‘THE EU MADE US A VASSAL STATE!’ FARAGE ATTACKS TV HOST CLAIMING BREXIT ‘MAKES NO SENSE’
Mrs May and all Tory MP supporters of her appalling Chequers approach to Brexit are betraying our country.I cannot think of any other time during which the elected parliament was as unrepresentative of the majority of the electorate as now over such an important constitutional issue as Brexit. Democracy, and with it a peaceful, settled society, rests on very flimsy foundations when there is no written constitution as in the U.K. It relies on the trust of the electorate that a majority vote will be respected and acted upon, that a majority vote in any election/referendum will be accepted by those who lost, but above all that parliament is the servant and not the master of the people and will do their bidding. Either a vote is respected in its entirety or democracy dies.In that event then all bets must be off as to how the governed will react. It is to be hoped that sufficient sensible MPs can understand that and accept, whatever their personal views on this matter or however they’re manipulated by party whips, that they have no democratic alternative to delivering what the majority have clearly demanded. Should they refuse, then the flimsy foundations will give way, the system under which we are governed will be irretrievably broken and we are all in for a potentially very unpleasant ride.If Brexit is not delivered, Chequers does not deliver, then this country will enter very dark times.
