No Snow Brexit

Before leaving the subject of snow, (of which there is still far too much lying on the ground outside my house), I can't help but feel that the number of people who seemingly couldn't cope with some bad weather doesn't bode well for a potential 'no deal' Brexit.  Nor, for that matter, does the apparent inability of our public infrastructure to deal with something as straightforward as snow.  But, to get back to the point, there seemed to be a lot of people who, in the face of snowy roads, just gave up - the lack of people about in Crapchester over the weekend was testimony to this.  Hardly the 'Blitz spirit' the Brextremists are always trying to invoke to get us through a possible 'no deal' Brexit scenario.  (Not that any of the people spouting this tosh actually lived through the Blitz, or any war, for that matter).  I mean, if these people can't deal with snow (and I can guarantee these snow-allergic types all voted to leave, thinking that leaving the EU would mean we wouldn't get European weather any more) then how are they going to deal with the hardships and deprivations which will inevitably follow a 'no deal' Brexit, (or any version of Brexit, for that matter)?

But really, I'm getting sink of the Brextremists and their pals in the right wing press invoking all thses World War Two analogies when it comes to Brexit.  Apart from the fact that none of them actually participated in the liberation of 'ungrateful' Europe that they like to bang on about but, in point of fact, most of Europe wa actually liberated by US or Soviet forces.  (OK, those 'liberated' by the Soviets didn't stay liberated for long, but it's the principle of the thing).  What makes it worse is when they start going about how their fathers or grandfathers  were at D Day, etc, effectively trying to take credit for the achievements of long dead ancestors.  (My grandfather was at Dunkirk, does that mean I can take credit for getting all those soldiers off of the beach?  Or, indeed, can I take credit for winning the Battle of the Atlantic on account of my father having been in the Merchant Navy and sailing on Arctic convoys?  I think not).  The worst one for this has been that idiot Tory MP from the European Research Group.  Not Jacob Rees Mogg.  The other one.  That Mark Francois.  Who has the audacity to disparage Europe when he has a French bloody surname.  It even means 'French' in French!  The fucking traitor.
