Get Brexit done – but don’t fall into the elephant trap of thinking Boris Johnson’s deal is it

October 22, 2019 Leave a comment

One of the most surprising things over recent days has been the speed and apparent ease with which the MPs who we had been relying on as the policemen of the Brexit process have fallen in line behind Boris Johnson – it seems, simply, because he tells us that his deal and Brexit are the same thing.

Just for the purposes of clarity, Johnson’s deal is not Brexit.

So by all means, hashtag ‘lets get Brexit done’ as much as you like.

But don’t be under any illusion about what Brexit always was supposed to be (i.e. what the British People Voted for) and what Boris’ deal will mean it is.

They are simply not the same thing.

Give way to May today; give away the UK

December 12, 2018 Leave a comment

Following on from my earlier Blog today, there are now reports circulating that May will promise to stand down before the next General Election – with the inference that the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement will go her way.

This plan sounds great for those who think the whole issue is about May.

It isn’t.

It’s about delivering Brexit, and Brexit will not be delivered if whatever we end up with is delivered by May.

The chances of the next General Election being over three years away are deceasing all the time.

The likelihood is that a General Election will be called in 2019 as a response to a question of confidence after May’s Brexit Withdrawal Agreement falls – if the Conservatives are bought off today by the ridiculous idea that May promising to stand down will actually remove the problem with her ‘deal’ in any meaningful way.

Her departure then at that point, would leave a new Conservative Leader dangerously exposed and with no time to develop and implement a new strategy before a Campaign begins.

Put simply, in this chain of events, May is setting up her successor to fail.

However, the very chilling reality is that with the endorsement of the Parliamentary Conservative Party today, given on these terms, May’s idea of Brexit is increasingly likely to be approved.

With UK sovereignty and independence, along with our ability to remove ourselves from this ridiculous plan treacherously given away, the Conservative Party as we know it will be at an end. When the Country wakes up to what our Politicians have done, as they inevitably will, we will have no choice but to abrogate our Membership of the EU unilaterally, potentially under very unfriendly, if not violent terms.

All this, just so Theresa May can go to bed at night feeling like she was right all along because she got her own way.

Please wake up.
