Tyrie: Government Job Would be “Greatest Honour”

TYRIE

As expected Andrew Tyrie came out for Remain today with a speech at the Centre for Policy Studies. Equally unsurprisingly, Tyrie told the room he was open to a government job in the future:

“I’ve always said it would be the greatest honour to serve in any government.”

Asked if Nadine Dorries was right that he’d been offered a “sniff of Osborne’s dirty socks”, he replied: “David Cameron’s never offered me anything. I’m not aware that he is going to me anything”. Yet…

The long-term Europhile said he was “disappointed by the EU negotiations, I felt we could have asked for more”. Tyrie has condemned both the Leave and Remain campaigns for misleading figures. What was it that made him reserve stronger criticism for Leave today?

Peak Project Fear: Brexit Will Cause Destruction of Western Civilisation

tusk

Forget World War 3. Forget pensions. Donald Tusk has trumped the lot with this piece of fear-mongering to end all fear-mongering:

“As a historian I fear that Brexit could be the beginning of the destruction of not only the EU but also of western political civilization in its entirety.”

Has he been drinking with Juncker?

UPDATE: Priti Patel says:

“This is extraordinary language from the EU president, and serves only to reveal his own desperation. The only thing that is destroying civilizations is the Euro – which has ruined economies and led to youth unemployment soaring to nearly 50% in southern Europe.”

READ: Turkey Cables in Full

These are the leaked diplomatic cables referenced by the Sunday Times which show British diplomats discussing plans to allow visa-free access to the UK for over a million Turks. The key sections are highlighted, for example this bombshell paragraph which argues Britain should “assess again the possibility of visa travel”.

Remember, Cameron publicly said “we won’t be offering visa-free access to Turks” and that Turkey is not an issue in the referendum…

LEAKED CABLES: 1.8 Million Migrants Would Be “A Drop in the Ocean” Compared to Turkey

turks

The Sunday Times has a great scoop: leaked cables reveal UK diplomats have discussed visa liberalisation for Turks coming to Britain, despite David Cameron’s pledge that “we won’t be offering visa-free access to Turks”. And there’s more…

Guido has been passed the cache of diplomatic cables. The telegram below is marked “Official – sensitive” and was sent by British diplomats in Kosovo to the Foreign Office. It reveals the European Commission plotted to “slipstream” visa liberalisation for Kosovo “behind Turkey”, because “1.8 million Kosovars” are “a drop in that larger ocean” by comparison. A stunning admission of the huge scale of potential new immigration – and collusion to play down the impact…

kosovo

The cable also admits the obvious, that “some will… abuse the system”. Privately British diplomats are talking about 1.8 million Kosovars as a “drop in the ocean” compared to potential Turkish immigration. Yet they are planning visa-free access for Turks – and Dave wants you to believe this isn’t an issue in the referendum…

OMG! Cameron Meets Buzzfeed: “You’ve F**ked Every F**king Thing Up”

And she was a Remainer. WTF?

BLUE ON BLUE: IDS Condemns Ros Altmann

IDS has condemned his former junior DWP minister Ros Atlmann for her tweet this morning saying voters should not defy Remain MPs. He tells Guido:

“This is a very strange statement. The EU referendum is about the British people having a say over our future, yet a Government minister now seems to be suggesting that they should just obey their MPs – that voters have no right to their own opinions.

Quote of the Day

Sky’s Faisal Islam on the mood in Parliament at the moment:

“It’s a totally febrile atmosphere here. It’s kind of like Game of Thrones meets House of Cards – and if you chuck in the Labour Party – Laurel and Hardy too.”
