Brian: “This is the UK in 2018: in order to have a discussion on the media we have to organise a secret meeting!”
This is such a poignant statement from this UKC episode. Brian refers to:
… WHERE AND WHEN Sunday, 27th May 2018 – 2-5pm (doors open 1.30pm)
Details of the venue will be communicated to ticket holders only closer to the time of the event. We will be in touch with everyone who has purchased a ticket in due course.
… and they have to state this because already their venue has been cancelled once and so the next venue is kept secret till nearer the time. Welcome to free England where the £3.74 billion taxpayer funded BBC still tells us how marvellous it is here in the land of free speech and expression.
Pre show chat box…
What’s the point of voting? The government always gets in … because the majority don’t use their vote.
What would happen if the silent 60% all spoiled their ballots?
Just a thought …
FYI the chat box comments can sometimes be random and out of synch with the live show commentary, but generally on topic and providing a sense of live show experience… ultimately, I recommend you watch the show posted below… thanks to those in the chat box who contribute to the show and post useful links, especially ‘workhouse’.
The UK Column website was apparently ‘attacked’ again 5 mins pre-show. I can vouch for this because my connection temporarily went down. I guess it was the Russians again. Or was it from space!?
Mike almost chokes as he tells us he agrees with words from Tony Bliar:
“We find ourselves in the worst of both worlds…”
Nick Clegg or Clugg as he is known to some, says: “Brexiteers have forfeited their right to be heard.” Clugg calls for a 12 month extension to the Brexit deadline. He would say that, wouldn’t he.
Mike points to the creation of a deliberate constitutional crises and reminds us of cabbage patch Cameron’s ‘Best Of Both Worlds’ speech:
The best of both worlds: the United Kingdom’s special status in a reformed European Union.
This document explains why the UK will be stronger, safer and better off by remaining as a member of a reformed EU.

From the chat box: American Intelligence Media:

That last one Mike ringed shows that he is at EECAD — the FCO’s Eastern European & Central Asia Directorate.

The Hofschroer case… some good news…
