A General Election is the only thing that any responsible Parliament would now do. But Opposition MPs know they are going backwards on their road to No10

One of the defining faults within our political culture today is the misapprehension that power is all about being in control.

The democracy-breaking steps that have been taken by Remainer MPs ranging from former PM Theresa May to Hilary Benn and the politicians that have supported them since the 2016 European Referendum have been breathtaking in their arrogance, heavy-handedness and self-aggrandisement.

The behaviour of these Opposition MPs standing against democracy and against Brexit demonstrates that they are fundamentally the same.

What they have done and what they are doing is founded on the mistaken belief that they can and will thwart Brexit simply by continuing to keep taking and then maintain what they understand to be control.

But all actions have consequences.

The blindness with which these MPs have all worked towards the aim of defying the principles that underpin our once envied Democracy, have led them to believe that they can now do anything unhindered. Even using the Courts to cover their actions will a veil of faux legitimacy. Confidant that the tried-and-tested political act of blurring the view of the public will lead us all to overlook and then forget what they do.

The reality is that these Remain-obsessed MPs have been too clever, too many times over too long a period of time.

After more than three years of this since we voted to Leave the EU, even the most disinterested and disenfranchised members of the public are aware of what is actually going on.

Yes, there are certainly some people who voted Remain in 2016 who still support them.

Brexit has led to such a level of emotional entrenchment that for some, any action or any cost that will disadvantage the choice of the many to Leave the EU is not only acceptable but right, if it ultimately benefits the position of very few.

Very few of us now fail to see, feel or understand that the morality required of all legitimate public representatives has left the Palace of Westminster en masse.

We know, we accept and we demand that politics can and never will now be the same.

When our MPs returned after the Summer recess, there is no doubt that significant choices were made.

Faced with a Remain-led Parliament, Boris chose Prorogation as the his only way when he should have committed himself and the Conservative Party to doing everything right and necessary to fight and win a General Election this Autumn, if not when he was confirmed as Leader, then certainly when he became Prime Minister the next day.

Yet Remainer MPs, aided by a highly controversial Speaker, to stop the Prime Minister achieving his promise of a no deal Brexit on 31st October at any cost, have hardly covered themselves in any glory too.

What this dubious collective form of opposition do no realise is that their actions have already removed the tenuous ground upon which they were planning that the Prime Minister would slip.

And for all the attempts they have made to demonstrate that Boris is a Prime Minister who cannot be trusted ever to keep his word, they have instead created a bed of rock underpinning the foundations of his position – by now using the Law itself against democracy – as opposed to Boris, who at this point appears like the only one amongst a rotten barrel of political pathways prepared to actually do what it takes to lead.

If this opposition were so sure of the legitimacy of the position that they hold in the wider public eye, there is no doubt that they would go for a General Election. History has shown that any Party can win a majority when they are truly connected to and have the public on their side.

But the truth is this opposition does not have the public on its side. And what is more, they damn well know it too.

The best they can still do even now, is to return to manipulating and abusing the very system that gave them their roles by attempting yet another fudge.

In fact this Remain-addicted opposition is willing to do anything to try and prevent the public from getting the result that we actually voted for.

These non-mandated MPs truly believe that if they can get whatever conclusion it is they want – even if that is the complete cancellation of Brexit – that the problem that exists between them and the electorate today will simply vanish into thin air and go away.

It will not.

Again, and it must be repeated. The public can all see everything that these abusers of truth now do.

We can only conclude that the politicians responsible for this complete and utter mess really believe that nothing has already or will change in the future.

That with the Party-political system apparently stitched up in their favour, thwarting Brexit and consolidating their position once they have power by changing the electoral system from First Past The Post to Proportional Representation is all that they really now need do, to make the thickos they think we all are shut up and go away.

A General Election will sadly not remove the majority of politicians who should never have been given the privilege and responsibility of elected office. For that is what these broken self-serving Political Parties do.

But a General Election is precisely the step that a majority of responsible MPs in our Parliament would take in these circumstances – no matter how extreme they may seem.

Simply because in these circumstances the outcome might be well out of their control. But in a democracy where politicians take their responsibility to the electorate as seriously as it can and should be, a General Election is now without any doubt, the right and proper thing to do.
