Lord Heseltine Suggests Brexit Vote Allows Germany to Win World War Two

THE TELEGRAPH: Lord Heseltine has suggested that voting for Brexit is the same as handing victory to Germany, 70 years after the Nazis were defeated in World War II.

The former deputy Prime Minister said the UK's decision to leave the EU meant Germany had been "handed the opportunity" to become the dominant player in Europe.

He said that America would also now turn towards Germany and away from Britain.

Speaking to the House magazine, he said: “We’ve now abandoned the opportunity to influence Europe, the council of ministers will meet and we won’t be there.

"Our ability to speak for the Commonwealth within Europe has come to an end. The Americans will shift their focus of interest to Germany. » | Laura Hughes. Political Correspondent | Friday, March 24, 2017
