The Brexiteers Must Prepare for the Battles to Come


Today, Saturday 30th March 2019, should be the first day of our freedom from the EU and as you all know, it isn't. I don't know what is going to happen next so I see no need to speculate at length. All I will say is that the road to independence is still a long and hard one and we must prepare ourselves for the many battles to come as these demonstrators did yesterday.

I have little desire to play the blame game, but it has to be admitted that the Tory European Research Group and its seventy or so members in the Commons are the main culprits for this. The withdrawal agreement that Theresa May signed was not perfect, but at least it got us out of the Treaty of Rome. The fact that we are not out of the treaty is due to their stupidity coupled with a willful misreading of the political situation.

In a nutshell, they thought that because Brexit Day was enshrined in law that nothing could happen to alter that. What they failed to grasp is that the Commons has a majority for Brussels and that majority was just waiting for an opportunity to pounce. As soon as the headbangers helped to vote down the withdrawal agreement, the Federasts took their chance and hey presto the Commons voted to alter Brexit Day to 12th April.

The ERG headbangers have been aided and abetted by the Democratic Unionist Party and its ten inbred members. That particular party had been bought and paid for by good British gold and having been bought, they should have stayed bought, and not tried to gain further advantage from the situation.

Yet, in spite of those two groups, the real culprits in all of this are to be found in the Labour ranks. People who had spent long decades opposing the EU voted against the government yesterday or, like Dennis Skinner, abstained. Just five Labour MPs rallied to their constituents.

It is obvious to my mind that Labour really now is the party that Tony Blair wanted to create, a party of the lower reaches of the middle class, that exists to reflect their values, rather than the rough and ready, collectivist, drink beer and shag women values of the council estates that are where Labour's people live and where those values are bred.

What happens next is anyone's guess. There is a by-election on 4th April in Newport West, a safe Labour seat that voted for Brexit in 2016. We will know more when the good people of that South Wales seat have had their say.
