Would a “Surprise” Brexit be Dishonest?

Would a “Surprise” Brexit be Dishonest?

Comment: 

The determination with which the remainers continue to work  to overturn Brexit – using the excuse of a “catastrophic no deal”  – is a lesson in zeal for us all.   However, if the above short video content [dated yesterday, 15 August] is true, and the Prime Minister is acting to make sure we DO exit on 31 October, with or without the support of Parliament, is that wrong?  A lot of us, if not the entire Catholic Truth blogging community, are Brexiteers to our fingertips, but should we support Boris – “do or die” – to get us out of the EU?

    Have been catching up with the news and disgusted at the lies being told by all and sundry to try to keep us in the EU. There is no question at all, that what is going on has nothing to do with a fear of “no deal” and everything to do with remainers refusing to deliver Brexit. There should be no such thing as a “remainer” now – the fact that these MPs continue to use this term, shows (along with their various machinations) that they have never accepted the result. I never thought I would see the day when I felt sorry for Boris Johnson but seeing the bits I’ve seen of the debacle in Parliament and some of the TV commentary, I’m appalled. He is showing courage by refusing to buckle under the pressure.

    As for the “catastrophic” no deal impact, seems that Mark Carney has changed his tune, and that, today of all days!

      The only thing that’s catastrophic is the actions of the majority of MPs who are putting up barriers.

    It’s laughable to watch the opposition making excuses not to support a General Election! The truth is, they know fine well that most of them will be booted out at the GE, for thwarting Brexit at every turn.

      MM,

      Talking about “laughing”, I couldn’t help smiling at the following comment, following the resignation of Boris Johnson’s own brother, Jo Johnson, a Conservative MP and minister:

      “One Westminster observer immediately summed up his decision to walk out as sending the message: “I’m resigning to spend less time with my family.”

      Priceless.

      However, in the same report, we read:

      “Others pointed back to an interview Jo Johnson gave, a few years ago, in which he insisted he and his brother would never suffer a family schism like David and Ed Miliband. “We don’t do things that way, that’s a very left-wing thing,” the younger Johnson said. “Only a socialist could do that to his brother, only a socialist could regard familial ties as being so trivial as to shaft his own brother.”

      It appeared the final straw for Jo Johnson was his brother’s decision to “purge” 21 moderate Conservatives from the party, for their rebellion to block a no-deal Brexit.

      That last comment reflects the ignorance within the Church with regards to the exposing and disciplining of public dissenters. What is it about “if you break the rules, you must take the consequences” that is so difficult to understand?

    I keep hoping to see Nigel Farage interviewed on one of the news or discussions programmes, but he doesn’t seem to get invited (I wonder why! LOL!)

    He was interviewed in the USA though, so here’s the clip.
