May and Juncker’s Downing Street dinner: an alternative view

The Brussels propaganda machine, propped up by our mainstream media and Brit-hating Remainers, is now in full flow following the dinner between Theresa May and Jean-Claude Juncker.

According to their (one-sided) version of events, the meeting proved that May was not briefed and “living on another galaxy”. If you think this reaction was manipulative, just wait until the negotiations formally get under way.

Here are our five alternative conclusions from the encounter:

 

  1. Theresa May proved good on her promise

A lot has been written about May’s integrity and true agenda in recent days. And with a general election to contest, many in the UKIP camp are accusing May of not truly wanting to deliver on the promises she has made about what Brexit will look like. Time will tell of course but let’s clear one thing up: yes, she voted Remain but it was reluctantly done and she has long been considered a Eurosceptic. David Cameron reportedly threatened to sack her from his cabinet due to her reluctance to back his staunch pro-EU stance and her tactics in the EU referendum campaign were clearly, in our view, done with half an eye on the outcome and wanting a shot at the top job. Does it make her a career politician? Probably. Does it make her ruthless? Possibly. But nobody can accuse her of being a “staunch” Remainer because she quite simply isn’t.

Since becoming Prime Minister she has repeatedly said she will deliver Brexit in full – meaning an end to free movement of people as well as leaving the single market and customs union. This leaked transcript, if it is to be believed, proves her doubters wrong and paints a picture of a lady fighting hard for a Brexit we all want. On Britain’s so-called ‘divorce bill’ she told Juncker that the UK was not legally obliged to pay them “a penny” to which the European Commission president then threatened the viability of a free trade deal. May is not afraid of having difficult conversations and Brexiteers should now unite behind her because, as she says herself, every vote for her in June will strengthen her hand in the negotiations.

  1. EU resistance show Brexiters to be right yet again

Unsurprisingly the attitude from the EU stinks. And while many with an agenda are trying to paint a picture of ‘We told you the negotiations would be severe and the EU27 would set out to punish Britain’ they fail to realise that it’s this kind of shady manipulation from the Brussels oligarchy that persuaded many to vote Leave. The dinner between May and Juncker and the subsequent leak in a German newspaper only serves to reinforce the fact that our decision taken in last year’s referendum was a wise one.

Many have criticised May for leaving the futures of EU and British expats in limbo and yet, when she indicated a willingness to settle the issue promptly, those same people are now calling her “deluded” for underestimating the complexity. Nobody is denying it’s complex but please acknowledge the hypocrisy here. The more the EU treats democratic nations like Britain with utter contempt, the more resilient people will be in standing by their decision.

  1. Polls prove media bias

You’d be forgiving for thinking, listening to the consternation in the media, that the dinner was a complete disaster for May and journalists have been only too happy to label it a “mini-crisis” and regurgitate the line that Juncker thinks it is “more than likely” the talks will collapse and that he hopes Brits “wake up to the harsh realities” in time. Yet the majority of Briton’s are not concerned about the talks collapsing and a new YouGov poll suggests 46 per cent think ‘No deal is better than a bad deal’ compared to just 22 per cent who think ‘A bad deal is better than no deal’. Jean-Claude-Juncker-Theresa-May-692868

In the same way that the predications of economic Armageddon immediately after Brexit failed to materialise, forecasts that reverting to WTO trading terms would also be the end of the world are again wide of the mark. The shrinking EU needs to be reminded that it relies heavily on UK markets, intelligence and military and it would be foolish to act so bullishly over the terms of settlement. But if Germany simply won’t play ball, Britain as the world’s sixth largest economy is more than strong enough to go it alone successfully.

  1. Language again used to manipulate

Remainers are cosying up to their EU counterparts as they share a depressing common goal: wanting Britain to fail. And in this drive to change public perception, language is yet again being used to misrepresent and exaggerate the situation. We’ve seen people like former Labour MEP Michael Cashman jumping on the events and describing it as proof that the Prime Minister is “deluded” and her government “incompetent”. When we challenged him fairly on Twitter, he promptly blocked us. Some of the key journalists that broke the story have described May as “labouring under misconceptions” about Brexit and the contents of the leak “horrifying” and “deeply worrying” for the UK. Such blatant provocation and propaganda, none of which would have been released without Berlin’s blessing, should be taken with a pinch of salt and viewed more pragmatically than those with a very clear and real agenda.

  1. EU clearly threatened by May

May has previously been praised for her Thatcher-like steely determination and the release of this information in such graphic detail does suggest a Brussels club which feels threatened by our nation’s figurehead. Why else would details such as May’s apparent arrogance at being re-elected next month have been released? “May has made it clear to the Commission that she fully expects to be reselected as PM,” the report said. While that may well be true, this is yet another snide attempt to influence Britain’s democratic process and delivering May a strong majority will undoubtedly worry this ruthless, opaque institution.

In conclusion, we are at war here with a significant minority of the population and their wealthy backers and Europhile counterparts and it is high time Brexit voters faced this reality and came together in unity. Voting Conservative is less than ideal for many Brexit voters but looking at the wider picture is the only viable and sensible option as we gear up for this multi-faceted duel with so many detractors.
