Two-Faced Chuka: EU Porkies Live on Air

Chuka got very upset with Boris on LBC for quoting him as saying 50% of new regulations come from Brussels. This was Chuka’s categorical denial that he’d ever used that statistic:

“No, you’ve got that wrong, I was not quoted as saying that.”

Oh really? 

Guido has unearthed this speech delivered by Chuka where he claims exactly that:

“On regulation, the Tory-led Government has over promised and under delivered – for example, its  ‘one in one out’ rule does not apply to EU legislation which accounts for around half of all new regulation and its semi-detached attitude towards European engagement makes it harder not easier to reduce the regulatory burden on business.”

As Boris says, man up and admit it Chuka!

Quote of the Day

Paul Dacre on the Daily Mail’s future support for Brexit…

“…what moves me most are the countless messages from readers worried about whether the Mail will continue its support for EU withdrawal. My answer to them — and others — is unequivocal. Support for Brexit is in the DNA of both the Daily Mail and, more pertinently, its readers. Any move to reverse this would be editorial and commercial suicide.”
