Time For Me To Post Again, Methinks.
My first thoughts on this event this morning was good for them. Standing up for their principles. Then I thought again. I have always argued on this blog that if an MP quit his of her Party they should resign their seat and stand as an independent.
Their election was under a previously held but no longer, allegiance to a Party which facilitated their opportunity to stand and be supported by that Party and its activists, leaflet foot sloggers and all of the machine an election campaign requires for success. It is my belief that this lucrative career is one nobody should hang onto if their status at election changes dramatically.
It's dishonest and lacks credibility when they won't take the risk of losing their seats in an election. If not dishonest, certainly immoral. It's also fascinating that they all appear to be ardent europhiles and remainers. perhaps they see careers with the EUSSR unelected commissars. Who knows?
What is for sure, it makes, at first glance, nought but a futile gesture. Time will tell. As for a possible Brexit influence, I doubt it will make a jot of difference. The powerful, global elite have surely allowed May's stubborn presence to ensure we never leave is untouchable. How I would love to be wrong but I feel it in my bones I am not.
The likely scenario will be a delay followed by a very bad deal, years of hardship and slavery to the globalist vindictive power and a humble surrender. The loss of the pound, the UK per se and a massive bill on top of that already on the table, to buy a degree of humble forgiveness for our intransigence. Baroness May will be well rewarded, just you see. As might the less than magnificent 7.
