Speak UP Against No-Deal Brexit
3 weeks ago
I was so outraged by this that I felt obliged to write to my MP, breaking my vow to give him the benefit of the doubt on Conservative policy. This is my brief email.
Dear Mr Mayhew
A brief note to say how offensive I find it that a Secretary of State could gloat in this way about removing the rights of British citizens. Whatever one’s view on Brexit, surely we do not wish to be associated with the phrase “the will of the people” the slogan of the 20th century regimes which Britain fought in the second world war.
In any case, clearly untrue. The most that can be claimed is that this was voted for by a third of the electorate, and I would guess that most of those did not think they were voting to surrender their rights.
