The way things are going there is likely to be a second referendum/general election over Brexit. And if/when that happens I suspect a browbeaten and fearful British public will vote to remain in the EU BUT what would happen if the EU refused to accept this reversal in public attitude and insist that the UK leave the EU as per Article 50? Think about it for a moment. The EU could insist on a whole new set of concessions from the UK. Force through the EU’s declared desire to end vetoes on important issues. Require the UK to raise its tax levels to make us less competitive. Demand the relocation of major financial businesses from London to Paris and Frankfurt.[…]

David Davis has resigned over May’s Brexit that isn’t Brexit proposal. Supposedly, this is a big deal. If you believe the very excited chatter on social media then Theresa May would appear to have the political life expectancy of an ice cube in a blast furnace. I’m not so sure if that’s true or if she is all that concerned about her career. Let’s face it, Brexit was never going to be easy or painless. The EU made that abundantly clear during the referendum campaign. (Yet many people seem to not have noticed this at all. We’re they asleep?) That didn’t bother me as I felt, and still do feel, that the relatively short term pain was worth it in[…]

As the days go by it seems more and more likely that my prediction that Brexit will never happen is coming to pass. I know that there are many out there who’d be utterly delighted by this turn of affairs but I warn them that the EU isn’t above holding grudges or seeking a bit of revenge against those who have crossed the line of acceptable behaviour, in their eyes. Here’s a few guesses as to the price we will have to pay if Brexit doesn’t happen: The total loss of the UK’s EU rebate. We will be expected to ante up as a form of compensation for all the hurt and extra work we have put the EU through. The[…]

About 15 minutes after the UK electorate shocked the Powers That Be (PTB) by voting for Brexit the campaign started to overturn the referendum’s result. Now let me be clear, I don’t have a problem with that. Nor do I have a problem with the many people who have openly called for an end to Brexit. If the result had been the other way around, Remain winning instead of Brexit, then I’m pretty sure the Brexit community would have fought just as tenaciously for another referendum. My problem is that I think the Remainers are succeeding. Here are my reasons for this pessimistic assessment: MSM The mainstream media, well most of it, are relentlessly pushing the message that Brexit =[…]

I view the human race as my personal entertainment system and the current US presidential contest has really delivered on that front. Here are my highlights so far. 1. The way both sides have been trying to make out that their candidate cares about you and your needs. What a pile of mouldering moose dung! They will lie, cheat, obfuscate and bluster until their lungs collapse just so you, the “dear sheeple”, will believe what they say. All politicians are in it for THEMSELVES. They are there to grab as much booty as they can and to Hell with you and your snivelling little lives. I’ve even heard radio interviews with the “dear sheeple” who talk as if a candidate is[…]

Ever since we (the UK) dared to vote for Brexit we’ve been bombarded with pro-EU messages by various Remain supporting personages and organisations. The idea is to convince us that we’re hopelessly out of touch xenophobic bigots and morons AND that our vote to leave the hallowed EU was the biggest mistake ever made in a referendum. The actions of the leading lights of the EU, since the Brexit vote, have made me ever more certain that my vote for Brexit was the right thing to do. Not just for me but for the UK and for the rest of the EU. Here’s one example…. Chancellor Merkel (Germany), President Hollande (France) and Prime Minster Renzi (Italy) had themselves a mini-summit to[…]

A top secret EU plan has fallen into my sticky hands. Once the UK activates the Brexit process the following will occur. 1. The channel tunnel will be blocked with stale croissants. 2. All cross channel ferries will be sailed into the middle of the English Channel and sunk. 3. A giant water slide will be constructed stretching from Calais to just short of Doveu, UK, Brexit, cultural purgeeueuer. This will be called the EU migrant disposal system. 4. The EU, having decided to prevent further internal dissent, will build a new Atlantic Wall stretching from Scandinavia to the Rock of Gibraltar. It will be manned with members of the new EU Grande Army. 5. Fearful that the UK might[…]

There’s a vocal group of people bemoaning the fact that the UK dared to vote for Brexit during the recent EU Referendum. (And I don’t really have a problem with that, they’re just exercising their right to freedom of expression.) But I was left wondering exactly who the Remainers should be blaming for their failure to win that infamous referendum. Let’s look at the three centres of Pro-EU feeling in the UK, as shown by the EU Referendum results. Data sourced from the Electoral Commission website. Here’s what I found. Northern Ireland Vote for remain: 440,707 Total Electorate: 1,260,955 Percentage of the total electorate that voted remain? 34.9% Scotland Vote for remain: 1,661,191 Total Electorate: 3,987,112 Percentage of the total[…]

Those who dared to vote for Brexit (I admit I did so) now seem to be the focus of a backlash. Who’d have thought that could happen? Apparently, old gits like me (strangely enough, my twitter name is Mike Old Git Hodges) have stolen the futures of the young whingers, sorry I mean young voters and young people in general, by voting for Brexit. Apparently I voted for Brexit because: I am senile. I am a racist. I am ignorant. I am old (49 years old, bald, wrinkly, ugly and terminally uncool). The fact that I made my decision based on a wide variety of factors including my own research, life experience and weighing up the pros and cons doesn’t come[…]
