After the 2016 referendum, 17,410,742 “Leave” voters were accused of being either thick, racist, or too old to matter. As one of them, my vote has been attacked illegally and continues to be watered down through political concessions. Remainers’ celebrated the deaths of “Leavers” because a new referendum would then change the decision. Intolerance personified.
The novelist Ian McEwan
suggested that “the deaths of many elderly Brexit voters over the next two years would help swing a second referendum in favour of Britain staying in Europe. A gang of angry old men, irritable even in victory, are shaping the future of the country against the inclinations of its youth” despicable McEwan told a conference of remain supporters in Westminster.
Oldsters, Brexiteers, freshly in their graves!
“By 2019 the country could be in a receptive mood: 2.5 million over-18-year-olds, freshly franchised and mostly remainers, 1.5 million oldsters, mostly Brexiters, freshly in their graves” he said. No atonement there then!
Leavers of Britain
It’s time honest, hardworking people who are the backbone of our society stand up and say this isn’t acceptable. The will of the people must be upheld and those who voted leave respected just the same as everyone, no matter which way you voted in the 2016 referendum.
“Leavers of Britain offers a way for people to take politics into their own hands: DIY activism! People from across the country can create events to fit their level of time commitment and use Leavers of Britain’s free-to-use promotional campaign materials”.
We, they, believe in a clean Brexit, one that means the UK controls its own laws, money and borders. We believe in the UK being an independent country from the EU. We reject all forms of intolerance, discrimination or prejudice towards anyone, as well as Leave voters. We confront and condemn racists and others who seek to hijack the Leave vote for their own ends.
“We support the efforts of our genuine politicians and social leaders in creating a fairer, more enterprising and freer country. It’s time to see the best in our nation and the hard-working, good people who make it great. We’ll do everything in our power to achieve that”.
And remember “If you care about democracy, overturning the referendum is a profoundly dangerous thing to do”. As is now known Yougov shows, someone we don’t know would make the best Prime Minister of this country.
That’s the worst PM we’ve ever had, 23 points ahead of the Opposition Leader…drain the swamp!
