HAS BORIS INHERITED A POISON CHALICE?
A lot of the general public seem to think that Boris Johnson is in for a tough ride in his aim to get Brexit signed and sealed by 31st October. Maybe the truth is that not only is this going to be difficult, it’s almost impossible.
Let’s look back at the true cause of the current situation. Before the referendum, there was a massive majority in support of remaining in the E.U. through-out the House Of Commons and the House of Lords , so that when Ministers thought that a full referendum on Brexit would have resulted in a definite no vote, all of the House of Commons loudly declared that no matter what the result of the referendum, they would support and act on it
The problem here was that the general public had a different viewpoint. They were fed up to the teeth with the EU court over-riding Parliament and the British Judicial system, with immigration at the existing phenomonal pace, with the loss of control over our own fishing waters, and the impending passing of control of our own military into a new conbined EU military force, even though there is an existing NATO and UN fighting force.
As a result of these actions by the EU, politicians must have had a fit when the Referendum results finally came in, with a majority of the public voting to leave the EU.
Now as their own words had assured compliance with the result being followed through, they were left in a dilema, how do they stop Great Britain from leaving the EU?
Firstly they ensured that they have Remain supporters in position to play for time, for example Mrs Theresa May as Prime Minister, and other Remainers in key positions in the Cabinet.
When they discovered the public would revolt if Brexit weren’t followed through, they tried another angle, by telling everyone that those who voted for Brexit did not have an understanding of what their vote meant. This caused a further uproar as it appeared that they were calling those who voted for Brexit stupid.
Parliament now had a desperate situation where there was a major gulf between themselves and the voting public. Measurements had to be taken to show the voting public that they were being listened to.
Firstly they ensure that there was an almost impossible time gap to reach a good deal.
They then made sure that a ‘No Deal’ hard Brexit was seen as an inappropriate option, and any other agreements were seen as impossible to achieve.
Once this was achieved, there was a dramatic vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister, resulting in a completely different attitude, where we now have a Pro Brexit Prime Minister, Boris Johnson. The rest of the Cabinet resigned in ‘indignation’ with the clearly up and coming changes at the top, using their resignations to bolster the Remain arguement. These resignations really came before they were fired and replaced by pro Brexit Cabinet members.
The situation now is that we now have a pro Brexit Prime Minister and Cabinet (which only proves that this could have been done in the first place – not as a last resort), with an Anti-Brexit Parliament which will still vote against any new deal brokered by the new PM and Cabinet.
The question we have to ask is: Will the House of Commons (and the House of Lords – also Anti-Brexit) ever approve any agreement now raised. The real problem may be that too many politicians have had their snouts (and all four trotters) in the E.U. trough. Those who haven’t will hope to sometime in the future, hence the very high number of Remainers in the Palace of Westminster.
The Remainers are now trying any and every reason to stop or further hinder Brexit.
The next steps of the Remainers will be to push for a Second Referendum, before the result of the first is followed through, force a general election, or force a No-Deal Brexit and blame the new Cabinet.
When will Ministers realise that if they continue to ignore the voters, who put them into office, they will soon be out of office.
Can Brexit be achieved as long as the House Of Parliament are so Pro Remain?
