I think I’ve heard it all now, yet another celebrity has made a grovelling and embarassing apology to Europe for leaving the EU, not just for himself or even his own profession, but on behalf of the British people. Patrick Stewart may be revered in his chosen career, but has neither the right or any obligation to apologise for a whole country. There does seem to be some confusion amongst the acting profession that we are leaving Europe, bit difficult seeing as how the gap across the channel is as far as I am aware not radically changed. They seem to have a problem with the concept of a continent as opposed to a self serving, corrupt and fascistic organisation whose only purposes seem to be the overthrow of the Nation state and propping up the failing Euro regardless of the damaging implications for its member states.
What I find most hypocritical about the general Luvvies stance against BREXIT is the fact that most choose to live and work in the USA, a country where Nationalism is not just an idea, but a way of life. Meanwhile the liberal progressives who seem so prevalent amongst the financiers of the movie industry and claim to be fighting the system are the major voice to maintain the Status Quo that favours big business and entrenched politicians and are mindlessly followed by so many of the milennial/snowflake entitled generation both here and in the USA. Who all seem to embrace celebrity utterings rather than actually looking more closely for themselves, many of whom seem to believe that everything should come to them rather than having to work for it.
Then on top of that a Swedish MEP had the nerve to accuse Boris Johnson of Bad taste for refering to BREXIT as the Liberation of the UK from the EU.
Mrs Bildt, who is married to Sweden’s former Prime Minister Carl Bildt, said: “I would like to tell the foreign minister of the UK that the word liberation in the history of Europe has a very strong meaning.“In these challenging times talking about liberating Britain from the European Union is just bad taste.”
Appearing less than thrilled with the remark, Mr Johnson responded: “I say, come on. I have to say, I hesitate to accuse you of pomposity, but the word liberation clearly means … it’s etymologically equivalent to being freed.“And I’m afraid it’s an undeniable fact that we, the UK, has been unable to do, to run its own trade policy for 44 years.“We now have an opportunity to do exactly that. I think people should be very proud and very excited by that and that is exactly what we are.”Continuing, the former Mayor of London said the UK was fully within its rights to use to word ‘liberated’ talking about BREXIT, as he insisted Britons were finally regaining control from Brussels bigwigs.
He said: “And I want to reclaim the English language, if I may. There is absolutely no reason why I should not use the word ‘liberation’ to refer to our ability to take back control of our tariff schedules in Geneva and do our own free trade deals.
“And I’m sorry, but I’m going to disagree with you emphatically.”
All a bit rich coming from a Swede, a country that maintained a meticulous neutrality during the Second World War.
One of the EU’s BREXIT negotiators had the audacity to say that Sir Winston Churchill would have voted Remain – to stay in the European Union.
Two quotes by Churchill come to mind:
‘Britain could not be an ordinary member of a federal union limited to Europe in any period which can be…foreseen.’ – Winston Churchill
‘If you ask me to choose between Europe and the open sea, I choose the open sea.’ – Winston Churchill.
So perhaps yet one more thing the EU and it’s minions have got wrong.
