    Default Tory Brexiteer starting to grapple with reality

    Obviously he's doing so in the context of whining about the nasty EU bullies, but it looks like the start of a realisation that the UK doesn't hold all the cards because of BMW imports.

    Tory Brexiteer TRASHES EU and insists they MUST make more of an effort to get Brexit deal

    TORY MP John Whittingdale slammed the Brussels bloc and claimed its definition of “significant progress” is when Britain has given it everything it wants.

    Mr Whittingdale said it is “absolutely essential” that the key Brexit issues are resolved in order to move to an agreement.

    The European Union are refusing to progress on to trade talks until “significant progress” is made on key Brexit issues - including the financial settlement, the Irish border and citizens’ rights.

    Appearing on BBC 5Live, he said: “We’ve got less than a year to get that and we haven’t even started talking about the other two things.”

    But Mr Whittingdale savaged the bloc and said Britain has tried its best to meet the concerns of the European Union.

    He said: “I think the Prime Minister’s speech in Florence did represent, you know, a very generous offer. It addressed all of the concerns that the EU had raised and tried to meet them.

    “The problem, or at least the perception that I had talking to Bernier and the EU, is that once the British Government has tried to be helpful, has shifted its position, has made an offer.

    “Simply, the position of the Commission and Barnier is exactly the same as when we started and they are demanding everything that they started off with.

    “So to some extent, their definition of “substantial progress” is when we have conceded everything they want.”

    The MP for Maldon demanded that Brussels make an effort to meet Britain “somewhere in the middle” and not demand too much.

    He said: “Certain things are just not acceptable. Allowing, for instance, the European Court of Justice to still play a role after we’ve left the EU.

    “It would mean that EU citizens living in the UK have a sort of right of appeal to another court which UK citizens would not have, which clearly would be wrong.”

    Following the end of the sixth round of talks on Friday, Brexit Secretary David Davis said both sides must "work to find solutions".

    If you were running the UK in 1939 we would be run by Germany now.

    If you were running the UK in 1939, we would have been allied with Germany.

    If the government had gone through with the changes in electoral borders, this person would have been Priti Patel's competition. She was Witham, he is Maldon and the two were to become one!
