2ND REFERENDUM – IGNORANCE, ARROGANCE, AND THE ANTI-DEMOCRATS
BELOW FISHING FOR LEAVE REPUBLISH AN EXCELLENT PIECE BY FACTS 4 EU THAT NAILS THE DELIBERATLY CONTORTED NARRATIVE BY REMAINERS.
We’ve had our ‘transition period’. It started two and a half years ago and has been squandered by the current government led by Theresa May.
In all that time, the best that she has been able to present is a deal far worse than EU membership. We have variously described this as “Remain With Chains” and “The Hokey-Cokey Brexit”.
Under her Withdrawal Agreement we would effectively remain under the EU yoke – but with no say over anything – and nothing has been agreed on how the UK and EU will trade with each other, despite the PM agreeing to a £39 billion pay-out.
This shambles has very little to do with Brexit and far more to do with government incompetence and the Establishment’s betrayal of the people’s vote of 2016.
Brexit itself cannot be blamed when no-one in power was ever truly trying to deliver it.
To that of course we must add the appalling and bullying behaviour of the EU during the last two and a half years, starting with the famous “This will not be an amicable divorce” statement by EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on 24 June 2016. If that didn’t set the tone, nothing would.
THE LOSERS’ VOTE
Claims by Remoaners that “now we see how terrible Brexit is and we should vote again” are pure nonsense, as well as being anti-democratic.
Brexit is still a golden opportunity for the United Kingdom to regain its sovereignty – its control over its own affairs. This is what people voted for. It is not even remotely being delivered, nor even being worked upon.
The suggestion that the British people should be forced to go through another divisive and crippling referendum, simply because our political and administrative class have proved themselves to be incompetent and duplicitous beyond all measure, is both abhorrent and wholly anti-democratic.
DECISION MADE, INSTRUCTION GIVEN
The people gave an instruction to Parliament. It was made clear many times before the Referendum that this is how the government would treat the outcome of the vote.
No-one on the Remain side demurred, in fact they endorsed it. So, decision made, instruction given.
The issue is not, therefore, whether the question be put to the people again. Instead the issue is that the decision of the people has not been implemented by the government and Parliament.
The answer from Remoaners is that “Brexit has proved to be far more complicated than we were told.”
In fact Brexit at its core is very simple. We leave all aspects of the bureaucratic and financial quagmire that is the EU. This means that we leave all bodies, agencies, legal frameworks and jurisdictions, customs arrangements, and financial mechanisms – and we leave the EU Council.
The detail of all that was a job for Admin and Legal (the Civil Service). They simply had to be told to do it – and they were not so instructed.
IT SEEMS MANY MPs ARE IDIOTS
The team at Brexit Facts4EU.Org have listened to hundreds of hours of debates in Parliament and have read thousands of pages of Hansard, the official written record of proceedings.
Based on this research our conclusion is that most MPs are ignorant when it comes to the EU.
Naturally there is a minority which is much better informed, but these MPs ARE in a minority.
The idea that parliament and these people should decide on Brexit is – to us – scary. We have many readers who are clearly head and shoulders above many MPs in terms of detailed knowledge and the ability to make a coherent argument.
IGNORANCE IS NOT THE WORST OF IT
Of course ignorance isn’t the only problem. In a sense we wish it were, because at least this could be solved by education.
No, the problem lies deeper. It doesn’t matter how many facts and figures are produced by us from official EU statistics, showing that statements by Remainer MPs are plain wrong, they simply don’t want to hear them.
The in-brained instincts of Remainer MPs are:
EU good, UK bad
(With apologies to George Orwell.)
Over the past three years we have gradually made our arguments more and more forcefully. These arguments have been based on facts which we have provided by the thousand.
It really is time now to take the gloves off.
If MPs are ideologically hidebound from accepting a democratic decision, and from voting to implement the logical aspects of it, then they are anti-democrats and should be treated as such.
We are now discussing with other pro-Brexit groups the various courses of action which must be taken to persuade all MPs to respect the great tradition of democracy in our country.
Brexit Facts4EU.Org already has significant campaigns under way, which are being used by ordinary people in their thousands. Some Brexit groups have backed these, as we have backed them in their work. We backed all pro-Brexit groups, and promoted the work of the most prominent ones too.
Our message to the public is very clear. MPs must be told to respect and implement in full the decision to leave, or they will lose their jobs.
Perhaps it’s now time to take a leaf out of Momentum’s book, and launch local campaigns to deselect the worst anti-democratic MPs at constituency level?
