Brexit and why I'd consider voting for Boris Johnson

6 comments  Add a comment

I've been monitoring the whole Brexit debacle for a while now with more than a passing interest.  I thought long and hard before I made the decision to vote and voted to leave the European Union, along with more than half the country I hasten to add.  The majority of the country voted to leave and the politicians in Westminster have a very important job to do, to deliver what we voted for.

They're not doing this though, they're behaving like the bunch of scheming bastards they are - excuse the strong language, but this has gone on for long enough!

Boris Johnson seems determined to deliver Brexit and yet is being thwarted in the effort by MPs who claim that 'no deal' would be a bad thing.  Personally I'd rather get it over and done with, deal or not, and I don't believe that the powers in Europe have any intention of making any concessions for the UK.  I also don't believe that Jeremy Corybyn and his cronies or the one trick pony "SNP" are rattling their sabers for the good of the country either.  No, they've got their own agenda and that will always be a priority no matter what they say.

I've never voted Tory in my life. I certainly won't vote SNP or Labour any time soon and the Lib Dems are as much good as a chocolate fire guard.  I suspect there is going to be a general election soon and I hope it's sooner rather than later because I think this needs to be done.  Brexit has to happen by the end of October.

Maybe I'll vote Tory this time.  My parents would be shocked and disappointed if they were still around.  But it's for the good of the country, right?

Guess I'm not voting for them either then, not that anyone does.

Former Conservative MP Sam Gyimah joins Lib Dems

Just goes to show the level these politicians will go to after being sacked, to save their skin. And they ask us to vote for them.

It's an absolute disgrace what's going on at the moment.

"MPs, including Tories expelled from the party, are preparing legal action in case the PM refuses to seek a delay to Brexit."

When it's time to vote just remember who they are.

While I disagree with the result of the referendum, I appreciate that the vote (though over three years ago) was in favour of leaving and that the UK should have left the EU, note the past tense.
The problem is that over those 3+ years it has become apparent that those who voted 'Leave' had very different ideas about what that should mean, ranging from those who would like a wall built around the coast and all airports closed, to those who thought the UK would "easily" get the "best trade deal" (both quotes from the Leave Campaign).
I'll give you an example of the wooly thinking, I saw a claim on a forum that (paraphrasing slightly) "Brexit would mean the end of migrants crossing the Channel". How so? The UK is upsetting the French by leaving, so somehow the UK Border Force is going to get BETTER co-operation from those across the Channel? The French could easily start towing the boats of migrants en masse out to the middle and letting the UK authorities pick them up, the French will be rid of their unwanted guests in and around Calais.
The problem was that any negative point raised in the referendum debates was screamed down at "Project Fear".

The irony is that Cameron proposed the Referendum to spike the rise of UKIP, it had more to do with Tory Party ambitions than democracy, then assumed that the result would be "Remain", because he thought that was the right result. Cameron (and the Remain Campaign) just did not grasp the feelings of large parts of the country.

The current chaos is because referendum's do not fit well with parliamentary democracy. Our MPs are "representives" not "delegates", therefore they are not there to merely vote on the whims of their electorate.

I think everyone is just fed up with the delays from MPs who obviously didn't want Brexit so tried everything possible to delay or even overturn it.
Perhaps we should all vote Brexit party , let's not forget Conservative PM David Cameron took us into this debacle to begin with , then Theresa May's poorly negotiated deal which would have been a disaster , now Boris Johnson who can't find enough support in his own party for what he wants to do never mind across parties.
And who does the Daily Mail blame for this? Jeremy Corbyn! You couldn't make this up , if you took this to a Hollywood producer they'd say this whole premise is too ridiculous to be believable
