And here is my piece in today’s Far-Right Guardian, in reply to the very wise and original article by Anne Perkins, who seems to have – literally – taken a leaf out of my book in telling Labour to challenge the lies – or, as I prefer to call them, LIES – of the Hard-Right Brexiters. As ever, there’s a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, below this piece.
It’s time for Labour to be bold and challenge these Brexit lies
Very well said, Anne. I couldn’t put it better myself, which is why I – literally – didn’t.
Friends! As Anne has so wisely pointed out, the whole Leave Camp’s campaign was based on LIES! And the biggest LIE – which, for some strange reason, Anne didn’t mention, even though it was a colossal LIE – of all was the one, emblazoned as I recall all over the side of a Far-Right omnibus of distinctly bigoted, racist and reactionary tendencies, which claimed, and I’m quoting exactly what I remember it said, viz:
If there is a vote for Leave on 23rd June, we on the Leave side do solemnly swear that from 24th June a minimum of £350 billion per day extra will be spent on Our NHS.This is a firm pledge, literally signed in blood by all leading figures in the Leave Camp. No ifs, no buts.
– a flagrant, despicable LIE!
And, given that all these vicious LIES – which were in no way equalled by anything said by the Remain Camp, whose scrupulousness with the facts was notorious – were literally swallowed by that tiny handful of 17,410,742 Hard-Right bigots and racists, who literally didn’t know what they were voting for, last summer’s Referendum was – literally – jolly unfair.
Referendums are, in any case, a weapon of demagogues and dictators – i.e. Camoron – and should never be employed for important decisions like this, which should be decided by qualified people, i.e. Our MPs.
Unfortunately, however, it appears that – with the honourable exception of Our 114 MPs, who bravely voted against Brexit last night – Our MPs are not qualified to make the correct decision on this either. (What a spineless crew those 498 MPs are, viciously voting for Brexit, and betraying Our EU, eh, friends!)
Our Judges, friends!
Fortunately, though, friends, there is one group of wise, informed, and impartial people in this so-called country – which Thatcher totally destroyed – who are ideally qualified to make an informed decision to stop Brexit!
In case any of you have forgotten, there have already been two Referendums held of these good people – the first back in November, and the second last week – in, respectively, Our High Court, and then in Our Supreme Court. And the good news is that both these Referendums resulted in overwhelming majorities in favour of Remain!
Surely, friends, we can leave things – literally – there? Our Judges have already made their views clear, and since by their behaviour last night, MPs have shown that – with the honourable exception of The 114, who will go down in history as heroes, along with Our 48% – they are quite unable to make the correct decision, why should we not let Our Judges make the final decision?
That is, after all, what Our EU would have wanted.
