...from Martin Pike (retired Commander of the Royal Navy and a supporter of Veterans for Britain) on Brexit Central: Starmer must account for why he is coordinating with foreign powers opposed to Government policy; it is not just Starmer: there a number of MPs, ex MPs, ex PMs MEPs, Lords and others that should look at themselves and think: would I have been executed as a traitor in other times? The answer of course is YES!
"In the meantime, Sir Keir Starmer and his ilk should consider carefully whether their actions are indeed justified. They should consider what mandate they have to discuss Brexit issues with foreign negotiators and whether they believe in democracy or not. To oppose the Government of the day within the UK is what the opposition is about and is beyond reproach. To coordinate and collude with the foreign powers opposed to Government policy, to pass inside information which potentially damages the UK’s interests and to publicise such actions as somehow honourable is entirely something else."Nemo unquam sapiens proditori credendum putavit.
