Thread Name: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
seems clear to me that a majority of mps are doing their best to deliver a brexit that will not be too damaging for the UK. by doggedly insisting on going for a no-deal the ERG etc are making any brexit less likely. if we have to go back to the referendum it's obvious that the country is evenly split. we cannot ignore majority opinion for a deal that will not harm the country. those of us who are remainers could probably go along with that as long as workers rights/freedom of movement/ environmental protection are protected (personally i'm not too bothered about trade deals i want my children to be able to continue working in italy and estonia - or to return here- a return to some closed border nonsense is a huge loss of our rights, goodwill with our neighbours and a more peaceful world)
it's horrible what is happening to our country - there is no place for loud insults and threats and accusations. i may be able to continue in my job in a cumbria town if i keep my mouth shut - otherwise i am a 'traitor' and 'will end up in hospital with views like that'
sorry - strayed off my main point which was that there will never be a majority in this country for a no-deal brexit. it may suit the very wealthy and trump and putin obviously, but no-ne wants to support the risk to their livelihood, security, human rights - or continual argument. our mps are trying their best to support a more positive outcome (at last) good luck to them.
