Prince William ‘Backs Brexit’

Prince William “has given a clear signal of his support for Britain staying in Europe”, claims the Telegraph in their lead story this afternoon. Quite a scoop, if true. So, what did Wills actually say? Here is the Telegraph’s full quote:

“For centuries, Britain has been an outward looking nation. Hemmed in by sea, we have always sought to explore what is beyond the horizon.

That sense of mission and curiosity is something that I know continues to drive our economy, our cultural and educational exports and our Armed Forces and Diplomatic Service. And wherever we go, we have a long and proud tradition of seeking out allies and partners.

In an increasingly turbulent world, our ability to unite in common action with other nations is essential. It is the bedrock of our security and prosperity and is central to your work.

Right now, the big questions with which you wrestle – in the UN, NATO, the Middle East and elsewhere – are predicated on your commitment to working in partnership with others.”

Errr, he actually doesn’t mention the EU or the referendum at all…

In fact, William’s line that “we have always sought to explore what is beyond the horizon” could be interpreted as a Eurosceptic battle cry. After all, you can see the continent on the horizon…

What about Wills’ praise for Britain’s “sense of mission and curiosity”? And the line that: “wherever we go, we have a long and proud tradition of seeking out allies and partners”. European nations are already our allies and partners, so surely the Duke of Cambridge is saying he wants us to embrace our curiosity and seek new friends in the world? The Europhile spin on this is laughable, William’s speech could just as easily be spun as a call for Brexit…

European Parliament President Martin Schulz…

“I consider it to be very possible that the Brits will know exactly what they want at the start of negotiations, but that Europe still won’t be able to speak with a single voice…”
