And first of all, a rather embarrassing confession! [Oh dear, Lefty – what have you done now? – J.C. If you’ll have just a little patience, Jeremy, I shall tell you! – L.]. Namely, I meant to put out this little collection yesterday, but totally forgot!
Hey ho, friends! Better – literally – late than never, eh! Anyway, here are three pieces I wrote in the Far-Right Guardian last August and September, all of which were about Brexit. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.
Brexit Armageddon was a terrifying vision – but it simply hasn’t happened (article by Larry Elliott, 20.8.16)
Friends! Larry Elliott cannot possibly be correct.
I have been watching the BBC News ever since the vote for Brexit, and they have regularly and reliably informed me (a) that the economy is literally crashing due to the vote for Brexit, and (b) that if any economic indicators should by some strange chance be in any way positive, that is of course because Brexit has not happened yet.
And, friends, if even the Far-Right neoliberal BBC, whose anti-EU bias is notoriously notorious, is prepared to admit that the vote for Brexit has resulted in such disastrous consequences, then how can any of us on the Progressive Left – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. me – doubt that that tiny handful of 17,410,742 Hard-Right racists, who misguidedly voted against Our EU last month, and who represent nobody but themselves, have literally devastated the so-called British economy, which Thatcher destroyed?
No wonder, friends, that those of us on the Progressive Left are revolting!
Theresa May ‘acting like Tudor monarch’ by denying MPs a Brexit vote (report, 28.8.16)
Friends! Theresa May’s utterly disgusting and outrageous decision to bypass Our MPs on Brexit is sheer Fascism! It is the single most destructive act since Hitler burned down the Reichstag, which as we all know was a direct consequence of the fact that Our EU did not exist in those days, as its Health and Safety regulations – belittled and mocked as they are by Hard-Right elements – would have prohibited such a dangerous act from being carried out in the first place.
Let us hope, friends, that Our House of Lords will now step in to democratically prevent Brexit, which as we all know is the result of a totally undemocratic vote of a tiny handful of 17,410,742 Hard-Right racist neoliberals, who are either members of the 1%, or aspire to be, and who in any case represent nobody but themselves.
It is now clear that Brexit is a total disaster, with complete economic collapse, accelerating Climate Change, World War III and higher roaming charges all over the world (and indeed elsewhere), plus the looming prospect of mass redundancies in Brussels, as just a few of the milder consequences. And all this, despite Britain not even having left Our EU yet! Imagine how much worse things would become, friends, if we were so foolish as to take such an appalling step as to actually leave Our EU!
Now that this totally unelected Tory Government is attempting to override the democratic will of the majority of the British people – i.e. the anti-racist, anti-Fascist 48% – in our clearly-expressed desire for Britain to Remain in Our EU, as demonstrated by our overwhelming victory in June’s totally undemocratic and rigged so-called Referendum, and which the Far-Right Theresa May – who, let it never be forgotten, friends, was not selected from an all-women shortlist, in a typical piece of Hard-Right Tory sexism – is now determined to ride roughshod over.
No wonder, friends, those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. me – are revolting!
Brexit is truly daunting: this is the biggest crisis I have known (article by William Keegan, 4.9.16)
Friends! William Keegan is, of course, totally correct, even if he has, as ever, understated his case.
Britain is now literally the laughing-stock of the world, and indeed elsewhere, as a result of the arbitrary decision of a tiny handful of 17,410,742 Far-Right racists, who viciously voted for Hard-Right Brexit in June, and who represent absolutely nobody but themselves.
Now that the £ – that oppressive symbol of Far-Right imperialism and neocolonialism – is now literally worthless against Our Euro, and Our Stockmarket has crashed to its highest level for well over a year, and the British so-called economy – which Thatcher totally destroyed – has literally tanked, where are the so-called Brexiters now, friends?
They are, friends, all in hiding! Understandably, given that Our Remain Camp’s entirely accurate and precise forecasts – e.g. total economic collapse, World War III, accelerating Hard-Right Climate Change and higher roaming charges, together with the prospect of several redundancies in Our Brussels – have all literally come true with a vengeance.
No wonder, friends, that whenever I encounter my friends from the Continent, they are literally convulsed with laughter at the sorry state of the British economy, especially when it is contrasted with the booming Euroland economy where – to take just a couple of examples – youth unemployment in certain parts of Southern Europe is less than 50%, and Our Italian Banks are still practically solvent.
What a contrast, friends, this happy state of affairs in Our EU is with the so-called British economy, where literally billions people are forced to work 95-hour weeks on Zero Hour Contracts in compulsory Foodbanks, while the widely-hated, totally unelected, sociopathic Bullingdon Bully Boy Theresa May sadistically quaffs champagne whilst burning £50 notes in front of them. No wonder literally nobody wants to come and live in the UK, friends!
And given this literally state of affairs, friends, is it really any surprise to hear that those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. me – are revolting?
