How quickly Project Fear has morphed into Project It’s Too Hard. Every time I turn on my radio, there is some numpty on in the form of the Guardian’s Polly Toynbee telling us all that may be we should just not to bother with Brexit, because ‘It’s Too Hard’.
On Wednesday, the ONS confirmed what we all knew already – there has been no major impact on the economy from the Brexit vote so far.
“The assessment found there is ‘no sign’ of a collapse in consumer confidence after the historic EU referendum result. Fears of a house price slump, job losses and soaring inflation have also yet to appear.”
And do the doom-mongers-in-chief George Osborne and David Cameron ever have to answer for their predictions (aka lies to you and me) they made in the run up to the referendum? No, never, if you listen to the BBC.
So these lies are now buried under claim after claim of just how difficult it will be to extricate ourselves from the Brussels regime. This is a poor attempt to mask the fact that the Remainiacs never want Brexit to happen and are hoping against hope that this war of attrition will delay the triggering of Article 50 and some unforeseen event might terminate Brexit.
You never heard of this kind of whinging from Ireland or India when they were breaking from British rule. ‘Oh, but it is just so hard, what will we do with our legal system if we leave,’ was not something ever heard from the mouth of Éamon de Valera. They just got on with it.
The founding fathers in America did not gather in Philadelphia and say: ‘but a Constitution is so challenging – we could never agree on such a document’. And these guys were building and planning an entirely new country. The British were embedded far deeper into Irish society and its legal system than Europe is to ours. But they made in work.
Peter Lilley MP on ConservativeHome set out in detail what needs to be done to make Brexit happen. It might be challenging – but in an empowering way, like drawing up the Declaration of Independence was empowering, or putting a man on the moon was empowering.
The truth is, these Remainiacs – especially those at the Guardian – loathe Britain and do not want a self-governing nation free from Brussels. If we had that, goodness knows what the people might vote for – anything could happen, like a resurgence in grammar schools. We must resist at all costs democratic accountability, say the Remainiacs. The people cannot be trusted!
We must prevent Remainiac momentum and Brexit resistance. The sooner Brexit happens, the better.
