If he's a paid up Conservative party member he'll get to vote on the final 2.

He isn't.

The amazing thing is: Brexiteers still haven’t learned anything. They believed Cameron’s false promises; the believed the leave campaign’s false promises. And they’re going to believe the PM candidate’s false promises, and will end up disappointed and whining again. 

Well no: They never believed in the bus advertisement. They never believed in 'The easiest deal in human history.' They never believed the German car manufacturers would leap in to save us.

They believed Project Fear and the calamity that would befall us, which is why 'Well we survived World War II, didn't we?' is now advertised.

Funny how at the time they did not seek to disabuse the foolish claims about there being no downside to Brexit. Why, when economic hardship is what they voted for all along in their droves?

 

Now many people voted for Brexit with the noblest of intentions. Hell, I have a very close and ardent Remainer friend in the UK who will literally give you a half hour lecture on why the EU is <deleted>, before making his pitch that leaving it as of now is even worse, especially given we do not have the Euro, are not Schengen members, etc. Nor can we be forced into such arrangements. 

 

I am inclined to agree with him: What actually tangibly better things will we achieve within the next 20 years if we just tell the EU to go #### themselves, leave without a deal, stiff them on agreed payments and look elsewhere as an unreliable partner?

And here we have it, the very dangerous irony of Brexit. 

 

All that talk of bringing back sovereignty to Parliament and here's true Brexit zealot proposing to suspend Parliament to get Brexit. 

 

This is nothing less than the tyranny of the ballot box.

 

At no time in the history of the British Parliament has a politician ever suggested a winning a vote gives him the right to suspend Parliament. 

 

It has however happened elsewhere. 

The name Cromwell seems to ring a bell.

Having skipped through todays TV interviews the best candidate for me is McVey.

It seems I wasn't alone in noticing McVey

(Reminder re CONTENT rather than Poster, which in this case includes the presenter of the clip) :

Mods: Happy for this to be moved if there's a better place for it.
