A Great Time to be British

Some agitators for the sovereignty of Parliament called a demonstration today, some months after winning a referendum ostensibly about the sovereignty of Parliament, because they are aggrieved at the high court for asserting the sovereignty of Parliament. More than fifteen thousand were invited; two thousand said they would turn up; and in keeping with the Leave campaign's enviable record of reliability, a few dozen actually did. The Britishness-signalling of this patriotic elite was rewarded with a blather from the chinless dimness that is Jacob Rees-Mogg, who spoke in tongues ("we have to make sure it is continued until the end and that we leave as soon as soon"), blessed the United Kingdom by putting words in the mouth of the United States (couldn't he find a British quote?) and attributed a misquote from Julius Caesar to something called "the great Boris Johnson." No, I don't know what that is either; but it is presumably a Boris Johnson somewhat other than the Boris Johnson who announces to foreign newspapers what his patroness will not deign to share with the House of Commons. The rabble was also roused by the dentally-oriented race-baiter, David Davies (not to be confused with the floundering prima donna and David Davis publicist, David Davis), and by one of those clapped-out UKIP leadership things of which there seem to be so many these days. Such fun was had by all that another demonstration against the sovereignty of Parliament and in favour of something that is already happening will take place in ten days' time. One can only wonder how long they'll be able to sustain this level of intensity.

    Thanks; but it's only fair to point out that the mainstream media are the source for almost all my material here. But, as we all know from the warm, witty and wise people in Hollywood, it's the attitude that makes the difference.
