minister
So the EU does not care about all its exporters to the UK?

Mr Juncker
The impact on the EU is containable

Prime Minister
May I suggest we talk about something else, like Iran, where we may agree and put out a statement on that?

Mr Juncker
That’s the best we can do

Guy Verhofstadt

So Brexit is a ‘waste of time’ according to Guy Verhofstadt. He demands – demands mind you – that Britain must pay for leaving the EU. Who the hell does does this gappy toothed Ken Dodd lookalike think he is?

Well, apparently, he’s the former Prime Minister of Belgium. Belgium FFS! I mean, really? Belgium?

Just watch this video because it tells you all you really need to know about Belgium, the Third Reich’s fast track route to France and now it seems the Fourth Reich’s fast track route to Britain.

Belgium. I mean, who cares?..

An occasional series highlighting people talking bollocks about Brexit.

Guy Verhofstadt
”Brexit is a dictatorship of the majority” – look up the definition of democracy ‘Mr President’

Emmanuael Macron
“After they have implemented my reforms, the UK will want to stay in the EU” – Call me Dave…

Donald Tusk
“The British accept that cake and eat it is no longer an option” – Now we just need the EU to do the same?

Jean Claude Juncker
“Miracles are need to make progress on Brexit” – Especially on the EU side

EU ‘sources’
“Northern Ireland can stay in the single market and customs union even if the rest of the UK leaves”

Michael Heseltine
“Even if the UK did cut ties with the EU in two years time, it would rejoin again in the future”
“The UK will adopt the Euro when the circumstances are right”

Nick Clegg
“I’m just saying look at the demography. The oldest voters voted for Brexit in the largest numbers, the younger voters did the opposite” – so we just wait for the Leavers to die off.

Nick Clegg
“You cannot end austerity if you don’t end Brexit” – Well you certainly can’t end it without Brexit

Sold down the river


Well, what a speech that was, wasn’t it? Only an accomplished liar politician could delivery a crock of shit dressed up as a bouquet of roses and get away with it. What an achievement.

So to be certain I understand it all clearly, we’re now leaving the EU in 2019 but not until 2021 or possibly later. During this time we continue to pay billions into a budget we will have no say over, accept free movement despite not being part of the EU, have access to a single market that we would have had access to anyway under WTO rules which would have added billions to our treasury, and will implement any new laws that we have no say in whatsoever. Apparently, this is defined as ‘delivering the will of the people’?

So what happened to ‘no deal is better than a bad deal’? What happened to ‘go whistle’? What happened to the ‘bloody difficult woman’?

The EU has not budged one single inch in the course of these farcical negotiations, so what do we do? Well, seeing who blinks first would have been my way of doing things, but not our Treesa. Oh no, she goes for the full eyelash fluttering capitulation never mind blinking first!

A little while back we had a general election. One of the justifications for this was so that we didn’t have an election in 2018 when Brexit was looming large. So now we offer to delay things for two years so that we have a general election in 2020 just before Brexit in 2021. Maybe there’s some logic in there somewhere, but I can’t see exactly where it might be.

This speech was a backslide of monumental proportions from a Prime Minister with no backbone clearly out to defy the referendum result and keep us in the Fourth Reich at any cost. Fuck knows what she threatened Boris and Gove with in order to get them to support this, but it must have been pretty damning for them to not only to let her get away with it, but to say it was a great speech and openly support it.

There are no negotiations in reality. Barnier and his gang aren’t interested in a deal. They want to punish us and rob us blind. And thanks to Treesa, we really are being sold down the river and flogging a dead horse…

The Junckers are coming!


Yes, it’s the Battle of Britain all over again. Fire up that bulldog spirit! Arm the defenses! The Third Reich is threatening your freedoms!

Except that this time it’s the Fourth Reich that’s attacking and the Juncker in question is dear old Jean Claude – the insignificant former premier of the piss pot little principality of Luxembourg – with his rousing Nuremburg clone speech on the ‘State of the Union’.

This unelected megalomaniac eurocrat wants to have a United States of Europe with a single all powerful President – presumably unelected like him and possibly even himself – a single army, a CIA clone, a single currency across all member states, enlarged membership, open borders, more immigration and fuck knows what else he’s got up his sleeve.

Now it’s been suggested by a number of Remain dickheads that we didn’t know what we were voting for. Well I don’t know about you but avoiding being ruled by unelected foreign dictators was pretty high up on my list of reasons. What Juncker is proposing is not a United States of Europe, it’s the European Soviet Social Republic and if that’s not what you want then tough titties because one of Juncker’s dictats is the removal of your country’s veto.

This would mark the end of any EU country’s sovereign parliament and right to decide just about anything. All decisions would be taken at a ‘federal’ level by unelected and unaccountable eurocrats. Bye bye freedom, hello The Democratic Republic of Europe!

Nigel Farage summed it up nicely in his response to the speech. He said “…that was the most open, honest and most worrying speech I ever heard. What you’re saying is: Brexit has happened, full steam ahead!”

Most worrying was Juncker’s proposal to ban extremist parties from elections, presumably the definition of ‘extremist’ would be ‘anyone who might not agree with us’? I’d be willing to bet that if the UK weren’t leave then that definition would include UKIP.

Let there be no doubt : this speech represents the great assault on democracy since Adolf Hitler. As Farage so aptly put it “Thank God we’re leaving!”
