Get on with the job of leav­ing

WITH re­gards to Brexit, Mr Thomp­son de­clares that “In this coun­try any­one who en­ters into a con­tract for goods or ser­vices does so on the ba­sis they were ac­cu­rately de­scribed as fit for pur­pose. If not, the goods can be re­turned or the con­tract re­scinded.”

The Ref­er­en­dum was not a two-way ‘con­tract’ as such. It was a one-off and fi­nal choice made by the peo­ple. Brexit was a con­scious not a phys­i­cal pur­chase and those who ‘bought’ it knew ex­actly what they were get­ting.

In a sim­i­lar vein, if I place my vote for the Tories in the next elec­tion (in ef­fect an­other ref­er­en­dum) and we end up with a Cor­byn Gov­ern­ment I’m

cer­tain I won’t be able to have a re-vote on the re­sult, even though I am al­most 100% sure that his ad­min­is­tra­tion will also ‘not be fit for pur­pose.’ It is time for the re­main­ers to (as in the

words of Anna Soubry) “suck it up” and let the coun­try get on with demo­crat­i­cally get­ting us out of a dic­ta­to­rial, crum­bling EU in the best way pos­si­ble.
