Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
An even more useless ploy would be a snap election. It would solve absolutely nothing.
I am coming to the point of view that an election is precisely what is required. The present nest of vipers in the commons need to be reminded forcefully that the electorate expects them to honour their promises.
The referendum result requires implementation, otherwise democracy is destroyed and the executive betrays the trust of the people.
A reset is the only way forward.
Farage for PM and Rees Mogg as foreign secretary would make me very happy.
The war of Independance in America was fought on the basis of no taxation without representation. Therefore I would argue for as long as we make payments to the EU we maintain our seats in the EU parliament. To act in any other way smacks of reparations for a war we have not lost. Mays withdrawal treaty suffers from the same problem and must not stand.
