So many lies surround Brexit, Lynn News letters
It has been a hideous sight seeing our politicians shouting at each other and no one listening.
The plain truth is that nobody knows what to do or how to solve the problems that face the nation. Most of our MPs know what they do not like but fail to offer solutions.
The vast majority of the vote to reject Theresa May’s deal brought together MPs with vastly differing views, but consensus was merely dislike of the package, otherwise the essence was division.
Our MPs replace truth with deception because they have lost sight of the
original meaning of democracy, that is to say Government of the People by the People for the People. It is replaced by a propagation of lies and a use of anxiety to promote proposals that have no basis of truth, such as the fear of leaving the EU with no deal. It is said that this will collapse the British economy, but less than half our exports are linked to the European Union and Europe sells us £95 billion more in goods annually than we sell to them. It is clearly a pack of lies that our economy will collapse!
Public trust in the political classes will only be rekindled when spin and obfuscation is replaced with openness and transparency.
