2019 Replay: Predicting a new “Class War”?

This was one of our first posts of 2019 which equated a new class war in the U.K. with the great Brexit divide. This class war isn’t segregating people into lower, middle, upper classes based on education, income, career. What I sensed was segregation between people who respected democracy and those who didn’t, people who acted superior to others from the silent majority who were branded as racist and fascist, and the segregation of people with power and great wealth from those who had neither. These were the battle lines that became hardened across the year as our parliament became a shambles, families were split and friendships destroyed ……. and none of these will be easy to “heal” as we are being asked to consider. It’s not going to be easy to forgive and forget what 17.4 million of us have had to put up with!
Here’s what we wrote in our post of January 21st a year ago:

Brexit is now a class war and the politicians and Remoaniacs just don’t get it! It’s not a class war along the old traditional lines, workers vs owners or even rich vs poor, it’s a new kind of class war based on Elites vs Plebs, or those who hate Britain vs those who love it.

Consider the words of George Orwell who famously wrote in his essay, The Lion and the Unicorn, that there’s a certain type of Englishman who loathes and despises his own country. He wrote about England, but it’s wider than that. In 1941, Orwell referred to these people as the “intelligentsia.” Today, you might more accurately refer to them as the “Remainer elite”.

“England is perhaps the only great country whose intellectuals are ashamed of their own nationality. In left-wing circles it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution, from horse racing to suet puddings. It is a strange fact, but it is unquestionably true that almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of standing to attention during “God save the King” than of stealing from a poor box.”

These are the people today who put themselves above the law, above the constitution, above a legal vote, above the majority. They are fuelled by a misguided sense of elitist superiority, a sense that they know better and what is good for the rest of us. THEY are the ones who have caused the Brexit process to be an omnishambles with their constant carping and shuttling back and forth to Brussels to brief the EU twassocks on how to stick it to us, or only printing stories in the MSM about how awful everything is, how Britain is ruined, how future generations will suffer ad infinitum. The list of these Elites is a long one, but to categorise them ….. the mainstream media especially BBC, Sky News, Ch4 News; so called celebrities such as Bob Geldof and Gary Lineker; ex prime ministers such as Tony Bliar and John Major; existing politicians including leaders of some parties such as Vince Cable, Nicola Sturgeon, Yvette Cooper, Anna Soubry, Dominic Grieve; so called bloody intellectuals such as AC Grayling; institutions such as the CBI who bleat about needing more time to scenario plan; the Speaker of the House of Commons, the Poison Dwarf himself John Bercow; the list goes on and on of people who are apparently so convinced of their own superiority over the rest of us that there are moves afoot this week for motions in Parliament being tabled to wrest control away from our elected government! I’ll repeat that last bit in case you didn’t quite get it; two groups led by Yvette Cooper and Dominic Grieve who are plotting to pass a minority motion that grants them control ABOVE government ….. bloody hell THAT is treason in anybody’s language from a group who see themselves as “super elite”. They seem to be saying “to hell with the referendum of 2016, the General Election of 2017, Textus Rofensis, Magna Carta, and especially to hell with all you sucker voters!”

So, don’t believe this is a class war? ……. think again because this is a very slippery slope for young and old, fisherman and bankers, men and women, northerners and southerners, educated and uneducated. It’s an attempt at an elitist takeover, a revolution that will not end well, for us OR the EU. But it certainly won’t end well for these Elites!
