The funniest thing about the Remainiacs on Twitter, and no doubt elsewhere, is how unhinged a high proportion of them appear to be. When I engaged them the reaction I got was often hilarious, occasionally slightly unnerving. I was accused regularly of being a Russian troll, a Russian troll bot, or is it Russian bot troll? Either way it sounds a bit strange and I'm none of those things clearly.
I copped for more than my fair share of the usual 'racist', 'xenophobe', 'fascist', 'Little Englander' and many more of those words now rendered meaningless by the politically correct left who have no idea what they actually mean but just fire them at anybody who disagrees with them. Quite sad really.
Just as an aside what struck me most about the Losers' March, indeed any gathering of Remainiacs over the last couple of years, is the huge proportion who drape themselves in the EU flag while wearing EU berets, t-shirts and having their faces painted with the blue and gold flag. Yet dare fly an English flag during the World Cup and these same EU jingoists will cry 'racist', 'xenophobe' or any of the other abusive terms from the paragraph above. But they are so arrogantly absorbed in their own self-righteousness that the irony is lost on them.
Then there are the arrogant, often tasteless assumptions so many Remainiacs make about those of us who voted for Brexit. The most disgusting of these being that old people voted Leave without any thought for their children or grandchildren, indeed they have utterly wrecked their futures and another vote should be held when they die off. How many of these people will point to other cultures when it suits them to show how they respect their elders so much more than we in the West do? They cherish their elders and children learn from them by co-habiting in happy family groups running to several generations. But dare support Brexit and they condemn you as a selfish, destructive old bastard.
Then there is the old 'you Brexiteers didn't know what you were voting for'. I grew tired of having to repeat that I voted Leave meaning out of the Customs Union, out of the Single Market and out of the influence of the European Court of Justice (ECJ). Actually as an aside I was amazed how many Remainiacs didn't know the difference between the ECJ and the European Court of Human Rights. Yes, I know there are people who voted Leave who want us to stay in the Single Market in the Norwegian style but I don't agree with them, I want out, I don't regard that as Brexit but we knew things were not black and white before June 2016, they rarely are, but that is no reason to block Brexit or call for another vote, that's life.
The other Remainiac attack is that Leave lied during the campaign. They quite clearly and in my view mischievously misrepresent what was said by hundreds of campaigners during the campaign. Different campaigners expressed their personal views, on all sides during the campaign, that is politics. If you expected both camps in the campaign to sing from exactly the same hymn sheet then you are either stupid or stirring the pot. Take for example the Vote Leave battle bus. What it said on the side was:
'We send the EU £350million a week
let's fund the NHS instead'
Put aside that Brexit won't be happening for another five months so how any benefit may be spent is irrelevant now, the Remainiacs make a big deal about this being a lie. No, it is not a lie. It does not say 'let's spend the £350 million on the NHS' it merely states 'let's fund the NHS'. Anybody who claims it means spend that £350 million on the NHS needs to go back to school for some English lessons or is making things up.
I want us take back control which means leaving the jurisdiction of the ECJ. I want us to be free to trade with the whole world rather than be locked into an introverted, bureaucratic and stagnating authoritarian block that belongs in the dustbin of the twentieth century.
If anybody has lied during the 2016 campaign, and since, it is the Remainiacs. They claim to know why 17.5m voted Leave and to know why we didn't know what we were voting for. Patently an absolutely whopping lie
During the referendum campaign the Remainiacs claimed, repeatedly that this was a once in a generation referendum, there should be no more and the government must be allowed to enact the result. They now claim to want a second referendum on the terms of Brexit. They are liars whose intention is to subvert the vote in 2016 and want us to remain in the EU. They were only adamant about 'once in a generation' when they were convinced they would win.
Since 2016 there has been a stream of venomous Remainiac political figures scurrying like rats to Brussels and Strasbourg schmoozing up to Juncker, Barnier and other Eurocrats trying to subvert the peoples' vote we hheld in 2016 for their own sordid egotistical, unpatriotic reasons. People like Blair, Heseltine, Cameron, Cable and others. Interestingly most of them would be dismissed as irrelevant old farts by Remainiacs if they were Brexiteers.
No, the Remainiacs, combined with the cultural Marxists of the left, have created the most vile and destructive atmosphere in public life that I can remember. They are intolerant and refuse to accept that there was a campaign, that there was a free and fair vote and that they lost. Ironically they hide behind democracy by calling for a second vote, a vote only the Remainiac losers want because they are the political equivalent of spoilt brats stamping their feet because they want their own way.
The sting in the tail is that 66% of people voted to stay in the Common Market in 1975 having been promised/lied to that it would never be other than a trading bloc. We were lied to and, as the bureaucrats expanded their power and influence by stealth, that entity evolved into the European Union. Their own work turned that 66% in favour in 1975 into a 52% for leaving in 2016 despite millions of old people dying in the intervening years. How very EU.

I must have been seriously active for nearly 40 years, starting during my school days, but can honestly say I have never known the political class held in such low esteem as they are today. Every day they seem to actively go against the wishes of the electorate. People are concerned at the huge level of immigration into our country. The establishment let more and more people in. Sick of seeing aid money go to countries that have enough wealth to develop space and nuclear weapons programmes? The government will ring fence or increase the aid budget. Sick of seeing the Blue Badge for disabled motorists being abused? The government are planning to hand out 600 000 more to people who are more than capable of walking a few miles but have some 'unseen disability'. The list is endless.
The anti-democratic forces of the EU and our political establishment are now working their hardest to subvert that referendum and once again trample on the wishes of the electorate. Theresa May, a Remain campaigner, stupidly called a general election in 2017 and threw away the Tories' slim majority. During that campaign both parties pledged to honour the wishes of the people and committed themselves to Brexit. Now they've had our votes they are once again reneging on their promises and doing everything to make Brexit less and less likely. The EU negotiators are working hard to put obstacles in our way and are proving every day to be only interested in punishing us and the citizens of the EU for us having the audacity to say enough is enough.
Now there are increasing calls for a second referendum. Interestingly the Remainers didn't mention wanting a second referendum during the campaign, largely because they arrogantly expected an easy win and never expected the peasants to revolt. Now the usual suspects are being pushed out in their bathchairs to demand a second referendum and are calling themselves 'The Peoples' Vote'. Funny that the people voted in 2016 but they don't accept that as 'the peoples' vote'.
When the establishment really want to piss off the people they trundle out that ridiculous caricature of a self-important, pompous, up his own arse twat Peter Mandelson. This week he's been calling those of us who voted for Brexit racists, white nationalists, xenophobes and Trump supporting far-right extremists. How to piss off nearly 18,000,000 voters with one fat, narrow minded, greedy, grasping gobshite. If the Leave campaign had made such ridiculous, totally unfounded remarks about the other side there would have been calls for a investigation, probably by the police for hate speech.
There is anger and resentment at large but my fear is that so few people will be angry enough to get off their bums and actually scare the establishment that we are heading for Brexit in name only. The French would now be ripping up paving slabs in Paris and burning tyres on their motorways. Maybe the great betrayal is not only the establishment betraying the people, but the people betraying our proud history and acting like lambs to the slaughter.

I'm not sure which started pissing me off first, Radio 4's The Archers or the BBC's EastEnders. The Archers is now a ludicrous parody of what it used to be with more social problems and misfits than the most depressed inner city suburb in the worst modern city. The Archers has been hijacked by victim obsessed social justice warriors who are now the only people who listen. Likewise EastEnders, very BBC.
Now then, on to Coronation Street. Here's a quick idea of the characters now inhabiting one small street known as Corrie:
A gay vicar who is now a heroin addict.
A gay bloke who works for a dodgy legal firm.
A gay bloke who is as camp as a row of tents.
A gay mechanic who is about to date rape a heterosexual character.
A gay woman who cleans windows.
A gay woman who is the daughter of a factory owner.
A gay Muslim woman who is married to a Muslim bloke.
There was a transgendered 'woman', now shuffled off the mortal coil, who was obviously a woman playing the role quite unconvincingly, far too much like a real woman.
Then there are any number of unfaithful, multi-married/divorced heterosexuals, not to mention numerous murderers over the years and several disasters such as gas explosions and trams crashing off the viaduct onto the street. Recently there was the most convoluted attempt at a racist murder that turned out to have nothing whatsoever to do with race, as we all knew, but the writers had to clamber on a very rickety bandwagon that was verging on farcical.
So if that urban nightmare isn't for you you decide to forget about the numerous disasters to befall the place, such as planes and helicopters crashing onto the residents, and you move to the Yorkshire Dales and the picturesque village of Emmerdale. Big mistake, here is, from memory, a list of characters living in Emmers:
A gay lad who owns a scrapyard and has found his younger sister who has recently snogged another young female character.
A gay bloke who married the above then got a female character pregnant, left his 'husband' but is now back playing happy families with him and the poor little offspring.
A gay doctor popped into the village for a few months while the 'husband' and 'husband' were split up.
A gay vet who seduced her previously heterosexual boss.
A pub owner who has slept with most of the men in the village, as well as Leeds and Bradford, but is now having a passionate lesbian fling with above vet.
The heterosexual people in the village are mostly unfaithful and several times divorced. Watch out for tedious times in this one because it usually means a cull of characters by mass murder or a whopping great disaster. If urban and rural life really was like this, rather than booming, our population would be shrinking as millions of us fled for more peaceful lives in somewhere like Syria or Afghanistan.
No wonder they warn you at the beginning of these soaps that you might find them disturbing and offer helpline numbers at the end for anybody disturbed by the content.

Theresa May was probably the worst Home Secretary in living memory, certainly in my living memory. And she is fast gaining that epithet as Prime Minister.
She lacks any vision, belief or principle and seems more interested in soothing and placating our enemies in Brussels than honouring the 17,400,000 of us who voted for Brexit.
The latest reports suggest that she is being swayed by civil servants and Remainiacs close to her to go for a soft Brexit, including remaining within the Customs Union. As usual she is invisible and silent displaying an utter lack of leadership.
Talk of a two year transitional period from March next year is bad enough, the word now is that this could be extended. May must go.
Graham Brady, Chairman of the 1922 Committee has now received forty letters from backbench MPs calling for a leadership election. Please God give eight more the courage to join the decent forty, sooner rather than later.

Meanwhile the peasants on social media are targeting Ann Widdecombe with pitchforks at the ready and no doubt a pyre prepared ready to burn the heretic. Her sin? She declared her belief that Prince Harry's bride to be would be trouble for the royal family with her background. Fair enough if that's what you believe. But the peasant uprising was triggered by cries of racism. Yes, our old friend racism has reared its head yet again for no apparent reason other than the racial obsession of the politically correct. Markle describes herself as being mixed race as her mother has a shot of African in her ancestry somewhere. So in these strange times in which we live criticising somebody who describes themselves as mixed race is racism. But all intelligent, rational people know it isn't.
What started me on this post was actually a radio programme I heard last week when driving from Lancashire to Sussex. It was the Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2. Yes, I know, I should have swapped channels but it was my equivalent of rubber necking as I pass a terrible accident, it was so bad I had to carry on and couldn't bear the idea of switching channels. When I was studying for my degree there was an option to study TV and film history which I resisted for a long time thinking it was the History (my degree) equivalent of media studies. In the end I gave in and really enjoyed studying films such as The Battleship Potemkin and TV series such as Play For Today. TV and film really are excellent pointers to the times in which they were made and the prevailing cultural and political environment. Last week's radio experience says everything about our new status as a nation of wimps, in years to come people will be shocked at how we let this happen to us.
First up was a woman called Clare Pooley, aka 'Sober Mummy'. If I told you she thought that shortening her pseudonym to 'SM' was a little racy you may get an idea where this is going. Apparently she is an internet phenomenon after giving up booze and blogging about it prior to finally leaving her alias behind and writing a book under her real name. I was immediately drawn in as I work in the 'hospitality industry' and quite enjoy a tipple myself.
So as I hit the M6 toll road I tuned in and heard how her life had been running out of control and she was knocking back booze every night after she had put her offspring to bed just to unwind. But the problem got worse and worse and began to take control of her. The tension mounted and I was having visions of her hiding bottles of whisky, rum and assorted other spirits around the house and eventually necking a bottle of White Lightening for breakfast. Like me Jeremy Vine must have been desperate to know how bad her addiction was. When pressed she owned up. She was necking a bottle of wine a day, sometimes two at weekends. What a fucking let down, one bottle of wine a day and sometimes two at weekends does not an alcoholic make.
When I was growing up I knew blokes who'd have six pints of beer on their way home from work, guzzle a bottle wine with their evening meal then go out for a few pints after that. The father of a friend of mine, who actually was an alcoholic, used to insist on putting the milk bottles out at night as the rest of the family went to bed. He had a bottle of whisky stashed in the garden and would have a slug or three as he put the bottles out. That's a drink problem.
Clare Pooley is just another whining, middle class mum claiming victim status and doing a great disservice to people who have been in the absolute gutter of life due to alcoholism and turned their lives around. They're the people I admire and respect. I'm afraid she'll have to kick a habit that involves imbibing a lot more than a bottle of wine a day to get my admiration and respect.
