At what point do Brexiters admit their attempts to be positive about the future sound really, really desperate?
Last week a Telegraph opinion piece claimed Brexit would be good for Britain because it would ‘cut marriage breadkdown‘.
Today in the Telegraph, its opinion columnist Ambrose Evans-Pritchard reassures his readers that Brexit will be fine… if the fascist candidate becomes President of France!
If Marine Le Pen wins France’s presidential elections in May, all talk of punishing Britain for the outrage of Brexit will become irrelevant.
French diplomacy will pirouette overnight under a National Front (FN) leader. The Élysée Palace will seek an Entente Cordiale with the British, offering a bilateral alliance on new foundations.
Does the prospect of a certified fascist being elected not give Telegraph columnists some pause for thought?
Or should everything now be seen merely through the lens of whether it helps Brexit in the short term?
The desperation on the right shows no bounds
