IF you want to suck up to the establishment in this country, then you better back Brussels.
If you want to be a well-paid talking head at the BBC, or climb the greasy ladder in Westminster and Whitehall, then you must say that only thick racist peasants who will all soon be dead voted to leave the European Union.

Even when warbling Land Of Hope And Glory at the Last Night Of The Proms, you should sport a blue EU beret and wave the EU flag as though you would die for it.
Want to get ahead? Then bend the knee to Brussels.
Because backing Brexit has always been the anti-establishment belief.
The real rebels are not grey old men like John Major. The true dissenting voices are the millions of ordinary, working-class patriots who believe — and it is such a simple belief — that we can be a free and independent nation once more.
The true dissenting voices are the millions of ordinary, working-class patriots who voted Leave[/caption]
Remain could not win the argument at the polling booths. Even today Remainers are running from a general election. But Remain may yet win in
Parliament and the Supreme Court — those comfy, pro-Remain safe spaces for the British establishment. In the Supreme Court and Parliament, they can’t hear the people scream.
And yet David Cameron seems to truly believe that Boris Johnson backed Brexit only as a cynical career move.
“The conclusion I am left with is that he (Boris) risked an outcome he didn’t believe in because it would help his career,” Cameron told ITV’s Tom Bradby.
But the idea that backing the Leave side is a cunning career move is stark raving bonkers. If all you cared about was your career, then Remain has always been the only sensible option.
From the House of Commons to the House of Lords, from Whitehall to Broadcasting House, from every living ex-Prime Minister to the President of the United States, from the head of the IMF to every stand-up comedian looking for a gig on TV panel shows, from the presenter of Match Of The Day to Dame Emma Thompson and every luvvie in luvvieland, the might of the establishment has always been fanatically in favour of the UK remaining in the EU.
The rich, the powerful, the famous, the educated, the elite. And if all Boris Johnson cared about was his career, he would have sided with them.
Cameron is quite right to suggest that it was the Leave side that appealed to the Tory heartlands — “so loaded with images of patriotism, independence and romance,” Dave sighed, with a touch of what sounded like envy.
But it is still crackers to assert that Boris helped his career by taking on the Brussels-loving establishment.
Far from being a cynical career move, backing Leave could have seen Boris Johnson’s political career end in catastrophic failure. And it still might.
When the PM promises to deliver Brexit “do or die,” the “die” bit is a distinct possibility. Rich Remainers have failed to persuade the people that
Brexit is bad so they seek to persuade Supreme Court judges to make Brexit go away.
One day you may wake up to discover that a law has been passed or a High Court ruling made declaring that Brexit is illegal. On that day, democracy is dead here.
Whatever happens to Brexit — if it is banned, delivered, cancelled, or if we end up with some token Brexit in name only — the lasting legacy of these toxic times will be that the establishment dismissed the largest vote for anything in our country’s history.
A British Prime Minister — David Cameron — looked us in the eye and told us that whatever we decided, our decision was final.
COUNTRY TORN APART
Parliament has placed itself above the people. The courts place themselves above democracy. MPs shun a general election. Our freedoms are betrayed by an elite who think they always know best.
For over three years, the establishment has treated our people with an unfettered, sneering contempt.
Whatever slippery ruse they come up with next to abort Brexit — from arcane Parliamentary procedures to sombre Supreme Court rulings, to ducking a general election to collaborating with Brussels — their apocalyptic arrogance will never be forgiven or forgotten.
The bitter national debate that has torn our country apart has never been about Remain versus Leave.
It has always been about the establishment versus the people.
And guess who is winning?
New Low For Leftie Bullies
THE Guardian newspaper, the font of left-wing compassion, sneered that David Cameron had only suffered “privileged pain” at the death of his seriously disabled son, Ivan, in 2009.
Loss – Cameron with Ivan[/caption]
The mind reels at the twisted notion that ANYONE who loses a child does not have their heart ripped out. That this sickening tripe can be printed in a national newspaper defies belief.
Adventurer Ben Fogle, who had a stillborn baby with his wife Marina in 2014, responded on Instagram with words that came straight from a broken heart.
“There is no privilege in holding your dead son in your arms,” wrote Ben. “There is no privilege in holding my tearful wife once a year as she sobs uncontrollably on his birthday. You have made me feel such rage that I want to punch the editor in the face.”
Only The Guardian could have written about the Camerons’ lost son in such heartless terms.
It is the dehumanising, lefty world view that allowed Labour’s John McDonnell to say that Esther McVey should be “lynched”.
It is the twisted perspective that sees Tories portrayed as “scum” by Jeremy Corbyn’s fan club.
There is no bully quite like a caring, compassionate, left-wing bully.
ONE statistic has stayed constant in polls about voting intentions in a second EU referendum. The number of “don’t knows” is steady at 21 per cent.
What’s fascinating is that, on the great issue of our age, the leader of the Labour Party is proud to call himself a “don’t know”.
You haven’t got a bloody clue, have you, Jeremy?
Cabbing It Away
STRICTLY bosses are making the show eco-friendly.
The plans range from sustainable materials for the spangly costumes, to green hotel certification for all the overnight stays, to reusable water bottles in the rehearsal studios.
Celebs and pro dancers are also being encouraged to share late-night taxis.
But haven’t they been sharing taxis for years?
Pasha Kovalev and Rachel Riley. Kristina Rihanoff and Ben Cohen. Kevin Clifton and Stacey Dooley. Strictly has a long and noble tradition of celebrities and dancers sharing late-night cabs to save the planet.
Although I am not sure it ever cut down on emissions.
A Lad In Trouble
“I SHOULD have known better then but I didn’t and I am deeply sorry,” said Justin Trudeau when a photograph emerged of him blacked up as Aladdin at an Arabian Nights party.
Sorry Past – Trudeau[/caption]
OK, Justin – we forgive you. Just about! Even though you were 29 at the time. Hardly a crazy mixed-up kid.
But now more images are revealed of the world’s most right-on leader in blackface, including Trudeau in an Afro wig crooning The Banana Boat Song.
Justin Trudeau seems to have spent his entire youth and young manhood in blackface.
Even Prince Harry only dressed up as a Nazi once.
Guy’s So Deluded
“THE world order of tomorrow is not a world order based on nation states or countries,” shouted Guy Verhofstadt, the EU Parliament’s Brexit Co ordinator, at the Lib Dem conference.
“It is a world order that is based on empires. We European and you British can only defend our way of life by doing it together in a European framework and in the European Union.”
Then Guy posed with a “B*****ks to Brexit” T-shirt.
Verhofstadt is premature in pronouncing the death of the nation state. Millions of people, and not just the British, have a profound love for their country. Patriotism is a basic human instinct.
And Verhofstadt seems oblivious to the fact that no empire lasts for ever. The Roman Empire, the British Empire, the Soviet Union – every empire fades into history.
So why do the old men in Brussels always imagine that their European Union empire will last for ever?

We all love Ariana in this country. But I do hope she has planted a few trees back in America.
Just to offset Myron and Toulouse’s carbon paw-print.
