THE BBC’S LATEST DOCUMENTARY, BREXIT: BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, PROVIDES A RARE INSIGHT INTO THE TRULY PATHETIC STATE OF THE EUROPEAN UNION AND ITS NEGOTIATIONS WITH THERESA MAY. BUT ONE EAGLE-EYED VIEWER SPOTTED A REVELATION THAT SHOULD CONCERN EVERY ONE OF US.
IN THE documentary, that includes never-before-seen footage shot over the course of the farcical Brexit negotiations between the EU and Great Britain, Chief Brexit negotiator Guy Verhofstadt can be heard implying that Theresa May paid-off Labour MPs and even BREXITEERS to try to get her shoddy Brexit proposal through Parliament.
The comments were made inside the European Parliament to a large group of EU bureaucrats who didn’t bat an eyelid at his statement, as if perhaps it was already common knowledge within their circle.
Speaking about Theresa May’s plan to push-through her dodgy deal (a hugely unpopular deal that binds the U.K to the EU in all but name), Guy, the former Prime Minister of Belgium said: “We have seen in the meetings with her chief of staff, from day one, he said: ‘No, no, no, we’re not going to change our strategy. We’re going to deliver in the second vote because we’re going to buy some Labour votes, we’re going to buy some hard brexiteers’. He outlined, I think more than a month ago in detail what the strategy was to build up a majority.”
Watching the documentary, one viewer, Karen Webb-James, was stunned, telling Politicalite:
“We already feel completely betrayed by our PM, Theresa May. She’s attempted to thwart Brexit from day one, but in these videos it’s quite clear that she’s prepared to buy MP’s votes by giving them money for their constituencies. We’re talking above 50 million in some cases. If these MPs accept this payout, and some have already, then we will be denied a real Brexit! It will be Brexit in name only.”
The revelation throws further suspicion over the reasons behind sudden u-turns made by certain pro-Brexit cabinet members who now support Theresa May’s embarrassing Brexit deal.
Politicalite will be keeping a close eye on this matter and will update as the story develops.
