ON Friday, TCW’s Caroline ffiske suggested a very good way for voters to sort out Brexit ourselves. I have been thinking that in this electronic age voters should consult each other and organise the tactical voting. Caroline ffiske proposed a very good way of doing this, suggesting that John Longworth could run a focal point for voters. What about a clever IT lady?
I don’t mind who runs this as long as he or she and the staff are all scrupulously honest. They will have to draw up a list of candidates for the whole country and inform the voters in each constituency which candidates support a clean-break Brexit.
The Brexit Party is new and most have no experience of Parliament. That could be improved by the ERG as a group agreeing to work with Brexit Party MPs in Parliament. I’m thinking on the lines of the buddy system where one MP guides another as to how things are done in Parliament. (The Paras and SAS use it and it works.)
The next general election will indeed be the People’s vote. Far better another general election than Tony Blair and Merkel taking over our Parliament (already done, so too late to stop ) and then over-ruling the 2016 vote (their next move) by telling Bercow to set up a vote for another referendum. I can’t think of anything more insulting to those of us who voted Leave in 2016, nor anything more dangerous for democracy, law and order. Why should the voters accept the results of general elections? Just watch: Corbyn will delay and delay the vote on an election. He can say that it’s quite normal for those in power to reject the voters’ will. And he will be right. Thanks Tony and Peter Mandelson and Mutti Merkel.
There’s not much time to get organised, but more than you think.
The voting patterns in this Parliament tell us all we need to know about the present sheep flocks of MPs. Very few of them deserve our trust let alone our votes.
I think the Conservative Party is going to be holed below the waterline. Labour will be slaughtered but don’t believe the Cummings propaganda, the Brexit Party will benefit from a lot of angry Labour voters while the rump of New Labour will vote Liberal.
The next Parliament – after an election – should get rid of the Fixed Term Act. It was written by the Liberals to keep themselves in office. I fear the Lords needs a complete overhaul!
Dave’s bleatings all over the front pages simply confirm the voters’ view that the political establishment and their pals think we’re still in the nineteenth century. Changing the way we govern ourselves is a longer job but I see the direction in which we should travel all around me every day.
