THE UK: Is a tinderbox waiting for a flint.
IN my opinion the UK is a tinderbox waiting for a flint.
I am firmly convinced that some event will occur that will cause the whole, up to now suppressed anger and frustration, to erupt into a conflict that will bring unprecedented, disaster and chaos onto the streets of our once great country. It is of course virtually impossible to predict what will ignite this. It may have already happened with the tragic murder of Jo Cox.
It appears her alleged killer was a right-wing fanatic, who disagreed with her views on immigration and so called Islamophobia. Apparently she had been exposed to other threats and suspicion of stalkers in recent weeks, so this maniac is most definitely not a one-off. It may be triggered by a close-run vote to stay in the EU.
Disgruntled Brexit fanatics could well take to the streets to voice their disapproval. One mad neo-Nazi running amok in a predominantly Muslim area with a Kalashnikov is also, to my mind, an extremely possible scenario that could also spark a confrontation.
Bearing in mind that up to now all these types of attacks have been perpetrated by Islamic extremists on the ‘infidels,’ I think this occurrence is probably the most likely of all. Another of Leapy’s ‘dangerous rants,’ I hear the dissenters crying out. Well, be that as it may. I have been accused of ranting on numerous occasions over my 30 years as a columnist and subsequent events have very often silenced the scorners and disbelievers of my alleged scaremongering.
Not that I would be in any way presumptuous enough to compare my eloquence or intelligence to that of the great, sadly maligned statesman Enoch Powell, but I do pride myself in having at least one thing in common. I refuse to live with my head stuck firmly in the sand and an aura of misguided optimism floating around my hind quarters.
I simply cannot understand why there was such an outcry about the UKIP poster of untold thousands of immigrants crossing European borders.
To me a picture paints a thousand words!
Keep the faith.

On the subject of the death of Joe Cox, Mr.Pulleyblank conveniently ignores his own responsibility by his years of racist and frankly incitefull extreme statements towards foreigners. It is people like this man who give encouragement to the lunatic right wing neo nazi elements. Championing a man like Enoch Powell is evidence enough. Powell was a bigoted, racist political opportunist, not in any way unlike the very same politicians that the author of this BS now rails against. To suggest that all terrorist attacks should be blamed on Islamist extremists shows an appalling lack of understanding of the role of the British, not only for the past centuries, but especially now in the Middle East. Are you not aware that your country is providing the Saudi Arabians with cluster bombs to use against Yemeni civilians? That your country has achieved its title of “Great” only by the destructive, brutal policies over the last few hundred years? Enoch Powell has been relegated to the dustbin of history. As will you.
And will you be leading the charge? From your armchair?
NEW HOPE IS RISING FROM THE ASHES OF DEFEAT. NOW IS THE TIME THAT BRITAIN HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME GREAT AGAIN. THE RESULT OF THE REFERENDUM PROVES THAT BRITAIN HAS NOT SURRENDERED TO THE POLITICS OF FEAR AND HAS PROVED THAT BRITAIN, IS A BRITAIN OF THE BRAVE. BRITAIN CAN BECOME THE LAND OF HOPE AND GLORY MOTHER OF THE FREE!
Leapy, it may well be that the immigrant population will keep a low profile for a while, for many will be concerned about the result of this vote. It will not be until we start deporting the undesirables that we hear from them. I sincerely hope the next government will take action to deport all those Muslims and other foreigners that cause us problems, like the criminals crowding our jails and the radical preachers that infest the mosques. We need to take a tough stance with these people to let them know once and for all that we are a Christian nation and will not allow them to take over.
Well, Pulleyblank, in order to stick your head in the sand, you will need to pull it out of your ass first.
We have dumped beurocraciy and regained democracy. However who is going to sort out the mess. Johnson. No chance thick as two short planks If he stands inan election as Prime Minister labour will wak it
I suspect that the greed and corruption at the heart of the EU has been it’s own downfall. Perhaps other countries will follow. We have all seen the MEP’s that turn up and sign the attendance book and immediately go home again. It has been exposed on many TV screens. Then there are the outrageous, salaries and expenses that can be wrangled from a very bent system.The Golden Goose will slowly stop laying it’s golden eggs. And not before time.Had it been picked up earlier, this would never needed to have happened. And the EU could have benefited the people instead of the insatiable politicians.I have to state NOT all politicians, but the guilty ones know who they are.Cheersleo
The EU has lost its way and I agree with you when you comment on the corruption.The commission is headed up by a man with absolutely zero credibility and a dubious reputation. How this man Juncker got the job beggars belief. His appointed was strongly resisted but Merkel got him in. The whole scenario stinks.l
Nice sentiment but get real.it,s a hundred years since Britain was great. On top of that if Scotland becomes independent Grat Britain will no longer exist.
We accept that politicians can have double standards as proved by the lies mentioned in BREXIT but I am still amused by Paul Dacre, Daily Mail editor whose estates have benefited from at least ÃÂ£460,000 of EU agriculture money since 2011
I can accept that politicians tell lies as proved by those campaigning for BREXIT but I am still amused by the Daily Mail editor whose estates owned have benefited from at least ÃÂ£460,000 of EU agriculture money since 2011 and he criticizes the EU. What they did not give him enough money?
Boris Johnson is great a personality. However his record as Londons Mayor leaves a lot to be desired. His promise to provide affordable housing fell well short, although his project to pursuade people to ride bicycles in the traffic and fumes of the city was a success as can be seen by the increased number of fatalities.As a prime minister he will probably be the same but with the present crisis and mess to sort out selecting him would be insanity.
I’m not sure that Britain ‘achieved’ the title GREAT.My schoolboy history lessons taught me that the man William of Normandy referred to it as Grand Bretagne as it was the much larger section of his expanding Kingdom.Brittany/Bretagne being the smaller and original section.As is often the case we Brits distort the meaning of foreign words to fit our own aspirations.
Was it Bishop Tutu that told us that when the Brits came to Africa, all they had was the bible. The Zulu’s had all the land. Then we closed out eyes to pray and when we opened them again the Brits had all of the land and the Zulus had the bible. If that makes us great I’m glad i wasn’t part of it. Cheersleo
If Johnson wins the ballot it will only make it worse. There is only one man who can sort this out despite the fact that I am not his greatest fan and that is George Osborne. He is the perfect choiceTheresa May is a tinkerer who has done very little of real significance other worry about there not being enough ethnic people in the police and fire brigades.
