‘The old word for it is treason’ – David Starkey on the Brexit betrayal


ANYONE who hasn’t yet listened to Brendan O’Neill’s recent podcast with the historian David Starkey really, really should. Starkey expounds in great detail and with great clarity on the constitutionally illegitimate coup d’état we’re in effect going through at the hands of the combination of an incompetent government, an anti-democratic parliament, and a politically activist judiciary.

This clip from an earlier conversation with Peter Whittle on What You’re Saying Is is worth listening to as well. In just three or four minutes Starkey explains how Parliament’s Brexit betrayal has broken our democracy.

In the full-length interview from which this segment was extracted, the parallels Starkey draws between the Reformation and the present are fascinating: especially how Henry VIII made exactly the same mistakes as Theresa May – wasting two years negotiating with Rome on Rome’s terms, just as May did with Brussels. His account of how Cardinal Wolsey hated the idea of a split from Rome and the centralised authority of the Catholic Church, is also apposite. You can watch it here:
