The attempts by some in the Remain camp to force a second referendum is hardly news. To a degree this was to be expected, after all I doubt everyone in the Leave campaign would have accepted the vote if it had gone the other way. Fortunately most of us believe democracy is too precious a thing to place in harm’s way and I am very encouraged by the way that the ‘soft’ Remain vote are working to achieve a consensus with the soft side of Brexit.
So if I am generally pleased with the way things are going why I am writing about a second referendum? Well it is because of who has popped up and offered himself as the leader for this insurgency against democracy, the one and only Tony Blair.
Tony Blair is the reason I no longer vote for Labour, to my mind Tony Blair hijacked the party and destroyed its socialist roots. Under his leadership, Labour became incredibly successful at winning elections but it sold its soul to do so. When you have senior people in the Labour party like Lord Mandelson making smug statements that they are comfortable around rich people, you start to get uncomfortable about their real motives. It was about the time of the Iraq War when the realisation hit me that all Labour had no interest in the working class – its sole interest was power.
I strongly feel that Labour, under Blair betrayed the working class of this country, Labour had no mandate from the people to inflict massive demographic change on them. Tony Blair just went ahead and did it and no one in the Labour party challenged it or tested the consequences of this policy.
The Iraq war I think provides a strong indicator of Tony Blair’s agenda, I struggle to think of a Labour leader from the past who would have taken us to war with so little reason. I would argue that the Iraq War was a key feature in the breakdown in trust between the people and Westminster, I am not one given to conspiracy theories but it is very difficult to resist the notion that some unseen agents influenced Tony Blair’s decision to go to war.
Since then of course we have had the Chilcot report, a report that I think surprised most people in its criticism of Tony Blair, I do not think I was alone in expecting a whitewash.
So here’s the thing with Tony Blair, any normal human being would have hidden away in shame, a normal human being would have by now understood the sheer anger at his handling of the whole affair. For a brief period I thought he was indeed normal, he made an apology and I expected him to disappear and ply his trade as a key note speaker at conferences for washing machine salesmen.
Yet no, here is, agitating against Brexit, lobbying for a second referendum – his argument, well people are allowed to change their minds.
His ego and his hypocrisy seem to have no bounds. Is this the same Tony Blair that held more referenda under his leadership than any other Prime Minister? Are we now to ignore the Welsh vote for their own assembly? Maybe we should implement proportional representation despite the vote? How about Scottish Independence? Let’s ignore that one too and declare Alec Salmon the winner. Oh but hang on – we did vote to stay in the Common Market in 1974, his argument might unravel a bit if we overturn that bit of democracy.
So now here I am, Tony I have had enough of you, you are bad and dangerous. It seems to me that not content with almost wrecking your country through your unwanted social engineering policies you now seem to want to finish the job by subverting democracy and start a civil war.
What is it that motivates you? Are you just a narcissistic maniac – or is it that you are the front man for darker more sinister agents? I have no way of knowing – but I agree with you on one point, people are allowed to change their mind, I saw you as the Golden Boy of the Left. You promised so much and had such an opportunity to shape your country into a better future, instead you took us down a dark path, created for us a society unable to communicate or identify with itself. A world of fear, lies and terror is the one you helped create for me. A world where children are systematically abused and the perpetrators protected by the elite media, a world where what is wholesome and true is twisted and corrupted and the perverse and malign accepted as the new normal.
So I have indeed changed my mind, you are a menace and an ongoing threat to my way of life. It is time you were brought to trial to face a Judge to answer for the lives of service men and women whose lives you wasted and for the millions of Iraqis whose country you destroyed.
A long spell in prison seems to be the only way to shut you up.
