EU bosses are acting like Soviet Communists by trying to punish Britain for Brexit, Jeremy Hunt blasts

THE EU is acting like the Soviet Union by trapping Britain in a “prison” and refusing to let us leave, Jeremy Hunt blasted today.

The Foreign Secretary warned Brussels bosses are undermining the “European dream” and could end up driving other countries out with their bossy behaviour.

Mr Hunt channelled Thatcher and Churchill in his crowd-pleasing party conference speech which is likely to be seen as the opening shot in a future leadership bid.

The former Health Secretary voted Remain in the 2016 referendum but has since become a convert to the Brexit cause.

Speaking at the party gathering in Birmingham this evening, he hit out at the EU for treating Britain badly in a bid to punish us for voting to leave.

Mr Hunt said: “What happened to the confidence and ideals of the European dream? The EU was set up to protect freedom. It was the Soviet Union that stopped people leaving.

“The lesson from history is clear: if you turn the EU club into a prison, the desire to get out won’t diminish, it will grow – and we won’t be the only prisoner that will want to escape.

“If you reject the hand of friendship offered by our Prime Minister you turn your back on the partnership that has given Europe more security, more freedom and more opportunities than ever in history.

“And a setback for the EU will become a wholly avoidable tragedy for Europe.”

Quoting Margaret Thatcher, he added: “We understand the EU wants to protect itself. But if the only way to deal with the UK leaving is to try to force its  break up, as someone much more distinguished than me once said, the answer is ‘No No No.’”

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics. If our political elite were more than just yes men weighed down by the chains of political correctness, they would see that the people of Britain have had enough. 
Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes? 
Continuiosly using the NHS as a stick to beat the opposition or a classic party political paper dragon! (Paper Dragon): a politician or political party whocampaign to fox the proble…

Has the Supreme Court handed Boris Johnson a Brexit escape route?

The Supreme Court’s judgment is the latest constitutional perversion after the Benn act. But ironically it may assist the Government in achieving its objective of Britain leaving the EU by 31 October, without having to seek an extension to the Article 50 process.
In paragraph 34, the Supreme Court states that its ‘proper function’ under our constitution is to give effect to the separation of powers (which justifies court intervention in relation to prorogation). Then, in what appears to be an innocuous sentence in paragraph 55, it says that it is to be “remember[ed] always that the actual task of governing is for the executive and not for Parliament or the courts.”
Yet the Benn Act manifestly contradicts this principle. It dictates how the Government must conduct negotiations with a foreign body, the EU, to the extent of obliging the Prime Minister to write specifically worded letters and accept whatever extension it offers when certain conditions are not met. In the situation when t…
