‘Exit From Brexit’ Dinner: Remoaners Pledge To ‘Never Give Up’.
Over a curry, hard-core Remoaners, led by Nick Clegg, currently looking to scrounge money for his new think tank, Open Reason, pledged to ‘never give up’ in their efforts to subvert the democratically expressed wishes of 17 million people.
Attendees were a veritable rogues gallery of Remoaning. Clegg himself was there so was Chuka Umunna and, of course, so was Anna Soubry. Mr Umunna told those present that:
“It’s madness for us to be leaving the European Union, so let’s stop it from happening.”
Mr Umunna and Ms Soubry have been working across party lines to marshal opposition to the government’s EU withdrawal bill, which sets the legal framework for Brexit. However, despite the current government omnishambles, they have yet to inflict substantial defeats on the government.
Outside the £200-per-head dinner protestors helpfully summed up the views of the Brexit-supporting British majority in one placard which declared:
“Newsflash: Remain Lost Vote & Marbles”.
They also expressed strong support for Arlene Foster, leader of the Democratic Unionist Party, credited by many this week, including Jacob Rees-Mogg with saving Brexit.
