Ummm.... I am going to take a side wager on Boris quitting before the end of this week. If he can't get a general election, and has his hands tied to a deal that Parliament can debate, aside from the Prorogation foll d' roll being Un-Prorograted so they can discuss anything.
I am thinking this is like the rules of Cricket printed on a tea towel. Well Boris has already thrown in the proverbial towel for a fight by sayin he would rather be dead in a ditch... and he is being made to pick it up again. Only Right.
Boris is going to explode. He will throw a hissy fit and throw his hands up, saying it's everyone else's fault that Brexit is not happening on the 31st October, and they don't want to play at Elections.
This bit is nothing about Brexit, and everything about Good statesmanship, Government and Parliament working out a solution to the lies we were told in order to bring about a referendum to leave the EU.
The press manipulated the coverage about prosperity, security, and free movement and co-operative working and our MEPs in the EU, and made the leave campaign far more Nationalistic and fought it on hysterical terms.
The front page of our local paper says we will have fluctuating food prices, uncertainty, poor supply of medicines, we will be in all sorts of difficulties on our small Channel Islands.
It is funny that some of the newspapers went with Jeremy Corbyn as a Chicken. It's the National Bird of France. They certainly sold him to the French.
I would far rather see this alliance that has formed to stop Boris become the next Government if they can work together. Early days to say this but I feel very proud of them getting along round the same table. I am sure more would get done for the country.
The thing that is clear is that each member of Parliament and Government is the Peoples Representative. When a Referendum is called it is advisory. If however in the nature of National Security, and Interest, after much discussion and deliberation the majority of those who are elected representatives vote against the outcome of the Referendum, there needs to be a robust mechanism in place to deal with the ensuing mistrust of disaffected voters.
Perhaps the prudence is not to call Referendums without very clear rules and procedures in the fist place.
I don't think the United Kingdom would lose face if they decided to stay in the EU. I think if they decided to stay in, they should take their place and be among the Major Players that shape all our futures.
French Chicken is definitely far tastier than anything you can imagine importing with high food miles and chlorine baths from the USA. Welsh Lamb is considered a delicacy on the continent. We already have a good deal in the EU.
The Politics of the EU would be the next thing to grasp with some clarity. What are their long term objectives?
