Hunt's EUSSR dogwhistle has really upset a lot of people. A lot of very important people. It was a spectacularly ill-chosen comment both in content and in timing. Once again, I refer to those priceless commodities, goodwill and trust. The UK needs those ESPECIALLY if no deal.
The thing is, it's offending precisely the few EU Member States that still had some residual goodwill, after all the others had been pissed off (concentration camp guards, etc). Thatcher is held in veneration in the Baltic States. These votes could have meant so much to the UK.
And Hunt's 'prisoner' analogy is so wide of the mark it's an own goal. Far from prompting other Member States to eye the exit, the Brexit catastrofuck (& EU's handling of it) has served only to demonstrate to potential waverers why we're so very much #BetterTogether.
