GOOD QUESTION

By Pete Moore On August 12th, 2019

I’m feeling international solidarity with the brave Hong Kongers, and not just because they were a part of the British Empire, the best thing that ever happened to an undeserving world.

Like them, we too are in a desperate fight for our national survival and democratic birthrights against an authoritarian, anti0democratic foe intent on wholly subsuming us to its rule.

  1. You are referring to the ERG aren’t you Pete ? 😉

  2. I have a feeling of dread about what is happening in Hong Kong and what may happen.

    I think that the protesters were unwise to take over the airport there – its poking the tiger in the eye

  3. Hong Kong could turn very ugly.

  4. I agree they shouldn’t have taken the airport, that’s an escalation that won’t get the result they want unless they want a bloodbath.

  5. To pretend the EU has the same totalitarian threat as China, or that Brexit supporters are in an equal struggle is among the most absurd claims in the history of ATW

  6. Come on Mahons, can’t you tell when Pete has his Brexit waving tongue firmly lodged in his British Empire cheeks 😉

  7. This time it is in the lower cheeks.

  8. The EU Would I think be 99% benign, or with benign intent.

    Even those Brits who wish to leave it IMO shouldn’t be exaggerating it’s flaws.

  9. // desperate fight for our national survival and democratic birthrights against an authoritarian, antidemocratic foe intent//

    In the name of “democracy”, Pete etc. are calling for a crash-out Brexit which a majority in the British parliament and a majority of the people in Britain are firmly against.

  10. Oh Noel.

    Boris Johnson has the support of more than half of the public to deliver Brexit by any means, including suspending Parliament, according to a poll.

    The ComRes survey for The Telegraph found that 54 per cent of British adults think Parliament should be prorogued to prevent MPs stopping a no-deal Brexit.

    The poll suggested the Prime Minister is more in tune with the public’s views on Brexit than MPs, following his promise to deliver Brexit by October 31 “do or die”.
