TV historian David Starkey lambasts the establishment as treasonous for negotiating on behalf of the EU, and brands Remoaner ex-Tory Dominic Grieve ‘a lying, deceiving shit’.

‘Dominic Grieve was not elected in a personal capacity. He was elected as a Tory on a Tory manifesto which promised Brexit. That man did not dissent at the time. His claims to dignity, to acting honourably are totally false. He is a shit – a lying deceiving shit from start to finish. And an oiled shit – look at that awful, greasy hairdo. We really have to start calling things by their proper names.’

He also says the behaviour of some elite Remainers has been treasonous:

‘The old word is treason. We are engaged in a highly contentious negotiation with a strong, united and determined opponent. A large part of the political elite has deliberately gone and negotiated with them against their own country. It’s another aspect of the elite I find disgusting – most of the elite hate their own country and they regard the people with absolute contempt.’

A white gay man who dislikes and disrespects women, and calls a spade a spade? glad he’s on our side.

Yes, David Starkey. D.Grieve, O.Letwin and others stood on a Conservative manifesto to leave the EU cleanly. They did not demur at the time, were duly elected and enjoy their status, power and perks. But they did not in fact support their manifesto. In ‘low’ commercial terms they benefited from false advertising.
But this matter of leaving the EU was and is the paramount, the absolute political issue. As it was in 2017 when these liars stood for parliament.
So, I wonder, what was in their minds ? How did they stand?
On their left legs, with their faces to the wall, and with their fingers crossed behind their backs hidden by grimy copies of the manifesto.
Naughty, poisonous little children!
