Maybe it’s just me, but I detect a determination both in Brussels and among certain groups of UK politicians to keep us in the EU at any price, despite the majority vote to leave in the 2016 referendum. There seems to be a propaganda push to hold a second referendum in the hope that there will be a change of mind and so the Remain vote will prevail. I’m hearing of Catholics who say that they have changed position amidst so much talk of a threat to jobs, border with Ireland and so on. The propaganda tactic might just work, with a second referendum giving a very different result.
The question for us, then, is this: assuming that there is some “Catholic interest” in the matter, should Catholics be contacting MPs to strengthen the Brexit vote – or, in the event of a second referendum, are Catholics, like the ones I mention above, likely to vote in the opposite direction, the second time around? Are Catholics so easily brainwashed?
To remind ourselves of the reasons why a majority voted to leave in 2016, watch the video below, and then visit the links to our two previous discussions on this topic.
Check out our previous discussions here (asking how Catholics should vote in the referendum) and here (discussing the truth about the Scottish vote) before sharing your opinion with us. Should Catholics stand firm and fight to have the democratic wish of the peoples of the UK, carried out, as expressed in the referendum on 23 June, 2016? If so, why? Are there any specifically “Catholic” reasons to support Brexit?
And in the light of news reports today, where Prime Minister Theresa May repeats her belief that “no deal is better than a bad deal” – do you agree? In light of the intransigence of Brussels, I’m inclined to go with that. Take me to the cliff edge anytime (in a manner of speaking!) What about you?
