Only way to respect referendum is to leave
“THIS is an in/out referendum”, “if we vote to leave we will leave”, “when the British public speak their voice will be respected.”
Unequivocal commitments from a Prime Minister and a government otherwise known for its oleaginous duplicity.
During the referendum campaign the leading lights on both sides were politicians. It would be surprising if they’d avoided exaggeration, hyperbole and porky pies. However, the extra money for the NHS is still a possibility, the financial collapse and the emergency budget following the vote for Brexit have been shown to be scaremongering nonsense.
The EU has never had any intention of negotiating a giveand-take deal, and the only way of respecting the referendum result is to leave. There are dangers inherent in leaving with no deal, but even greater dangers in remaining on any terms that the EU would find “acceptable”.
In his state of the union speech, Jean-Claude Junker made it clear they intend to take more powers from the national parliaments in pursuit of a European super-state.
Their aim is to create a system of government that is independent of the electorates, rather like the monarchies of the old, and the even more disgusting regimes that succeeded them in Europe.
Would the suffragettes have made the effort if they’d known that a century later the governing class would be so determined to hand over ultimate power to an unelected alien junta?
