The Lisbon Treaty, or to give it its proper name the EU Constitution was initially rejected by both the Dutch and French electorates in referendums in 2005.  This sent the EU into a panic and caused a temporary abandonment of the constitution, but, true to form, it was revived a couple of years later as the Lisbon Treaty.  The architect of the EU Constitution, Giscard d’Estaing, freely admitted ...

Ah yes, those treaties like Maastricht and Lisbon which took us ever deeper into the EU without anyone being asked if we wanted that.  I clearly remember Gordon Brown avoided putting his name to the Lisbon document in the grand signing ceremony with other EU leaders, instead he did it separately all by himself, as though he was somehow ashamed to be seen signing it at all.

People bang on about Farage's penison, but at least he served a purpose and we are getting some kind of Brexit, without him we would be shackled to the corrupt EU forever.  Some of his speeches in the EU parliament were corkers and had Druncker, Schulz and the rest squirming in their seats. And let's not forget all the MEPs & commissioners past and present who will be getting their EU pension, ...

Anybody who thought Remainer Theresa May would live up to her "Brexit means Brexit" promise is an idiot.  The establishment has got what it wanted.

Dawlish has just been featured on Brit Cops: Frontline Crime, a house on Exeter Road being raided in a drugs bust. Not quite such positive publicity this time.
