So much for democracy!

Date published: 02 May 2018


There is now a concerted effort by the Remainers, to overturn the majority result in our 2016 in/out EU referendum, by those who will not accept the result.

Members of the House of Lords have just inflicted a damaging defeat on the Government by passing a "wrecking amendment" by 335 votes to 244 which is designed to keep Britain in the EU indefinitely.

Even PM Theresa May is considering signing up to an agreement that is likely to lead to an "EU Mark Two" Brexit agreement, leading to Britain becoming a "vassal state" of Brussels.

Between the Government and the Lords, they appear determined to ignore the democratic result of the referendum and keep us shackled to the EU, only without any power or representation. 

The problem is that successive governments have been happy to outsource our laws and everything else to a foreign power and many in the Lords receive EU pensions, which they are likely to lose!

So much for democracy!
