“ The Tories have pushed through the legislation to establish Metropolitan Mayors, sometimes against the wishes of local populations.”

That’s just one of the factual errors in this rather garbled piece, in fact the legislation that created the role of elected mayors was the Local Government Act of 2000. Anyone who is not aware The Labour Party were in power in 2000 should not be writing about UK political affairs.

There are far too many similar follies to list individually, but I was intrigued by the suggestion of Mr. Putin’s role in all this:
“ The reactionary nationalists, particularly those that are part of, or financed by, the international organisation of Strasserite National Bolshevists, thought that Brexit would be the first stage of breaking apart the EU. That view was expressed openly by Trump, as well as by Putin. It has been actively promoted by those like Bannon that stand behind Trump, and provide the link, via people such as Farage, and assorted European right-wing nationalists and fascists with Putin.”

And Putin found time to do all this while rigging the 2016 US election for Trump did he? The man must have superhuman powers.

As for the strengthening of ties between Germany and France by the Treaty of Aachen, I think if you read reliable news sites (rather than Antifa propaganda, you will find the signing of that treaty by Merkel and Macron not only provoked outrage in their own nations, it andgered many other EU member states.
