Had the British Government honoured their promises following the 2016 Brexit referendum, we would have left the EU on March 29th 2019 and participation in the May European Elections would not have been necessary.
Their betrayal of the democratic decision of 17.4 million people in the biggest vote on anything in Britain’s history meant that we had to participate in the European Elections wasting millions of taxpayer’s money in the process. The results have seen a seismic change in British politics, with Nigel Farage’s new Brexit party delivering a bloody nose to both the Conservative and Labour parties.
In an astonishing week in Politics Prime Minister Theresa May has resigned and a frenzied battle for the Conservative party leadership has now begun with Boris Johnson taking an early lead as the frontrunner.
A clear majority of the British electorate voted to take back the power previous administrations had ceded to the EU in a gradual erosion of our sovereignty which began in 1973. Three years on from the Brexit vote it is abundantly clear that our elected MPs failed to honour their election pledges and that the will of Parliament is set against the expressed will of the British people. This is a threat to democracy itself and a constitutional framework which served the nation in peace and war for over more than three centuries. The Brexit Party’s spectacular result is a warning shot over the bow of the Westminster establishment. It confirms that the will of the people and a system of law and government which our ancestors fought and died for will not be given up. This is indeed one of the most dangerous moments in Britain’s long history.
