That’s a very perceptive comment ‘from a US based perspective.’ From the moment David Cameron made a hasty and undignified exit, dark forces have been trying to stop the Brexit process. First the Conservatives were having a leadership election but the contenders were leaned on to step aside so Theresa May, a remainer though not a rabid remainer, (she’s a career politician who is known for never taking sides until she knows which side will best serve her ambition,) was appointed leader and by convention became Prime Minister.

Since then she has given Leave supporters the crappy jobs in government and assiduously undermined them whenever ity looked like they were succeeding. And in the end she sidelined her own political appointments and let civil service bureaucrats negotiate with the Brussels bureaucrats. All bureaucrats want bigger bureaus and of course the planned global government would be the biggest bureau in the world. So we have been well and truly stitched up.

The good thing is Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) who prop up the minority Conservative government feel they have been betrayed (course they have, May and betray are a perfect rhyme,) and will vote down the deal, the Labour Party want a General Election because they sniff a huge victory and will vote against and the Scottish Conservatives, who also feel their interests have been ignored, will vote it down.

With 90 Conservative Members of Parliament suggesting they will either vote against or abstain, there is virtually zero chance of the deal being ratified by parliament unless there is some serious criminal activity.

Opted for comfortable retirement before I was fifty due to health problems and burn out. Now spend my time writing and goofing around. Home: northern England..
