The Time Is Now
Our Voices Must Be Heard
A Brexit Facts4EU.Org editorial
Daily in the House of Commons, anti-democratic MPs are standing up and giving speeches which deny the democratic decision of the British people reached in the EU Referendum of 2016.
This is intolerable to any person who believes in democracy. For these speeches to be made by MPs - who rely on the democratic votes of the people for their jobs - is breathtaking.
What would they say if some of their constituents demanded a re-run of the general election in 2017, in order to unseat them? They would no doubt consider this to be laughable.
Sadly, we are not laughing at their antics in Parliament. We find them shameful. Any MP who opposes Brexit and any MP who backs the atrocious hokey-cokey 'deal' which Mrs May is trying to foist on the country will have to answer to the voters, and we must all tell them that. This is not only about Brexit, it is now about the state of democracy and standards in public life.
Please help to do something about this
You can do something today. You can print out our 'Go WTO' flyer, fill in your details and send it your MP. If thousands of these are received by each MP it might make some of them think twice.
Only yesterday a former minister, George Freeman MP, announced in Parliament that he had changed his mind and would support Mrs May's 'deal' after all. Imagine if his daily postbag had been bulging with letters from constituents, threatening his job if he did such a thing? No-one can say if it would have prevented him from changing his mind, but it certainly would have made him think.
- Download the flyer / letter here, or better still write your own
- Read this, for MPs' contact details and helpful tips
- Spread the message to friends and on social media
It's up to all of us to prevent this disgrace from occurring. Please do everything you can today and over the weekend.
