In Britain, Boris Johnson has done everything legally possible to push Brexit over the line to completion, but a large contingent his own party has shown its true colors and figuratively and literally crossed over to the enemy camp to defeat the effort. Will the Remainers be able to forestall a General Election? Maybe they can. And maybe they’ll even find a way to cancel Brexit. But the real question is, have the English had enough? Has the open and shameless flouting of the people’s will reached the point where the English will do something about it? You may ask what? After all, Britain is a Constitutional Monarchy where the elected representatives of the people in Parliament are the ultimate legal authority. Is there anything the citizens can do if the various parties conspire to defy the will of the people and refuse to allow a General Election?
There surely is. Any Pro-Brexit voter whose MP voted against Boris Johnson this week can write and e-mail and let his MP know that when the next election finally rolls around the MP will be out on his ear and Nigel Farage will be providing a replacement under his Brexit Party banner. And he can add that this unfortunate MP shouldn’t expect to be elected for anything higher than dog catcher for the rest of his natural life. And he should ask his friends to send the same. In fact, Farage should already be publishing the names of all MPs who voted against Brexit and represent districts that voted for it. I’ll bet that should be an interesting list. There’s nothing an elected official likes less than the prospect of having to work for a living.
And that’s just the beginning. Call up Farage’s office and volunteer time and give money to help get publicity and public opinion rolling. Farage can use the money to buy advertising space in the papers and news sites. He can use the money to do research on these Remainers and identify their links to globalist interests that benefit from Brussels’ hegemony over Britain. There’s plenty that can be done if you’re angry enough.
A good example of how this can work occurred during the US 2018 Senate Elections. Despite the supposed mid-term doldrums that swept the Democrats into the majority in the House, the Senate races were predominantly in red states and there were at least four democrats who were incumbents in very red states. These were targeted by the Republican Senate Campaign Committee to showcase how these senators had voted against Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court based on the lunatic charges and outright libel of a partisan hack. And all four of these senators were ousted easily.
It’s easy to get angry and spout off about politicians. But doing something, even something as easy as sending an e-mail, takes some willpower. So that’s the question. Are the English fed up with their disloyal government? Are they ready to get up off their butts and do something? I think they are. And I expect they will hear from Farage very soon. Hopefully Farage and Johnson can begin to coordinate how the coming election can be arranged between the Loyal Tories and the Brexit Party. If they are smart, as soon as the date of the election is nailed down, they should begin a campaign to wake up the country and lay out their platform. Let Brexit be just the beginning of reclaiming the country for its citizens. Many Labour MPs are from districts that went heavily for Brexit. Adding their seats to a Brexit Party constituency would begin an important realignment that is long overdue. It would be similar to how Rust Belt Democrats crossed over to vote for Donald Trump.
I am encouraged by the determination that the English people showed in making the Brexit vote a success. I am sure that they have the stamina to see this process through to a successful close. It will be necessary to throw the globalists out of Parliament to finish the job but it will provide the added benefit of producing a working majority in Parliament that knows it is accountable to the voters.
