YOUTUBE: The Labour Party Tries to Scupper Brexit AGAIN (04 January 2019)
Viewers' comments: "This is just Labour trying desperately to stay relevant" / "This is sure to win back the Labour heartlands" / "How many loses do they have to suffer before they actually accept what the people of the UK want?" / "Oh what a tangled web they weave when first they try to thwart democracy" / "LABOUR: Let's shoot ourselves in the foot again" / "If there has not been an agreement after three years why should an extension help?" / "They never know when to give up" / They want democracy when it benefits them, but not when it doesn't" / "Labour: We lost because of brexit. Labour: let's block brexit" / "Further proving Labour has leant nothing post election. This will NOT get their base vote back in the north" / "Why, Mr. Corbyn? Why do you persist?" / Viewers' comments re: the 'child refugees': "'Child' refugees?? What the children that look 30 years old with full beards?" / "The refugee parents should go to their children. I wouldn't think of forcing my children to come to me. I wouldn't have left them in the first place" / "How about 'Heartless Parents' for leaving their children in the first place?" / "Remoaners care more about migrants than the impoverished seniors and veterans in their own backyard"
Your Daily Brexit Betrayal (03 January 2020)
"It's reported that [the interim co-leader of the Lib Dems, Ed Davey] will table an amendment to the WAIB which is getting its 3rd Reading next week, demanding an inquiry about the whole Brexit campaign and referendum result - and demanding a second Referendum. In the Red Corner, Jeremy Corbyn will table an amendment which demands that the negotiations must go on until 2023 ... These last attempts of Remain are obviously futile ... There's one other amendment which might have some chance of success, given the screeching and hysterics of the opposition laydee MPs at the 2nd reading of that Bill before Christmas..."
Loser Labour Party Pushes for Two Year Brexit Delay to Stop Clean Break (02 January 2020)
"Jeremy Corbyn and Keir Starmer have tabled an amendment to PM Boris Johnson's Brexit bill that would force a two-year delay if the UK does not agree on a new trade deal with the EU..." / Readers' comments: "Take a good look at your enemy, Britain" / "Have they learned nothing of why they lost the last UK election?" / "So, the Labour Party gets handed their biggest defeat in decades and they go right back to doing what got them defeated 3 weeks ago. Priceless!" / "These Marxists just don't understand this voting malarky, do they? We voted four times to leave the anti-European, anti-white, anti-Western EU, but the anti-British groups in our midst are simply never, ever going to accept our wishes" / "Labour continues on as if they can unilaterally dictate the terms of a Brexit. Disgraceful" / "Not only do the Corbynistas not recognise how far they currently are out of touch with the British public, they appear to be eager to take the party even further Left and make it even LESS appealing" / "They live in an echo chamber. Reality is a long way from their insider discussions"
MPs Vote for Boris Johnson's EU WA (20 December 2019)
"Britain took a big step towards the EU exit door on Friday when lawmakers gave preliminary approval to Conservative PM Boris Johnson's EU divorce bill in a decisive vote that broke years of political deadlock over brexit. The HoC, with its Conservative ranks swollen after Johnson's victory last week, voted 358-234 for the WA Bill, clearing the way for the UK to leave the EU next month..." / Reader's comment: "This deal leaves me with a sinking feeling. I think we're being stitched up. Boris could have gone with a real WTO Brexit but he has chosen this vile withdrawal treaty in order to unify the Conservative Party..."
PM Boris Johnson's Brexit bill cleared its first hurdle in the HoC on Friday, with the legislation reportedly 'Gina Miller proofed' to stop non-elected EU loyalists from interfering in the democratic will of the people ... New measures in the bill include legally prohibiting the government from delaying Brexit any further by extending the transition period, which puts No Deal back on the table if the EU will not accept a mutually agreeable trade deal. The bill also restores the primacy of Britain's courts over EU judges, by giving lower courts the ability to overrule European Court of Justice decisions that have been transposed into British law. The bill also removes a number of May's Brexit-frustrating paragraphs, such as:..."
2019: The Year the Media Lost the Plot (02 January 2020)
"Brexit has proved particularly difficult for journalists to cover objectively. Most broadcast journalists, in particular, clearly support Remain and don't do much to hide it ... The prospect of a No Deal Brexit revived Project Fear on steroids. The BBC swapped measured analysis for ludicrous scare stories ... Unable to get to grips with Brexit, journalists had to invent increasingly wacky theories to explain the publics commitment to leaving the EU ... Broadcasters' opinions often got the better of them ... such character judgements are not objective journalism ... Channel 4 clearly set out to influence the news agenda rather than report on it..."
Your Daily Brexit Betrayal (02 January 2020)
"Time is running out for Remainers and, it would seem, for the EU as we start this new month and new year, at the end of which we'll be out, no if or buts - or we ourselves will stick Johnson in that ditch. There is uncertainty, but suddenly it's not us poor benighted Leavers in tiny, helpless UK needing to be frightened - it's the other way round. What a difference a year makes! The first example of an official Remainer switching sides so quickly that I had to rub my eyes was the Mayor of London..."
The End of Remain (20 December 2019)
"One by one they have fallen. They've admitted defeat - to varying degrees - and vacated the battlefield that they dominated for so long. Michael Heseltine was one of the first ... Tony Blair was close behind ... The People's Vote movement has fallen apart. Poor Femi will now have to get a job. And even their queen - that moneyed legal agitator against the people's will - Gina Miller has realised that the rich cannot thwart democracy forever ... Of course it's possible we haven't heard the last of these people. After all, they have devoted the last three years of their lives to ensuring that the dumb, racist electorate, as they view us, doesn't get its way. It will be hard for them to give up the drug of anti-democracy..."
"Miller, who does not hold any elected office but who led the tactical voting campaign Remain United, now thinks the next field of battle will be over the future trade deal with the EU ... The former Best for Britain campaign chief had claimed in 2017 she has never been anti-Brexit when she won a High Court challenge that stopped the Conservative government triggering Article 50 - the legal mechanism for leaving the EU - without a vote in the then-Remainer-dominated parliament..." /
Readers' comments: "Why can't this woman understand that her 15 minutes of infamy are over...?" / "Why? Because she is a blind narcissist and a foreigner without any loyalty to, or understanding of, that which made and makes us, us" / "Miller is representative of the biggest current danger to the West. It is 'diversity' hire or appointment, particularly on the back of 'affirmative action and' faux qualifications" / "It is strange how the MSM provide this unaccountable termagant with the oxygen of publicity. I suggest that she returns to Guyana to devote her loud mouth and money to fighting the corruption that's endemic in that country, instead of screeching like a child about a country that she clearly doesn't understand and shows no loyalty towards" / "So, she admits that it's not about 'protecting democracy' as she claimed, it was always about stopping Brexit by any means necessary" / "I no longer see any reason why this Miller character is allowed to remain in Britain after all the social unrest and division she has created" / "She is one seriously vindictive foreigner!" / "It is no longer up to George Soros and his spokeswoman Gina Miller. The people have spoken and roundly rejected the insidious globalist, pro-jihad, Marxism currently being promoted throughout the West" / "Gina dear, just go away... for the love of God"
The Green Religion
Welcome to Boris's Blackout Britain (04 January 2020)
"Britain's prospects under Boris Johnson are obviously much, much better than they would have been under Jeremy Corbyn. But there's one area especially, I fear, where this Conservative administration is going to come seriously unstuck. It's climate change and energy policy, obviously. On its current trajectory, Britain's destabilised grid system is heading for more and more blackouts like the ones that caused chaos last August, stopping trains and seriously inconveniencing over one million people ... The more intermittent, unreliable renewables that are connected to the grid, the more unstable it will grow..."
Readers' comments: "The climate change scam has got to be brought down Boris - either you are with the people or the climate change scammers. 100 days Boris" / "Isn't it obvious? Climate change will go the way of UK-remaining-in-EU. First, the entire Establishment with Tories at the forefront will think it a cracking good policy and ignore arguments against it until they start losing votes in huge chunks. Then all of a sudden, Tories will declare climate change not such a great idea, after all, and finally fall on the side of the working classes who will have been the first [to] feel the economic pinch of a foolhardy cause" / "On 1st February we enter a BRINO period followed by the time-honoured (and highly entertaining) EU-inspired game of 'deadline/extend' which we've all thoroughly enjoyed over the last few years ... In the meantime Boris can give full vent to his liberal, 'progressive' agenda which will of course include pursuing an utterly bonkers climate-change policy which is designed to address a problem that doesn't even exist"
More readers' comments: "Boris would sooner be dead in a ditch than cancel Britain's commitment to reducing carbon emissions to zero by 2050" / "Boris has to comply with the law as it stands. There is no chance that on the matter of emissions, he would change it. There are no votes in it, but there are millions of votes to be gained and retained by pursuing her green agenda" / "Yes. But when that starts to cause great pain, the situation will change. And Boris's position with it. And that is where the votes will be" / "There seems to be nobody in parliament who has any idea of what an energy policy should look like" / "Use Trump as your model, Johnson. Get rid of the foolish 'renewable energy' and accelerate the use of coal, oil, and nuclear" / "The Brits along with all Stupid Europeans are so very steeped in the global warming nonsense that it is hard to imagine any sane commitments or legislation coming for a long time ... Maybe Boris will wake up before the rest of them" / "We can only hope, but one thing that is never put to politicians by the media: Why are you importing energy-demanding immigrants, many of whom, have nothing to offer, how is thaytt going to reduce our power needs. How is building hundreds of thousands of power hungry houses going to reduce our emissions"
YOUTUBE: Boris Christian Message: No Diversity or Islam Virtue Signalling (29 December 2019)
Viewers' comments: "Boris' [great-]grandfather was Turkish and was assassinated, he knows all too well about the religion of peace" / "It gave me immense pleasure to hear a western leader mention the C word out loud and declare his (our) intent of defending it. Good work Boris!" / "So refreshing to hear the 'C' word... was beginning to think it had been deleted from the English language. Thankyou Mr Johnson for reintroducing CHRISTIAN into our vocabulary. All we have heard is Islam and muslim constantly" / "I found Boris's speech refreshing and optimistic" / "Sign of the times when we're taken aback to hear a British PM speak in support of our historic faith" / "How refreshing to hear Boris talk like that" / "He was merely saying words that we should be using all the time, an issue that should be on our front pages and on which we should be campaigning and taking steps to end. If this leads to our being able to talk more about the persecution and mass murder of Christians today, then even just that will be a small historical achievement for Boris ... a necessary step that we can take back our free speech to educate the masses on what is really going on"
A Boris Bear-Hug Against British Anti-Semitism (27 December 2019)
"Is the British government beginning to change its century-old attitude of ambiguity towards Israel and come out instead as its unequivocal friend? Don't get too excited just yet. It's certainly true that, fresh from his thumping election victory, Britain's PM Boris Johnson delivered an extraordinary Hanukkah message to the country's antisemitism-beleaguered Jewish community. Going far beyond predictable seasonal bromides, he delivered a very pointed profession of heartfelt support..."
YOUTUBE: Christians Are Being Persecuted Around the World (25 December 2019)
"There is rarely any outrage in the mainstream about the persecution of Christians, good for Boris for putting it front and centre of his #Christmas message" / Viewers' comments: "Christians are being persecuted in majority Muslim countries, while Muslims in western countries are DEMANDING more privileges while claiming to be persecuted by westerners" / "Christians are near the bottom of the socialist victim hierarchy" / "All foreign aid should be halted to any country that does not guarantee religious freedom. The idea [that] my tax money is funding countries that then genocide people of my faith is outrageous" / "Turkey used to be more than 90% Christian. Syria used to be more than 90% Christian. Egypt used to be more than 90% Christian. Morocco used to be more than 80% Christian. Algeria used to be more than 70% Christian. Libya used to be more than 70% Christian. Tunisia used to be more than 60% Christian. Persia used to be more than 50% Christian" / "Let's be honest. A muslim slitting a nun's throat isn't nearly as bad as someone comparing the full body burka to a letterbox" / "As a Christian taxi driver in the UK, I was told that I cannot have a cross in my car because it 'might offend someone'. Yet every Muslim driver is allowed whatever" / "...there's nothing the left hates more than Christianity"
YOUTUBE: Historian David Starkey on Boris' Landmark Election Victory (18 December 2019)
"Historian, Professor David Starkey analyses the 2019 general election result. Is this the new British revolution? How will history remember the last Parliament of 2017-19? Why did labour lose? Should Boris take his chance to scrap the [BBC] license fee? Should we reform the civil service?" / Viewers' comments: "Well done to the interviewer for good solid questions and listening to the answers. They had a conversation rather than a duel. It is something that the dreadful Andrew Marr should learn from" / "Just what millions of ordinary, non-historians said all along... it was treason" / "His description of the left wing luvvie [and] students with pointless degrees who vote labour is absolutely stunning" / "Now there is a man worth listening to" / "Absolutely right in his insistence that those who conspired to thwart the Brexit referendum, and colluded with the EU to do so, should go down in history as traitors to the people and the country" / "I like the interviewer - he lets David speak without interposing his own views. So many interviewers these days end up basically interviewing themselves"
More viewers' comments: "The Sun, presenting academic interviews, while The Guardian shoots for low brow race baiting" / "Mr Starkey is a national treasure" / "His every word commands attention ... essentially banned on the BBC! Great interview" / "David Starkey is easy to interview. A couple of short questions lead to half-an-hour of riveting analysis" / "I think I agree with almost everything he said. And I'm a northern working class ex Labour voter" / "David Starkey you are a fine Englishman and you speak the truth" / "Great interview. Boris should have Starkey as an advisor" / "This is David Starkey at his blistering best. Unchained, in full flow, passionate for his country" / "So interesting. A man of his age and social background gets the Woke thing so accurately" / "A fascinating and captivating interview ... It is so pleasant to hear educated, rational discourse" / "Starkey is terrific" / "Imagine having Starkey as your history teacher" [EMcD: I can attest that he was a superb and highly entertaining history teacher! He was a tutor at the LSE but came across to Kings to give some of our Tudor history lectures and he always filled the lecture theatre - even with students who weren't studying the subject! He sometimes brought a glass of red wine into the lecture room and on one occasion I remember him knocking the glass for six as he flourished his arm while making a point!]
More viewers' comments: "Should be compulsive viewing for everyone who loves their heritage" / "This is a stunning overview on Labour under Corbyn" / "Dr David Starkey is always excellent. Boris Johnson and the Conservatives would do well to remember WHY they won so big ... Labour voters who switched to the Conservatives want two main things from the Johnson government: A real and clear Brexit and a genuine and substantial reduction in mass, especially third world, immigration into UK ... If [they do this] they will win the next GE" / "David Starkey is himself from a working class background and really does know his stuff" / "Hits the nail on the head every time he speaks" / "Yank here. This guy is just riveting ... He really understand what is going on" / "Mr Starkey sums up the Regressive Left in a brilliant way" / "Professor David Starkey is one of our finest intellectuals" / "I am an immigrant and agree with Professor Starkey whole heartedly. He is brilliant!" / "Brilliance again from David Starkey. Government should listen carefully to this gentleman" / "Excellent analysis. Compulsory for Traitors, Corbynistas, Students taking a 'soft' degree, and Remoaners" / "The man is a genius"

The General Election 12 December 2019
Battle is Fierce, Friends
The following is an extended extract from Battle for the Very Soul of Britain
"Nine hundred and fifty years ago, between two hillocks at Hastings, an Anglo-Saxon king took an arrow in his eye and England surrendered her independence. That was our last - should I say most recent? - defeat on home soil. King Harold's forces fought valiantly but they had been exhausted by two earlier battles ... A shrewd and ruthless Frenchman, Guillaume of Normandy, seized power and London's Witan parliament was never heard of again. ...
"I have been contemplating poor King Harold a fair amount recently. ... As a schoolboy I visited the northern French town of Bayeux to see [the] tapestry and remember a sting of sorrow as I saw the needlework images of vanquished Anglo-Saxons. It was always the same when I read history yarns about British chieftain Caractacus fighting the Romans on his hilltop and later being paraded in Rome as a chained captive; or gallant ... Boadicea, Queen of the Iceni tribe, charging towards the Roman lines in her chariot ... In such accounts, I always rooted for the Brits. ... I always wanted the dwellers of our dank and foggy, sea-set isle to seize the day. Was it a nascent sketchwriter's innate bias or inherited love of country from my fiercely patriotic parents? Was that love wrong? Is that love wrong? I still feel that way.
"The likes of Mr Cameron and his fellow Europhiles ... presumably feel something different when they look at the Bayeux tapestry. I suppose they experience a glow of quiet satisfaction that William and his forces of European integration over came the locals. ... A deep-rooted part of me rebels against that. ... I grieve for the freedoms that were squashed. And I feel just the same when I look at an castle built by English lords to crush dissent in Scottish and Welsh territory. My sympathies lie with the invaded. ...
"Hereward the Wake [a] Lincolnshire freeman ... had his lands taken by the Normans and decided to do something about it. For a few years after 1066, Hereward and his small army operated out of the Cambridgeshire town of Ely, then an island. They were beaten only after a treacherous monk showed the Normans one of the secret paths to Ely through the Fenland marshes. ... Almost a millennium after the event, I feel a lively indignation on Hereward's behalf. What a cur that monk was to betray him. What if Hereward had continued to oppose William? Could he have combined with the still unconquered Celts and Northumbrians to drive out the 'ingengas'? Or was Norman rule as inevitable as supporters of the EU now say their governing body is inevitable? As for that treacherous monk, was he a sort of Roland Rudd of his day ... the City PR smoothie pulling strings for the Remain camp? ...
"My support for Hereward may reflect a surfeit of foolish romanticism. But it may also echo enduring truths about the importance of self-determination and of remaining true to one's ancestral heritage. For what are we if we deny the past? What is the point of being British if we are not able to say who governs us? And let there be no doubt: if we vote to stay ion the EU, we will not be able to dislodge the elite that runs Brussels. They will be impervious to our democratic disapproval. They will be as safe as William and his shaven-headed Normans were in their mighty castle keeps. ...
"The Leave campaign ... has urged voters to quit the EU for a range of reasons ... Hereward the Wake ... would have heard Vote Leave talk of how we must 'take control' and would surely have thought 'I don't really want control - I want liberty.' ...
"It would obviously be good for us to retrieve national control of trade decisions, tax matters, ... immigration policy ... But where is the optimism in Leave's campaign? Where is the appeal to something more positive, more human, more ardent? The hearts of Hereeward the Wake and his 'green men' would have burned for something greater; something more essential. You could call it self-determination or independence but it is basically the right to plant your feet on the clifftops of Kent, raise your eyes to the cloud-scudding sky, and relish your ancient liberty as a free-born Briton. ...
"I think of my grandfathers. One was wounded three times on the Western Front in World War I. The other landed in Normandy - Normandy! - just before D-Day to clear the beaches of mines. They fought for king and country, yes, but they fought most of all for an idea: freedom. The days of ancestral sword and scramasax may have passed but that powerful notion of liberty, the spirit of British dissent which flared so wonderfully in the East Anglian fens 950 years ago, must never be allowed to die. Without it, we would be an island without pride, an island shorn of soul"

"These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood. And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth" (Genesis 10:32-11:9).
