Here’s a provocotive op-ed article by Jonathan Freedland, published in the Guardian. He argues that one year on, the certainties of the ‘leave case’ are collapsing. Importantly, he concludes that we’re no longer shackled to that verdict.
Since the election, Hard Brexit seems to be doomed, and the UK parliament will correctly play a pivotal role. Whilst, most agree that a Soft Brexit now looks most likely, it’s a small jump to say that, ‘No Brexit is infinitely better than a Soft Brexit.
So what’s stopping a complete reversal?
Well, firstly, the right-wing of the Conservative Party have been deeply wounded by May’s election defeat. They’re keeping her in office for now, rather than risking a replacement, which would precipitate an early election and loss of government to Corbyn’s Labour or a left-wing coalition.
But the real villains are on the Far-Left not the Far Right. Confused? Well, Corbyn’s Labour Party is supporting Theresa May‘s call for a Hard-Brexit. But we need to peel the onion further. The Economist reminded us that Jeremy Corbyn is lukewarm towards Brexit and is more concerned with ‘domestic revolution’ in the UK.
Let’s face it, the Labour Party has been hijacked by Far Left radicals for whom revolution is more important than democracy. But the Conservative Party has been taken hostage by hedge-fund managers and foreign newspaper owners. So we have a stand-off between the Far Left and the Far Right, neither of whom are interested in democracy or what’s best for the majority of citizens in the UK.
Surely, it’s time to write to your MP and demand debate in parliament to protect democracy and reverse Brexit?
