Toothless Tusk's "hell" outburst just shows his contempt for British voters and democracy...

QUENTIN LETTS Toothless Donald Tusk’s ‘hell’ outburst proves his contempt for Brits voting to Leave his federal superstate

Brussels feel understandably insecure about the future of the federal EU project after Britain voted in favour of Brexit

SOME people are in a tizzy after Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, said a special corner of hell should be reserved for buccaneering Brexiteers.

Tusk’s remark had diplomats practically needing the Heimlich manoeuvre to dislodge Ferrero Rocher chocolates stuck in their gullets. Quick, the ambassador has had a seizure!


Donald Tusk has recalled that in his youth he was 'a typical hooligan'


Sneering Donald Tusk said there was a 'special place in hell' for those who promoted Brexit without planning for it

Had Herr President Tusk, at this most delicate of moments, really told the likes of Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage to go to hell? Yes, pretty much.

I know we are supposed to take mortal offence. I know we are meant to fan our faces and ask Nurse to bring us something to soothe our nerves after that nasty man uttered such a frightful insult.

But I couldn’t help laughing at toothless Tusk’s tirade.

At last, a European Union bigshot has blurted out his contempt for British voters.

That’s surely preferable to all those smarmy smiles and fake phrases about “respect for each other’s values” and how we hope to work with “our European friends and partners”. Real friends don’t nick £39billion off you.

There are two things worth knowing about Donald Tusk. The first is that in his youth he was a bit of a brawler.

'A TYPICAL HOOLIGAN'

The second is that five years ago he resigned as Polish prime minister to take up his current cushy number in Brussels.

Born in 1957, Tusk grew up in the city of Gdansk, when Poland was a grimy colony of the USSR. His family had German roots and his dad, a carpenter, died when Donald was 14. It can’t have made for an easy youth.

Gdansk gave rise to the Solidarity trade union *movement which protested against Iron Curtain suppression.

Tusk has recalled that in his youth he was “a typical hooligan” who would *saunter along the streets in a gang, “cruising for a bruising”.

Theresa May slapped down the EU's Donald Tusk in an icy showdown after his 'hell' comments sparked a huge row

In some ways, who can blame him? They were edgy days and young men will do what young men have done since time immemorial: Defend themselves if under attack. Communism was (and remains — just ask the people of Venezuela) a stinking and ruinous creed.

Decent Poles bravely reasserted their national sovereignty after too many decades of being governed by ideological bureaucrats who couldn’t give a fig about the electorate.

Er, remind you of anything, Mister Eurocrat?

That colourful background in the Gdansk of the 1970s and 1980s made it all the odder when, in 2014, Tusk quit the premiership of his country to become an EU grand fromage.

He had been Poland’s PM for seven years and the country had done well.

Yet he chucked that in so that he could succeed shrivelling nonentity Herman Van Rompuy as president of the European Council.

The job is less important than it sounds. Its occupant basically acts as a collector of opinions from EU heads of government and acts as their representative at international shindigs.

A BIT OF A BRAWLER

That it was held by such a blinky-eyed vole as Van Rompuy was a measure of its significance. Yet Tusk chucked in the prime ministership of his country for it!

Brussels may offer wonderful pensions, top-trough brasseries and as many rides in the back of a BMW 7 Series as you could wish, but had Tusk gone mad?

The answer to that question is “not *necessarily”. He saw that under EU rules, national governments are now increasingly junior to the federal superpower.

The real power in Brussels lies not with Tusk, nor even with boozy European *Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, but with the backroom officials such as Martin Selmayr and Sabine Weyand. Both of them, you may notice, are *German. This shift in powers has happened slowly over decades and electorates have taken a while to notice.

But now the voters are copping on and are at last making their displeasure plain.

The British Leave vote was the first (but probably by no means the last) great expression of that anger.

All of which helps to explain why *unelected EU officials have been so spittingly angry with the British public for voting Leave. We have busted the dam.

That is why Tusk snarled at us on Wednesday. He and his sort feel badly threatened by Brexit.

They feel understandably insecure about the future of the federal EU project.


Tusk expressed his disbelief that Theresa May was insisting on pressing ahead with Brexit after his 'hell' outburst

The Tusks of this world regard the peoples of Europe as an inconvenience.

They were appalled with David Cameron for letting the referendum happen and they are now appalled with our MPs for not stopping Brexit.

Shortly before his “hell” remark on Wednesday, Tusk expressed his disbelief that Theresa May was insisting on pressing ahead with Brexit, and his disappointment that Remainers at Westminster had not succeeded in blocking our departure from the EU.

At that point I must confess I shouted something rude at the television in my office. “It’s because we had a f***ing referendum and we voted to leave!” I cried.

Shouting at a TV set: Uh-oh, I may have been driven as mad by Brexit as dotty Tory Europhile Anna Soubry. Tusk’s outburst was similar. Everyone’s losing it!

The teenage Donald Tusk — the one who used to tour the streets of Gdansk with his gang — would, I think, have understood. I am not recommending violence but politically this is certainly a time we could all do with clenching our knuckles and looking out for our interests.

Cruising for a bruising, a young lad in Gdansk might once have said.

RICHARD LITTLEJOHN: March against The Donald (that's Tusk, not Trump) and show the tinpot dictator exactly what the British people think of him

By Richard Littlejohn for the Daily Mail
8 February 2019

Looking forward to the march against The Donald? Me, too! It’s time we showed this tinpot dictator exactly what the British people think of him.

Frankly, we’ve had our fill of this preening, middle-aged sexist pig throwing his weight around. We’re sick of his arrogant tweets and his contempt for democracy.

Who the hell does this self-styled ‘Mr President’ think he is? So join me, Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson at the Stop Tusk rally. I’ve already ordered the inflatable Baby Donald to be flown over the Houses of Parliament.

While I’m at it, maybe I’ll commission giant hot air balloons of a naked Jean-Claude Drunker, Michel Barnier and Angela Merkel.

Then we can invite the Provisional Wing of the Countryside Alliance to bring along their shotguns and blast these grotesque, puffed-up politicians out of the sky, like grouse on the Glorious Twelfth.

I’m sure Farage would lend me one of his matched Purdeys. If not, I’d settle for a second-hand sawn-off, left over from a South London blagging. What a joy it would be giving both barrels to effigies of Donald Tusk and the rest of the European ‘elite’.

Sorry, what’s that? You thought when I referred to ‘The Donald’, I was talking about President Trump?

I can see why you might have leapt to that conclusion. The usual suspects are already salivating at the prospect of their next demo against Trump, when he arrives in Britain for the Nato summit in December.

That’s if a rumoured state visit this summer doesn’t go ahead. His first official trip, last July, was an excuse for a petulant display of protests, which cost taxpayers £14 million to police.

Thousands of demonstrators, many in fancy dress, marched through London in a carnival atmosphere, wearing novelty headgear and waving placards plastered with obscene slogans. (No one has yet explained to me why a red ‘Make America Great Again’ baseball cap is an affront to decency, yet a hat resembling giant female genitalia is perfectly acceptable.)


In Trafalgar Square, they gathered under a ‘Baby Trump’ blimp (pictured), given the thumbs-up by London’s two-bob chancer of a mayor Sadiq Khan

In Trafalgar Square, they gathered under a ‘Baby Trump’ blimp, given the thumbs-up by London’s two-bob chancer of a mayor Sadiq Khan, and cheered a succession of Left-wing rabble-rousers heaping vitriol on the leader of our most important ally.

Now they’re limbering up to do it all over again.

The Lib Dems (11 MPs) and the Green Party (one MP) are promising to be ‘front and centre’.

No doubt O.J. (Oh, Jeremy) Corbyn will be there, too, blaming America for the humanitarian crisis in bankrupt, corrupt, socialist Venezuela. Try stopping him.

And when this orgy of condemnation and self-congratulation is over, and everyone has repaired to the pub until Glastonbury comes around again, will any of them stop to think why they’re protesting — and what on earth it is they hope to achieve?

Trump may be pretty unsavoury for the delicate palates of snowflake types and the dwindling band of prigs who still buy the Guardian.
But what harm has he ever done them? Or Britain, for that matter.

OK, so he offends their own set of ‘principles’ and sense of self-righteousness. But given that these people define themselves by who they hate, if Trump didn’t exist they’d have to invent him.

He’s not exactly my cup of meat, either. But his greatest virtue is his ability to send all the right people into a deranged frenzy.

What Trump does on the home front is entirely a matter for American voters, who elected him once already and will have to decide whether to award him a second term.

So what if he puts ‘America First’? That’s his job. If only we had a Prime Minister who put Britain first.

Unlike the EU’s unelected tyrants, Trump has only ever shown friendship towards Britain.


Littlejohn: 'It’s a pity Mother Theresa has learned nothing from Trump’s success in playing hardball with our "partners"'

When we voted Leave, he was first out of the blocks, offering a ‘big, beautiful’ free trade deal.

Rather than bite his hand off, all the resentful Remain camp could do was scaremonger about chlorinated American chicken, which was going to wipe out half the population. (Never mind the poisonous Romanian horsemeat the EU sent us.)

U.S. military might has ensured the peace in Europe since World War II, which is why it is perfectly appropriate that the President is coming to Britain in December to mark the 70th anniversary of the Nato alliance.

Yes, Trump managed to upset European leaders by insisting that they keep their side of the bargain and commit two per cent of GDP to defence.

But he was right to do so. And his uncompromising negotiating stance paid dividends, securing an extra $100 billion for Nato from Europe.

It’s a pity Mother Theresa has learned nothing from Trump’s success in playing hardball with our ‘partners’. Instead, she lets them trample all over her.

I was only half-joking when I said we should have a march against The Other Donald.

As Tusk’s latest outburst illustrates only too well, he treats our female Prime Minister — and the British people — with disdain, patronising her with snide comments and snarky Tweets.

Had Trump done the same, we’d never hear the last of it.

President Trump, I repeat, only wants friendship and free trade. Tusk and the rest of the self-perpetuating conga-line of unelected EU ‘presidents’ aim to humiliate, subjugate and punish us economically, to turn us into a permanent prisoner of their rotten, anti-democratic empire.

The 17.4 million who voted Leave — Chesterton’s ‘secret people’ — are not the type to take to the streets. Nor, it should be said, are most of the decent folk who backed Remain.

We leave the demos to the noisy show-offs determined to draw attention to themselves, whatever the convenient cause.

But if we must have another tiresome march against The Donald, let’s give Trump a miss, for once, and protest against our real enemy . . .

Donald Tusk.

He has a point though - what hell IS there for the people who planned/wanted and got Brexit but aren't/didn't carry it out properly.

In the end, those who said yes having done SFA to see it through but left it up to incompetence and lack of spine so now no matter what, IMO, the British are f-ed regardless of what happens in the end.

Britain will not be 'okay', I think, but rather they'll be like the new guy at the senior's home, wondering why they're there, where their wife is and why the F are they wearing diapers?

Well the bit where he bangs on about lying, entitled, politicians just about sums up the Remain camp perfectly. The Remainers were far bigger liars during the referendum campaign. No wonder they lost

LOL Reeeeach Blackie... reeeeeach.

You clearly miss the point of it all but that's not surprising. You are pretty thick sometimes.

I'll tell you what's being thick: using the tired cliche that the Leave camp lied to voters in the referendum when by far the biggest whoppers were told by the Remainers.

Both sides likely lied just which side lied more to get what they wanted?



IMO this guy is moreso pointing out the doozies the Leave camp used to get people scared so they'd vote to leave, despite their shit being proven not true.

Now, did the Remain camp lie? As I said, likely but the Leave camp really amped up their scar-rendum and the moment they won, a lot of the big name players f-ed off leaving a mess behind.

That's how May got into the position she's in. You don't think those jerks deserve their place in Hell for doing that?

The Remainers lied far more.

They told us, for example, that there would be a massive economic downturn as soon as we vote Leave; that a Leave vote would result in an immediate emergency Budget; and that a vote to Leave would result in WWIII. Of course, none of these came to pass.

Now I'm fairly sure that many people only voted Remain because they believed such scaremongering.

I don't recall the Leavers telling such big porkies.

You're honour, I know I'm a thief, but that guy there is a murderer, so you should let me go.

And the authorities display all their ire towards the thief but ignore the murderer's crimes.

Here's a fact I quite like: Rowan Atkinson's older brother, Rodney, ran for the leadership of Ukip in 2000.

I think you missed his point... >.>

I'm not denying the Remainers lied. I'm saying BOTH sides lied, and BOTH sides told doozies.

The issue is the Leavers act like they DIDN'T tell lies and expect to be believed. And that, IMO, is what is the whole point of the comment that started this.

What part of that is it so hard for you to understand?

So you're saying the Remainers act as though they DID tell lies and don't expect anyone to believe them?
