Yesterday saw an alleged 100,000 people march through central London demanding that there must be a further referendum on whether the UK should leave the EU.
Media coverage of this public demonstration has been predictably enthusiastic and presented in such a way as to try and validate the marchers central contention that Brexit just cannot be allowed to happen. The uniform “100,000” turn-out number has been repeated ad nauseum by all media channels and the suggestion is that this is just so massive a number that it simply cannot be ignored.
Many of us remember at least 300,000 people marching through London to support Rural rights. They were completely ignored. We also remember an estimated 1 MILLION people marching through London against the War in Iraq. They were completely ignored. Why on earth would anyone take notice of this paltry demonstration of hard core Remainers? Only those from the Diane Abbott school of mathematics could conclude 100,000 is greater import than 1,000,000!
It’s worth examining the arguments put forward by some of the demonstrators who used dance and placards to persuade us to the merits of their cause. Here is one chap who equates the democratically expressed will of the British people with that of…the Nazis. Yes, Brexit = Nazism through the unhinged prism of a hard core Remainer.
Then there was this sophisticated argument to Remain. Again it is an insight into a bizarrely ‘detached from reality’ world that these hard core Remainer extremists inhabit.

It reminded me of this curious display of EU fervour from another disciple of hard core Remain.

Interpretative dance as a vehicle to change our minds on Brexit is truly novel but I can’t say it has worked.
Then we see this poor young chap who feels his future has been taken – before it has started.
Looking at the smiling faces of the prominent Remainers at the March, there is a striking lack of the much vaunted “diversity” they drone on about. Rarely have I seen so many white faces in London.
That’s because this is smug middle class metropolitan elitist suburbia virtue signalling for all it is worth. Where will they get their Nannies and gardeners from if we gain back control of our borders?
100,000 of this deranged mob say “No to Brexit”
Fine. 17, 410, 742 people said YES to Brexit.
But the UK political and media establishment, backed by the EU, support these useful fools as their march of the damned pollutes central London. They are simply unable to accept defeat. They seek to subvert democracy and in the case of one Labour MP they are patently unable to distinguish what democracy actually is.

You cannot “believe in democracy” and then demand the result of the biggest expression of the democratic process in British history be overturned! The People did vote – on Poor Lammy is unable, or unwilling, to see that.
History will judge this public demonstration as akin to a death spasm of a dying cult. Only the most devout, the most invested of EU worshippers are unable to appreciate that what they are really demonstrating against is…reality!
