Well, I have to say I’m not all that shocked that the (vested interest in the EU) Supreme Court clowns blocked Article 50 being triggered.
I think this will go down in history as the day the posh minority killed Democracy in the UK. Moan all you like about Trump, about the Brexit vote last year, about Cameron and his resignation, but this, this is the biggest slap in the face to the people this country has seen.
How dare the likes of Gina Miller, herself an immigrant to this country, and Richard Branson (so much for his hippie image, eh?) say that the 52% of us who voted, as is our Democratic right up until now, are wrong.
They suggest the Government should discuss whether we leave or not.
Erm, guys, they kinda already did? Or did you miss that whilst you were drinking cocktails and sunning yourself on Necker (tax dodge) Island?
The fact that the previous Government discussed giving the British people the right to a Referendum, and we then had that Referendum, speaks for itself.
That the Government DEMOCRATICALLY voted to allow us to DEMOCRATICALLY say yes or no to Europe should be enough.
But clearly, these self centred, self interested toe rags, felt so shocked when they didn’t straight off get their own way as usual and have us all do as we’re told by them, and vote remain stung quite a lot more than usual.
How dare us oiks who are usually up to nothing more in their eyes than cleaning their cars and washing their clothes vote the opposite to them. We’re clearly all thick and should know our place.
(<<Insert sarcasm emoji here>>).
What makes me really sick here is that no doubt some of those 52% are people who had a vote for the first time, either due to age or due to being apathetic on politics and feeling, quite rightly, that no matter what way they voted previously, not being privileged or highly educated or being a homeowner or unemployed or disabled meant their voice was pretty much ignored by either side.
The fact they actually turned out to vote, and yes, I don’t doubt that some people voted Leave as a giant Fuck You to the government and what they see as Europe using us a free supply of cash, of seeing jobs and trades and factories close to be outsourced, of our right to be British being shit on from a great height, and of the lack of respect the EU showed any of our Elected representatives, but so what?
They voted. The majority said let’s get the hell outta here, let’s claw back our self respect, our industry, our ability to join the world stage.
THAT, THAT MATTERS.
I’ve seen people liken Gina Miller to Thatcher- as if that’s a great compliment- calling her the “Iron Lady” (erm, is it wrong to suggest that the only way you could call her that is if you mean she’s now an unelected busybody overruling the will of the people after an elected government gave them the right to vote, and thus we’d like a giant ten tonne Iron to drop on her?)
What we now face is far more uncertain times than the shocker of the Leave side winning. We don’t know what’s next if the Government decides to back down and remain in the EU.
For starters, Theresa May made it clear she would be forced to call an Election.
Would anyone really think we would vote for the Tories whose leaders firstly felt Remain was a surefire winner, and then who had so little klout that Branson and his twats could pay for a Supreme Court appeal to block without a pointless Government vote?
Labour could hold the key to the Trigger being pulled, being that most of them hold seats in Brexit vote strongholds.Yet, that’s not certain either. With Corbyn voicing that the will of the people should be upheld, and what remains of the Blairites and their anti Corbyn feeling within the party still swirling, no one can be sure that Labour will do what’s right.
So what next? Farage? Britain First? Do we really want to go down the Fascism route?
No, we don’t.
But, by ignoring the majority, many of whom are already disillusioned and wondering whether their voice counts for anything, this utterly disgusting disregard from the Supreme Court just paves a path for utter tools to rise up.
I voted Brexit last year and I stand by it to this day.
And I have just as much right in a Democracy to do so.
I ask you who feel that Gina Miller, Branson and the Supreme Court have done you a favour- go look at Dictatorships around the world, where the will of the people is stamped on, and everything we have fought for to keep sacred is just a dream to them.
See if you like the current climate in North Korea? Afghanistan? Russia?
Leaders like Mugabe, Kim Jong-Un and Putin?
Then tell your elected individuals to see sense and uphold Democracy.
God knows what will happen if we don’t.
