The 23rd of June was an historical day, it was the day Britain defied all the odds, the experts, the ruling class, marching out in millions to take back control. These are interesting but exciting times and the landscape of politics has changed in our country forever.
The Brexit earthquake is beginning to spread like wild fire across Europe with countries getting ready to demand their freedom from Europe regardless of any scaremongering they may be facing. With a possible, FREXIT from France, DEXIT from Denmark, NEXIT from Netherlands and not leaving out a Czexit from the Czechoslovakia. Voting Brexit in the United Kingdom has sent shockwaves all over Europe with Britain leading the fight against European dictatorship.
The British public went through a gruelling Remain and Leave campaign notably with every scare thrown at them and every important global expert telling the population that there will Armageddon and world war III and every economic disaster anyone alive can expect. At a particular stage it was like watching a Hollywood block buster movie without being in the actual cinema house. The more the scare mongering continued the more the British public ramped up their determination to cast their votes no matter the rain, the thunder or lightning.
Unbelievably, we had it all on the actual EU Referendum day. Heavy rainfall, scores of flooding and even lightening the night before. Many could not vote because of changes in polling station locations but a staggering 33,551,983 million people voted with a clear win of 51.9% voting to ‘Leave’ whilst 16,141,214 million people voted to ‘Remain’.
Yes, indeed it was a close call but democracy, freedom and liberty prevailed.
The resilient British public are the biggest heroes for making this brave, once in our lifetime decision. On the list of heroes on the Leave campaign are notably Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson, Gisela Stuart, Andrea Leadsom and Ian Duncan Smith. Let’s not forget the big business supporters like Sir James Dyson, Lord Anthony Bamford and Tim Martin to mention a few.
Britain has always been short of strong women in politics that truly touch the hearts and minds of the people like Margaret Thatcher. British women in politics have not been able to create a euphoria and move millions of people like we have across the pond in America. The last election saw the entré of Nicola Sturgeon into big politics with a lot of razzmatazz that won her huge popularity and massive number of votes. Sadly she has become power drunk that she is prepared to divide the country no matter what the costs are. She announced immediately before the British public could have a tea break after the EU referendum results that she intends to resume the process of regaining the Scottish Independence from the United Kingdom the second time. You only need to see the social media outcry at such a quick decision. She is now branded as tactless, divisive and only looking out for herself even if it breaks down Scotland.
Might I remind her that out of the 3.6 million people that voted at the last Scottish referendum, only 1.6 million voted for independence with 2 million voting to remain in the United Kingdom. Looking at the Scotland EU referendum results, there were 1.6 million people that wanted to remain in the EU showing that these are the same people wanting an independent Scotland. Does this look like a winner for Nicola Sturgeon when all points to the fact that she cannot get a win for a second Scottish referendum? To win the second time, she will need to get over 2 million votes.
You have women like Gisela Stuart and Andrea Leadsom that have conducted themselves impeccably with a lot of elegance, respect and dignity. These 2 women reached out and touched many British people. They refrained from obscenities and got their points out in a clear and concise manner. Gisela and Andrea proved themselves as women worth their weight in gold. Comparing these women to the other aggressive and really angry women like Amber Rudd and Nicola Sturgeon, who frankly speaking turned off the public from the debates from the beginning of the campaign with their shouting, name calling and their lack of tact. You could also see immediately from social media how disappointed the public was. They failed to get their points out and consequently cost the Remain campaign massive votes. Thankfully, the Remain camp had to get Ruth Davidson to the rescue and she delivered.
Now the country has voted with the phenomenal Brexit victory.
We need to move forward as a country and whichever way the British public might look at it, David Cameron is a hero too.
He was brave enough to allow this referendum and although he might have lost the vote, he has won us back our country and the Great British Pride. He respected the result as broken hearted he was but resigned as Prime Minister with dignity.
For this act, David Cameron is a British Hero.
