The Tory buzz expression upfront the entire campaign was Get Brexit Done and the people fell for it in droves instead of just reading the text – reading the text is too difficult for the lazy and disinterested who nonetheless have the vote.
This is NOT Brexit Johnson proposes, not in the least and that will become apparent around June.
People will suddenly start saying, ‘But we were promised Brexit,’ just as they did post-May in 2017 and then acted all surprised when the fisheries did not come back, when we were still paying billions, when the EU justice system was still in control. [Please don’t tell me the Eurocourts are different to the EU, they are tied together as previously shown many times.]
The good thing about this result is that Corbyn communism was rejected, Swinson lost her seat etc., so that part was good.
But mark my words, those who voted Tory – what you thought you were voting for – Brexit – simply is not what was voted in … and to answer the question, ‘But was Johnson not preferable to Corbyn?’ … well of course he was, not too many in the country think the left is anything but a disaster … but that’s not the point, is it, as we’ve been trying to get across the whole time to readers? Th point is that Johnson has no intention of delivering Brexit.
Could the result have been otherwise? Not after the pig’s breakfast Farage made of it all but he’d lost major donors, he did not have a party infrastructure, he had not put a coherent manifesto up front and centre. He was manoeuvered into supporting one side of the Red-Blue two-party choice which people seem unable to get out of their heads.
The analogy has been used many times of the boat going down the river, crashing first into the Tory wall, then across to the Labour wall, then across to the Tory wall and so on, down the river.
And that’s where we’ve been sold once again, just as in 2017.
Ho hum, I did not stay up for it. It’s 5:41 now. So be it until June. The header words “No Deal” are just as relevant now as they were before last night.
This is my personal view of course. Julia and Mike may have something different to write. The good thing about OoL is that this is still possible in social media.
