Paul Embery, “Sacked for Backing Brexit.” Another Free Speech Cause?

Back in March, on the day we were supposed to Leave the European Union, there was a rally at Westminster. Emotions ran high. People had travelled to London from all corners of the UK to tell Parliamentarians how angry they felt about the extension to the departure date. The cross-party platform featured speakers across a wide political spectrum and it had one aim: to call for the referendum result to be respected.

One of the best, and most carefully listened to speeches, was the one delivered by Paul Embery, on behalf of Trade Unionists Against the EU. In it, he reiterated his position on the Brexit debate – that democracy must be defended.

Sadly this befell the work, family and community gent:

…..shortly after the rally, Matt Wrack, the General Secretary of the FBU, issued a statement which said that it was outrageous that so-called Trade Union officials and Labour MPs attended joint rallies with Nigel Farage and others on the nationalist Right. In no uncertain terms, he stated: “They are a disgrace to the traditions of the Labour movement.

The betrayal of Paul Embery. 2019.

Now, Sputnik takes up he cudgels for one of Britain foremost critics of “rootless cosmopolitans”.

Trade Unionist and Labour Activist Sacked ‘For Supporting Brexit’ – Tribunal Hearing


Embery says he was thrown out of the FBU after 11 years due to his vocal support for Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union, after addressing a Leave Means Leave rally in London with Brexit Party leaders Nigel Farage and Richard Tice in March 2019.

The firefighter and lifelong Labour Party activist argues that the justifications given for his dismissal were “contrived, unprecedented, and perverse” and was actually down to his “pro-Brexit views and activity.” he argues that the “leadership’s resentment” of his prominent position as a supporter of the Leave campaign is also to blame.

Paul Embery, a man of quick parts and a deep labour movement education, was stunned to hear, “Hours before his speech at the Leave Means Leave rally (pictured), FBU’s Ian Murray told him that to speak alongside Mr Farage would be a breach of union rules”.

Paul Embery National Organiser for Trade Unions Against the EU and ‘life long Labour activist’ had such keen eyes that he could ignore that  the organisation received money from hard right money-bags Aaron Banks.

A stalwart of Blue Labour Mr Embery was welcomed on a speaking tour in 2016  by the Trade Union and Socialist Coalition (Socialist Party and RMT) to preach in his homely toiler’s clothes against the European Union and support for a Leave Vote in the Referendum.

TUSC tour continues

Paul Embery, London secretary of the Fire Brigades Union and national organiser of Trade Unionists Against the EU, pointed out: “The EU is rampantly pro-austerity and that approach has caused suffering throughout Europe, a collapse in living standards, the rise of the far-right and the decimation of public services.”

Paul Embery is a man whose identity, who defends the  love of flag, relatives, class and creed. He charges the dissolute “Left political establishment swallowed a poisonous brew of economic and social liberalism. They have come to despise traditional working-class values of patriotism, family and faith and instead embraced globalisation, rapid demographic change and a toxic, divisive brand of identity politics.”



One can only hope that other supporters of the liberty of expression, of national populism and patriotic identity politics will rally round to defend what promises to be another Free Speech War.

We look forward to hearing support for Embery from the Labour Campaign for Free Speech.

Millwall Fans Oppose “Virtue Signalling” (Spiked) and “Moral Lectures” (Paul Embery).

Embery Protests Against Wokeism.

As a member of the Inner Party bourgeois bohemian cosmopolitan elite, after discussion with the Thinkpol it has been decided that this counter-hegemonic discursive formation will be published on our mighty on-line organ of post-colonial and Badiou studies.

Here is a discursive response:

Spiked concurs with bruvver Embery.



Britain’s leading advocate of working class identity politics Brendan Cor Blimey O’Neil opines (The Millwall Revolt. Spiked. )

Nothing horrifies the woke elites more than the noises made by working-class people. Whether they’re saying ‘Let’s leave the EU’ or complimenting a member of the opposite sex on the street, the sounds and statements of the throng often have much of the chattering classes reaching for their smelling salts. So it is no surprise that a 30-second outburst of booing among Millwall fans when their players ‘took the knee’ yesterday has led to Guardianistas across the land thumbing their thesauruses in search of the shrillest words with which to condemn this foul guttural cry of blind hate, etc etc. ‘Is this fascism?!’, they wonder out loud. Yes, dear, of course it is.

Calm down dear.

Down at the Dove and Duck they talk of nothink but cocking a snoot at “identitarian elites” and “divisive agendas of critical race theory and woke re-education.

British Ethnic Majority Association Backs Paul Embery.

We is watching you like ‘awks Embery, like ‘awks.

His newest mates:


The man himself has a moment of pleasure.

Despite years of research there is no known cure for Classic FM

This will ‘ave him spluttering into his Watney’s Party Pack.

I’m not being racialist…but

Coffee has never passed this reviewer’s lips, never mind skinny latte macchiato wankuccino; he considers quinoa food fit for hamsters; his bus driver father died when the oldest child was aged eleven leaving his mother to raise five children on a widow’s pension and the money from a part time job as a home help. It’s only necessary to make these biographical revelations because a big part of Paul Embery’s schtick is that he’s the authentic voice of the working class
