Q.....Really? Is that so .......... The let me tell you Mr Illegal Immigrant Sir........... YOU ARE A FUCKING IDIOT ......... The last 24 hrs have shown that the UK is not free, is not democratic.

I awoke this morning and put on the news to see just how much the EU referendum vote went through by.

And well what a surprise.

No not a surprise it was pissed all over but a surprise that 111 MP's defied the party whip and voted with there conscience.

They were

• Tory rebels Stuart Andrew (Pudsey), Steven Baker (Wycombe), John Baron (Basildon & Billericay), Andrew Bingham (High Peak), Brian Binley (Northampton South), Bob Blackman (Harrow East), Graham Brady (Altrincham & Sale West), Andrew Bridgen (Leicestershire North West), Steve Brine (Winchester), Fiona Bruce (Congleton), Dan Byles (Warwickshire North), Douglas Carswell (Clacton), Bill Cash (Stone), Christopher Chope (Christchurch), James Clappison (Hertsmere), Tracey Crouch (Chatham & Aylesford), David Davies (Monmouth), Philip Davies (Shipley), David Davis (Haltemprice & Howden), Nick de Bois (Enfield North), Caroline Dinenage (Gosport), Nadine Dorries (Bedfordshire Mid), Richard Drax (Dorset South), Mark Field (Cities of London & Westminster), Lorraine Fullbrook (South Ribble), Zac Goldsmith (Richmond Park), James Gray (Wiltshire North), Chris Heaton-Harris (Daventry), Gordon Henderson (Sittingbourne & Sheppey), George Hollingbery (Meon Valley), Adam Holloway (Gravesham), Stewart Jackson (Peterborough), Bernard Jenkin (Harwich & Essex North), Marcus Jones (Nuneaton), Chris Kelly (Dudley South), Andrea Leadsom (Northamptonshire South), Jeremy Lefroy (Stafford), Edward Leigh (Gainsborough), Julian Lewis (New Forest East), Karen Lumley (Redditch), Jason McCartney (Colne Valley), Karl McCartney (Lincoln), Stephen McPartland (Stevenage), Anne Main (St Albans), Patrick Mercer (Newark), Nigel Mills (Amber Valley), Anne-Marie Morris (Newton Abbot), James Morris (Halesowen & Rowley Regis), Stephen Mosley (Chester, City of), Sheryll Murray (Cornwall South East), Caroline Nokes (Romsey & Southampton North), David Nuttall (Bury North), Matthew Offord (Hendon), Neil Parish (Tiverton & Honiton), Priti Patel (Witham), Andrew Percy (Brigg & Goole), Mark Pritchard (Wrekin, The), Mark Reckless (Rochester & Strood), John Redwood (Wokingham), Jacob Rees-Mogg (Somerset North East), Simon Reevell (Dewsbury), Laurence Robertson (Tewkesbury), Andrew Rosindell (Romford), Richard Shepherd (Aldridge-Brownhills), Henry Smith (Crawley), John Stevenson (Carlisle), Bob Stewart (Beckenham), Gary Streeter (Devon South West), Julian Sturdy (York Outer), Sir Peter Tapsell (Louth & Horncastle), Justin Tomlinson (Swindon North), Andrew Turner (Isle of Wight), Martin Vickers (Cleethorpes), Charles Walker (Broxbourne), Robin Walker (Worcester), Heather Wheeler (Derbyshire South), Craig Whittaker (Calder Valley), John Whittingdale (Maldon), Dr Sarah Wollaston (Totnes)

Two Tory MPs acted as tellers for the rebels. They were Peter Bone (Wellingborough) and Philip Hollobone (Kettering).

Two Tory MPs voted in both the Aye and Noe lobbies. This counts as an abstention. They were: Iain Stewart (Milton Keynes South) and Mike Weatherley (Hove)

• 19 Labour rebels Ronnie Campbell (Blyth Valley), Rosie Cooper (Lancashire West), Jeremy Corbyn (Islington North), Jon Cruddas (Dagenham & Rainham), John Cryer (Leyton & Wanstead), Ian Davidson (Glasgow South West), Natascha Engel (Derbyshire North East), Frank Field (Birkenhead), Roger Godsiff (Birmingham Hall Green), Kate Hoey (Vauxhall), Kelvin Hopkins (Luton North), Steve McCabe (Birmingham Selly Oak), John McDonnell (Hayes & Harlington), Austin Mitchell (Great Grimsby), Dennis Skinner (Bolsover), Andrew Smith (Oxford East), Graham Stringer (Blackley & Broughton), Gisela Stuart (Birmingham Edgbaston), Mike Wood (Batley & Spen).

• One Liberal Democrat rebel Adrian Sanders (Torbay)

• Eight Democratic Unionist Party MPs who voted for the referendum: Gregory Campbell (Londonderry East), Nigel Dodds (Belfast North), Jeffrey Donaldson (Lagan Valley), Rev William McCrea (Antrim South), Ian Paisley Junior (Antrim North), Jim Shannon (Strangford), David Simpson (Upper Bann), Sammy Wilson (Antrim East)

• Independent Unionist who voted for the referendum: Lady Sylvia Hermon (Down North)

• Green Party Leader Caroline Lucas (Brighton Pavilion) voted for the referendum

I take my hat off to each 1 of you.

Now here's the rub and the bit you wont like. 99% of the people who vote in the country are bloody clueless. You are apathetic cretins who deserve what you get. I have long said you only get the politicians you deserve and well what you have is a bunch of self serving idiots who lie to you daily about serving there constituents, listening to the voters etc etc etc and when it comes to the crunch, when it means they have to actually put their balls on the block, they capitulate to the whips.

They would rather save their sorry skins than actually do what they said they would do when they so vigorously fought for your votes.

And British politics ............. oh how very democratic !!! How it is held as the beacon of all things fair and equal in the eyes of the world. How it is in itself a lie and a joke.

When the party whip is in place meaning no matter what is said by the public, the party can force its "Honourable Members" (don't make me sick) to vote as the party decides.

When a petition enacted by the current government to ask for public opinion is so disgracefully forgotten and disregarded, it clearly shows it was a cheap election ploy, (somewhat similar to the SNP call for an Independent Scotland but that's for another post),and basically a vote winner.

So its official. Mark the date in you diaries. 24th October 2011 ........... the day the UK showed it was not democratic !!!

How can 646 people hold 65 million to ransom like this. British public you are a disgrace to yourselves.

But 1 man off principle does stand out ............ Conservative MP Adam Holloway resigned his unpaid Government job as a parliamentary private secretary (PPS) in order to be able to vote for a referendum.

"If you can't support a particular policy, then the honest course of action is to stand down," he said.

"I want decisions to be made more closely by the people they affect, by local communities, not upwards towards Brussels.

"I'm not now prepared to go back on my words to my constituents."

Thank you Sir and good luck.

I heard on Twitter that Adam Holloway is ex-SAS. He needed to be to cope with Cameron's bully boys.

I went and checked this.
Adam Holloway was not in the SAS. He was in Grenadier Guards and rose to the rank of Captain, However his connection to the SAS was in May 2010 he wrote a private paper to the government detailing a near Mutiny when the SAS commanders refused to accept a government instruction NOT TO RESCUE 2 SAS soldiers who had been captured in Basra.
The incident occured in 2005 and the then Labour government was worried about being embarrassed should the covert nature of their mission come out.
Mike Jackson who was Chief of the Defence staff in 2005 was also signatory to the report in 2010.

The issue itself was the two troopers were seized by militant Islamic militiamen and held in a Basra police station.

Government officials were concerned that attacking an Iraqi police station would an Iraqi police station would undermine the Government’s claims that Britain was successfully handing power to the local security services.

Basically "sod em ...... let em die" which was the generic labour policy with regards to the military anyway.

Last of the Few, Adam Holloway is former SAS. It is standard practice for SAS soldiers to be identified by the unit they came to regiment from (in Adam's case, the Grenadier guards). He served in the first Gulf War.

Dear Mr Anon,

Thanks for being anon.
It always helps.

However the general jist of my blog whould perhaps give you some idea of the roots from whence I come. But thank you for teaching me to suck eggs.

And I regret he is not SAS.
