Brexit – What next?

BREXIT_Labour

The UK Parliament has rejected Theresa May’s Brexit deal by 432 votes to 202.

The largest, catastrophic, humiliating defeat for any sitting Government in history.

Remember, the PM was concentrating only on the Brexit deal for last 2½ years.

She ignored schools, public sectors, railways and all other aspects of governing a country.

Yet, the PM miserably failed in securing confidence for her deal.

How out of touch a PM and Government can be?!

This defeat is also an indirect defeat for the unelected EU bureaucrats.

 

What next?

This deadlock could be removed only by a General Election.

Why?

Clearly, this PM has lost the confidence of the UK Parliament and the country.

Remember, 117 MPs from her own Conservative Party voted no-confidence in her leadership only a month ago.

Today 118 Conservative MPs voted with the opposition against her deal.

With these defeats any self-respecting PM would’ve already resigned.

But not Theresa May!

the PM still prefers to cling on to her seat, propped by 10 DUP MPs – all of whom too voted against her.

How many more chance should we give this PM at this crucial time?

How many more iterations should we give this PM to re-negotiate and repeatedly voted down in the Parliament?

 

A General Election will give the public to have their say – to vote-in a Government they trust.

It will bring in a new parliament, a new Government.

That Government, with the voter’s support, will have the mandate to re-negotiate with the EU.

That is the only political and democratic solution to this deadlock.

What are your thoughts?

“Brexit is Brexit” – or is it something else, Prime Minister?

BREXIT_Labour

I voted to Leave and was thrilled by the outcome of the referendum.

Though I had no faith in a Tory minority government, I expected it to deliver Brexit.

Especially, when it was etched in the Conservative 2017 Manifesto.

When Mrs. May tweeted “Brexit is Brexit”, I didn’t realise she was clueless.

 

2 years after that tweet, her proposal is everything else, but not a positive Brexit.

I am not saying it; its the concern of her own Brexit Secretary and Foreign Secretary.

Oh, correction, ex-Secretaries; both have resigned, in the last 24 hours.

 

It took 24 months for Theresa May to get the cabinet agree on her Brexit proposal.

It barely lasted 48 hours.

 

This Prime Minister has no authority left, her government is unable to govern.

Ideally, we should now be busy negotiating with EU and wider world.

Instead, the cabinet is busy arguing between themselves.

 

We have a crisis.

This government is a serious threat to the UK’s political and economic existence.

 

The country, its people and businesses have no clue where this government is heading with Brexit.

We still have some time – or whatever is left, to make things better.

We need a government that is capable of governing and negotiating for Britain.

If this government cannot, make way for those who can.
