The fact is this.
The UK has voted to leave.
The EU wants the UK to remain.
So we have to negotiate the best deal possible as we leave and take control of our own country once more.
But the EU bureaucrats can’t afford to be seen to give us ‘special terms’ despite how much damage it may do to their countries’ economies and businesses.
They only think in political terms and they are preparing their political traps.
Recent history tells us – when a vote goes the wrong way from a Brussels’ point of view, citizens should be given the opportunity to ‘correct their mistake’
That idea has now been outplayed by the British Supreme Court ruling on British law ensuring that the British parliament is sovereign.
If we’d listened to the likes of those who were calling for a second referendum (the likes of Tim Farron, Nick Clegg, the Sturgeon woman and co’ - who who seem to believe that their individual wisdom trumps the combined wisdom of the British voting public; and are doing WHATEVER IT TAKES to try to thwart Brexit) we will be disadvantaged. Remember, it’s not in the EU’s interest to agree a mutually beneficial compromise. If we were to hold a second referendum, based on the ‘deal’ - they would offer the UK the worst terms they could imagine. Then sit back and wait while the second vote overturns the first referendum. They would get what they wanted all along, the U.K. remaining trapped in the EU.
However, now that the Supreme Court has delivered its verdict: 'Only parliament can grant rights to the British people and only Parliament can take them away" it now goes to Parliament.
It must also mean that the SNP who are threatening another Scottish independence referendum and those calling for a second EU referendum, have been hoisted by their own petard, as highlighted in the Supreme Court ruling that the EU cannot make or take rights away from the British people unless it is done through Parliament.
The UK Parliament is sovereign!
Now it’s all on MPs to vote on triggering Article 50. There can be no further legal redress sought by the ‘remainers’ who have been short-circuited by this decision.
Listening to the popular media, many MPs (who not long ago voted 6 to 1 in favour of a referendum) are now announcing that they will still vote against Brexit and ignore the democratic process, regardless of what their constituents voted for!
Well, I say let battle commence on the understanding that constituents and local party associations deselect any MP who tries to thwart the will of the people.
