Thread Name: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Yesterday felt like the best day for democracy for years. All the opposition parties agreed that they would use parliamentary process, the thing which brexiteers supposedly wanted to rescue from those unelected (a lie, of course) Brussels bureaucrats to defeat not brexit but the thing that no-one in this country voted for, a no-deal crashout.
Today, the kneejerk reaction to that by a millionaire UNELECTED toff, supported by the seven-times UNELECTED Brexit Party leader and with the grubby fingerprints of an UNELECTED adviser in Downing Street all over the scheme, is to abandon parliamentary democracy and take away all control from the people we did elect. A bloody dark day, unless you love cheats and liars.
