The Europhile spectre haunts the Brexit process

The Europhile spectre haunts the Brexit process

The re-emergence of the Europhile rebels reminds us why we need Brexit, writes Peter Divey

Clarke, Adonis and Clegg had a good laugh at the British people’s expense, given special access to Barnier’s inner sanctum. The self named “rebels” lapped up every moment of the opportunity as they were gleefully pulled into Barnier’s “open” door. Arch Europhiles who could have had only one united message and intent, to undermine Brexit in any way that they possibly could.

They would have stiffened the EU’s sinews, purring contentedly about the glories and achievements of Project EU. All back slapping and chardonnay supping. Then the horror of Brexit would have been visited, the vote by the uneducated, the tragedy of Britain’s greatest folly. But all is not lost, the tide is turning, stand firm and Britain will crumble. Delay, stall, frustrate and wait for Labour to administer the Brexit coup-de grace. There is a winning plan. Time to open the champagne to celebrate a meeting well spent.

These three, of no consequence, without mandate other than to be rebels, delighted in weakening the UK and thumbing their noses at the Leave voters. Barnier has never agreed an audience more quickly. And what response from Her Majesty’s official Government? Nothing, nada, zilch. Almost as if it was supported. But other voices were heard, and rightly disgruntled too, calling out the awful optics. Barnier and the “rebels” knew exactly how it looked, what would be said, what the reaction would be. They milked it. But they have underestimated the anger, misjudged the benefit. What tips, tactics, strategy, even secrets were shared both ways? This is a weakness, a grave concern to the UK, an irresistible point of pressure. You would hope no such thing was coaxed from the three fawning quislings.

My antithesis and scorn for the EU only grows. Devious to the last. The “rebels” are beneath my contempt. Nothing has made me angrier. Nothing has made me more certain or determined. Vive la Brexit!

Peter Divey’s dormant interest in British and American politics has been reawakened by last year’s Brexit referendum result and Trump’s ascendency to the White House. In his spare time he enjoys playing chess and has a growing collection of vintage wrist watches.

    Well said.

    We are truly fighting the enemy within. We should have never sat at the negotiating table. We are an honest nation with a dishonest government. We had a right to leave the EU and we should have made clear when we were leaving, when our contributions would stop, how we were going to protect EU citizens and indeed our borders. We would then have made clear our position on security, data and any other issue were wanted to be involved in. We should then have made good to return to WTO.

    Instead we have had delay upon delay so the door is left ajar for court cases, treason, intrigue and even now an open strategy to defy the government at all costs. This piece of history will be written up as an opportunity very nearly lost. Costing the British taxpayer billions of unnecessary pounds and showing probably one of the most inept governments in a thousand years.

    Nadine Dorries said yesterday that there was a deep and unhealthy strategy within parliament to derail the will of 17.4million people. Too many issues were now coming together and Mrs May was doing nothing to stem the flow. The anger within this country is growing.

    I do not know how this will end. If we are thwarted and end up half in and half out like Norway I truly think their will be a real constitutional crisis. I do not believe it will let Labour in because unlike Westminster, the people of this country are actually very intelligent. But there will be a tearing down of the Conservative Party and those Brexiteers across the House may well join forces to create a true People’s Party. There will the. Be total reform of the House of Lords and the House of Commons.

    Mrs May should have sacked Lord Adonis and stopped membership of the Party for Ken Clarke. However, Mrs. May is out of her depth, she is floundering. She is not in a weak position, she just believes what her SpAds tell her and they are all Remainers. A true leader would have been all over this as well as taking the whip away from Anna Soubry.

    It beggars believe that we have a truly great and capable country and yet we are governed by sycophants, troughers and kowtow ers.

    Yesterday in parliament a motion was passed to publish the effects of Brexit on the economy. One area that is not mentioned, is the projected path and consequences of the EU in following the EU project.

    I would expect such a report would cover the loss of sovereignty, taxation centralisation, largesse of the Commission, loss of Democracy, rationalisation, etc, etc.

  • Peter Divey

    Unfortunately, as you say, we are fighting on two fronts.

  • Whitehouse75p

    easy targets

    good luck defeating hammond, may and goldman sachs

  • fred finger the article says that if the ‘Donald Tusk said negotiations could end in “no Brexit” if the British government wanted to’. Giving the impression that the EU would agree if withdrawal would be agreed. In his speech he says no such thing, the pro EU Indy yet another Europhile.
