  1. Can we really thank God for those in authority, when those in authority, as Benjamin Disraeli pointed out long ago, are merely puppets for banking dynasties and their fronts? The real authority is quite hidden….and is a usurper, a usurer, and Luciferian.

    I thought the linked article was excellent (and very intriguing, with its reference to the “ancient ruling families of France, Germany, Austria, Italy and Spain” – wow!). Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for this gentleman’s speech, which I found not only weak by comparison to the article, but weak and Pollyanna-ish on its own terms, and very ineffective.

    Yes, the British should beg for God’s mercy, but how about mentioning the Rosary as God’s weapon of choice?

    • RCA Victor,

      I completely agree with your analysis. The man in the video seems to use prayer as a kind of liberal catch-all, inoffensive, just nice words, whether on prayers of thanksgiving, petition etc. It was interesting enough to hear, but not at all inspiring, and as you say the Rosary is God’s “weapon of choice”. However, I put my curser over the C symbol at the top of the video and it’s from the Christian Institute which is not a Catholic organisation, so he will be a non-Catholic.

      I thought the Regina article was excellent, and selected this bit as being most important, IMHO:

      After the EU specifically rejected the idea that it had Christian roots, many of these people became genuinely alarmed. Since then, they have been monitoring the myriad of regulatory ‘fixes’ — especially concerning education — which demonstrated that the EU’s self-styled ‘masters’ were aiming at shaping a society where ‘the family’ simply didn’t exist.
      And it has worked. Basically, wherever the EU has reached, the birthrate has plummeted, and the Faith is all but dead.

      It is thanks to the EU that we now have the immorality we see everywhere, from fatherless families to LGBT families and the promotion of the latter in our schools, including Catholic schools.

      I voted OUT and if they force a second referendum, I will do so again. Last night’s votes in the Commons gives us some hope, though, that we will manage to get out on 29th March. I’ll be including that intention in my own rosary until that happens.

    • RCA Victor,

      Taking the video as a whole, I thought the speaker meant thank God for those in authority because we have given them power over us, democratically speaking, and so we should be thankful that we can do that. But I’ve maybe misinterpreted.

      I do agree about the Regina article, that was superb. I found it all very helpful, and very clear.

      • Josephine,

        At this late hour, to be precise in our thanksgiving, I think we should be thanking God for our chastisement, which comes in part through corrupt, puppet leaders. In response to the depraved state of the human race, His Majesty could have just swept us all away in a conflagration….

  2. I’m convinced that this will only be won by prayer and penance (and Masses being offered!) because it is essentially a spiritual problem. The EU is the result of ‘Russia spreading her errors throughout the world’ and is the new form of godless totalitarianism. I think it comes straight from hell. It was founded and pushed through on lies and deceit, and has been plagued with fraud and corruption from the beginning. We prayed the Rosary immediately before the votes last night, and thanks be to God, all of the amendments were defeated. If Yvette Cooper’s amendment had got through, that would have been a real blow. A friend of mine thinks they’re trying to string it out until the Lisbon Treaty comes into full effect and then there will be no leaving at all. Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us. Please consider having Masses offered, stepping up the prayer/penance and fasting for a good Brexit result (preferably leaving with no deal!) Once the EU shackles have been removed, at least the UK then has a fighting chance.

    • WF,

      Well said. I would also add that the EU is part of our chastisement, which is being levied upon us both within the Church and in the secular realm.

      Have you ever read a book called Philip Dru: Administrator? I never read it, but I’ve read numerous references to it, and quotes. It was written by Col. Edward House, who was President Woodrow Wilson’s NWO “controller.”

      The book outlines a form of totalitarianism which has been followed faithfully ever since: tyranny by bureaucracy. It developed in the USA via the Great Depression, which was allegedly engineered by the Bank of England and the US Federal Reserve Bank, and it’s happening in the EU.

  3. Westminster Fly,

    “A friend of mine thinks they’re trying to string it out until the Lisbon Treaty comes into full effect and then there will be no leaving at all.”

    I’d no idea there was a clause preventing member states leaving the EU – that’s shocking!

    I agree, we need to pray very hard to get out while we can – roll on 29th March.

  4. I wasn’t keen on the video, really, because it was just a very superficial commentary on prayer in general but not Catholic prayer, but I did find the Regina article very good indeed. The reminder that it is down to the EU that we have the laws encouraging family breakdown, abortion etc. is well timed. If we are forced to have a second referendum, I think it would be good to print off and distribute that article to family and friends. I think I was the only member of my own family who voted “leave” but that article might help others to understand better why they ought to vote “leave” if we have to go to the polls again, which I sincerely hope we don’t have to do.

  5. All of the Brexit bickering reminds me of this line from Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien.

    “I am not altogether on anybody’s side, because nobody is altogether on my side” – Treebeard

    note: I voted to leave.

    • CBucket,

      I’m 200% on the LEAVE side and I am not going to weaken just because the remainers are upping their game. They’re determined to keep us in the evil EU and so I know that they are definitely NOT on “my side” – so JRR Tolkien doesn’t apply here, not to me anyway.

      I agree with Nigel Farage in this short video piece, he’s got Theresa May taped, well and truly.

      • To me, “Treebeard’s Law” (TM: me) still applies here. Yes, the EU is evil but the UK is still evil too. When they passed the 1967 Abortion Act they were not in the EU. For me, it is simply a case of “better the devil you know than the devil you don’t”.

        Remember also, Treebeard did side with the good guys in the story.

        • Cbucket,

          Treebeard did side with the good guys in the story.

          Yes, but only after he personally witnessed the wholesale devastation and destruction of his fellow creatures by Saruman’s orcs. Do you think there are enough Brits who understand the devastation and destruction wrought by the EU? I hope so.

            • CBucket,

              It was Lord David Steel, Liberal MP who brought the 1967 Abortion Act into being and who is now saying it is “ridiculous” that Northern Ireland doesn’t have legalised abortion.

              That doesn’t change the fact that the EU is responsible for pushing policies which have led to a complete moral breakdown across Europe and here in the UK.

              Have you read the Regina article at the top of this page, in the introduction, just under the video?

        • CBUCKET

          You forget that as a free country the UK could, one day, repeal the Abortion Act. However, as a member of the EU it would never be allowed to do so. Two wrongs don’t equal a right! Britain did introduce Abortion by its own volition but Brussels has ensured its permanence in law both here and in every other EU member state.

    • Michaela,

      I agree. If Nigel Farage were conducting the negotiations, Barnier & Juncker would not be running the show. Nigel Farage works with the Leave Means Leave group so…

      For information…

      Today in Glasgow, top of Buchanan Street, near the statue of Donald Dewar, there will be a Leave Means Leave stall, with a group (not, however, likely to include Nigel Farage!) distributing literature and speaking to passers-by. So, any Glaswegians planning to go into town this afternoon, might want to offer them support.

  6. I am delighted that Yvette Coopers “delay” (read “de-rail”) Brexit bill failed to pass, I had really feared it might.

    What is interesting is the paucity of the remain arguments and the paltry lack of support for remain, beyond the remain-core of politicians and the media. Most others who speak for remain – the CBI, Governor of the Bank of England etc – are all either EU funded, or have close links with EU institutions. All they offer is hyperbole. The way they blether on, you would think we will have to chalk our door frames come the leaving date.

    In contrast, the leave arguments are very strong regarding sovereignty and opportunity – not least given we were taken into this Union without being asked.

    We are so close now, it is finally becoming “real”.

    Even if there are difficulties or adjustments needed in the wake of Brexit, it will be worth it to wrest back our own destiny from the unelected overlords – Tusk, Junker, Barnier etc – who only crawled out of the woodwork once the British voted to leave. Who had ever heard of these men before? Previously they were happy to be faceless yet powerful men, comfortable at their troughs, behind the empty talking shop of the EU Parliament.

    Th EU attitude to the UK has been one of derision ever since the leave vote. They have not worked to find a mutually beneficial deal – after all, they do not negotiate, they only impose. Their intransigence will only lead to acrimony, which is sad, but even that will be worth tolerating to realise Brexit.

    Looking back over recent centuries, we see that France and Germany have both tried to dominate Europe via military means, at different times. In my opinion, the EU is just the latest effort at this ambition, but exercised through a creeping soft and shadowy power.

    As for the Christian response – well, I think whooping and cheering ought to suffice. And I daresay a good few celebratory drinks as well (oops, that’s the Scottish response creeping in there, haha!).

  7. Gabriel Syme,

    Great post. I am especially interested in your mention of France and Germany seeking to dominate Europe by military means. I heard the other day that these two countries have made a new military pact. Here is a extract:

    “This week President Macron and Chancellor Merkel signed a Franco German Treaty at Aachen. It sets up a governing committee for a common European army, to be based on establishing a common culture in the German and French forces and engaging them in more joint operations. There will be common weapons procurement and an integrated supply industry.
    The same Treaty also wishes to erode the distinctions of government and culture in the border areas between the two countries. There will be an overall joint governing structure, encouragement of bilingualism, and joint government programmes. The Treaty in addition sets up an economic council of experts to advise on bringing together economic policies. The two countries pledge themselves to even closer governmental working and more convergence of law and action. France promises to take the common EU line on the Security Council of the UN, and to seek a permanent seat for Germany on that body as well.”
    http://johnredwoodsdiary.com/2019/01/24/the-treaty-of-aachen-and-the-european-army/

    I also think this is very interesting from a young Brexiteer.

    • Hans,

      No. The roots of the EU are certainly NOT Catholic.
      http://www.religioustolerance.org/const_eu.htm

      And the fact is, numpties like me have been under the impression that the move to a United States of Europe is something that has evolved but the intention was there from the start. However, the powers-that-be decided not to make that intention public – it would not go down well with the hoi polloi – and instead to sell the EU as merely a trading arrangement.

      As for a “restoration” – that will come, as it will come everywhere else, when the Consecration of Russia is achieved. Not before.

      And those who still argue to stay in the EU and work for reforms, ought to recall the efforts made by David Cameron, who warned that without some changes he would be forced to keep his promise to the people of the UK to organise an IN/OUT referendum on our membership of the EU – sent home, tail between his legs, humiliated. Basically told to shut up.

      We need to leave. On 29 March.

    • Hans

      Interestingly, the man who created the EU flag was a Catholic and he designed it in honour of the Blessed Virgin (The crown of 12 stars). But the institution itself is both Communist and Masonic, created essentially to eradicate Christianity from the nations of Europe by its various laws and interculturation processes. It is precisely the old USSR Supreme Soviet set up in Western Europe, even having former members of the Supreme Soviet in its higher echelons. It’s the mechanism by which Our Lady warned at Fatima that “Russia will spread her errors…”

      There is barely a remnant of Christianity left anywhere in Europe now, the entire continent having been slowly led into dialectic materialism (Socialism), the hallmark of Communism.

      You know, it amazes me that the peoples of Europe, while claiming to be proud of their democracies, are so at ease with an organisation whose leaders are unelected dictators. Never quite got my head around that particular contradiction. The people of all European countries should be rising up to rid Europe of this attemtped coup, yet they support it while claiming to be patriotic and democratic.

      Talk about being blind! Well, I suppose when it comes right down to it the entire business comes down to people themselves, sellling out to the highest bidder. That’s another downside of losing their Christian roots, people become very individual and selfish. The devil has always known that materalism wins for him the greater number of souls. He even tried to bribe Our Lord with worldly power and wealth. Sadly, too many in Westminster have taken the offer and are presently seeking to do a deal with the devil. “We cannot leave without a deal”, they say. That’s probably down to the fact that many of them have a finger in the EU pie already, or are hoping to get a big job in Brussels when their political careers start to slide in the UK. Disgraceful people, a pack of rogues!

    • Nicky,

      I’m told that the priest-editor of Alive-O, popular Catholic newspaper in Ireland, is an “Irexiteer”!

      And the leading light in the Irish campaign is Hermann Kelly whom I presume is the same Hermann Kelly who wrote the book Kathy’s Real Story, refuting the false claims made against the Sisters in the Magdalene Laundries.

      So far, the polls appear to be showing majority support for remaining in the EU but that could well change. Anyway, thank you for posting that clip. Will drive the EU Gurus crazy, that we’ve not even left yet and our nearest neighbour is showing signs of following in our footsteps…

      Very encouraging 😀

  8. I thought of this thread when I heard Donald Tusk’s very UN-Christian response to Brexit, talking about the promoters of Brexit going to a special place in Hell. I think he added the bit about “Brexit without a plan” to stem some of the flack he knew would come – he just hates that we voted to leave. He is an ignorant man. He called the referendum “dangerous and stupid” – he really has some nerve.

    • I was so angry when I saw Tusk and Varadker mocking us on the news. I tried to find the clip on YouTube but they don’t give the whole thing. I did find this short video of Nigel Farage on an Irish radio show and the Irish presenter is about as arrogant as they come. One interesting thing is the comments underneath the video show that Leo Varadker is not one bit popular over there – he’s a puppet of the EU (as if we didn’t already know that, LOL!)

    • Josephine

      There is no evidence, at all, Mr Tusk “added” a few words to take the sting out of his comments. His pointed comment was clearly addressed to the politicians who didn’t plan for the outcome they were seeking/hoping for. We are where we are now after nearly two and half years. No serious Brexiteer can be anything but frustrated at the current state of play.

      Mr Tusk is well versed in so many things including literature, music and culture, and very articulate and not one word he speaks is superfluous. He may indeed regret the vote but his attack was not on brexiteers, as a whole, but on those politicians who have not presented their case well, or built on the majority result.

      I write the above as one who voted for Brexit, and I want what some are terming a “hard” brexit.

      Most commentators here appear to be from Scotland, and much of the bluster, delays, and attacks are coming from The Scottish Government!

      Even though I am in favour of the result, and indeed voted for it as I say, I believe:

      1. David Cameron was wrong to call the referendum for Party Political reasons, and wrong not to get Civil Servants planning for either outcome.

      2. Mrs May was wrong to trigger Article 50 without doing similar planing, and she too has been much concerned with keeping her party together.

      3. The majority in Northern Ireland voted to remain, and yet the dominant voice in talking to the Government is a pro-brexit N.I. Party. That fact complicates things.

      4. Both The Labour Party and The SNP are using the situation solely to further a party political and or nationalistic agenda.

      In a sense Mr Tusk spoke for me on this, except I believe he was wrong to mention hell. The Brexiteer leaders have, so far, failed those who voted for brexit, and others have only represented their own particular interested.

      All concerned need to get their act together, and respect the result, and work in the national interest, and speedily.

      Brexit should mean brexit, and The Union must be preserved!

      By the way, Nigel Farage has lined his pockets in Europe, and has been tainted by his views on other none E.U. issues.

      • Martin,

        Reading your latest comment, I thought I’d tuned in to Newsnight by mistake! All the usual stuff, all the not-so-subtle soundbites to undermine Brexit, and always with the accompanying “But I respect the result” or “I voted LEAVE” – and, of course, let’s not miss a chance to take a swipe at Nigel Farage. It always strikes me as odd that people talk about him lining his pockets with EU money when he is giving up that same EU money in order to get us OUT of the EU. As for his other “non EU issues” – who cares? I don’t care. There’s not a politician in the land whom I respect – not one. Nigel is the closest because he has exposed the corrupt European Project and single-handedly, just about, forced the Government of the day to give us the referendum.

        In summary, you are one very interesting “leaver” – you really ought to be on Newsnight, if you don’t mind me saying so… 😀

        No… The reason we’re in this mess, is because those who are pretending to “respect the vote” blah blah, do NOT respect the vote and they want to keep us in the prison which we call the EU. To quote another soundbite, only occasionally voiced, the problem is that we have a “remain” Parliament and a “leave” population. Parliament Versus The People. Don’t be fooled by all the blether about “no plan” – no plan needed. Just let us get out, WTO rules and we will fix the side trade deals in due course. The world won’t end. So, do not be fooled by the “no plan” nonsense. I’m certainly not fooled by it – why should lesser minds be worried? 😀

        • Editor

          Anyone who actually knows me will know I passionately believe in brexit, and don’t do soundbite brexiting! I am frustrated by current events. (I have personally challenged my remain MP to respect, in every way, the vote.)

          I don’t believe the issue is we have a remain Parliament. Both major UK Parties have a leadership whose interests have primarily been party interests, and the third largest party, The SNP , are a one issue Party.

          The primary reason for the delay there is not one party leadership articulating a way forward. Further, Cameron and May should have both done more serious preparation before they each triggered the action they did.

          Political commentators usually have “inside” information, and practically every commentator expected Mrs May is campaign for brexit, but her political ambitions probably dominated her thinking at the time of the referendum. (Popular opinion, as you know suggested, and Cameron believed, remain would win.)

          Nigel Farage is probably one of the dodgiest politicians in the UK. You are wrong to elevate his status because on one, very important issue, you agree with him. (Nigel Farage is, as I am sure you know, is in favour of abortion, and describes himself as “pro-choice”.) I thought you believed abortion was the litmus test issue when it comes to supporting, and voting for, politicians.) You want to promote a party led by a person who is pro-abortion?

          Editor: I have never heard Nigel Farage say he is in favour of abortion. Some years ago, one or our bloggers went into the UKIP site and asked questions about the moral issues. The reply was vague, if I remember correctly, along the lines of “it’s up to individuals, not party policy” but I could be mistaken. I definitely have never heard any claim either from Nigel or anyone else, that he is pro-abortion. Is there any clear and independent evidence that he is pro-abortion?

          • Editor

            I am not at all technical but I believe this link will take you to a the place where he says specifically he is pro-choice (although he favours lowering the upper age limit):

            I wouldn’t make it up.

            • Martin,

              Thank you for taking the trouble to provide that evidence.

              It is certainly disappointing that Nigel is pro-abortion, although, his remarks about the age limit give us hope that he could be brought to see the truth about such butchery, whatever the age of the child.

              I suppose it would be too much to hope that he (or any other politician these days) would be standing firm against evils like abortion and same sex “marriage”, so I really can’t pretend to be shock-horror surprised. Even Jacob Rees Mogg, while stressing that he is personally against abortion in all circumstances, seeks to emphasise that he accepts the law and would not change the law were he in the top job, and he has no problem with same-sex “marriage” and, as we know from another interview, no worries about IVF. It is a measure of the intolerance of the Liberal/Loony Left, that even his assurance that the law on abortion will not change, is not sufficient to stem the critics. Some of the Conservative females in Parliament have even said openly that they would be unlikely to be able to work under his leadership, were he to achieve the top job of Prime Minister, because of his “views” on moral issues (which they deem to be “socially progressive” – great euphemism).

              Nigel is not a Catholic, so what he has said in the video clip which you post, is more than we have been hearing from so-called Catholic politicians. Disappointing, however, no question about it.

              My admiration for Nigel is based solely on the fact that he had the vision to work for an end to the domination of the EU in the UK (and indeed across Europe) and he definitely deserves the credit for being instrumental in forcing David Cameron to allow the 2016 referendum. He speaks clearly and strongly and is fearless when confronting the Gurus of the EU, not to mention the wimps in the House of Commons.

              I appreciate that you wouldn’t have made up the claim about him being “pro-choice” – I just had never heard him speaking on the topic, nor had I heard anyone else referring to his views and therein, I must be honest, is The Clue. Were he pro-life, he’d be mincemeat at every opportunity on radio and TV!

              So, thank you for that clip. Very interesting. Deeply disappointing.

              • So being a non Catholic Brexiteer, who may want to remove the upper limit on abortion, passes your litmus test on abortion? How sad is that?

                I think leaving the EU is important but not more important than a desire to end all abortion.

                • Martin,

                  No, I did not say anything about Nigel “passing any litmus test on abortion.”

                  I have often said on this blog that I long ago stopped voting for politicians on the basis that they are “pro-life” – because it’s not the politicians who matter, it’s the Party. The system. Pope John Paul II said we may not vote for A SYSTEM which legalises abortion, so long ago I stopped using that as my “litmus test” for voting.

                  I just don’t vote. I go into the booth and spoil my paper by telling them what I think of their Godless, secular “progressive” policies.

                  You seem to be saying that because this non-Catholic man is “pro-choice”, I should not support Brexit, or praise his part in securing it, due to his “pro-choice” beliefs. Is that it?

                  If you are arguing that I should not have registered to show support for The Brexit Party, newly launched, please note that I have not paid a penny to the Party and not signed up as a member. I have merely sent a signal to Mrs May that she is not going to get away with her shenanigans, that the new Party has support.

                  Your response to my reply confirms my belief that you are a troll. So, thank you for that! Saves me feeling guilty!

                  PS – I’d be interested to know if you are a member of any political party or if you actually vote for any politicians of any party in General Elections.

                  • Editor,

                    I think The Brexit Party is exceptional in that it is a single-issue Party, for the one purpose of making sure the referendum result is obeyed.

                    It’s not like the leader of The Brexit Party is going to be Prime Minister – it’s just about getting out of the EU, so I don’t think it would matter anyway if a Catholic signed up to support the Party or donate to it. That’s like saying you wouldn’t donate to a Charity, such as OXFAM, if the CEO wasn’t pro-life. Would we ask a beggar on the street if he is pro-life before throwing a donation into his tin – of course not. It’s the same thing with The Brexit Party, IMHO.

  9. Actually Laura, I listed to Niall Boylan and found him fair and balanced. True, to start with he voiced all the usual brainwashed garbage but, when Nigel Farage explained the situation to him, I thought he listened and was sincere in his responses. I also thought that he showed far more intelligence and insight than we hear on this side of the Irish Sea.

    • Crofterlady,

      Maybe I’ve just become so anti-Irish now that I can’t see past his nasty, ignorant, loud-mouthed pro-EU mantra. Even his accent irritated me – I used to love all Irish accents! And we need to remember that Varadkar was heard on mic, agreeing with Tusk about his Hell remark. Ireland – through its politicians and uncritical media – has sold its soul to the EU. The radio presenter finished as he had started – promoting the EU and affirming that Ireland would not vote to leave. So, whatever indulgence he extended to Nigel Farage, he wasn’t REALLY listening.

      PS before anyone accuses me of racism, I am first generation Scots, from an Irish family background.

      • Editor

        Can you please explain why my posts seem to vetted before they appear on this site? (They do not appear at the time of posting). Thank You.

        • Martin,

          Yes, I’m happy to explain.

          Normally, after approving a new, first comment, bloggers’ comments go straight onto the page.

          However, we did, some time ago, have a troll called Martin and I’m just not sure if you are he, back to torment us. I could take the view “If in doubt, don’t” (publish) but I do try to be fair and so I thought I would monitor your comments for a while to make sure that you are a genuine new blogger.

          One of the hallmarks of the trolls is that they appear with the mystery man avatar, so that, together with username and the nature of your first comments in particular, have caused me to be a Doubting Thomasina.

          No offence intended, and I hope you understand, because once they are given free rein to comment at will, the trolls are a real pain, totally spoil every discussion.

          • Editor

            Martin is a fairly common name!

            In the video NF states he is pro-abortion, and yet you do not apologise to me, in bold, or correct your endorsement of him, or his party.

            • Martin,

              Crystal clear, you are a troll. Typically, trolls want to keep the pot boiling.

              Any reasonable person would read my post as a very fair response to you, where I thank you for posting the video clip.

              I cannot see why I owe you an apology since I did not accuse you of anything – I merely said I’d never heard that Nigel was pro-abortion and asked you if you had any evidence. When you provided the evidence, I thanked you. What’s your problem? I DO endorse, and admire, Nigel’s work to get us out of the EU. Live with it.

              If you want to play silly beggars and complain because my post wasn’t in bold, you, pal, have far too much time on your hands. The only reason my editorial comment was in bold in your post was to save me time submitting a separate comment, for reasons which are none of your business – so – as I say – if you want to play silly beggars take your trolling elsewhere.

              You won’t be published here again.

              Byeeeeee!

                Thank goodness for that “Byeeeeee!” I have meant to say often that I believe these trolls have a fixation with you.

                I say that because I notice that when you reply, as you did a short while ago to this “Martin”, writing a perfectly reasonable comment, he was back on in a jiffy, suggesting he was there, online, waiting to pounce.

                These are sick people and I honestly don’t think you do them any favours by allowing them to comment so I’m glad you have worked your magic to make his posts disappear.

    • WF,

      Thank you! I’ve signed to register my support for a political party for the very first time in my entire life. On this Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes – hoping this will help; all natural moves to achieve Brexit seem to be failing so we turn, with confidence, to the supernatural!

      Our Lady of Lourdes, Health of the spiritually and morally sick nations of Europe, pray for us!

    • WF,

      I’ve heard that said quite a few times in interviews by Brexiteers, like Owen Paterson and others – it has astonished me that no interviewer picked it up and developed it, which makes me suspect that the media powers-that-be are every bit as implicated in the cover-up and determination to sabotage Brexit.

      On the day I cast my vote, I said I would be amazed if we are allowed to leave. In time, I began to become more hopeful.

      I’m now back to square one. I doubt, very much, if we will get out of this prison.

      My only remaining hope is this; might it be possible to get out “in name only” and then, under a new Government, REALLY get out?!

      Does anyone know what I mean? Agree? Disagree?

        I think that’s a possibility, but it’s a disgrace that Theresa May is playing these games to keep us in the EU, all the while saying she wants to “honour the result of the referendum”. It’s just so dishonest.

  10. Well, here we have a string of Labour MPs who are battling for a second referendum – a “People’s Vote”, abandoning the Labour Party (on which Manifesto they were elected at the last General Election) to sit in Parliament as Independent MPs – arguing all the way that they don’t need to give their their constituents (who are “people”) a second vote, because circumstances have changed (their rationale for demanding a second Brexit vote!)

    Such hypocrites! There’s just nothing they won’t do, in their attempts to stop Brexit.

      Melanie Phillips’ article just confirms what we already know, which is that Westminster today houses a combination of corrupt and/or cowardly politicians, the former making up the majority. They should all be thrown out of politics for daring to thwart the will of the people clearly expressed in the Referendum of 2016.

      That 600 or so self-seeking betrayers of democracy are permitted to subvert the sovereignty of the UK speaks volumes on the deterioration of once-Great Britain into a banana republic. It’s shocking criminality disguised as political debate.
