He had obviously watched Mrs May' s interview with Marr as I did but we seem to have been watching two different interviews
The first sentence,
"Theresa May gave a feisty, articulate and cheerful performance under hostile fire from an increasingly tetchy Andrew Marr."
I do not recognise as the same interview. I thought Mrs May was hesitant, nervous and Marr was his usual ie not very good. I thought its lucky for Mrs May its not A F Neil doing the interview. If that had been the case I am sure May would not have agreed to it.
I agree with this from Kavanagh, indeed have written much the same myself wthout the benefit of Mr K's contacts or experience.
We are being sucked, deliberately and remorselessly, into a quagmire of delay and humiliation."
The last sentence describes exactly the EU tactics as Yanis the Greek spelt out. Its not only our negotiators who seem blind to this but so called Euro experts like blogger North. who seem to think they can out EU the EU. They can't. The game is set up so only the EU can win so the only sensible tactic is not to play it and walk away as one would do if it were a rigged horse race.
"EU leaders have made it abundantly clear they will never let Britain leave its clutches with a deal which sees us thrive and prosper alone." is another correct observation. It is a gruesome zero sum game in which a good result for the UK is perceived as a defeat for the EU.
This is a battle to the death, either the demise of our country or the demise of the EU. The complete lack of any criticism by the EU of the anti-democratic actions of the Spanish government shows this. Worse, our chief gloom monger, the EU phile Hammond refused this morning to condemn the actions of the Spanish government.
Its Hammond, the Lord Halifax of this government who should be sacked!
Britain's Foreign Secretary, Lord Halifax, at the outbreak of the Second World War, secretly met with an Old Etonian who tried to broker a peace deal with the Nazis, according to newly-declassified security files.
We need to start preparing right now for no deal with the EU.
