Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Craig Byers’s BBC Watch: Auntie concedes political bias – but only against Corbynistas, Matt wrote:
“I nearly choked on a sandwich earlier. On Red-Dot, the Beeb is reporting the ONS results, which show no discernible effects to the economy of a Brexit vote….to date.
So perhaps the prophets of doom will take a break till after the negotiations?”
TCW Hero of the Week
Boris Johnson has said that we need not bother too much about jumping through Brussels’ Brexit hoops.
The Foreign Secretary reckons it need not take a full two years to complete our exit from the EU.
Quite right. Brexit should be quick and simple. If Brussels won’t offer a tariff-free trade deal, we should quit and revert to WTO rules.
TCW Villain of the Week
European Parliament president Martin Schulz is continuing to fight the last war.
On a visit to the UK, Schulz said that the Leave campaign got “so nasty” that an MP was “brutally murdered, in broad daylight, for her political convictions”.
Linking Cox’s tragic killing to the Leave campaign is outrageous. Schulz and his fellow Eurocrats should learn to accept the democratic will of the British people. They have had enough of Brussels.
