In response to Andrew Cadman: Remainers, eyes closed at the edge of the cliff,
I worked very hard at grassroots level for both Ukip and Vote Leave. I never expected to win, especially when I saw the avalanche of propaganda and lies from the entire establishment, who even enlisted the ‘help’ of that awful POTUS Obama. But I never doubted that I must press on to honour our democracy and the fact that two generations of my family, now dead, had risked their lives fighting for our freedoms.
On the night we passed the magic numbers, at gone 3am, and standing in the counting hall of my local town, I was ecstatic, along with all the Vote Leave and Ukip men and women.
If we do not have a genuine departure, the one we were promised by Cameron on the government’s own persuasion leaflet, the mood will be sour, very sour, ugly even, and there will be endless trouble ahead. We refuse to be cheated by an arrogant elite. Freedom is not negotiable so the struggle will continue.
The people voted to leave, fully aware of what that meant. Not to see it through now would be an act of national cowardice. We would forever be the country which voted to leave but couldn’t quite summon the courage to see it through. We would be used as an example to frighten others, because if even Great Britain cannot stand up to Brussels then how could smaller nations do so?
The world is watching Britain. Will we set an example of courage, or shrink and be humiliated?
Of course we won’t get a proper Brexit. Short of a complete revolution in society. The cultural Marxist/elite do not want to give up their easy lives and view us little people with utter contempt.
It is also worth remembering that whatever scenario is eventually played out, we face an even bigger cultural cliff edge which is likely to last much longer and show Theresa May’s ‘immigration bribe’ (ie support me or our already open borders become even more open) up for the empty gesture it obviously is. She is due to sign the UN Migration Pact (on our behalf): this document which will profoundly affect our ability to restrict immigration as it will suddenly become a human right rather than an aspiration to be worked for.
There has been very little MSM coverage of this issue – I wonder why? Yet again the elite have reduced the concerns of the majority of the population to racist rantings rather than legitimate concerns about our culture and capacity to cope with even more people.
I would urge everyone to sign the petition against it – but don’t expect them to take much notice.
What turns this Brexit farce into a tragedy is the woeful lack of leadership on both sides. I recall Charles Moore, author of Thatcher’s biography, being asked what Maggie would do if she were in charge now. He said he couldn’t speculate as to what she might do i.r.o. Brexit, but what she did do many times when there was a split in the party was to pick a side, and then do everything she could to persuade others to her side: to create a majority view.
May has approached the whole Brexit question like a girly swot, trying to appease voices on all sides but in practice driving them further apart than ever. As for leadership on the leave side – I could weep.
To me that’s the problem with this article. It’s one thing to say, correctly, ‘we face a crisis of how we are governed that is much, much bigger than Brexit itself, and that irrespective of how Brexit is enacted, conservatism can never triumph until the old ways of doing things are fundamentally reformed’. But I can’t see anyone out there capable of stepping up to do the reforming.
