Dominic Raab – still working for the away advantage

These are a couple of comments on a piece written by Dominic Raab (him again) in Canada’s The Globe and Mail:

“We realize you are desperately seeking new friends after the Brexit debacle. May we suggest that a chaotic exit from the EU, due entirely to Tory incompetence and greed, may put off rather a lot of potential trade partners?”

“If these madmen actually do manage to push through a no deal Brexit they will be desperate and the negotiating advantage will be Canada’s”.

As one of the authors of Britannia unchained, where it was suggested: “The British are among the worst idlers in the world. We work among the lowest hours, we retire early and our productivity is poor. Whereas Indian children aspire to be doctors or businessmen, the British are more interested in football and pop music”. Further Britons were “idlers . . . obsessed with the idea of the gentleman amateur”.

I suggest pots and kettles are obvious.

And this stuff is really a good example of what psychologists would call projection.

The might also conclude, as do I, that the lunatics have taken over the asylum.


  1. Andrew (Andy) Crow -

    I’m in Scotland where we have a lot (tens of thousands) of Polish workers. Many of them come here to harvest crops, particularly soft fruit.

    One of my neighbours is such a Polish migrant and when I suggested the Poles were popular amongst employers/farmers here because they were regarded as so much more productive and industrious than the native population she thought it highly amusing.

    Do we British really need our politicians to be constantly abusing us. Is this how they think we should be motivated, when they themselves are some of the laziest and most incompetent unproductive parasites on Earth ?
