This could be the funniest piece of

Brexit news so far this year

A "simple human error" by BBC producers made it appear as if Theresa May was travelling to Brussels in a fleet of second World War planes to reopen negotiations with the EU.

During Wednesday's News at Six, footage of planes flying over Biggin Hill airbase was shown as newsreader Sophie Raworth recapped the British prime minister's visit.
The section was meant to be accompanied by footage of Mrs May.

Instead, clips showing planes over the air base were shown,  suggesting Mrs May was travelling to Brussels in a fleet of RAF bombers.

Remind the Germans: "We Won!"

    "Wars are not won by evacuations," Churchill said.
     That may be true, but it is hard not to see
     Dunkirk as a pivotal moment in the war.

So the Tory MPs are back into name-calling as they are lacking in arguments for a clear debate! What a complete mess the Tory party is in.

After saying that Enders was "a German paratrooper in his youth," Francois said the CEO's video displayed the "Teutonic arrogance" of the European Union.

"If he thinks because he runs a big company [that] he can bully British MPs on how to vote, he's going to be sorely mistaken," Francois told the BBC. "My father, Reginald Francois, was a D-Day veteran. He never submitted to bullying by any German and neither will his son."

Living in an alternate universe. As I have said before, the British MPs lack leadership and basic knowledge what the project EEC was or EU is all about. Many signs of a return to the global pause in development human kind from a century ago. Poland too is fighting a battle most nations won 50 years ago ...

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.
