David Cameron made a promise that he did not think he’d have to keep to have a referendum he did not think he would lose. Mr. Boris Johnson decided to back the side he did not believe in because he did not think it would win. Then Gove, who said he would not run, did, & Boris who said he would run said he wouldn’t, & Theresa May who did not vote for Brexit got the job of making it happen.
She called the election she said she would not & lost the majority David Cameron had not expected to win in the 1st place. She triggered Article 50 when we did not need to & said we would talk about the trade at the same time as the divorce deal & the EU said they would not so we did not. People thought she would not get the divorce settled but she did, but only by agreeing to separate arrangements for Northern Ireland when she had promised the DUP she wouldn’t.
Then the Cabinet agreed on a deal but they had not, & David Davis who was Brexit Secretary but was not said it was not what people had voted for & he couldn’t support what he had just supported & left. Boris Johnson who had not left then wished that he had & did, but it was a bit late for that. Dominic Raab becomes the new Brexit secretary.
People thought Theresa May wouldn’t get a withdrawal agreement negotiated, but once she had they wished that she had not, because hardly anybody liked it whether they wanted to leave or not. Miss. Jacob Rees-Mogg kept threatening a vote of no-confidence in her but not enough people were confident enough people would not have confidence in her to confidently call a no-confidence vote.
Dominic Raab said that he had not really been the Brexit Secretary either & resigned. Somebody else took the job but it probably is not worth remembering who they are as they are not really doing the job either as the Olly Robbins is.
Then she said she would call a vote & did not, that she wouldn’t release some legal advice but had to, that she would get some concessions but did not, & got cross that Juncker was calling her nebulous when he was not but probably should have been.
At some point, Jacob Rees Mogg & others called a vote of no confidence in her, which she won by promising to leave, so she can stay. But they said she had really lost it & should go, at the same time as saying that people who voted Leave knew what they were voting for which they couldn’t possibly have because we still don’t know now, & that we should leave the vote to Leave vote alone but have no-confidence in the no-confidence vote which won by more.
The GOVT also argued in court against us being able to say we did not want to leave after all but it turned out we could. She named on her agreement date for the vote which nobody expected to pass while pretending that no deal which nobody wants is still possible (even though we know we can just say we are not leaving), & that we can’t have a second referendum because having a democratic vote is undemocratic. & of course, as expected she loses. Some people are talking about a managed no-deal that is not a deal but is not no-deal either.
Addendum to the Brexit storm in a teacup. Time for some Tusk Love closer to home:
There’s a special place in hell for those who promote the poisonous promises of nationalism with little thought for its consequences.
