Quote of the day 4th December 2017

"A close ally should never be so insulting.

How dare he? When a foreign politician question's Britain's commitment to fight Islamic extremism and stand "shoulder to shoulder" against ISIS, our hakles rise. When a close ally suggests we were complacent after "a series of attacks" we were entitled to be angry. And when he says it despite hone-grown terrorist attacks ion his own back yard, we should fume.

Yes, Michel Barnier, the Frenchman who is the European Union's chief negotiator, deserves to be slapped down."

(Sunday Times editorial yesterday responding to Barnier's attack on britain's commitment to European defence and security.)
