Brexit was always going to be difficult, difficult to win and difficult to get the mainstream political parties and their MPs to accept the result.
The people of Britain won the Brexit vote, it took a lot of effort by a handful of people who were willing to stand up and be counted in the face of a tidal wave of press and political resistance.
But the people was seeing how bad things had gotten in Europe, seeing how their democracy was being undermined and seeing how their right to sovereignty was being gifted away piece by piece made a historic stand.
The political class of Britain all banded together and rather exposed themselves as what they are, they are in the pockets of Big Business, the EU is an anti worker, anti country political organisation that favours big business of the rights of the people. The populism which is sweeping Europe will engulf it, the European dream is shattered; the elite got greedy.
Some MPs and others are fighting to stop the will of the people being enacted, in London, the case goes before the UK Supreme Court, this will be a historic constitutional legal case to be sure in front of told a panel of 11 justices.
The referendum result was for to leave the EU; this also means to leave the single market which allows freedom of movement.
Is migration a good thing?
Yes, it is if the migration policy is fair and controlled; the recent articles in the Times and elsewhere talking about the rise of the ghettos, flag a major problem.
Politicians like to talk about diversity and multiculturalism when the reality on the ground is segregation. In place like Blackburn, in central Lancashire, they are getting known as a prime candidate for the title of Britain's most racially segregated community.
Do you remember the photo ops of refugees where the politicians have their researchers find a ‘rocket scientist’ or a ‘doctor’ to give the impression that every refugee is a good person and how they will benefit our society? The idea was simple, to create an image of politicians as caring and at the same time use fascism under the guise of political correctness to silence people’s voices.
Here is a glimpse of what the politicians have done, it is a story like any other rape story in Europe expect the victim is a medical student and daughter of a top EU official.
Angela Merkel has opened the floodgates and rapists, murderers, terrorists and robbers have all come to Europe claiming to be asylum seekers. Grown men pose as children to get round the rules and access Britain, as one of these people said, British people are so stupid.
Maria Ladenburger was only 19 years old, she had a promising future in front of her; someone should remember her name. She was brutally raped and then murdered by an Afghan who came to Germany. Even the boss of Germany police union said her death would have been prevented had the open door asylum-seeker policy of Chancellor Angela Merkel been less lax than it is.
As regular readers know, I am not impressed by our political class, we don’t have great politicians anymore, we don’t have people of stature that others look up to, we get a bargain basement X Factor rejects, third rate politicians which are basically shit.
In Scotland, we have Nicola Sturgeon packaged up as a ‘superwoman’ by the SNP and assisted by the press who fail to be critical enough of her and her party, her career is littered with failure.
The latest gimmick that the Nationalists are running with is ‘welfare and homeless’, it is getting near Xmas, so they are playing the role of the concerned citizen, something which Nicola Sturgeon has never really managed to master.
After 9 years of SNP Government where was the SNP’s help for people being sanctioned beyond getting a few cans of baked beans in a food drive for foodbanks? The last time the SNP were collecting food for the needy they were also campaigning at the same time for elections, do you see how gullible they think people are, how much they hold them in contempt? Where was the SNP opposing the EU on Zero hours contracts or indeed on anything of significance?
Can you name a really big SNP policy on anything of real importance; you might struggle with this because Holyrood is full of third rate politicians of the same political bankrupt class. All the main parties of Holyrood supported the EU Remain campaign, apparently a few MSPs in private didn’t and even fewer said so publicly, those coming from the Tory ranks.
Nicola Sturgeon has such contempt for the will of the people much like Labour MP Owen Smith; you have to wonder what the differences if any, other than independence are they? Sturgeon has joined the anti Brexit bandwagon in London to be noticed, her ‘case’ is non existent but then since when did that matter to her, her deal is getting her face in the press and claiming to represent Scotland which she doesn’t, she represents a branch of government which deals with devolved services. London is her way of trying to say to the World that she is a ‘statesman’, she isn’t!
The referendum gave UK Government ministers the ‘right to trigger Article 50’, the High Court ruled that MPs should be given a say on triggering Brexit, one of the judges on that Court was part of a pro EU group.
Baron Thomas, who is the country's most senior judge has sparked a constitutional crisis when he, alongside Sir Terence Etherton and Lord Justice Sales, ruled in the High Court the Government cannot trigger Article 50.
Referendums give people the opportunity to decide on matters of extraordinary importance which affect the country. If the will of the people doesn’t matter, why do we have elections to a body if those who are elected don’t carry out the wishes of the people who have spoken in a referendum?
If the entire process is a now sham, isn’t there an argument that new political parties are needed?
Attorney General Jeremy Wright told a panel of 11 justices at the Supreme Court that triggering Article 50 is not being done on a “whim” or “out of a clear blue sky, everyone is clear that Brexit means Brexit, if the UK Government doesn’t deliver on this, there is a legal remedy called the ballot box. I am not opposed to parties having input into the process, but that doesn’t mean that MPs should block what the people have already decided.
The Attorney General said starting the UK’s two-year exit using royal prerogative powers was the “logical conclusion of a process in which Parliament has been fully and consciously involved”.
Parliament voted to allow a referendum, all major parties signed up to the democratic process and to accept the result, it is therefore wrong that some people should now feel they can cheat people out of their result.
Attorney General Jeremy Wright added:
“None of this means, of course, that Parliament will not be closely involved in the process of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU over the coming months and years.” Mr Wright told the justices in London that the case was of “great constitutional significance in which there is understandable and legitimate interest both inside and outside this courtroom”.
The High Court in my opinion got it wrong; the verdict in my mind was tainted by having someone with Baron Thomas who has a history which questions his impartiality sitting judging this case. He should have recused himself and stepped away, but he didn’t, hence we are at the UK Supreme Court.
How will this matter end?
As Attorney General Jeremy Wright said:
“if this is all about standing up for Parliament, I say Parliament can stand up for itself.”
I think that the UK Supreme Court should uphold the appeal by the Westminster Government, not because life would be much simpler but because this is the right thing to do. If they don’t they will put Britain into a constitutional crisis which will possibly see the need for a General Election, and if after that we still cannot get Brexit, then democracy in the UK is effectively dead.
At that point, the worst political secret will be firmly burnt into the minds of the British people, that elections are more or less a fraud and that those in the main elected do not represent the people but their own narrow self interest.
It will be the realisation that we are ruled by proxy by Big Corporations with politicians as their ‘front men’.
Finally, please take the time to watch the video which was flagged up to me, it explains rather aptly how politics is done in the UK.
