    What government?

    We don’t have a government at present and to call them right wing would contravene the trade description act.

    We desperately need a right wing government to take back control and re-instate British values.

    Anything that is anti-EU will do for a start. They are the ones that have been manipulating May and her so-called negotiators.

    Grief you sure learn from Trump and Johnson; lying is second nature. You never answered this question and you know you didn't.

    Churchill was not a proponent of British values as he hoped to see a United States of Europe one day. Oh well...

    Not one where the UK would be a vassal state.

    It's such a huge contrast of how Britain/UK used to be then, and looking at what it is now.
    I can't even imagine how the Brits can even handle and stomach an environment of intense surveillance and governmental interference with people's everyday public and private lives and activities to a point where you'd have to say it's insane.

    All what's left to do is to create a people's workers re-education / workers camp set aside for the wayward.

    The Brits and the UK in general would probably be better off going back to a complete monarchy and handling control all back to the queen and its future Kings and Queens.

    The authorities would rather spend money on surveillance systems than have an effective police force.

    Sounds like he wanted a federal Europe to me. He deliberately used the USA as a direct comparison.

    "United States of Europe"

    Whether Churchill—who has been dead more than fifty years—would agree with this decision is impossible to say, and we should not try. But what is clear is that the European Union that now exists is not the one that Churchill dreamt of, being more federal, more bureaucratic and less democratic.

    How convenient of you to reach the conclusion that we should not try to extrapolate what Churchill might have wanted as soon as you realise it's impossible for you to quote him as saying anything that might support your side of the argument.

    Yeah you do. Unfortunately.


    They're pro-austerity, anti-unions, pro-populism, anti-democracy, pro-privatisation and pro-nationalism. They're definitely right-wing.


    Good luck getting 2% Robinson elected. Or do you now back the Brexit Party?
