The New European provides an inspiring read



That front page persuaded me to buy a copy of The New European newspaper this week, for the first time. It’s almost Private Eye-like. Some of the small print at the bottom is hilarious. Godmother, the film, it states is:

  • Featuring “Nigel Farage as the horse’s arse”
  • Filmed on location in “La La Land”
  • Based on a half-baked idea by David Cameron
  • Directed by Unseen Forces

The current edition of the paper is a very good read, including:

  • Michael Heseltine is given their “plinth” accolade (John Bercow got the award last month)
  • Alastair Campbell writes about the “coming calamity” of Brexit and the ability of the people to avert it
  • Owen Smith MP analyses the Hammond budget
  • Michael White provides wise words on Brexit and Trump
  • An interesting “Expertise” pull out, with experts opining about a range of pithy issues

The New European is on sale now.

    Excellent article by Michael Heseltine in today’s “Sunday Times” too.

    Lord Heseltine was on Any Questions on BBC radio 4. Although he was sacked by the tory chief whip from his advisory roles he has written to the PM saying that she did not need to sack him. He gave reasons, just as he did when announcing his decision to stand for the tory leadership. He now feels himself free, which implies either that the noble whip withdrew the whip or that the former DPM resigned the whip.

    Question: Is this a serious attempt at defending the Coalition years - or an attempt to prevent the Federal Board member's special status being challenged?...
