I promise this is not a send-up and these people are for real.
Watch the video embedded in Kerry-Anne Mendoza’s tweet. You won’t need to go very far into it to get the gist:
I don’t think this was meant to be a parody, but it’s the perfect roast of the “yah-yah” anti-left.pic.twitter.com/MkeegLcujo

Alice and Beatrice Grant (for those are their names) have been getting roasted online ever since this went out.
Nope… not a word.

I do hope so, but probably not- looks like they were not brought up to feel shame, only entitlement.

They are genuine Farage fangirls who, let’s be honest, don’t seem to understand much of what they’re on about.
This Mail article gives a little more background:
“The two young women are in fact sisters Alice and Beatrice Grant, aged 17 and 15, privately educated granddaughters of the late industrialist and former Governor of the Bank of Scotland Sir Alistair Grant.”
Oh right, so a background like that should give them a qualification in … Capitalism, not Socialism. I’d have thought so, anyway.
“The girls argue that what Britain needs is a swift No-Deal exit from the EU. In their eyes, Nigel Farage is a hero for standing up for Britain and fighting for British independence from the ‘corrupt EU’. And while they are still too young to vote, they have little time for those who doubt they are the genuine article.”
The piece goes on to say the girls like to spend their spare time looking for vintage clothes in charity shops. Personally, I see them more as looking in shops like “I Saw You Coming” from Harry and Paul. On the subject of Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse, here’s one Twitter user’s response to Alice and Beatrice:

Here’s a comment on their style of autocue-reading (if it was even that sophisticated).

Obviously, as Brexiteers, they’re fans of UKIP’s new leader, Dick Braine, too:
It would be beneath This Writer to suggest that the only reason these girls have been put forward as faces of Brexit is the fact that they’re easy on the eye.
But we can all agree – can’t we? – that it wasn’t for their intelligence.

The other response is:
If “Capitalism works” why are there a million people using foodbanks in Britain today? Not working that well is it? Why did the Government bail out the Banks using our money? Why did the Banking system collapse in the first place, was it because of Socialism? I don’t find these idiotic spoilt brats in the least bit funny, I feel bloody angry. When was the last time they ate food they found in the street? Bring back the Guillotine!
Greed. Not that I’m an advocate of capitalism, I think it harmful but socialism won’t eliminate greed; it has been with us since at least Biblical times.
Then, Zippy, that’s why we must have Government policies that curtail greed, not ones that promote and encourage it and create an environment where greed can prosper. That’s where Socialism comes in to level the playing field.
My head couldn’t take more that 10 seconds of that. I’d love to meet them in a pub and ask them to describe socialism without the cue cards, although I doubt they’d be seen dead in anywhere I drink, Farage fans or not.
Presumably those two ************* ****** don’t use our (socialist) NHS? It’s obvious they can’t string together a cogent sentence rather than reading from rote cards or an autocue.
Leaden delivery from their autucue and strangled attempts to smile ensures the failure of this attempt at fear mongering. I wonder how much they were paid?
Anyone who believes this rubbish is a moron. These two children are the daughters of a plutocrat. They do what daddy tells them…!!
Most of what they said against Socialism I would say about this capitalist state but is sounds to me like they are getting Socialism which cares for all mixed up with communism.They need an education. Obviously their private school let them down some what.
Methinks that thou art correct.
I am commenting rather late, but thank you Mike for sharing this. It’s given me a much needed laugh in these dire times! The grand daughters of Sir Alistair Grant lecturing us about socialism indeed.
My only disagreement with you would be describing them as “easy on the eye” – bloody scary to me!
