My immediate apologies to the fine folk who live in Folkstone ( and in neighbouring Hythe!) for my headline. A similar report about Hastings was easier to headline…

A New Battle Of Hastings? https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2018/10/01/you-live-in-hastings/

….given the historic battle of 1066, but in the absence of any outstanding event in Folkestone’s history?

I had to get the locals’ attention somehow!

However, I’m not alone in seeking to stir them up.

Leave.EU has started a campaign to oust the rabid Europhiliac pictured below.

As they put it last week –

‘We are pushing this social media ad in Damian Collins’ Folkestone seat, drawing attention to his cosying up with fanatical liberals bent on blocking Brexit.’


I repeat what I wrote about ‘Orrible Amber Rudd, so-called ‘Conservative’ MP for Hastings, viz. –

I have grave doubts about the efficacy of Leave.EU’s strategy of mobilising patriots in the constituencies of Tory ratbags to join the local Conservative Association.

I’ve explained my scepticism already.

Save Brexit By Infiltrating Tories? What Do YOU Think? 

But I am not what Red China’s Maoists would define as a ‘splittist.’

Their hearts (Leave.EU’s, not the Maoists’!) are in the right place, so if you are so inclined, give it a go.
