Peter Hitchens talks Brexit, Trump and Theresa May….
Banana carvers of the world, unite! Let us carve a better future! And then eat it!
did anybody vote for the WTO? Who elected them? If UK was not sovereign how could it have voted out?
he is a closet socialist…lol
search SBR Loshak and the Bag
if only he was as intelligent as his brother
He dosn't believe in refferendums so he dosn't believe in democrasy!!
Go to 27:49 first. The reality is stark and seedy. Also, IMO, it has the distinction of being true.
He nails UKIP. Yup UKIP are / were, aside from their anti-EU stance, a bunch of principle-less populists, most of whom are pretty amoral and remarkably disingenuous.
I can read Peter Hitchens, but find it very difficult to listen to him, because of his whistling sibilance.
so poland and hungry can control imigration but usa and uk cant thats the most ridiculous answer ever they could control imigration they dont want to as they want it destroyed
I always think this bloke is all over the place
Extraordinary prescience / foresight… I only hope that he is wrong that it will take a parliamentary majority with the will to leave plus up to ten years to leave… God help us.
This man is a fool.
What a complete bumbling idiot P H actually is. Nothing about this fool is endearing. He decries leave the EU but doesn't fecking vote to leave. Christ on a bike someone shoot this fucktard, please!!!!
Idiocy, he didn't vote because he is an elitist and thinks he is above the needs of the regular people. He says wanted out of the EU, but no matter what he claims it would be unconstitutional. And he KNOWS the political class would vote to stay in because they're compromised. He is an overrated p.o.s. Commie sympathizing douche.
Soft Brexit is a good trade deal, good for both sides.Hard Brexit is leaving with no deal being better than a bad deal.
At about 5 mins he says that UKIP did not have any sort of policies….well they were good enough for the tories to copy almost word for word before the election. Lots of what he says is right though. Previously he has said that he wants the UK making its own laws and the ability for us to control our borders…well isnt that EXACTLY what most people voted for… BREXIT.
Is he sure he didn't vote remain ? …He winges like Clegg.
It looks as though Peter Hitchens will be wrong as usual.
i would have voted brexit had i been british, but new zealanders did not get the option. So he voted against it but his reasons are nuanced and interesting so i find them worthy of respect
Pete responds when he's challenged he walked though this and looked bored
Agree with much he says, but he offers very little in the way of positive solutions to pretty much ANY of the problems faced by his countrymen. Brexit, no matter the short term costs and ramifications, is clearly an escape by the skin of out teeth from the E.U, soon to be absolute nightmare. It was exactly the right thing to do, as our sovereignty was too hard won by our forebears be handed away so cheaply to those who respect it so little.
l like Peter Hichens views on a broad range of affairs, but he is a lightweight compared to his brother. They don't call him "The Hitch" for nothing.
What Hitchens means by "it has already happened" is, they multiply like mice.
Who cares what Peter Hitchens thinks.
15:49 Thank you, Peter.
Don't agree with him on much, but he's spot on about the reasons for the referendum and why it should never have taken place as it did.
What's his field of expertise?
Peter Hitchens of one of the great political polemicists of our times; one of the few to survive the egregious disinfectant of political correctness.
What did the EEC/EU ever do for us?
Not much, apart from: providing 57% of our trade; structural funding to areas hit by industrial decline; clean beaches and rivers; cleaner air; lead free petrol; restrictions on landfill dumping; a recycling culture; cheaper mobile charges; cheaper air travel; improved consumer protection and food labelling; a ban on growth hormones and other harmful food additives; better product safety; single market competition bringing quality improvements and better industrial performance; break up of monopolies; Europe-wide patent and copyright protection; no paperwork or customs for exports throughout the single market; price transparency and removal of commission on currency exchanges across the eurozone; freedom to travel, live and work across Europe; funded opportunities for young people to undertake study or work placements abroad; access to European health services; labour protection and enhanced social welfare; smoke-free workplaces; equal pay legislation; holiday entitlement; the right not to work more than a 48-hour week without overtime; strongest wildlife protection in the world; improved animal welfare in food production; EU-funded research and industrial collaboration; EU representation in international forums; bloc EEA negotiation at the WTO; EU diplomatic efforts to uphold the nuclear non-proliferation treaty; European arrest warrant; cross border policing to combat human trafficking, arms and drug smuggling; counter terrorism intelligence; European civil and military co-operation in post-conflict zones in Europe and Africa; support for democracy and human rights across Europe and beyond; investment across Europe contributing to better living standards and educational, social and cultural capital.
All that for about 40 p per day per UK citizen.
(The above is from a letter to The Guardian from Simon Sweeney,Lecturer in international political economy, University of York)
this prick of a interviewer is trying his best to label Peter a racist…people like this leftard interviewer is the reason why Islam will one day dominate the UK!.
I like peter he is well spoken but he's always such a downer although admittedly the situation in Europe isn't ideal and he always tries to dodge a question by giving a safe answer like him refusing to state the best prime minster the UK has ever had. It makes him look like that he doesn't stand for anything.
He's wrong about referendums. I hope we adopt a Swiss model for governance.
This man is strangely unreliable, doesn't seem to believe in anything. Now we learn he didn't even vote.
Easily the largest thing that he gets wrong, is how to hold a mug of tea.
What amused me in the campaign was Cameron with his Cotswold buddy Clarkson and his buddy May having a talk on staying in the EU with May stating "I like Europe". Well so do nearly all the British people. But the many loath the EU. Europe is a collection of nations. The EU is an undemocratic machine made to rule over the collection of European nations with Germany as the most dominant member of the EU undemocratic machine.The people voted OUT. But I too doubt that Britain will get fully out because those who are arranging the leaving of the EU very definitely want to remain within the EU. So we may appear to be out when we're actually still in.
I think peter was the voice of marvin
I think poor Peter is getting a bit nihilistic in his old age. He'll be ordering a bottle of port and a pistol off his butler soon. 😞
Can't help but feel the interviewer was woefully inept at getting the best out of his opportunity to interview PH. Seemed very amateurish.
Why does nobody understand that referenda are unconstitutional and always a terrible idea. Just because on this occasion we got what we wanted does not make the idea of a referendum good.
Take your head out of your arse you pretentious dick.
13:50 "we're an extremely tolerant country"14:20 "I'm not sure we're that tolerant"
Hitchens is so intellectually wound up he is incapable of taking action on anything.
