I came across one of Jason Hunter’s youtube videos. It did challenge my ideas on a no deal Brexit. I was initially keen to delve deeper into what he had to say but this particular talk on youtube showed clearly what we a dealing with: A psychopathic, smug, hypocritical EUphile.
Firstly, Jason does point out factually the pitiful inadequacy of the Rt Hon Theresa May’s cabinet and the civil service regarding Brexit. On this I have to agree with him.
The facts or allusions to them cannot be denied. There are hundreds of treaties which must be recreated. Jason mentions 750.
Jason Hunter makes no pretense at being impartial, neither do I. He wants the referendum result revoked due to fraud by leave campaigners. He even throws in Russian collusion via social media bots.
What nonsense. Any criticism of the west is classed as Russian collusion. Are the Russians persecuting Lyn Thyer or David Noakes for making GcMaf or mandating vaccines?
Back to this hypocrite, Jason Hunter. Let us use his own words to expose his motivations and psychopathy or not:
Let us contrast two statements Jason makes in this video. Concern for people losing their jobs, incomes.
“jobs, is jobs, is jobs, its not, its households. It’s people. Real people lives, real people incomes, real peoples mortgage payments, that’s what we’re talking about”
Versus, what he did for a large steel company
“For several years, I was head of strategic planning for a very large steel company and we’d pick another country’s industry, say an automotive and we want to sell them flat steel…
once we’ve destroyed that competitor, we have that market all to ourselves for the next 5, 10, 15 years…”
He was not concerned about “people’s” jobs or incomes when his steel employer destroyed their competitor however due to Brexit he is concerned for destroyed jobs and companies.
He accepts capital’s exploitative predation and psychopathy when they(he) is the predator but not when he or the UK are victims of that same predation.
“The EU are pulling their hair out, we’ve got back channels over there, we talk to them regularly”
“We’ve talked with some of the leading drug manufacturers here in the UK, we talked with GlaxoSmithKline, talked to AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson…the big four if you like and they consult with the government”
– GlaxoSmithKline (make Cervarix HPV vaccine)
– AstraZeneca UK (make Fluenz Tetra flu vaccine)
– Johnson & Johnson (researching HIV/Ebola vaccines)
He has back-channels to the EU that openly disclose confidential activity between UK government ministers and the EU. It clearly show a strange level of intimacy to my mind. From what I gather, he has negotiated “trade deals” for companies NOT nation-states, so why does he have this degree of intimate access to Brussels and pharma?
The real deceit by this man, as he positions it as a rational choice, is to “pause” Brexit by revoking Article 50! I say it is a deceit because he must know once Brexit is stopped by revoking the divorce document (article 50), the political will for Brexit evaporates. Neither party will ever initiate the Brexit process ever again!. Real Brexiteers are in the minority in parlimanent.
Jason Hunter is still worth listening to for a dose of Brexit reality. However are his views consistent with someone truly concerned for liberty, “democracy”, or rejection of capital’s priests/oligarchs and their psychopathy?
