Have the Lib Dems made a strategic blunder in their extreme positioning on Brexit? | DouglasCarswell

Lib Dem MEPs have written to Jean-Claude Juncker urging him not to do a deal with Boris Johnson

We can all imagine why these MEPs might want to prevent the two sides reaching an agreement: for a start they would lose their jobs, chauffeur-driven cars in Brussels and generous MEP expense accounts almost overnight. Were the UK and EU to agree an amicable separation, the Lib Dems would lose much of their raison d’être. There won’t be much point in a party that defines itself as being in favour of Brussels after we’ve left.

DouglasCarswell Yes thank goodness DouglasCarswell Expatriate Telegraph owners are so scared of the new EU tax regs coming in to force in January 2020 as it will make tax evasion and avoidance more difficult. DouglasCarswell Only time will tell... I am sick of the amount of sheer speculation that we have been subjected to by the media since the Referendum... Please, just report the news... Be patient and wait for it to happen; don't try and effect it!

DouglasCarswell Not really they are all just traitors working for a foreign power. DouglasCarswell Yes , Big time DouglasCarswell YES. I am outraged my local MP has defected to the LibDems. I would certainly not have voted for them at the last General election and I totally oppose their current stance.

DouglasCarswell This party (can't call them Liberal or Democrat because they are neither) have done every single voter a favour because everyone now knows now they are an extremist party ... People can't get misled further now can they? 🤔 DouglasCarswell YES ! DouglasCarswell YES DouglasCarswell Thankfully yes they have. joswinson is the most extreme politician so far, albeit she is utterly out of her depth. Thanks to the unlib-fib-undems and labour we should soon be leaving Europe whoopee 😀

DouglasCarswell Not really, they are choosing a side. After 3 years trying to find middle ground they are acknowledging it as a binary decision.

Tom Watson EXPOSED: Labour Deputy’s pro-Brexit speech revealed – 'Lib Dems are deniers'Labour deputy leader Tom Watson says that Jeremy Corbyn could stop the attempt to oust him from the party. Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Today programme he says 'Jeremy can stop it if he wants to. If he let the NEC know he doesn't agree with it.'

DouglasCarswell What, by telling everyone they would ignore the largest voting turnout in generations?!?!? 😳 DouglasCarswell Just a blunder, ignore strategic! DouglasCarswell Yep! They are finished DouglasCarswell No DouglasCarswell I suspect not. DouglasCarswell It will show in a Election when the LibDem will win many seats from Labour

DouglasCarswell They instantly alienated the largest voting majority the nation has ever known whilst simultaneously horrifying all true democrats on both sides of the Brexit debate. The Lib Dems naked power lust will be their downfall Once Brexit is delivered they will return to obscurity DouglasCarswell They made a strategic blunder keeping their name...

DouglasCarswell No. DouglasCarswell When you say 'extreme', you mean something like crashing out with no deal leaving the UK in social and economic chaos? Or 'extreme' as in remaining in the EU with the stability, benefits and order that we've had for the last few decades?🙄
