I have been following this for a while. I know that a lot of people on the left and right want out of the EU, but what I am referring to is the "no
Brexit. Virtually all commentators from all points on the economic and political horizon in Britain caution against a no deal Brexit. They
do so because they see it being accompanied by an unacceptable level of economic disturbance that will go on for a prolonged period.
However, having said that, there is a segment of the Tory Party, a significant number of MPs, who do want a no deal Brexit, and have gone so far as to
consider attempting to force a no deal Brexit by proroguing parliament, at an opportune moment, so as to force it to pass the agreed upon leaving date
in order to trigger the default automatic exit of the country from the EU, without having agreed a deal.
These are serious people in the Conservative Party who do not mind the risk of economic disturbances.
There are such people on the left as well, but of a different sort. They are emotional irrationalists, in my opinion. They voted and their votes
counted, but they are like football fans who get very emotionally involved with a team without any serious involvement in managing it.
The majority of people on the right and on the left, who support Brexit, want a deal of some sort. Unfortunately not enough of them want the deal that
was actually negotiated, for a variety of reasons.
The politicians really pushing for a no deal Brexit
are on the right of the Tory party, or even further right, in the general vicinity of Nigel
"Trump toady" Farage. These people are strongly connected to financial interests with deep pockets who are paying for their political service. Both
the Trump toady and the teflon Johnson have been connected to big paydays that don't normally happen to honest people.
My opinion is not that Brexit is a Tory stitch up, but that a "no deal" Brexit is a stitch up by big money employing certain politicians in the Tory
party to do their political work for them. These people, the politicians, are very unscrupulous. Fantasies have been held out to the public throughout
the Brexit process, from before the referendum vote until now.
The EU has stated unequivocally, multiple times, that they are not going to reopen negotiations on the Brexit deal, and yet candidates for the Tory
leadership have gotten up before the public and said that they are going to renegotiate Brexit. This kind of talk is outrageous and I am amazed that
the British public put up with it. It only serves, like a tour guide on a bus, to describe the sights to blindfolded passengers, while the bus takes
them to a completely different destination.
