IT is a well-documented piece of British history that prior to the Second World War the then Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain negotiated long and hard with Adolf Hitler.
‘Peace in our time’ proved nothing of the sort and inevitably the result of Nazi aggression was that the British people were forced to fight on the battlefield.
Today, I believe, we have reached the same level of impasse with the European Union – Hitler’s successors in that it is a Germany-dominated power bloc that seeks to play a major part in world domination.
The words of the President of the EU Commission Donald Tusk have finally ended any pretence that his organisation is seeking to negotiate.
He said and these are his exact words: “By the way, I have been wondering what the special place in hell looks like for those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan of how to carry it safely.”
Earlier in the same speech, he mourned that the stance of the Prime Minister Theresa May and the Labour Party was pro-Brexit and not in favour of Remain.
His words should shut the door on any lingering doubt that the EU respects democracy in any of its member nations.
And they can very easily be taken not only as an attack on the prime movers for Brexit in the referendum campaign but the 17.4 million who voted to leave the European Union.
Tusk further stated there was no further room for negotiations on the UK’s withdrawal agreement and was unwilling to consider even a time limit on the controversial Irish backstop, which remains one of the key reasons MPs in Britain have voted so emphatically against it.
Given a firmly closed door, allied to not even thinly disguised contempt for the clear majority of the British people, there should now be one solution.
As in the lead up to war, we should now withdraw from talks and leave without a deal.
Any other action is either merely prolonging the agony or showing that our Government is willing to back down in the face of disgraceful provocation.
There comes a time when controllers show their hand.
They hide behind mealy mouthed statements for years before finally – perhaps through sheer anger – they reveal exactly what they are about.
The European Union is a project that vows to carry on regardless of the wishes of the nation states.
Instead of offering a wishy-washy response, one foot in, one foot out, as advocated by our politicians and economically-motivated experts over the last couple of years, the real choice is as stark as it was on the ballot paper on June 23, 2016.
Remain or Leave, there were only two options. And Leave must mean to seek our own way in the world and have nothing more to do with an admittedly small group of bureaucrats who seek to take away our choices.
Love him or loathe him - and there’s plenty of the latter – we are coming closer and closer to realising that the best advice given to Britain during this period of impasse and confusion came from US President Donald Trump.
During his controversial visit to England last year, he told May not to go chasing a deal with the European Union.
I don’t for one moment expect Britain to do the right thing even though Tusk’s words have laid bare our worst nightmares.
We will continue to cling to the coat tails of our captors and speak of our respect for the very people who clearly have zero respect for us.
But let’s get this one point clear. We will now be continuing negotiations we so correctly walked away from eight decades ago.
Ps. For the information of Donald Tusk, there is no place called 'hell' - that was the invention of religious controllers who have successfully kept people in their place of fear.
