I despair of the British legacy media. Rather than inform themselves about the EU renegotiation by reading sources who understand how the EU works and how David Cameron’s EU “renegotiation” is likely to play out, these self-important parasites read only one another and publish articles that add to the confusion that they create in the first place.
Occassionally, one of the flock will emit something half-way sensible—law of averages, I guess. Borrowing the collective brain-cell this weekend is CapX editor, Iain Martin, who regails us with the above, to which my response is: Yes, go on, and…?
In an effort to encourage the slow kid to arrive at an answer of his own accord, here are a few questions for Iain Martin and his ilk:
- Do you think that David Cameron will campaign for Britain to leave the EU under any circumstances?
- Do you think that David Cameron intends to win the EU referendum when he campaigns for the “remains”?
- Would a “four year migrant benefit ban” be sufficient to convince a majority of the British electorate to support continuing EU membership for Britain and win the referendum for David Cameron and the “remains”?
- Did David Cameron’s letter to European Council President, Donald Tusk, set out more proposals than just a “four year migrant benefit ban”?
- Do you think there could be more to the “renegotiation” ploy than just a “four year migrant benefit ban”? Didn’t it say as much in the letter that you and your colleagues dismissed as “trivial” only last week? Well, what do you think?
If British journalists had half a brain they’d be dangerous.
