DELINGPOLE: We Won Brexit But the Same Dreary Losers Are Still In Charge
by James Delingpole
There is still much dispute as to precisely what it was that persuaded 17.4 million Britons to vote for Brexit last year. Some may have done it to regain Britain’s sovereignty, some to curb immigration, some because they realised correctly that everyone on the Remain side of the argument from one-hit-wonder gobshite Bob Geldof to that preening renter of overpriced desert islands Richard Branson was a weapons-grade, copper-bottomed tick.
But here’s one thing of which we can be pretty sure: nobody voted Brexit – the biggest public vote in favour of anything in UK history – in order to get more of the same old, same old.
Brexit was, perhaps more than anything, a cri de coeur from the silent majority who had been ignored for too long. It sprung from the same impulse that saw Donald Trump win the U.S. presidency – what political economist (and friend to the Donald) Ted Malloch has argued is a paradigm shift in global politics.
If you had to sum up that impulse in a phrase, it would go something like “Enough of this shit, already.”
Sure we might differ on our preferred solutions, but we’re all agreed what the general problem is. For too long a remote, democratically unaccountable, smug, corrupt, self-serving liberal elite has been making all the rules and all the running, while the rest of us just feel poorer, less fairly treated and more constrained by stupid, politically correct rules, regulations, and taxes in a failing system which wastes lots of our money yet gives us little in return.
The good news is that, against the odds, we won Brexit.

    Delingpole is a master of ad hominem and random insults.

    G-20 Poised to Signal Retreat From Climate-Change Funding Pledge
    By Joe Ryan
    (Bloomberg) — Finance ministers for the U.S., China, Germany and other members of the Group of 20 economies may scale back a robust pledge for their governments to combat climate change, ceding efforts to the private sector.
    Citing “scarce public resources,” the ministers said they would encourage multilateral development banks to raise private funds to accomplish goals set under the 2015 Paris climate accord, according to a preliminary statement drafted for a meeting that will be held in Germany next week.
    The statement, obtained by Bloomberg News, is a significant departure from a communique issued in July, when finance ministers urged governments to quickly implement the Paris Agreement, including a call for wealthy nations to make good on commitments to mobilize $100 billion annually to cut greenhouse gases around the globe.

    Another story that ends with “and then I woke up”, and realised that signing high-minded agreements to do expensive ambitious things that will have sfa effect on the planet was silly grandstanding. Holier than thou-ing. Helen Clark style head prefect insisting on school caps being worn and socks pulled up to regulation height.
    If – IF – everyone, you know, EVERYONE, simultaneously, went into Planet-saving mode there is a possibility that eventually (because there’s a built-in delay in planet reaction to what’s been going on in the last decades/century) there might – MIGHT – be a weeny change in warming/cooling/storms/droughts.
    Or it might turn out, when more evidence has been found, that the planet is doing what it does, and a fortnight slower or quicker isn’t a biggie.

    Don’t tell me that rationalism is alive and well!

    But what about the views of primary teachers, Greenpeace, Aaron, Jinty and Cull de Mayor?

    Surely such intelligentsia and luminaries cannot be wrong.

    Let’s go to Agenda 2500.

    It always comes down to the money for these sorts of people. Even if it is an excuse we can thank God that some big hitters will be stepping back from the full on sustainability rubbish.
