A Very Happy Brexit Day! 

Comment: 

Mairead McGuinness is the first Vice President of the European Parliament, in post since 2017.   In several news interviews following Nigel Farage’s final speech at the European Parliament she highlighted Nigel’s use of the word “hate”,  shock-horrified at the use of that word.  However, contrary to her disingenuous insinuations, Nigel did not say that he hated any person, or group or nation, merely the structures, the system. It’s reasonable to assume that Ms McGuinness would hate to live under the totalitarian regime in North Korea and she would be outraged, surely, if anyone misinterpreted that sentiment to suggest that she hates the people of North Korea.

In an email exchange earlier today, the reader who expressed enthusiasm about marking Brexit Day with this thread, threw cold water on Mairead McGuinness’s remarks about the use of the word “hate” by Nigel Farage in the above clip – he writes: 

“I don’t care what that humourless Irish woman thinks. I hate the EU as well. It seems that ‘hate’ has become a crime, but there’s nothing wrong with hate under certain circumstances. It’s quite right to hate evil. The EU is of its nature thoroughly evil, as are all totalitarian systems (although whether every willing participant realises that is another matter) so there’s nothing wrong with calling it evil. I feel like I’ve just got out of prison! And a Happy Brexit Day to you!”

Anyway, share your thoughts on the UK’s future outside the EU.  With no need to implement EU directives, is there a chance we can begin to restore  Christian culture, not least in the area of personal morality, and the teaching of marriage and family life in schools?  

Finally, as an acknowledgment of the one million-plus Scots who voted to leave the EU  – but who have been generally ignored in virtually all the discussions about Brexit since 2016 – let’s launch this discussion  by flying our national flag, as we pray for Scotland and the rest of the UK, at this important juncture in our history. 

St Andrew, pray for us!
St George, pray for us! 

St David, pray for us!
St Patrick, pray for us!

Our Lady, Queen of Peace… pray for us!

  1. Ad love as all on here would love to see Christian Principles back in Society but it seems not in Scotland. And I see that the Wee Snake Patrick Harvie who led the Hate Speech Garbage against Franklin Graham has won and that His Hate Speech will not be held at the SECC . I actually googled Franklin Graham there and at the Very Top is a Quote from The Pink News which says .
    Franklin Grahams UK tour left in tatters as nearly every venue drops Anti – LGBTQ2WXYZ. Alphabet Hate Preacher. Well I actually put the Alphabet in myself. So much for free speech eh Ed. And he’s now not a Preacher of the good news he’s a Hate Speech Preacher. Am sure he’s glad he was enlightened. God Give Us Strength against these Perverts. Sorry if I went off in a Tangent there but am sure now Wee Nic will be talking more and more about Indians. As for Brexit well let’s hope at least it changes all of these European Uman Rights Garbage and some Sanity can come back at least to our Judiciary System.

    • Happy Brexit Day. I hope to see the fruits of Brexit. We now need to pray for a good leader for our country.

      • I agree – a good leader who is not cohabiting but encouraging family values. We ought to pray hard for that.

        • Nicky,

          Alleluia to that, definitely! I’m grateful to Boris for getting us out of the EU, but that’s where it ends. We need to use our people power to get back the country in every sense, especially traditional morals, especially regarding family life.

    • Faith of Our Fathers,

      I hope, too, that being out of the EU will mean we don’t have to keep to the PC rules, although I’m not so sure. It’s become sunk into the British mindset by now.

      • Here’s Nigel Farage giving his first speech at the EU Parliament, and pointing out that their food safety standards were in need of improving. That’s interesting, since we keep getting scare stories about trade with the USA on food safety standards.

      • Josephine,

        I’m afraid your conclusion is correct – what was once considered ridiculous by normal, right thinking people, is now regarded as acceptable by the Brainwashed Brigade (i.e. majority in the UK)

  2. It won’t be long now until we’re OUT! Great day.

    I read that French President Macron has been quite unpleasant about us leaving today, which is very sad. You’d think that, by this stage, everyone would just be accepting the result, but no, some, like him, prefer to give vent to their anger. So much for democracy!

    Here’s what Winston Churchill said about democracy –

    “The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.”

    The politicians really do hold the ordinary people in contempt.

    I hope there’s no trouble on the streets of London tonight at their big party, so maybe we should spare a prayer for that intention.

    Only half an hour or so to go, so happy Brexit day everyone!

  3. We’re OUT ! Deo gratias !

    The UK is the first country (or group of countries) to leave the EU – let’s pray for true success, not simply material and economic success, but, more importantly, spiritual, religious and moral growth. For this intention, we invoke Our Lady…

    • My 5 pence’ worth:

      1) The UK NEVER should have joined the EU in the first place. Historically, the UK always prided itself on staying out of Continental affairs.

      2) The Chunnel never should have been built either. The UK always relied on its command of the sea and the air to defend itself.

  4. Freedom, freedom, freedom! Thank you, Lord, for bringing this about.

    Very poor television coverage. The guy on ITN could hardly keep back the tears as he finished his broadcast there with a hint that we might end up back in the EU (yeah, a year after hell freezes over!) but for now, sad face, goodnight! LOL!

    BBC talked to themselves as usual, with hardly any sign of the party round the corner. They’re really taking it hard. If they could impeach Brexit, I think they would!

    But we’re out, despite them! Cheers!

    • Nicky,
      Fair play to you for your bravery to watch the fake news and bbbc (biased Beeb).
      Unfortunately whilst we may be technically out of the Marxist EU, it will take generations to cast off their oppressive chains.

      Yes it was amusing to watch a fellow Irish banshee, admonishing the great Nigel. She thought by switching off his mike, she would silence him. Instead it made his goodby go viral. This McGuinness person is very dangerous, as like most frustrated females she is power hungry. Just look at Merkel, Pelosi and the queen bee Clinton.
      The biggest mistake we ever made was giving them the vote!!!
      Sarcasm madam editor.

  5. I am so glad that Britain is out of the EU. I lost my ability to vote on the matter quite a long time ago but that has never meant that I was uninterested in the matter. I truly rejoice at this outcome.
    (And I love Mario Lanza’s singing too)

    • John,

      Unfortunately, for those of us in the mood to party, the “rejoicing” is very muted over here, with the TV coverage largely lamenting the event.

      Still, we’re OUT! That’s the main thing and in time, those who didn’t want to leave will, hopefully, benefit from our “taking back control”, as the saying goes 😀

      • Editor,

        “Still, we’re OUT! That’s the main thing and in time, those who didn’t want to leave will, hopefully, benefit from our “taking back control”, as the saying goes.”

        We’re not out of the woods yet. The Government have insisted that any deal must include free trade. it’ll be interesting to see what the EU will expect as a makeweight for this. They are insistent that this can only be accepted if it allows free movement of people, which was a bugbear for many Brexiteers, and a big reason people voted to leave. ‘Taking back control’ is a wee bit of a misnomer. What do you think the EU will use as collateral? What sort of a deal do you want – or do you expect a ‘no deal Brexit’?

        • Marc,

          Yes. I’m a “clean breaker” …One business man interviewed yesterday said that he’d voted leave knowing that it may not be economically beneficial to him in the short term. I didn’t vote for economic reasons at all, I Can barely manage my own cash, never mind the economics of an entire country!

          Thankfully, we are past the arguments for and against Brexit and now need to give it time to work. The EU officials have long mocked the UK and played games (literally) long into the night to get out of playing fair in dealings, as we saw in a TV documentary aired not so long ago, so I don’t expect them to be any different now. I was appalled to see the President of France (in said documentary) speak of David Cameron’s “stupid referendum”, with the emphasis on stupid, repeated over and over, to make clear his contempt for such a democratic process.

          So, yes, a clean break and let those who want to trade with us, ask.

          • Editor,

            Never trust a Tory. They’ll sell us out. Either they’ll accept free movement of people or agree to lose some other form of control in order to gain access to the single market. I’d stick my house on them allowing EU member states continued North Sea fishing rights, as a starter – despite their promises to the contrary. I hope I’m wrong.

  6. I can’t believe it !

    Wishing everyone a very peaceful rest of your life in a free country, not taking rules and regulations from a foreign nation. Alleluia!

  7. I think Faith of Our Fathers is correct – the Communist-style intimidation and suppression tactics of the “tolerance and diversity” crowd will continue unabated, EU or no EU, until you UK citizens revolt against having perversity and insanity forced down your throats, and against being punished for your religious beliefs.

    In this case, I have to wonder whether such a rebellion against evil would be the first sign of moral growth.

    • RCA Victor,

      I couldn’t agree more but how do we do that – we get locked up for “hate crime” at the least excuse!

      I’m delighted we are out of the EU – alleluia!

      • Laura,

        Good question. Maybe large-scale demonstrations and marches? They say there were 200,000 people at the March for Life this week in Washington, DC. They can’t arrest that many!

        • RCA Victor,

          There’s no denying the fact that in the USA Catholics donate huge sums of money to the traditional cause and they turn out in their thousands for pro-life / family marches.

          Just as there’s no denying the fact that the opposite is true of the Catholics across the UK.

          One of the leading pro-abortionists publicly stated on BBC TV some years ago, that they had a very good relationship with the pro-life groups. Duh…

          So, those with the funding and reputation who should be doing the organising of pro-life marches, don’t have the will to do so.

          And those in the parishes are very content with their easy-going religion. As God revealed, through His Prophet, Jeremiah, referring to bad priests: “My people love it!”

          Quite.

    • Thank you Carlos. As for the EU being finished by decade’s end – I wouldn’t be surprised. The fact that those at the top of the EU structures have publicly expressed concern that other countries may [try to] follow our example, indicates that fear.

  8. Happy Brexit Day everyone! I feel like I’ve just got out of prison! I’ve just been to First Saturday Mass and devotions and met two friends afterwards who were in Parliament Square last night and they said it was fantastic and extremely well attended. There’s a 30 min video here for those who missed it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yl16460NN6E I couldn’t get there myself although I wanted to go, so I tried to find coverage of Parliament Square on the TV last night, but virtually every channel was wall-to-wall sympathising with remoaners. There were a couple of brief clips of the party in Parliament Square, but far more clips of remoaners – like the sad group of about 30 people who were waving EU flags outside Ely Cathedral. The TV remoaner bias was never so evident as it was last night. Anyway – keep praying to Our Lady of Good Success that the negotiations go well this year and that we will FULLY leave on Dec 31st 2020.

    • WF,

      I noticed the same thing about the TV channels. I did some “hopping” just before and after 11pm and there was nothing but doom and gloom – Gina Millar starred, it seemed, everywhere!

      Bad losers are always unattractive. Pitiable, really.

  9. PS As a postscript to Brexit please consider joining in the rededication of England as Our Lady’s Dowry:

    PPS as well as the Feast of the Purification tomorrow, it is also the Feast of Our Lady of Good Success.

  10. This thread is now closed to comments, with sincere thanks to all who contributed to mark this historic event.

    Let’s all pray now for the future of the UK, echoing the sentiments of the American President who defines true national success as fidelity to God and family.
