The left-wing are howling like air raid sirens over Brexit; good lord, it’s music to my ears

The tears of impotent rage emanating from left-wing commentators over Brexit is as astonishing as it is enjoyable.

Polly Toynbee is crying rivers of tears. Read it and love it.

Catastrophe. Britain has broken apart. An uprising of resentment by the left-behind has torn us in two, a country wrecked by a yawning class divide stretched wider by recession and austerity.

Anger against a London establishment was deftly diverted by the Tory right and Ukip towards foreigners – enemies in Brussels and aliens in our midst. Wherever we went, the Guardian reported that same fury among those without education and opportunity, a country served right for its gross inequality.

Day after day the Sun, Mail, Express, Sunday Times and Telegraph injected poison into the nation’s bloodstream with tales of foreign criminals, jihadists and scroungers. How Murdoch and Dacre will revel in their power.  

What of the false hopes raised for poorly paid, insecure, badly housed Brexit voters? Expecting something better, they will get much worse. “Controlling our borders”, they will expect immigrants, new and old, to be gone. They were told more housing, GP appointments and school places would be freed up from migrants. But as treasury receipts fall, there will be less of everything. Will the next call be to expel foreigners already here? What dark place does Britain for the British take us to?

Farage’s victory speech about the decent ordinary people taking back control “without a bullet fired” was unthinkably crass with an MP shot and stabbed to death in the heat of the campaign.

Cameron must surely be gone, the most disastrous prime minister in our lifetime has brought this calamity. But he will no doubt be replaced by one yet worse as the country is taken over by Tory extremists and fantasists, wild free-marketeer romantics experimenting with other people’s lives, alongside Ukip’s pernicious racism.

Ahead lie years of fractious negotiation, turning the EU into Britain’s number one enemy. The more these populist leaders need to prove this wasn’t a fatal error, the more they will blame all home-grown woes on our close neighbours. Britain has turned its back on the world.

It’s the media’s fault, it’s the Tories’, it’s UKIP’s, democracy is broken, wah, wah, wah.

People like Polly Toynbee never understand what happened because they are so far up their own fundament that they think their own shit has a delightful aroma that everyone else should enjoy. The rest of us voters just wrinkle our noses and ask who farted.

Perhaps she should reacquaint herself with a strong socialist and, ironically, Frog song…and listen to the people sing…it is the happy sound of democracy returning to the United Kingdom.

They really don’t like democracy when it delivers them defeat.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
