This week we will leave our continued review of the Great Deception until next week. But last week I did a discussion on TWR with Dave Piper, Dave Thompson (SNP) , Jonathan Thame (Jubilee Centre) – should Christian leaders speak out about Brexit – and how should we do so? It was a fascinating discussion.
You can hear the discussion by clicking on this link – it is towards the end of the programme – One hour 34 minutes
There has been one major (non) Brexit development this week – and that is the announced closure of Honda’s Swindon plant in 2021 with the loss of 3,500 jobs. This was immediately seized upon by the Remainers as a result of Brexit. Honda stated that it was not to do with Brexit – and that it was the result of a change in the market caused by a move away from diesel to electric, the smallness of the EU market for them (they have only 1% – and they are closing their Turkish plant as well) and the necessity to focus on their main markets – Japan, China and the US. Despite this politicians, campaigners, the Guardian and BBC Scotland doubled down and continued to insist this really was about Brexit. Its a classic example of ignoring reality for the sake of making an ideological point. This article from Spiked was very helpful . https://www.spiked-online.com/2019/02/19/remainers-are-lying-about-honda/
If you want want more background as to why we are in this situation – then this series from the BBC is excellent and fascinating.
