Let’s give into the mouth foaming of the remain horde and have a referendum that is a final “ALL IN” or “ALL OUT” one, on the proviso that if leave win again, we go hell bent on the WTO route backed by the entire country. IF remain win, we ditch the pound, join the Euro, abolish the house of lords, reduce the house of commons drastically, discard all our courts and laws and become fully fledged Europeans forever enslaved to this federal insanity. How about it you remain lot?

Can someone explain to Femi that the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is not “a nation”, as he so emphatically states.

Get the basics right and you have more chance of being taken seriously.

A second referendum with 2 options;

1.) Stay (as in the first referendum)


2.) An emasculating deal

gives legal form and permanence to the present divisions, with the majority usurped. We will then have, not a country, but rather, 2 sides preparing to settle by other means. Those who call us stupid will have their chance to put that to the test.

Well done Tom for not allowing yourself to be drawn into a downward discussion of Boris Johnson on a personal level. You very succinctly described how he is being pulled all over the place, and how that suggests a man incapable of being decisive.

The Conservative Party conference, 29th of September this year, looks interesting, if only for the spectacle of the membership being chucked out in an all out attempt to close down debate.

Off-screen are 19 of Femi’s American handlers.
