Theresa may but she may not. Her penchant for wearing heels is appropriate given how good she is at dragging them. Since the referendum we have now had Six Months and Sweet FA. Theresa desperately wants to be Maggie, but doesn’t have the electoral mandate; and she can’t be Maggie, because Maggie only stayed in power by convincing just enough people in the constituencies where it mattered, to vote Tory and share the spoils of purchasing the stolen goods that constituted our national infrastructure. The family silver has been sold and now the cupboard is bare, our ‘sterling’ currency being anything but that, its market value based only on what investment return can be gained from it (next to bugger all with interest rates so pitifully low). Under Tory then Labour then Tory we have had a ‘brick’ standard for our economy over the past few decades. Little wonder then that for a large minority of voters in Britain, the EU is either better or no worse; and as the EU has ruled against Theresa’s Snoopers’ Charter, they have a valid point.
Many of these ‘Remainers’ believe that the EU needs to be reformed and that this is still achievable. Their intentions may be sincere, but not a single one of them can elaborate how this reform can come about, given the EU’s track record of ignoring any attempts to do so and its contempt for any referendum result which goes against the deterministic European Project to create a continental superstate. Theresa is, like Maggie was, a ‘Remainer’ at heart. A true Tory, a whore to big business and its desires for anything that will reduce the costs of labour. (It was Maggie after all who signed the Single European Act to encourage mass migration to drive down labour costs). Theresa talks a lot of tough guff about immigration but without any sincerity. Her track record as Home Secretary, by making cuts to the UK Border Agency, shows that she is anything but sincere on the matter. Theresa realises that ‘Brexit’ is the only chance that she will ever have to make her mark on the world as a Leader. With Hillary out of the way and Angela on the skids, Theresa could become the most powerful female Head of Government in the world; and a genuine ‘Brexit’, a clean break, would mean no more subordination to the EU. But she won’t go that far, she is still trying for a fudge which will please no-one.
I made my departure, my ‘Leave’ vote, as I recognise that the EU has got beyond the point where it can be reformed, not something which I would have thought a decade and a half ago. But to me, ‘Brexit’ is only worth having if it leads to greater reforms of the United Kingdom, such as it is, possibly away from being a Kingdom or Queendom. An unelected Head of State, an unelected Upper Chamber (Lords rather than Commissioners) and the lack of a written constitution are issues which genuine progressives should be addressing, instead of clinging to the EU. We Britons cannot change the EU, we are outsiders and always have been. The EU will not adopt the common sense solution to its lack of moral authority, of a demerger into a Common Market for the trade in goods and services and nothing more than that. So we must Leave the EU and build a better Britain, better than the Tories can ever offer us and take back the infrastructure which they plundered from us. All this sounds very Old Labour, but that is what I am deep down. The Tories’ procrastination over ‘Brexit’ is because only a minority of them genuinely support it, so the majority are hoping that the longer they can drag it out (with the backing of fraudulent ‘progressives’), the more fed up ‘Leave’ voters will become and say fuck it, why bother?
Finally, one should try to be optimistic and wish good tidings at this time of year; and in keeping with that, the journalist whom I mentioned in an earlier post on this blog must be expecting a single malt from Santa, so merry is he. However, I cannot share his merriment. The contrived ‘migrant crisis’ and the terrorist attacks that have come in its wake do not bode well for a peaceful New Year, as both will continue indefinitely. The globalist enterprise known as the so-called British Broadcasting Corporation, the voice of the political establishment, will accuse those who voted ‘Leave’ of turning their backs on Europe, hence being on the same side as the so-called Islamic State. Just wait.
