Bloody shovel

Don't call it a spade

Rhetoric

Is a lost art.

It shouldn’t be though. In the age of Youtube, good speeches are more relevant then they used to be. Such a complete punch in the face to the liberal order as Brexit only happened because a big chunk of the British elite was able to make its case with this kind of eloquence.

We got much to learn.

    You don’t like it but it’s the truth. Britain’s economy is also shrinking as a share of the world economy, and it will continue to shrink because of demographic pressure.

      Not saying I agree with Hannan; but the guy can give a speech.

      At any rate the UK can now potentially do something about demographics, more so than subject to EU meddling.

        The problem with UK demographics isn’t Poles, but Pakistanis or blacks.

        Also, it is not so much EU meddling which draws migrants, but rather welfare systems .Czech Republic has a shortage of labour, but the only immigrants who bother to show up are Ukrainians and Vietnamese. Seems for anyone else, working for 4€ per hour is just too beneath them.
