Thread Name: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Here's where we are, MkII: 37% of the electorate voted leave. Almost as many voted remain. The two issues now causing the most angst, the Irish border issue and the prospect of no-deal, were hardly on the table at all during the referendum campaign. The biggest brexit issues were simply not upfront. They were certainly not on the ballot paper. Yet now we have an UNELECTED prime minister leading a MINORITY government who thinks he has a mandate to push through a no-deal brexit, so much so that he is prepared to suspend Parliament in order to obstruct what our ELECTED representatives are elected by us to do. He has packed his cabinet with lackeys, liars (see my post of 05.41AM) and brexit ultras in order to mute his own party's opposition, knowing that almost all Tories are far more interested in protecting their own greedy, unwashed arses than in the country's interests. Well let's hope that that little "almost" will be enough to nobble him. And let's hope that the positive coalition of opposition parties that came about on Tuesday will hold.
