Promises made, and Promises broken!

At the base of this post is a scanned copy of an item which we were promised would not be possible. Four-odd years ago, a Tory Prime Minister, scared shitless by a perceived looming threat from UKIP, organised a Referendum which might lead us to the ‘promised land’ of a Great Britain & Northern Ireland (GB&NI) outside of the monolith which was the European Union.

Nearly three years ago, we had that Referendum. Millions of words were written about the terrible fate which was to be our lot if we voted ‘Leave’: many of those empty threats came from that same Government which had, reluctantly, put the Referendum in place, but many more were from embedded, powerful people who just ‘knew’ that the only way to go was with their beloved Europe. And yet, and yet: 17.4 millions of British voters said ‘bollocks’ to these threats; said ‘bollocks’ to those who just knew that ‘they knew better’ than we 17.4 millions il-educated louts who just didn’t understand or grasp the huge benefits of the EU superstate which somehow were so much more clearer to the ‘Elite’.

The 17.4 millions who voted to leave were ‘deluded’. Those 17.4 millions just could not believe that a Government which had promised an ‘IN or OUT’ Referendum would go back on its word. The 17.4 million British voters, after nearly three years of backsliding, backstabbing, lying and prevarication from a Parliament which was composed of 80% MPs who were given a firm instruction from their voters, and were desperate no to obey those instructions have conspired to build a stalemate, aided and abetted by a lying Prime Minister May who has consistently planned a path towards that very stalemate.

That Poll Card states that I am able to vote in an election for the European Parliament for the North East Region. But the North East Region of WHERE? You won’t find England mentioned anywhere in EU literature. As in Orwell’s Big Brother, we were relegated to being ‘Airstrip One’ in Oceania. We are neutered by their voting rules, we are castrated by the big voting blocs in that same Parliament, so why, I must ask, should any of us vote at all? As my colleague James noted earlier, a decision not to vote is a statement wasted. If you do go, and deface your ballot, that is counted.

The old parties are counting on the collective memories of their ‘sheep’ to be dulled. They are hoping that we, as a NATION, have forgotten that we said “ We want to leave’: they are hoping that the collective sheep who patiently vote Labour or Tory will not remember that they lied to us, they are hoping that we will forgive them, because, after all, the big Parties have our ‘best interests at heart’; don’t they?
Well, if I read the runes correctly, the old parties have not got their wish. They might have gained some traction with their lies, and counter-lies, but when Farage’s Brexit Party come out trampling the grass despite those notices stating ‘Stay off the grass’, they hopefully will realise that Abraham Lincoln was so right when he stated:-

 “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

    After we leave what do we do with the trash in Parliament, and the ever growing threat of Islam?

    There’s no point voting. Even knowing the European parliament is irrelevant the real issue is that if there’s a single vote for the Cosnervatives, they’ll hail it utter support for Teresa May’s idiot policies.

    Ditto for Labour. If the Brexit party has a miracle, and installs a dozen MEPs around the country, they’re powerless.

    The only message that should be sent out is to cancel the European elections and to force Theresa May to take us out of the EU under WTO terms immediately. No ifs, no buts. No prevarication just obedience. The European elections are pointless. MEPs are pointless. We should be out. Thus MPs must learn to obey – or go.

    May has destroyed democracy and the Conservative Party – TCW now supporting Brexit Party

    The toppling of Theresa: Day 24
    “…This descent of the Conservative Party into May’s personally choreographed danse macabre appears to be blinding it to the most lethal existential crisis of their history. Perhaps it will take a historian of the party to point it out. This is exactly what Robin Harris does here. On one level, he says no more than we have been arguing for months on these pages, but his pulling together of all the strands of their idiocy, hubris and incompetence, makes for a devastating analysis.

    He asks: What is the point of the Party?..”

    Seemingly May doesn’t watch, listen to or read News; she hides from it and remains dangerously ignorant of public and party opinion

    Mr Rhys-Davies: “You, MPs, have betrayed Democracy”

    Well done John, eloquent speech and delivery. They don’t like it up em as Charles Moore has also demonstrated. Lucas et al looked very uncomfortable at truth, not platitudes, being voiced.

    Vote UKIP or DUP on Thursday and Brexit on 23 May

    If, somehow, Theresa May gets her Withdrawal Agreement through, and to do that she’d have to forge a deal with Labour, then there won’t be any EU elections in the UK.

    What will happen then?

    What do you think should happen?

    The fight will go on , regardless of the odds the so called far right will continue to challenge and Gerard Batten, Tommy Robinson, Ann Marie Waters will be leading characters in this fight because that is what it is. Clues to what we are up against, the Pope said recently Europe should become unified State, one of his favourites is the horror himself Blair. The EU has a record of IF they vote NO then they vote again untill they get yes so look forward to some scare stories and high pressure propaganda.

    We are already stuck between a rock and a hard place. Accept servitude (and eventual dhimmitude), or rebel. There could be foreign troops garrisoned here, prepared to use extreme force on British citizens. Not to forget the useful idiots who can be covertly mobilised against us, making rebellion a very dangerous move – I can’t see that happening. Would our armed services be allowed out of barracks, and which side would they support? Tory MPs and members could force a GE to clean out the Europhile traitors. Corbyn could discover his spheroids and admit he’s a leaver at heart. There might be a second referendum giving us the opportunity to vote for a WTO exit. In this democracy we, the people, are powerles Having no control over events leaves only hope and prayer.
