Leave has the better image overall

It’s unfortunate or fortunate, depending on your view, that the public image of Leave is JRM and Andrea J, while that of Remain is Soubry and Miller.

The thoroughly unpleasant Soubry is doing great things for Leave.

It’s the apoplectically rabid way Remain act, the state’s dirty tricks and Deep State heavyhandedness along with it which are turning people off [surveyed 15% increase in Leave a few days back], coupled with Antifa tactics [not directly linked to this issue but it’s all association in people’s minds, innit?], whilst Leavists are coming across as brave resigners from sinecures*, a young woman and child [blonde and pretty too] secretly attacked behind the scenes by the whips.

On the negative side for Leave, Gove and Fox come over badly but thank goodness have now been shown to be closet Remoaners, Boris should also come over badly for his porkies but he’s a teflon coated opportunist and then, outside the party, Farage is both ways in reputation, Arron Banks is quite liked and appears to be targetted currently by the state forces of evil.

Despite the MSM blanket ban on all Leave voices bar JRM’s [Remain’s least worst fallback option, as distinct from “that ghastly man” Farage], Leave spokespeople have shown themselves to be adept, which is not difficult all they are doing is shout for extant govt policy policy and the Mansion House speech. A bit too easy actually.

Remain are pushing it uphill, wallowing in the mire of the democratic deficit – the stacked BBC audiences and intolerant tone of the presenters have been a godsend for Leave – plus the Guianan woman and tricky dicky lawyers and wealth behind her. There’s no white knight in shining armour for them – wot, Ken Clarke?

Even Leave’s John Redwood is coming out of it looking good.  There are also peripheral [to Pure Brexit] factors – the Donald, Tommy and free speech, AMW touching on immigration, the elephant in the room.

And the dramatic, patriotic images are Leave’s Nigel and Kate Hoey steaming up the Thames, redolent of Britain’s naval history – it all adds to the picture. The plucky little fishing boat with the Leave flag fluttering – all good stuff.

And what do Remain have to counter that? Jo Cox, a double-edged sword.

Plus there seems brainpower on the Leave side, the articulate ability to take down idiots like, say, Greening who are parrotting narrative and who then get caught out not having been fed the next bit.

If I wanted to, I could make a far better case for Remoan, avoiding the pitfalls. But this shower of tossers seems incapable. So be it.

    It’s Kate Hoey, but hey, we get the point. Curiously to add to that picture of plucky fisherman sailing up the Thames was the memory of that odious reptile Geldof on a hired Gin Palace with all his Labour/socialist mates quaffing champagne and flicking V signs at the working class fishermen – nice.

    Perception is everything.

    The crowing Radio 4 did this morning over the Electoral Commission result was revolting. No reference to vote stay chained diong the exact same thing, about the Muslim corruption of Tower Hamlets.. you could almost see the BBC presenter rubbing their hands together with glee at the hope that finally the great and mighty state will overcome the idiot proles decision.

      If they’re going to have post-mortem analysis of referendum finances, maybe it’s time they reviewed the financing of the ‘Stay In’ campaign in the 1975 EEC Referendum.

      It is widely acknowledged that substantial funding was provided by the CIA, to help ensure that the USA’s key ‘agent’ Britain stayed inside the EEC in order to monitor/affect/influence European developments in the continuing Cold War. And that wasn’t even British money, neither was it reported under any electoral funding transparency, not has it ever been formally admitted.

      The difference is the result – if you get the ‘wrong’ answer, they get the drains up to look for any potential villainy anywhere but, if you get the ‘right’ answer, then nothing happens, even though the villainy may be dramatically worse.

      If anyone bothers to check the ‘Guido’ website on the EuroGuido sector, you might read that the Commission “had sufficient evidence….draw conclusions without speaking to them”


      If the Govt. survives, and trundles onwards, I reckon a short sharp inspection of the Electoral Commission’s political affiliations may be in order.

    James have you ever heard of this website? Have you seen this article? It makes interesting reading, but I wonder if it is true? If it is, it would explain a lot of what happened before during and after President Trump’s election.

    Given that the UK and US states are so closely connected, it might also give some explanation of what is happening to our exit from the EU, particularly having a known communist secretly trying to prevent us leaving and possibly other communists working within our state apparatus to destroy our country.

    Soubry’s repeated insane behaviour and ad-hom attacks are wonderful for boosting Leave support

    Maybot lies and her back-stabbing of DD has, per polls:

    – increased leave support
    – increased no-deal support
    – destroyed Conservative support now 6% behind Labour

    May’s latest skulduggery – Close parliament

    May’s decision improves her prospects of making it through to the summer break without a leadership challenge. On Monday night, it emerged that No 10 had proposed bringing forward the summer recess to Thursday, to reduce the time available for Conservative MPs to hold a confidence vote if one were to be called, although Labour and some Tory MPs indicated they were considering voting against any attempt to impose an early holiday.

    Brave Theresa ran away.
    Bravely ran away away.
    When danger reared it’s ugly head,
    She bravely turned her tail and fled.
    Yes, brave Theresa turned about
    And gallantly she chickened out.
    Swiftly taking to her feet,
    She beat a very brave retreat.
    Bravest of the brave, Theresa May

    This just shows the contempt for democracy that these people have when their schemes are thwarted. We rail at the anti-democratic nature of the EU but this is just as bad.

    The next General Election is going to be an interesting time, in the Chinese sense, since this destroys any lingering thought that the Tories had any honour, apart from JRM and a few others.
