To Dream the Impossible Dream – Against All Odds

This was the betting at lunchtime yesterday. These were the best odds available, courtesy of Oddschecker:

referendum-day-bettingIt looked like Remain were heading for a landslide, but I had already earnestly prayed for a Leave vote, so I traipsed out on a seemingly pointless quest to follow that star of freedom and I dared to dream the impossible dream.

“The one perfectly divine thing, the one glimpse of God’s paradise given on Earth, is to fight a losing battle – and not lose it.” G.K. Chesterton

James Delingpole thinks he has the answer for the dream coming true,

Firstly, God was definitely on Brexit’s side — which is why he arranged all those downpours in London (aka Remain Central) yesterday. He knew that Leavers would turn out come hell or high water whereas Remainers — being pampered, smug, and overconfident — would have decided not to bother.

Secondly, the public were persuaded by the Leave campaign’s joyously optimistic, positive message, which contrasted so markedly with Remain’s.

Thirdly, on this occasion democracy worked. The British people sensed the momentousness of the occasion — a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a real difference and shake the status quo by depriving the anti-democratic elite of their ill-gotten gains — and seized their chance.

I never thought this would happen.

Well it has! Against all odds.

While nippy sweetie Nicola Sturgeon wants a new Scottish ‘Indy’ referendum so that the EU can sink its teeth deeper than ever into us north of the border,  the result has ignited real independence fever across the Continent and calls for their own referenda for a chance to be free from the slavery of globalism.

I guess our total net EU contributions must have been around £100 billion. Do you reckon we’ll get a ‘Thank You’ note?

Me neither, what with the cost of stamps these days. Anyway…

Take a look at us now: onwards and upwards.

    Something the British have been quite good at.

    Yes. We had God on our side. It looks like, despite the rise of humanism/atheism, we have been given another (last?) chance. Notice how the young, liberal, PC, brainwashed masses are asking for a second referendum because this result doesn’t suit their expectation of a worldwide socialist Utopia.

    You can see from the map that areas with high student populations, plus Brighton Pavilion, of course, plus most of London, have the highest proportions wanting a re-run.

    The old duffers many of them probably secretly despise and who never attended uni probably have more political nous than they have. To be fair, they have been conditioned to believe in utter rubbish.
