The Memory Hole, Room 101 and the cognitive dissonance of well know media commentators have all played out in the Brexit debate. Casting back to 1997 in this blog, The Referendum Party and UKIP’s party political broadcasts from that Election.
But Starting off with Yesterday’s men and a Panorama special from 1997 which examines Then Mrs Thatchers Savaging back in 1990 by the dead sheep in the person of Sir Geoffrey Howe, Of course, famous Bildeberger Dennis Healy coined that phrase.
I have added the video transcript and timings of both election broadcasts for ease of quoting and referring to quote timing for Brexit, discourse.

Mrs May Seems to be giving Barnier more than a Flash of the Ankle, She should be giving him the Full Thatcher Knock Back, Non-Non Non!
Would someone please show this to Theresa May No is not supposed to mean Yes and those things Barnier are doing to her are Bad things and not things the public think are good!
