The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss Brexit negotiation comments made by European Council president Donald Tusk, where the Brussels globalist said, “I’ve been wondering what that special place in hell looks like, for those who promoted Brexit, without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely.”

Predictably, Tusks’ comments sparked outrage and fury among anti-EU campaigners.

Donald Tusk was instructed to listen to the Queen’s call for political toleration last night, after he caused outrage by claiming there is a “special place in hell” for those he claims advocated Brexit without a clear plan.

The advice was given to the European Council president by Tory peer Baron Forsyth, the former Secretary of State for Scotland.

He was speaking during a debate on BBC Question Time.

Mr Tusk caused widespread anger with his provocative comments on Wednesday.

Addressing the key EU leader Baron Forsyth commented: “I think Donald would have been well advised to have attended a meeting of the Women’s Institute at Sandringham where he would have got very good advice from the monarch on how to behave.

“I don’t think it helps, with a complex issue like this, if people start using language of that kind.

“I think one of the problems with the Brexit debate is that it has become so divisive.”

The Queen delivered what was widely interpreted as a call for tolerance during Brexit discussions when she addressed the Sandringham Women’s Institute last month.

She commented: “Of course every generation faces fresh challenges and opportunities.

“As we look for new answers in the modern age, I for one prefer the tried and tested recipes, like speaking well of each other and respecting different points of view; coming together to seek out the common ground; and never losing sight of the bigger picture.”

Baron Forsyth was responding to comments Mr Tusk made in Brussels on Wednesday, after talks with the Irish Prime Minister.

He claimed there is a “special place in hell” for “those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan of how to carry it out safely”.

The European Council President went on to repeat the remark on his official Twitter account.

Theresa May is currently attempting to win concessions from Brussels on the controversial customs union ‘backstop’.

She either wants the UK to be able to withdraw unilaterally, or for it to be time-limited, but Brussels is refusing to budge.

The Prime Minister also condemned Mr Tusk’s remarks stating: “I’ve raised with President Tusk the language that he used yesterday, which was not helpful and caused widespread dismay in the United Kingdom.

“The point I made to him is that we should be working to ensure that we can deliver a close relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union in the future, and that’s what he should be focusing on.”

No, just one of the CIA black-sites run by the greasy Poles.

Alexander Mercouris is right: “An outrageous comment” by an outrageous person. Tusk is the least qualified person to lead the EU. He is undiplomatic and out of touch with reality.

Tusk’s comment has been misunderstood. What he meant was exactly what he said: the special place in hell was for the Brexiteers who claimed that leaving the EU was easy when they didn’t have a clue whether it would be easy or not. They pretended to have a plan, and the electorate believed them and voted to leave.

In fact, they had no plan. Leaving the EU is turning out to be extremely difficult, but the Brexiteers will not take any responsibility for their mistake. It’s that abrogation of responsibility that Tusk finds so offensive, and I do too.

How disingenuous. It was never up to the Brexiteers, who voted for escape from the Fourth Reich (AKA the EU) to forge a plan, it was up to the Government of the UK.
I hope you are not proposing that they use ‘extra-parliamentary opposition’ to force their democratic will through the parliament.
That is a serious sedition and an offense. You could well expect a visit from the ‘men in black’.

It was certainly up to them if they misled voters into thinking they had done their homework and had concluded on the basis of FACTS that getting out was easy. Many people tried to tell them but they would not listen. Calling the facts Project Fear was much more fun.

Theresa May will not listen either. She is just as much to blame if not more.

Is there a wee crack left by the Jewish News of New York (AKA The NYT) for me to squeeze through and, in keeping with the new standards for journalism set by the Paper of Record, call Tusk a Greasy Pole?
