Britain is facing its 21st-century ‘Darkest Hour’ without a Churchill

Having just watched the movie “Darkest Hour”, there is no escaping the parallel between what Britain faced in 1940 – when Hitler’s Nazi Germany was running amok and poised to conquer the rest of Europe – and what we face today with Brexit. We stood alone then and prevailed, as surely we must now.

It is not in the British DNA to surrender our independence and indeed our way of life, to be ruled by Brussels.

The EU is a broken model, and as the fifth largest economy in the world, and the second largest contributor to the EU coffers, Britons face surrendering our rights to govern ourselves and becoming “puppets” of a club of European countries with whom in reality we have very little in common, and who need us far more than we need them.

Certainly there are difficulties and obstacles to overcome, but when we are finally free of Brussels’ rule and restrictions, the world will indeed be our oyster.

Yet as Britain faces this “Darkest Hour”, where is a Winston Churchill or even a Margaret Thatcher?
