General Election 12th December 2019
"O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon Thee ... Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's ...

Leave On 31 October (23 October 2019)
"As I expected yesterday the Commons voted for the Withdrawal Treat Bill to have a second reading, then voted down the Timetable motion needed to allow further progress on the Bill ... The only way forward from ere that might deliver a good Brexit on time is to leave on 31 October without signing a Treaty, offering a free trade deal as we leave..."
Your Daily Brexit Betrayal (23 October 2019)
"This is a health warning: watching yesterday's 'events' in the House of Remain Harlots and the reports thereof in this morning's MSM is extremely painful! The idiocy of our MPs truly hurts. Regarding the result of last evening's votes and the preceding debates my doubts about the mental equipment of most MPs, especially those on the opposition benches, has been confirmed. It is abysmal..."
A bid to get UK PM Boris Johnson's hotly contested Brexit deal delivered in time fort the promised October 31st deadline appears to have failed, as MPs voted against the accelerated timetable put before them Tuesday evening..."
"Speaking to the Commons, Boris has confirmed what has been rumoured in private: the Government will pull the WA Bill entirely if MPs try meddling with the proposed timetable which will see it done by Thursday. If MPs try elongat[ing] the process to ensure Britain hasn't left the EU before January 2020, the Government will scrap the legislation and go for a general election..."
MPs Whinging Instead of Deciding (22 October 2019)
"Parliament has been mulling over Brexit for three years and debating it for some 500 hours. They now have 3 more days to consider coming to a decision., MPs received the 110-page WAB yesterday evening. Many chose to spend time moaning they wouldn't have time to read it before today's debate ... Perhaps if they'd got on with reading the bill rather than complaining, MPs would have got through it by now..."
Your Daily Brexit Betrayal (22 October 2019)
"[Y]esterday's session in the House of Posturing Peacocks ... [It] was the expected decision of the Speaker John Bercow to reject the clear vote on Johnson's deal. It felt like High Noon in the Westminster Corral, Bercow regarding himself as the sheriff. Reports say he spoke for eight minutes. Friends and colleagues - let me assure you, it felt as if was speaking for eight hours! ... His mantra is 'never use three words where ten will do as well' ... The time is running out for the Remain Harlots. Their bloviating, posturing and 'amending' so Brexit can be killed off is coming to an end..."
"Anti-Brexit MPs are outraged the government wants them to vote more than once on Brexit after they gave the wrong answer the first time - an ironic position given the determined push to have a second referendum on whether to leave the EU, as one Brexiteer member pointed Monday afternoon. Parliament was to vote on whether to accept PM Boris Johnson's new and improved Brexit 'deal' with the EU Saturday afternoon, but a wrecking amendment led to the government withdrawing the motion and a second being chalked in for Monday afternoon ... the speaker prevented the motion being debated and voted on again. The move was made citing a historical Parliamentary precedent, which finds asking MPs the same question again and again is an affront to their dignity because their first decision should be respected. Yet this begs the question why politicians should be afforded this privilege and not members of the public ... many MPs protected in this way are simultaneously campaigning tirelessly to force the British people to vote on Brexit for a second time - and maybe even a third - until they give the right answer and embrace the EU..."
Parliament Thwarts the Government Again (21 October 2019)
"As I thought, the government was not allowed to re run Saturday by tabling the WA for another vote today. The Speaker decided that Parliament had the chance to vote for the Agreement on Saturday and had voted instead not to support the Agreement in principle but instead to look at the draft legislation it would need first ... The Remain forces in Parliament may try to move a seasoned amendment to the second reading motion of the Bill to attach conditions to it..."
Your Daily Brexit Betrayal (21 October 2019)
"The Remain Harlots are working full-out to get a second Referendum, attached as amendment to the Withdrawal Bill. Their aim is, as we know, for us to Remain - in the Customs Union at the very least - and hopefully to get the whole thing revoked. This is now they hope to achieve it: ... our EU friends, so helpful with unbiased advice to our Remain MPs, are hoping the traitors and Quislings will achieve [the] revoking [of] Article 50 ... Meanwhile, a 'No Deal' is still possible if the Brexit wreckers wreck Johnson's timetable..."
YOUTUBE: A UK 'Logan Act' Would Have Stopped Remainers in Their Tracks (21 October 2019)
"If the UK had a law in place similar to the Logan Act in the USA, we would not have seen the shameful images and videos and Remainer MPS toddling off openly and happily to Brussels to undermine the official Brexit negotiations. The Logan Act ... came into force in the US back in 1799 and it criminalises any negotiations by unauthorised people with foreign powers that the US has a dispute with. Up until now we in the UK have had to rely on the honour of people like MPs to recognise the convention that the government negotiates for the country. But as we have seen throughout these Brexit talks, Remain-minded MPs have become more emboldened every day to flaunt their anti-Brexit activities..."
A Parliamentary Dictatorship (21 October 2019)
"This parliament is not simply out of touch with public sentiment ... It lacks all political and moral authority. It is a zombie parliament ... We now live under a parliament that is acting against the democratic interests of the people and which is preventing us from protesting about this fact at the ballot box. Such is their determination to stop Brexit that they have turned parliament into an entirely anti-democratic institution, into a tool of the elites against the public ... this parliament explicitly agitates against the will of the people, to the end of continuing to sacrifice this country's sovereignty and to outsource its law-making power to the foreign technocracy in Brussels..."
"Yet another extension! They're using a modern version of the medieval torture, 'The Rack', stretching us out for years until we scream for mercy, confess our sins of voting to Leave, recant, and convert to remain. The baying crowd of Peoples Voters and Remainiacs watch on in delighted glee as Brexit is slowly extended to death" [comment at source].
"Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets. For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him: But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance. We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company" (Psalm 55:11-14) [quoted at source].
"[T]hose who whet their tongues like swords and aim bitter words like arrows are often within; they dwell among us: 'Wickedness is in the midst thereof...' ... And so we see in Parliament that those who seek to honour the result of the 2016 EU Referendum sit alongside those who seek to frustrate Brexit: democracy meets anti-democracy; faithfulness encounters duplicity; loyalty faces dishonesty..."
YOUTUBE: Champion Boris Johnson Sticks Two Fingers Up at Parliament (20 October 2019)
"Parliament legislates to stop Brexit, and PM Johnson defies the spirit of the Surrender Act with a letter to the EU saying delay would 'damage' both sides" / Viewers' comments: "The greed and selfishness of these politicians is staggering" / "Quislings and traitors. They have the gall to say we must respect democracy as they sell out the nation's sovereignty to a foreign power in the face of a democratic mandate to leave that power. People have hung for less. Revolutions have started for less" / "[BJ] managed to outfox his opponents this time, but he hasn't taken the no-nonsense approach I would have liked. There are so many ways to nullify our membership of the EU, from considering the original agreement to be void due to lies by omission to repealing the 1972 ECA"
Your Daily Brexit Betrayal (20 October 2019)
"Yesterday wasn't so much a 'Super Saturday' ... In a nutshell, the Letwin Amendment was passed with Ayes: 322 to Noes: 306. Johnson had said in his statement that passing the Letwin amendment would make the vote on his deal meaningless. In his speech after the vote, Johnson said that he would 'obey the law' and sent the letter as demanded in that Bill but that he would not negotiate for an extension because the Bill does not oblige him to do that, it only forces him to send that letter ... he duly did send the latter but not as expected:..."
The Letwin Amendment is Unconstitutional (19 October 2019) (£)
"Standing Order No 14 of the Commons, which the Speaker agreed to waive, was introduced in the early 1940s. It gives priority to government business. That is of particular importance for international negotiations. For MPs cannot themselves negotiate, nor can the EU negotiate with MPs, but only with the government of the day. Treaties, therefore, have always been negotiated by the government and the Commons has not refused to ratify a treaty since 1864. Further, any extension of the Brexit date has public spending implications in terms of budgetary contributions to the EU - around £1bn a month. But Standing Order No 48 dating in any part from 1713 provides that only the Crown, which means, for practical purposes, the government of the day, can recommend public spending. The reason is obvious., Only ministers, not backbench MPs, can be responsible to the Commons for the expenditure of public money ... 'Smile at us'. Chesterton writes in his poem, The Secret People..."
"MPs this afternoon voted for Sir Oliver Letwin's amendment to the Government's motion endorsing Boris Johnson's Brexit deal so that MPs were unable to endorse the proposal in a Meaningful Vote, making the emergency 'Super Saturday' sitting tantamount to a farce. The Letwin amendment - passed by 322 votes to 306 (majority:16) - effectively turned the Government's motion into a neutral motion, with the aim of forcing ministers to seek an extension to the Article 50 period under the terms of the Benn Act..."
'Super Saturday' Vote on Boris Brexit Deal Cancelled by MPs (19 October 2019)
"British lawmakers have voted to postpone a decision on whether to back a Brexit deal with the EU ... At a special session of Parliament intended to ratify the deal, lawmakers instead voted 322-306 to withhold their approval until legislation to implement the agreement has been passed ... [it] means [the PM] has to ask the EU to delay Britain's departure - although he has told MPs he will not do so ... The move is intended to ensure the UK can't leave the EU without a deal on the scheduled Oct. 31 departure date."
How Sir Oliver Letwin Took Control and Denied Boris Johnson His Super Saturday (19 October 2019) (£)
"Sources confirmed that Sir Oliver was seen on the phone to Lord Pannick during his Downing Street visit [on Friday night], prompting one Tory source to say: 'This isn't Letwin's amendment, it's Pannick's amendment. Pannick is the organ grinder - Letwin's just the useful idiot' ... Mr Letwin, together with former Chancellor Philip Hammond and former Attorney General Dominic Grieve, began panicking early this month that if Mr Johnson did pull off a deal they would be powerless to stop Britain leaving the EU on Oct 31. So with the help of Lord Pannick they came up with a ruse - backed by Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson and Labour's Hilary Benn - to force Mr Johnson to request an extension even if his deal was passed by the Commons..."
"Lawmakers will first vote on whether to withhold approval until legislation to implement the agreement has been passed. That would bring another law into play that would force Johnson to seek a Brexit delay from the EU ... Speaker John Bercow said he would allow a vote on an amendment that essentially puts the vote on the deal off until another day. Those behind the amendment say it will remove the risk that the UK could leave the bloc without a deal on Oct 31st because the law is not in place ... If Letwin passes, No 10 will pull the vote: No 10 source: 'A vote for Letwin is a vote for delay and the Whips will send everyone home. A vote for Letwin means MPs voting to render the entire day, that they demanded, meaningless. It would perfectly sum up this broken Parliament. Bit the government will not negotiate delay - we will continue to argue that Britain and Europe should force MPs to choose between this deal and no deal. And we will introduce the legislation on Monday so we can get Brexit done on 31st October'..."
Parliament's Day of Reckoning (19 October 2019)
"As one of the most important days in years, possibly in decades, for UK politics and HofC history dawns, with Boris Johnson attempting to secure MPs' approval for his Brexit deal, how does the landscape look? It's worth bearing in mind, at the outset, why we are in this mess. It's because, essentially, we are saddled with a Remainer parliament resolved to frustrate the expressed will of the electorate that delivered the largest popular democratic mandate for one specific policy in this country's history ... Today will show, once again, the sheer extent of the demos-phobia embedded deep in the psyche of the majority of MPs that the Brexit vote and its aftermath has exposed. Hopefully it will be the last gasp of the creatures before the swamp is drained."
Brexit Deal Vote: Your Guide to the Amendments and the Scenarios (19 October 2019) (£)
"9.30am: Boris Johnson makes a statement to MPs urging them to back his deal. He will then face questions. 11am: At about this time the Speaker will reveal his chosen amendments. Among them is expected to be one by Sir Oliver Letwin. 2.30pm: Voting is due to start by this time. MPs will vote on the amendments first and it could be early evening before they go into the division lobbies for the meaningful vote. If the government loses it will put forward a motion seeking backing for a no-deal..."
Boris's 'Deal' Won't Take Back Control (21 October 2019)
"This is not a Brexit 'deal'. Boris Johnson is proposing more than deal. It is a treaty, a document that will regulate by force of law. A treaty is essentially a contract that sets out what the signatories can and cannot do. In other words, a treaty pre-determines and regulates future conduct. It takes issues out of the political sphere, in which the people engage in a dialogue with their elected representatives. And it places these issues in a technical sphere, in which the people and their elected representatives are mere observers of judges, who interpret what the treaty requires, and of technocrats, who do as the treaty requires ... Treaties of this natures are only entered into by states that have been conquered or defeated. In Britain's case, its political class has been defeated, at the ballot box by a public that voted in June 2016 to take back control. But rather than accept that power should return to the people, the UK's Remain-dominated elite would prefer to be ruled by a foreign institution, the EU, than by a parliament accountable to its electors..."
Wake Up, Brexiteers - BoJo's Deal Is What You Once Called Vassalage (20 October 2019)
"The Johnson deal ... would deliver Brexit in name only, leaving the UK still shackled to the EU - unable to do trade deals with the rest of the world free of EU regulations, unable to control its own defence or foreign policy and with laws that are passed by the Westminster parliament still subject, in some circumstances at least, to the ECJ ... Those who support the Johnson deal are either faux-Brexiteers who want the UK to leave but in terms that bind it to the EU in perpetuity, or don't much care if it is thus bound because they believe idiotically that the UK can be a little bt in and bound by the EU as well as being out and an independent sovereign nation. Such people didn't have a big problem with the May deal either, for those reasons. Or the Johnson deal supporters are Brexiteers who have been so spooked by the Remainer coup against the people that they believe the choice they face is between the Johnson deal and no Brexit,..."
Another Boris Choke (20 October 2019)
"The 'deal' announced so dramatically by Boris Johnson on Thursday is very little different from Theresa May's WA and PD ... Boris is found to have focused on the 'backstop' issue but left May's WA/PD virtually untouched; to be making us pay a vast sum for nothing - no good deal guaranteed - yet having to enact all the laws passed by the EU with no veto in the meantime and without the ability to repeal them. And that is 'taking back control'?..."
'No Surrender' - Ian Paisley, Nigel Farage Denounce Boris's Brexit Deal (19 October 2019)
"Mr Paisley recognised Brexit 'fatigue' might be pushing some Brexiteers to accepting it, but urged them to think again ... 'What is being delivered to us will change part of the Union, it will leave part of the Union behind ... Which part of Unionist do you not understand?' ... Nigel Farage, too, expressed his regret ... 'So many commentators, so many journalists today saying what a wonderful new deal it is, clearly haven't read it'..."
Boris's Deal - Triumph or Travesty? (19 October 2019)
"Boris Johnson has done what many said was impossible and wrested from the EU a change to the WA, as well as to the PD. It has been received by many as a diplomatic and negotiating triumph for a PM in office for only 85 days, managing to reopen the WA, to water down regulatory alignment and abolish the backstop. But was it really? How could the EU not have accepted it, the sceptic is bound to ask? How could they look such a gift horse in the mouth, with the bar already set so low by Mrs May's WA? And when in most respects it differs little from its thrice-rejected forebear?..."
A Door of Hope (18 October 2019)
"So Boris has got a deal! But the big question facing Christians in Britain is this - what is God saying to us? Is the hand of God inexorably guiding the nation towards a no deal outcome? ... Surely, Boris must know that whatever he presents to our rebellious Parliament on 'Super-Saturday' will have very little chance of being given the approval of the majority of our MPs. Even if the Archangel Gabriel appeared with a divinely approved deal, written in Heaven, it would be thrown out by this Parliament! ... I would seriously question the value of the deal, as I have no confidence that this Parliament will do anything righteous, or that anything agreed with the EU will be in the best interests of Britain..."
Not Much Has Changed - The Deal Is Still Dire (18 October 2019)
"Many who previously opposed this deal are now falling behind it because they believe the final destination of a Free Trade Agreement makes this a price worth praying. They believe that this 'gets Brexit done' rather than see further extension and delay imposed. This is sadly not the case and misses the key point. The current dire deal and impasse is due to a Remain dominated parliament and establishment. Accepting this poor deal will see the same parliament able to hobble the government towards agreeing FTA terms detrimental the UK's interests and beneficial to the EU..."
Once Again, Fishing Could Be Hung Out to Dry (18 October 2019)
"Since Boris Johnson became PM, the main Brexit emphasis has been on NI; unfortunately fishing has not been of equal importance. The consequence is that the new deal has kicked the can down the road, leaving the fishing industry and the British people's living marine resource in a precarious position. It comes down to the determination and the will of the Westminster Parliament, which gives one little cause for optimism. If we take the new version which is in italics, we can go through each relevant section:..."
Deal or No Deal? (18 October 2019)
"The WA is unchanged, so I have no need to update my comments on it which set out the problems with it, especially concerning the powers of the ECJ and the money. The PD is improved. It now make clearer that any joint military actions requires the consent of the UK government. More emphasis is given to basing a future trade relationship around a Free Trade Agreement. The Declaration whilst confirming we become an independent coastal state for fishing purposes puts our fish back into play with the prospect of a new fishing quota and access based agreement with the EU. It suggests the future agreement is based on an EU Association Agreement, designed to get countries to converge with the EU prior to joining. This is not a good model. The ECJ remains supreme over issues of EU law in any dispute. The reworked NI protocol raises the issue of how could NI extricate from following EU rules and customs practices? This is an important question, as this draft Withdrawal Treaty does not have an Article 50 allowing unilateral exit."

Leading Think Tanks Call for MPs to Reject 'Defective' Brexit Deal (18 October 2019)
"Think tanks The Bow Group and The Bruges Group, along with the pro-Brexit pressure group Fishing for Leave, have joined the DUP in opposing the government's new EU-approved proposed exit treaty ... the Bow Group believes the proposed deal 'fails to achieve sovereign independence of all the UK whilst committing to send in excess of £39 billion to the EU'. The think tank also warned that the PD - which sets out the future relationship between the UK and the EU - opens up the UK to regulatory alignment with the bloc as well as military cooperation, spending commitments, and abiding by Brussels' financial regulations 'which would potentially allow the EU and our parliament to further neuter Brexit. A no-deal Brexit remains the closest to honouring the Brexit vote and preventing its overturning by an unrepresentative parliament...'."

The Boris Johnson Brexit Deal (Digested) (18 October 2019)

The Johnson 'Deal' is a Remainer fantasy in which we stay in the EU, apologise (in cash) for annoying them with our silly referendum nonsense, and nothing at all changes. But don't worry, because under the Boris Deal we'll have a chat with our Euro chums about some details later. After we've agreed IT'S A DEAL. Nobody voted for a deal. We voted to leave. Leave means Leave ... This farce will continue until we turf every last one of the globalist stooge army OUT of our Parliament for good..."
President vs President... (18 October 2019)
"Tory Brexiteers in Parliament appear to be rowing in behind the new deal, despite the EU having made it clear that, excepting the contentious backstop arrangements for Northern Ireland, it leaves the terms of Theresa May's deal 'unchanged in substance' ... Johnson's version of the deal improves on the backstop insofar as it asserts NI will remain part of the UK customs union, but undermines this by adding that trade between mainland GB and the province will be subject to customs checks - one of the defining characteristics of not being in a customs union. NI will also be obliged to adopt the regulatory rules of the EU Single Market, which could result in major divergence between the province and the rest of the UK over the longer term ... European Commission: 'The revised Protocol responds to the unique circumstances on the island of Ireland with the aim of protecting peace and stability. All other elements of the WA remain unchanged in substance, as per the agreement reached on 14 November 2018'. "
Boris Achieves the Impossible: Putting Lipstick on the Dead Parrot (18 October 2019)
"Ignore all the gushing hype this morning, the incredulous gasps of admiration that Boris (Houdini) Johnson seems to have achieved the impossible and actually agreed with those die-in-the-ditch-intransigent Eurocrats withdrawal terms for the UK to leave the EU. There's only one question that matters. Is this actually Brexit, or is it Brexit in name only which will leave the UK still shackled to the EU? While I reserve final judgment until I've had the opportunity to study the small print, it looks horribly like the latter..."
Your Daily Brexit Betrayal (18 October 2019)
"Unless you were in a cave all day yesterday - no internet, no smartphones, no TV - you know by now that Johnson announced yesterday morning that 'We Have A Deal'. Pandemonium broke out across the twitter sphere and in the British TV studios. Our TV reporters needed their soundbites now! This minute! Immediately! ... Two things need to happen before this Deal can come into effect on Halloween: the 27 EU leaders have to agree to it in their summit meeting later today, and our MPs, Remainers, Leavers, the lot, will have to do so tomorrow ... Even if the 'Deal' goes through tomorrow - don't believe for a moment that it's now thankfully all over. It is not..."
This Flawed Deal Is A Tolerable Price To Pay For Our Freedom (18 October 2019)
"In very important respects, this deal is much better than Theresa May's deal. But using that deal - utterly atrocious from end to end - as a flawed benchmark for comparison greatly flatters the Johnson deal. If we ask whether it is a good deal compared with the deal which a competent government could have negotiated with the EU, the answer is undoubtedly 'no' ... The problem is that it is much more difficult to try to renegotiate an existing text than it would have been to get the right result at the more fluid stages of original negotiation. The second way to measure whether it or not it is a good deal is to test it against the alternative, which is not to have a WA under Article 50 at all, and instead to negotiate our future relationship with the EU after exit ... despite the marked improvements over the disastrous TM deal the revised deal is still overall a bad deal..."
The Revised WA and PD: A Briefing Note (17 October 2019)
"The Treaty permanently restricts our military independence, demands payment of an unspecified sum, prevents independent arbitration, grants EU officials immunity from UK laws, leaves us with EIB contingent liabilities running into tens if not hundreds of billions and will impose punitive laws on the UK during a transition which is likely to be extended until mid 2022 (just a few months before the next General Election). The PD is such that a future FTA with the EU is made unpalatable because it will restrict our policy and military independence as well as policies in trade, tax, fishing, environment, social and employment, competition and state aid. Free movement is replaced with vague notions of 'mobility' and 'non-discrimination'..."

Brexit Deal: Putting Lipstick On A Pig (17 October 2019)
"Boris Johnson has agreed his deal with the EU. Unfortunately it's as we expected, the reheated Theresa May Deal that Nigel Farage describes as putting lipstick on a pig. It's identical to May's deal with two changes: (1) In the WA the backstop has been replaced with what the EU calls a 'revised protocol for Ireland'; (2) In the PD the 'future arrangements' to be negotiated will be based on a Free Trade Agreement with Regulatory Alignment rather than a Customs Union. Here's the problem..."

If the other EU nations-leaders back the proposal, the agreement would go to the British parliament on Saturday for a vote.

"The year is 2128. The British Prime Minister, as every year, comes to Brussels and begs for an extension of the Brexit deadline. Nobody remembers where this strange custom came from, but it draws many tourists to the city" [comment at source].
Boris Govt Prepares For No Deal Brexit But EU Could Delay It Until 2020 (21 October 2019)

"It is tempting to move to the rivers of Babylon, sit down and weep. Boris Johnsons said he would rather 'be dead in a ditch'; than request another extension to EU captivity, but having lost another parliamentary vote he has obeyed the (letter of the) law and sent the letter mandated by Parliament requesting precisely that. We may still get Brexit by October 31st (which is Reformation Day throughout Europe), but it is looking increasingly unlikely ... Nothing worthwhile is easy..."
That Letter (20 October 2019)
"Yesterday I wrote about the Benn Act requiring the PM to send a letter asking for a delay to our exit date ... Today we need to think about what the PM should do over delay. The UK has already had to delay requests accepted . There does not seem to be any point in a further delay ... The debate about Brexit needs moving on ... a debate about the restoration of a free and independent country. We want an accountable democracy. This Parliament is the lackey of Brussels..."
Boris Johnson Refuses to Sign Brexit Extension Request... (19 October 2019)
"Boris Johnson has told the EU that he is 'not asking' for a 'deeply corrosive' delay to Brexit, as he ordered a senior diplomat to send an unsigned photocopy of the request drawn up by MPs asking Brussels for an extension ... along with a covering note saying that 'in accordance with the Benn Act here is the letter from the Benn Act' ... Earlier Mr Johnson told MPs: 'I will not negotiate a delay with the EU, and neither does the law compel me to'..."
Macron: EU May Not Grant Further Extension of MPs Reject New Brexit Deal (18 October 2019)
"Mr Macron said during a press conference at the end of the European Summit on Friday afternoon that he hopes the 31st October deadline is 'respected' and described the new deal as 'good' ... 'So that we can turn to the future I believe that we shall stick to the deadline of 31st October. That being said, I'm not trying to read the future, but I do not think we shall grant any further delay. I believe it is now time to put an end to these negotiations and work on the future relationship and put an end to what is currently ongoing.

Brexit Deal: Third Extension Is Still A Possibility (18 October 2019) (£)
"The EU is on standby to hold an emergency summit in ten days time to agree a third delay to Brexit. In a blow to Boris Johnson, EU leaders refused yesterday to rule out another extension - which would have helped him to put pressure on the Commons to back a deal ... Some EU leaders and senior officials have not hidden their desire for a longer extension, to next June or even later, tied to conditions requiring Britain to rethink Brexit..."
"President of the EC Jean Cluade-Juncker has told reporters Brexit 'has to happen now' and there will be no deadline extension - MPs must accept Boris Johnson's new deal or leave without one ... there could be no further prolongation of the Brexit process, despite Remain MPs having passed a law ordering PM Boris Johnson to ask the EU for yet another delay unless Parliament agrees to a deal or a clean no-deal break ... It should be noted that the decision to accept or reject another extension of the Brexit deadline is in the Council's gift, not the Commission's - although it seems unlikely Juncker would rule it out in the presence of chief negotiator Barnier if he did not have the Council's tacit backing."
Extension Rebellion: Juncker Rules Out More EU Delay (17 October 2019)
"Commission President Juncker has confirmed to Sky News' Beth Rigby that he has ruled out granting an extension to the UK. If the EU refuses an extension, [then] choice for MPs is genuinely this New Deal or No Deal , no matter how much parliamentary trickery they engage in... Beth Rigby: NEW: 'We just doorstopped Juncker and he told us explicitly that he is ruling out extension. He said we have a deal so we don't need one' ."
MPs To Get Choice Between Deal or No Deal on Saturday (17 October 2019)
"Jacob Rees-Mogg has announced that on Saturday's sitting, MPs will be presented with a single motion, presenting a choice between Boris's new negotiated deal and no deal. This will be entirely compliant with the provisions of the Benn Act, as by voting against the deal MPs would have given consent to leaving on the 31st without a deal. Genius in its simplicity..."
Jean-Claude Juncker Finds A Way Around the Benn Act (17 October 2019)
"The EU Commission president appeared to rule out an extension being offered to the UK if no deal is agreed ... No. 10's hope has been that the EU simply refuse to offer an extension ... as it means his government no longer need an obscure loophole to the Benn Act. What's the point in asking for an extension (as the so-called Surrender Bill dictates) when the answer will be no? Cross-party MPs may have a majority on the Commons to try and prevent no deal but they have no such ability to force the EU to act in any given way..."

Now all of a sudden Remainers want to deny Parliament having it say - they've never been subtle about showing their true motives... It's still likely Parliament's unusual Saturday sitting will go ahead, however this jitter clearly shows the fear Remainers now have that Boris is on the verge of clinching a deal and securing Brexit.

"Despite the Benn Act forcing Boris Johnson to ask the EU for an extension, the UK government is committed to leaving the EU by 31st October ... Boris did NOT say he will get a brexit extension. He simply confirmed to the court that he won't avoid extension by breaking the law (so he will just send 'the letter'). The surrender act can't stop us from leaving" / Viewer's comment: "I find it amazing that they are using the courts to defeat democracy. Shameful"
YOUTUBE: The Truth About Boris' New Brexit Deal (03 October 2019)
"During the Conservative conference, Boris Johnson announced his new brexit proposal regarding the Irish border to replace the backstop. The EU and Remainers are currently opposing the new ideas, making no deal Breixt more likely ... A lot of people ask about fisheries and armed forces. EU's military plans won't apply to us with this deal as well as no deal (obviously). The same applies to fisheries and our waters, which will be free. Unlike under Theresa May's deal" / Viewers' comments: "I still think the commons will reject this deal even if the EU don't because they want to stay in the EU come hell or high water" / "This is NOT a good deal. Once again trapped in a transition period. Paying billions more. Subject to EU laws. Not OUT" / "No Deal is the best deal. It automatically guards against small print and clauses subject to 'interpretation'. The whole world, full of countries eager to trade with the UK, can understand 'No Deal' without having to hire a brigade of lawyers!" / "We should make a deal with the EU only AFTER we have left" / "No ties, no shackles, no fees (for a trade deficit), no transition period, no ECJ, no delay to new trade deals, no Single Market, no Customs Union, no Surrender Treaty" / "The litmus test for me is Mark Francois and Steve Baker. If the deal is good enough for them then it's probably a compromise we can live with. Although I would prefer to just leave on WTO terms and be done with it"
Surrender: "Hand over; relinquish possession of, especially on compulsion or demand; give into another's power or control; accept an enemy's demand for submission; to give oneself up; cease from resistance; submit" [OED].
Humbug: "Deceptive or false talk or behaviour" [OED].
Hypocrisy: "The assumption or postulation of moral standards to which one's own behaviour does not conform; dissimulation, pretence" [OED] / In other words: "For me but not for thee" or "It's alright when we do it"
Cant: "Insincere pious or moral talk" [OED].
Projection: "Assigning one's own prejudices onto others" or "The unconscious transfer of one's own feelings to external persons" [OED]. / "The ethos of victimisation has an endless capacity not only for exculpating one's self from blame ... but also for projecting guilt onto others" [quoted at source]. / "This mind-boggling trait whereby some people will literally reverse the truth ... individuals accuse another party of a characteristic that in fact applies to the first (accusing) party, and most definitely not the second (innocent) party. This is a clever ploy to move the spotlight from the cause of the problem to a different, sometimes timid or reserved target/victim" / "It is just projection ... People always project their true nature onto the 'enemy', the other" [comments at 'Demonising the Victim', The Spectator, 18 March 2009].

Britain Stands On the Brink of Brexit Victory (19 October 2019)
"No, I don't mean Boris Johnson's new deal, which may or may not prevail ... the longer Brexit has been delayed by the corrupt, failing Establishment, the more we Brexiteers have become aware that we are the majority, that we're the ones with both justice and common sense on our side, and that we're not going to take no for an answer ... the Remainers are fighting against the tide of history ... the despicable globalists are on the way out and the populists are on the ascendant ... the good, decent, sensible, value-creating, hard-working, straight-talking, pub-bantering, p***-taking real people are on the verge of trouncing the politically correct, social-justice-worshipping, humourless, economy-draining, finger-wagging, parasitical nonentities who've been ruling the roost these last few years..."
What Is A Fair and Effective Act of Parliament? (19 October 2019)
"Today given the fluid and uncertain constitutional background created by Remain campaigners and lawyers, we need to ask are there any limits on what laws Parliament can pass? let us take three prospective cases of possible Acts of Parliament: ... These hypothetical proposals show the difficulties of having a minority government and taking away from it the sole right to initiate legislation. The country can become ungovernable with a headstrong Parliament that cannot supply a majority government yet refuses an election."

Labour louts had placed a banner across a bridge in Manchester, with Tories hung underneath in effigy and then tweeted the images of their efforts ... 'It's alright when we do it' ...

The Establishment Can't Win Elections, So Try to Destroy Their Opponents Instead (30 September 2019)
"In Britain - the Remainers know they can't beat Boris Johnson fairly at the ballot box. In fact, they're terrified he might win by a landslide and take the UK out of the treacherous Remainers' beloved German-run EU. So, instead they try to destroy him. Here are just some of the methods used by the 'Get Boris' campaign:
"I have only admiration for Boris Johnson as he maintains his calm and good humour when confronted by such an onslaught of hatred, hypocrisy, dishonesty, vilification and lies ... Democracy is based on the principle of 'Losers' Consent'. That means when one side loses an election or referendum, they accept the result in the knowledge that they'll have their chance to win the next time voters are consulted. But in the UK, the Remainers have never accepted the 2016 Referendum result and have fought tooth and nail to block it without daring to consult voters..."
Britain's Remoaner Parliament Is An Embarrassing Joke (29 September 2019)
"Can there ever have been a period in history - even in the turmoil of the years leading up to the Civil War - when Parliament lost the plot quite so spectacularly? ... 'All MPs swear an oath to "be faithful and bear true allegiance" to the Queen. If any of these Remainers are found to have colluded with a foreign power to undermine the policy of Her Majesty's Government, they should be booted out of office immediately' ... Britain's Parliament used to be a shining example - the envy of the civilised world. Now it is an embarrassment and a joke. And the fault for this lies entirely with the Remainer liberal elite who have hijacked Britain's constitution and subverted it to their own anti-democratic interests. There are many words to describe what they have done to our country and what kind of people they are - 'traitors' barely scratches the surface..."
The Evil Left (29 September 2019)
"I can honestly say that I have never seen anything quite like the disgraceful and disgusting farce that our Parliament has now become and we are forced to witness this spectacle on a daily basis. The most worrying thing is that now in Parliament and Government alike, in an effort to thwart the will of the 17.4 million people who voted to leave the EU, all pretence of democracy has been cropped and our Constitution ripped to shreds. Worse still it seems to me that this current Brexit farce is just a distraction for something much more sinister. I urge you all to watch this video:..."

That is what this straightforward word surrender means..."
Is Jo Cox Buried in the Church of Christ the Remainer? (26 September 2019)
"I first met humbug full on when attending a literary festival in Oxford, in April 2017 ... Humbuggers believe, or say they do, that discussing a difficult issue, immigration, race, biological gender, climate change, colonialism, should be stopped, as speaking about it will cause people to be physically hurt. For some, speech is the same thing as physical abuse. Even the affectionate little word 'humbug' can be an abuse. Until Boris Johnson's return to the Commons this week, I thought this kind of pious nonsense belonged only to identitarian extremists. Not at all, the Labour Left are now wielding a giant humbug shaped like a club, to try to close down all debate even in the Commons..."
Let Jo Cox Rest in Peace, You Ghouls (26 September 2019)
"A new low was reached in British politics last night. Remainer MPs and their online cheerleaders exploited the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox to try to silence their critics and demonise Brexit. These ghouls stood up in the Commons and physically pointed to Cox's plaque as they denounced Boris for using allegedly dangerous words like 'surrender' and 'betrayal' ... Using a murder victim as a debate-ender? Shame on you ... It increasingly feels like sections of the political class are losing the plot. We now have a situation in which they are betraying Brexit while also raining fury upon anyone who says the word' betrayal. They are behaving like traitors to the democratic vote of 2016 that they promised to uphold, and yet they rage against any use of the word 'traitor'. Not content with frustrating the will of the people, they now want to control what the people can say about it all ... They call us fascists, Nazis, racists, extremists, idiots, etc etc. They use perjorative language about Brexit supports all the time. In then turning around and saying 'How dare you call us traitors!', they expose their shameless hypocrisy..."
Four Times Remainers Used 'Toxic' Language (26 September 2019)
"The HofC completely lost the plot last night, as Remainer MPs blasted Boris Johnson for using the word 'surrender' ... Hysterical MP after hysterical MP stood up and said Johnson's language of 'betrayal' and 'surrender' was putting their lives at risk. But a cursory Google search, or a memory longer than last week, reveals that many of these people have said far worse things about their political opponents ... using the word 'surrender' to describe an act of parliament is apparently mad and dangerous. But talking about knifing, decapitating and lynching one's opponents is fine. Suggesting that Remainers are enemies of democracy when they try to, er, thwart democracy is inflammatory and toxic. But saying that pro-Brexit MPs are actual fascists is, if anything, a little on the cautious side..."

It was especially worth it because, comparing what I and so many others watched unfold with the reports in today's MSM, I can say that their Remain credentials are intact ... At the end of 11½ hours of parliamentary theatre, I rubbed my eyes and asked myself if this was really why the Remainers wanted Prorogation stopped by all and any means. This drubbing by Messrs Cox, Johnson and Rees-Mogg cannot have been what they expected..."
"Mr Johnson put in a top quality performance in which he lambasted the pro-EU vermin, who occupy seats across the House, for their obstruction of the people's decision to leave the EU in 2016 ... in his grasp of basic facts and his calling out of opposition party hypocrisy. This is Parliament as it should be, with the PM going out to bat for Britain and not meekly acquiescing to the whatever the EU want Britain to do ... He didn't bend the knee when various MPs tried to virtue-signal or shame him by shroud waving Jo Cox's name about and neither did Mr Johnson back down to loud whining from the pro-EU MPs about his use of the word 'surrender' to describe Benn-Burt legislation. Mr Johnson told it like it is..."

The Effects on Brexit
"The Supreme Court has ruled against the proroguing of Parliament and the 17.4M people that voted for Brexit. This decision today is an attack upon Her Majesty the Queen and the English people. Gina Miller and the liberal elite have sought from day one to deny us Brexit and our basic democratic rights... now they have succeeded. As of today, our democratic rights and our ancient liberties are no more. What has become of our once great Nation? Wealthy, liberal elites have stolen the power and sovereignty of the people through the executive of Parliament and subjected the will of the people to the tyranny of wealthy, foreign demagogues. Who is actually in charge of our Nation: Gina Miller or the English people? Sign our National Petition and demand the immediate implementation of no-deal Brexit by the Prime Minister. God save our Queen, God bless England; we will have our Brexit, one way or the another."
Supreme Court: On Shaky Ground (28 September 2019)
"[T]he Supreme Court were unconvincing in stating that their judgement was not about Brexit. The Court ignores the reasons why no deal is still an issue including the difficulties made for the PM by parliament and the way in which Brussels has played fast and loose with its own rules. The use of judicial power to try to thwart the biggest vote in British history represents an outrageous intrusion into politics by eleven individuals none of who we can vote out..."
The Saga So Far (25 September 2019)
"It continues. This is becoming more and more alarming and the established elite more and more remote. The Supreme Court has rued that Boris Johnson's proroguing of Parliament was unlawful, and MPs have gone back to work; many of them with the sole intention of preventing Brexit. The fact that we are still debating this is a sign of the peril we are in ... This has been an entirely unprecedented period in British politics. The gap between Parliament and the people has never been wider. Parliament is openly defying a democratic mandate and is in total opposition to the voting public. This cannot continue indefinitely, but while there are so many vested interests in its continuance, that may tragically be the reality. Remainers will stop at nothing, politicians believe they are untouchable, and the people at the bottom of the ladder watch as their vote is rendered void. There is only one answer, do what it takes to get out now, then clean up the HofC permanently."
Your Daily Brexit Betrayal (25 September 2019)

Reader's comment: "Is it a civil war or is it a coup attempt or is it both? If it is a civil war then there is no reasoning behind it other than those who want independence supported by the referendum of the people against the colonial power supported by the ruling establishment. If it is a coup attempt then it is a scheme to overthrow the government of the country. And this was made clear when the government was sidelined in the Supreme Court judgement. So it is both a civil war and an attempted coup. Who is winning? Unless the opposition attain power by holding an election or declare a dictatorship and put the Cabinet in jail, then like Quan Guido in Venezuela, they can huff and puff with the aid of the media and the colonial power in the EU, but until then the Executive have control of the apparatus of State and looks like the way it is going to stay..."
Another reader's comment: "I have never seen such a filthy, despicable cesspit o corruption, lies and deceit ... It's taken Trump years to clear his judiciary, remember how they kept reversing his policies, they're still trying but he has turned the tide against them. Unfortunately we haven't even started to clear out our judiciary or any of our other institutions either. The fact that Parliament and the Judiciary have, in their desperation to stop Brexit, given up any pretense of democracy is very worrying. These people must realise that 17.4 million people will not accept this and as with all totalitarian regimes, when people no longer believe their lies, then they resort to subjugation, force and violent tyranny. As far as I know, we still have ten thousand troops from other EU countries on our soil and Eurogendfor I'm sure, are waiting in the wings with bated breath ... the EU are in the process of acquiring a military and have just about done so. This has been a very, very carefully planned and executed coup, the planning probably started straight after the Brexit referendum if not before and I'm sure Theresa May was included in this process"
More Readers' comments: "If we cannot overturn a decision to suppress our own sovereignty then we are already slaves. Those Judges who have voiced an opinion publically on their personal interest in the UK membership of the EU, or have, or had, some vested interest in the UK's membership of the EU, are partial and therefore not fit to judge this particular case. It must be quite clear that Judges themselves are not above the law" / "The Supreme Court was in recess until October, who gave them permission to sit out of time" / "To get a hearing at the supreme court can take months and years, how did a member of the public cut through the normal red tape. Is Miller British, and who financed this action, there needs to be lots of questions answered" / It should amaze me that a foreigner has been allowed to use our courts to impose her beliefs and her agenda on the native British people. Of course, with all the recent shenanigans it is no surprise. Those various institutions originally set up to protect and govern us in a sensible manner have all been hijacked by those such as Miller with evil motives"

Granted, its judgment goes against centuries of convention and judicial precedent that matters of high politics are not allowable subjects of litigation. But we are where we are. All that surprises me is that the Remainers are so committed to stopping Brexit that there is no part of the Constitution they are not prepared to feed into their political shredding machine.

Fascist Politics and Law Imprison the People (24 September 2019)
"The extent to which the corporatist political British establishment has now captured and overturned the democratic process has never been clearer. Arbitrary law, ignoring the will of the people, the denial of elections and unelected judges overturning Government - it is difficult to define Fascist politics more succinctly ... The judges ... state, with obnoxious hypocrisy, that they are defending: 'parliamentary sovereignty - that Parliament can make laws which everyone must obey' - but this parliament can do no such thing and has not been able to do so for 46 years. Strange that whenever a case seeks to re-affirm the sovereignty of the British people it fails (the 1972 Ross McWhirter case, the Rees-Mogg case, the 1993 Treason charges, the Tilbrook case, etc, etc) while the cases which have the opposite effect succeed. That is rightly seen as that ultimate expression of fascism - arbitrary law. The stench of Judges' abject hypocrisy again:..."
A Sinister, Nebulous Shadow Government Is Holding Brexit Hostage (24 September 2019)
"Today's decision by Britain's Supreme Court is shocking but not remotely surprising. Essentially a cabal of Remainer Establishment stooges in gold-braided judicial robes voted, nem con, to raise their middle fingers to British democracy and to punish PM Boris Johnson for his temerity in trying to deliver Brexit ... it was yet another power play by the Remainer Establishment which for over three years now has done everything it possibly can to frustrate the democratically expressed wish of the British people to leave the EU ...Today it was the senior judiciary's turn to swing the wrecking ball ... The Supreme Court is a very unBritish and very recent institution - a hangover from the Tony Blair era, established as recently as 2005 - designed to realign Britain's old-established legal system with the more modish (as Blair would have seen it) and EU friendly Continental model. With this decision, it has peremptorily arrogated to itself the most extraordinary powers to meddle in areas hitherto considered beyond its purview ... This is very worrying for the future of British democracy..."
The Effects on the British Constitution, Law, Politics, Democracy, Sovereignty, the Monarchy
Gloating Liberals May Soon Regret the Power Now Being Wielded by SC Judges (29 September 2019)
"We were warned from the start that the new 'Supreme Court' would be a menace, by people who well understood what was going on. But as usual nobody did anything to stop it. Britain's slow-motion Left-wing revolution just carried on, rolling over old and trusted rules and institutions, and crushing them into dust. Last week the court made a swift and cat-like grab for power, its sharp claws flashing as it swiped at Downing Street. This, unlike so many of the things wrongly said to be 'historic', was a truly huge change in the way we are governed ... If not swiftly and firmly curbed, the Court can now use equally vague and feeble pretexts to start striking down any government action it does not like, urged on by wealthy individuals or corporations who share its liberal world view ... The old court of final appeal, a committee of Law Lords, never called itself 'Supreme'. It understood that the Crown in Parliament is the only supreme thing in our Constitution ... the [SC] judges dangerously evaded Britain's most fundamental constitutional statute, the 1689 Bill of Rights. This declares: 'Proceedings in parliament ought not to be impeached or questioned in any Court of Place out of Parliament.' In other words, the courts are simply forbidden from interfering with Parliament..."
The Unconstitutionality of the Supreme Court's Prorogation Judgment (28 September 2019)
"The Supreme Court's judgment in Miller/Cherry  UKSC 41 holds that parliamentary sovereignty needs to be judicially protected against the power of the Government to prorogue Parliament. But the Judgment itself undercuts the genuine sovereignty of Parliament. by evading a statutory prohibition - art. 9 of the Bill of Rights 1689 - on judicial questioning of proceedings in parliament. The Judgment was wholly unjustified by law..."
Britain's Remoaner Establishment Is Fomenting Civil War (26 September 2019)
"'The last time we were in territory like this it was decided by civil war.' One thing I love about British constitutional historian and national treasure David Starkey is that he's never knowingly understated. Another thing I love about Starkey is that he's always right about everything. So I think we should take very seriously his damning verdict on the disgraceful decision by Britain's Supreme Court that it has the right to meddle in affairs, which, for centuries, have been left to parliament ... 'They are inventing new law. This is dangerous ... The events since the referendum have broken the English constitution... Shattered it into pieces. This is an act of utter vandalism' ... He's expressing what many of us in Britain feel ... but can't so easily articulate: this sense that our country, whose laws and traditions and customs were once the envy of the world, no longer belongs to us ... One thing we can safely bet on ... is that not one of [these judges] is a Brexiteer. These are Blair's people..."
Judicial Review? No, Judicial Vandalism (25 September 2019)
"This upstart body, barely 10 years old, has managed to poison the spirit of a constitution that has existed for centuries. Whatever the official charter of this retarded child, it was conceived by Blair and delivered by Brown for one overarching purpose: to act as the British gauleiter of the European Court of Human Rights. Its shrill birth cry muffled the quiet voice of the world's oldest and most successful polity ... By contrast, the post of the Lord Chancellor predates the Norman Conquest, while that of the Lord Chief Justice has existed since 1268. Thus their legitimacy is organic, a product of the entire history of the realm, rather than recent political shenanigans. These two offices have been remarkably, uniquely successful in preserving our constitution through historical vicissitudes and tribulations. That's why they had to be supplemented - and in this case superseded - by another institution, concocted by a government that did more than any other to undermine that constitution. A fortnight ago, the holder of one of those ancient offices, Lord Chief Justice Burnett, ruled that the prorogation was a political, not legal, matter. Enter the Supreme Court, the illegitimate child of politicking. But of course it's a legal matter, ruled the 11 judges, all passionate Remainers..."
God Save Our Queen: Elizabeth R Dragged Into the Brexit Imbroglio (25 September 2019)
"Before Tony Blair set up a separate Supreme Court ... the delicate balance between legislature, executive courts and Crown was something to behold ... it worked. The seismic re-writing of an un-written constitution by 11 unelected unremovable justices over the prorogation of parliament effectively abolishes the Royal Prerogative exercised by British PMs for centuries. It begins the unravelling of the notion that the PM and the Government represent the 'Queen-in-Parliament' and on matters in which parliament itself does not preclude them, can exercise executive authority. From now on, many, maybe most things, will be ultimately decided not in parliament by elected MPs but in courts by unelected judges..."
Lawfare - Politics Is Now Waged Through the Courts (25 September 2019)
"In the UK our Supreme Court has validated a power-grab over the Executive by the Legislature ... do not fall for the notion that this was anything other than the Supreme Court wading into the political arena ... What we are seeing is a Remain Establishment using judicial processes and seeking disclosures from a weak Executive attempting to implement the will of the people as expressed in the only democratic instrument offered, all the while keeping their own machinations and collaborations with the EU a closely-guarded secret ... how it all resolves will depend on the people's stomach for a fight to protect their historic rights and liberties. These include a proper balance of powers:..."
Today's Blog - Censored! (25 September 2019)
"[T]he prorogation of Parliament was perfectly legal and normal practice during the conference season and prior to a Queen's Speech. What the judges have done is to declare the prorogation illegal by imputing a motive to Boris Johnson for proroguing Parliament when he denies that motive and when there is no evidence supporting the judges' interpretation of that motive ... the judges' decision is a massive victory for the privileged Establishment elites. In the future, if we ordinary plebs ever vote the 'wrong' way, then those with money will be able to challenge the election results in the courts and probably manage to overturn those election results. Moreover, if any future government tries to implement any policy the elites disagree with, then the elites can challenge that policy in the courts by imputing an illegal motive to that policy however legal that policy actually is. In one fell swoop, the courts have usurped democratically-elected governments. A truly disastrous day for Britain..."
This Immoral, Illegal Power Grab by Leftie Judges (25 September 2019)
"The historic usurpation of the prerogatives of the executive by the judiciary vandalises the British constitution and tramples over the Bill of Rights that expressly prohibits the interfering of the courts in the proceedings of parliament. Unable to see past their prejudices on a single issue, Brexit, the justices have fundamentally altered the time-tested balance of powers in the British constitution. Expect many more political decisions now to be brought before the courts, and unaccountable judges to make political decisions that should be made by those who face the voters. The justices have unanimously ruled that the prorogation was unlawful But under what law? ... The Supreme Court has just arrogated to itself the power to make constitutional law, establishing by its own authority that lawful political decisions must be justified to judges or be overturned. The government would be well within its rights to ignore the ruling - though it's clear it won't ... The court's power should be curbed back to its historic limits by government legislation as soon as there is realistic opportunity..."
This prorogation itself may not matter much, but the Supreme Court's decision nonetheless raises disturbing issues. Who should make the law, on what basis, and to whom should those who make the law be accountable? In principle, new laws should be made by Parliament. MPs are then accountable if the voters dislike the laws they have passed. The role of the courts is to apply the law and assess evidence as to whether the defendants have obeyed them. The courts have to interpret statues, but they do so primarily according to the wording of the Act, not what the judges think the Act should have said. Common Law has developed on the basis of precedent: when the courts come across a new situation, they look for the principles inherent in previous related cases and apply those to the new situation. At least that used to be position in this country..."
Supreme Tangle (24 September 2019)
"First reaction to the Supreme Court ruling on the prorogation: What in the name of all that the law holds dear are they talking about? Lady Hale ... knows a thing or two, but one wonders whether her personal views, which she has not been shy of expressing, are coming out in this. The point about a judicial review is that a decision can only be overturned if it is made without authority, or outwith the extent of that authority or the purposes for which that authority was given. If the authority is from an Act of Parliament, you read the Act. For a prerogative power, there is no Act to read to tell the purposes for which the power exists. On what basis then is the decision made? The full text of the judgment is telling. The relevant sections are not law: they are politics:..."
Goodbye British Constitution (24 September 2019)
"The importance of the Supreme Court Judgment - and it is seismic - ... is not about any effect it will have on the prospects for Brexit ... Of infinitely greater importance is the axe the Supreme Court judges have taken to the delicate but hitherto sacrosanct separation between politics and the courts ... the judges have crossed a fateful line. The issue was not whether the PM was wrong to have prorogued parliament. The issue was that this was a matter for parliament itself to decide. It should not have been a matter for the courts. In deciding that it was, the judges resorted to circular or straw man arguments ... The British constitution is now on the ropes. Parliament has set itself against the people; MPs have paralysed government by arrogating its powers to themselves, aided by a partisan Speaker, while refusing to allow the proper remedy for any alleged loss of trust in government by allowing the people to decide in a general election. The Supreme Court made no mention of this truly appropriate remedy. Instead, it trampled sown the delicate membrane setting the judiciary apart from the political process, an essential component of English liberty and Britain's once uniquely effective democracy..."
The United Kingdom Is No Longer A Constitutional Monarchy (24 September 2019)
"Her Majesty's constitutional powers to advise and warn her Prime Minister, or even in extremis to refuse his or her advice, are now subject to the judgments of the Supreme Court. If the Queen wills it, the Supreme Court can unwill it. If the Queen does not will it, the Supreme Court can oblige her to will it. The orders of the Monarch are justiciable. This is a seismic constitutional shift in the United Kingdom, if not an unglorious revolution. We are now ruled by 11 Justices of the Supreme Court - unelected, unaccountable and unimpeachable..."

It is an 'anywhere' court, not a 'somewhere' court ... What it decided [did not correspond] to the existing state of English law ... Only a few days ago the three most senior judges in England ... sitting as the High Court, ruled without any doubt that the case that was brought by Gina Miller was not justiciable - in other words, that the law had no regard over a prorogation..."

It is interesting to compare [the SC's judgment] with the Baldrick-free judgment on exactly the same case given by the old-fashioned High Court on September 11. That court - three very clever English judges - said simply that the prorogation of Parliament was a political affair and none of their business. This is what any English court would have said at any time in the past two centuries of parliamentary democracy..."
Why Boris Must Not Resign (25 September 2019)
"Needless to say, this looks like a political decision by the SC, not a straight legal one ... the President of the SC, lady Hale, questioned the government's barrister in hostile fashion and ... the court [questioned] the government as to what it should do if it lost the case, seeking to guide the political process itself ... the courts have no right to question this right [to prorogue] nor question the PM's reason for prorogation, let alone bad motives, or reasons which judges might not like ... Why did the SC not adjudicate on the lawfulness of the Speaker's behaviour while they were looking at a menu of Brexit-related issues?..."

'No disrespect to the judiciary', he began - using the time-honoured formula ... meaning 'Maximum disrespect, actually ... that court decision was wrong.' His prorogation of parliament, Boris went on to insist, was essentially a political event - and therefore one which ought to be beyond the jurisdiction of the judiciary..."

Judicial Enemies of the People Sabotage Brexit Again (24 September 2019)
"Let's not waste time poring over the legal niceties of its decision. This is a coup by the judicial establishment, the vast majority of which happens to be comprised of shameless, doctrinaire Remainers ... It is one of the most basic principles of any functioning democracy that the judiciary is fair, just and impartial - and recognised as such by the majority of the people it serves. With today's decision, this patently isn't the case. The Supreme Court - the very unEnglish creation of that constitutional meddler Tony Blair - is a politicised institution which swings heavily towards Remain and the liberal left. The judges are holding Boris Johnson's government hostage, rendering it incapable of responding to the democratic will..."
Supreme Folly (24 September 2019)
"The Sun was hit was an unprecedented wave of hundreds of letters expressing anger at the judges' decision: 'How can the ruling be a victory for democracy when the biggest democratic vote we have ever had is being overturned?' / 'What a surprise. The Supreme Court, mostly made up of Remain-voting judges, has ruled against Boris Johnson' / 'As expected, the Supreme Court voted against Johnson, giving the undemocratic politicians and money people the heads up to dismiss any government action they don't like - that's not democracy. The case was based on losing five parliamentary days preventing discussions - well they've had three and a half years to discuss Brexit, and what have they accomplished?' / 'Parliament is about to be recalled so we can listen to that useless bunch of braying donkeys attempting to belittle and hamstring our PM for another five weeks. What is the point of voting?' / 'The elite now have an avenue to contest the 'will of the people' or decisions that any future Government wish to enact'..."
A Tyranny of Judges (24 September 2019)
"In finding that Boris Johnson's proroguing of parliament was unlawful, and that parliament is not prorogued, the 11 justices have made an explicitly political decision in favour of the Remainer elite ... This was a decisively political act by 11 unelected judges who have taken sides against the government of the day, and this opens up a new, dark era in British political life. What we have seen emerge via this judgement is a borderline tyrannical layer in British politics. A layer that stands above everyone and everything, including the government itself..."
Reader's comment: "That is not how the law works. If proroguing was illegal, show me the law. The legal basis in the judgement is that proroguing prevented MPs holding the government to account, and this makes it invalid. But proroguing always has this effect. Always. It has done every time for centuries. You cannot prorogue, or end a session, without that effect. And as this effect has been ruled illegal, this makes every queen's speech illegal. This ruling also destroys the precedent that political decisions cannot be overruled by the courts. It is hard to find a more political decision! And yet the court has decided that they do have the authority, shocking no one. This places the courts above the law makers, and indeed above the government and the crown. It's this that makes this decision so concerning. It does not heed to the existing constitution, nor does it hark back to previous cases and precedent. It is new law, made by unelected judges on the basis of their whims. This ruling is, in effect, that Brexit justifies the court in making whatever decision that it wishes, without the need to discuss the law or even the arguments"
More readers' comments: "This decision is going to backfire very badly. If the SC can overturn any government decisions then there is no point at all in having a parliament, and in that case the electorate, sorry, ex-electorate are now unrepresented. In that case, 'No taxation without representation' must be the cry. Their ruling inter alia also states that if the PM lied then the Queen accepted the lie (which makes her an accessory) OR she did not know what she was approving. We are in very dangerous territory indeed" / "An arrogant and exclusive self-perpetuating elite with a cynical contempt for democracy and fear of a free media. Attributes if all deeply hypocritical dictatorships" / "Can someone who knows about how these things work explain to me 'How these anti-Brexiteers' get their cases heard so quickly?" / "This 'court' set up by Blair is an affront to the British constitution which is now in ruin. The Civil War of 1642 started with less" / "Miller has managed to buy her votes and has made a mockery of Parliamentary Sovereignty in the process. I hope [MPs] enjoy their just rewards, simply because there will be no end of future litigation by rich elites if they don't agree with future policy or law. The will of the people is now dead as a concept in Europe. How sad for our forebears who had to die in order to hand back European democracy 75 years ago"

The Law, the Judiciary, the Supreme Court
From the Rule of Law to the Rule of Lawyers (26 September 2019) (£)
"Until 10 years ago, almost to the day, the most senior judges in the land sat in the House of Lords. Along with the government they formed an integral part of parliament, while maintaining their independence. No other country in the world had both its judiciary and its executive embedded within the legislature. The head of the judiciary, the Lord Chancellor, even sat in the Cabinet. All that changed when Tony Blair's Labour government decided, for no obvious reason, to dismantle what had been a perfectly workable, if somewhat haphazard, constitutional settlement. But if the reason was not obvious, the consequences have subsequently become apparent..."
There's No Such Thing as 'The Supreme Court'... (22 September 2019)
"...and the body that wrongly calls itself this should stay out of politics ... They can call it that if they like, but the title is a fiction ... Until we leave the EU, our actual Supreme Court is, as it has been for many years, the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg. But if we ever manage to escape from the EU, then Parliament is a far higher court than this self-important assembly of lawyers in suits ... The nasty thing has been grafted on to our free constitution by Blairite revolutionaries - many of them Left-wing lawyers ... this tiny, self-important group of men and women realised that they had an astonishing power. They were allowed to decide what the law meant. And nobody could challenge them ... The readiness of the courts to hear legal actions against the PM's suspension of Parliament is a whole new outrage ... There is no law, no precedent. Within our constitution, Prime Ministers can do this sort of thing and often it will be right and necessary. You might as well get the Supreme Court to rule on whether the red wines of Burgundy are better than those of Bordeaux ... their opinion, at the end, would be worth nothing. And so we see from the 'evidence' presented at this gathering of learned kangaroos. It's all opinions ... opinions are not laws, and they are not facts. Ten thousand brilliant legal brains could not read Mr Johnson's mind or prove that he misled the Queen, and Her Majesty is certainly not going to give them any evidence on that score..."
Don't Let the Law Become An Enemy of the People (17 September 2019)
"The British constitution is coming under strain. A few Remainers are using law, rather than politics, to further their objectives. But the law cannot retain its authority if it becomes partisan. This week's Supreme Court hearing of the legal challenge to the prorogation of parliament provides the UK's most senior judges with an opportunity to demonstrate that they have not become the plaything of anti-Brexit campaigners. Only a resolute judgement that re-establishes the boundary between law and politics can silence the voices that are calling law an 'enemy of the people'..."

We ask another 'expert' ... In truth each one is just another opinion and interpretation.

Perhaps Scottish judges must be clairvoyant" / "Why no analysis of the thinking behind the Scottish ruling? The justiciary now drop and reschedule everything in a day to day response to politics. They are such a part of the political process that we now routinely wait for them in order to progress to the next stage. Which will nowadays be yet another court case. It is filibuster by law"
The Judges Should Not Join MPs as Brexit Back-Seat Drivers (15 September 2019)
"Lord Burnett, Lord Chief Justice, and two other senior English judges gave the High Court judgment. They decided that whether to prorogue parliament, and for how long to prorogue it until the next Parliamentary session, are so inherently political in nature that there are no judicial or legal standards by which the courts are able to assess the legitimacy of the action taken ... The Scottish judges were much more willing to wade into making an assessment of the political factors at work in the decision to prorogue ... For judges to devise out of thin air a list of good and bad political reasons, and to decide that one reason should outweigh another, is to step outside the judicial role and enter inevitably into the realm of politics..."

The decision by the High Court follows another decision against anti-Brexit complainants in Scotland this week, which sought but failed to achieve the same result. In normal times, Parliament would be Prorogued frequently - as often as once a year - but as Parliament has stalled on its attempts to block Brexit, the session has ground on ... the parliamentary session Miller attempted to take the government to court over terminating is now the longest in modern history, the last longest having taken placer around the English civil war..."
The Court Case
Be Honest, Sir John: This Case Is About Revenge (22 September 2019) (£)
"Last week's hearing at the Supreme Court of Gina Miller's case to reverse Boris Johnson's proroguing of parliament has nothing to do with Brexit. Perish the thought. But lest anyone had been under such an absurd misapprehension, the president of the court, Baroness Hale, concluded the hearing with these words: 'I must repeat that this case is not about when and on what terms the UK eaves the EU ... We are solely concerned with the lawfulness of the PM's decision to advise her Majesty to prorogue parliament.' How odd, then, that the hearing had been listed on the Supreme Court's own website under 'Brexit-related judicial review cases'. When this was pointed out, the page on the court's website was rapidly altered to conform retrospectively to Lady Hale's obiter dictum: the hearing was suddenly no longer a 'Brexit-related judicial review case' but a 'Prorogation-related judicial review case.' ...
"Lady Hale ... covers the 'what' but not the 'why' [of the court case]. And the reason why the astonishingly determined businesswoman Gina Miller brought the case is to stop Brexit. The same was true of her earlier case at the Supreme Court, which forced the government to allow parliament a vote on the triggering of article 50 ... On both occasions Miller insisted her motives were purely to ensure the appropriate democratic procedures ware honoured. She must think that none of us can recall her October 2016 interview with The Times, in which she described how she was 'physically sick' when the referendum result was declared. She also recalled her then 11-year-old son saying to her that morning: 'But you're going to do something, Mummy, you always do.' Ms Miller's reply to her son was: 'I'm not promising anything, but I will talk to some lawyers.' Did she ever. And this domestic exchange shows that from the very moment of the referendum result, by her own account. Miller has tried to find all legal means to prevent it from being enacted ... this courtly process is just part of the effort by the well-financed losers to frustrate or even cancel the result of the biggest plebiscite in the country's history..."
Firstly, Boris Johnson's motive for proroguing parliament was being second-guessed by the appellants Gina Miller and John Major, as well as by all eleven judges of the Supreme Court. None of these protagonists is a mind-reader, and none of them was privy to the meeting between Boris Johnson and the Queen, so they know no more than anyone else what was the conversation held between the PM and the Queen. Further in this regard, as it would seem from the article above, no reasons are given by the PM to the Queen anyway when parliament is prorogued: "the PM doesn't give the monarch 'reasons', disingenuous or otherwise, for requesting a prorogation. he simply tells her his advice is that parliament be prorouged, and she gives her consent. It's not, and in the modern era never has been, a discussion with two possible outcomes. Just as it wasn't when Major advised the Queen to prorogue parliament in 1997. So he wouldn't have had to reassure her that was merely coincidental that the timing of that prorogation prevented parliament from debating the imminent report on the Tory cash-for-questions scandal before the ensuing general election."
Secondly, Gina Miller's motive for bringing both her court cases was very obviously not what she later claimed it to be, as can reasonably be deduced from her conversation with her son in the above - as related by her. Likewise, John Major's motive for proroguing parliament in 1997 was very obviously not what it appeared. The stench of hypocrisy and projection coming from these two sanctimonious quislings is foul beyond description.
Open Letter to the Supreme Court Judges (19 September 2019)
"The Court is being asked a question which assumes Queen Elizabeth II is a fool and has allowed herself to be conned by her Prime Minister ... You are being asked to believe that Queen Elizabeth II does not know her subjects voted with a large margin to leave the EU and that Parliament has spent 3 years trying by foul means to thwart our leaving and returning her Kingdom back to her exclusive rule. The proroguing of Parliament is a Royal Prerogative and her Majesty has exercised that prerogative power fully in support of her subjects' vote ... For any of her subjects from the lowest as in Gina Miller to the highest in Parliament or the Courts to challenge the absolute legal right of Queen Elizabeth II to prorogue Parliament ... means that Gina Miller, politicians or Judges ... are placing their will above her Majesty's will, and that constitutes high treason..."
The Prorogation Case in the Supreme Court (19 September 2019)
"The point in issue is initially an arcane one: is the prime minister's advice to the monarch to prorogue parliament an act of the executive, in which case the courts can review it, as they review any act of the government to determine if it is lawful, or is it a political act that forms part of the proceedings of parliament and which the courts are forbidden from pronouncing upon by the Bill of Rights of 1689. If the court decides that it is an act of the executive, it must then consider a second more controversial question: whether Boris Johnson acted through 'improper motivation' in advising the Queen to prorogue this parliament for five weeks..."
Gina Miller and the Destruction of Democratic Equality (18 September 2019)
"We need to be clear about what the current Supreme Court case is attempting to do. It is not a defence of parliamentary sovereignty against the PM's apparently authoritarian act of prorogation. No, it is about reopening parliament so that MPs, who are predominantly pro-Remain, can continue frustrating Brexit. Ms. Miller and other elitist Remainers know that parliamentarians are their best bet for ending Brexit ... Miller and others want to reopen parliament not out of any love for parliamentary democracy but in the hope that parliamentarians will be successful in their anti-Brexit, anti-democratic endeavours..."
A Dangerous Moment for Democracy (17 September 2019)
"[P]rogressives are putting their faith in the law rather than in elections to remove the sitting incumbent. And this is a dangerous moment for democracy. Not that our political leaders should be above the law. But the way this clash is inevitable going to be cast is that it is the law versus democracy. Or, more darkly, that the rule of law is really the rule of lawyers - and the wealthy activists that have access to them ... that the law exists for the wealthy in a way that it does not for the poor..."
A Sovereign People Delegate To A Sovereign Parliament (31 August 2019)
"The Brexit vote was based around the proposition that we the people need to take back control from Brussels of our laws, our borders and our money. Brexit voters wish to recreate a strong UK parliament, answerable to voters, with sovereign powers ... The Remain MPs just do not understand this central idea of people's sovereignty ... Now they are seeking to thwart popular sovereignty by appealing to our law courts ... The Gina Miller judgement created a costly delay in our departure from the EU - around £7bn of extra EU net budget contribution for starters. It required Parliament to legislate a decision it had already taken, the decision to send the Article 50 letter ... The legal challenge weakened Parliament by placing the Courts above Parliament in an important matter of political judgement. It is to be hoped that the courts this coming week understand it is not their role to tell parliament when to meet or what to debate..."
Lord Sumption on Boris Johnson's Prorogation of Parliament: The Legal Case For (29 August 2019) (£)
"Lord Sumption, who is also a respected historian, said that while it may be unconventional to prorogue parliament as the Brexit deadline looms, doing so is entirely legal ... Is what [Boris Johnson] has announced the subject of legal rules or of historical convention? The only objection is that the decision has been taken for questionable political motives. But that is not something the courts should rule on ... 'Judicial review is concerned with acts of public bodies that are said to be unlawful. Conventions are different. They are rules but not legal rules and breach of them is not necessarily contrary to law'..."
Gina Miller vs The People - Again (15 July 2019)
"[Gina Miller] is the filthy-rich businesswoman who said the 2016 vote for Brexit made her feel 'physically sick' and who has devoted a massive amount of moral and financial energy to trying to thwart, block or dilute that vote. And all the while she has been effusively cheered by those entitled sections of society who cannot comprehend why 'low information' plebs - that's you and me - were entrusted with the decision about the EU in the first place. Ms Miller's latest anti-democratic ruse is to threaten to take the government to court if it even thinks about strongarming parliament into accepting a No Deal Brexit ... The arrogance is astounding. Where does such a colossal sense of entitlement come from? Imagine being just one person and yet presuming the right to prevent a PM who represents a mass political party from acting on the will of millions of people. Such conceit, such political hubris, will be alien to the vast majority of us who understand that democracy is about debate and argument in the public sphere, not money-lubed court cases designed to tie the hands of government. There is a deep irony here:..."

"But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is a hireling, and careth not for the sheep" (John 10:12-13).
A Rebellious Generation (06 September 2019)
"We should not be surprised at the scenes of chaos in Parliament ... A rebellious Parliament is a reflection of a rebellious nation. The chaotic scenes are simply a reflection of a nation in chaos. We have rejected the venerated heritage of our fathers and what we are seeing is the result of own folly ... For 50 years this nation has been steadily eroding its biblical foundation that made it a great nation and what we now see in our dysfunctional, rebellious Parliament is the result ... When everything goes wrong in the nation, the biblical principle is not to blame the politicians but to blame the religious leaders ... Today we have a group of 25 Church of England bishops publishing a statement about Brexit that is full of political correctness but has no Gospel in it. It has no prophetic call to the nation to turn to God. In fact, there is no mention of God! No call to prayer, no call to 'repentance', no recognition of our departure from the word of the Lord which is why the nation is in such trouble! The bishops reflect the same secular humanist, globalist spirit as the rest of the establishment who are defying the referendum and trying to keep Britain locked into the EU. If church leaders would only bother to read the Bible - the whole Bible, not just little bits of the New Testament - they would understand the nature of the spiritual battle that is raging across Britain and much of Europe today..."
"Setting aside the fact that so many Diocesan Bishops have not in recent decades (/centuries?) issued an open letter on the moral degradation of the nation or the urgent need for repentance on salvation (which is perhaps not so pressing a matter for them as EU membership appears to be ... ), this open letter on Brexit is, at first reading, a perfectly reasonable appeal, prioritising, of necessity, and as Jesus exhorted, the potential consequences of a 'no deal' Brexit (that is, a clean, global Brexit on WTO terms) on the poor and disenfranchised. The Bishops exhort peace and reconciliation, which is what all Christians want. However:..."
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!" (Isaiah 5:20-21).
"Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed" (Isaiah 10:1-3).
"Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand" (Micah 2:1-2).
"Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool than of him" (Proverbs 26:12).
"'It's an absurd contradiction ... parliamentary sovereignty only makes sense within the notion of the sovereign, independent state - otherwise it's meaningless verbiage ... [W]hat's happened with the referendum is [it is] the first time that Parliament has consciously and deliberately - and led by its Speaker and by its leading MPs - consciously reversed the notion of representation ... And it seems to me to be an act of unprecedented folly...' "
YOUTUBE: Bercow Won't Allow 'Illegal' No Deal Brexit (13 September 2019)
"In another show of what being impartial means to him, the Speaker ... has [said] that he is prepared to rip up the parliamentary rule book ... Bercow must have forgotten about the EU Withdrawal Act 2018, that was passed by that very parliament he sits in, that says we leave deal or no deal on the 31st October ... when it comes to the law today, it is there for Remainers to ignore, break and bend, while Brexiteers must obey it..."
Your Daily Brexit Betrayal (13 September 2019)
"At the end of this extraordinary week which started with the Prorogation on Monday when the Remain MPs and the Speaker collectively lost their countenance, the Brexit Madness hasn't abated one bit. It's no longer only about Brexit though. There's the visceral hatred for Johnson by the Remain Harlots being displayed in the MSM and there's the shifting of goalposts: ... But don't despair! The outlook might be grim after all that has happened this week, but the darkest hour always comes before dawn..."
PETITION: Stop Harriet Harman From Becoming Speaker (11 September 2019)
"Addressed to: The House of Commons. Harriet Harman is due to run for the role of Speaker in the House of Commons. Before becoming a Labour MP, Harman ran a 'human rights' group called 'Liberty', which was openly affiliated with PIE (Paedophile Information Exchange), a group that campaigned to legalise the rape of children, even babies, arguing that 'love' knows no age boundaries. It should not be forgotten that the Labour party also sat idly by whilst young girls were systematically groomed and raped all over England during the last three decades. The last thing that this country needs is a paedophile-enabling Speaker of the House. We, the undersigned, call on you to reject Harriet Harman as a potential successor to John Bercow as the Speaker of the House of Commons."
Your Daily Brexit Betrayal (11 September 2019)
"It's lovely to enjoy the respite from the inanities and kindergarten behaviour of the MPs, especially the opposition MPs, thanks to Prorogation! Just look at these articles ... if you need proof that opposition MPs have descended to activist, street theatre level. They've underlined yet again that they are not worthy to sit in the HoC ... It's not so lovely to note yet again that the unholy alliance of Remain MPs and Remain MSM have been telling porkies when they bewail Prorogation ... The Brexit Betrayal War is relentless..."
Your Daily Brexit Betrayal (10 September 2019)
"Despicable poltroons! That describes the craven MPs and their leaders who used yesterday's last session in this parliament to abuse Johnson unhindered by the Speaker - and still did not vote for a GE. They are a bunch of conceited, overweening, pompous, smug and vainglorious people, many promoted well above their mental capabilities ... While we have a welcome breathing space from watching the unspeakable Remain Harlots in the HoC, you can bank on this: they will waltz from TV show to TV show. They will spew forth their hatred for Johnson particularly and for Tories generally. They will try and explain to us why we must stay in the EU, in the hope that, should a GE take place, we will all have forgotten their incessant betrayal of us Leave voters..."
The Silencing of the People (10 September 2019)
"Last night, the HofC put on one of the most nauseating displays in its history. From the self-congratulation of the obsessively anti-Brexit, anti-democratic Speaker John Bercow to the last-minute pushing through of an archaic Humble Address motion to force government advisors to hand over their private WhatsApp messages, this was parliament at its worst. At its most aloof, its most decadent, and its most illiberal. But perhaps the most grotesque sight of all, the sight that confirmed that this parliament is truly and irreparably exhausted, was Remainer MPs holding up signs declaring that they have been 'silenced' by Boris Johnson's prorogation. This takes gall and arrogance to dizzying new heights ... Just a couple of hours before this ridiculous orgy of self-pity these same MPs had actually, legally silenced us, the people, by once again voting against the holding of a General Election. They pose as victims of 'silencing' when in truth they are the silencers. They are silencing the public voice, the very source of their democratic authority ... They have to go. They have no idea how much contempt the public feels for them. Or perhaps they do..."
Activist Speaker Bercow To Resign (09 September 2019)
"John Bercow, the speaker of the HofC who has gained some level of notoriety during the course of the Brexit debate has announced he will resign his position before the end of next month, as British PM Boris Johnson puts himself on a collision course with the nation's predominantly anti-Brexit Parliament, as he prepared to end the longest Parliamentary session in modern history [on] Monday. The announcement of speaker Bercow, a remain voter widely perceived in Westminster as having acted as an activist speaker to influence the course of the Brexit debate in parliament, perhaps against the traditions of neutrality associated with the office, came after the PM Boris Johnson announced he would be suspending Parliament tonight..."
How and Why Only We the People Can Block the Anti-Brexit Barbarians (08 September 2019)
"What we have seen this last week from Remain is a stage by stage poisoning of democracy. Focus on this, and don't be distracted by the alleged 'reasons' Parliament is presenting for murder by stealth. Future Governance cannot be conducted by a vainglorious Speaker and a triumphalist (but mediocre) Parliament. That is unconstitutional, and represents the second attempted coup in a year... the previous one having been launched in Whitehall in concert with a globalist PM utterly lacking in emotional intelligence ... Ten days ago, it was an attack on 'No-Deal-catastrophic-crash-out-life-threatening-coup-by-Johnson' Brexit. Then it became 'Demanding-an-extension-to-October -31st-Brexit'... whether we have a deal or not. Now it's Demanding-no-election-before-we-have-a-Deal'... with or without Brexit. By November it will be 'Demanding-a-revocation-of-Article-50'. Then it will be 'No Brexit'..."
The Remainer Tyranny (08 September 2019)
"Yes, we have now reached the 'keep us in the EU or we will send you to jail' stage of the Remainer tyranny. This furious, anti-democratic wing of the elite, who make up the majority of the contemporary establishment, has been drifting towards extreme authoritarianism for two years now. They openly discuss overriding the largest democratic vote in British history. They condemn newspapers that use strong language to describe Remainer extremism. They make deals with the EU above the heads of the PM, the Cabinet and the people to ensure that we stay in the EU for longer than planned. And now they warn the PM that if he doesn't follow a new law insisting on an extension of the Article 50 process - and of the UK's membership of the EU - then he will go to jail ... Think about what is happening here; think about the seriousness of it ... You want to see a coup? You want to see dictatorial instincts at play? Look no further than this unprecedented trashing of political convention and democratic sentiment by that section of the political class that is so consumed by contempt for the people and the vote we made in 2016 that they have now taken to threatening jail against a PM that does not do what they want. These people are out of control..."
"What Will We Do Without Amber Rudd?" Said No One, Ever... (08 September 2019)
"If you believe the usual parti-pris suspects - the BBC, Sky News, The Guardian, The Times, etc - then last night's 'stunning' announcement by Rudd that she is quitting her cabinet job represents a major blow to Boris Johnson. No it doesn't. Boris Johnson only appointed Rudd as Pensions Minister as an act of magnanimity: ... [and] an olive branch to the Remainer faction in the Conservatives - to demonstrate that there was still room for them in the party so long as they agreed to stop undermining Brexit. So if anyone emerges badly from this scenario it's not Boris but slippery traitor Rudd. He gave her a chance; she threw it back in his face ... Outside the Westminster bubble, Boris's mix of cheery optimism, generosity of spirit, and utter ruthlessness, is playing very well with a country which has had just about enough of parliament's Remainer shenanigans..."
Boris Was Right To Withdraw the Whip From the Rebels (06 September 2019)
"For three years a particular group of rebel Tory MPs have defied their government to turn their backs on the UK and side with the enemy ... Well, no more ... Those 20-odd MPs ... were finally given their marching orders by a man who, while rambling and rambunctious, stuck to his word when he threatened they would defy their country no more ... parliament has been allowed to run absolutely rampant in its open defiance of democracy and the interests of the nation ... Theresa May and the 20+ traitorous MPs bear a striking resemblance to William Joyce, better known as Lord Haw-Haw. For those too young or lacking of historical knowledge of the World Wars, Joyce was a British fascist politician who broadcast Nazi propaganda during the war ... [and] advocated the domination of a Europe led by the Reich. The Tory cabal (along with most of the other side of the house) has done exactly that for three years ... It wasn't so long ago that we rightly hanged people for actively subverting their nation in favour of a foreign power..."
More Chaos in Parliament (05 September 2019)
"I suspect that Mr Johnson and his team are very aware of the growing disgust in the country as a whole at the shenanigans in Westminster and especially the way that the Remainers have consistently tossed aside democracy ... Britain's politics and political system, which has worked reasonably well, although with a few hiccups, since the Great Reform Act of 1832, is now a complete and utter mess ... We are now in the disgusting and worrying period where we have a Parliament versus the People situation..."
"So, those who 'know best' have again done their worst. While constantly claiming to be the guardians of democracy and the constitution - and respecters of the 2016 referendum result - diehard Remainers (who have never brought themselves to believe that their advice could have been rejected) have striven night and day to prevent Brexit - whether with a deal or not - from happening..."
Britain's Parliament of Traitors (04 September 2019)
"I try not to use the word 'traitors' too readily. This is because words have power and 'traitor' is a strong word that should really only be used when it is absolutely necessary to describe an individual or a group that is actively working to undermine the sovereignty of the UK or who actively attempts to overthrow the Monarch. It also is a word that should properly be used to describe those who collaborate with Britain's enemies or opponents, as it was used to prosecute and convict the pro-Nazi propagandist William Joyce in the late 1940s. However, I'm finding it difficult to find any word other than 'traitors' to describe those MPs, on both sides of the HofC, who voted to take control of the House from the Government in their efforts to annul the Referendum vote on leaving the EU that was held in 2016. These MPs have actively sided with a foreign power..."
It's Not Jacob Rees-Mogg Who Is Disrespecting Democracy (04 September 2019)
"Jacob Rees-Mogg was chided by MPs ... last night for lounging in the HofC during a critical Brexit debate. Green MP Caroline Lucas called Mogg's posture 'contemptuous' and 'the physical embodiment of arrogance'. Mogg's horizontal posture 'demeans the Commons', said Labour's Lord Falconer. For Labour MP Toby Perkins, it showed that Mogg felt he was 'born to rule and far too important to listen to anyone else's view'. Labour MP Karl Turner tweeted: 'I've never felt a sense of entitlement. This is what that looks like?'. But the opposition MPs doth protest too much. After all, following the debate, they voted to wrest control of parliament from the government in an attempt to outlaw a No Deal Brexit - which, in effect, means outlawing Brexit full stop. These MPs might not be as posh as Mogg and might not have gone to Eton, but they are the arrogant and entitled ones here. They think nothing of riding roughshod over the largest democratic mandate in UK history. The new elite, embodied by the schoolmarmish Caroline Lucas and centrist Labourites, are united in their contempt for Brexit and, by extension, democracy itself. And that is far more shocking than a horizontal Jacob Rees-Mogg."
...Remainers Will Soon Be Out Of A Job (04 September 2019)
"To those of my fellow Brexiteers running around like headless chickens today clucking that 'the sky is falling! The sky is falling!' I have one simple question: 'What did you think was going to happen?' Did you think John Bercow was going to acquire a conscience, squash his inner malign, attention-seeking dwarf and suddenly realise: 'Wait! I'm the Speaker of the House. My job is supposed to be impartial!'? Did you think the Tory Remainer rebels were belatedly going to appreciate that being a Conservative generally doesn't entail selling your country down the river to a corrupt, sclerotic, declining, socialistic superstate, allowing its weird foreign judges to make your laws and accepting whatever other Carthaginian terms your enemy wants to impose on you? Did you think a Remain dominated parliament - puffed up with inflated notions of its sovereignty ... so out of touch with the people it serves ... terrified of a general election ... was just going to roll over and let Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg walk all over them ... Anyone who actually thinks this clearly hasn't been paying attention this last three years..."
Today Was A Very Dark Day For British Democracy (03 September 2019)
"Don't believe for one minute the self-aggrandising claims of the Remainer establishment and its noisy cheerleaders in the media. Tonight's vote by MPs to seize control of the parliamentary agenda in order to prevent a No Deal Brexit is ... an assertion of the political elite's arrogant authority over the people. If MPs have seized power from anyone this evening, it is from us, the public, the millions who voted to leave the EU. This is not parliament vs the executive - this is parliament vs the people, and it opens up one of the greatest, most troublesome constitutional crises of modern times ... Probably their most perverse and insulting claim is that they are standing up for parliamentary sovereignty..."
"Absolutist. Totalitarian. Dictatorial. Fascist. Do those flinging these words about know what they mean? Are they careless of how they demean those who really suffered these horrors? ... This verbal incontinence is contemptible, and also rather comical. It is a sickness of our present political culture, but in Marx's phrase, an infantile disorder. Infantile tantrums of those with identikit opinions who want their own way ... Senile tantrums of the ageing League of EU loyalists, apoplectic as their old certainties dissolve ... This is the first time since the advent of full democracy after the First World War that a significant part of the Establishment (the political class, the media, the intelligentsia) has deliberately tried to to resist a legal democratic vote ... it has never been legitimate for parliament to overrule the popular will, certainly not when expressed legally and solemnly, as in 2016..."
If Only Remainers Were Honest (30 August 2019)
"Our papers and TV screens are filled to the gunwales with tripartite remainers riling against a no-deal Brexit and promising to stop it by hook or by crook (mostly the latter). This is an emetic lie. It's not no-deal Brexit but Brexit that they want to stop. And they think, perhaps correctly, that they can pull the wool over people's eyes ... What is indeed taking place is a group of parliamentary saboteurs trying to derail democracy in the name of democracy - while accusing their opponents of doing just that. They are like a thief who runs away from a pursuing crowd and screams 'Stop thief!' louder than anyone else..."
"The UK will not face fresh national elections in the short term after Parliament voted against submitting itself to the approval or otherwise of the British people for the second time, as the PM insisted he would not permit another Brexit extension and the longest Parliament in modern history was finally suspended ... Parliament will now not sit until mid-October..."
Who Wants An Election? (06 September 2019)
"It was curious to see how practically no Opposition MPs wanted a General election when offered the opportunity non Wednesday night..."
Boris Johnson: With A Bound Set Free (04 September 2019)
"Yesterday evening, Boris Johnson lost even the shadow of a majority. He may stagger through the next few days till the prorogation takes effect ... But the prorogation offers only temporary relief. It will end. He will then have no majority to pass any deal he makes with the European Commission, and no majority for making any laws to deal with the effects of a No-Deal Brexit. Until 2011, the obvious answer would have been a dissolution ... The problem is the Fixed Term Parliament Act 2011 ... The consensus is that the Government is trapped in an iron vice that will now be tightened till it cracks. The truth, however, is that this vice is less of iron than of hot air. The Civil Contingencies Act 2004 is a constitutional outrage. It allows a government to declare an emergency, and then to rule by decree. It should never have been made. But it was made; and it can now be used as an instrument of liberation..."
Would Turkeys Vote For Christmas? (04 September 2019)
"Perhaps the greatest impediment to a fresh election now is Labour's Jeremy Corbyn. This is ironic because despite him having challenged the government to hold an election nearly day for two years and has recently goaded new PM Boris Johnson for not having been directly elected by the people himself, now the opportunity is being put in front of him the opposition leader is running from it ... A vote would put [MPs] own jobs on the line as a deeply unrepresentative and increasingly unpopular Parliament went back to the people to be confirmed or replaced at the ballot box. Hypocrite MPs claiming to defend democracy by sabotaging Brexit ... are the proverbial turkeys not voting for Christmas..."
Why Remoaners Are So Terrified Of A General Election (04 September 2019)
"The ridiculousness of the 'Stop the Coup' movement is now starkly exposed. For the past week a few thousand members of the obsessively anti-Brexit urban elites have taken to the streets to accuse Boris Johnson of behaving like a dictator by suspending parliament for a few more days than is normal. 'It's a coup d'état!', they hysterically cry. And yet now our supposed dictator, the author of this foul, anti-democratic coup, is offering people a General Election, and how have the 'Stop the Coup' saps responded? By saying they don't want one. What a momentous self-own ... if anyone is agitated and even disgusted by the idea of democracy right now, it isn't the imaginary jackbooted generals of Downing Street - it's the pseudo-democratic Remainer elite..."
A General Election? (03 September 2019)
"Politics is only likely to return to some sense once this so far hopeless Parliament has fulfilled its main task, to get us out of the EU, as promised by both Labour and Conservatives in the last election. Our problem is not too few elections. Our problem is the inability so far of this Parliament to implement the decision of the Referendum. Until that is done there will be anger about those MPs who have failed to vote and speak on Brexit as promised in the last election, and an inability to move on to discuss how an independent UK will use its new freedoms. Those MPs have to decide today and tomorrow if they will after all uphold the view of the voters in the referendum..."
YOUTUBE: Is This the Way Round the Brexit 'Surrender Act'? (12 September 2019)
"The PM Boris Johnson keeps assuring us that the UK will leave the EU - deal or no deal - on the 31st October. But doesn't that remainer-driven Surrender Act stop a no deal Brexit? ... We have an Act of Parliament in the form of the Withdrawal Act (2018) that is now in force that says it is the will of Parliament to leave the EU on 31st October, full stop. And we now have another Act of Parliament in the form of the Surrender Act that says it is the will of Parliament to change that exit date to another unspecified date in the future, if the EU offers it. But the Surrender Act instructs Boris to write the letter to ask for an extension and agree to it before the date in the Withdrawal Act (2018) itself is amended, so he would be breaking UK law by doing so..."
Boris Johnson and An Issue of Trust (10 September 2019)
Mr Johnson gave his word during his election campaign that he would take the UK out of the EU on Halloween. His words were, 'Do or die', 'Come what may'. So what are his options? Here we urge prayer for him to keep his word and refuse to send the letter drafted for him. We'll argue he should dare the Remainers to take action against him. Mr Johnson may not be washed in the blood of the Lamb. Nevertheless, he is doing the will of the Lord in taking the UK out of the EU's Revived Roman Empire. If that is the case, he may say: 'The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?' What indeed can they do? We shall explore their options - and his - below..."
Johnson "Sticking To His Guns" On Brexit Plans, Says Foreign Secretary (08 September 2019)
"...despite the efforts of Jeremy Corbyn's 'surrender bill' to stop no deal Brexit, the UK will leave the EU on October 31st, 'come what may'. The Remainer-dominated HofC voted to back a bill that would stop the UK leaving the EU without a deal and force the government to seek another extension of Article 50, delaying Brexit Day for another three months to January 31srt, 2020 ... [a] source said the PM's inner team is preparing to 'take a chainsaw to anything' that threatens fulfilling the will of the people. The PM holding firm appears to be winning favour with the public..."
"On Friday, the HofL approved the bill aimed to make leaving the EU without a deal illegal and force the Conservative government to ask the EU for another extension to Article 50 ... if Parliament does not agree a deal with Brussels by October 19th ... MP Iain Duncan Smith said of the bill and Labour's refusal to back a snap election: 'This is about parliament versus the people. Boris Johnson is on the side of the people, who voted to leave the EU. The people are sovereign because they elect Parliament. But Parliament wants to stop the will of the people, and that is the side that labour is on'..."
This Rogue Surrender Act Must Be Thrown Out (07 September 2019)
"The European Union (Withdrawal) (No 6) Act should be studied by everyone in the country. It is short but one clause is weirdly abstruse. It can hardly be described as anything but the product of a rogue parliament passing the executive of HMG to a foreign power to decide the future of the UK as an independent sovereign democracy ... Speaker Bercow is of course the hinge of this extraordinary mafia-like heist, breaking trust with his historic role of the strictest neutrality ... It certainly deserves the title of 'Surrender Act', but it is worse than that:..."
Brexit Blockage Proves Global Elite Will Fight Tooth and Nail (06 September 2019)
"Beneficiaries if the political status quo of the UK's membership in the EU will not yield to popular support for Brexit without a fight, said Henry Olsen, Washington Post columnist ... Olsen linked institutional obstruction of Brexit with a broader global phenomenon of entrenched political figures resisting popular demands from the public. 'If you want significant change in the system you have to stick at it,' Olsen declared. 'This is happening all around the world.

"Brexit madness has gripped Parliament and the Westminster MSM. Yesterday's session in the House of Clowns (apologies to real clowns everywhere!) provided ample proof ... They showed us their policies are Alice-in-Wonderland policies and that they have the right to ride roughshod over the will of the rest of us, the people. Yesterday's HoC performance had four acts ... it showed once and for all the undisguised hatred of the Westminster Establishment for Brexit and Brexiteers. All their pious words notwithstanding, they want to stop Brexit..."
A Useless Parliament (05 September 2019)
"The Bill went through with just a handful of amendments rushed to the chamber at the last minute, with no proper time for consideration or for external advice. The Bill now goes onto the Lords where the proposers wish to limit debate, limit the number of amendments and rush it through again without full consideration of its many important implications for our democracy, our economy and our society. The Remain side claims anything the government does is undemocratic, yet pushes and shoves our constitution in ways designed to curtail debate and thwart the wishes of the majority in the referendum ... A Remain Parliament wishes to disagree with the referendum majority and deny voters the opportunity to do anything about it..."
The Traitors' Smug Victory Grins! (04 September 2019)
"Their smug grins of delight as Boris gets heckled by the House of Collaborators Remainer MPs tells us all you need to know. It's now blindingly obvious that May never intended to take us out of the EU. She always wanted to keep us shackled to Brussels. She circumvented no fewer than two Leave Secretaries - forcing both to resign in protest - in order to stitch us up and keep us under EU control. And now we can see her delight as the house of Crooks takes away any negotiating power Boris Johnson might have had..."
Reader's comment: My father was virtually a stranger to me until I was eight years old because he was doing his bit to protect England from Nazism. And the years of post-war austerity after he was able to rejoin the family weren't a whole lot of fun either. TV unheard of, sweets still rationed, no car of course, certainly no holidays away from home ... Do-gooders who scream now about childhood poverty and kids going to school hungry, while their parents go about with a smart phone on one hand and a fag in the other while gigantic plasma TVs with Sky and Netflix subscriptions dominate the living room, have no idea of how things once were. All those years when my mother, my sister, and I were deprived of my father's presence, all those daylight hours and cold nights spent in pitch-dark air-raid shelters, all those millions of other UK families who similarly endured, all those men who never returned to their families; all gone to waste in order to roll over seventy five years later to the Fourth Reich. I am livid. So, I know, are all my friends and neighbours ... The nation voted for Brexit. We knew what we wanted. We knew the implications. We were neither naïve nor ignorant. We expected our Government to deliver. It has failed us deplorably. Parliament is without honour. MPs will pay heavily for this at the next election (And yes, I too observed Treason May's smug smirk yesterday.) ... cannot any of the them see that by giving in to EU intransigence we have lain our nation open to its contempt for ever more? Bullies don't admire those they have defeated, they despise them"
Brexit Delay Bill Passes in Commons, Johnson Tables Motion for Election (04 September 2019)
"Britain's HofC has approved an attempt by lawmakers to stop the country leaving the EU in October without a divorce deal, sending it to Parliament's unelected upper chamber for debate. The HofC voted 327-299 to approve a bill that would force PM Boris Johnson to seek a further delay to Brexit rather than leave the EU without an agreement on the scheduled departure date of Oct 31. Lawmakers hope to have it passed into law by the end of the week. But pro-Brexit members of the HofL are threatening to try to stop it by filibustering - talking so much [that] time runs out. Johnson says Britain must leave the EU on Oct 31, with or without a deal, and plans to seek a snap election if the opposition bill becomes law."
How Do You Want the Government To Proceed? (04 September 2019)
"Today the Commons will seek to drive a dangerous Bill through all its stages in one short sitting. Its purpose will be to deliver the UK into the power and control of the EU. The PM will be required to ask for an extension of our membership,. and to accept any terms the EU wishes to dictate ... This teems with irony. The MPs who have done this claim to be the true democrats and the defenders of the constitution. Instead they warp the constitution to seek to pass a Bill which would bind the UK into EU servitude against the express wishes of the electors in the referendum and in the 2017 General election..."
"This post seeks to explore one of the major difficulties facing the new Bill, focusing on a long-standing procedure in both Houses called 'Queen's Consent'. Queen's Consent must be sharply distinguished from Royal Assent. Unlike Queen's Consent, Royal Assent is required for every Bill before it can become law, and is secured right at the end of the legislative process, after a Bill has passed both Houses ... Queen's Consent is a procedural requirement for any Bill passing through the Commons and Lords where the terms of the Bill would 'affect' the exercise of any royal prerogative if it was passed..."

UK Parliament Will Be Suspended Tonight (09 September 2019)
"PM Boris Johnson announced he would be suspending Parliament tonight. The suspension of Parliament ... Prorogation, has been a controversial move amongst anti-Brexit campaigners who believe the move has been engineered to minimise their ability to prevent Britain leaving the EU at the end of October. The constitutional mechanisms to trigger the suspension were activated in August but left the government with a free hand over when exactly to begin the Prorogation, however it has now been called for tonight..."
A Coup That Isn't A Coup (08 September 2019)
"Coup: A term used by liberals and socialists to denote petulant frustration as at a tactical manoeuvre by an opponent that they cannot stop without resorting to counter-measures which will cost them votes"
"The Left's control on the English language is mightily impressive, even if it is grounded in hysteria of mental illness levels ... In the last 48 hours, the Left have a new inappropriate term to ass the their lexicon: 'coup'. Let's be clear here. Augusto Pinochet staged a coup; Boris Johnson didn't ... Prorogation takes place almost every year. It is an entirely normal and legal constitutional procedure ... A 'coup' is a politico-military tactic designed to prevent opponents from acting against you in all circumstances. How does this prorogation fit into that definition? It was done legally; it was done in accordance with Crown prerogative; and it will still give MPs time to try, once again, to stop Brexit altogether. In the meantime, the British Left resorts to what it always resorts to when it can't get its own way:..."
Those Who Destroyed 28 Parliaments Attack the Prorogation Of One (01 September 2019)
"Seeking as usual to sow hatred and division, the fascist left and the stupid right have called the traditional (usually annual) prorogation of parliament as 'coup d'Etat' and a 'constitutional scandal'. But prorogation merely ushers in a new parliamentary session. The new PM has a program to present and the present session has lasted longer than any other for 400 years. Only three days of parliamentary sittings will be lost ... periods during which Parliament has not sat in previous years: 2016 - 15th Sept to 10th Oct; 2017 - 14th Sept to 9th Oct; 2018 - 13th Sept to 9th Oct. I don't recall any hysteria, outrage or violent language directed at Governments at the time!..."
A Sovereign People Delegate To A Sovereign Parliament (31 August 2019)
"The Brexit vote was based around the proposition that we the people need to take back control from Brussels of our laws, our borders and our money. Brexit voters wish to recreate a strong UK parliament, answerable to voters, with sovereign powers. The MPs keep their jobs for as long as it pleases the voters, who decide at election and by election time if their Parliament is exercising their sovereignty in the way they wish. The Remain MPs just do not understand this central idea of people's sovereignty. They have done all in their power over many years to remove power after power from the UK Parliament and therefore from UK voters by transfers to the EU ... Now they are seeking to thwart popular sovereignty by appealing to our law courts ... It is to be hoped that the courts this coming week understand it is not their role to tell parliament when to meet or what to debate..."
If Only Remainers Were Honest (30 August 2019)
"Besides delivering fiery speeches and comparing Mr Johnson to some of the least savoury historical personages, they've instigated a petition against the prorogation of parliament that has already attracted more than a million signatories, each doubtless a constitutional scholar. All this in the name of democracy of course ... Mr Johnson's decision to put parliament on hold for the subversive annoyance it has become communicates in no uncertain terms that no serious argument on this issue is taking place, nor can ever do so ... the choice before Mr Johnson is stark: no deal or no Brexit. However, parliament has made it clear it wouldn't allow the no-deal option, effectively keeping Britain in the EU against the express will of the people - by which our MPs claim they swear. Hence Mr Johnson has done the only thing he could do within the guidelines of our law and constitution..."
Media Pushing Undemocratic Remain Petition (30 August 2019)

Not that we fully trust Boris nor do we know what type of game he's playing, but the hysterical shrieking of the snowflake left kind of makes up for the national uncertainty.

Rees-Mogg Criticises Remainer Hysteria Over Suspending Parliament (29 August 2019)

"In 2017 the major parties agreed to deliver on the people's vote, but now they seek to thwart it.

Brexit Is Happening. Savour Those Remoaner Tears (28 August 2019)
"Britain is definitely leaving the EU on October 31st. Isn't it odd that this simple fact should arouse such controversy? We voted to leave, after all, by a margin of over 1 million back in June 2016. Yet in the three years since a small, unrepresentative, but asymmetrically powerful group of Remoaner hold-outs - in government, in the Civil Service, in the media, in academe, in the legal profession, in finance, in big business - has thrown so many spanners in the works to try to thwart democracy and to stop Brexit happening ... The Remoaners have got themselves into an awful tizz that they will no longer be able to use the parliamentary process to block Brexit..."

Various remainiacs are going completely ape**** over this despite other governments in the past proroguing Parlaiment for much longer than Mr Johnson is planning to do and this Parliament being one of the longest since the end of the Civil War. The public are being treated to the sight of the delicious irony of many of those who have tried to stop the democratic vote to leave the EU ... denouncing Mr Johnson's plans as being against democracy. We've also been treated to the unedifying sight of the Speaker of the HofC, My John Bercow ... who should be broadly neutral in these matters, spluttering about how suspending Parliament is a 'constitutional outrage'. Personally I think that the greater constitutional outrage is ... Mr Bercow's attempt to thwart a democratic vote by the public when the decision whether or not to leave the EU was granted to the public by Parliament..."

But similar action by the government to do so is immediately labelled 'undemocratic' 'dictatorial' or even 'unconstitutional'?" / "So Conservative and Labour MPs who stood on election platforms in 2017 to respect the referendum vote and deliver Brexit can plot endlessly for three years to break their promises and frustrate the will of the people, and then they accuse the PM of betraying democracy by actually delivering Brexit? What part of Wonderland do these people live in?" / "The outrage of the political establishment when their arrogant stitch-up of politics is exposed and - hopefully - consigned to history is truly wonderful to see" / "The leftists are losing their utopian dreams of dragging the UK into a one world government. We should call the leftists 'the children' now. That is all they behave like!" / "You'll receive our 100% support Boris if you pull this no deal Brexit off"
Comment by Intercessors For Britain (28 August 2019)
"It's not unusual for a new Prime Minister to bring forward a Queen's speech to outline their future legislative programme, which always involves the suspension of Parliament for a period of time. What makes this different is the length of the suspension and the timing. The reason given for the length is the usual recess for party conference season. Most commentators believe the [loss] of parliamentary days is only 4 at the most, however it appears there were efforts to make Parliament sit during the usual conference recess. This means Parliament will sit for around a week, before being suspended until the Queen's Speech on 14 October, which is normally followed by 5 days of debate on the contents of the legislative programme outlined in the speech. The EU will hold a Brexit summit on 17 October. It seems this plan is particularly aimed at stopping Parliament tying the hands of the Government before negotiations with the EU have been completed. While controversial it actually presents the best opportunity for a reasonable Brexit deal to be reached.
"This does make a vote of no confidence in the Government more likely to succeed in the few days of parliamentary time in September, after it seemed opposition leaders failed to agree just the other day. Should a vote of no confidence in the Government be successful, it is unlikely another Government could be formed, and we will end up with a general election almost certainly after 31 October. That should mean leaving on WTO rules, however nothing would surprise me, given the powers that be in the Civil service and their willingness to stand against Brexit. Should a no confidence vote fail or not be brought in time, when Parliament reconvenes, it is likely Boris will put a rehashed but no doubt improved Withdrawal Agreement before Parliament. It will then be a question of how big these changes are as to whether Brexiteers will vote for it, and whether opposition parties will support it to avoid a WTO Brexit. The greater concern right now is the noises being made by opposition MPs calling this a 'coup' and calling for people to come out on the streets. Revolution has been in the air for some time. We now have opposition leaders who would love to see it. We must cry to God for restraint from rioting and violence and for reasonable voices to be heard. ... Please pray."
"We the undersigned fully support the decision for Boris Johnson to ask her Majesty the Queen to prorogue parliament in order to deliver Brexit. 17.4 million people have spoken and the remainers are anti-democracy no matter how much they lie and cheat. Let's make this petition big and not let the media pretend the people are against it! Share with friends, family and everyone on social media. Get this done and get a WTO Brexit delivered and Make Britain Great Again!"

How Dare Remainers Say Boris Is Undemocratic (06 September 2019)

There is Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell denouncing him for acting like a Second World War dictator when Joseph Stalin has long been one of McDonnell's personal heroes. The hard-left Labour movement Momentum has promised to unleash chaos by blocking bridges and motorways. Their aim? To stop 'the chaos' of a No Deal Brexit. We have had Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott denouncing Boris as a Latin American dictator, when she and her boss Jeremy Corbyn never once denounced Fidel Castro, a genuine Latin America dictator ... the supposedly politically neutral Speaker of the HofC, John Bercow, has been speaking of the constitutional 'outrage' of prorogation and that he will fight ii 'with every bone in my body' ...

The BBC's Nazi Series (1): Surprise, Surprise - Hitler Equals Trump Equals Boris (05 September 2019)
"To the uninstructed this might seem to be a bit of educating to go with the alleged entertaining and informing ... To those who know the BBC's ways, the aim of the programme was obvious before it even started: to suggest to viewers that recent political events are similar to the rise of the Nazi Party ... It invited us in no uncertain terms to conclude that the election of a straightfowardly conservative US president and a public vote in Britain to leave the EU were historically equivalent to the election of Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany, which led in due course to the Second World War and the murder of six million Jews ... The writing was poor and clearly aimed at the young and impressionable ... This was history for comprehensive schools ... designed to push the idea, common amongst British Lefties, that if you have conservative attitudes you are a Nazi ... Typically, the BBC selected experts whose views are at one with the corporations blatant Leftist agenda ... The message from the BBC's Rise of the Nazis was that Brexit and Trump are death knells for democracy and anyone not on the Left side of the political spectrum is an extremist ... The BBC is grossly irresponsible in broadcasting a programme like this, which at bottom is pushing juvenile ideas that would not be out of place in fringe meetings of the SWP..."
Jess Phillips Is Far More Elitist Than Boris Johnson (05 September 2019)
"Labour MP Jess Phillips has once again got the liberal elite in a lather with her 'woman of the people' schtick. They fall for it every time ... The latest establishment cheering of Phillips' practised passion came yesterday when she raged against Boris Johnson. In the Commons she branded him a 'bully boy'. Of course she had to sneak in a comment on her own ordinariness - no Jess Phillips speech is complete without copious commentary about Jess Phillips herself ... Phillips said she wanted to speak 'plainly'. Okay, let's speak plainly: Jess Phillips is far more elitist than Boris Johnson. Sure, he removed the whip from 21 Tory MPs - but if Phillips gets her way, the vote will be removed from thousands of her own constituents. Phillips is MP for Birmingham Yardley. Every single ward of Birmingham Yardley voted to leave the EU..."

Our 'Defend Brexit' Case Is Mentioned in Key Commons Debate (07 September 2019)
"On Wednesday the former Conservative leader, Iain Duncan Smith, mentioned our case during the key debate on whether the Commons was going to be able to vote to deny a 'No Deal' Brexit. You can see the context of the debate and his mention of the case on this link: https://youtu.be/DMZaDK2d4xk ... If you watch Speaker Bercow's reactions and expressions and listen carefully to his reply you may feel, as I do, that he is trying to be evasive and deceptive. My guess is that while he had been advised that the Bill required 'Queen's Consent' he had then decided to ignore that advice because it would mean that the Government could refuse to give that 'Consent' and the Bill which he supported would then fail. As Bercow is a prime example of a MP who is trying to use every trick in the book to prevent Brexit, that would come as no surprise..."

After the first Article 50 extension, the chairman of the English Democrats, Robin Tilbrook, lodged a judicial review case with the Administrative Court arguing that the extension was unlawful. And Theresa May's government lodged a defence to protect her decision ... is Boris Johnson pulling that government defence to the case ... This would mean that the government would be accepting that the first Article 50 extension was unlawfully obtained so that agreement to extend Article 50 beyond the 29th March was null and void in domestic and international law. The upshot would be, if this is true, that the the UK left the EU on WTO terms - ie a No Deal Brexit - on 29th March this year. This would, as I understand it, become effective immediately Boris signed the relevant document and it was received by the court..."

"Remoaners in the media are alarmed at Boris Johnson's 'brutal reshuffle'. He is 'rewarding Hard Leavers', they claim. His clearout of no fewer than 17 of Theresa May's 30-strong Cabinet, and his replacement of them with largely pro-Leave and even pro-No Deal ministers, is disturbing and shocking, moans the pro-EU set. Not for the first time they need to get a grip. What is really shocking is that for the past three years Britain was run by Remainers. We often overlook how perverse it was that a nation which voted Leave was so dominated by a Remainer elite ... It is a testament to the anti-Brexit elites' sense of entitlement, to their belief that they were born to rule, that they are so disgusted that pro-Leave people now have the top jobs..."
"Boris's appointments augur extremely well not just for the delivery of Brexit by October 31 but also for Britain's future as a thriving economy and beacon of freedom ...

The following is an extended extract from Battle for the Very Soul of Britain
"Nine hundred and fifty years ago, between two hillocks at Hastings, an Anglo-Saxon king took an arrow in his eye and England surrendered her independence. That was our last - should I say most recent? - defeat on home soil. King Harold's forces fought valiantly but they had been exhausted by two earlier battles ... A shrewd and ruthless Frenchman, Guillaume of Normandy, seized power and London's Witan parliament was never heard of again. ...
"I have been contemplating poor King Harold a fair amount recently. ... As a schoolboy I visited the northern French town of Bayeux to see [the] tapestry and remember a sting of sorrow as I saw the needlework images of vanquished Anglo-Saxons. It was always the same when I read history yarns about British chieftain Caractacus fighting the Romans on his hilltop and later being paraded in Rome as a chained captive; or gallant ... Boadicea, Queen of the Iceni tribe, charging towards the Roman lines in her chariot ... In such accounts, I always rooted for the Brits. ... I always wanted the dwellers of our dank and foggy, sea-set isle to seize the day. Was it a nascent sketchwriter's innate bias or inherited love of country from my fiercely patriotic parents? Was that love wrong? Is that love wrong? I still feel that way.
"The likes of Mr Cameron and his fellow Europhiles ... presumably feel something different when they look at the Bayeux tapestry. I suppose they experience a glow of quiet satisfaction that William and his forces of European integration over came the locals. ... A deep-rooted part of me rebels against that. ... I grieve for the freedoms that were squashed. And I feel just the same when I look at an castle built by English lords to crush dissent in Scottish and Welsh territory. My sympathies lie with the invaded. ...
"Hereward the Wake [a] Lincolnshire freeman ... had his lands taken by the Normans and decided to do something about it. For a few years after 1066, Hereward and his small army operated out of the Cambridgeshire town of Ely, then an island. They were beaten only after a treacherous monk showed the Normans one of the secret paths to Ely through the Fenland marshes. ... Almost a millennium after the event, I feel a lively indignation on Hereward's behalf. What a cur that monk was to betray him. What if Hereward had continued to oppose William? Could he have combined with the still unconquered Celts and Northumbrians to drive out the 'ingengas'? Or was Norman rule as inevitable as supporters of the EU now say their governing body is inevitable? As for that treacherous monk, was he a sort of Roland Rudd of his day ... the City PR smoothie pulling strings for the Remain camp? ...
"My support for Hereward may reflect a surfeit of foolish romanticism. But it may also echo enduring truths about the importance of self-determination and of remaining true to one's ancestral heritage. For what are we if we deny the past? What is the point of being British if we are not able to say who governs us? And let there be no doubt: if we vote to stay ion the EU, we will not be able to dislodge the elite that runs Brussels. They will be impervious to our democratic disapproval. They will be as safe as William and his shaven-headed Normans were in their mighty castle keeps. ...
"The Leave campaign ... has urged voters to quit the EU for a range of reasons ... Hereward the Wake ... would have heard Vote Leave talk of how we must 'take control' and would surely have thought 'I don't really want control - I want liberty.' ...
"It would obviously be good for us to retrieve national control of trade decisions, tax matters, ... immigration policy ... But where is the optimism in Leave's campaign? Where is the appeal to something more positive, more human, more ardent? The hearts of Hereeward the Wake and his 'green men' would have burned for something greater; something more essential. You could call it self-determination or independence but it is basically the right to plant your feet on the clifftops of Kent, raise your eyes to the cloud-scudding sky, and relish your ancient liberty as a free-born Briton. ...
"I think of my grandfathers. One was wounded three times on the Western Front in World War I. The other landed in Normandy - Normandy! - just before D-Day to clear the beaches of mines. They fought for king and country, yes, but they fought most of all for an idea: freedom. The days of ancestral sword and scramasax may have passed but that powerful notion of liberty, the spirit of British dissent which flared so wonderfully in the East Anglian fens 950 years ago, must never be allowed to die. Without it, we would be an island without pride, an island shorn of soul"

[Poem by Rudyard Kipling]
"These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood. And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth" (Genesis 10:32-11:9).
