With the United Kingdom voting to extricate itself from the European Union late last week, MyThinks spoke with supporters of the successful Leave campaign. Lord Montague Nez Marron du Chevalier, a member of the Tory Party since he was 3 years old, headed strategy for the Leave campaign in the West Midlands.
Britain is great. That’s why it is called Great Britain. And this is a great day for Britain. My Britain; your Britain; but not their Britain.
Great Britain is a proud nation. We invented kippers, jellied eels and pork scratchings – all those bits of the animal or whole animals that nobody really wants to eat. We packaged them up, marketed them and people ate them. That is how great we are.
And now, with the successful leave vote, we can get back to being the nation we once were. The nation where any red-blooded Britain could go down the pub for his lunch on a Saturday afternoon and then head off to his local football ground to fight while his team played on the grass in front of him.
Before this weekend, that wasn’t possible. Men would have to hide in their houses being protected from their wives as all the fighting was done by kipper-eating Albanians who were here to undercut our builders by working for £1 an hour – exactly the same amount they paid to fly here on EasyJet in the first place.
Now we have our football grounds back. Now we have Boris Johnson, a representative of the people. A representative of all those working class gas fitters and miners who all went to Eton before heading down the mines or the shipyards.
We all worry about what the future but there is absolutely nothing to worry about. My French father and my German grandmother have both left me millions of pounds so I’m able to hide out on my estate here in Shropshire. I’m sure many of our bus and taxi drivers, builders, plumbers, teachers, nurses and other hard-working Brits will be doing exactly the same.
Well done Britain. Top marks and ballyhoo.
