You know I listen to the today program on Radio 4 most mornings, well afternoons out here. I'm pretty sure the presenters are all pro remain but are very even handed in their approach to the whole think. What is startling is they seem to pull the arms and legs off pretty much every fucker who comes on from whichever party whatever standpoint they have. The only exception somewhat bizarrely seems to be Rees Mogg who whenever I've heard him on there they can't lay a glove on him.
Personally I've always been out since 1992 after the sovereignty grab. Never gave a toss about migration, I'd actually happily ship some of the white British the opposite direction. What I'd not factored in was the inability of our politicians to do their fucking job or implement a plebiscite in any coherent manner.
This. Maastricht was Thatcher trying to write herself into the history book at the expense of her country. The fact that the current crop of coffee table socialists are behind every word of it is quite frankly stunning.
That. There's always someone who has to bring up Thatcher, isn't there?
Except. Thatcher did not have a hard on for Maastricht, not even a semi: "Because I believe in these principles so deeply I cannot support the ratification of the Maastricht treaty".
And even if she did, as she wasn't even an MP at that point she couldn't have voted for or against it, so I'm not sure why she's being dragged in at this point.
Perhaps it was all Blair's fault?
