If Brexit is the Will of the People...

brexit_burn_map_logo_80
...why don't the people know what Brexit is?  We've been talking to people about Brexit for over a year and the majority say things like "I don't know what's happening" or "[the politicians] don't tell us what it all means" whilst talking to those who still advocate leaving produces these sort of statements:  ​ "We're leaving for our econ...

You can stop Tory and Labour's extreme version of Brexit. It will take about 3 minutes. Here's how.

Brexit firey logo: not in my name
The best analogy we can find for the next election is of choosing contemporary Britain's mode of execution: disembowelled by Brexit, and ready for the coup de grace, which executioner will you vote for?  For many it will be an impossible choice. Tory and Labour have designed their own Brexit (not ours) and are striving to force it through...

The Labour / Tory Brexit collaboration is destroying UK democracy

UK Politicians start brexit process prematurely
The evidence is very clear: it is not currently possible to be both pro-Labour and pro-EU.  This article will have a quick look at the relevant evidence (which shows that logically, Labour should be viewed as the Tory's collaborator on Brexit) and will then consider what actions by citizens could help to save the UK from her pol...

Brexit Sanity Check for UK MPs: none of your constituents voted for this.

uk_map_broken_by_brexit3_450
Open letter to UK Members of Parliament Dear Member of Parliament (MP) Many 'interested' individuals and organisations are busy running interference on Brexit, deploying smoke and mirrors to try to ensure they get what they want, apparently at any cost, resulting in a divided and confused population. But the basic facts are very clear; we already k...

It is time to stop blaming leave voters for Brexit

signpost_brexit_sanity
The common criticism of leave voters - that they've not been blessed with huge intellects basically - logically requires a scenario wherein some honest politician said to them before the referendum: " There is no Brexit benefit for you, but some of the elite will get a lot richer by feeding off the ruins of the UK's public sector, some of them will...

Brexit: The will of the people or the will of extreme politicians? A simple test.

b2ap3_thumbnail_hands_grabbing_brexit_20171205-055014_1
 A few people still believe that the UK politicians (in their efforts to leave the EU) are implementing the will of the people but the evidence suggests exactly the contrary.  It's about time this was cleared up, so here's a logical exercise which should provide the definitive answer. The suggestion is that the UK's political leaders are ...

Propaganda or Prescience? UK Government advice on risks of leaving the EU.

Government_case_for_remaining_in_EU
Before the UK's EU referendum vote, the pro-remain half of the UK government sent a leaflet out to homes which made the case for remaining. (There is a pdf of it  here ) It was not well received by the Euro-sceptic press or leave advocates. For example, the Daily Express, quoting Nigel Farage, ran the headline "How to return you...

"The Will of the people": a political manipulation, not an argument

political-hands-grabbing-brexit2
In 2016, as the dust settled from the UK's surprise referendum vote to leave the EU, the Tory government assembled a new cabinet who announced that the referendum showed "The Will of the People" and therefore the delivery of Brexit must be regarded as an almost religious duty; the Tory papers joined in and promulgated this idea (democracy...
