The Lib Dems under Vince Cable’s stewardship has come to represent a covert form of Soylent Green or Logan's Run. The ludicrous utterances of Cable and his ilk will only further undermine the perceived value of elderly people, warns Peter Divey.
Peter Divey argues that the one-way capitulation demonstrated in the first round of negotiations has served only to embolden the EU's negotiating position. The Government is now so weak that the promise of a hard-Brexit is increasingly unfeasible.
Trump's resilience at facing off his critics is unparalleled, more than that: he seems to revel in their loathing. By drawing his opponents into his carefully choreographed ‘fog of war’, Peter Divey asks who is the real fool, the President or his detractors?
We need to wake up to reality. We’re not going to be leaving the EU without a deal. We’ll have to take a deal, any deal, good or bad. What’s more, every penny of the billions we’ve pledged are as good as in the EU’s pocket, says Peter Divey.
May’s pledge that Brexit would mean Brexit is a sham. It transpires that her vision of Brexit consists of the UK retaining European regulations, tax policy and EU "values". But, all is not lost. We can still salvage this dire situation, believes Peter Divey.
Trump’s use of Twitter allows him to circumvent mainstream media and offers some protection against their ability to dictate his image to their audience. Not without its shortcomings, as yesterday shows, it does have its value, says Peter Divey.
Peter Divey argues that should a Brexit trade deal remain out of sight come December’s European Council summit, the UK must get up off its knees. Failure to do so would sacrifice yet more of our collective dignity.
With Labour rejecting its existing electoral base, pursing instead the once apathetic youth vote, the party will be forced to advance on a vehemently pro-European footing, and in doing so lay the foundations for Britain’s re-entry into the European Union, says Peter Divey.
Peter Divey believes we are witnessing a ‘second push’ on behalf of the pro-remain campaign to destabilise the Brexit process. The charge is led by a phalanx of sympathetic media, of whom the BBC is chief.
Peter Divey believes the Government’s claim that the UK will have exited from the European Union by 30 March, 2019 is laughable. If you are following the rules and paying the subs in any club you are clearly still "in", he says.
Peter Divey believes that if the Conservatives act fast and bring in the correct talents they can deliver Brexit, preserve their reputation for economic competence, and prevent Jeremy Corbyn from gaining the keys to No.10.
May’s speech last week signal’s the start of the Conservative Party’s preparation for life in opposition. The EU will now string out our Brexit ‘transition’ until Labour have seized power in 2022, at which point the fire of hope surrounding Britain’s departure from Europe will officially be extinguished, says Peter Divey.
The EU’s quick post-referendum amendment to Article 50 to ensure that, in future, it is subject to Qualified Majority Voting (QMV), coupled with Junker’s ‘radical vision’ for Europe’s future, including the creation of an omnipotent President, is nothing more than a poorly conceived strategy to overcome the awkward and rebellious obstacle of democratic nations, says Peter Divey.
Peter Divey explains that Tony Blair’s recent contributions to the Brexit debate are simply the latest in a series of salvos, coordinated to by the European Union, aimed at pushing Britain towards Brexit-ref two.
As the fevered Party Conference season draws ever closer, Peter Divey looks in detail at the performance of key members of the Prime Minister’s cabinet, determining who should be sacked and who should be promoted.
