Black Thursday

The “naughty boy” of Europe expels itself

Yesterday was a black day for the UK, not because the nation’s decision may be proved wrong, but the way it was influenced.

The electorate were forced to make a decision on the future based on mere propaganda and prejudice.

And ironically the decision to leave was triggered by the Bourgeoisie but mandated by the Proletariat.

Engineered by lies from well off, self serving, right wing politicians and business leaders who will “remain” unaffected by the gathering hardships caused by Brexit.

After choosing an ineffectual and unelectable Labour Party leader, has anti-establishment sentiment shot itself in the foot once again?


And is the uncertainty of out nation’s future the result of the selfish ambitions of this particular clown and his mates?

Boris Johnson

As without his support Brexit would have probably failed. Shame on you Boris!

The British people have spoken. A lied to, misled, disaffected minority have unwittingly pushed us into an abyss.

It’s so “it’s the rich what gets the pleasure and the poor what gets the blame”.

  1. And already we’re hearing “We didn’t say that” and according to Nigel Farage the bus livery was a mistake, believe that if you might!
  2. Dismal, lifeless, spineless – Jeremy Corbyn let us down again

    One by one the awful spectre of what’s to come has paraded across our screens: Norman Tebbit, father of all this, John Redwood, Neil Hamilton, Liam Fox, Iain Duncan Smith, Michael Gove and Boris Johnson, with a triumphant, “We have a glorious opportunity!”

  3. Wake up. We do not have to do this. We can stop this madness and bring this nightmare to an end through a vote in Parliament. Our sovereign Parliament needs to now vote on whether we should exit the EU.

    The referendum was an advisory, non­binding referendum. The Leave campaign’s platform has already unravelled and some people wish they hadn’t voted to Leave.

    Parliament now needs to decide whether we should go forward with Brexit, and there should be a vote in Parliament next week.

    Let us not destroy our economy on the basis of lies and the hubris of Boris Johnson.

  4. There are liars and then there’s Boris Johnson and Michael Gove

    The Brexit figureheads had no plan besides exploiting populist fears and dismissing experts who rubbished their thinking

    The real division in Britain is not between London and the north, Scotland and Wales or the old and young, but between Johnson, Gove and Farage and the voters they defrauded.

    What tale will serve them now?

    • On Thursday, they won by promising cuts in immigration. On Friday, Johnson and the Eurosceptic ideologue Dan Hannan said that in all probability the number of foreigners coming here won’t fall.
    • On Thursday, they promised the economy would boom. By Friday, the pound was at a 30-year low and Daily Mail readers holidaying abroad were learning not to believe what they read in the papers.
    • On Thursday, they promised £350m extra a week for the NHS. On Friday, it turns out there are “no guarantees”.
