Brexit: To paraphrase words of Oliver Cromwell – ‘In the name of God, Go!’

January 5, 2017 OPINION/NEWS

The actual quote was ‘Depart I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!’

It has been rumoured in the press in recent weeks that even Her Majesty The Queen had remarked ‘can’t we just leave Europe?’; Quite!

It is appearing more and more apparent metaphorically, like the dangers and discomfort of a twisted bowel, that democracy has another split other than Remain or Leave and it is business vs individual voter.

Like a child screaming for attention the squirming Remainers are trying everything possible to fudge the vote of the British Public ‘as individuals’, not constituent countries, (since when have we done that as the Union of the UK?), and not big businesses, who are constantly being interviewed in the media.

Mrs May realises she is going to have inevitable unrest so she would be wise to uphold the rights and side of democracy. Business was here centuries before the European Club – so how did Great Britain become great in the first place?…

So far, individual voters are the only ones showing dignity and restraint.

The dictionary definition of the word Leave is simple. Also, Brexit means Brexit – Britain to Exit.

No questions were ever raised before the Referendum regarding Customs Union/Trading, Free Travel. The question approved by Parliament was ‘do you (the voters of the UK) wish to Leave or Remain in Europe?’

Mrs May has already told Nicola Sturgeon that Scotland, as part of the UK, for now at least, has to Leave Europe before it can apply to join again.

There has never been a proportional regional vote and if Scotland gets its way with this issue then every town in England should declare its independence akin to the film Passport to Pimlico.

So Mrs May, stick to your promise and for God’s sake tell Europe the UK is going to go. Leave means Leave.

The voter has more propensity for civil unrest than does big business and individual votes are considered, so far, to represent democracy. Ignore that at your peril.

Perhaps the UK needs an overseas contingency to monitor democracy is being upheld in the UK, as once, the UK made similar checks elsewhere in the world.

My, how times have changed.

Rule Britannia, Britannia Rules the Waves or Waves the Rules?

We Rule nothing if it requires the permission of Europe or anyone else.

The Lion is our Emblem so please do not swap that for big business as that is a Corporate vacuous entity that does not live in the hearts of the People of the UK, as does the Lion!

Trafalgar Square tells us that as we pass the Memorial to Lord Nelson in London every day, or look at the lions emblematic on English Cricket sweaters.

Now everyone is frightened to Leave Europe. How pathetic is that?!
