It could almost have been called a bit naff to start with but we do naff well:
The symbolism was simply dripping. And when Dunkirk appeared to have been re-enacted, one had to smile – Leave was going to milk this one:
Most impressive sight actually. And that contrasted with the pathos and amateurishness of the dear little putt-putt boats:
All jolly good fun, Nige was having ale and kippers on his boat, they were to tie up near Westminster, make a few speeches and that would have been that.
But as we’ve seen before, Remain can always snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and this time it was in the form of photo-ops, particularly that of globalist shill Geldof on his mega-expensive Yacht, with all his champagne swilling guests.
And what did our Bob do? Well, as we know now, he stuck up two fingers at the fishermen. Now you know and I know he actually stuck them up at Nigel and Leave/Go/Out but the photo-op was just too much:
Then his ocean liner was surrounded by boats such as this:
… and we were all creasing ourselves as it hit Twitter and other social media. I myself made full mileage of it, as Julia knows. But like a gift which keeps giving, the photo-ops continued:
And Remain had made a very great mistake. As some wrote, Leave had organized a quite naff event and could easily have fallen flat on their face. Geldof’s and Charlotte Church’s intervention turned it into a battle royal, a naval battle no less, in the shadow of Tower Bridge. You could not have bought so much fun.
Right slap bang near Westminster. As I tweeted, Geldof has now almost got Leave across the line singlehandedly. Not quite yet, let’s not think that and there may well be egg on our faces and tragedy for this land but still … weren’t arf bad, eh?
