Merkel says Brexit would bring “instability” to Europe. A bit like her migrant crisis

Merkel says Brexit would bring “instability” to Europe. A bit like her migrant crisis, by Douglas Murray. This is a bit like before the French Revolution, watching a wealthy, foolish, and enfeebled elite come out with ever-more ridiculous statements that reveal how out of touch with reality they are. The royal court of political correctness is absurd.

David Cameron … posthumously [tried to] recruit the British dead of Two World Wars to  the cause of the EU, claiming that the fallen had laid down their lives solely in order that Britain should not to be sovereign.

But then the PM’s predecessor, Gordon Brown, stepped up … [and claimed] that people who want Britain to govern herself are un-British while those who want Britain to be ruled from abroad are patriots.

But Merkel takes the cake:

German Chancellor describes the prospect of Britain exiting the EU … risks creating ‘extra instability’ in Europe at a time ‘when it is already facing economic turmoil and the migration crisis.’

[I]f Frau Merkel had not last year unilaterally thrown open the doors of Europe to the entire third world then the migration crisis would not be a crisis.  Was it a ‘necessary’ or an ‘unnecessary’ risk that the German Chancellor took in 2015?  In my view last year she sailed Europe directly into an iceberg.  How strange that she should now attack those passengers who are trying to secure themselves a life raft.
