Subject: RE: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
Let's put it another way - we've ended up in the shit.
We need to try another route. If you are content with a situation where your tax money goes to buy police cars from Skoda - if you want to extend this sort of largesse to our European neighbours - fair enough, I can see why you're really happy this week.
Of course the EU will hit us with everything they've got when over 12% of their funding disappears. But we didn't get into this shit overnight, and sometimes you've got to take the high road.
BWM -of course no one invests in us. Why would they when EU policy sticks the kybosh in wherever is most painful.
Jim - would it be possible for you to stretch your mind back to when we had virtually an open door policy to Commonwealth citizens coming here to work. West Germany at the time at the time had a strict gasterarbeiter policy and once their usefulness was over they had to piss off. East Germany actually had a wall round it. These countries had some making up to do. Our histories do not really start from the same page.
Anyway what the the bloody point. there are never any sensible rebuttals just reworded insults. the self righteousness quotient of the Remainers is up there in the guzillions. the last time i remeber anything like this was when the trots stopped Callaghan from making a single campaign speech, so clever and superior was their knowledge. And of course it ended in tears - 18 years of Thatcher.
By frustrationg moderate opinion on this matter - you will usher in the period of Farage/ and Boris - -possibly the most right wing gang of bastards in the history of electable British politicians. Well done fellas. You victory is virtually complete. because it will come to an election and you will lose.
I never really understood those lines about Lester Maddox in rednecks by Rany Newman- till I saw Boris in extremis last week - 'he may be a fool, but he's our fool. If they think they're better than him . - they're wrong.'
