Julia Hartley-Brewer’s Twitter account is becoming one of the Internet’s most entertaining destinations for die-hard Brexiteers, and her latest exchange with ‘Mr EU’ Guy Verhofstadt shows that she isn’t afraid to call out the EU’s Brexit Coordinator whenever he starts mouthing off on Twitter.
In his latest piece of social media buffoonery, Verhofstadt even makes a ‘school boy’ error about the safety of security of the European Union compared to the rest of the world.
On Thursday, he said:

Oh Guy! You can add as many hashtags as you want but it won’t hide one very important point.
This all looks nice and cuddly enough, but it is clear that he is trying to knock the United Kingdom yet again by taking an underhand swipe at our decision to leave.
Fortunately, Julia Hartley-Brewer was quick to point out a glaring mistake in his tweet.
Name any two democratic nations *outside the EU* that have fought wars with each other in the past 70 years @guyverhofstadt.
You can’t. It’s never happened. It’s got nothing to do with being in the EU. https://t.co/ouFA0R0tc9

@guyverhofstadt. You can’t. It’s never happened. It’s got nothing to do with being in the EU.
Basically, she is saying that peace in Europe has absolutely nothing to do with the presence of the European Union – it is everything to do in fact with the concept of these countries all having democratic systems in place!
Here’s where it all gets even more hypocritical – Guy Verhofstadt is using the example of the Second World War to try and push the EU’s ridiculous agenda of ‘togetherness’ – many EU-lovers also churn out the same twaddle on a daily basis.
However, Remoaners love to attack people who use Winston Churchill to promote a sense of pride in being British!
You really couldn’t make it up.
While keeping the peace in the years immediately after 1945 may have been down to a new era of cooperation between European nations, to say that the EU is responsible for 70 years without a European war is just ludicrous.
The truth of the matter is that Europe looked at the horrors of World War 2 in the immediate aftermath and said ‘never again.’
It is also slightly ironic that Verhofstadt’s EU is in love with the idea of a United States of Europe.
A continent under the control of one single power. OK mate.
Some of the other Twitter replies are equally as scathing towards Verhofstadt.
@MorrisTwon said: NATO still pre-dates them and Verhofstadt clearly said EU. The EU’s predecessors, in whatever form, lacked the political and military frameworks to keep any peace. He is blatantly attempting to credit the current EU with an outcome that it had no part in playing, NATO kept peace.
That pretty much sums up the stupidity of Verhofstadt’s tweet. He seems to think that the EU has been going for longer than it actually has.
@RealTomEvans said: One country in particular is trying a different tack to rule Europe. Twice marching through countries didn’t work but fiscally it may.
Greece. Enough said.
