So who is James Chapman? You have to ask because the BBC doesn’t tell us in its bulletins as it turns his anti-May, anti-Brexit spin into ‘news’. All day we have been informed of his opinion that May’s ‘redline’ on the ECJ is untenable and making David Davis’ job impossible…..
Theresa May has made David Davis’s job more difficult by setting “red lines” for him in Brexit talks, his ex-chief of staff has told the BBC.
James Chapman said the Brexit secretary had been “hamstrung” by the prime minister’s stance on the European Court of Justice (ECJ), among other things.
He said Mrs May would not get a Brexit deal through Parliament unless she showed more “flexibility”.
BBC news didn’t think it necessary to inform us of his provenance but the web article slips in a brief mention of his past life…
A former Daily Mail journalist, Mr Chapman was George Osborne’s director of communications before becoming Mr Davis’s chief of staff at the new department for exiting the EU.
James Chapman was Osborne’s PR spinner and what the BBC fails to mention, the ‘man who ran Project Fear’ for Remain…
From the Independent:
Exclusive: Bizarre twist sees former Osborne aide take top job with Brexit Secretary David Davis
A bizarre twist indeed….which is probably why he has been booted out of the job now….and why we get this Remain operation to further undermine Brexit.

Let’s think….what is going on? ‘Explosive stuff from James Chappers’!!!!??? Why would the BBC be peddling that ‘explosive stuff’ all day as headline news? The BBC organised the pro-Remain Times to interview a very pro-Remain Chapman who is feeding the Media Remain misinformation, the BBC blasts his views out on the news as if it is gospel and we have him on The Week In Westminster on the same day. Chapman has all the usual suspects cheerleading him on Twitter….he does his own cheerleading for Remoaner Tories to be in cabinet…

This is quite obviously an orchestrated attack on Brexit and May in an attempt to pressure her to change course on Brexit and essentially stay in the EU.
It is all pure opinion from Chapman, Remoaner opinion at that….the ECJ is ony a problem for those who want the ECJ to still have oversight over UK affairs…ie Remoaners. Not as if the EU doesn’t have its own redlines….not least its absolutist redline of freedom of movement…indeed all the four conditions it imposes imperially upon those who want to trade with it inside the Single Market. Freedom of movement is a political and ideological policy that is intended to break the nation states and undermine national loyalties…it is ‘ethnic cleansing’ of a kind…it is completely unnecessary economically….and it is the biggest single factor that sets a large portion of the people of Europe against the EU.
The BBC has joined forces with the Remain camp in a glaringly obvious piece of news manipulation in an effort to change government policy and pressurise politicians. The BBC once again seriously interfering in the democratic process and acting in a highly politicised manner.
Perhaps May should replace the leadership of the BBC with an independent commission until it gets its ship in order….clearly unfit for purpose right now.
