THE SUN SAYS How tediously predictable Remainers would trash Boris Johnson’s Brexit offer even before Brussels did

HOW tediously predictable that Parliament’s Remainers would trash Boris Johnson’s Brexit offer even before Brussels did.

Somehow they had every confidence the EU would join in the barrage of ­negativity and, hours later, so it proved.

This is a choreographed assault.

The last thing Remain diehards want is for Boris to actually pull this off. He would then win an election by a mile.

Forget their affected concern about No Deal. Remainers don’t want ANY deal. Look at Labour: Corbyn has some “Labour Brexit” fantasy in his head — but has even vowed to campaign against THAT.

These MPs are not honest brokers. We doubt some actually read Boris’s deal — much like the European Parliament vice-president who admitted she hadn’t, even as she attacked it on radio.

It is in fact a generous, reasonable and detailed proposal which could win a Commons majority. Enough MPs probably WILL do their duty by voters.

But Ireland still refuses to accept that Brexit must happen. And it won’t budge while it still believes there are like-minded MPs who could seize power and secure a second referendum.

Is there any point in Boris wasting more time negotiating, when Brussels is relying on its Westminster stooges to pull the rug from under him?








Eco vandals

THE infantile Extinction Rebellion protest at the Treasury is the sort of act of self-harm that will, with luck, destroy this mob.

Only these hypocritical eco vandals could imagine that driving a diesel-guzzling fire engine into London and spraying a historic Government building with “blood” helps their “cause”.

Next week they hope to orchestrate chaos across the capital. The Met must be ruthless in preventing it. No jolly coppers dancing and banging tambourines. Just rigid enforcement of the law.

This is a doomsday cult run by Marxist revolutionaries, falsely claiming that the science predicts imminent mass extinction. It does not.

This group has duped plenty of well-meaning kids and others old enough to know better. They must NOT be allowed to inflict misery and economic damage.

The Met and London’s Mayor must beware. Britain is watching them.

Why, Tony Gallagher, should the Irish government be beholden to the UK in any respect, save for treaty obligations?

THEY'RE AN INDEPENDENT FUCKING COUNTRY!

To (para)quote Ian Dunt on the latest Remainiacs:

'This proposal is being offered to an island whose constituent parts don't want Brexit. Ireland didn't ask for this shit, NI didn't vote for it.'

DEMOCRACYYYYYY

WHEN Angela Merkel gave Boris Johnson 30 days to solve the Irish border issue, it looked like mission impossible.

“You’ll fail!” squealed the Brexit doom-mongers, as always.

Except Boris then produced a credible and workable solution.

But, guess what? The EU still won’t resume serious talks.
Yes. Because it wasn't a credible and workable solution.
Michel Barnier says we must “fundamentally amend” our position — and that WE will be to blame for a No Deal.
Indeed. He made that clear because he's got your number and knows full well you will try and say this:
Nonsense. Blame will lie with the Remainer elite plotting to thwart Brexit — and the EU which has put its faith in them.


Backing Boris

WHEN Angela Merkel gave Boris Johnson 30 days to solve the Irish border issue, it looked like mission impossible.

“You’ll fail!” squealed the Brexit doom-mongers, as always.

But, guess what? The EU still won’t resume serious talks. Michel Barnier says we must “fundamentally amend” our position — and that WE will be to blame for a No Deal.

Nonsense. Blame will lie with the Remainer elite plotting to thwart Brexit — and the EU which has put its faith in them. As long as they scheme to keep us in, Brussels has no need to compromise.

Remainers are now so desperate they are reportedly even considering Ed Miliband, of all people, as PM of their bogus “Government” of Remainer unity.

What the voters want seems utterly irrelevant to this cabal threatening our democracy.

Barnier will only budge when he grasps that Britain is serious about Boris’s deal. That could yet come if it passes a Commons vote, as it now might.

The PM has more support in the Commons than Remainers think — and, as polls show, vastly more among the public.

When Remainers say “no one voted for No Deal”, they are in denial about the millions now wanting just to get Brexit done whatever it takes.





Sadiq’s farce

FOR years he’s lectured us all about having too little money to fight knife crime.

But could it be that London Mayor Sadiq Khan spent it all on meaningless initiatives?

Take the results from his Online Hate Crime Hub. His so-called “Twitter squad” was given £1.7million of public funds to tackle social media abuse.

The result? Six internet trolls brought to justice — none jailed.

City Hall dealt with two cases a day — with a team of five Scotland Yard officers, one a detective.

What a fiasco.





A thin idea

OUR obesity crisis has reached shocking levels.

A Sun investigation has uncovered that record numbers of kids need critical NHS treatment for fat-related conditions such as Type 2 diabetes.

Medical busybodies have jumped on it — any excuse to promote the regressive sugar tax. Ex-Government advisor Dame Sally Davies wants it expanded.

But the sugar tax does only one thing - makes shopping more expensive, particularly for the poor. There is no evidence it’s making anyone less obese.

The answer to that is far simpler and lies in the hands of parents and schools:

Children should eat less, exercise more — and be taught early on how essential a healthy diet is.



Children should eat less, exercise more — and be taught early on how essential a healthy diet is.
*Sigh* :roll:

Whenever they (experts) do try to teach people about a healthy diet The Sun immeditely starting screeching "OMFGZ THEY'RE TRYING TO STEAL OUR BACON OFF US!!!111"

Now The Sun is trying to apportion blame for No Deal it's clear they've recognised how bad it is. They are also trying to distance themselves from it and act as if they don't want it, have never wanted it, and it's a last resort and it'll be others peoples fault.

Because of that I just wanted to document a few of their past views on No Deal:



December 2018
NO DEAL? NO WORRIES The European Union has more to lose from a No Deal Brexit than a well-prepared UK
https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/brexit/80 ... r-britain/
Janurary 2019
THE SUN SAYS Leaver MPs must fight and not cave in — No Deal Brexit is not national suicide
[/quote]
October 2018
THE SUN SAYS Mrs May needs every ounce of courage over the next fortnight to make sure Britain isn’t railroaded into a bad deal Brexit by Brussels

But no deal IS better than the bad ones Brussels aims to railroad her into.
March 2018
THE SUN SAYS The EU’s response to Theresa May’s speech shows that waiting for Brussels to see reason is hopeless and a waste of time

Britain cannot just plod on in hope. Time is too short. We should refocus every effort on a no-deal.
June 2018
Wake up, PM
THE prediction of a no-deal Brexit apocalypse is both ludicrous and hysterical.

A civil service briefing claims it would leave us without food, petrol and medicines.

Jacob Rees-Mogg has rightly dismissed it as “Project Fear on speed”. It is a wicked attempt to terrify us into bottling a no-deal Brexit.
September 2017
Making the UK suffer will remain crucial to the EU until Theresa May shows she’s serious about walking away

As ex-Chancellor Lord Lawson says, we have nothing to fear from a “no deal” and from trading on WTO terms.
January 2017
THE SUN SAYS Theresa May’s Brexit speech was historic and a game-changer for Britain and Brussels

We are leaving. That’s that. No half-measures. If we cannot strike a decent deal we will walk away. Better no deal than a bad one.

Anyway, here's today's offerings and I must say, I fully agree with the first one. If they refuse to send her back to face justice that is a serious fucking kick in the face to the Boris/Trump relationship and the "Special Relationship" in general.


THE SUN SAYS America must send back diplomat’s wife Anne Sacoolas to face justice over the ­killing of motorcyclist Harry Dunn

AMERICA must send back diplomat’s wife Anne Sacoolas to face justice over the ­killing of motorcyclist Harry Dunn.

It is an outrage that the US embassy advised her to skip the country, claiming diplomatic immunity. Even more so that she did not have the backbone to refuse it and face the music.

The UK would not hide the wife of one of our envoys and leave two distraught Americans to grieve for their child.

Boris Johnson is right to take up the case with Donald Trump. Spiriting a suspect out of the country after a deadly road crash is the act of a tinpot dictatorship, not our greatest friend and ally.

The US should be ashamed. The President should act.





This was always coming:

Ego warriors

THERE is no better proof of the bubble in which luvvie celebs live than their brainless, uncritical support of the Marxist doomsday cult Extinction Rebellion.

The hysterical, costumed dupes clogging London’s streets claim “billions will die imminently” and that our Government is “leading us to extinction”. It is Grade A, cast-iron, ocean- going ­cobblers, not supported by the science and staggeringly irresponsible.

In fact THEIR solution, “zero carbon” by 2025, represents the fastest route to destabilising and starving half the planet.

Why do jet-setting millionaires like Stephen Fry and Alan Carr swallow it? Do they not know which country has cut emissions fastest in the developed world? It’s Britain, under the Tories.

Do they know our share of global greenhouse gases is now just 1.2 per cent? If so, why back a group trying to bring OUR capital to its knees? Especially one whose founders admit their real aim is to destroy capitalism.

As for its financial backers, we despair.

Do Radiohead not see a problem claiming globe-trotting flights are vital to do their work, as they fund a mob stopping ordinary people getting to THEIR jobs by bus?











Rattled snakes

THE EU’s concern over the Irish border is a sham. Its real fear is a Britain reborn as a low-tax competitor on its doorstep.

Understand that, and its trashing of the UK’s sensible offer makes sense.

Brussels know they will need to do checks away from the border if we leave with No Deal. When Boris suggests it, they say it’s impossible. Why? Because they still hope to use that to stop Brexit.

It’s not just that the EU wants our ­billions to keep coming. It’s that it — and France in particular — fears Brexit will work . . . thanks to tax cuts, a ­bonfire of red tape and new trade deals.

They cannot openly admit that. So they pretend Boris’s offer wasn’t serious, that he prefers No Deal. It’s nonsense.

They have never negotiated in good faith and we doubt they will.

Fastest way to starve half the world? I suppose they'd rather the fishless oceans predicted by 2030. Taking back control of our waters innit.

This might well have been true then, and might still be true.

Now, if only there were a well-prepared UK available.

Radiohead are extinction rebellions financial backers? Presumably on the basis they put 18 hours worth of hacked mini discs on bandcamp for 18 days at £1 per hour and donated the proceeds. Radiohead fans are renown for being a tad zealous, and I'm not sure if the actual amount raised has ever actually been revealed, but somehow I doubt we are talking George Soros here.

Anyway, I'm still waiting for the vinyl box set.
