TONY PARSONS Remainers still don’t get it — we want to be British and get away from Brussels
Brexit opponents and EU chiefs are trying to shut down 17.4million Brits who voted Leave with cheap insults and scare tactics and it won't work, says Tony Parsons

OVER the past two years, the 17.4million of us who voted to leave the European Union have got used to being insulted.
From the House of Lords to the BBC, from ex-prime ministers to indignant luvvies, the liberal establishment never tires of telling us that we are ignorant racist bigots who should never have been trusted with a vote.
Brits are proudly patriotic and no insults from Remainers will change that
Now ex-Labour minister Lord Malloch-Brown, glove puppet for billionaire George Soros’s Best For Britain campaign — which seeks to cancel the biggest vote in British history — claims that leaving the EU is like Neville Chamberlain appeasing Hitler in 1938.
Come again, M’Lud?
“When we try to, sort of, pull away from Europe’s problems and close ourselves off from them, they have a horrible habit of infecting us anyway,” Lord Malloch-Brown told the BBC.
“Appeasement in the 1930s, you name it. For centuries, Britain has ignored continental Europe events at its peril.”
Desperate... Lord Malloch-Brown has tried to belittle Brexit
As Ken Livingstone has proved, it is the sign of a desperate man who feels the need to bring up Adolf Hitler to make his point.
As 17.4million people could tell Lord Malloch-Brown, Brexit has never been about shutting ourselves off from Europe. Brexit is, above and beyond all else, a restoration of national sovereignty.
Brexit is about embracing the world and striking trade deals with emerging nations such as India and China, and re-establishing historic links with old friends including Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the US.
Why can’t they get it through their thick Remainer heads?
Britain is trying to distance itself from the EU... but wants to trade with other countries
The British are no longer happy to be a colony of Brussels.
The Best For Britain campaign is bankrolled by Hungarian-born American citizen Soros, and the billionaire financier really should be getting more for his money than the historically illiterate bleatings of Lord Malloch-Brown, who lacks the intellect to make 17.4million people change their minds.
And isn’t that the big problem with all those who campaign to castrate Brexit?
There is no real attempt to persuade.
George Soros is leading the Best For Britain campaign
There is no effort to understand who so many of us want to take back control of our borders, our economy, our destiny. And there is no RESPECT.
There are only pathetic playground insults.
Nobody on the Remain side shows any understanding of why so many millions are not happy for our proud and successful nation to remain a vassal state of the European Union.
But George Soros himself says that the EU is an “existential crisis.” And he is right.
Italy is in turmoil because joining the euro has been catastrophic for its economy.
Angela Merkel's immigration policy has proved disastrous for Germany
France has twice our unemployment rate. Angela Merkel has created social divisions that Germany will be dealing with for generations.
The Spanish Prime Minister was just kicked out on a vote of no confidence. And the East European nations will not take orders from Germany.
Every empire in history ultimately collapses. Why should the EU last for ever?
If there is any appeasement, then it is surely being done by the likes of Lord Malloch-Brown and all those craven Remainers who tug their forelock when Brussels treats our country with undisguised, sneering contempt for daring to want out.
EU chief Michael Barnier is not treating Brexit with the attention it deserves
Chief EU negotiator Michel Barnier has briefed that Brexit will be “only a footnote” at next month’s EU summit.
Only a footnote?
But we are one of the world’s major economies.
Without our £39billion divorce bill, Brussels is skint.
And yet these arrogant oafs continue to try to intimidate the UK.
It is the Remainers who patently lack the will to stand up to bullies, although I would never compare Lord Malloch-Brown to an appeaser of Nazis.
Because the crumbling EU is not Nazi Germany.
Because dragging the Nazis into the Brexit debate would be an insult to the six million who died in concentration camps.
And because the argument to leave the EU is compelling enough without bringing in Adolf Hitler.
Lord Malloch-Brown has done us all a favour. With his pro-EU dribblings about appeasing Hitler, the silly old duffer has demonstrated that the real thickos are all on the Remain side.
