Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
I've just heard Johnson, speaking in America, saying that we have to get the UK out on the 31 October "because that is what we are mandated to do." Dunno whether to put that down to mere sloppy talk or a downright extra lie...
No binding referendum, no mandate, no parliamentary consent, no majority, no integrity, no respect for the rule of law...
Why we should ever hold this particular political promise sacred, above all the other broken ones, is anyone's guess... :-)
