Asking investors to abandon the UK goes against the UK’s interests. No amount of debate can change that. Yet that is what Parliamentarian and Brexiteer John Redwood has done.
How can he be forgiven?
Brexit would allow for the UK to frighteningly reinstate capital punishment.
I would like to think John Redwood himself might be one of the first to be hanged.
Although it is true that our head of state has been revealed to have money invested offshore – it is quite another thing to actively encourage this sort of thing to happen.
The Conservative Party have tried to push the blame for the migrant crisis from migrants themselves onto the people smugglers.
Will the same logic apply to those intermediaries who are rewarded for eroding the UK’s financial interest?
It felt like more ‘Enemies of the People’.
The Telegraph’s front page:

The online content itself is biased but ok.
Here is the website:
And the actual piece:
Theresa May is facing a rebellion from at least 15 Conservative MPs who are threatening to block her plans for Brexit in Parliament.
I watched some of the proceedings yesterday — Dominic Grieve did a great job.
As far as Britain’s business interests are concerned these ‘mutineers’ are actually the only trustworthy Tories.
The Telegraph quote the pathetic Sir Bernard Jenkin whose contorted logic and uncharismatic speech made him look desperate.
John Redwood contributed in the same way.
Read this excellent Frances Coppola thread on Redwood and make up your own mind:
1/ Here is Redwood’s FT profile. Describes himself as “Chief Global Strategist for Charles Stanley”. Fact he is a senior Conservative MP and former Cabinet Minister is completely omitted. https://t.co/QptijFWDQW

The FT should be ashamed of themselves for giving Redwood a platform.
Sat next to Redwood during the debate was Oliver Letwin with a rather pained look on his face. He admitted in his new book Hearts and Minds that his 1988 book Drift to Union converted Bernard Jenkin into a Eurosceptic.
How must he have felt in the knowledge that this retard has taken the country hostage?
Jenkin also said it’s ok to leave the EU because most countries are outside the EU and are perfectly fine. Hardly the best defence of the Brexit cause.
Maybe he should spend a bit more time in Albania or Puerto Rico?
Last night Frances Coppola retweeted this:
Typical remoaning. Did we need Honda component parts at Agincourt or Crecy? https://t.co/d7prkH7OfE

Max Hastings’s Guilty Conscience
But former Telegraph Editor Max Hastings summed things up in August:
Hastings of course employed the bumbling oaf Boris Johnson at the Telegraph. He sent him to Brussels and even promoted him to assistant editor so, just like Letwin, this Tory Remainer ought to feel much remorse.
