BREXIT BILL FALLOUT: Bolton; Don’t Play Games With The British People!
Last night, Parliament had it’s say and chose to strike a blow for so-called ‘soft-Brexit’, however, the popularity of a Parliamentary petition calling for Britain to leave the EU immediately and with no deal shows also that the British people are determined to have their say.
It was submitted by Jack Taylor, a voter from the Midlands. He wants the Prime Minister to give up on the departure process set up under Article 50 of the EU’s rulebook and to unilaterally declare that the UK has left.
Explaining his logic he said;
“The EU looks set to offer us a punishment deal out of spite, insisting we pay tens of billions of pounds as part of a ‘settlement fee’ and continue to accept the jurisdiction of EU courts even after we’ve left.
“Meanwhile pro-EU MPs in Labour, the Lib Dems and the SNP, along with unelected Lords, are attempting to block Brexit, the longer we remain a member the more opportunity they have to interfere.
It is certainly hard to disagree with that after last night. Henry Bolton, UKIPs leader, said the popularity of the petition, achieved without any formal endorsements, shows how “concerned” the British public are by the current state of affairs:
The message is – take us out of the EU, Mrs May, don’t play games with the British people.”
It is not just Mrs May that needs to hear that message after last night but the entire political establishment.
