Sign Up! Honest Lefties Launch Article 50 Petition! 


Some readers have asked why I urged support for Spiked.com recently, the ‘good lefties’ as I described them.

Help the Good Lefties! Spiked.Com’s Appeal 

In defence of my appeal on their behalf, I append below links to some of their latest output, the mere headings of which give a flavour of their commitment to democratic values.

Just because somebody holds socialist views, it doesn’t mean they can’t be democratic….

ELLA WHELAN BREXIT
AFTER THE REFERENDUM, THE UGLY SCOURGE OF AGEISM

TOM SLATER BREXIT
THE 2,000-YEAR, ONGOING FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY

ooooooooooooooooo

…and what’s more, because somebody holds socialist opinions, it doesn’t mean he or she can’t be a true patriot.

For proof of that, get this! 

The Brexit vote was barely two weeks ago, and already sections of the elite
are conspiring to thwart it.

Legal challenges have been made, MPs have launched schemes to block Brexit
in parliament, and dithering ministers seem determined to delay invoking Article 50 for as long as possible. It is now urgent that we defend the historic referendum result, and the people’s will.

This is why spiked is raising the stakes in the battle for democracy. Our new campaign, Invoke Article 50 NOW!, is demanding that the government enact Brexit immediately.
