The headline is "Here is how Nigel Farage can avoid being the Brexit Icarus and see us fly out of the EU to freedom".

The key word is "avoid". People at The Daily Telegraph have public school educations so will know their Classics.

I like how Farage has rebranded a no-deal Brexit as a "clean break Brexit". That's a clever piece of double-speak there.

True, but the tweet from The Daily Torygraph suggests the opposite: Nigel Farage is the Brexit Icarus! :lol:

Lovely tweet from Leave.Uk today, an image of Merkel with the caption "We didn't win two world wars to be pushed around by a Kraut".

Yeah, the UK could take an active leadership role in the EU, to prevent it from becoming German-dominated, but that's too complicated if your brain is the size of a golf ball.

DUP have just released this statement:

"
The comments from the German chancellor to the prime minister that Northern Ireland must remain in the EU customs union forever now reveal the real objective of Dublin and the European Union.

For the United Kingdom to be asked to leave a part of its sovereign territory in a foreign organisation of which the UK would no longer be a part and over which we would have no say whatsoever is beyond crazy. No UK government could ever concede such a surrender.

The EU is not interested in a negotiated outcome at this time. Their position is the UK can only leave with a deal if it agrees a binding piece of international law permanently tying either the whole country or a part of it to the EU’s legal order over which it has no control.

The true purpose of the “backstop” is now in the open for all to see. Those who eagerly supported the backstop as the best of both worlds can now see the error of that assessment. It was neither temporary nor an insurance policy.

It appears that Martin Selmayr’s remarks about Northern Ireland being the price of Brexit is still the EU negotiating stance.

The prime minister’s proposals have flushed out Dublin’s real intentions to trap Northern Ireland in the EU customs union forever, where Dublin rather than the United Kingdom’s elected representatives would be in the driving seat.

We will not accept any such ultimatum or outcome. "

Tin foil hat stuff as usual from them.
