Finally, Britain stands on the brink of Brexit victory.
No, I don’t mean Boris Johnson’s new deal, which may or may not prevail.
I mean that the British people’s fury with the shenanigans of the liberal elite has reached such a pitch that nothing — neither the police nor our rule-makers nor our bent, parti-pris judiciary — is capable of stopping us prevailing in the end.
For evidence, look no further than the glorious scenes at Canning Town Station in East London this week, when a sickly-looking pair of Extinction Rebellion milquetoasts were yanked from on top of a Tube train carriage by angry commuters and told exactly where they could shove their green revolution.
Apart from their ongoing difficulties delivering Brexit, by far the biggest worry about Boris Johnson’s Conservatives is their craven subservience to the green sky fairy.
I’ve just been watching one of their panel discussions on energy and environment, broadcast from the Tory conference in Manchester, and it made me feel quite ill.
Even MPs that you know are secretly sound on green issues and know the whole climate change scam to be hogwash have to go through the motions of pretending that Net Zero — decarbonising the UK economy by 2050 — is a practical, achievable and conservative policy. And it is, of course, none of those things.
“The last time we were in territory like this it was decided by civil war.”
One thing I love about British constitutional historian and national treasure David Starkey is that he’s never knowingly understated.
Another thing I love about Starkey is that he’s always right about everything.
So I think we should take very seriously his damning verdict on the disgraceful decision by Britain’s Supreme Court that it had the right to meddle in affairs which, for centuries, have been left to parliament.
Today’s decision by Britain’s Supreme Court is shocking but not remotely surprising. Essentially a cabal of Remainer Establishment stooges in gold-braided judicial robes voted, nem con, to raise their middle fingers to British democracy and to punish Prime Minister Boris Johnson for his temerity in trying to deliver Brexit.
Ostensibly, the court’s ruling concerned the legality of Johnson’s prorogation of parliament.
In reality, it was yet another power play by the Remainer Establishment which for over three years now has done everything it possibly can to frustrate the democratically expressed wish of the British people to leave the European Union.
Britain’s Supreme Court has ruled that Boris Johnson’s prorogation is unlawful.
Let’s not waste time poring over the legal niceties of its decision. This is a coup by the judicial establishment, the vast majority of which happens to be comprised of shameless, doctrinaire Remainers.
It’s not, of course, the first time this has happened. Back in 2016, while it was still a pro-Brexit newspaper, the Daily Mail infamously ran a front-page story headlined Enemies of the People.
Something terrible has happened to the UK news cycle. Has there been a glitch in the space-time continuum? Is it like the final scene of Terminator II being played out in 3-D?
I’m referring, of course, to the unwelcome reappearance in the media of three has-been politicians most of us would have happily preferred never to see again in a million years: Tony Blair, David Cameron and John Major. And all three of them on the same day…
Two Brexit campaigners were chucked out of the Last Night of the Proms in London’s Royal Albert Hall at the weekend after security caught them unfurling an offensive banner which read ‘Brexit Now.’ They had been attacked by Remainers in the audience who tried to rip the banner from their hands.
The official excuse proffered by the BBC, which hosts the event, was that the banner was “too big.”
But everyone knows the real reason: the BBC loathes Brexit and it loathes Brexiteers even more. That’s why it has gleefully hijacked this most quintessentially British — and Brexit-y — of events and transformed it into a toe-curling paean to the joys of political correctness, identity politics and the European Union.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has allegedly ruled out a general election pact with Nigel Farage’s The Brexit Party. Furthermore, a ‘senior Tory source’ has poured scorn on both Farage and his friend and occasional donor Arron Banks, describing them as ‘not fit and proper’.
I’m not sure how much of this is true: it comes from the Mail which, though generally accurate and professional, does tend to spin things in a Remainer direction…
But I do think that if Boris and his colleagues are indeed making such pronouncements then it is a foolish, unforced error: a needless slight to a potentially invaluable ally; an insult to the many natural Tories who currently trust the Brexit Party more; and a boon to Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour whose only chance of gaining power is if the Brexiteers and the right can be divided.
