The master of fraction (mixing fact with fiction) – aka David Cameron – has been honing his skills again today where the subject of the Treaty of Touquet is concerned.
Letting it be known that Brexit would mean migrant camps would have to be set up in south eastern England as the French would terminate the aforementioned treaty as the UK would no longer be a member of the EU, is not strictly true.
Justifying his comment, Cameron is quoted as saying: There are any number of opposition politicians in France who would love to tear up the excellent agreement we have with France to make sure that we have our borders on their side of the Channel – I don’t think we should give those politicians any excuse to do that……..If we can get this deal in Europe, if we can get this renegotiation fixed and we can stay in a reformed Europe, you know what you get. You know the borders stay in Calais. (see video)
In admitting that the Touquet Treaty is bi-lateral in nature – and therefore nothing to do with the EU, for Cameron to maintain: If we can get this deal in Europe, if we can get this renegotiation fixed and we can stay in a reformed Europe, you know what you get. You know the borders stay in Calais – he is misleading the electorate of the United Kingdom.
Cameron should have our pity as he just can’t stop himself from lying!
