We voted for a hard Brexit in the referendum, Lynn News letters
That is what Corbyn of Labour, Swinson of the Liberal Democrats, Lucas of the Greens, Price of Plaid Cymru, Blackford of the SNP and the forces of hell are all doing with Brexit, supported by the devilishly corrupt Speaker John Bercow.
In 2016, Parliament called for a binding referendum, promising to deliver the people’s vote. But remainer MPs didn’t get the result they wanted, so for the past three years they have arrogantly refused to be bound by the result. They all have one goal, and that is to completely ignore the democratic referendum and stop Brexit altogether.
Look at the reckless damage that the remain parliament has already caused: Three years of surrender and pointless negotiation with the EU, that has achieved absolutely nothing; the scandal of Philip Hammond refusing to prepare Britain properly for a no deal Brexit; the scandalous damage that Project Fear has done to business confidence; the damaging uncertainty for British businesses by forcing the many delays to leaving; the scandalous continued payments to the EU of £1 billion per month so that we have had to pay another £6 billion unnecessarily to the EU because we did not leave in March as promised 108 times by Theresa May; worst of all, they have trashed our democracy, taking us for fools.
Parliament seems to have forgotten it voted overwhelmingly for the Brexit Withdrawal Act, including Article 50 which allowed us to leave the EU with no deal, should talks fail. But it has now broken even this vow by outlawing no deal!
It is remainers who have broken their promises, broken the law, broken democracy and caused chaos.
Fortunately there is a reckoning coming.
The EU has no intention of giving us a fair deal or a good deal. It wants us to fail as an independent sovereign nation so it has only offered us a humiliating deal and is demanding £39 billion to put us in a straight jacket and make us a pitiful example to the rest of the EU. The only way to deliver a true Brexit is to walk away with no deal on perfectly usable WTO terms.
Those of us who voted to come out of the EU actually voted for a hard Brexit, a clean break. Former PM David Cameron said voting to come out of the EU would mean coming out of the Single Market, coming out of the Customs Union and coming out of the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. A hard Brexit is simply delivering what was promised in the referendum, a clean Brexit.
