Certified Super Geniuses Search For Vegan Lion

The worst thing about Britain's professional right isn't so much their monumental arrogance, so much as the fact they have so little to back it up. They act like they're the Albert Einsteins of politics when it's blindingly obvious they're not even Albert Steptoe.

Hence why we end up with fiascoes like this.

Yes, indeed: the type of people who approve of an unaccountable, elitist, micro-managing super state tend not to vote conservative anyway, and vice versa. You may think that's kind of obvious but clearly these guys didn't. Then again, these chumps managed to blow an election against Evil Santa (he's got a beard, likes the colour red and comes into your house with his sack to seize your prezzies for redistribution to the workers).

I'm thinking their claims to genius status might be looking a little tenuous...

To the point: professional conservatives keep giving the base patronising lectures about the importance of 'electability', even while continually screwing up actual elections. No wonder they're Remainers, what else could they be?

Remoaners Are The Wile E Coyote Of Politics

These guys seriously don't get why they lost. Hence, why every time they unleash some supposedly brilliant plan to destroy Brexit, they instead end up dropping a huge anvil on themselves.

A bunch of Julians and Cressidas carried out an investigation into the Leave campaign, then presented it to themselves, carefully considered their own evidence and announced that Leave campaigners were all witches. 

Honestly, at this rate the International Guild of Banana Republics is going to be writing to the Remoaners telling them to take it down a notch: seriously, guys, you're embarrassing hard working Presidents for least try and set up some kind of kangaroo court for plausible deniability

Yes, they've achieved their ambition of allowing the BBC to use the phrase 'fined by the Electoral Commission' every single time Leave is mentioned but they've also summed up perfectly what's objectionable about Remoaners. 

Like I've said before, the Remoaners are telling us what they really want for Britain. They're telling us they quite like the idea that anyone who falls foul of the Snootocracy gets dragged before some Committte for Public Safety and denounced as an enemy of the people. 

Meanwhile, the rest of us prefer our quaint British traditions like free trials, the right to confront your accuser and a jury of our peers.

This is not a small thing. In fact, it's the whole debate in microcosm. Either the citizen is free and the state has to make a case to intrude on that liberty, or the state is free and the best the citizen can hope for is to avoid catching its eye.

Ultimately, the point is that one side supports meaningful liberty, the other is arguing about what figure goes in which column.
