It is Gaudete Sunday (3rd of Advent) and O Sapientia in the Use of Sarum. I am feeling very worn down by the comings and going of the efforts of Mrs Theresa May to save her “deal” with a Parliament that doesn’t want it, and the EU that has had enough of re-negotiations and will not allow any further changes.
Brexit can be delivered only on one of three conditions:
- A hard border with customs and checks between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland
- The invasion and colonisation of Ireland by the UK
- Handing Northern Ireland over to the Republic of Ireland (allowing citizens to keep their British nationality if they wish, and their being given Irish nationality)
The first is likely to be the one that happens, causing a revival of the troubles between Sinn Fein / IRA and the UK. There are several truths about the consequences in the UK and Europe, and I am through with discussing them because I can only go by what everyone else is reading too. Brexit cannot be delivered otherwise than by letting the clock run down, and it would happen automatically with all the consequences that will ensue.
I read this in a Facebook group, and it makes a lot of sense. If only…
If only MPs had the courage to say:
“We respect the will of the slight majority of those who voted in the 2016 Referendum, but we are duty-bound to act in the best interests of our constituents and the country; therefore we are aborting the flawed attempt at leaving the EU, believing it would cause huge damage to the UK and will be putting our energy into reforming the EU and fixing the domestic issues which caused the protest vote in the first place.”
