Britain’s Exit from the European Union.
Ask yourself this.
a) Is the United Kingdom a democracy?
b) Does the United Kingdom have a first past the post voting system?
The answer to a) is that it should be. The answer to b) is Yes.
When the result of the Brexit referendum to the question ‘should we stay or should we go?’ turned out to be ‘we should go’, then we should have worked together to leave.
However, the people who voted ‘remain’ have been so vociferous in their desire to remain, that they are fighting tooth and nail to remain. So much so that they are acting like a third world country’s political party who lost an election protesting that the vote was ‘rigged’, the populous was lied to, and every one of those who voted to leave were conned.
This is not the democracy I believe in. One can argue ‘till the cows come home the fairness or otherwise between first past the post or proportional representation, but the fact is that the UK has a first past the post voting system, and MPs should recognise that fact and act accordingly. As should remainers.
In my humble opinion, due to the antics of those who lost the referendum and in consequence threw their collective teddy out of the pram, we are a third world country. We should have left today, 29th March, 2019, but we have an extension. Why? We should be out today, deal or no deal.
I had not seen Banksy’s ‘Devolved Parliament’ until it made the news having been put on display in Bristol Museum and Art Gallery the other day. To me, it just sums up parliament in a nut shell. Well done Banksy. Definitely not so well done are our MPs.
