The Mail has already been playing that card with the supreme court judge Lord Neuberger an 'internationalist' who sips claret with foreign European judges. See also the Milibands'North London intellectual' immigrants who hate Britain.

More from Redwood.

There are too many interests and individuals who want to undermine the UK position by constantly urging us to make concessions to the EU.


Well, try not making any concessions. See how it goes.

Machiavelli quotes are popping up in the light of May's Florence speech. Brexiters are the most un Machiavellian people ever; No convincing ends to justify their means, no strategy of any kind, they strike without leverage, totally transparent, their actions weaken the state on every level and have produced a leader incapable of inspiring love or fear. Thersa May- the bravery of a fox and the cunning of a lion

One hopes so.

I'm wondering what Redwood thinks is happening. Barnier is about to fold then he sees Ian Dunt talk about concessions, so he changes his mind, are raises the stakes?

Perhaps Barnier follows Gary Linekar's Tweets

It won't occur to Redwood that the biggest wrecker may unintentionally turn out to be Jeremy Corbyn. A constructive opposition would have tried to stall A50 activation until the government had worked out their position on the three opening demands. But Jez was more than happy to stay stum and let the Tories fall down a mineshaft. I only wish that was an intentional strategy.

So we can import cheap covfefe, putting our growers out of business.

This gem from John Pilger who can frame any situation to back up the toughts of John Pilger.
Quote:
In the week of the EU referendum vote, no British politician and, to my knowledge, no journalist referred to Vladimir Putin's speech in St. Petersburg commemorating the seventy-fifth anniversary of Nazi Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union on 22 June, 1941. The Soviet victory - at a cost of 27 million Soviet lives and the majority of all German forces - won the Second World War.

Putin likened the current frenzied build up of Nato troops and war material on Russia's western borders to the Third Reich's Operation Barbarossa. Nato's exercises in Poland were the biggest since the Nazi invasion; Operation Anaconda had simulated an attack on Russia, presumably with nuclear weapons.

On the eve of the referendum, the quisling secretary-general of Nato, Jens Stoltenberg, warned Britons they would be endangering "peace and security" if they voted to leave the EU. The millions who ignored him and Cameron, Osborne, Corbyn, Obama and the man who runs the Bank of England may, just may, have struck a blow for real peace and democracy in Europe. http://johnpilger.com/articles/why-the- ... -to-europe

Russia of course doesn't do any military exercises, simulating attacks.

Or invading and annexing territory belonging to its neighbours. Just ask Ukraine or Georgia.
