If you campaigned, canvassed and contributed for the UK to Remain in the EU; if you debated, debunked and defriended me on Facebook; if you ridiculed, rubbished and rebutted every argument for Leave, but now graciously accept the democratic outcome, you have my sincere respect. Thank you for engaging in democracy. It’s a very precious thing. I know – I’ve been on the losing side many times.
If you still insist you were cheated, demand another referendum, or otherwise reject the outcome, then please listen to what Pat Condell has to say. My name is Peter Shields and I endorse this message…
It’s a b***k day when a senior police officer faces disciplinary action for demanding the highest standards of integrity & conduct. I suspect the investigation will be a w***ewash.
I long for the day when leaders with a back bone give short shrift to the sanctimonious, self-righteous, cry bullies who make these complaints and discipline them for being spiteful, cretinous, thin-skinned, time-wasting, rabble-rousers . Alas, our public institutions seem riddled with petty tyrants who seem to fall over themselves in a rush to implement the latest Newspeak edicts from Ingsoc. Who will rid us of these turbulent high-priests of secularism?
In the meantime it is important to be reminded just how thorough & inclusive is the forgiveness Jesus offers:
“Come now, let’s settle this,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.” (Isaiah 1v18)
When it comes to killing children, men should shut up.
Nicely put in this argument.
An article of undiluted truth. Absolute belter by Rod Liddle, delivering a rasping condemnation of the arrogant, illiberal, condescending rabble of anti-democratic elitists bent on reversing Brexit.
Particularly galling are the quotes from Anna Soubry, Paddy Ashdown, John Major and a gaggle of other “People’s Vote” (sic) advocates from pre EU-referendum result. The ones where they say things like “this is your only chance, the result must be respected & honoured” etc. Of course, that’s when they were expecting the outcome to be completely different. [Ironically, my auto-correct just tried changing “respected” to “rejected”!]
Well this article will go down like a lead balloon with everyone who is keen to parade their Pride credentials or covets a Stonewall accolade.
We all know that “putting the best interests of the children first” is the right thing to say. But the children won’t kick up a fuss if you don’t – after all, they don’t know any different. So when it comes to a choice between the children’s best interests or being brandished a homophobe, Islamaphobe or bigot we all know that the “best interests of the child” take a distant 2nd, 3rd or 4th place with most place self-respecting, self-preserving adults and professionals.
How dare anyone even write such an article?
