The Telegraph shouted: May accused of Brexit climbdown as UK agrees to free movement in the transition period! On twitter, Brexiteers screamed NO. NO NO!
Breitbart reports: David Davis — whose formerly tough pro-Brexit stance seems to have been worn down during his time negotiating in Brussels to a point where he greeted today’s news of another massive capitulation as good news — spoke next and dropped the fisheries bombshell, admitting that not only would Britain not take back control of its fisheries, but that the proportion of fish that UK fishermen are allowed to catch from their own waters under EU laws wouldn’t change through the transition.

The Italian vote has thrilled Brexiteers. The insurgent Five Star Movement finished as the country’s biggest party by far, and the anti-immigration La Lega as the strongest force on the right. This raises questions not just about Italy’s capacity to pursue domestic reforms, but also its inclination to play any part in planned closer EU and eurozone integration.
Sky News was ominously silent on the entire subjext this morning! As one headache subsided, the EU was suddenly in the grip of a migraine. Continue reading

Brexiteers are sick of the negatitivity of Remoaners! OK, they have had their say in the name of free speech. but if there had been any grounds at all for cancelling Brexit Remoaners would have done it by now. It is the turn of democracy to speak. PM Cameron pledged that the voice of the British people would be respected. Not ignored. According to Anthony Browne, a former aide of Boris Johnson , we have plenty of reasons to be happy over Brexit. Anthony lists 15 of them below, and this article is via The Spectator.

After the excellent interview between Piers Morgan and Donald Trump, the latest You Gov poll shows that a majority now support a state visit by the US President. In my opinion, the antagonism to the President was never half as bad as the media made out anyway. It was fuelled by Remainers , furious that Brexiteers have such a powerful ally in their fight to be rid of the EU.
The figures are now 45% to 39% in favour. Remoaners have tried their hardest to disrupt the deeply held affection of President Trump for Britain, particularly Scotland. Remoaner Theresa May has also been less than tactful, in silly attempts to “slap down” the President. He has just brushed her aside like a pesky mosquito. Continue reading

Theresa May has been forced to issue a statement that we will leaving the customs union, no doubt to the fury of Amber Rudd, Philip Hammond and the civil service. Sitting on the fence for May is no longer an option. The PM can no longer get away with statements like “I have an open mind on the customs union”
The Sun reports: Theresa May was last night forced to rule out any form of customs union with the EU after Tory Brexiteers threatened a mass walk-out. Continue reading
It appears a massive sellout is on the cards, as arrogant Philip Hammond told the CBI “Things will hardly change and we are keeping free movement.” There was outrage from Brexiteers, but traitor Hammond has only rowed back by saying we will be leaving the single market and customs union. He did’t comment on free movement.
Now the Sun reports quisling David Davis, who has been a huge disappointment, was about to deliver a speech to Brexiteers saying “It’s going to be sh….t but you have to suck it up!” After a mild reproof to Hammond, panicky May urged Davis to wind his neck in and water down the speech.
As most commentators have already pointed out, Boris Johnson was repeatedly knifed by May, Hammond and the Remainer cabinet for telling the truth abut the NHS, and Hammond escapes with a feeble reprimand. Spreadsheet Phil should be sacked. Continue reading
Boris is exonerated over the ad. on the battle bus. About ruddy time!
The Bruges group goes even further . They say quite rightly, when calculating the amount of money we give the EU, it is only right to include what we have paid in bailouts, So that works out at £660M a week.
