Barbara Castle, Tony Benn,Clem Attlee, Hugh Gaitskell and the now all but forgotten Peter Shore.
They all warned against the takeover of our country if we got tied to the Common Mar
Attlee made the Leaver argument in the 50 s that Common Market was an inward looking protectionist club that if we were lured into would mean us giving up on our previous deep sea trade links established over the previous 200 years for a Napoleonic dream of world domination via shrinking trade. Nor since Esau sold his birthright to Jacob for a mess of pottage has there been a worse deal than the one Heat signed us up to in 1973. We sold our birthright as a freeborn people to be ruled by a Franco Prussian unelected political elite who bribed our political leaders with our own money. No wonder we are being trounced in the Brexit negotiations. Its the same club that signed us up in 1975 that are still running and ruining our country.
Farage is no Attlee but I trust him not to pull his punches when he meets Barnier, the perfumed, coiffed frog on Monday. Nigel will remember those who fought and died. in Flanders as the price our country paid for being at the heart of Europe.Pray it never happens again.
