Today, the Supreme court, in the UK, decided to take a side in a political argument, and decided a case against the legitimately elected government of Boris Johnson, who campaigned on doing the work of the people of Great Britain, and not the Parliament. He was found to have lied to the Queen over advising her about pro-roguing Parliament for a Queen’s Speech, and taking away the longest running Parliament in modern history from continuing the Remain argument to the conclusion of revoking the will of the people, who voted in 2016 to leave the European Union.
Historically, the Queen goes along with whatever the Prime Minister suggests to her. That has been her history, since she became the Queen of England, and the Supreme has never, to my knowledge, intervened to undermine her authority in Her monarchy. The action by the Supreme Court was thus made into political activism, which will probably make it harder for Boris Johnson to 1) form a functioning government, 2) execute the will of the people, by October 31, 2019, and thwarts the legitimate vote, that never had a “Deal Requirement” attached to it.
I can’t wait to see what Boris does, next, because I believe he will have another conversation with the Queen, and I think she will be angry with her Parliament and Supreme court. At least, she has been consistent and left out the politics, and left the running of the country up to the elected leaders. This time is different, though, because of the actions of the Parliament against her, and her citizens. I speculate, along with several others, like Mayar Tousi, a bright young politically active chap, that boris will break whatever law he is threatened with, and continue to push for the leaving by the deadline, but he could pull out some kind of “deal”, also, because there is a lot of speculation that he could be trying to rehash that old deal, and the old commies in the EU are playing a poker game with him that looks more like they have him cornered, by all their political allies in the UK, the George Soros influenced and paid for groups and a lot of young people thinking they are doing something good, when all they are doing are enslaving themselves to the EU, over what I consider a stupid idea about free movement of EU “Citizens”. My son has tried to make that point to me, in the past, and I just kept saying that is a pitiful price to pay, considering a country has to give up it’s sovereignty to do that, and allow a new version of the USSR to continue to form. I think it is obvious that my son, who lives in Germany, and I disagree on that.
The latest I have seen from the Liberal Democrats(lib-dems) is that they have adopted a strategy that goes against everything the voters want, by platforming for revocation of Article 50, which is the pathway to leaving the EU, by EU Law. That, by itself is a nonstarter, because the lib-dems only have a handful of seats in the House of Commons. but the Labour Party has gone and done essentially the same thing, in their recess conference, just the other day, and has gone full tilt against Brexit, which, for several decades, they were Euro skeptics, even led by the old commie, Jeremy Corbyn, who is now set to lead the Labour Party down the same path as the Democrats in the US are currently headed, all to prevent Brexit. It sure looks like Brexit has succeeded in infecting institutions, and creating a mess of a hypocrisy, doesn’t it?
Meanwhile, The Tories have no official stance on working with the Brexit Party, other than saying that Brexiteers will dilute the vote and allow a Corbyn led government, and I just don’t know what to think of that one, because the house of Commons is led by a Brexiteer, but a good and decent man(that is a funny about him, if you follow any of his comments and debates), Jacob Rees-Mogg, whose sister is a member of the Brexit Party, also a member of the European Parliament, which is only a body for members to run their mouths, since they have zero legislative authority. Jacob has strict party loyalty and is standing firmly behind his PM’s actions, and I just don’t know how to read that, other than what it is. Will the Tories go down in defeat, or can they beat the other parties back, whenever they get to a general election? Boris Johnson is getting the noose around his neck, but he has a couple more options, one, to call a vote of No Confidence of his own party, which I think sounds ridiculous, but may be the only way, and the other is for the Queen to shut down Parliament. Getting crazy, isn’t it?
In the end, I think that Brexit will prevail, but this “Remain” strategy of using the courts to block the will of the people is going to leave a lot of people with bad tastes in their mouths, if this is allowed to continue.
