Why I’m backing the Brexit Party
✒ I HAVE just spent more than three weeks in Australia, being far away from the embarrassing debacle which claims to be the government and opposition of this great country.
It has convinced me that whatever one’s view of the Brexit question, we seem to have become as a country the despair of our friends and the laughing stock of our rivals.
Despite the referendum result and the subsequent General Election the majority of the political establishment has decided to break its numerous promises and ignore a clear democratic mandate, despite endless contrary assurances.
Most of my adult life I have been a Conservative voter and for the last 10 years a member of the party.
I cannot any longer accept the contempt displayed and the incompetence shown in a conservative government that seems determined to undermine and subvert the contract they have with most of their voters, not to mention the rest of the British people.
I am determined to reflect this exasperation in my vote, especially in the unnecessary European election in May.
For this reason I have decided to become a supporter of the Brexit Party. We have got to show this government and incidentally our equally mendacious opposition that these people no longer speak for us. I urge others of similar mind to do likewise.
