Posts Tagged ‘No Deal Brexit’

The watershed moment for the future of British Politics has arrived. Will our Politicians open up Pandora’s Box to pursue their moments of glory, or will it be the acceptance of truth and the implementation of democracy that will be how Brexit comes to be defined?

On Thursday 23rd June 2016, the British People, by a solid, democratic majority, Voted for the UK to Leave the EU.

There was no division of choices within the Leave option on the Ballot Paper.

No label on the Ballot Box that said it was in fact Pandora’s and that Leave could as such end up being Remain.

There was no get out of jail card provided for Remainers to trash democracy and arrive here today thinking that it is they who will have the last laugh.

img_2450But while our weak and rudderless Prime Minister has exploited the given trust of the People to deliver a non-deal which would deliver everything less than Brexit itself, it’s failure today and its being outed for the lie that it actually is has itself given the lie to everything that Politicians will now try to pass off as Brexit. That is other than Leaving without anything that resembles a deal – which otherwise will be at any level nothing less than capitulation to Brussels and Remain in all but name.

Politicians are dreaming up an entirely different reality if they think that Brexit is itself an opportunity to play out some kind of bizarre Spartacus moment.

My plan is Brexit! No – MY plan is Brexit! NO – MY PLAN IS BREXIT!

There is only one real Brexit and that’s Leaving through OUR OWN DOOR, the one that only we, on our own have the ability and genuine purpose to create.

Not one of the EU’s making. Not one in which we have agreed what is no better than a day pass. A reality in which we never really leave, function as a satellite thereof, but in reality FOREVER Remain within.

Whilst the ineptitude, incompetence and ignorance of our current Political masters will now make the immediate process unnecessarily tough, the only way to achieve Brexit properly is to Leave without a deal, on WTO terms and get on and embrace our future as one which is not and never will be in any way dependent upon approval from any EU Executive of Member.

We must accept the way forward is where we will find our future, not backwards. We are and will soon value ourselves as a great Independent Nation and can deal with whatever we need to, alone and with friends who are not determined to undermine us, come what may.

MPs who cannot respect the Will of the People should step aside and make way for genuine representatives who will

January 7, 2019 Leave a comment

You’ve probably heard the saying that absolute power corrupts absolutely, and so with it the suggestion that as the power of an individual increases, their morality and therefore ethics diminish in a like amount.

We should all be grateful that this is not generally an absolute rule. But in terms of today’s Parliament and the majority of the Members within it, I regrettably find myself being far from sure anymore.

Like many others, I have tapped away at my keyboard over recent weeks and months, at best bemused and at worst very sad at the state of British Politics and in particular what the activities and motivations of most of our MP’s has actually become.

That Brexit is the event that should never have happened in the minds of those who were Elected to serve us is already a given. That they are so hell-bent on overturning the democratic will of the people – even if it boils down to acts which are designed to deceive us all, gives a very telling insight of how dangerous to our democracy, the behaviour, self interest and lack of ethics and morality on the part of our politicians has actually become.

Yet to take debate and argument to a level where action will be taken to actively prevent the Brexit that the People Voted for, way surpasses the political malaise that has been present for a long time before the Referendum Vote and tells us that very few of the politicians elected to represent us actually understand what representation means and what the Representation of the People Act was itself brought into being for.

Holding up government might well prove to be a brilliant idea if you are a US President who has no concept of the pain caused and genuine loss of such action to others. But it is not the action of any individual or group of MP’s who paint themselves as being servants of the people, as respecting democracy and having the best interests of their Country at the heart of what they do – if they actually mean it.

To even attempt to derail the delivery of a democratic mandate – not because their fears have in any way been proven, but because they are simply too gutless and irresponsible to put their own ideas and plans to one side – is a travesty of democracy and of justice. They are simply trying to enact a decision that was never theirs to decide.

MP’s en masse are now making their position very clear. A position that shows they are incapable of carrying out the responsibility that has been entrusted to them. They are failing all of us, our Country, our future and it’s time that all of those MP’s who cannot see the will of the British People for what it is, however unpalatable they might themselves find it, should resign AND step aside.

We do not need a Parliament constructed of little other than the self-serving.

The UK has far too many issues that need redeeming, a prosperous non-EU future to embrace and far too many opportunities for good to be identified and acted upon for all of this to be put at risk by the lack of vision, integrity and care for others that is the only direction that all of these self-representatives are inclined.

No Prime Minister, Brexit wasn’t just about immigration and pretending so is as ignorant as it is to call Leavers racist

Brexit Problem

Like many, I’ve been wrestling with what makes Trident Tongued Theresa tick in recent weeks.

Treachery on a level which would have once seen her hung, drawn and quartered is now firmly in the open, even if it is being skilfully denied.

But whether the Prime Ministers actions are borne of simple stupidity or something far more sinister, trying to even understand why she has been so set on a UK sell-out and where exactly her direction is anchored has been quite an eventful ride.

Finally, with a welched Brexit made manifest within a Withdrawal Agreement that has zero resemblance to the UK leaving Membership of the EU and will tie us in even more firmly than the majority of people had voted Remain, we see No.10’s spin focusing on the result of restricting immigration. And therein we see how the lie was given to May’s form of Brexit, and where she has placed her focus and misplaced her aim.

To have done so underlines the reality that the Prime Minister has never understood the mechanics of Brexit. Why so many more voted Leave, rather than Remain. Why perception definitely is everything, but that each and every perception is different and that immigration may look like a simple thing to understand, but that like the whole plethora of issues surrounding Brexit, it is multifaceted, multilayered and has always had no defining link between a binary choice of Leave vs Remain.

To have and to continue to ignore all of the other concerns and by this I mean just those which are documented and tangible, strikes of ignorance on the part of the Prime Minister and those around her in the extreme.

It certainly gives value to the question of how someone with such a closed-off view of what is going on around them can get elected into a public role, never mind taking control of all our destinies from that highly coveted office, buried deep within No.10.

To have determined to negotiate the do-called withdrawal on the basis of settling the immigration question itself certainly answers a lot of unsettling questions. It certainly explains how the vote to leave could have been misread so very badly by those in power and interpreted as an opportunity to bind us more closely to a foreign power – especially when led by people who cannot employ impartiality when it comes to their own views prioritising Remain.

But it also makes clear that the whole negotiation process has been flawed. That the Withdrawal Agreement is democratically worthless. That the whole ‘deal’ must now be binned and replaced with a process and conclusion which brings all sides together. One that prioritises the UK, it’s people and businesses, but does not allow the motivations of any one or another become more important than what is right and proper, balanced and fair and considered in terms of the consequences and knock on effects for years and generations to come.

The UK voted Leave and whatever the words which form the document covering our departure, Leaving MUST be a process that simply works for us ALL.

Brexit will be a problem for everyone until the focus switches from agreeing a deal with the EU to actually leaving it.

Instead of allowing fear to rule the future of the UK any further, the opportunity to return the process of Leaving the EU should be returned to the place where it should have been started.

That of accepting that we will have left the EU, and all that remains is to agree the terms under which the UK and the EU will thereafter conduct a relationship, as we would do with any other Foreign power.

We must not in any way continue to entertain the false idol of a special relationship with our European neighbours being necessary, just because of geography.

Globalisation has already more than demonstrated that we are otherwise much closer to the other side of the World, to places beyond entire Continents and great Oceans.

We should not place ourselves open to the undue influence of other countries who’s primary aim has always been to subjugate us by any means. To remove us as competition and to take away any form of influence which encourages us to believe and trust in everything that makes us British; instead, aiming to condemn the people and businesses of the UK to a permanent position of not knowing who or what we actually are, but always making us feel that we are continually somewhere in between.

At 23:00hrs on 29th March 2019, the UK must leave the EU, adopt the WTO rules that it always should have, and only then begin to build up its new relationships with each and every Country of the World, side-stepping self-interest and building a future which is good for all of us. One which doesn’t just serve the interests of the EU and its disciples – but for us all is a genuine ‘win-win’.
