IN response to Patrick Benham-Croswell, Johnson must be ready to fight in defence of the realm, Oaknash wrote:
They have had four bloody years to sort this out. To send the right messages, to order the right fishery protection vessels, to make a trade agreement with the US. And at each turn of the drama we have had to listen to arrogant elitist members of the political class like Ellwood and Patten trying to undermine what was probably the only truly democratic decision we have been allowed to make for decades.
For years these people have done very little other than self-serving publicity and picking up a fat pay cheque at our expense. I expect many of these self-same ‘Conservatives’ who opposed Brexit also supported over the years the denying of support to and the selling off of many of our more successful businesses to foreign buyers. And now, because the Tories under May were more interested in throwing stones at Trump rather than making a trade agreement, we are now unlikely ever to get one as favourable since it is quite possible that the corrupt Biden/Harris will get away with their electoral fraud and gain power in the US.
And now, with our economy in tatters after months of us having to pay people to drink beer in their back garden as part of this government’s actions to ‘save lives’, we might finally be leaving, and even now these arrogant clueless individuals do not have the self-awareness to get behind our country and try to help galvanise the population to be prepared to make the many sacrifices that will be necessary for a successful Brexit.
I voted for Brexit (and still support it as I think it is the only way to preserve our national identity) but I also said from day one that Brexit would never be easy. I think now that it is going to be even more difficult. However if it does lead to some sort of economic collapse and possible social ferment, this could well be the opportunity that is needed to drain our swamp and drain all the swamp creatures (including the woeful and craven Boris Johnson) away to languish in the sewer of history where they truly belong.
As for relying on Boris ‘learning to fight on matters of principle’:
crikey, did anyone just see that pig flying past?!
