I listened to AQ today and was surprised to hear that you are medio Chapín.
I completely agree with your comments about Latin American politics viewed by Brits ( and America) as “football teams” and you pick which side to back …damn the consequences. Bring to mind the skirmishes leading to green go…gringo.
It is about time that Britain looked to improve relations with Latin America so ignored for centuries when repressive puppet dictatorships were the common outcome of American intervention. Our special relationship was thus preserved. Moral compasses indeed need to be reset, especially if Brexit leads to supposed tarrif free trade so mistakenly claimed has been denied Britain whilst in the eurozone…
Half my family remains in Guate too, although I expect they may have a different perspective on political allegiances. You will understand what I am saying.
I will look forward to reading more of your work.
Love your input on LNL!
Keep up the good work.

Dear Ian, I’m reading your excellent book on Brexit. I really appreciate your observations about the extent to which the Brexiteers fail to understand the EU and what makes it tick. This was blatant in May’s Lancaster House speech. one point of detail: EU rules on free movement are not just defined by case law, as you imply on page 61 of your book, but are enshrined in secondary legislation, namely Directive 2004/38 http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2004:158:0077:0123:en:PDF
This basically says you can stay in any EU country for three months. After that you need to be employed or self employed or a student or be financially self sufficient and covered by health insurance. It would be interesting to know if and how the UK applies these rules. They would appear to preclude the benefits and health tourism that the right wing media rage about.
