#??Why is the UK’s Tory Government together with the UK’s supposedly loyal Opposition Labour hell-bent on bonding Britain to the EU with which it runs a humungous trade deficit (they sell more to us than we do to them) when we run surpluses with the USA and the Commonwealth? [Robert Kimball]
# Lord Bew, Trimble’s adviser for the Good Friday Agreement: “There is one great problem with the backstop: it does not protect the GFA. People do not have democratic control. [It] is a top-down imposition on how NI matters will be handled.” [Tom McTague]
# Exactly what we Brexiteers have been arguing all along. It is May’s deal which breaks the GFA. Leaving on WTO terms and/or agreeing an FTA does not. [Derrick Berthelsen]
# A mate skiing in St Anton was contacted this week by the local Tourist Board whom the BBC had asked to find some UK tourists who will talk about Brexit. Our mate said he’d do it; they asked how he voted; he said he was pro-Brexit; they said he wouldn’t be needed since the BBC had asked for Remainers only! [Lord Digby Jones]
# @DrPhillipLeeMP welcomed the 2017 General Election as it was “fair” for “the British people to have their say”. 92% of his constituents voted for parties committed to Brexit, reinforcing the 53% Leave vote in 2016. Now he wants ANOTHER vote! How many more times. [Leave EU]
# Treasury has ruled out online sales tax to help High St because it falls foul of EU rules. hasn’t TChancellor @PhilipHammondUK noticed we’re leaving the EU? [Andrew Pierce]
# The EU does not owe the UK a deal. And the UK does not owe the EU a deal. A Withdrawal Agreement is not required – indeed a Withdrawal Agreement covering anything other than Citizens’ Rights was a bad idea from the start. We do not need a Treaty granting us permission to Leave. [Andrew Lilico]
Coming back to the GFA, I was talking to a chap yesterday born near Newry and he was speaking of it and how May is threatening the peace something awful. ?People remember Euston and Canary Wharf, they will have noticed this latest bombing and Adams getting active again.
He asked who in their right mind would want to threaten the agreement? ?I said the EU wants because they want the Troubles visited upon the UK and in particular England again. ?And May is their poodle.
This really needs to sink in. ?I caught part of Boulton yesterday and it was lies from start to finish, interviewing all the wrong people, none of them addressing the central issues.
These traitors WANT war in England, no two ways about it. ?One can understand why Germany and France want it, but why anyone in England would is beyond normal comprehension.
