Remainers’ Dodgy United Ireland Poll

Remainers have been working themselves up into a froth today on the back of polling results conducted on behalf of remainiac campaign groups Our Future Our Choice and Best For Britain which appear to show that a majority of voters in Northern Ireland would back a united Ireland “if” Brexit goes ahead. Polls typically show less than a third of voters in Northern Ireland in favour of a united Ireland, even since the EU referendum. Why has a Remainer-commissioned poll produced a radically different result?

In Deltapoll’s sample, 824 people voted to Remain while only 292 voted to Leave, a ratio of 74% to 26%. Northern Ireland only voted 56% to 44% in the referendum.

301 people who responded to the poll were supporters of the Alliance Party, allied with the Liberal Democrats, while only 162 were supporters of the pro-Union DUP. In the 2017 General Election the DUP got more than 4 times as many votes as the Alliance, who were beaten into 5th place with a measly 7.9%. At least they outperformed their Liberal Democrat allies…

Deltapoll have weighted the sample but the raw data is so skewed that it puts major question marks over the credibility of the results. It just so happens that it produced exactly the headline the Remainers who commissioned it wanted…

Perhaps they should take a look over the border where the new Irexit Freedom Party launched this weekend, calling for Ireland to follow the UK out of the EU exit door. A much more sensible idea…

Davis: I’ll Vote to Chuck Chequers Proposal

The former Brexit Secretary tells Marr “The Chequers proposal is almost worse than staying in…”

Time’s Up for Second Referendum

Bloomberg is reporting this morning that privately British and EU negotiating teams are saying that terms won’t be agreed until the middle of November. Something Guido has been hearing from government sources for some time. This will barely give parliament enough time to ratify the deal in the new year.

Given that it would take months to agree the terms of a second referendum – even if there were a majority for it in parliament – that means that the sands of time have run out for a second referendum. Cable, Chuka, Soubry, Lucas et al are wasting their time because they are out of time. The whole remainiac campaign is a futile impotent exercise…

Civil Service Working on Continuing Customs Union Membership

The Department for International Trade is interviewing for a ‘Business Support Manager’. The second bullet point in the five “key areas of responsibility” gives away that the department is developing policy about membership of the Customs Union. This directly breaks one of Theresa May’s most important red lines…

“Customs Union: with G7 support, leading BEAT’s [Business Environment Advisory Team] engagement with those developing the policy about the UK’s membership of the Customs Union, as it develops.”

Trade Secretary Liam Fox has consistently said that “no form of customs union is acceptable after Brexit” and that membership of one would constitute “a complete sell-out of Britain’s national interests.” His department seems to disagree…

UPDATE: The DIT have been in touch to say that the description was “incorrect,” despite the job description referencing the Customs Union twice.

“This job description was incorrect – the government has made very clear that the UK is leaving the Customs Union. We will establish a new and ambitious customs arrangement with the EU that will allow us to maintain as frictionless trade as possible in goods between the UK and EU.”

Guido hears that interviews began today…

Brexit Bad Boy Banks Joins Tories

Top trolling. To be fair he was a Tory branch chairman back in the day. It will be interesting to see if he is anathema to Tory leadership hopefuls or not…

UPDATE: This evening the Tories are briefing that they’re not going to let him in, Banks is saying he has already got his acceptance email:

Twitter Bitch Fight of the Week

Remainer’s favourite loopy Twitter lord, Andrew Adonis has found himself in a twitter bitch fight with wet Tory Tom Tugendhat. After referring to Tugendhat in a tweet as ‘dripping’ (without even the courtesy of tagging him – very bad twitter etiquette), Tugendhat slapped back with ‘you’re just another troll’, before seeing Adonis off with a final rhetorical soccer punch. Worth reading the sharp exchange in full below…

TRG vs Leave.EU

The wet Tory Reform Group is trying to weaponise an attention seeking Leave.EU tweet implying 10,000 of its ‘members’ have joined the Tories. The remainers at the TRG see it as a useful recruitment tool for themselves…

Guido would advise that anyone falling for the TRG/Leave.EU spin should take a look at the full list of things Arron Banks has promised that never happened:

  • Judicial review of EU referendum designation
  • BPopLive
  • Hollywood movie about Brexit
  • Invoicing UKIP £200,000
  • Patriotic Alliance
  • Clacton candidacy
  • Pirate radio station in Clacton
  • Fielding candidates to oust 100 MPs
  • Draining the Swamp at the next election.
  • Bankrolling the Andrea Leadsom leadership campaign
  • Suing Vote Leave’s CEO Matthew Elliott
  • Buying Guido lunch

What Leave.EU has managed to do once again is give ammunition to the ultra-remainers trying to stop Brexit. Anyone indulging him is either an idiot or a remainer.

#FBPE Tweeters Claim Andrea Jenkyns is a Russian Agent

First we had Corbynistas telling each other to throw their TVs in the bin in protest at the BBC. Now Guido brings you the latest from the other deranged corner of Twitter: the #FBPE Remainers. Dozens of them are accusing Brexiteer MP Andrea Jenkyns of being some sort of Russian agent.

Is it a full moon or something?

Brexit Britain More Tolerant than EU

A pan-European poll taken at the height of the EU referendum shows that the UK had the least negative view of Muslims of any European country polled by Pew Research Centre. Good luck to Remainers explaining that Brexit Britain is more tolerant than their burka-banning EU friends… 

Remain Minister Asks Constituents If They Want Second Referendum

This seems to have gone unnoticed: Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt is running a survey on his website asking his constituents if they want a second referendum.

He writes that constituents have emailed him who are “angry and concerned about how [the Brexit] process is progressing”.

Entertaining the idea of a second referendum is clearly a major breach of government policy. What is Burt playing at? Imagine if a leave supporting minister surveyed their constituents asking if they want no deal. There would be outrage.

Two Years After Leave Vote: Unemployment at Lowest Level For 40 Years

Before the referendum, George Osborne’s Treasury published detailed propaganda analysis of the two years that would follow a Leave vote.

“This paper focuses on the immediate economic impact of a vote to leave and the two years that follow.

A vote to leave would represent an immediate and profound shock to our economy. That shock would push our economy into a recession and lead to an increase in unemployment of around 500,000, GDP would be 3.6% smaller, average real wages would be lower”

Official ONS figures released today, two years after the vote to Leave, reveal that UK unemployment fell by 65,000 to 1.36 million in three months to June, taking it to the lowest level for more than 40 years. Wages are up by 2.7%, youth unemployment is at its lowest since records began, and productivity has seen its biggest rise since 2016. Oh, and 104,000 fewer people are on zero hours contracts as their main job. This officially-sanctioned lie from the government and civil service does not get enough attention.

Guido Readers Supercharge Darren’s Fightback

Darren Grimes will be submitting his Appeal to the County Court this week, following the overwhelming response of Guido readers, supporting his righteous fight against the biased Electoral Commission. An incredible 97% of Darren’s target has been raised so far from almost 2,000 donors, each making an average pledge of just £32. 25% of the 1803 pledges came from people aged 25-34.

You can get him to his £60,000 target by donating here…

3AM Eternal for the Bitter Pollster of Remain

In the dark hours of last night the Remain campaign’s pollster – who told David Cameron to go to bed happy on referendum night because he had won by 10 points – can’t restrain his bitterness. Accusing Boris of courting “fascism”. Juvenile analysis as usual from Andrew Cooper.

Brexit Britain Beating Eurozone Growth

GDP growth rates for this year’s second quarter are in, and despite uncertainty, Brexit Britain bowling along with impressive and better than expected 0.4% growth, double the rate of the first quarter, despite the noticeable ramp up in continuity project fear’s dire no-deal warnings. Meanwhile the Eurozone grew on average by 0.3%, and France by just 0.2%. It’s a good job we aren’t into the Eurozone…

Euroman Mayer to IEA

Andy Mayer is joining the senior management at the Institute of Economic Affairs as Chief Operating Officer. Andy joins the IEA after 7 years doing public affairs for BASF plc. What will confuse remainiac conspiracy theorists even more is that Andy previously worked for the European Movement, voted Remain and is a former LibDem activist. Evidence of his hard commitment to the EU can be seen in these decades old pictures…

Lord Gnome Copying Guido Again

Remainer rag Private Eye has clearly been reading Guido again, with their satirical take on Darren Grimes’ righteous crusade to fight the biased Electoral Commission. Guido thinks that Private Eye’s public schoolboys should try punching up at the cheating monied remainers rather than kicking down at the working class kid from County Durham.

You can donate to Darren’s crowdfunder here. Just £3,000 to go…

Remainer Quits Job to Draw “Stop Brexit” Across Europe

From Adonis to AC Grayling, Brexit Derangement Syndrome has gripped many since the referendum result last year. But one man has decided to take it a whole lot further… 30,000 kilometres further in fact. Former consultant Andy Pardy has quit his job, bought a ten-year old van, and set out on a 3-month journey to try to draw the words “Stop Brexit” across Europe with a GPS tracker. Yes, really…

“A lot of people obviously thought it was barmy, and it is crazy when you think about it,” Pardy told the New European. Many Guido readers may well be inclined to agree. Pardy set out last month from Loch Lomond and has currently completed the S, T and the O. His route isn’t the only thing that’s a little loopy…

He’s due to finish in Spain in October, just around the time of the crunch European Council Summit when the UK and EU are supposed to be putting the finishing touches on the Withdrawal Agreement. Which one will the wheels come off first?

Raab, Gove, Fox, Leadsom Try to Sell Chequers to Tory Members

Guido is not sure Tory members are going to react well to these words from Raab, Gove, Fox and Leadsom trying to convince them to back Chequers, in a letter that arrived in the post this morning. Some of the stuff they are saying here is just flat out untrue. Do they think their own members are stupid?

Times Brexit Warning is From Politicians Not Police

Remainers have been making plenty of this front page story in the Times this morning which claimed that the police have warned Sajid Javid that a no-deal Brexit would “pose a risk to public safety.” However, any super-sleuth detectives who investigated the story themselves will have pieced together the clues that this was not in fact a letter from the Old Bill themselves but from a small group of Police and Crime Commissioners – politicians, not police. ‘Ello ‘ello…

There are 40 PCCs altogether – 20 of whom are Conservative – but the letter itself is from the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners, which in fact counts only 2 Conservative PCCs out of its 7 board members. It’s chaired by Labour’s Mark Burns-Williamson, while one of the Independent PCCs on its board, Martin Surl, is a former EU advisor. Wot’s going on ‘ere then?

One of the signatories to the letter itself is Lord (Willy) Bach, a former Labour Shadow Attorney General who made exactly the same claims about Brexit before the referendum. It’s a political intervention through and through. Turns out the Times scoop was not much cop…

Luvvies’ Shakespearean Brexit Derangement

Guido would have thought that luvvies could be able to enjoy a play or two without letting their mind numbing hatred of the British people’s decision for the UK to withdraw from the EU. Apparently not, as reviewers of the new Globe Theatre production of Othello have been projecting their loathing for the result of the UK’s 2016 EU referendum into this 453 year old play.[…] Read the rest
