Since British readers have been indicating I’ve spent too much time on the anti-democracy antics in America, this morning, before I head into Jakarta’s heat, to meet some more people interested in my views on things, I bow to pressure and take a look at the news from the UK.
There, over the weekend, some 60 of her own MPs have warned Theresa May not to waste time trying to do deals about the Single Market.
And quite right too.
If Brits have goods and services to trade, and plenty of Continental customers seem to think so, it’s in Europe’s own best interests to keep the commercial links running smoothly.
But ‘Europe’ – not the real Europe, all those different peoples who are our best potential allies in the fight against cultural marxism – but the ideological menace, the Brussels elite…
….is NOT looking at the issue in economic terms at all.
Instead of weighing up what sort of trading arrangements might best serve the interests of the people under their – one hopes temporary – control, the EuroCommissars are out to make an example of the brave Brits who have declared for freedom.
