This article was originally published on The Commentator. Prime Minister Theresa May’s decision to appoint Sir Tim Barrow as Britain’s Ambassador to the EU appears to have achieved the rare distinction of making both ‘Leavers’ and ‘Remainers’ happy. It’s a move which has been welcomed so widely because, more than anything, it relates to the government’s… Read more

John Redwood’s latest blog takes on muddled thinking over Brexit. Muddled thinking seems to rule in those who condemn it. To me muddled thinking is the idea that we need to negotiate returning control over our money, borders and laws. There are some in the government machine and in business who seem to think the… Read more

This article was originally published on the Huffington Post. Since the EU Referendum result, a great rewriting of history has occurred.

This article was first published on CapX. EU leaders continue to insist on the inseparability of the much-vaunted “four freedoms” of the Single Market – free trade in goods, services, and capital, as well as free movement of people. German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble, for instance, told Britain: “There is only the whole menu or none.”… Read more

John Redwood’s latest article discusses how the EU uses its citizens as political pawns. Giving the cold shoulder to the Prime Minister was juvenile. Refusing to reassure all EU citizens living in each other’s countries that they can stay after Brexit was morally repulsive. I assume even the EU would not stoop so low as… Read more

This article was first published on ConservativeHome. Over the past few weeks we have seen a new proposal in the European Parliament to treat Brexit voters with contempt. It has been gathering support from those who wish to block or belittle the EU Referendum result at every opportunity. One notable supporter of this idea is… Read more
