Canadian Good Manners ‘Scolded’ by FCO Ex-Flunkey!

I’m not in the habit of praising Justin Turdo’s team, but Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau did the Dominion proud in London this week, by refusing to follow Obama’s arrogant intrusion into the UK Brexit debate.



On Friday, Mr. Morneau was asked three times to take a stand on the coming referendum, and was gently scolded when he refused.

It was some oaf named Cary who felt it proper to ‘scold’ a Cabinet Minister from a friendly country for behaving in an entirely appropriate manner in accordance with traditional diplomatic practice!

“I was a little disappointed in your answer on the coming referendum,” Anthony Cary, a former British high commissioner to Canada, told Mr. Morneau…He asked Mr. Morneau to clarify whether he agreed that it was in Canada’s interest to see Britain inside a strong EU.

So who’s this geezer Cary?


Anthony Cary


He’s Honorary President, British Committee of the Canada UK Council, but as a former FCO flunkey he’s clearly infected with the Europhiliac tendencies that pervade Whitehall and have done so for years.  

It must have been about thirty to forty years ago that the late great Enoch Powell identified the FCO as a ‘nest of vipers and a nursery of traitors’ and their shameful and unprofessional conduct during the 1975 Brexit referendum is well enough known.

I myself wrote about what an honest Tory MP told an audience of British patriots back in the days when I lived in London.  




Speaking of the ‘horrific pressure’ exerted on himself and other dissidents, he made no bones of the ‘fanatical’ attitudes which existed within the F.O., lodged in the minds of those who, ‘frustrated by the loss of Britain’s Great Power status,’ believed they ‘could manipulate their way into the big time’ by getting politicians to take us and keep us in Europe.

  • He identified their motive as a ‘thirst for power.’
  • To this end, they were quite prepared to sacrifice awkward Britons in the Falklands or Ulster so as not to make Britain unpopular with her Euro-partners in the prospective Third Force to which they aspired…. .’
  • The mandarins, Taylor said, wanted Britain to be ‘liked’ or even ‘loved’ so that they could continue to play a major role on the world stage.
  • They just could not adjust to our reduced status, because it impaired their self-esteem, as the elite of the government service….
  • …an arresting final quote from Taylor – he had, he stated, seen ‘excellent men take up office at the F.O. holding sound views but ‘within a few months they would be brainwashed.’ Loyalty To Whom? Cast-Iron Casts About for Coolie Commissar! 


Warnings of the same sort have been published much more recently. 

Double trouble for Britain: UK foreign policy establishment aiming to kill Britain

In a sad way, it’s logical, but the out-of-control British Foreign Office now needs to be locked down before it causes more damage


 Civil servants are supposed to be neutral. That includes the pin-striped stuck-ups at the FCO.

Mr. Cary no longer works for them, but his overt pro-Brussels bias clearly indicates what it takes to get ahead in the corridors of power in which the Foreign Office mandarins prowl.
