    Donald Tusk today

    European Council President Donald Tusk has said there is a "special place in hell" for "those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan of how to carry it safely".

    Really? These are the words he uses? True or not true, that is a disgraceful thing to say.

    I think he made somewhat of an understatement. I hope Nigel Farage ends up stoking the fires of hell, whilst stood waist deep in "manure."

    A special place in hell

    Is this sort of language really worthy of someone in his position? I find it sad that someone in his position should use such language just because others have a different political outlook. And to lambast those that promoted Brexit when they aren't in a position to steer negotiations, is a little silly.
    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

    don't worry Donald, I've done a deal, you get to find out exactly what hell looks like.

    the thing is, he's used to either getting his way, or having people told to "rethink their mistake"

    Fact is, in a couple of months every other state in the EU is going to see how little he can do about people who see through him, and so now this sort of insult is all he has left.

    Ah, I've just put up the same thread on the Political site. Mods can perhaps merge them. I think it's disgraceful to say that, whether he's right or wrong or even if Brexit is right or wrong, they are not the kind of comments that someone in his position should be making.

    Ha, BBC saying that a camera picked up the words, 'you are going to get in trouble for that'.

    Sry Cas, looked around for a thread, and couldn't see it. Should have looked a bit wider.

    I see Lankou attacking Farage on your thread. Farage may well have a plan for the border but he isn't part of May's inner cabal. So really Tusk should be lambasting Ollie Robbins and Theresa May, not Brexiters. And let's face it, it's their border as well. What are their plans for it when we leave?

    It was a dumb statement and he shouldn't have said it.

    Don't get me wrong, I share the feelings of general anger against Brexiteer politicians who sold one of the most glorious pups in modern history, but I tend to find using provocative language gets you nowhere.

    So yes . . a dumb statement . . . but one made in a world of dumb statements brought about by a dumb process.

    Only verbally, there are reasons Farage needs 24/7/365 protection, and it isn't because he is worried about people shouting abuse at him.
