The Financial Times is reporting David Cameron's government have agreed to start Turkish EU membership talks this month (June 24th or June 30th) and open. Cameron couldn't even keep hi s lies up until we have had our EU vote

'Turkey’s EU membership talks are set to be given a boost within a fortnight, after Britain abandoned its attempt to freeze the process of opening a new “negotiating chapter” with Ankara'

'formal opening of talks is expected on June 24 or 30, in line with the Turkey-EU deal'

Is this "paving the way from Ankara to Brussels"?

DC is actually starting to look grey, ill and haunted. I think that whatever deal was cooked up is unravelling before his very eyes....

Where is Dave ? And where is George ?

I think they have been told by the advisers to keep out of sight because everything now revolves around Labour voters and Dave and George put them off, understanndably. So it is now all down to Corbyn and the Labour team to get the Labour vote to support Remain.

Oh things are that bad

Deliberate press release I wonder? Or did someone cock up?

So it is now all down to Corbyn and the Labour team to get the Labour vote to support Remain. It's in the bag for Leave then. Although I notice Tom Watson today is saying EU migration rules must change. Bit late for that - Labour should've done that ten years ago.

Well yes, we've heard that Turkish had been made an official with language
