Fred Kite's address to the Brexit workers
“Brothers and Sisters!” shouts Fred Kite, the Shop Steward of the Union of Brexit Facts4EU.Org workers.
[A Union Convenor urgently whispers in his ear.]
“And, quite obviously, all those who self-identificate theirs selves as non-binary and who utilise alternative nouns and pronouns,” he quickly adds.

“You ’as voted to down tools this day. The Members of your Union’s Organising Committee fully respect and support your rights. It’s outragious – monstrious I might add - that while the Remain campaigns receive millions of pounds from organisations funded by the agencies of foreign capitalists, you is treated as cheap labour!”
“Comrades,” [he glances at the Senior Convenor and gets a nod for using the safer term], “I’m sorry to 'ave to inform yourselves that Management…” [boos from the crowd] “…'as informed your Union’s Organising Committee that insufficient funds is available to pay even the minimum wage. We find this to be completely unacceptable as well as being contraventionous to the labour agreement we struck with Management in June 2016!
“What you is bein' paid is not commensuratative with the toil you is doin' each night and day.
“Management is wilfully jeropodising the safety of its employees. Your Union is behind you - right, left and centre!”
“As such, and in accordance with Union rule 3.4 sub-section (c) regarding the temporary withdrawal of labour, we find Management to be in complete contemptuousness of your rights!”
“And furthermore, brothers and sisters - er, I mean comrades - we is determined to fight this iniquitiousness action on the part of Management.
“Your Organising Committee ’as been working with the yuman rights lawyers to bring your case to the European Court of Justicity and the European Court of Yuman Rights. However I must tell you, brothers and sisters… and all of you of other dominations… that they ’as been disappointing in their responses.”
[Groans from the crowd.]
“No, do not be downhearted dear friends! We is still taking the affirmeratory actions which is required. Your Organising Committee ’as just gone step higher! We 'as contacted his Lordness Andrew of Adonis and we is sure he will take up your case and get you the money you deserves!”
[Perplexed expressions from the workers……..]
“And now comrades, I must leave you, because I ’as a lunch with Keir Sir Stammerer at the Soho House restaurant establishment in London.” [He punches the air with a clenched fist and leaves the stage.]
For those who have never seen the iconic 1959 film “I’m alright, Jack” starring Peter Sellers, Ian Carmichael and Terry-Thomas, the humour above might be a little mystifying. This clip might help.

However we have a serious point
Many thousands read our work. Very few donate to keep us going. We are enormously grateful to those who do pay for our services but we need many more to do so. On a good day we can hit 350,000 voters on social media. This is more than most newspaper articles.
The Rejoin campaign is extremely well-funded. Imagine if we disappeared tomorrow. Who would fight them?
Please do what you can now. It’s quick and simple. You can become a member for as little as £3 per month. If you can afford more, you get more services from us. One possibility would be to go straight for VIP access to the Brexit Index – the largest repository of Brexit-related reports in the world.
Alternatively you could just make a one-off payment. Whatever you do, Fred Kite, Senior Shop Steward and Convenor of the Collective of Brexit Facts4EU.Org Operatives would be most ‘appreciating’......
And finally, our Aussie friends....
Tomorrow is Australia Day. Given that we are in a light-hearted mood, we would like to wish all our Aussie readers a very happy Australia Day which starts in a few hours (because of the time-zone difference) and celebrate with them with one of their cultural classics. :-)
We must get our reports out there
Our facts-driven reports take far longer to research, write and produce than many people realise. If they were easy, readers would see other organisations also producing these daily.
However, there’s little point in the Facts4EU.Org team working long hours, seven days-a-week, if we lack the resources to promote them effectively – to the public, to MPs, and to the media. This is where you come in, dear reader.
Facts4EU.Org needs you today
We are a 'not for profit' team (we make a loss) and any payment goes towards the actual work, not plush London offices, lunch or taxi expenses, or other luxuries of some organisations.
We badly need more of our thousands of readers to become members, to support this work. Could this be you, today? It's quick and easy, we give you a choice of two highly secure payment providers, and we do NOT ask you for further support if you pay once. We just hope you keep supporting us. Your membership stays anonymous unless you tell us otherwise.
Please don't assume that other people will keep us going - we don't receive enough to survive and we need your help today. Could you help us? We rely 100% on public contributions from readers like you.
If you believe in a fully-free, independent, and sovereign United Kingdom, please join now by clicking on one of the links below or you can use our Support page here. You will receive a personal, friendly ‘thank you’ from a member of our team within 24 hours. Thank you.
