Laura Perrins: The concise plain man’s dictionary of lefty Brexit twaddle


(Here is a short introduction to the marvellous, mystical language of the Left in the aftermath of the High Court decision. You will need the following notes to understand anything they say on Brexit.)


Remainiac Wrecker: We respect the democratic will of the people and, therefore, we will not oppose Brexit.

Translation: We will oppose Brexit. We will do everything in our power to block Brexit including, but not limited to, launching legal actions as well as scrutinising and adding amendments to any legislation that triggers Article 50. We will make up phrases like hard and soft Brexit, even though we know everyone accepted that leaving the EU meant leaving the single market.


Remainiac Wrecker: We believe in Parliamentary sovereignty.

Translation: We do not believe that Parliament should be sovereign when it comes to European law. We seek to maintain the current position where British law is subservient to EU law in matters of EU competence.


Remainiac Wrecker: We believe in a democracy including a free press.

Translation: We do not believe in a free press, only a press that agrees with our worldview. We especially hate the Daily Mail because so many nutters actually buy it and agree with it. If only we could generate some sort of scandal to finish them off.

Remainiac Wrecker: We believe in freedom of expression.

Translation: We believe in freedom of expression but not for the right wing press, especially (as explained above) for the Daily Mail. Our idea of freedom of expression would be for the Prime Minister to censure the Daily Mail like they do in tin pot dictatorships and, even better, shut their whole wretched operation down.


Remainiac Wrecker: We need to have a civilised debate.

Translation: We want the Brexiteers to shut up and stop representing the views of the majority. On the other hand, we the Remainiacs should be free to call anyone who disagrees with us ‘racist little Englanders’ who deserve to have sick children.
