I e - mailed my Mp who is one of the 11, to give her support, and also had an e-mail conversation with her last night, again supporting her stance Antonette Sandbachtrevormans wrote: ↑14 Dec 2017, 15:49the tory press today, particularly the daily mail ( interestingly the chief apologist for appeasement in the 30's and owned today by a billionaire not paying UK taxes) should be ashamed of themselves.
They have put forward. over the past two years , the view that brexit will (inter alia) restore democracy to our parliament.
However when the mother of parliaments seeks to demonstrate democracy as it did so successfully yesterday, then the daily mail seeks to vilify Right Honourable Members (Right and Honourable,) who have voted democratically , as being "traitors", just as they described the judges as "enemies of the people".
This is utterly disgraceful, and is closely akin to the Stalinist propaganda of the 1930s
I am confident that these words "traitors, enemies of the people etc " will be quoted, dog whistle style, by many of the less gifted, the more easily led of our populace as if it were a truth, just as the £350 million for the NHS was quoted and believed by the lemmings., and they voted for "strong and stable" because the mail told them to.
The government is frightened to let it be known what their estimate of the financial impact will be because it is so dire.
If anybody can tell me that this is the Brexit they thought they were voting for (£40 billions downpayment as a starter, collapsing pound , poor trade deals with EU and not much on the horizon with WTO, falling GDP, an under staffed NHS, nobody to pick the spuds, reduced food standards,and immigration still double the promised "less than 100k") then I will be fascinated to hear it.
I still think brexit is right, however I am not looking for a hard brexit
it is simple to me, I do not want to be part of the Euro, or an ever merging federal europe
so I see this as a fork in the path, in the future we have tha ability to diverge, converge, or run in parallel
I realised that we were in for 5 years of turmoil but believe in the long run this is the best way forward
I voted for sovereignty, so why would I not want parliment to decide, most of the dog whistles you make, would still be there brexit or no brexit
I agree many of the people who voted in the referendem for brexit, went in with there eyes shut, not me
