Who on Earth would trust these treacherous weasels with any sort of “negotiations” with the European Union?
Senior MPs opposing a no-deal Brexit sought assurances from the EU that their bid for a three-month delay would be granted, it has emerged.
European leaders were sounded out before MPs, including the “rebel alliance”, passed a bill, which is expected to receive royal assent on Monday, forcing Boris Johnson to ask for an extension. However, those involved said there were no guarantees in a process that was changing by the day.
It comes as the rebels, including former Tories who have been thrown out of the party, prepare for a legal battle in case the prime minister attempts to defy a law forcing him to ask for an extension on 19 October. The UK is due to leave the EU on 31 October, but the new law would envisage a Brexit extension until the end of January 2020.
The sounding of EU leaders over an extension has angered Tory Brexiters. The Conservative MP and former cabinet minister David Jones said: “Senior EU figures gave private assurances to British MPs, as a consequence of which they supported the surrender bill. This confirms the level of EU interference in our internal affairs and makes the need for Brexit all the more pressing.”
No wonder they’re terrified of an election. It’s becoming abundantly clear that the Fixed Term Parliament law was passed specifically in order to prevent the British people from being able to replace an openly anti-democratic parliament like the current one.
Notice how the various national legislatures across Europe have gone from being popular and democratically elected to openly election-avoidant and anti-democratic. This is another indication of the social mood trend having peaked and reversed. We are winning, whether you recognize it or not yet.
Apparently, their treason didn’t do them much good, though.
France today said the EU will not agree a Brexit delay beyond October 31 amid claims Boris Johnson will defy the law and ‘sabotage’ an extension if he is unable to strike a deal with Brussels.
It’s important to remember that a national leader with the people behind him doesn’t have to follow the rules imposed by the bureaucracy. The so-called “law” is nothing but a mutually agreed-upon illusion, so once mutual agreement fails or the illusion evaporates, there is no more rule of law.
And the Prime Minister does appear to be playing for keeps. One can’t defy convention and then affect surprise when others do the same in response.
John Bercow’s role in blocking Brexit has sealed his fate as Commons Speaker, one of Boris Johnson’s most senior Ministers revealed yesterday. Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom today confirms for the first time that the Conservative Party will defy convention and put up a candidate against him in the next Election.
