Our cowards in power May (no pun intended) do well to remember this

It is an attempt at humour but remember that little matter of troops being on standby?

Those of a certain age may remember General Sir Walter Walker and his Civil Assistance organisation. https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ls/r/C11265477 You can't read the document but you only need to look at personalities to realise it was not Civil Defence.

Things have moved on and 'those of a certain age ' are too stiff of joint today but maybe someone in Westminster remembers.

Funny how hardline Brexiteers can remember WWII so well and yet The Troubles have completely escaped their recollection.

Not really. If their minds were opened wider they wouldn't be Brexiteers.

Said like a true indoctrinee.

Please give the Ďall Brexiteers are stupidí line a rest. Just because it says so in the Guardian it doesnít make it true.

Somebody on the other thread was saying that the anti Brexit petition was strongest around Cambridge. This was meant as a criticism. That would be the Cambridge of Hawking, Newton, Darwin, Turing, Watson, Crick, Keynes and Rutherford.

Who said "all Brexiteers are stupid"? That was you I believe.

I was quoting the very valid comment about "hardline Brexiteers", as demonstrated perfectly by the starting of this thread.

Well said Bob. Patent nonsense that all Brexiteers are stupid. It's the other way round - all stupid people are Brexiteers.

Not a criticism but a fact. Draw your own conclusions.

And Newton went to school in the same town as that ardent Europhil Margaret Thatcher.

In the interest of fairness there are some pretty stupid remainers as well, the 'brexiteers' do not have the monopoly of that trait, as you well know

Absolutely - it's the 99% who give the rest a bad name...

Well quite, but the Brexiters have an overwhelming majority to the point where they probably have a working monopoly.

When Tony Blair and Alastair Campbell are two of the main proponents of Remain, I could be suggested that those who believe in Remain are the idiots.

Funny how we have been told by remain since the referendum that the margin between leave and remain was so small that it does not really count, so that makes the maths of stupid people nearly even on both sides

DUH! If that were true then the referendum result would have been 75-25 in favour of Remain...

I see, so more stupid people would have voted remain if I was correct, that is all right then. Mind you, me being stupid and all that my maths is worse than my grammar and spelling so I would be wrong whatever way.
