Three Years Ago We Voted Brexit. Here’s the Real Reason We Haven’t Yet Got It…

Brexit

Today is the third anniversary of the EU Referendum. Like all Brexiteers, I can remember exactly where I was when I heard the result. And more importantly, I remember exactly how it felt.

It felt as people must have done on VE Day. (Quite appropriate, really, given what the E in VE Day stands for…)

It felt how that preeminent knight of the Crusades Reynald de Chatillon must have felt on his release after years in the lightless, airless, foetid dungeons of Aleppo.

It felt like that time I chatted up a Norwegian barmaid well above my pay grade and instead of being turned down I got lucky.

Girls will love it – and there’s just enough eye candy for boys: Big Little Lies reviewed

The latest from David E. Kelley, who also wrote Ally McBeal, shows he has a rare knack for getting inside women’s heads

Six hundred and thirty years ago, Chaucer revealed in ‘The Wife of Bath’s Tale’ that what women really want is to be totally in charge of everything. With Girl now back home permanently having done her A levels, I can confirm that this is true: no longer am I in control of what we watch on TV, not even when I plead that it’s my job and how else am I going to be able to afford the extensive tour of Magaluf and Bali etc. that she’s got planned this summer?

But I don’t mind really because it means I’m forced to watch stuff there’s no way I would have seen otherwise. And in doing so I become a better and wiser person because of all the fascinating things it teaches me about the female psychopathology.

Mark Field MP Should Be Promoted — Not Suspended — for Manhandling that Greenpeace Harpie

LONDON, ENGLAND - JUNE 20: A climate change protester is escorted out after interrupting a speech during the annual Mansion House dinner on June 20, 2019, in London, England. Greenpeace volunteers wearing red evening dress with sashes reading "climate emergency" gatecrashed and disrupted the beginning of Chancellor Philip Hammond's Mansion …

I know it’s a bit late but please could we put forward Mark Field MP as a wild card candidate for the Conservative leadership contest?

Sure he’s a Remainer – and clearly no match for Boris Johnson.

Even so, he deserves some kind of recognition for the brisk way he dealt with that Greenpeace protestor at a private dinner in London last night.

You’ll presumably have seen the footage by now because it’s all over social media. Somehow, a group of Greenpeace activists managed to infiltrate a black tie dinner event at the City of London’s Mansion House.

The BBC Is the Enemy of Britain and British Values

A BBC logo is pictured on a television screen inside the BBC's New Broadcasting House office in central London, on November 12, 2012. The BBC announced that two of its executives were standing aside on Monday and warned more heads may roll as it battles with a major crisis over …

How depressing it would be if the typical Muslim in Britain today were embodied by Abdullah Patel?

Abdullah is the imam at a mosque in Gloucester; doesn’t speak English that well; has a burning sense of grievance about a thing he calls “Islamophobia”; is a fan of Jeremy Corbyn because he scares “Zionist’s” [sic]; thinks Gaza is “the modern day Auschwitz”; warns women who have been sexually assaulted that “it takes two to tango”; supports CAGE (the organisation which had a research director who once described the ISIS killer Jihadi John as “a beautiful young man”); is deputy headteacher of a heavily criticised school with an Islamic ethos and curriculum…

Call me old-fashioned but I don’t much like the cut of Abdullah’s jib. Chippy, whiny, cry-bullying, over-eager to play the Muslim card at every opportunity, sympathetic — at the very least — to terrorist sympathisers, casually misogynistic, antisemitic (though no doubt he’d gloss it with euphemism anti-Zionist), and probably thick as mince, Abdullah is emblematic of so much that is wrong with cultural cohesion in Britain today.

The BBC Leadership Debate Had a Clear Winner – Farage’s Campaign to Scrap the TV Licence Fee

There was one clear winner of last night’s BBC leadership debate: Nigel Farage’s campaign to abolish the TV licence fee.

The BBC is a disgrace, an embarrassment, a monstrosity. Its politics are so relentlessly woke, its bias so shameless, its hatred of the values shared perhaps by the vast majority of its viewers so flagrant, that it is quite incapable of serving its claimed purpose as the nation’s source of fair and balanced information.

Any properly functioning democracy would have pulled the plug on such a malign and corrupting institution long ago. As it reminded us once again last night, the BBC exerts a powerful and pernicious effect on Britain’s body politic, exploiting its near-total domination of broadcast media first to dictate the terms of the political debate and second to push them in an ever-leftwards direction. (The Overton Window.)

It’s the BBC’s leftwards enlargement of the Overton Window we have to thank for the fact that we’ve got an antisemitic, terrorist-supporting Marxist on the brink of government; the reason that, for at least ten years now, is the Conservative government has not dared to do anything remotely conservative; the reason, largely, that people feel like strangers in their own country and no longer feel able to speak their minds.

That dog’s breakfast of a politics debate we endured last night was the very exemplar of all these failings.

Ban on All-Male Writing Teams – Just What Comedy Needs…

British television network ITV has banned all-male comedy writing teams from its shows.

This follows an insight by the network’s Head of Comedy, Saskia Schuster, that “an awful lot of my comedy entertainment shows are made up of all male-writing teams.”

Truly this is an aperçu to rank with the Pope being Catholic, bears using woods as their toilets, night following day, etc.

Channel 4’s Rigged Leadership Debate Had Two Winners – Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage

Conservative MP Boris Johnson (L) leaves a house in London on June 7, 2019. - Boris Johnson, considered the frontrunner to become Britain's next prime minister, is Friday challenging a private prosecution bid accusing him of misconduct in public office over the claim that Britain sends £350 million ($440 million, …

The two runaway winners of last night’s Channel 4’s Conservative leadership contender debate were Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage.

Boris Johnson won with his genius strategy of not bothering to turn up – having calculated, correctly, that it was beneath his dignity.

Nigel Farage won because the whole grotesque event was an excruciating reminder of how constipated Britain badly needs the purgative force of The Brexit Party.

Gosh, I felt almost sorry for the Conservative candidates – Michael Gove, Sajid Javid, Jeremy Hunt, Dominic Raab and Rory Stewart – who had been railroaded into participating in this excruciating and often nauseating farce.

Boris – pointedly represented by an empty chair – came across as calm, collected, refreshingly free of cant, and utterly impervious to the idiotic questions tossed in his direction by Channel 4’s house imbecile Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

Police are investigating five allegations of electoral fraud during the Peterborough by-election, which The Brexit Party lost to Labour by a narrow margin of fewer than 700 votes.

Cambridgeshire Police have confirmed that one allegation relates to bribery and corruption, three to postal vote fraud, and one breach of privacy of votes.

EXCLUSIVE — Tory Brexiteer Tells Breitbart: Party Needs Agreement With ‘Kingmaker’ Nigel Farage

Boris Johnson is serious about delivering Brexit but he’ll probably only be able to do this by calling an early General Election in October and by reaching an accommodation with The Brexit Party’s leader Nigel Farage.

So says Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.

Bridgen is a leading member of the European Research Group (ERG), the hardcore of Brexiteers — aka the Spartans — who mostly refused to accede to Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement because it didn’t deliver meaningful Brexit.

It would be weird if Gove hadn’t taken drugs

Cocaine is an abominable drug, by far the most hateful of all the various uppers and downers and psychoactives because it turns you into such a complete moron.

The problem with coke, as my friend, the drug historian Mike Jay, once explained to me, is that nature never intended us to use it the way we do. In its raw, coca leaf form, it’s a handy and pleasant stimulant, just what you need to keep you going on a long trek over the Andes. But in its refined form it’s just nasty, not least because it plays a cruel, built-in trick on you. You take cocaine to get high — and sure it helps, up to a point. What it really stimulates, though, aren’t the pleasure receptors but the impulsive part of your brain that makes you want more and more of something.
