On Drug Testing and the Coming Welfare Card By Bruce Bennett

     Here is an update on the laws that will make drug testing mandatory for all politicians, sorry, people on welfare, like me. As well, things are well advanced for a cashless debit card, part of the coming cashless society, that will constrain your welfare money and prevent you spending it on booze and drugs. Does that sound like a good idea? Is it fair given how the rest of the population runs on booze and drugs? Well, let me put the opposing view.

     At present, as part of the Great Replacement, white men like me are docking themselves in record numbers. Even the New York Times, who would never consider such a thing as a Great, or even small, replacement, has addressed the suicide/drug crisis as a deep spiritual crisis of the times:

Black “Racism” in South Africa: Libtards Very Quiet on This One By “Jammers” Reed

     The liberal press has reported on this, but the philosophical significance of the South African “racist” riots, is never detailed, for how could it be since it refutes their entire world view? Still, the bare facts are reported:
  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/05/world/africa/south-africa-xenophobia-riots.html
  https://www.economist.com/middle-east-and-africa/2019/09/09/xenophobic-violence-flares-in-south-africa

“South Africa is facing a backlash after rioters in and around Johannesburg targeted immigrants from other African countries this week, torching their shops and leading to at least 10 deaths. Now, angry citizens and governments across the continent are lashing out at South Africa and its businesses, denouncing what they call “xenophobia.” Africans across the continent once rallied behind South Africans in their struggle to defeat the apartheid government, which was finally replaced in elections held 25 years ago. Now, some Africans find themselves in the unfamiliar position of protesting the actions of the same communities in South Africa that they once stood with in solidarity. “The only time we’ve seen this type of cooperation of African countries in terms of backlash,” said Tunde Leye, a partner at the Nigerian political research firm SBM Intelligence, “was in terms of support of the anti-apartheid movement.” Anti-immigrant sentiment is a longstanding issue in South Africa, where the legacies of colonialism and apartheid run deep, and a political shift has not delivered meaningful change to many poor South Africans. Immigrants from countries like Nigeria, Mozambique, Somalia and Zimbabwe are often regarded by South Africans as competitors for jobs and social services. In South Africa, attacks on foreigners have become common, and they surged beginning Sunday when rioters stormed neighborhoods in and around Johannesburg, lighting fires and breaking into shops.”

Enforced Inceldom and Malignant Hypergamy By Mrs Vera West

     As the New York Times has recently discussed, the West is facing a profound spiritual crisis where high suicides and a drug epidemic, linked with crime and social breakdown, are indicators of vast social anomie and alienation. This is especially impacting upon men who have had their traditional roles undermined. And it goes so deep that even sexual practices have become reduced to a minimum, or are non-existent for some men, the incels, involuntary celibates. The Dissent Right sites like to slam these young men, but sober consideration would reveal that many Middle Eastern terrorists also fall into this category, and having nothing left to lose, or no hope of gain, are willing to embrace death, something the comfortable internet writers would shiver at the thought of, from the safety of their mom’s basements.
  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/07/opinion/sunday/the-age-of-american-despair.html

     Once, men who were not alphas, but ordinary blokes, could hope to get some reasonable woman, but now, empowered females are fully pursuing hypergamy, seeking higher level mates, meaning that a large segment of the male population will miss out on having a partner. This is discussed in a book by F. Roger Devlin, Sexual Utopia in Power, (2015), and some recent comments have been made at Affirmative Right.com:

Letter to The Editor - All benefits that our British heritage bequeathed to us

To The Age        Alex Njoo has used regrettably insulting language in describing Australia as "a white blot in a brown sea" (13/9). It is certainly true that our nation was founded, essentially, by whites, to whom we should be permanently grateful; but it has, especially since World War Two, welcomed into its citizenry many people who are not whites. Thus it is not true that "this fundamentally British colony has not divorced itself from its origins." On the contrary, it is moving too quickly and thoughtlessly away from them, misguided by an increasingly anti-traditional elite backed by its socialist apparatchiks. At grave risk are liberty before the law, free speech, religious freedom and the integrity of government - all benefits that our British heritage bequeathed to us.

Universities …Aaaaaaaaaaah!!!!!!! By James Reed

     Just to bring you up to date on the wild and woolly world of university litigation, truly exhilarating stuff, like mountain climbing:
  https://www.theaustralian.com.au/higher-education/james-cook-university-ordered-to-pay-peter-ridd-12m-for-unlawful-dismissal/news-story/a9a00f937b78d90520df00bccf78f94d?utm_source=The%20Australian&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=editorial&utm_content=TodaySHeadlines

“James Cook University has been ordered to pay reef scientist Peter Ridd $1.2 million for unlawfully dismissing him after he publicly criticised the institution’s climate change science. Federal Circuit Court Justice Salvatore Vasta on Friday handed down the penalty following hearings earlier this year. He ordered the Townsville university to pay Dr Ridd $1,094,214.47 as compensation for past and future economic loss because of the unlawful sacking, as well as general compensation for more than “three years of unfair treatment”. JCU will have to pay a further $125,000 as a way of penalty. The judge lambasted the university, saying it had “failed to respect (Dr Ridd’s) rights to intellectual freedom”. The physics professor, who specialised in marine environments and worked at JCU for 30 years, on Friday lamented the ugly affair, saying it was “a fight that should never have started in the first place”. “I have worked for 35 years on the Great Barrier Reef, and my genuinely held belief is that there are systemic quality assurance problems at Great Barrier Reef science institutions,” he said. “I had a right, a duty, to say this. “JCU have still not accepted this fundamental right despite the importance of the debate to the north Queensland region.”

Our Beloved, Utterly Delightful, Universities … Where Standards are “Lower”! By James Reed

     After the cheating/plagiarism issue, we come to the obvious, that some universities are … well … let the papers say it shall we?
  https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/adelaide-university-is-far-financially-too-reliant-on-chinese-students-centre-for-independent-studies-report-warns/news-story/77ac7a11b63a361cd80efd7686514c60
  https://www.cis.org.au/app/uploads/2019/08/ap5.pdf?

“Adelaide University is one of the most overexposed institutions to the Chinese student market in the English-speaking world, putting it at great financial risk from any downturn, a report warns. A Centre for Independent Studies report lists Adelaide among seven “elite” Australian universities with “extraordinary levels of exposure” to the Chinese “cash cow”. It says Chinese nationals account for 53.8 per cent of Adelaide’s international students and 15.8 per cent of all its enrolments. Income from Chinese students was 13 per cent of Adelaide’s total revenue in 2017 – $120 million out of $929 million. All international students were worth $204 million to the uni that year. From 2001-17, Adelaide grew its overseas student numbers by 322 per cent, compared to 49 per cent for domestic students. Its foreign student numbers are up 27 per cent this year alone, to more than 10,000. The report says the biggest financial risk factors are a Chinese recession, China introducing tighter currency controls on what its citizens can spend on foreign education, or adverse movements in exchange rates. It says small percentage declines in Chinese enrolments could cause “significant financial hardship” to universities, while large declines would be “catastrophic”. The bad news for taxpayers is that, like banks, universities are “too big to fail” and would need government bailouts, according to the report. Adelaide vice-chancellor Peter Rathjen has previously blamed government funding woes for universities being “addicted” to foreign student revenue. But the report rejects that argument, noting the biggest proportional rises in foreign student were in periods of funding increases. Adelaide and UniSA bosses this week spoke of the need to “diversify” foreign student intake to reduce risk, but the report says that is “doomed to fail” because India is too poor and other markets too small. The report says unis “routinely compromise” entry standards for foreign students via foundation courses, but Adelaide said its standards were the same regardless of the pathway. The uni said foreign students’ contribution to SA was more than economic.’’

International Students and Contract Cheating By James Reed

     Here is a story that one will probably not find at the American Renaissance site (“Asians are so much smarter than us”) ideology. University  cheating by the sacred international students is at epidemic levels, and has been for some time. So, the government, scared that there could be an erosion of the ultra-sacred, immaculate international student money, is taking action against those marketing student essays and assignments, for it has been estimated that over half on international students cheat by various forms of plagiarism:
  https://www.macrobusiness.com.au/2019/05/half-international-students-accused-plagiarism/

“LINTON BESSER: At Sydney University, international students now make up a quarter of all enrolments. At other universities like RMIT in Melbourne, they’re almost 50 per cent of the cohort. With thousands of students often struggling with English, the pressure to pass is helping to fuel a black market… ZENA O’CONNOR: I’m, I’m staggered by the increase in plagiarism. Ah, to start with: in my experience, it was a very small proportion – you know, maybe two, three, four per cent. I would peg it now at being much, much higher: well over 50 per cent. LINTON BESSER: The academics who have spoken out tonight are not alone in their concerns. In our research for this program, we spoke with scores of academics around Australia. The vast majority had witnessed or personally experienced the pressure to ignore plagiarism and to pass weak students. Multiple other reports have similarly documented widespread cheating by international students across Australia’s universities. For example, in 2014, Chinese students were embroiled in a large-scale ghost-writing scandal, facilitated by universities welcoming international students who whistleblowing academics labelled “functionally illiterate”. In 2015, the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) demanded universities curb cheating by international students after 70 students from the universities of Newcastle and Sydney, and several other major universities, were caught up in a cheating racket. An ABC investigation last year reported that “English language standards are often too low or can be sidestepped via loopholes, and that students are often put in stressful classroom situations that can lead to cheating”. In January, international student associations called for greater regulation of overseas migration agents amid widespread cheating on English tests to gain access to Australian universities. And following last week’s Four Corners expose, domestic students at Murdoch University claimed that “some international students were trying to circumvent the language gap by plagiarising their assignments or contracting outside sources for help”.”

Google Suppressing Climate Critiques By Chris Knight

     Big Tech suppression continues, and what should we expect, since that is what they are in the business to do, squash the deplorables and support globalist ideology. Not only have we seen race material, immigration and pro-health material censored, then all conservative approaches, but now, climate change critique as well goes under the chop:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-09-08-google-discriminates-against-anyone-who-challenges-climate-change.html
  https://www.capitolhilloutsider.com/google-discriminates-against-conservatives-and-climate-skeptics/

“Several months ago, Google quietly released a 32-page white paper, “How Google Fights Disinformation.” That sound good. The problem is that Google not only controls a whopping 92.2% of all online searches. It is a decidedly left-wing outfit, which views things like skepticism of climate alarmism, and conservative views generally, as “disinformation.” The white paper explains how Google’s search and news algorithms operate, to suppress what Google considers disinformation and wants to keep out of educational and public discussions. The algorithms clearly favor liberal content when displaying search results. Generally speaking, they rank and present search results based on the use of so-called “authoritative sources.” The problem is, these sources are mostly “mainstream” media, which are almost entirely liberal. Google’s algorithmic definition of “authoritative” makes liberals the voice of authority. Bigger is better, and the liberals have the most and biggest news outlets. The algorithms are very complex, but the basic idea is that the more other websites link to you, the greater your authority. It is like saying a newspaper with more subscribers is more trustworthy than one with fewer subscribers. This actually makes no sense, but that is how it works with the news and in other domains. Popularity is not authority, but the algorithm is designed to see it that way. This explains why the first page of search results for breaking news almost always consists of links to liberal outlets. There is absolutely no balance with conservative news sources. Given that roughly half of Americans are conservatives, Google’s liberal news bias is truly reprehensible.

A Reply to Jack Donovan: Time to Smell the Napalm in the Morning By John Steele

     Jack Donovan has done important work in defending the traditional concept of masculinity, as well as publishing many thoughtful essays. His recent essay, and he does not publish all that much nowadays is, “The Bill of Rights is What Matters Now.” This is a superficial piece.
  https://affirmativeright.blogspot.com/2019/09/the-bill-of-rights-is-what-matters-now.html

“I’m skeptical of the view that we’re living in some kind of “end time” or cyclical inversion of all righteous values. People have always carried signs saying “the end is near.” Sometimes it is, and sometimes it isn’t. Our golden perception of the past is colored by its most successful myth-makers. I’ve heard that my secret “master plan” is Evolian but the truth is that I’m tired of hearing about the Kali Yuga from fans of that time-traveling love child of Jordan Peterson and Dr. Strange. Maybe it’s the end of some grand historic cycle. Maybe it isn’t. Maybe it gets better. Maybe it gets much, much worse. …”

Christmas is Cancelled: Thanks to Diversity and Multiculturalism! By Paul Walker

“A proposal to water down Christmas festivities has been met with strong backlash. The City of Perth's Cultural Development Plan promises to deliver a Christmas season that is 'representative and inclusive of city's multicultural community'. Residents have taken to social media to express their outrage over the idea, with many claiming the council is going too far. 'This is just madness in my opinion. I'd love a Christmas as Christmassy as it can get,' one man wrote. 'PC gone mad,' wrote another. 'Absolutely what a great idea the world needs less joy throughout the year we have too much good news, community spirit love and happiness,' another wrote. However, one man thought it was a good idea. 'It'll still be festive guys, just more broad and inclusive,' the man wrote. Chief Commissioner Andrew Hammond said the council's current holiday-season celebrations did not acknowledge or create a sense of belonging for non-Christians. 'We're not about to change Christmas celebrations. We're just taking a common sense approach that about 50 per cent of people are Christians and about 50 per cent are not,' he told 9 news. 'While Christianity is an important part of Perth's cultural identity (46 per cent of Greater Perth demographic), the City of Perth's current holiday-season celebrations, which include a nativity scene at Council House, do not fully acknowledge or create a sense of belonging for the remaining 54 per cent, including 32 per cent who have no religion at all,' the plan states. The council has consulted a number of community groups about its plan, it said.”

Let it Bleed: All You Need is … Not Love but Knife-Proof Armour! (Beatle Story to Follow) By Richard Miller

     We are no fans of the Beatles here, that Left-wing group from the 1960s that helped get many of these cultural agendas going. But it is ironic that one of Paul McCartney’s grandsons got robbed in knife-saturated minority White London:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7412281/Paul-McCartney-reveals-grandson-robbed-knifepoint-London-phone-taken.html

“Sir Paul McCartney has revealed one of his grandsons was mugged at knifepoint in London and said it is 'scary' how much knife crime there is at the moment. The former Beatle, 77, did not identify which grandson had their phone stolen in the attack but advised not to react if a knife is pulled on you. The grandfather of eight aged between seven and 20 said the episode reminded him of when he was attacked while growing up in Liverpool. 'I said: "No, no, no, no! The guy had a knife and you don't know, the guy might be able to use that knife". So it is scary these days.' It comes amid a crime wave in London which has seen 92 murders this year as politicians and police struggle to deal with knife crime in what has been labelled 'Wild West' Britain. The legendary singer-songwriter then recalled an incident from his youth when four men crowded around him and stole his watch.”

Letter to The Editor - Defending intellectual freedom and allowing the expression of "uncomfortable views"

To The Australian        Nick Cater is correct to describe Brexit as "the pressing political issue of the day" for Britain ("Deserters help a resolute Boris", 11/9). This is because the result of the current struggle will determine whether for the foreseeable future free speech is returned to the British (by their escape from the jurisdiction of the Kafkaesque European Court of Human Rights) and whether their nation regains full sovereignty. What lover of freedom wants his or her people to be ruled by a supra-national, bureaucratic tyranny? In this context Janet Albrechtsen is right ("The prime minister cannot be in two minds about 18C") to urge our own government to be more proactive on defending intellectual freedom and allowing the expression of "uncomfortable views" so long as physical harm is not being clearly threatened.

DARPA Getting Down and Dirty By Chris Knight

     More on the US military industrial complex getting down and dirty on censoring free thought. If you thought that Big Tech was totalitarian, then you have not seen anything yet! These guys intend to play hard ball … hell, they play with grenades, bombs and nuclear missiles! Even the name “DARPA’ sond bad, like out of some sci fi horror genre:
  https://www.rt.com/usa/467836-darpa-deepfakes-disinfo-malicious-dissent/

“The Pentagon has unveiled an initiative to fight ‘large-scale, automated disinformation attacks’ by unearthing deep-fakes and other polarizing content – with the eventual goal of rooting out so-called ‘malicious intent’ entirely. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is seeking software capable of churning through a test set of half a million news stories, photos, and audio/video clips to target and neutralize potentially viral information before it spreads. In DARPA jargon, the aim is to “automatically detect, attribute, and characterize falsified multi-modal media to defend against large-scale, automated disinformation attacks.”  “Polarizing viral content,” however, includes inflammatory truths, and the program’s ultimate goal seems to be to stamp out dissent. The Semantic Forensics program will scan news stories and social media posts with a barrage of algorithms in the hope of identifying inconsistencies that could mark a story as fake. The desired program will not just identify a meme as inauthentic – it will identify the source of that meme, the alleged intent behind it, and predict the impact of its spread. To hear them tell it, the Pentagon just wants to even the playing field between the ‘good guys’ – the fake-hunters pursuing the cause of truth in media – and the ‘bad guys’ sowing discord one slowed-down Nancy Pelosi speech at a time. But the Pentagon’s targets aren’t limited to deepfakes, the bogeyman-of-the-month being used to justify this unprecedented military intrusion into the social media and news realm, or fake news at all. If the program is successful after four years of trials, it will be expanded to target all “malicious intent” – a possibility that should send chills down the spine of any journalist who’s ever disagreed with the establishment narrative.”

Battle of the Century: Man of Muscle vs Well … Macron By John Steele

     Take the globalist elites on their own, as physical specimens, and they are revealed as puny, most being incapable of personal survival without their hired protection. It is thus highly amusing to see one of the great martial artists of the world, Renzo Gracie, wanting to fight in the octagon French president Macron. Of course, this can never happen, Macron has no death wish, and unarmed there is nothing he could do to stop a Gracie. The fight would be the quickest in history, over in seconds.
  https://www.rt.com/news/467830-brazilian-gracie-choke-macron/

“After some verbal combat between Jair Bolsonaro and Emmanuel Macron, Brazil’s tourism ambassador – MMA fighter Renzo Gracie – upped the ante, calling the French leader a “clown” and threatening to choke him. Diplomacy in 2019. To recap, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro recently earned the scorn of French President Emmanuel Macron for mocking Macron’s 66-year-old wife Brigitte on Facebook. Macron had earlier accused Bolsonaro of reneging on his commitments to the environment, as G7 leaders discussed wildfires burning in the Amazon rainforest. Bolsonaro’s comments, Macron said, were “extraordinarily rude,” and “sad.” Though the tiff seemed over, Bolsonaro was still miffed at the G7’s offer of a $22 million “colonial” aid package to fight the fires, which, he pointed out, burn every year in the Amazon and are being handled by Brazilian authorities. However, Gracie turned things up several notches over the weekend, in a diplomatic exchange that would put the trash talk of any UFC fighter or bare-knuckle boxer to shame. “The only fire going on is the fire inside Brazilian hearts and our president’s heart, you clown,” Gracie thundered in a Twitter video addressed to Macron, who he oh-so-cleverly rebranded “micron.”“Come over here, you’ll be caught by the neck, that chicken neck. You don’t fool me,” his rant continued. After the video was posted, Brazilian reporter Adriano Wilkson called Gracie up. If he was expecting a more measured statement from the newly appointed tourism ambassador, he was left disappointed. “Of course a bunch of people will be scared, they’ll think I called him chicken because I was questioning his manhood, but I’ve seen plenty of gay men who are more manly than this imbecile,” Gracie said, before reigniting the discussion on Brigitte Macron’s looks for good measure. “I’ll ask you a question. Is she ugly or pretty? Would you hook up with her?...The fact that he sleeps with a dragon doesn’t make him a fire expert. She’s ugly, man.”

Attack of the Astonishing, the Amazing, Meth Zombies! By John Steele

  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7424545/Inside-Queensland-town-seen-350-cent-rise-crime.html?ico=pushly-notifcation-small

“A once quiet town in rural Queensland has become a haven for criminals - and local residents claim a devastating ice epidemic is to blame. Finch Hatton – a sleepy town in the Mackay Region – has seen a 350 per cent spike in crime in the past six years. Residents are even more on edge after a number of businesses were targeted by thieves, Finch Hatton General Store manager Ashley Jones told Daily Mail Australia. There has been an increase in the number of drug-related arrests in the Finch Hatton division since 2003, Queensland Crime Statistics show. There were 43 drug-related arrests made last year alone - the highest arrest rate in 16 years. Drug offences made up about one-third of all offences in 2018. However, Mackay Crime Prevention Unit Sergeant Nigel Dalton said the increase was due to police takin a more proactive approach rather than an increase in drug-use. 'From the drug detectives' point of view, it's business as usual.'”

It Can Happen Here Too! By Mrs Vera West

     A South African doctor told a pregnant woman that the foetus is human and that abortion therefore would kill it. He gets sacked. It could happen here in Australia just as easily. But, if the doctor sang the praises of abortion, why, nothing would happen. That is business as usual:
  https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/doctor-forbidden-to-practice-medicine-after-telling-patient-a-fetus-is-a-human

“August 30, 2019 (Society for the Protection of Unborn Children) — A South African doctor is facing charges of unprofessional conduct after telling a woman scientific facts about unborn children. According to Sowetan Live, Jacques de Vos allegedly told a patient that "a foetus is a human" and claimed that abortion kills a human. After de Vos stated these scientific facts, his employment was terminated and he was prohibited from practising medicine. De Vos is now facing four charges of unprofessional conduct from the Health Professions Council of South Africa at an inquiry which has commenced this week. According to the report, de Vos allegedly "infringed" the patient's "autonomy with his anti-abortion utterances." "Based On Ideology, Not Scientific Fact" SPUC Education and Research Director, Dr Anthony McCarthy described the charges as "based on ideology, not scientific fact." Dr McCarthy said: "From a scientific point of view, the question of when a new human life begins is relatively uncontroversial. Human life begins at fertilisation as a single cell. Conception marks a change from cells produced by the father and mother, to a cell with a complete human genome that constitutes a new human being." He continued: "The unborn life in the womb is undoubtedly human, and the evidence for this is overwhelming. As the parents are human — belonging to the species Homo sapiens — and the embryo is oriented to growing up just like them, the new living being is also human. That new life is obviously both very young and very small, but is no less human than we are now. "From a scientific and medical standpoint, the facts stated by Jacques de Vos are undoubtedly true."

Beyond 1984: Thought Crimes: Britain to Punish You Even Before the “Crime” is Committed! By Richard Miller

     Whoaha! Britain is fast moving ahead of even Sweden in the totalitarian stakes. The elites no doubt have armies of eager researchers working 24/7 to come up with ever more anarchotyranny:
  https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/274810/uk-you-could-soon-be-arrested-crimes-you-havent-robert-spencer

“Philip K. Dick’s story “The Minority Report,” made into a movie in 2002 directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Cruise, takes us to a nightmarish Washington, DC, in the year 2054, where police arrest people based on crimes that psychics say they’re going to commit in the future. That dystopia could come to Britain 35 years early if the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change gets its way. According to the Guardian, the Institute has recommended that “a new law allowing for hate groups to be designated and punished before they turn to violence is needed in order to tackle far-right extremists.” “Before they turn to violence” — that is, even if there is no indication that they will ever be violent. The Guardian notes that the authors of Narratives of Hate: The Spectrum of Far-Right Worldviews in the UK, the Tony Blair Institute report calling for this, “acknowledge that the issue of linking violent and nonviolent extremism is contentious and steps would need to be taken to protect free speech.” That’s window dressing meant to deceive the public into complacency. There is no way to criminalize certain opinions while protecting the freedom of speech. The Guardian continues: “The law…would designate hate groups as organisations that spread intolerance and antipathy towards people of a different race, religion, gender or nationality, the report said.”

Letter to The Editor - They deserve to lose

To The Australian        Although I support Brexit 100%, I'm not sure it is accurate of Jennifer Oriel to state that "no one can deny that Brexit represents the will of the British people" ("Born-to-rule Remainers ignoring will of the people", 9/9). It certainly represents a majority in the 2016 referendum and may represent a majority of Britons today; but a large number of UK voters were and are against it. Thus we have the tragedy of a nation deeply divided on a very great constitutional issue. However, the first responsibility for the present chaotic situation undoubtedly rests with elements in the Remain camp including various powerful elites, through their failure to accept a majority preference. They deserve to lose. Let us hope they do, and without violence.

Letter to The Editor - Socialist fanatics and most of the Establishment

To The Age        Nicole Hemmer is wrong to stigmatise current UK politics as "a bigger farce" ("Fiascos part of a wider unravelling", 9/9). It is much more serious than that and looks like an impending tragedy, with neither side (Leave and Remain) willing to accept defeat, and the nation split almost fifty-fifty on which option should win. The blame for this, however, lies plainly with the Remain lobby, which contains starry-eyed idealists, socialist fanatics and most of the Establishment. In failing to accept the result of the 2016 referendum, these people have trashed both democracy and fair play.
