Bored of Brexit

Over the years, I have expressed very hard fought views about the EU, Brexit and the state of current affairs in Europe as a whole. The reason I have called this piece ‘Bored of Brexit’ is probably for a different reason than most. I’m bored of it being CALLED Brexit, mainly because this isn’t Brexit. It’s not what we voted for. It’s a backdoor to a forever union. Anyone savvy enough to delve deeper into what’s going on will see this.

The truth is, you will never achieve Brexit with a Remain PM. Yesterday and today’s crunch meetings for the PM serve as a healthy reminder that the Brexiteer wolves are at the door. I don’t think she can stave them off for much longer. The cabinet is full of Remain MP’s who don’t believe in Brexit, which is why we’re here with this pitiful, wretched draft agreement. If you were to take a step back and look at the bigger picture, I suppose it’s not all that bad. What I mean by that is, the PM struggled to get it through her own cabinet without massive uproar and resignations. It won’t get through the house and certainly won’t be agreed by ALL 27 members of the EU! So in that respect i’m still relatively calm about the whole situation. The eventuality of No Deal is pleasing to say the least, any deviation should be treated with contempt.

What’s really got me pondering is the pending leadership contest. This is the best, albeit last chance we will have of ousting Theresa the Appeaser and installing a proper Brexit cabinet. We need a PM that will give licence to a Brexit negotiator to go in heavy handed, throw the agreement out and say ‘we want no deal, convince us otherwise’. Which would be a much better negotiating position to start with. If we would have started with that then we could of had ‘Canada+++’ by now. We need a PM that isn’t scared to take the risks that will result in a brighter future. We need a PM that truly believes in the aims of the country. A principled PM that strives to deliver in the interests of the nation. A PM that will not go out with a whimper or to give in to the EU bully boys. A true conservative, that believes in upholding traditional values and boosting the national identity. We don’t need a ditherer with no direction.

In the coming days, there must be a trigger for a vote of no confidence in the leadership and a last ditch effort to save the country. The Tory party is consuming itself at an alarming rate and if this isn’t done, there’ll be nothing left to salvage. Without knowing it, they could send themselves into the political wilderness for the next 15 years, if they don’t get rid of May. She is harming the image of the party and taking it even further away from the true principals of conservatism. There needs to be someone to step up that is unashamedly Conservative and wears it with pride. In doing so, resetting the scales and pushing the political spectrum closer to what it used to be. At present, anything right of Communism is seen as Nazism. This can no longer be tolerated.

I think now more than ever is the perfect chance to stand up to the EU as a whole. There is disgusting rhetoric coming out of both Macron and Merkel, jousting for a European Army. Something I have warned of for years. These tyrannical, egotistical, unaccountable sentiments are shared by all in the echelons of power in Brussels. Not only is it ironic but also bloody dangerous. All i’ve heard out of Remain, is ‘the EU brings peace’ and ‘it was created as the end of all wars in Europe’. Which are both wholly untrue. Make no mistake, the EU has it’s own foreign policy, it just can’t act like it wants too, yet. Let me put it in layman’s terms. Would you vote for a united army of all nations in Europe? Yes I might hear you say, seems like a reasonable noteworthy idea to pool our resources and work towards the common good, building bonds with other nations and championing teamwork across borders. Ok I say, who’s going to run it? An Army General? All that power given to one man? As head of more than 30 nations? No surely not. Okay well how about it’s run by a government? Yeah that seems like a good idea, share the power. They can vote on if the Army can act, when, where and how. Sounds good? Okay, what about if a couple of countries don’t believe in using the Army for something that has been voted on? Well technically the parliament doesn’t make the decisions. All the main decisions come from the EU commission and so does all the money to run it so they have all of the say. And who runs it? The President of the Commission, so we’re back to one guy with all the power and might of Europe? What about if he has an agenda (which all leaders do), is he accountable? Can we vote him out if we don’t agree? No. Can the countries that don’t want to go along, veto it? No. Can these countries leave the European Army if they want? No. Can they stop paying contributions? No. Can they then leave the EU?…….Can they then leave the EU? I heard what you said. Do you see how hard the EU have made it for a major power like us to leave? Imagine the little guy, trying to get out. Imagine, Poland, Hungary, Austria or even Italy? The merry-go-round never stops.

To be fair, if it ever came to war i’m pretty sure we would kick the fuck out of them. We’re the only country to keep up our 2% of GDP contributions towards NATO and have a functioning Army, Navy and Air Force. Numbers may be low at present but cometh the hour, cometh the man. There may come a time in the future that we would have to go to war with the EU for their own good. The rhetoric for an army comes from them and what possible use could they have for an army? Is it because they now realise that having us as an ally would be advantageous? Have they also noticed that we have the nuclear deterrent and are the 2nd biggest power in NATO? Have they come to realise that they might not have the comfort of the best armed forces on their side? Or are they worried that there would be a sovereign nation outside of their control, on their doorstep which they can no longer bend to their whims. A strong, robust power with a huge economy, wealth, connections that span the globe and a queue of countries waiting to do business. If anything I think they’re scared of the prospect, they’re scared of being shown tough love from their neighbour. Something they NEED. We’ve been the sheriff of Europe for long enough, we need to concentrate on ourselves now and build for the future. A rocky, uncertain future at that. Imagine the possibilities!

We could concentrate more money on exploring space or send the first manned mission to Mars. We could retake the reigns of our destiny, be at the forefront of innovation and engineering. We need to think bigger. We need to make a mark and set the bar high for our first 5 years out of the EU. We need to reestablish ourselves as one of the biggest wealth creators on the planet, less restriction on the financial sector. We need to be up there with the US, strength breeds competition. You may hate Trump but my god does he create wealth. Something we’ll need plenty of, to pay off all the moaning parties that pout they’re not getting EU funding anymore, which was ours to begin with but that’s besides the point.

To finish, in the next few weeks we will see what we’re really made of. When it comes down to it, there is only right and wrong. The wrong thing to do is sit idly by as the country comes crashing down around you. The right thing to do is to take ownership and set about putting it right. Is there appetite for a Brexiteer leader inside the Tory party? Probably not, considering the vast swathes of Remain MPs. However, morally is it right that one should be in power? Yes. People that say we’ve wasted all this time, I would be inclined to agree with them for once. But we can put this right by showing support to a true leader of Brexit and of this glorious kingdom. You may hate my political babbling and intellectually lyrical masturbation but you can’t deny, I exude truth. I challenge anyone to explain to me why we shouldn’t have a Brexiteer PM. I challenge anyone who thinks the European Army is a good idea. Finally, I challenge the nay-saying politically morbid and ask them to explain why we can’t make ourselves the benchmark for all growing nations, around the world and be the older brother everyone needs, one that they can look up to.

The Proverbial Echo Chamber

I’ve been studying and watching for a long time now. Rather than express my views and argue the point with reason and logic. Over time you begin to realise you don’t make a difference. You also realise you can’t cure stupid with words. Part of me wants to give up writing as I fear words don’t carry the meaning they used too and I feel this is a direct result of the ever changing definition of words. Who decided that the government are the ones who change definitions of words? How are they qualified to do so? If there’s one last great bastion of freedom for people like me, it’s our gorgeously crafted language. For me, words carry power. The art of debate and discussion is lost in these times of offence and safe spaces. The last time I properly put the them to good use, was in the lead up to the referendum when I fought with remain supporters. We won. Yet I have watched as the dialogue became a monologue, when the words fell silent from the winning side. It seems that all was won at the time to most leave voters who had fought against the barrage of insults and the risk of alienating friends and even family members. I have experienced this first hand on both sides, I have also done my fair share of culling in the Facebook friends list. In doing so though I have started to create an echo chamber. The problem I have is that from what i’ve seen since these times, is there is no changing the minds of these people. Losing wasn’t enough for them, whilst I admire their fighting spirit as it is synonymous with the British culture I hold dear, you have to know when to cut your loses and carry on. 

It’s one long drawn out saga that feels and sounds like a broken record. It’s like being in the ring with the guy who does the slow get up at the count of 10 and says he’s ready to fight again, even though the ref has bought an end to the fight, then he feels aggrieved at the outcome. I think a lot of it is denial, as the media portrayed it as a battle already won, purely because of their biased opinions which in turn created a skewed reality for the remain side in this. Cynicism gets the better of me here where I mention that if the media tells you something, usually you shouldn’t believe it. Especially when they’ve already picked a side. To be fair it’s what made the win so sweet, was that it was considered a foregone conclusion by all major media outlets. This brings me to the current state of affairs.

The narrative is yet again skewed as they concentrate solely on May and her government and their handling or lack of, in this case, of negotiations. Mainly because it was never argued or part of the discussion in the referendum. The referendum itself was about the issue and whether or not it should go ahead, not about the substance of the issue. To me, a leave voter, I knew exactly what I was voting for. What they term now as hard brexit. As I understand it, if any part of the union exists between us then you haven’t technically left. What the remain voters want is to stay attached to the apron strings by staying in the customs union and single market, which is akin to saying “i’m leaving home” then moving into the shed at the end of the garden. Also what surprises me, is that the EU have proved the point I made all along about how they are, yet remain stay silent. These same people see how Poland and Hungary are being treated and how the EU are basically using communist regime tactics to punish the states. Also the fearsome rhetoric that emanates from Brussels of EU armies and nuclear weapons. I have started to call them the fourth reich. Especially after some of the language used by Merkel when she announced that a coalition has been formed recently, talking about a fresh start for Europe, implying that Germany was Europe or that she was the leader of Europe in some respect. Such disgusting remarks from a woman who single handed has dragged this continent into disarray. Stirring up religious and cultural resentment across Europe is nothing to be proud of. Her thinly veiled attempt at replacement migration will take years to sort out and has even made her make some u-turns in her policies. Germany is no leading light in modern day Europe, it’s also no secret that the EU was created because of Germany and their thirst for lebensraum. Take a seat Angela. 

Instead now we look to new ‘leading’ figures to show us the light and a solution to this nightmare we face. Strangely it has dropped in the lap of Poland. Their stance in standing up to the migrant quotas, even in the face of sanctions and public tensions with the EU is refreshing. They have become the new poster boys/girls of anti-EU sentiments, having taken the mantle from this toothless attempt at freedom by our majority remain cabinet. Same can be said of Viktor Orban, the PM of Hungary. I truly wish we had more politicians like him over here. He took a stand against this forced ‘invasion’ by erecting fences all along the border of his country and is trying to bill the EU for them, legend. Even though i’m not religious, Eastern European nations are taking a stand for Christianity in all forms and ensuring that the moral and cultural teachings that all of our lives are based on are protected and I have great admiration for that. Why is everyone on the other side so hellbent on trying to rip up our cultural roots? Is it out of what they perceive as guilt? It has been mentioned that some feel guilt over what European nations have achieved over the years with our colonial heritage. Taking a dim view that we offered nothing and took everything for ourselves. Can you not see that it has benefited every nation that it has touched? Have you noticed that most have wilted since we relinquished power? The only thing we didn’t get right was trying to give them one of the cornerstones to our way of life, democracy. Democracy doesn’t work in unadvanced countries. Whether it be down to the uncivilised factions that live in these countries that try to stunt the growth of the nation or whether they lack the understanding of the concept. With democracy comes power. Power in the hands of those untrained can only do damage. I won’t go into detail as I actually plan on writing a book one day soon in regards to the Empire.

My only wish is for the leave side to rear it’s ugly head and wipe remain out. I’m sick to death of sitting idly by as remain swallow whatever the soup of the day is with the mainstream media and speak as if they’re in a position of authority on the matter, as there is clearly no leadership or voice for leave. I feel they have slightly lost their way and sick of fighting a war that’s already won. It’s sad that there was division sown by our own media, you can’t blame either side for that. I’m holding out hope that this single issue is seen through to the end and not rerouted by the losing side. I’m coming back to the fray after taking some time out as I care about the future of this country and I can only see another war coming. We have a duty to lead the way and give others hope. Others like Hungary and Poland, we need to prove that it’s possible to leave this autocratic union and live your life free from the shackles of directives and people telling you what to do. That’s basically all the EU is, it’s a bully. It’s been taking our lunch money all this time and said we can sit at their table at lunch but only on the very end of the table as there’s 27 others on the table and we can’t have a say on what’s for lunch. That’s enough lunch metaphors as it’s making me hungry. 

You’ll be hearing from me soon.
