Channel 4 have re-released a news interview clip with Theresa May from a few months ago where the Prime Minister tried to convince everyone that she has done a good job as far as immigration is concerned.
We are beginning to admire Channel 4 in terms of their news output. We know that there is a strong left-wing bias, but from time to time they put out material that benefits other areas of the political spectrum.
An incident between John Snow and Jeremy Corbyn last year springs to mind!
Anyway here it is, with the added bonus of Jeremy Corbyn’s Paxman Showdown as well …
We have covered Jeremy Corbyn’s many shortcomings in the past, but on this occasion Facebook commenters have been particularly brutal towards Theresa May as well.
This is mainly because her remarks to Paxman were at a time when she was fighting a general election campaign, and we all know how that turned out.
She went from being in the lead by ‘a country mile’ to having to scramble around for a backdoor deal with the DUP just to remain in power – the concept of her ‘constant work’ on the subject seems to have irritated a lot of people as well.
Crap lying home secretary. Crap lying PM.
I call it an unmitigated disaster.
May can talk for hours saying nothing, oblivious to her failure and the damage she has done to the country.
Constant work but in whose favour ? Not ours!
It will be interesting to see if another election is called in 2018 over the government’s handling of Brexit in particular, as the chickens could well and truly ‘come home to roost.’
The only problem with that happening is that we would inevitably see a Labour government, which would be twice as bad.
Are we screwed? Is it time to make the best of a bad situation?
WATCH: Lord Lawson BLASTS Verhofstadt as ‘EU PROPAGANDA’
Lord Lawson perfectly summed up who Verhofstadt is to the European Union and we all agree with him.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Lord Lawson said: “Verhofstadt is just EU propaganda.
“You don’t need to take him seriously.”
He said: “I mean the people who matter are the leaders of France and Germany.
“Although, there’s a problem with Germany now because they don’t know who their leader is following the inconclusive election result the other day. Macron in France is in a strong position but Angela Merkel in Germany is certainly not.”
I 100% agree with his comments.
The EU has a verity of propaganda puppets and this clown is one of them!
He speaks rubbish. It’s painful to listen to.
Guy Verhofstadt is about to offer every UK citizen the option to remain an EU citizen
It has emerged that the European Union’s Chief Negotiator Guy Verhofstadt is about to offer every UK citizen the option to remain a citizen of the EU.
Speaking to the European Parliament’s Committee on Constitutional Affairs on this issue, he said:
“We come to the vote of this important amendment 882, tabled by colleague Charles Goerens. It is an important amendment that has captured the imagination and hopes of many of the 48 per cent of Brits that have voted to remain in the EU.
“You will all have received many emails about this – and there has been many articles about this.
“It has therefore become a very important issue that cannot await treaty change – as envisaged by Charles when he first tabled it.
“I am therefore proposing to remove it from my report – which after all is concerned with Treaty change – and to include it in the negotiations we will have with the UK Government.
“I as Brexit negotiator for the Parliament will ensure that it is included in the parliament’s negotiating mandate.”
Responding in a statement, Mr Goerens said: “Today I decided together with Guy Verhofstadt to withdraw my amendment on associate EU citizenship.
“We realised that this has become a very important issue that cannot await treaty change – as was my intention when I first tabled my amendment – since this might take years.
“Yesterday evening, the House of Commons decided by a majority of almost 400 to support Theresa Mays plan to trigger Article 50 by the end of March 2017.
“Hence the prospect that this Article 50 will be invoked has become very real indeed.
“The European Parliament will define its position on the Brexit agreement through a resolution during spring 2017.
“This seems to be the best opportunity to give Brexit negotiator Guy Verhofstadt the possibility to enforce the associate EU citizenship.
“I recognise this might come as a surprise to many of you, but please understand that the abovementioned procedure makes it much more likely for the associate EU citizenship to succeed than through an amendment.”
So it is now looking more and more likely that the die-hard Remainers will have a way out, and in the process they were proudly take their place in a ‘divided society’ – the very concept that they have been screaming blue bloody murder about ever since the referendum result in June 2016.
You couldn’t make it up!
