Despite all of the optimism, despite all of the hype, despite all of the potential, Theresa May has been a complete and utter failure and has turned out to be one of the worst Prime Minister’s this country has ever had. It is quite obvious that May is controlled by the liberal civil service, too afraid of her remoaner colleagues and has never really believed in her “Brexit means Brexit” motto. I had so much hope when May became Prime Minister and we finally saw the back of Cameron and Osborne. However, she has turned out to be as weak, if not weaker, than her predecessor. We are leaving the European Union in name only, despite 17.4 million people voting for the exact opposite of what this Government has come up with.
With this deal that was discussed and agreed to at Chequers, the UK will be signed up to rules and regulations regarding goods and services and will remain in many EU departments for many years to come. The judiciary system will still be wanting to have a say, therefore our laws will not be completely controlled by Westminster. We will still be restricted from signing trade deals with Australia, Canada, India, USA and more. We will still be unable to control immigration, whilst having an open border to workers. We will still be unable to have full control over our fishing waters. To think that this deal is just like the Norway model is nonsense, it’s even worse! I hate to say it, but this deal is probably even worse than staying a full member of the European Union! We will still be controlled by Brussels, but have no say whatsoever and no representation in their parliament. What complete and utter shambles of a deal.
However, this goes further than just the referendum result that we had two years ago. The Conservative party were elected (just) on a (bland) manifesto that stated that the United Kingdom, under a Tory government, would leave the Customs Union and the Single Market. Any government that goes against the ticket that they were elected on should resign immediately. It is contrary to how the UK’s democratic system works, it is essentially lying to the electorate that voted for them. Speaking of how our parliamentary constitution works, the House of Lords has voted against the Conservative party’s manifesto on numerous occasions, despite the Sailsbury Convention, which states that the House of Lords only has free votes when what they are voting on was not first voted for by the people.
These negotiations are just as if a losing nation in a war were organising their own peace treaty with the victors. The people spoke, the largest ever democratic vote in the history of the country, and they voted to leave the European Union. However, the people who are organising our negotiations, are the very same people who campaigned and voted to remain a member of the EU and don’t believe in Brexit.
Contrary to what the remoaners like you to believe, we did know what we were voting for. Why do I know that? Because I knew and I made it my goal to campaign and tell everyone that I came across why we should vote to leave. A vote to leave was a vote for border control, for the UK to make all of their own laws, to get back our fishing waters, to sign our own trade deals, to leave the Single Market and to leave the Custom’s Union. Leaving means leaving every part of the EU. When I went to the polling station, I saw two options. Remain or Leave. I did not see “Remain, but if you want to leave some aspects of the Union then we can discuss this at a later date.” Likewise, I did not see “Leave, but if you want to remain in certain parts of the EU, then that can be arranged.” Let’s stop with all of this nonsense of “well, leave voters didn’t know what they were voting for”, yes, we did. If you cancel your gym membership, you are no longer allowed to use the equipment. You don’t leave and then decide to come back and use the running machine. Once you’ve left, you’ve left every aspect of the gym. This should be the same when it comes to the EU. We leave and leave every department that comes with it.
We have been betrayed by the establishment, once again. It’s time for May to go and for MP’s like Anna Soubry to lose their seats. What worries me the most, is that if a general election is called whilst May is still leader of the Conservatives, then the British public will only have 1970’s socialist Jeremy Corbyn to turn to. We need help and we need it fast. Nigel Farage has said that he may return as leader of UKIP in 2019 if (when) Brexit is betrayed, but will that do enough to pressure the liberal establishment just as UKIP did during the years of 2013-2016? What we really need is Jacob Rees-Mogg to become the leader of the Conservatives, for real conservatives to win seats in the House of Commons and to restart our EU negotiations.
The war was won, we got the vote, but our peace treaty is being organised by those on the losing side. We have a long way to go.
