Thread Name: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
A truly shocking indictment of the Mother of all Parliaments.
Brought about directly by the rogue speaker and those that cannot accept the referendum result
Comres poll findings.
The poll showed that Remain voters were fed up with MPs, with 73 percent of them saying Parliament is in desperate need of reform, compared to 85 percent of Leavers.
The results also show that 73 percent of all voters believe that Parliament does not attract the brightest and best, and that as an institution it puts political point-scoring above the interests of the country.
“To say that Parliament is in desperate need of an overhaul is a gross understatement,” said ComRes’s chairman Andrew Hawkins.
In a boost to Boris Johnson, 59 percent agreed there should be an election if the Labour/Remainer “surrender bill” to force another extension of EU membership succeeds.
In the week that John Bercow announced he is to step down as Speaker, the findings are a damning indictment of his decade-long tenure and confirm that the divide between Parliament and the people is at crisis point.
It follows a shambolic end to Parliament which saw anti-Brexit MPs singing songs and waving placards in the chamber.
Last week, BBC Question Time audience member Charlie Neil received an ovation when he told panellists: “You’ve had three years and three months, and you’ve done nothing but argue among yourselves like little kids.
“You’ve got no respect for each other and you’ve got no respect for the British people. Just go away.”
ComRes’s Mr Hawkins said that the disillusionment was sparked by Parliament’s failure to deal with those trying the thwart the 2016 Brexit result.
Remainiacs would happily trash democracy rather than accept the very clear fact that they lost the referedum.
