Betrayal

As a nation, we deserve better.

I am 74, old enough to remember when our political system was populated by people of integrity. They’re all gone now, apart from a few, I suppose, but I am struggling to name them. Ken Clarke, maybe, Dennis Skinner certainly, but that’s it.

Last night a majority of the mob who currently debase the House of Commons voted to begin a process that will remove the possibility of leaving the EU without a deal. Boris doesn’t get much right but when he forecast that this will lead to years of uncertainty he may have been on the button.

The huge frustration is that there is a deal available. Theresa May negotiated it, only to see it rejected three times by the very people who frustrated her successor last night.

For Zog’s sake, we’re all exhausted by the ongoing disgrace that masquerades as our system of government. Let’s just bring back Theresa’s deal, as an independent motion if necessary, and vote the damn thing through.

    As bad as her deal was in parts, I have to agree or we will never get out.
    Still does not solve the Irish border situation.

    Watching from the other side of the world, I obviously don’t have a horse in the race, but I shake my head at what passes for political leadership in what I now call the Disunited Kingdom.
    How ironic that one of the stated aims was ‘to take back control’,…but the government can’t even control its own members, never mind the British Parliament!
    I wish everybody well in fixing this mess, but think it is beyond the current mob.

      We all know that, Fred. We see it daily on the telly. As I said to one of your countrymen on Facebook, this is Cleaver Green territory.

    They are trying to get us out of the EU, but watching PMQ’s it reminds me of primary school. This lot couldnt contract an STI in a leith knocking shop, let alone sort this mess
