Are we ready for Project Fear 2.0?

Date published: 30 July 2018


Remember the countdown to the Millennium? - when we were all chillingly warned that the end was nigh with computers all over the world shutting down and planes dropping out of the sky.

Remember how none of that materialised? And recall how most of us didn’t believe the doom mongers anyway?

I believe that the same healthy scepticism will meet the plans apparently afoot in No 10 to scare us witless over Brexit.

The Europhiles still can’t get their heads round the fact that the majority voted to leave, nor that that was democracy in action which must be respected.

With the failure of the first round of Project Fear, preparations for us leaving the EU without a deal are being weaponised as part of Project Fear 2.0.

We are told to take comfort from the fact that there are contingency plans to stockpile food and medicine. Not designed to scare us at all!

Bizarre tales have already emerged about no more sandwiches; dairy products becoming expensive luxuries; planes being grounded and a super-gonorrhoea epidemic.

But I believe the British people are very level-headed and will see through such blatant scare tactics to make us think that Theresa May’s ’soft’ Brexit proposal is the way forward.

In fact the more the Remainers try to intimidate folk the more it will backfire and harden the resolve of Brexiteers to leave, deal or no deal.
