Labour shifts to Remain, Conservative Government already was for Remain

Where is the outrage?

Jeremy Corbyn’s letter to the PM on Tuesday proposes that the UK remain in the EU, to all intents and purposes. He went further than he has gone before (see next article).

Theresa May’s meetings in Brussels yesterday mean that her non-Brexit Withdrawal Agreement will remain untouched.

The best she can hope for will be some changes to the language of the non-binding Political Declaration or a comforting side letter about the Backstop. No changes are proposed whatsoever to all the other unacceptable elements of this ‘deal’.

Brexit Summary

Parties in Parliament refusing to accept the Referendum result, and reneging on Brexit

  1. Mrs May’s Conservatives
  2. Mr Corbyn’s Labour
  3. Mr Blackford’s SNP
  4. Mr Cable’s LibDems
  5. Mr Dodd’s DUP
  6. Ms Saville-Roberts’ Plaid Cymru
  7. Ms Lucas’ Greens
  8. Mr Bercow (Speaker)

There is now a clean sweep across the House of Commons. None of the above are supporting a clean, true Brexit, and they are not respecting the largest democratic vote in British history.

What about pro-Brexit elements?

Some readers may point out that certain elements within the above groups are in favour of Brexit. Unfortunately their actions demonstrate that whatever their views, they will capitulate and support a non-Brexit Brexit. In particular we are thinking of the pro-Brexit ERG wing of the Conservative Party and the DUP in this context.

The ERG have been negotiating the ‘Malthouse’ solution, which extends the period under which the UK effectively stays in the EU but with no say over laws or anything else - and which extends the period of huge annual payments - until the end of 2021. That’s 5½ years after the UK voted to leave.

The DUP will accept anything which keeps Northern Ireland wedded to the UK.


Where is the outrage?

The reason for all of the above is that the majority of MPs voted Remain. Some then declared that they “respect the result” but their actions show that they remain Remainers.

ERG members tell us that we must accept that “there just isn’t the arithmetic” in the Commons and that they are being politically pragmatic.

No, sorry. They failed to address this robustly over the past 2½ years and the result is the majority of MPs thinking they can ride roughshod over a democratic vote. The ERG had their chance and failed.

There is not one major news outlet in the UK which backs a clean, true Brexit. Like MPs, they are either for Remain or - in the case of papers like the Sun and the Daily Telegraph - they are for Brexit but will swing in behind a ‘compromise’ deal.

This just leaves the people. The people who voted Leave. The electoral majority.

Bored to death by Brexit

After more than 2½ years of incompetence and deliberate anti-Brexit actions by the Government and the Civil Service, most people are fed up to the back teeth with Brexit. They want it done and over with.

We suspect that the general populace have been so ground down that they are bored with the majority of announcements coming out each week. They don’t take them seriously because it’s all such a mess. Why concern themselves with an item of Brexit ‘news’ when nothing happens after it?

One more push

The simple truth is that the only way to influence Brexit now is via massive public pressure on these anti-democratic MPs.

We call on every single pro-Brexit organisation in the country to urge people to write to their MP, saying that if they don’t vote for a clean Brexit (and the #GoWTO option is now the only possibility) then they will permanently withdraw their votes, starting at the next General Election.

This weekend we will update our #GoWTO campaign with a new letter for people to send to their MP. We will step up our continual efforts to persuade other groups to back this with real, effective promotion.

To readers who write to say “what’s the point?” we would simply say that right is right. We were given the biggest Referendum in British history to decide the matter. We decided. Now it must be delivered, come what may.

Let's not forget that this campaign has political backing, as well as support from other pro-Brexit organisations.

4 headlining MPs, 3 MEPs, and 15 pro-Brexit groups are all for a clean, World Trade Brexit.

Here at Brexit Facts4EU.Org we will fight on. We refuse to let the arrogant and anti-democratic political class ignore the people yet again. We must rouse those ordinary people who have almost been bored into submission, and let them see that there is a way to turn the tide.

Now is our last chance. Let’s take it.
