Remain Convert Duncan Said “UKIP Have a Point” Last Year

Guido’s Tory MP referendum spreadsheet is fully updated as Alan Duncan comes out for Remain, writing: “This is no time to withdraw from, and hence weaken, such an important multilateral structure as the EU”. Which is odd because just last year Duncan, a self-proclaimed lifelong Eurosceptic, said UKIP “do have a point about the way in which we’re governed from Brussels and we cannot ignore that”. Duncan claimed he shared UKIP’s “anger” over the EU, “would not rule out” voting to Leave and claimed he would only back Remain “If renegotiation really changes to a significant extent the scope Brussels has to tell us what to do then I think staying in would be fine”. He even met with Vote Leave at their HQ, where he modestly offered to lead the campaign…

Today he writes a gushing piece about Dave and Europe in the Telegraph titled “Why this lifelong Eurosceptic is now voting to stay in”. A turnaround of almost Mak-ian proportions…

Quote of the Day

Lewis Goodall opines

“Remainer readers may dislike Mr Farage – they may dislike his style, his rhetoric, his approach – but he cannot be faulted for his appreciation of strategy. If his opponents don’t up their game – and fast – he will beat them, just as he did before.”
