The Englishman Who Is Addicted To Brexit

by Neil Bamforth

Brexit. When will it all end? Well, March next year actually. At least, it will be provided when we are completely free of the shackles of the European Union. Prime Minister, Theresa May, seems to be doing her best to keep some ties to them with her ‘Chequers’ proposal but, with luck, we’ll be free come March.

Something rather odd is increasingly coming to light.

Having worked for many years at Heathrow Airport, I have made and kept many chums from Europe. Mainly eastern Europe.

Also, as a driving instructor, I have had many students from Europe. Again mainly eastern Europe.

The vast majority are in favor of Brexit. Seriously, they are.

Even though most are in Blighty via the free movement of people.

This has continually surprised me – or, at least, it did until they explained.

Their explanations were virtually identical.

“The EU is corrupt and run by unelected officials”.

Their words, not mine.

The thing is, many of these primarily eastern Europeans had been here long enough to vote on Brexit. Many had taken out British citizenship.

They voted ‘leave’ even though our membership had entitled them to come here.

Those who couldn’t vote have said they are relieved we are leaving.

My many Polish friends, along with Romanian, Lithuanian and Slovakian chums all want their home nations to have ‘home rule’.

They don’t want to be governed by a centralized EU government – which is, of course, the EU ultimate goal.

So. Accusations that those who voted ‘leave’ are all racist xenophobes begins to look even sillier.

The ‘remain’ camp is still clammering for another referendum. Ironically typical of the EU itself given its reputation for re-running referendums until they get the result they want a la Ireland and The Netherlands.

Still, it is somewhat comforting to know that European immigrants to Blighty seem to have the same antipathy to the awful EU as many Brits have.

I think I may purchase some fireworks.

March next year will be well worth a celebration.

I’ll invite all my eastern European chums.

A few bottles of Polish beer, a nice Slovakian meal and then, with much vodka flowing, the fireworks to say goodbye to the EU with a bang.

    So are they all going to go back to their home nations to work to fix them from the inside or stay in the UK and moan from there????

      Most, as far as I can tell, are staying in Blighty. They like it here and, apart from the odd far right nutters, feel welcomed.

      Besides…they moan just like us! 😂
