UK civil servants are trying to stop Home Secretary Priti Patel from doing the job she was elected to do, notes Allison Pearson, a journalist. Think about this observation for a moment. If true, and we've no reason to disbelieve it, public servants are trying to block democracy.

Remember Philip Hammond and May’s government of fake-Brexit fanatics tried to erode the UK’s Offshore Patrol Vessel capability through underfunding — at just the moment we needed it most.

"This idea that the EU must have rights over another country’s resources even to contemplate free trade is utterly preposterous.”

Zealots for EU Defence in the UK Civil Service point to the diminutive scale of its budgets. They fail to mention this merely funds the political systems by which the EU harnesses member state decision-making …and budgets.

Does EU Defence fan and top Whitehall official Angus Lapsley a. NOT UNDERSTAND the sovereignty-killing aspects of EU Defence? Or b. Is he just NOT TALKING ABOUT them?

I used to be sickened by the outrageous demands made by the EU. No longer. At last we have a govt that has the courage to rebut them. Our negotiators must stay strong. Not give an inch. Every sane person knows the EU needs the UK more than the UK needs the EU.

The EU Commission is still pushing the UK to agree attachment to EU-run defence structures. The UK has a dangerous lack of political opposition to this move and Whitehall civil servants are even talking it up.

Something doesn’t make sense: UK ministers behind the Huawei decision would never have prioritised Chinese interests over UK intelligence relationships before taking office. They’re now influenced by civil servants happy to burn ties with our real partners ahead of an EU ‘deal’.

In the UK, Huawei also counts MHP Communications and Finsbury, founded by the Remain campaigner Roland Rudd, the brother of Amber Rudd, the former home secretary.

Macron wants the UK to be a voiceless adjunct to a more centralised military EU. The UK media don't report it this way because they don't understand the work of our own Civil Service to put us in EU schemes.

More from nervous-sounding Angus Lapsley. A pitch for controlling, centralising EU defence schemes. It ends with a patent falsehood about mutual defence. Remember, Lapsley advised ministers joining EU military schemes and is now the TOP policy official at the Ministry of Defence.

The PM was clear about ‘full legal autonomy’ in defence but this official is ALREADY talking about “legal agreements”! It’s Angus Lapsley again, somehow MOD’s most powerful policy official. The ex-Blair aide + May’s ministers put the UK into loads of post-2016 EU defence schemes.

Dangerous talk from Angus Lapsley again overstating EU military capabilities and implying UK adherence. Sovereignty is not negotiable. Accept this Lapsley. If not resign or be fired.

No, the EU is saying that without the (defence and) security component there is no special deal. See Barnier slide below (our red labelling for defence) and Belfast speech.
