Brexit Is Britain’s Greatest Victory Since WWII. Let Us Go Forward Together To The Broad, Sunlit Uplands of 2020.

With apologies to Churchill and great respect to his deserved successor who can confidently plan for 10 years in Downing Street if he so wishes.

Brexit was about love of our country and self-determination.  It was not, as the hate-filled Remain campaign alleged, about racism, xenophobia, immigration, looking inward or disliking European cultures and people.

As for lies, the biggest lie of all was Project Fear. It eclipses completely the clumsy exaggerations and overclaiming of the Leave campaign.  Project Fear was a systematic, well-funded campaign by big business and bankers, driven and managed on their behalf by the EU.

I’m a Europhile but an EUphobe. The EU is not Europe. It is a bureaucratic monolith established by those big businesses and bankers who have put their oligarchs in charge. It has run an extraordinarily successful disinformation campaign, persuading those who consider themselves ‘progressive’ that it is a benevolent institution. It’s exactly the opposite and I’m astonished so many intelligent people have been had by this disinformation, completey suckered by EU propaganda.

Let’s just be grateful that wiser judgement has prevailed and at the end of this month we will be out.  I know a lot of people are very sore.  I am an admirer of Jeremy Corbyn for his great personal integrity which was severely tested by sinister forces, particularly over the fake antisemitism smears but he is no leader and that was clearly shown in the election campaign.  As a Leaver himself he tried to muddle through with a useless compromise position on Brexit which was his undoing.  I wish him well for the future and there is a role for him as a statesmen-like campaigning politician once he is free from the shackles of his smaller-minded colleagues who forced him into that doomed strategy.

By contrast, Boris Johnson is not a man of great moral integrity. But while I wouldn’t lend him a fiver, he is a great leader and to return to the wartime analogy, I would go over the top with him.  He is inspiring and he gets things done.

I am only just beginning to understand the scale of the Tory victory and the depth of defeat of Labour and socialism.

The people’s verdict could not be more clear.  The facile ideas of socialism, promoted, virtue signalled and claimed as popular on social media are fanciful.  This isn’t the first time that the British people have expressed a decisive opinion on left wing philosophy but the metropolitan, champagne socialists that dominate Twitter and Facebook never seem to get the message.  Let us hope they can now come to terms with reality.

If this new government can espouse true Tory values of liberty, individual responsibility, small government and free (but properly regulated) markets, then we have cause for great optimism.  What we must guard against is the malevolent big business and monopoly power influence that does exist within the Conservative Party.  Margaret Thatcher’s small business background is where the true soul of the Tory party is to be found, not in the elitist world of David Cameron and Theresa May.

Please be a true Tory government. Set Britain free and give us the independence and enterprise to be the great nation we truly are.
