EU’s Blind Eye in Catalonia

When tyrants in authoritarian states arrest protesting political opponents they invariably claim to be upholding law and order. EU officials and even Boris have used the “rule of law” argument in Spain to justify the Spanish government’s heavy handed actions in Catalonia. Nigel is right to call out the eurocrats in Brussels on this…

UPDATE: Juncker has reiterated that Catalonia “is an internal matter for Spain”. Meanwhile Manfred Weber, head of the European People’s Party, the largest political group in the European Parliament, tells MEPs he has urged Theresa May to “please sack Johnson…” What was that about internal matters?

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
