In the previous post here I eluded to the fact that politicians seem to be focused on details of a BREXIT deal, party conflicts/compromises, opt ins/outs among others. Of course this is all right/proper under normal circumstances. The reason there is significant difficulties here is the flawed process that got us where we are, whether we’re talking of a referendum that was largely driven by disinformation or a non-inclusive process driving the negotiation and the continued “government” – the term used loosely here – to sideline parliament and the British people in having a final say on the deal. It is therefore no surprise that in the article below by BBC Journalist Laura Kuenssberg the term “squeak through” comes to represent precisely what BREXIT has come to represent for this government – the model if you like. The question then becomes why are some intent on jeopardising our future for generations instead of applying a common sense approach in addressing the issue. It all start by fixing the process itself not getting distracted by debates on detail because – and that’s a No Brainer concept -> flawed processes produce flawed solutions – and any “government” willing to take that gamble will eventually be held accountable because as I mentioned before if this mess continues BREXIT will be NOT be the end of their problems but rather end of the beginning – and as always it is the people who will ultimately carry the can.
Bottom line is whether some want BREXIT while others are keen Remainer’s lets make a conscious choice based on facts and take the guess work in terms of unintended consequences out of the equation altogether. So my message to our “clever” politicians out there lets NOT get too clever with our discussions until we sort out our process.
Finally, with regards to Tory MEP David Bannerman being under fire for proposing that the Treason Act should cover ‘extreme EU loyalty’ – he should be free to express his views but it demonstrates in no uncertain terms the vile ideology that has/continues to represent the BREXIT campaign – oh by the way he was referring to our allies/partners and to whom in the not so distant pass we were proud of our unified identity; and this coming from a British MEP tells part of the BREXIT story.
