The Law Courts And Brexit

December 5, 2016

If the law lords and their supporters do not stop pontificating on this subject, we could have one hell of a reaction from the electorate, since if the law lords and their hangers on go against the Government plan, voted for by a majority in the referendum vote, then trouble in plenty could be the result, and we could have another delay in agreeing the passing of the referendum . Why the delays in the first place, the electorate voted for leaving the EU, and that SHOULD be the end of the matter, but these law lords and their hangers on will just carry on being bloody minded, and delay this change indefinitely, despite the vote being taken and voting "Leave". What can the EU do to delay it, even get our "superiors" to drop the matter and just keep us in the dying EU? Treachery comes to mind.

Hyperthetical question ," if the government (TM aka PM) just says FECK off to all ,and just pulls up the drawbridge and declares that the UK is out of Europe as of the 1st of March 2017" ???? ... So what could the EU do ??? or the liberal mamby pamby remainders do ?????  or the opposition in Westminster ????  Why ask this question ,well the United Kingdom is still a sovereign country with an elected government of a year or so ,would the Queen impose her authority as a constitutional monarch ?????. Further to this it seems to me the EU needs the UK more than visa versa ,we as a country should be imposing our will not being subjected to threats from non elected highly paid geeks in Brussels . As far the courts again the PM could tell them to pack their bags and FECK off to their villas in Spain/France etc . Or is this all wishful thinking on my part or has the PM the balls to do it ????????

Good question Bob, I have posed the same question myself. I THINK the answer lies within the following; firstly we are bound by treaty to abide by the EU rules, these are legally enforceable through the European Courts of Justice which we are part of. Secondly; for us to just walk away would mean we had no automatic trade bargaining powers with any of the 27 EU member states who could impose swingeing levies on our exports. That of course could be a double edged sword for the EU as well but in truth if we are seen as a country who isn't prepared to abide by contracts and treaties we sign up to, our fiscal confidence rating would likely plunge and our credit rating would drop off the radar. So: however tempting it might be to cut and run it isn't a viable option, sadly, but as I said I expect many others are asking the same question!!

Now parliament has voted , we are now in business or are we ???? The first person the BBC interview after the vote was a "remainder" MP  who spouted her anointed bilge against the leaving of the EU . Must have a plan,a white paper ,another vote from parliament on and on and on ,now we have the Scotish parliament sticking it's nose into foreign affairs that are not on the job title ,as they want to vote on Brexit plans tooo . I think the sooner the SNP and their delusional supporters leave ,why it's getting a real pain in the arse that 8% of the population think they can impose their ideology on the the other 92% ,talk about spitting their dummy out !!!

All these MPs who are remainers should go back to their constituencies especially where the majority voted to leave and explain their views. If they really feel strongly about this they should resign and force a by-election. But there's no chance of this. They don't want to leave that very exclusive club. As to Scotland imposing there ideology, what a yawn. It's one stupid woman and her hangers on. The way they're behaving she'll be out on her backside at the next election. Here in Berwickshire although we have a SNP MP in the Palace of Westminster. He talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk.  He's done nothing for the constituency. but this is the same for the local councillors. They have to do what the SNP Polit Buro tells them or they get de-selected.

Alfie, does THAT not confirm my thoughts,which are that nearly all politicians in one way or another are stymied by their leaders inso far as not  requesting and getting changes that we, the electorate want as a matter of urgency? It seems that we are inconsequencial in all this, and we are batting with a banana while those in power are bowling with a   3 ton metal ball? Or am I the one who has got it wrong??
