THEY DEFIED THE PEOPLE

THEY DEFIED DEMOCRACY

THEY ARE NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE

Cabinet abstainers

Amber Rudd, Greg Clark, David Mundell, David Gauke - Cabinet Ministers who defied the whip last night

Yesterday evening the House of Commons was in chaos

A practical Brexit Facts4EU.Org commentary and action programme

There are two main reasons why we are in this mess:

  1. Our MPs
  2. The EU

The context

Let’s briefly deal with the second reason first. For years we have illuminated the true nature of the EU by researching on and publishing detailed facts about this organisation on a daily basis.

They are in major part responsible for the atrocious Withdrawal Agreement but let’s put this to one side. Their behaviour has been appalling but then we expected that and we can do nothing about it.

Here we must focus on the other reason why the country is in a crisis - our MPs – which we CAN do something about.

MPs defying democracy

The House of Commons last night defied the will of the people. Its members even defied their own votes for triggering Article 50 and defied their own manifestos on which they stood for election as recently as June 2017.

In doing all of this they have defied democracy itself, on which the order of our modern society ultimately rests.
The fundamental compact between the legislature and the people has been broken.

This is so extraordinary that it has left many people searching for the words to describe how they feel. Certainly the anger in the country is now palpable. It is noticeable that many of those who voted Remain are also shocked.

And yet these anti-democratic demons will ride on today, dealing the ultimate blow to Brexit in further votes this evening. Well, not the ultimate blow perhaps, but they will set in train events which will mean we will not be exiting the EU on 29 March.

Ordinary people, extraordinary times

Over the past few years the Brexit Facts4EU.Org team has found itself being dragged inexorably into the world of politics, as have many readers. This is not something which sits comfortably with us. None of us are politicians, nor do we have any ambition to be. Most of us are in business and have made major sacrifices in our careers, to fight for Brexit.

Regular readers will remember the days when we simply published well-researched facts on a daily basis. Since early last summer we have had to intersperse these factual articles with more and more public campaigns. We did so because we could see what was coming. We could see that the problem simply wasn’t being addressed by one of the large organisations set up to do this.

Fortunately, more and more Brexit groups then supported our efforts, and still do to this day. We also have the active support of some key MPs and MEPs – publicly and behind the scenes. Most importantly we have had the support of tens of thousands of readers across the country who have spread our messages far and wide.

Après nous, le déluge

MPs have now effectively declared war on the electorate. So be it.

They are so isolated in their Westminster bubble that they really have no idea about reality in the country anymore. Readers have kindly sent us letters which they have sent to their MPs – and the replies they received – which demonstrate this beyond doubt.

Don’t get mad, get even

The key question is, short of storming the Palace of Westminster today which we most definitely do NOT advocate, what can we do about this?

The answer is simple. You have a voice. Use it. And please use it today, before you lose it.

Today (not tomorrow, not at the weekend) we ask you to act. Don’t assume that other people will do this, you must now step up, no matter what is going on in your life.

Let’s deluge MPs in every way possible, to make sure they finally understand the strength of feeling in the country. We also ask all Remain voters to do this. Most Remain voters are decent people – few are extremist Remoaners.

All decent Britons must act now to save our democracy and to avoid this crisis reaching a tipping point which none of us want to see.

What you must do today, please

There are several ways you could do something today, to influence your MP ahead of this evening’s votes.

  • Direct contact with your MP – see below
  • Contacting their support network – constituency association, groups they are members of
  • Deluging the media – calling and emailing the BBC, Sky News, ITN, national and local newspapers, local radio
  • Getting seriously active on social media – Facebook, Twitter, etc
  • Leafleting your local community, door-to-door and in the high street or shopping centre

Use email, the phone, hand-delivered letters/leaflets, your physical presence in the community – use semaphore if you have to - but get your voice heard.

Be British

The one thing we urge is to be polite, but please also be very direct, concise, and clear. Avoid language which could be considered abusive or likely to incite violence. Avoid trespass, and be proportionate at all times.

The key message is : “Respect democracy, do NOT delay Brexit. Respect my vote, or you and your party will lose it forever”.

How to do all of this

Everything you need to know is in our Brexit Battle Pack, endorsed by many other Brexit Groups. If you have time, read it all. If you don’t, here are some key links:

Observations

Finally, and even though we are as embarrassed to ask as much as you are tired of being asked, please donate if you haven’t already done so.

There is SO much more we could do if we had the resources that the Remain campaign have.
