INSIDE Europe: 10 Years of Turmoil looks at the recent history which led up to Brexit and a spate of debacles that have dogged the EU. The documentary is the inside story of how Europhile leaders lost touch with events and attitudes and paid the price. What is Inside Europe: 10 Years of Turmoil about? The three part series charts a decade of turbulence faced by the European Union which faces an uncertain future. Episode one is about how ex-Prime Minister David Cameron promised a referendum, and his attempts to strike a new deal on issues such as immigration in Brussels in order to win it. Episode two tells how the Greek financial crisis threatened to spread and destroy not just the Euro, but the world economy. And how the medicine prescribed by the EU paved the way for populism - of both right and left. While the third episode chronicles how the sudden arrival of hundreds of thousands of migrants in the summer of 2015 put the European project in peril, as the member states disagreed … [Read more...] about What time is Inside Europe: 10 Years of Turmoil on and what’s the history behind David Cameron’s EU vote?
MEMO to David Cameron’s agent: If your man is going to have any more unscheduled chats with members of the Press, best not to do it when Dave is wearing his running gear. Not a great look for the chick-chick-chicken who bottled Brexit. David Cameron admits he regrets Brexit chaos sparked by his referendum - but still insists he was right to call vote Interrupting his morning jog, our former Prime Minister gave his longest comments yet on the 2016 EU referendum since he deserted his post the morning after the result came in. It was the usual forgettable Cameron waffle, hoping MPs “can come together to find an alternative partnership agreement” with the EU and blah blah blah. What will stick in the mind is the image of Cameron scuttling away after the small talk as fast as his little Old Etonian legs would take him. It reminded the country Cameron is the biggest coward ever to grace British politics. You can say what you like about Theresa May. That most of her … [Read more...] about David Cameron is a headless chicken who legged it after Brexit — which shows how lucky we are to have Theresa May as PM
Former Prime Minister David Cameron has said he regrets the "difficulties and problems" that have emerged since the Brexit referendum vote. He was asked questions on Brexit while on a jog today. The former Conservative leader was probed by the BBC about whether he regrets calling the 2016 referendum. Mr Cameron was approached as Theresa May faces a fight for survival, having seen her Brexit deal humiliatingly shot down in a vote on Tuesday night. MPs voted overwhelmingly against Mrs May’s deal, as she lost the Meaningful Vote in the biggest Government defeat in history, by 432 votes to 202. Mr Cameron leant his support to Mrs May, but insisted he was right to call the divisive referendum. He said: “I don’t regret calling the referendum. It was a promise I made two years before the 2015 General Election. “It was included in a manifesto, it was legislated for in Parliament. I think six out of seven Members of Parliament of all parties voted for that … [Read more...] about Cameron: I regret ‘difficulties’ since Brexit referendum vote
BORIS Johnson has admitted bottling it when he had the chance to be PM in 2016 – only to pull out of the race at the last minute. The Tory heavyweight today said that “in retrospect” he might have done things differently if he had his time again. He told LBC: “I certainly have engaged with a lot of heart searching about it ever since.” It came as Boris separately risked another backlash by saying he would compare women wearing the niqab to letterboxes all over again – and claiming he knew more about car making than the boss of Jaguar Land Rover. Boris quit the Tory leadership race on the morning of his campaign launch in June 2016 following the dramatic last minute decision by running partner Michael Gove to go for the job himself. At the time, Mr Johnson was seen as a clear favourite to enter the final two against Theresa May in the battle to succeed David Cameron. Challenged by a caller to LBC yesterday, he said it was “correct” to … [Read more...] about Boris Johnson admits ‘I bottled it’ over pulling out of PM race in 2016 after winning Brexit vote
