I cannot remember how many times I forecast that in the Brexit (non) negotiations, the Europeans would not give us their nose pickings! Today, following their outright refusal to accept any of Mrs. May's soppy-soft, Chequers proposal in which she strove to find some sort of middle ground, it is now absolutely clear that we are out and out with no deal. For reasons 'that woman' (see previous post) understood all too well, the entire notion of a 'United States of Europe' has seized the imaginations of the 'apparatchiks' who, with their 'yuuuuge' pay, pensions and perks, are fanatical in their desire to keep the edifice in being. That is why, over the years, they have forced country after country to re-run their referenda until 'the peasants' vote the right way. They are now hell bent on doing the same to us. I think, I hope, I pray that we will remain as staunch in our determination to take back our independence as we did in 1940.
