Only a very small note here over the latest pieces of negotiating idiocy from the French concerning Brexit. Sure, so, OK, we’ll lose our commissioner – not a great problem, they all go native anyway. But this:
France has been an outspoken critic of allowing the UK to extend its EU membership without a clear plan, suggesting that Britain’s crisis should not be allowed to take the bloc “hostage”.
If we had a clear plan about what we were going to do, one that could be agreed upon, then we wouldn’t be asking for a delay, would we?
Dear Lord, seriously, who wants to stay in a political union with people this stupid?
