They're just on Brexit autopilot now. Inane waffle.


THE SUN SAYS Brussels is still playing hardball because they know the Irish backstop is their golden ticket

ITALY is in recession, Germany’s economy is nose-diving.

What a moment for Brussels’ headbangers to risk a No Deal Brexit.

We know why they’re still playing hardball.

Michel Barnier admits they could probably find an alternative to the Irish backstop — but why would they?

It’s their golden ticket. A ruse to keep us trapped indefinitely and hobble us as a newly independent trading nation.

Plus, they believe Tory Remainers may bottle out before they do — and delay or halt Brexit. But that’s a huge gamble.

No Deal won’t affect unelected, unaccountable, untouchable eurocrats with monstrous salaries and fat pension pots.

But EU politicians should be terrified.

If the chaos finally tips the eurozone into recession, and hundreds of thousands lose their jobs in Ireland and across the continent, they won’t thank national leaders for sacrificing them on the altar of the sacred backstop.

They will join the clamour to escape the EU — and elect much less moderate politicians who will make it happen.



Fixing Britain

THE day after the referendum, The Sun called for billions to be pumped into ­working-class communities ignored by London’s politicians.

So Theresa May’s pledges to do just that in rundown coastal towns and Labour’s former mining heartlands are very welcome.

Even if they are decades late and a ploy to win votes for her deal.

New infrastructure, NHS upgrades and skills training are just what’s needed.

But we would go further, with radical regional tax breaks to lure employers.

Rebalancing our economy towards Leave-voting areas and away from comfortably off Remain ones is what any Government should be doing.

Labour’s “people’s vote” bores are hysterical about it, of course.

The status quo suits them fine and Mrs May’s tactic could — shock, horror — secure Brexit.

The fact they are crying foul, and would rather get their way than see hard-up towns bailed out by a Tory Government, shows how warped their priorities now are.






Off you pop

THEY can’t help themselves, can they?

Remoaners, some in Cabinet, are itching to rubbish our chances of securing the legal assurances we need.

They champ at the bit to “rule out No Deal”, to surrender every last scrap of our leverage, to ensure a meaningless, supersoft Brexit or even halt it.

They cannot even keep a lid on it for two weeks while their Prime Minister and her negotiators try to secure a better deal in the national interest.

If our mediocre Business Secretary Greg Clark — and others who will never reconcile themselves to the majority’s Brexit decision — are so keen to rebel, let them get on with it.

Quit today, or back the PM and belt up.

The Sun's problem like most Brexiters is they can't envisage international relations beyond mercantile transactions. They failed to predict any moves that the EU has made as they don't understand what it is. Despite a clue in the word 'union'.

THE SUN SAYS The Tories must give no thought to a General Election and instead focus on reforms after Brexit

ANYBODY in the Tory Party even considering a June election needs their head examined.

The public is sick to the back teeth of politicians seemingly unable to carry out the task set for them twice over in a Referendum and a General Election: to take us out of the European Union, with a good deal or a managed clean break.

For the first time in months, Parliament last week took a giant step in that direction – and the Prime Minister and the Cabinet should be focussed on delivering the changes to the backstop that the Commons demanded.

That should be the only thing on anybody's mind in Westminster.

Once we are free of the EU’s shackles, the priority must be to supercharge the British economy, with a new Chancellor and a reinvigorated party setting a course for Britain to become ever more competitive on the global stage.

The Party can start on genuine reform of the Health Service, and allow British businesses to be at the forefront of new technology.

The Tories must show real progress on housing and welfare reform.

Nobody in the Government should imagine they’ll romp to victory in an election just because they’re up against Jeremy Corbyn’s Venezuela-flavoured socialism.
That didn’t work last time, and it might well fail again.

The Tories shouldn’t give a single thought to an election this summer.

But they must start building a track record that can win a General Election in the years to come.



We back Britain

NO doubt about it, Nissan’s decision not to build the X-Trail in Sunderland is a blow to UK Plc.

But it is not, as inexplicably smug Remainers are crowing, entirely due to Brexit.

It’s as much about Brits increasingly not buying diesel cars as it is about our future trading relationships with the Continent.

And the joy with which some on the left are greeting the news is perverse. Do they not want Britain to succeed?

Do they not see that their bizarre, condescending attitude is EXACTLY why they lost in 2016?






Suicide crisis

THE rocketing suicide rate amongst teenagers is nothing short of a national crisis.

And the solution MUST involve the social media firms who are profiting from youngsters’ suffering.

They have been given quite enough warning that they are not doing enough to protect vulnerable kids.

They have said for years that they just need a bit more time, and that they’d fix the problem themselves.

Well, they’ve failed.

Government has no choice but to step in – and it needs a concerted effort from the Education, Health and Culture Departments.

One more tragic death is one too many.

These Remainers who beleive that only exist in your head. As Brexiters can’t do nuance and complexity they assume no one else can.

This is how The Sun sum up all the lies and lawbreaking done by the Leave campaign:

an over-optimistic prediction or two and a slightly inaccurate bus slogan.

They're rattled:
THE SUN SAYS Remainers can’t accuse Leavers of ‘lies’ when they push Project Fear exaggerations about No Deal anarchy

HOW can Remainers still be accusing Leavers of “lies” given THEIR ludicrous yarns?

It’s not just the latest cobblers they seized on about the Queen being whisked to safety from rioting hordes descending on Buckingham Palace when food and medicines run out.

It’s David Cameron pretending back in 2016 that a Remain vote would empower him to fix the EU, as if Brussels was remotely interested in reform.

It’s George Osborne’s Project Fear tosh about an immediate crash after a Leave vote. It’s the wild exaggerations of Project Fear II about No Deal anarchy.

It’s the Remainer MPs who voted to trigger Article 50, then lied to voters about respecting the referendum result even as they plotted to reverse it.

It’s the brass-necked Tory MP who claimed “Brexiteers were lying when they said Nissan was going nowhere” — long after it was clear the war on diesel was really to blame for the U-turn on the new model in Sunderland.

Next to all that, an over-optimistic prediction or two and a slightly inaccurate bus slogan look small beer.

Lies? Remain ultras should look in the mirror.

Labour MP Richard Burgon wins 'Nazi' libel case against Sun

MP wins £30,000 damages from tabloid over false claim he performed with band that ‘delighted’ in Nazi imagery

It was a pastiche of a Black Sabbath cover with standard Heavy Metal* typography which the Sun knew about before writing the article. You'd have thought the Sun would praise an MP for having a hinterland beyond the Westminister bubble. From what I heard the band laughed it off and enjoyed the promotion but Burgon was still angry for dragging in his friends who weren't involved in politics. Fair play to him for that he sounds like a good mate even if he is a crap politician.

* A reference to the music genre not something ex-SOGAT members nostalgically reminisce about

So after calling likening the EU to the mob, Nazis, calling them alcoholics, rats and tinpot dictators and many more insults, The Sun are now outraged by lack of manners...


THE SUN SAYS Donald Tusk’s hatred for Brexit and tantrums show his disregard for democracy

WE knew one of the EU’s leaders is a ­staggering drunk. Turns out the other is a staggering fool. Donald Tusk is meant to be the sensible one. The diplomat.

Yet with one jaw-droppingly crass ­diatribe about Brexit campaigners he has further poisoned the negotiating well and converted hordes of aghast Remainers to Leave’s cause.

What possessed him? What did he hope to gain from such a tantrum?

Did he think Boris Johnson and others alone would feel chastened?

That 17.4million Leave voters wouldn’t feel they too were being abused? It couldn’t be clearer what disdain Tusk and his arrogant acolytes also have for them.

The Sun doesn’t believe in hell, or a “special place” roped off there awaiting leading Brexiteers.

But if we wanted to match Tusk’s juvenile rhetoric, we might speculate that Satan’s flames are more likely to consume an unaccountable elite whose ideology condemned millions across the continent to long-term unemployment.

Who have such disregard for democracy that they have tried endlessly to bully its oldest champions into reversing our biggest ever ballot box mandate.

Who are so desperate to hobble Britain that they seek to impose exit terms so vengeful and harsh they would tear our United Kingdom apart.

It’s no surprise to see diehard Remainers like Anna Soubry spinning for Tusk.

More moderate ones now see that these sneering, sniggering goons are exactly why we voted as we did on June 23, 2016.

Childish vitriol aside, just remember this, the next time the Sun celebrates a serial killer or paedophile dying, or a video being burned. They don't believe in hell, or by extension heaven, or presumably any other accoutrements of religion.
