SO INSPIRING

By Pete Moore On July 2nd, 2019

In scenes which surely prick the conscience of the world, democracy protestors today peacefully demonstrated against the hostile power colonising their homeland –

Ode to Joy was a favourite of Adolf Hitler, the last man to unify Europe under one government. By sad contrast, hardline anti-democracy regimists in the illegitimate chamber were vulgar and embarrassing.

  1. Have a little respect.

    Antics like this won’t help at all.

  2. I wonder will they be so quick to turn their backs on their € paid salaries and pensions?

  3. Embarrassing attempt.

    They’re supposed to take their tops off, put their arms on each other’s shoulders and jump up and down. 3/10.

  4. Oh dear. Seems like it’s backfired on social media into a PR disaster:

  5. Pete knows it was a rude childish stunt. That’s why he is being so tongue in cheek about it. He doesn’t want to admit what a bunch of hypocritical immature morons the Brexit party MEPs are.

  6. This is a sensitive time when you don’t want to do stuff like this.

  7. More than ever, this needs to be done. The EU is an enemy regime literally intent on the break up and destruction of the UK and all the nation states of Europe.

    Those fine men and women are there under sufferance, because we should be a sovereign, independent and self-governing country again by now. They promised to gum up the works and I wish them well. They have no allegiance to the EU and have no moral obligation to show the slightest respect.

    And one man is not happy, European Parliament President @Antonio_Tajani “You stand for the anthem of another country”

    “Another country”! So says Tajani. I say screw Tajani and screw the EU. Leaving it is not enough. The British intelligence services ought to be directed to undermining it, at every opportunity, with a view to its rightful destruction.

  8. The ONLY purpose of the Brexit party is to whip up hostility to Europe amongst the British people . It has no other function. How such poisonous hostility helps to improve the U.K. and its citizens beats me but it plays on one of the most cowardly but easiest political tricks in the book , the willingness to satisfy the worst and most negative of nationalistic impulses.

  9. // The EU is an enemy regime //

    But, Pete, did you not tell us recently that the enemy is not the EU, but British parties and instituions, especially Parliament.

    Maybe they should turn their backs next time GStQ is played.

  10. Come on Noel, don’t fall for Pete’s Blarney. Do you think he believes a word of that “Brave resistance” nonsense he is spouting on this thread. He has a sense of humour unlike those tinpot freeloaders in the EU parliament who probably genuinely think their petulant display was an act of brave noble freedom loving patriotism.

  11. That’s not it’s only purpose Colm. It’s a motley crue of revolutionary Communists, silver spoon rich kids, international financiers and career politicians funded by shadowy Arron Banks types who want to turn Britain into a tax haven.

  12. … and Ann Widdecome, Paul. Don’t forget her. She fits into a crazy box category all of her own 😉

  13. Those fine men and women are there under sufferance, because we should be a sovereign, independent and self-governing country again by now.

    In that case their childish antics are being expressed in the wrong parliament. It’s Westminster that can’t get their act together.

    The EU wants the UK out. The sooner out the sooner it will realise its mistake and will give up the Queen’s face on their currency to get back in.

    And there’s plenty in the UK trying to break it up. What other country has such large minorities within its regions wanting away… off the top of my head, parts of Russia.

  14. … who want to turn Britain into a tax haven.

    God no, we’ll have to stump up less tax? Quelle Horreur!

  15. I actually think that the majority opinion in the EU is sick of all this pissing about by the Brits SMcand it’s now a case of FFS just go and shut the door after you.

    Brexiteers are of course pretending to be democrats by their continuous carping of ‘implement Brexit and then have a vote to re enter’ banking on it being unlikely that there will be unaniminity within the European Council voting for it, that’s a dangerous game.

    How hilarious would it be for them to get what they want and your second point to come to fruition? 🙂

  16. God no, we’ll have to stump up less tax? Quelle Horreur!

    The amount of Irish Fiscal and political policies being copied ye might consider Dublin rather than Brussels rule.

  17. Yes, it was childish and the Brexit party are clowns… but…they have a germ of a point (and I’m generally pro-EU).

    Being made to stand for f***ing Ode to Joy and it being called an “anthem” is a bit ridiculous.

  18. I guess that TBP MEP’s hearts are in the right place, and as PM says it was a non-violent form of protest. However, acts of political theatre such as this seem to leave a bad taste in the mouth and will endear no-one to their cause. I’d prefer it if they just stood silently.
    I also think that LV Beethoven would probably turn in his grave to see his non-political music used as a (supra-) national anthem, whether by the EU or by Hitler. I’ve read that his use of “Ode To Joy” in the 9th Symphony was meant as a celebration of the brotherhood of humanity or something of the sort, but not in any explicit political sense.

  19. Pete will now admire the former lord mayor of Sheffield, who was kicked out of the EU parliament today.

  20. Paul,

    It was my first thought once the UK voted for Brexit. It might take a generation, but it seems highly unlikely that the UK wont look to region at some time in the future, imo. And part of the price will be paid by adopting the euro.

  21. And part of the price will be paid by adopting the euro.

    Bet the farm on that being a price of readmission. As I said, it’s a dangerous game.

  22. in the 9th Symphony was meant as a celebration of the brotherhood of humanity or something of the sort, but not in any explicit political sense.

    Seems perfect for the EU ideals of a brotherhood of nations.

  23. God no, we’ll have to stump up less tax? Quelle Horreur!

    Who said anything about you having to pay less tax Pete?

  24. This was a headline grabbing stunt as much as a political statement. And it worked ! 🙂

    I mean, anyone heard from the CUK’s recently and their splitter ex-chums ? Thought not. There is only one thing worse than being talked about. And that is not being talked about. And no one mentions the CUK’s and ex-CUK’s these days, do they ?

  25. It worked okay, just not in the way it was intended. This has been retweeted 2,600 times on social media:
