Following this article, the comments received (bar one, the originator of which appears to have only one brain cell – and that, unfortunatley, appears not to be in full working order), coupled with the emails that I have had in support, means that this blog will be continuing to air its views.
Readers may well understand the despondency I felt that, along with other bloggers, our views were being ignored especially by the political class, the sycophantic followers of the former and the media; and thus had no way in which they could be publicy aired.
With the scheduled launch of the Leave Alliance on 16th March which will, hopefully, promote not ony FlexCit and The Harrogate Agenda but also bloggers more knowledgeable about matters EU than our political class and the media, one can but hope our readership may grow – assuming of course the media decides to cover said launch and report on it in a fair manner.
So far those leave groups so far declared seem more interested in themselves as ‘figure-heads’, rather than in those they seek to inform and thus recruit to their message. One can but hope that those in Leave Alliance will not commit the same mistake. What will be interesting is to see who appears on the ‘top table’ at the launch of Leave Alliance, who speaks; and what they have to say.
This blog has commented via Twitter against the ‘leave’ groups so far declared (Vote_Leave, Leave.eu and Grassroots Out) and it will not be afraid to criticise the message of Leave Alliance if it is deemed necessary – which it is hoped will not be the case. Mind you, if they still have The Harrogate Agenda as Stage 6 of their exit plan (FlexCit) then they can expect a little ‘flak’ as I am still waiting for a sensible answer to my previous quesions on this subject.
Anyways, I have slightly digressed from the subject matter of this article so it will close with thanks to all the comments and emails I have received requesting that I do not ‘shut down’ – and for that those people have my thanks. What tempers the elation I feel at the support I have received is the knowledge that those from whom it would have been nice to receive similar messages of encouragement – and who I thought were ‘friends’ – appear to have remained silent.
Question: might that last comment lead one to think that those missing are so in thrall to their leader they are afraid to ‘break ranks’; that they are but sycophants and are thus unable to think and decide matters for themselves?
Isn’t that the problem we have with our political class? Just asking………
