The promotion of the grievance industry has got to have been one of the most pernicious, socially divisive movements of my lifetime. The ever expanding snare of “hate” legislation has had exactly the opposite effect of the one intended, but precisely the effect that so many of us predicted. Rather than bringing about tolerance & understanding it has simply fuelled mistrust & a sense of entitled victimhood. It has spawned it’s ugly, inbred sibling – identity politics.

We had an election. We had a high court judgement. We had a parliamentary vote. All for nothing.
I hope all remainers – both friends & foe – realise the long term consequences of saying election results need not be honoured or laws set aside.
I have been on the losing side of many political votes & debates. But I value the integrity of democracy & the rule of law more than I do my own point of view. If you don’t then it gives me no pleasure in saying that you are a fool of the highest order – like Esau trading his birthright for a pot of stew.

Boris uses the metaphor that’s long been on my heart,
We are at the shores of the Red Sea with the furious chariots of the Remainer army bearing down on us. Where is our Moses? Who will be our Joshua?
The only one I can possibly imagine commanding enough Godly authority & faith is Her Majesty herself. Raise your staff Ma’am!
Tommy Robinson was castigated by the media and even in Parliament for harassing a “journalist” at home. Except… they conveniently missed a few important details out. Oops. I’m sure it was accidentally.
