Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Well done, Stanron, for swallowing hook, line and sinker the disingenuous and dishonest claptrap of the Johnson regime. Prorogation can be for one day. The Queen's Speech can follow the next day. But prorogation is lasting nearly FIVE WEEKS. It's blatantly obvious to all bar the brain-dead that this move is a kneejerk reaction to the unity shown by all opposition parties yesterday, who declared that they wanted to take the thoroughly democratic, legislative path towards trying to prevent A NO-DEAL BREXIT. Not brexit, Stanron: A NO-DEAL BREXIT. That which not one person in this country thought they were voting for, not even you if you're honest. If you have the Tory numbers in the House, Stanron, then what are you afraid of? If you haven't got the Tory numbers, you know why? Because some of your side will defect. Not our side, Stanron, yours. Without Tories, we haven't got the numbers. Without defectors from you Tories, we can't do it. It's what we call Parliamentary democracy, Stanron, that thing that you lot are supposedly trying to rescue from the clutches of the EU. But it's there and useful only when it suits you, it seems. Open your eyes, old boy. You and your side are the ones in all this suffering from the severest form of democratic deficit. We want our ELECTED representatives to have their say. You want your UNELECTED leader to stop them. Ironic, really, when you've been rattling on for three years about how undemocratic the EU is, eh?
