Winston Churchill must be turning in his grave.

This man said: "We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air.

"We shall defend our island, whatever the cuts may be. We shall fight on the beaches. We shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender."

We shall never surrender.

Well, we are set to barricade our Cenotaph memorial to the war dead in order to stop it being vandalized by protesters. We shall never surrender, he said.

Well, we have people not only tearing down posters of missing kidnapped Jewish children, but actually, in some cases drawing Hitler moustaches and horns on them.

Can you imagine what the man who masterminded the defence of Britain would be thinking right now?

What was the point of the Battle of Britain? Of sending young men over the top or landing them on the beaches of Normandy to fight an evil that hated Jews, only to allow some people with very similar views to freely wander into Britain a few decades later?

I cannot imagine that Winston Churchill would have been content with serving Metropolitan Police officers standing idly by as hordes of men chant about jihad near banners of Muslim armies.

I cannot imagine that Churchill would have watched on quietly as tens of thousands of young men arrived on our southern coastline in boats.

I cannot imagine that Churchill would have been content for taxpayers to make a man a multi millionaire for providing emergency accommodation to new arrivals as opposed to homeless Brits.

As they put the barricades around the Cenotaph memorial to our fallen heroes so a group of angry youngsters can scream and shout to their heart's content, it is easy to feel like Britain itself is under siege.

We forget very quickly in this country the sacrifices of those who's gone before us. We forget what they fought for.

We have people who have never known a real threat, never known a real enemy, never known the kind of hardship and sacrifice that the generations before them had to overcome.

These people do not seem to understand that the only reason they can spray orange paint on stuff if they're just stop oil or wave of foreign countries flag on demonstrations on our streets, pray freely in the street.

It's because people, British people, fought and died for their right to do so. Churchill said that we shall fight them on the beaches and now our Prime Minister has to fight them on the pronouns.

Part of me quite wants to resurrect Winston Churchill and present him with a screaming blue and pink haired, non binary furry, crying about having to work a nine to five job.

But I wouldn't want to do that to the big guy. I think he'd wonder what it was all for. Don't you look to paraphrase Churchill, he said that never before has so much been owed by so many to so few.

But try to remember this in today's context, OK, if you think that Britain is great, that we have something worth protecting, that there are wrongs taking place in our society right now that need correcting, and a direction of travel that needs changing, it's time to make sure that the very vocal few don't destroy this great nation for the many.
