Brexit Day is here

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


As we approach midnight CET tonight (11pm in London) this is the song I would be playing in Parliament Square if it were up to me. I shall be there, with an old friend – a former business partner of mine at an international law firm –  drinking in an historical moment.

We Leavers have suffered over three years of abuse. We’ve been called racists, xenophobes, Little Englanders, uneducated idiots, Northerners (I never minded that one) etc. We’ve been called everything but a Christian. At times our own tempers have frayed but I think on the whole most of us have conducted ourselves well. As I marched with the Leavers through London last March, we confined ourselves to making “Loser” signs on our forehead at the braying hostiles jeering our progress. At the time I wasn’t sure they really were losers. I still feared they might succeed in their frantic, unprincipled attempts to thwart us. Thank God they didn’t, as that would have finally shattered our fragile faith in our institutions.

Tonight’s celebration is more about still having a functioning democracy, than about Brexit itself.

I have been “unfriended”, “blocked” and “unfollowed” by angry Remoaners but have never taken the same approach. I have many friends who voted Remain and respect their opinion. However, for anyone who is (like Adam Boulton on Sky News this morning) still trying to mock and smear us, their hour has come. It’s over. They lost. They can own it or fade into irrelevance. From tomorrow I shall unfriend, block and unfollow any who persist in slagging us off. Not because they have a different point of view, but because by persisting now they prove that they are enemies of democracy itself.

My principled Remainer friends would be welcome to stand with me tonight on Parliament Square. I would buy them a drink, console them in their disappointments and reassure them it’s all going to be fine. Our differences are many but, in the end, we Brits are one people under the Rule of Law; the people of Coke, Austen and Shakespeare. 

If you’re planning to be there, I would love to meet you this evening. I shall be in The Lord Moon of the Mall pub on Whitehall from about 1830 onwards, from where I will adjourn to Parliament Square at 2100.
