Anna Soubry speaks for Britain and speaks complete sense; Theresa May should take note
Anna Soubry MP is a rare thing: A politician of conviction and one whose sensible nature is completely clear. Not guided, unlike her grasping colleagues by personal and party politicial ambitions, but instead by a belief in what she thinks is right for the country, here is a lady of logic and stature.
In an article in today’s Mail on Sunday, Ms Soubry states: “My country must come before my party” and adds: “We must face up to the Brexit reality: It is fantasy to think we are going to get a good deal from the EU based on country negotiating strategy. People will soon see how they have been conned by the Brexiteers. All options must go back on the table.”
She adds: “Brexit is a self-inflicted wound; the people of this country hold the knife and they don’t have to use it if they don’t want to. The people, not the hardline Brexiteers, are in charge.”
Ms Soubry is entirely right. Instead of wandering through the Alps for three works, Mrs May should be at work at this crucial time. She should be seeking the best deal for our country and she be putting a stop to the recklessness of ‘Hard Brexit’. It is time this hapless Prime Minister woke up and smelled the coffee.
Stupid f***ing woman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She should bow to Teresa May’s feet and kiss them!!!!!!!!!!!! She should not be speaking out of turn!!!!!!!!!!! Traitor!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lock the cow up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nothing like calm, clear political analysis.
Rod always seems to tell it like it isn’t.
I would suggest Rod that you keep in touch with what half the country believes, that Brexit is a forthcoming disaster.
Mrs May needs to pack her new flugelhorn , dirndl, as well as her husbands lederhosen and head off to her threshing barn.
I do wish Duck you would try to write sense.
The EU is facing an semi existential crisis.
Poland, Hungary et al are already getting difficult to manage. The € is strong only because the ECB is hard at the printing presses.
If this experiment in forcing integration upon a culturally diverse group of people was the success being claimed are member populations so lacking in enthusiasm? Yes, I know what the polls say but the reality is that the people’s of the EU have been terrified by the Nazi like scare tactics employed by the EU High Command.
Only an idiot like Plastic Duck thinks that you can ever have one currency fitting all economies. It has taken the US centuries to achieve equilibrium.
I have never read such twaddle as the article here. Every single one in the house of commons is a self serving chancer. Male or Female and as some one who has detested the EU since its inception I am probably biased but her sort of doom monger should be aware of the damage they are doing and your contributors either as journalist or correspondent should grow up and discuss things rationallly not hero worshipping or gratuitously insulting people. One persons opinion does not represent that of the majority
A drunkard…no more and no less
She only just held on to her seat: shows what a low opinion voters had of her.
She does seem to have an alcohol issue
I did read a rather nice comment…..
“My interpretation of leaving is this:- The UK had a stall in the centre of a large Supermarket enabling it to do V.good business. Some people (who were not aware of all the advantages) complained that the rent was too high and the UK could trade equally as well from the car park. So after a vote, and by a small majority, they inform the Supermarket Bosses that they are leaving, with the idea of trading from the car park and saving the rent !! The Bosses inform the UK that they own the car park so that arrangement will not be allowed. The result will be that the Supermarket will carry on and thrive, while the UK will have to take up residence in a small shop on corner of the road opposite. How many of us will drive past the Supermarket, to go into the small corner shop? Coming out of the Common Market is far more serious that the “Average Joe” realises. I rest my case.”
