God, I love the British people!

First, I implore you to listen to a few minutes of R4's 'Today' from this morning, talking to a group of leavers and remainers from the factory floor of a car components plant - Podcast, starts at 1:20 in to 1:26. God bless you, Sonia, Malcolm, Frankie, Peter and Tina - I'm so damn proud of you! 

This is the voice of Britain. 

To hear the whiny, sneering, elitist metropolitan continuity-remoaners who loathe both their nation and their fellow citizens, read the Twitter feed #r4today from 7.20 onwards; a litany of vile, pompous, superior and spiteful personal abuse which I hope those who gave us such a fantastic Vox Pop never read. "You daft arses!" I shouted at the screen "You're exactly the reason why 17.4m people voted as they did!".   

That's not the only reason I love the British people this morning. The day before yesterday, to counter the CA cheating allegations, I posted a quick Twitter meme - five minutes on photoshop using a partisan-selection from Wikipedia's pages. The figures at the top are accurate and from the Electoral Commission site. I do it once or twice a day. But this one grabbed attention and so far has had nearly 60,000 views - and some inspiring comments;

"Little old Brexit so proud we won against all that!"
"It's a tribute to the innate intelligence of the... brilliant British people that Vote Leave won"
"Makes you proud to be British don't it?"
"No wonder the press and academia hate the working mans voice they use our taxes against us."

And so on.

And ample evidence that the elitists, the metropolitan socialists, the Guardian-fodder both hate and fear the working class and ordinary Brits who have proved themselves so, so much more intelligent, more resilient, and more ready to make sacrifices for their children's good that the elitist sneerers would ever credit. 

Thank you readers - leavers and remainer both. Thank you British people. I go into Easter now inspired and filled with hope. 

Yes, it's biased and selective - it's a piece of counter-propaganda.

I have not studied a huge amount of classical history, more of a recreational dilettante than a scholar, however it seems as if we are living through one of the struggles that have occurred periodically throughout history between the patricians and plebs.

The outcome is always the same - the plebs prevail. The only variable is the manner of their victory.

Brexit is a very British revolution, and will ripple through history.

Just looking at the list of Leave and Remain donors and all that comes to mind is "The Few" I seems to be a common thread in our history, Agincourt, Spanish Armada, Battle of Britain. . .

a slightly abridged version

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he that day that voted with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And remainers in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they voted in,
And hold their manhoods cheap whilst any speaks
That fought with us upon Referendum day.

It's surprising that the Japanese government should support Remain. Would they really want to be in a Chinese Union ?

If I ask really nicely, might it be possible to tweak the list to include two names that really make blood boil?

They are Gina Miller and Tony Blair.

Ken Clarke would be nice, but not essential.

more ready to make sacrifices for their children's good

Neither a quality unique to Leavers , nor indeed to the British. It is characteristic of , pretty much all, parents through out history and that includes our parents who voted to join the EEC.

Problem is that our parents aren't always right about what is good for us. A point some BrexSShiteurs will only understand, I fear, when our children and grandchildren vote to rejoin, and become a canton of, the Superstate formerly known as the "European Union", a land flowing with subsidised lait and Honig. I pray God, that such as David Davies, live long enough to savour it.

While Guido’s headline number may well be OTT (downside of using median numbers) this revelation of the Guardian’s app harvesting profile info on ‘friends’ of their 3.2 million active users (plus any no longer active) may well put the CA numbers into better perspective.

Dream on sunshine. When our children or grandchildren get round to a vote - there won't be a poxy EUSSR to join. It will have perished long before and I shall be pi$$ing on it's grave.

jack ketch said...

Rumours of its impending demise....

I shall be pi$$ing on it's grave.

That would, for most BrexSShiteurs, make a change from pissing on the graves of all those who fought and died to stop the rise of fascism.

Oh its going down squire, it's just a matter of time.

Your last comment says so much more about you than I ever could.
You really are quite despicable.

Jack Ketch: "that includes our parents who voted to join the EEC."

Nobody voted to join what was then the Common Market. The Tories took us in without even mentioning it in their manifesto.

"all those who fought and died to stop the rise of fascism."

They weren't fighting for a German-dominated single state, were they?

Or for Englishmen to become a minority in London and other cities, and within a few decades a minority in England.

On this, the first day of the last year of EU membership it may be my imagination - but I doubt it - the media (BBC) are replete with as much anti-Brexit material as they can manage. There have, however, been some live interviews that, hilariously, went entirely against the BBC's agenda.... good on the public for that!

But one aspect of the discussion that is missed is that it's all about 'what happens to the UK post Brexit' but never 'what happens to the EU post Brexit'.

If the question of the effect of Brexit on the EU was more prominent then we wouldn't be listening to excuses for remaining - we'd be demanding concession after concession FROM the EU and they wouldn't be in a position to refuse us.

@Ketch - send me your home address - I'll mail you some brown dye for your shirts.

One of the most enduring memories for me will be that of the Left's golden wonder kid, Owen Jones, writing an article for the Guardian regarding the Troika's treatment of Greece, and supporting a Left wing 'Lexit',

And then turning full circle and lining up alongside the hated bankers, corporates, and currency speculators.

He is an ideal example of a political bubble that seems to have no relationship to street-level life.

@jack ketch,

I wouldn't be so confident - young people usually go about their lives not thinking much about politics; with the referendum, our youth are being confronted with arguments about democracy.

The European Union is anti-democratic - and our youth will figure that it doesn't matter who you vote for, 27 other countries will have the power dictate the big questions.

With the proposal that the 'soft power' of the EU's EEAS be backed up by an EU 'hard power' armed force, do you think our young people are going to endorse the chance of the UK being dragged into war for the EU.

Getting ahead of yourself a little bit, Napoleon.

@Rapscallion .....Nice one.

I give you this .....The Secret People (GK Chesterton)

"They have given us into the hand of new unhappy lords,
Lords without anger or honour, who dare not carry their swords.
They fight by shuffling papers; they have bright dead alien eyes;
They look at our labour and laughter as a tired man looks at flies.
And the load of their loveless pity is worse than the ancient wrongs,
Their doors are shut in the evening; and they know no songs.

We hear men speaking for us of new laws strong and sweet,
Yet is there no man who speaketh as we speak in the street.
It may be we shall rise the last as Frenchmen rose the first,
Our wrath come after Russia's wrath and our wrath be the worst.
It may be we are meant to mark with our riot and our rest
God's scorn for all men governing. It may be beer is best.
But we are the people of England; and we have not spoken yet.
Smile at us, pay us, pass us. But do not quite forget.

Well, they did forget. And they are beyond furious that the little people they so despise dared defy them and vote for Brexit and then - with all the might of the Establishment lined up against them - hold firm.

No other nation in the EU would have dared do it. And it demonstrates, once again, that neither the EU nor our own arrogant "Leaders" know or understand the character of the British working classes.

Nearly, not quite. In a contest beweebe the plebs and the Patricians the Patricians win. Unless a subset of Patricians ally themselves with the Plebs. Then the Plebs win. The Mogg looks patrician to me as does Boris. We only need a few Patricians, not a majority.

Great post Radders, hope you don't mind I borrowed your table of spending for my post at:

DeeDee99 @08:18 - Well said and cited; thank you.

My take has long been that the initial marxist classification of our people into "socio-economic classes" is wrong. In fact, the divisions marx and engels exploited are (wait for it) "RACIST." That is to say, those they identified as 'lower classes' are descended from the Celtic/Anglo-Saxon people whom the Normans had subjugated. We spent hundreds of years working ourselves out from under that yoke only to have the franco-germans undo everything by inciting 'class' conflict.

It's their eternal 'divide and conquer routine under a different guise; and now they've backed it up with the antics of the euSSR - who've injected a far more deadly dose of racism into the economic mix.
