So staying in the Single Market & CU is a betrayal of 17 million voters & a #peoplesvote is an outrage against democracy itself, but deliberately putting 65m people in the position of requiring basic goods to be stockpiled and brought in by requisitioned boats is apparently fine?
Avoiding national catastrophe’s such as this is the most basic core task of government. Instead, it’s being used as an impotent threat in a botched negotiation by a Govt that had needlessly boxed itself in to an impossible and undeliverable position.
Instead of protecting us from this, they are pulling us deliberately towards it.
This is not normal. It is dangerously insane.
And for what? For some English nationalists’ and some xenophobes’ pipe dreams wrapped up in some promises that can never be kept. For a moment in the limelight for some fading, marginal politicians. For the worst government in living memory to keep power.
