So we all know by now that a few years ago we Brits went to the poles and by a margin of only 1.7% (just over a million votes) decided that it would
be a good idea to divorce from our European cousins and go it alone. Two years down the line and we are walking with every increasing speed to our
demise as a nation state and are now faced with the devastating consequences of that decision.
Just about every week we see some kind of new news about the devastation that Brexit will cause, we had the recent news about a predicted 8% reduction
in economic growth plunging us into the deepest of the deep recessions. Some are even talking about economic collapse. Then there is the issue of the
Irish boarder, we have the NHS stockpiling medication, there are doubts about security, there could be chaos at the border. The list really does go on
and while some are a little optimistic it’s not looking good.
Our options out of this mess are limited, in two years the best May and her government can come up with is two resignations from Brexit ministers, one
foreign ministers’ resignation and a massive backbench backlash against a deal that is in pretty much no one’s interests. Regardless if you voted
leave or remain one thing is very clear the deal that May and her government have put together is awful, it’s never going to pass in parliament and
that’s going to create some problems for us Brits.
If it fails to pass then there isn’t really any time left to strike up a new deal and the EU are basically saying “this is the best you’re going
to get, take it or leave it”. The simple maths of parliament clearly demonstrates that May has about as much chance of getting this through
parliament as the “Ban on Tea imports act of 2014”. So if it fails to pass parliament she can’t commit the UK into agreement with the EU’s
plan and….well….that’s not good.
So a few options.
Let’s have a no-confidence vote and boot out May, put Boris in charge. Only that won’t fix anything because we still don’t have the time to
renegotiate a new deal so all it would do is leave us with a baffoon of a PM leading the country into the worst crisis we have faced since WWII.
Okay then so what else, well we could have a general election but that creates the same problems as PM Broris taking over.
Right how about we get the public to decide, send them back to the ballot box and ask what they want. Well that takes time that we don’t have
because we only have 120 days left to fix this mess.
Right then lets get extreme. Lets just acknowledge that the Breixt vote was only ever an advisory referendum and as such revoke article 50 or delay
its implementation until we can get a better deal. Emmmm…that might not work either., its also going to create massive political upheaval in the UK,
not to mention that the EU has not only said this is the best deal we will get but they have also been arguing that we can’t take it back.
Basically, the EU courts have apparently been discussing this and in their view not only might there not be a legal avenue for this but it would also
lead to lots of instability in the EU in the long run and therefore it wouldn’t be in their interests.
So what does that leave us with…..?
**INSERT YOUR FAVOURITE FLAVOUR OF DOOM PORN HERE**
Me, I go for the full on economic and political collapse within the first year
Its strange to me that nobody seems to be talking much about this, the fact that if you boil this all down your government is on the verge of a total
collapse. We seem to have found ourselves backed into this impossible corner, we are in the ultimate catch 22 with no way out and its all going to
come to a head very soon
11/12/18 is the date.
How do you think its going to go down?
