Brexiters outraged after crowds wave EU flag at Last Night of the Proms

Recommended Posts

The sight of hundreds of European Union flags at the Last Night of the Proms has prompted outrage from Brexiters and a call for the BBC to investigate.

Those waving the EU flag in the Royal Albert Hall appeared to outnumber those waving the union flag at the event, which is usually a patriotic display, following a campaign by pro-Europeans.

Harvey Proctor, a former Conservative MP, said it was a “disgraceful” display and called for an inquiry by the BBC, which organises and broadcasts the Proms.

In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, he said: “BBC must investigate how so many EU flags were waved & on display at The Last Night of the Proms. Disgraceful & misguided BBC messing up a British tradition.

There was a group outside handing out free EU flags.

They gave out 3000 hand flags and 120 large flags.

No wonder the far right is having a collective fit.

I believe the far left went first trying to tare down Brexit and anti-immigration and the songs at the proms like Rule Britannia. I would class the far right reaction as a reaction to it.

Far right = anything that isn't far left. 

Pretty sure everyone with a union jack brought them along themselves.. not so the others.  

Bunch of champagne Socialist remoaners singing Rule Britania.... irony on steroids.

They could most likely have been handing out used pairs of granny's knickers and they would have waved them around with the same enthusiasm.

First they wanted to keep us in the EU despite us voting out, then they wanted to ban the words to our songs at the prom, and now they have tried to fake mass support for the EU by handing out EU flags at it.

I`m surprised there isn`t a British privilege movement yet making people take the knee.

In truth, elite Remainers know little and care even less about the workings of the European Union. None of them owned the flags or the face paint or had any idea who Guy Verhofstadt was before 2016. There were no pro-EU marches before the referendum. These people just loathe the working-class Leavers who so rudely intruded on history, demanded more clout in politics, and made it slightly more difficult for them to travel to their second homes in the south of France.

The divisions between classes, races, sexes, ad nauseum, don't bother me nearly as much as the fact that those who are causing them, are laughing as we turn on each other.  It must seem like great sport to them.

It is of course the opposite. In fairness, few of us took much notice of the EU while we were a member- I certainly didn't- Google reported a spike in searches for "what is the EU?" the day after the referendum. Brexit politicians especially showed (and still show) ignorance- it seems few know even now what the SM is, or the CU. Danial Hannan and Kemi Badenoch regularly show their ignorance. Gove assured people we would still retain our rights to work, study and live in Europe after Brexit in an infamous clip on TV.

They care more about the UK and the working class than prominent Brexiters, which is why they want them to share the prosperity of the SM. Do you think Johnson, Sunak, or Rees Mogg care about poor people? If they did, we would not have out-of-control immigration (legal and illegal), crumbling schools, increasing use of foodbanks, and public services run into the ground.

And now the UK population have less clout in politics- workers and consumers rights are threatened by the "bonfire of EU law" (only held back by the insanity of such an act) and parliament is not allowed to debate the new trade deals for fear of exposing their worthlessness.

If Brexit was a success, Europhiles would be laughed at by Brexiters. Since it is the worst disaster to hit our economy in history, twice as bad as the Pandemic ( and self-inflicted to boot), Europhiles are feared by Brexiters. And with good reason- over 60% of the population want to Re-join as opposed to 30% who want to stay out in the latest polls, with the Rejoiners growing in number as each political and economic disaster appears.

And from outside Europe, you're all distinctly European and seemingly always have been, regardless of how one makes distinctions through legal speak and written laws.

All distinctions, in the end, are arbitrary and require the distinguisher to designate the parameters.

Short way from Brexit to Bregret.
