Bitter at making zero progress the Torygraph has come up with a bizarre rant; the British are easy going liberals while foreigners in the EU are just spiteful money grabbing bastards

Quote:
Britain wants friendship, the EU wants a fight

At the heart of the EU negotiations is money. Brussels has an ideological perspective, but it also needs cash – and for all its complaint that Brexit is a betrayal of solidarity and liberalism, it is Britain’s annual net contribution of £10.8 billion to the EU’s budget that Europe will really miss.

The EU wants to squeeze as much money out of Britain as possible. it is Britain’s annual net contribution of £10.8 billion to the EU’s budget that Europe will really miss. If the Brexit talks appear stalled, that is why. The EU wants to squeeze as much money out of Britain as possible.

Britain would Mr Barnier wants Britain to agree a divorce bill “methodology” that, in the view of the UK, contains no guarantees about future relations. Not only is this unreasonable, but it betrays the vastly different perspectives of London and Brussels.

Granted, there is a lot of debate within the UK government over what post-Brexit Britain will look like, but its goal in these negotiations is essentially pragmatic: perhaps pay a little money to plug the EU’s finances in exchange for a long-term free-trade relationship that benefits everyone. It is the Europeans who are spoiling for a fight, the Europeans who want tie everything up in endless rows and make it appear as if Britain is paying the price for its alleged nationalism. rather it didn’t.

The British are simply on the look-out for a good bargain, to part with the Europeans as friends we can do business with. Brussels, by contrast, is stubbornly bureaucratic, opaque and prepared to cut off its nose to spite its face. And that is exactly why Britain voted to leave the EU in 2016. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/opinion/2017 ... nts-fight/

He casually types this as if utter disarray about the country's short, medium and long-term future is the new normal. Perhaps his is correct.

Yet...the Mail are still running with this:

Don't worry DM, plenty of white kids studying white people from where I'm sitting (almost literally). As long as they're Leavers and not Labour voters, you'll back them, right?

Get tae fuck.

That Torygraph headline/correction is so foul, because you just know that the distortion and the apology for it is utterly meaningless because it doesn't change their fundamental approach, which is 'uppity kids, especially those forrin ones, besmirching our culture again!'. The fact of the distortion, the context in which it resonates - these are all fine. 'Cuh, well, that might be false, but you know, it's indicative of what the world is like these days!' doublethink horseshit.

Camilla Turner, the author of that heap of dung, has form for (a) making up stuff generally and (b) making stuff up about black people particularly.

They all look pretty good, not too forced. Best piece of political image making the Tories have done for years.

What's the deal? Readers are supposed to think "Look at those smiling fuckers!"

What's the problem? Thomas Mair was just a lone wolf.

It appears to have backfired badly, with even Guido Fawkes critical by saying it might embolden other MPs to rebel.

Telegraph runs Marks and Spencer fashion advertorial on front page.


Driving past banners in farmers fields in Cambs during the election it struck me what a friendly smile Heidi Allan has compared to her neighbouring dreary hacks. She's popular with Labour locally less so with her own party. Safe seat but a young Remainer population so she might as well go in guns blazing.

Anna Soubry was on the telly this morning, saying this was blatant bullying and anti-democracy. I don't recall her shrieking when it was Judges and an English translation from a Nazi newspaper on the Daily Fail

I'm relieved to see there's actually as many as fifteen of them. I was starting to worry it was just Clarke, Soubry, and a couple of others.

Anyone think any of them could bail out when the real shit starts to hit the fan?
