Remoaner Parliamentary Bill puts EU in charge of UK Brexit Policy

Remoaner Phil signs the motion – and signs his departure from Parliament?

We analyse yet another motion by Remain MPs to stop Brexit

Yesterday a Bill was lodged with the Speaker’s office by Remainer MPs, which effectively hands control of the UK’s Brexit policy to the EU Council. If passed, 27 leaders of foreign countries will be able to decide when the UK leaves the EU.

The Bill also delays any Brexit until 31 January 2020 at the earliest. If the EU require a longer extension then the Prime Minister must agree to that.

Naturally the Bill is more complicated than our description above, but this is a summary and in practice this is what it means. It precludes a clean break Brexit on 31 October 2019.

Observations

Our patience is exhausted, and we are sure we speak for many readers. Parliament has had over three years and two months to enact the will of the British people as expressed in the Referendum of June 2016.

And now these anti-democratic MPs want to extend the UK’s EU membership until a minimum of three years and seven months after the people voted?

No, this really won’t do. The British people have a remarkable tolerance and patience, but enough really is enough.

Has Philip Hammond just signed his political resignation letter?

Almost unbelievably, Philip Hammond was re-selected by the board of his local constituency party yesterday. Today the very least we expect from the Prime Minister is to withdraw the whip from the three Conservative MPs who have signed this motion, including Mr Hammond. Mr Johnson does not even need to wait until the vote – probably tomorrow – and he should do it as one of his first tasks this morning.

With the whip withdrawn, Philip Hammond will no longer be able to stand as the Conservative candidate for Runnymede and Weybridge in any forthcoming General Election.

We can almost hear the cheers resounding across the country when that happens.

Perhaps Mr Hammond will appeal the decision to the ‘European Court of Justice’ under whose jurisdiction he clearly believes we should all fall.

We prefer the idea that he finds himself in the political wilderness as a bitter Remoaner, living out the rest of his life without the ability to inflict any more damage on the country than he already has.
