How long will Helen and Winston cling to the pretence of what they have cobbled together as being a workable arrangement? Today we read that the European Parliament MEPs were asking Clark to explain the roles, saying they can’t understand it. Yeah well join the group.
And can someone give Helen a prize for Orwellian doublespeak as she keeps referring to the arrangement where we have a Foreign Minister claiming not to be part of the Government as an “innovation”. If that’s an innovation, then so is bird flu!
Let’s quote one European MEP:
“The position he stands for is diametrically against the position you’ve adopted for six years. Many people in Europe don’t understand that.”
Yep. Winston claims his biggest priority is repairing the relationship with the US. Helen says there is no problem to be repaired.
