Having another tantrum and continuing to cement the narrative and the inevitable Brexit shit storm must be blamed on the EU:
THE SUN SAYS The EU needs to stop making insane demands and let us get on with negotiations or we freeze any future talks until we get a commitment
IT is now blindingly obvious to all that the EU is making insane and impossible demands.
It blames Britain for the Brexit deadlock. Anyone can see that is down to Brussels insisting on us offering up a monstrous exit payment without them promising anything firm in return.
Car buyers don’t agree a price without knowing what they’re paying for. David Davis would be out of his mind to buckle.
Even EU negotiator Michel Barnier must regret the untenable position Germany and France have put him in.
Next week they may let him make his first preparations for trade negotiations. But if Angela Merkel and President Macron refuse to let those begin in full without yet more concessions from Britain over our bill, we have little option.
We should schedule no further talks without a solid commitment to working out a transition and a free trade deal.
Only then should we talk money.
We must also make detailed preparations for a “no deal” — and hope they wake up to the folly of being pig-headed.
Merkel and Macron are jeopardising jobs and living standards across the UK and Europe. Leavers and Remainers, at loggerheads for so long, share a growing disgust for the EU’s brinkmanship.
Hearts here are hardening. We want a deal, but Britain will not be bullied. A survey shows a huge majority backing “no deal” over a bad one.
Brussels does not want that. It would be an economic and political calamity. But as the clock ticks that is the danger.
And if it happens, we fear an explosion of antipathy towards the EU — and the goods it will still want to sell us.
Now I haven't seen the interview, so it's possible Corbyn handled the question badly, but from I gather, Corbyn simply stated that he'd have preferred Sally “White Widow” Jones was arrested and stand trial rather than blown up (and potentially her young son) by a drone strike. He also expressed his concern about Drones and the potential of civilians being killed by them. Nothing unusual from a pacifist.
According to The Sun, this means he hates Our Boys and would prefer to risk their lives and spare terorists. Also, his concern for civilian casualties caused by drone strikes is "waffled about drones’ impact on civilians, and the need to examine all the facts, and so on and so on."
Jez drones on
IT should be a simple yes/no for any wannabe Prime Minister.
Would you have authorised a drone strike on Sally “White Widow” Jones to keep our troops out of harm’s way?
Jeremy Corbyn wriggled, complaining it was hypothetical. But so are ALL questions about what he would do as PM.
He said he’d rather Jones had simply been arrested, an act apparently as straightforward as everything else is in Jezza’s alternative fantasy land of magic.
Then he waffled about drones’ impact on civilians, and the need to examine all the facts, and so on and so on. From which blether we can only deduce this:
Corbyn WOULD risk our soldiers’ lives to spare a murderous IS terrorist posing a direct threat to Britain.
Why can’t he just be honest?
