The (Brexit) Allies versus the Axis of (Remainer) Evil?



Friends, the political establishment in Britain is doing its best to throw Brexit into the dustbin of history, just as the "Swamp" is working hard to send the Trump family back to New York City (and preferably to Rikers Island).  Boris Johnson, though, Britain's courageous Brexiteer P.M., has an ace up his sleeve: Britain is (nominally, at least) a democracy, and that means that the people get a say!  Right now the rebel Conservatives, Labour, the Greens, the Scottish Nationalist Party, and the Liberal Democrats are all conspiring to prevent a quick election, because they fear Boris would win it.  It will happen, though, probably by November, and all parties must begin to consider their strategy for victory.  It would seem that the Conservatives are embracing Brexit more strongly than ever before, and as a result an opportunity has arisen to form an alliance between Nigel Farage's Brexit Party and the Conservatives.  Such an alliance would be formidable, especially as the two strongest opposition parties, Labour and the Liberal Democrats, seem far apart on many issues and look set to divide the Remainer vote between them.  I endorse a pact between the Conservatives and the Brexit Party wholeheartedly!  Indeed, I would love to see old Nigel in Boris's next cabinet.  Can you imagine the horror that would cause among the globalists and the elitists?  I can!  Bring it on!

  1. Hmmm...I have my doubts. I am afraid, though, the people have been fooled. I can remember when the subject of Brexit first came up and how many elected officials were on board. Then came the referendum in 2016 with 51.9% of the people voting for pro Brexit. The deadline as you know, has been extended twice since then. The will of the people? I seriously doubt it. It should be interesting if another vote will be taken and how many people will vote for it? I also wonder if they (the parliament) will allow it or once again stomp on it/the vote?

    I often wonder, do the people truly get a say? Thinking of our current democratic process. I certainty did not elect any official to turn to socialism, and or abuse the Constitution etc. I wonder, will or when our very own elected officials will turn on the will of the people? They almost succeed in a coup d'├ętat.

    I fully endorse a pact with the Conservative party and Pro Brexiters. I certainty like Nigel Farage and I hope Boris Johnson accepts the offer. Should be interesting...Every time this comes up in the news I yell at the TV,"THE PEOPLE VOTED!!!" I am afraid, it is falling on death ears, grin. If the protests going on across the pond are any indication, they might want to listen to those who voted--but they won't.

  2. Dr. Waddy and Linda: I would suggest that right now the only concern is Britain. And I think a Brexit - Conservative coaltion is natural and I hope for its success in the cradle of democracy. Hooraugh for Johnson!Long live Great Britain!

  3. Linda, I share your misgivings. Once the people voted back in 2016, for a while the elite politicians were cowed, and everyone acknowledged that the people's will would have to be respected. Three years later, it's obvious that many of these creeps were just playing for time. They never accepted Brexit and were prepared to do anything to avoid it. Theresa May actually gave them a perfect opportunity to vote for a form of Brexit that wasn't REALLY Brexit -- but even that didn't pass the smell test for the politicos! They're holding out for Brexit cancellation. They just might get it too. As Linda points out, the Swamp came close to evicting Trump from the Oval Office (at least they think they came close). Could Boris be next on their hit list? The knives really seem to be coming out for him. None of this is encouraging, to say the least!

    THE PEOPLE VOTED!!! Yes they did. Let's hope they didn't do so in vain. And let's hope that, if the people are forced to vote again, they remember their principles and block out the scare tactics.

  4. Dr. Waddy and Linda: This is proof, yet again, that the British left (and certainly too its American cousin) has long ago resolved to prevail no matter the cost,no matter the means, because to them is the to be desired destruction of liberal and completely discredited DEMOCRACY.

    As one follows thehistorical progress of the European Enlightenment which enabled so much of incipient British and American legal and political humanity one then encounters Rousseau and Kant and Hegel and Marx and after that, well, we know. And that existential contretemps continues to this day. Its contemporary battleground is the UK; there evolved Democracy defends and a disdainful leftist cohort counters, exemplified by the presumptuous bureaucracy of the EU, and its UK supporters, as it makes its supreme thrust toward totalitarian victory.

  5. Jack, you need to check out a book called Colonies to Nation 1763-1789 By Jack P. Greene. That will explain a lot.

  6. We look forward to your thorough book report, Linda. :)

    Jack, you put it so well. The Left is arguing (with a straight face) that "democracy" needs to be protected from referenda (as we saw in June 2016) and general elections (which Labour refuses to countenance until it gets its way and no-deal Brexit is ruled out). Assuming one's definition of "democracy" is this elastic...all things are possible, including Stalinism.

  7. LOL Dr. Waddy. I am afraid I am making enemies with the truth. These young people in the American Revolution class think it is just ok to be socialist. How many of them don't bother to read the material or don't have a clue, but yet want to sit there and run their mouths. It is astounding to say the least.

  8. Linda: Would be glad to hear from you a little more about what that book is about. That period fascinates me. As New Yorkers, those kids are going to get more chances to experience socialism in this state. They want the perceived benefits but they won't like the price. 'Course, they could try listening to people who know!

  9. Tsk tsk. It's very sad to hear that our best and brightest youngsters (I use that phrase loosely) are enamored of socialism. It's hardly surprising, though, given the efforts that have been made to brainwash them. Of course, young people in the 60s and 70s often seemed lost to common sense as well...and many of them wised up once they grew up. We could sit back and hope for the best, OR we could drive a stake through the heart of the public schools, just to be on the safe side. I vote for option B!
