REJOINERS - STOP LOOKING DOWN ON PEOPLE

A newspaper owner is sitting at a table with you, an immigrant and a full packet of biscuits.  The newspaper owner opens the pack, puts 1 biscuit in front of you, then the rest in his own pocket.  Then he whispers in your ear "careful, that immigrant wants your biscuit".  Of whom should you be careful? You work for a sausage company for £9 per hour.  One of your co-workers earns £10 per hour, doing the same job with no differences between you.  Do you fight to get your co-worker down to £9 per hour, or to get your wage up to £10 per hour? Obviously, you are careful of the newspaper owner and fight to get your wage put up to £10 per hour, if you have any sense, right? Well people don't tend to.  They look down the chain rather than up the chain.  I guess it could be 'animal instinct', you would attack or fight back against something your own size or smaller.  But are more likely to cower against something bigger than you.

Well, that's over.  Brexit means we are no longer part of the single market and we can no longer cr

ONLY REJOINERS DESERVE YOUR REJOINERS VOTE!

When I saw Labour narrowly win the Batley and Spen by-election, followed by Keir Starmer announcing it as a great victory for Labour and how "Labour is back", well as a Rejoiner it worried me somewhat. If Labour start to win seats again, but before we've had a chance to force them to see sense and back Rejoining the EU, then that will embolden Keir Starmer's insistence on completely ignoring what is going on all around us for everyone from farmers to musicians, logistics companies affecting prices in the shops to touring DJs, you and I buying goods from the EU to breweries. The list is endless.  'Project Fear' was just the tip of the iceberg compared to 'Project Reality'. We often post in groups on Facebook or on Twitter the almost daily stories of people being hurt because of Brexit, or entire sectors of industry or society.  Then we blame the 'deal' that was negotiated.  Then progress onto Boris Johnson, the tories, etc etc. Then we rightly p
