George Soros – If I Have To Fight For Brexit Again – I Will
So George Soros is backing a campaign to thwart Brexit and the will of the people. To the tune of £6million and probably a lot more. No surprise there. Did it even need to be a secret dossier? We could probably have figured it out either way. The elite has been throwing tantrums since the 23rd June 2016.
Like many of you, once the Referendum was announced I campaigned for Brexit for months, every weekend, often taking time off work, and during the last leg took a whole week off to do it, plus lunchtimes and after work, and any other time I could spare. My dad, who is in his eighties, came out leafleting too, sometimes giving impromptu commentary to people on how we could not throw it all away, otherwise what was all the sacrifice of the 2nd world war for? I never thought that if we won that it would be dragged out and we would be so messed about and lied to. My biggest worry was that we wouldn’t win – that people would get cold feet and be frightened or bullied into voting to stay in the EU. I naively believed that the biggest battle would be getting the vote over the line. And certainly, I knew that many employers were trying to exert pressure on their staff to vote to remain. I thought the actual vote would be the only struggle… and that once won (if we won) all of the bickering and bullying would stop. How wrong could I be!
Back to campaigning – I was glad to have taken the last week off work to campaign, not the least to avoid all the naysayers at work. Our last Brexit stall was a triumph of physical strength as well as spirit – we stood on Kilburn High Road for about 8 hours. Lots of different people joined us over the day, including Vote Leave who turned up with T-shirts and boxes of stuff to add to our own collection from GO etc. We covered off both sides of the road and left it suitably adorned before leaving! We had everything to fight for and we only dragged ourselves away when we couldn’t stand up any longer. And it was worth every second. The reaction from taxi drivers, buses, market stall holders, shoppers and people from all different backgrounds told us we were much appreciated. It was a day to remember and we gave it our all, supporters coming and going throughout the day to help. It may sound corny to say there was a special feeling in the air but there was. The beeps and waves from traffic, people – especially taxi drivers – stopping their vehicles and running over for stickers – all added to the feeling, even George Galloway’s bus!…. We knew we were on the cusp of what could be our last big chance, and we had to grab it. The feeling was amazing. A momentous vote was upon us.
But although we rode on a high of positivity through the campaigning, towards the end I felt worried. I lost some confidence and braced myself to tell my dad that we might not win, as he was so sure we would. When I phoned him though he assured me we WOULD win and the result would 45/55% to us (and he wasn’t far wrong!). He told me to trust in the British people. I guess living in London amongst so many of the liberal elite and Remainers wears you down and I still felt worried…
And I have to say that the people I REALLY admire and hold in awe are the ones who knew from day one not to trust the EEC as it was called then and had campaigned from the beginning all those years ago, to leave. People like Nigel Farage, Jimmy Goldsmith and Lord Pearson of course. They knew all along and it took the rest of us a long time to listen, but we got there in the end.
The evening of the vote we all headed down to the town halls for the count. I was surprised to be greeted so happily by one of the counters – he said he was so pleased to see us walk through the door in our GO T-shirts – in his break he came and told us the civic centre had been flooded with Remainers from early on – he himself and all his local community had voted Brexit he said (he was Hindu). Heartening to here. I had a feeling that might be the case as I received a warm welcome while campaigning in the Ealing Road, shop holders even offering me shelter from the rain. And we didn’t do badly considering it was Brent – apparently the most ethnically diverse borough in the UK – just shows how wrong the Remainers were, claiming only ageing white racists voted Brexit! I have to add though, that one of the so-called Remainers did say to me how impressed they were with the Leavers, how driven and determined we were, and how we just kept going. They’re not all miserable I guess! And the joy when the result came through was unbelievable – we had actually done it!
And as for insults…. I have to say that I and the rest of our team have never received so much unwarranted abuse as we had during the Brexit campaign. Apparently advocating a vote to leave means I am a racist, a xenophobe, a liar, a homophobe, completely stupid, naïve and ignorant, and the one that was hardest to bear – a FASCIST. You know – fascists – the thing our parents, grandparents or great grandparents gave 6 years of their lives or lost their lives fighting against…. That’s the one that really got me. One woman even phoned the police just because she didn’t agree with us – luckily the Police seemed to feel otherwise.
But I would do it all again. And again, and again and again. Until we save our country and our democracy. I know I’m a latecomer – only joining the fight 3 years ago – but once on board I have never looked back. And I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to try and reverse the mess that the EU has inflicted on us. And to meet so many wonderful people who all feel the same.
So, back to George Soros…. the thing that has shocked me most is the disgusting way in which the Remainers have tried every which way to reverse the vote, to delay it, to smear the Leave voters and to scupper democracy. Not all of them of course, many decent Remainers accept the result and want democracy to be enacted. But of course, they are not the ones given airtime by the BBC and supported by celebrities who now think they get to decide what we should think and do – the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch and Lily Allen for instance… The carry on has been sickening. And now this from George Soros, who has today revealed a new plan for a 2nd Referendum – not just talking about it but a plan to make it happen.
So, George Soros, Nick Clegg, Anna Soubry, Tony Blair, Diane Abbott, John Major and all of the politicians who think they have the right to ignore or change the democratic vote of the people who put them in power, it seems you are not going to stop until you get what you want – to remain in the EU. Democracy is not a democracy unless it’s the result you wanted, apparently.
But we are not going to give in. We may not have as much money or power, but we do have a voice, feet to march and hands to leaflet, and patriotic hearts.
We, the people, have spoken, and we, the people, will fight again.
