DARKEST HOUR – THE GOVERNMENT IS FAILING THE BRITISH PEOPLE


 

This is an open letter to The Honourable Jacob Rees-Mogg MP, Chairman of the European Research Group in the House of Commons. The letter itself has been sent to Mr Rees-Mogg in hard copy as well as to my own Member of Parliament, Mr Douglas Ross, and to others listed at the end of this post.

The situation regarding the leadership and management of the process of the UK leaving the European Union has moved from being worrying to being absurd.

I’m one of the 17.4 million people who voted for the UK to regain its sovereignty. It was made clear to the electorate during the EU Referendum debate that leaving the EU would mean, inter alia, leaving the single market, leaving the customs union and extricating the UK from the tentacles of the European Court of ‘Justice’ (sic).

The government at the time spent £9 million of taxpayers’ money seeking to persuade people to vote in favour of our nation being governed by a foreign oligarchy. Thankfully, the majority of voters saw through the EU propaganda (for that is what the government literature was) and so, in theory, and without wishing to put too fine a point on it, set us on a course towards recovering British sovereignty.

The British government’s ‘Vote Remain’ literature also stated categorically, ‘This is your decision. The government will implement what you decide’.

Regrettably, more than 18 months after the British people decided that the UK should leave the European Union, the government looks to be absolutely nowhere near implementing that decision. Of itself, that is a dangerous affront to democracy. It is also a manifestation of the blistering incompetence of the Conservative government, the majority of whom – as a matter of fact – would prefer that the UK remained within the European Union. Is it any wonder, then, that the government has achieved virtually nothing since the British people instructed it to remove the United Kingdom from the European Union?

It saddens me greatly to observe that the process of the UK leaving the EU is now characterised by the nature of the European Union itself, namely one of a grand deceit. Perhaps that shouldn’t surprise me? We hear the Prime Minister and other ministers asserting that they’re getting on with the job of enacting the EU Referendum result whereas, in fact, they’re doing nothing of the sort, nor do they intend to.

I find this extremely worrying for the fabric of our society: a situation where the British government is acting knowingly against the express wishes of the electorate whilst bending over backwards to persuade us otherwise. In short, we’re being lied to; we’re being sold down the river. Your political party, Mr Rees-Mogg, is playing with fire, but appears to be oblivious to the fact.

In your role as Chairman of the European Research Group, I believe that you now have a duty to strain every sinew to make the following happen:

To foment the removal of Mrs May as Prime Minister; she is not up to the job. We face the greatest crisis of freedom and democracy since 1939 (the timing of the release of the film ‘Darkest Hour’ is apposite here) and yet Mrs May is bumbling around like some latter-day Chamberlain.

To have a pro-Brexit Conservative politician voted in to the role of Prime Minister. I know that you can’t control this, as such, but somehow the Conservative Party as a whole must be made to realise that without a Brexiteer Prime Minister, the party will be heading towards electoral oblivion. The consequences of that vis-à-vis the Corbyn/Momentum rising star hardly bear thinking about.

To make every effort to support a Brexiteer Prime Minister to form a government reflecting the Referendum result itself, ie a majority who want the UK to leave the European Union and who voted that way in June 2016. Clearly, the government should include pro-EU ministers, but in the minority.

This isn’t rocket science, sir. The political class has spent a generation since the UK was originally, dubiously led into EU membership steadily distancing itself from the British electorate, such is the nature of the European Union itself: essentially, and by design, a democracy-free zone.

The British political class must now rediscover what it means to serve the electorate: ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people’. Right now, your colleagues are showing precious few signs of knowing what this means in practice and are risking all hell being let loose if they cock this up. At the moment, the Conservative Party is indeed showing every sign of cocking up the process of extricating the UK from the European Union; a cock-up from which the Party might well never recover.

I apologise for banging on a bit, but it’s terribly frustrating for a citizen-oik like me to watch politicians, societal elites (the CBI, the House of Lords, Blair, Heseltine, Clegg, Clarke et al) and much of the mainstream media – ably led by the BBC, of course – colluding to do their utmost to usurp the will of the British people. This is a terribly dangerous attitude to take towards freedom and democracy. So, the sooner you and your ERG and other like-minded colleagues get your act together and reverse this hopeless trajectory of the Conservative Party and government, the better for the British people.

I have copied this letter to others for information and will be pressing my own constituency MP, Mr Douglas Ross, to support you.

  1. I agree with every word of this piece, MM, but unfortunately my MP is Sir Vince Cable. Enough said.
    I fear that Brexit is teetering on a knife edge because our negotiators don’t really want us out anyway, and now we have Blair saying that if the EU made a few mods a second referendum would keep us in the EU. I hope no-one falls for that. They have form.
    When Blair held the rolling presidency he gave away some of our loot to the EU in exchange for them considering changes to the CAP; we gave them the money, they ignored our proposal.
    When Cameron went to the EU pleading for changes so as to repel the risk of a refendum they sent him away with his tail between his legs. They are determined on implementing the Grand Plan – and that is their inherent weakness, I hope. As the world changes the sclerotic EU will become less and less relevant. I just don’t want to be around at the time.

    I’m starting to wonder if the EU and the government/elites are working together to make a display of leaving and to draw it out indefinitely so eventually any of their failings will be blamed on us. Ideally for them there be a second referendum at an unknown future date, or at least talk of it, but no more referendums on anything else because we’re obviously completely stupid and unruly and all their efforts from now on are going to be towards trying to save us from our mistake.

  4. This video by Stefan Molyneux takes about forty minutes to watch but is worth the time it takes.

    It explains how this manipulated global financial system of Fiat currencies has led to explosive population growth. When it collapses, as it will by design, it’ll lead to massive depopulation. We’re all going to have to face up to this, we;re seeing the early rumblings now.

    Sorry to be so depressing but forewarned is forearmed.

    This video is a very good analysis.

    Do you really think our government don’t know what’s going on? Their policies, betrayal, open borders and globalist sell out are going to condemn many of the people they were elected to represent to death.

    Darkest hour indeed!

  5. The elephant in the room is our FPTP (first past the post) electoral system. It more or less guarantees that LabCon will rule the roost.

    In Germany the relatively new party AfD (with same % vote share that UKIP achieved in the 2015 GE have 92 ‘MPs’ and will be the official opposition. There’s no chance of new entrant in UK politics achieving that. Behind all the Brexit chaos lies the truth that the UK is run by an EU sympathising political cartel.

    Another very accurate description of the current situation, MM. I am greatly disturbed by reports of the EU position on a transition period which will impose not just existing rules, regulations and laws upon the UK for that period (allegedly up to December 2020) but also any new ones which we will have had no hand in drafting, moderating or opposing. That is not a transition (which by definition implies change) but an extension of full membership less any rights. It is suggested that the government is minded to agree. It is in fact an elephant trap we would do well to avoid like the plague.

    To hear David Davis talk about the time it takes to agree EU laws, in an attempt to minimise the risk to the UK of such an agreement, struck me as, at best, utter complacency if not outright disingenuity; there are several EU laws already on the shelf that we have been successfully opposing, like the financial transaction tax. They will be swiftly dusted off and imposed on us during the nearly 2 years of – to quote JRM – vassal statehood. Highly damaging to the UK but few other parts of Europe because of the sheer pre-eminence of the City of London in financial affairs. Either government can’t see this, in itself worrying, or it is part of a longer plan to delay Brexit until sentiment can be sufficiently manipulated by absurd reports like today’s supposed negative forecasts on economic impact, not one of which claims any positive impact is possible at all under any possible scenario. Sensible people will give such preposterously biased propaganda the attention they deserve and put them in the bin with all the other “predictions” from Project fear, each one more wide of the mark than the previous one, but they do point to a clear strategy to shape public opinion in only one direction. Calls for a second vote on the final deal bring such tactics into better focus. Of course, it is just possible that the government really is simply inept and the slippery slope upon which they have set us is by accident rather than design, but somehow I find that even more worrying. Disaster is staring us in the face and if someone doesn’t sort this out, and soon, we will have the worst of all possible worlds: continued EU membership in all but name (or even full membership, Brexit having been reversed by skulduggery) AND a Corbyn-led government. That really would be time for a stiff drink of good malt whisky and a loaded pistol!

    More power to your elbow. I hope you let us know if, and how, JRM responds to your letter.

  16. Sadly – it’s all too late. Here are my prognostications.

    The likely future options are

    1 Existing government get their act together

    2 the Tories get a new team in charge and get their act together (in time to make any difference)

    3 current wibble continues and we get BRINO (later GE gives us option 6 below by default)

    4 continuing muddle leads to GE, Corbyn victory and second referendum – vote changes to Remain – art 50 withdrawn, or we stay under worse conditions (no rebate, adopt euro etc)

    5 continuing muddle leads to GE, Corbyn victory and second referendum – vote stays as Brexit. Political and European chaos continues with increased volume)

    6 continuing muddle leads to GE, Corbyn victory and BRINO – subsequent economic collapse and withdrawal from world stage.

    NB – I think the idea that Corbyn victory is manageable because we can vote them out later is specious. Because a Corbyn victory probably does not lead to exit.

    To summarise – we end up with

    1 – Exit
    2 – Exit
    3 – BRINO followed by 6
    4 – Remain
    5 – Exit
    6 – BRINO

    Ergo, the only chance to regain borders etc is option 1 or 2. Or take a punt on 5.

  17. I’ve posted a lot on various blogs and social media in the last few days about the Tory betrayal and sellout. The Tory traitors don’t give a [expletive deleted] anymore about their voters and supporters. The Tory strategy is to shit on their own voters at will because they believe that their supporters will be more scared of Corbyn as PM. Not any more, I fear. I now believe that more people despise the traitorous Tories than fear a Corbyn Government.

    This is why the Tory Party will be destroyed forever.

    MM,

    Although I tend to agree with almost all of your ‘Original Posts’, I must say that I have concerns over your plea to “To foment the removal of Mrs May…”.

    I think that route, although attractive as a knee-jerk reaction to the procrastination of our exit from under the coat-tails of the EU, would be a step too far. The ensuing (and probably pathetic) bun-fight would destroy any vestiges of respect the Conservative Party may deserve (and they don’t deserve much!). The possible result of such a bun-fight could be to allow the frightening thought that a new government might be able to suspend Brexit and even ask for a second referendum, despite how undemocratic that would be.

    My preferred option would be to implore Mr Rees-Mogg to put all his efforts into guiding the PM toward seeing the error of her bungling and strengthen her commitment to act in accordance with the will of the plebiscite.

    Although I am appalled at the events of today re the ‘Transition Period’, I have no wish to throw the baby out with the bathwater…

    Kind regards,

    Arfur

    Ps, I also consider that serious thought should be given to just walking out…

      Yes, I understand your point of view, arfur. However, I think there comes a time in a situation like this when a risk, however huge, must be taken. The risk is that any process of defenestrating the Prime Minister could result in a disaster for the Tories, a collapse of the fragile Tory/DUP House of Commons majority, the calling of another General Election and the consequent bigger disaster of the British people electing a Marxist-Fascist government under Jeremy Corbyn. So be it. That’s democracy in action. When it dawns on the British people that we will have created an extraordinary, mega-mess of our own making, we might just see a renaissance of the 2 main political parties in the UK. Then again, we might not, of course.

      On the other hand, for me anyway, the potential reward of the Tories getting their act together at what is rapidly becoming the 11th hour and 59th minute, dumping a dangerously ineffective leader, establishing a government which is fit for the purpose of taking the UK out of the EU and, moreover and most important, reaping all of the economic, political and social benefits of Brexit is a reward worth pursuing.

      I just don’t believe that muddling through inelegantly is an option any longer. The politicians are taking us for fools and that’s a very bad situation to be in – for them and for us; but mainly for us.

        My instant reaction to your reply is “Be careful what you wish for.” But, to be fair, the ‘muddling through inelegantly’ statement is very true and a clear change is probably, in the long run, what is necessary.

        However, it does seem that there is now a ‘smoke and mirrors’ strategy by influential people (more influential than mere politicians) to make the Brexit process a morass of stalling opportunities which will in all likelihood end up in the populace getting either bored or violent.

        That there is so little integrity, vision and fortitude in the government and objectivity in the media is a source of great frustration and disappointment to many of us.

        I hope for, but am unlikely to see, a clear path being plowed in the immediate future.

    The majority of Parliamentary Conservative Party is pro-Remain and at odds with Party members and voters as the Referendum result showed.

    Theresa May was appointed as PM unchallemged on the basis that ‘BREXIT means BREXIT’ but she and her cohorts are doing their utmost best to frustrate and delay BREXIT. If the PM was serious about BREXIT she would have removed those in the Cabinet who are actively undermining BREXIT and also desciplined the likes of Soubry and Grieve who are also undermining BREXIT at every opportunity. The counrty has spoken, Parliament has spoken in passing Art 50 and now must get on and deliver BREXIT means BREXIT.

    Remoaners, aided and abetted by the CBI and others, are using the old EU trick of hiding behind the economic argument when in fact the real threat of EU membership is political.

    I am not worried if the Tory Govt falls and Corbyn becomes PM because in 2022 we can vote Corbyn out. EU membership is a diffferent matter; if BREXIT does not mean fully leaving the EU the UK will become a vassal state of Brussels and there will be no escape from the EU.

    Dear Sirs, I understand your comparison, but please (in private, if necessary) study some history. Chamberlain was in a very different situation. His “appeasement” was done to buy time – nearly two years of it – to allow us to re-arm and catch up with Germany’s state of armament. If he hadn’t done that, the Battle of Britain, and all history that followed it, may well have been very different. I recommend “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich” by William L Shirer for further details.
    I do however agree with your sentiment about the state of the current Government and Prime Minister. Chamberlain resigned, trashing his career and reputation. But he was a gentleman. The current Prime Minister should also resign – for different reasons, in a very different situation. But go she must. Cheers, Ivor Macadam.

      No, the time was gained as a fortuitous bi-product of his weakness and appeasement. Chamberlain and Halifax did everything they could to please (appease) Hitler.

      http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/the-road-to-world-war-ii-how-appeasement-failed-to-stop-hitler-a-646481.html

      Quote: “As a result, in the summer of 1938 all eyes were on Prime Minister Chamberlain who, despite his 69 years, was inexperienced when it came to foreign policy. With his upturned collar, Homburg hat and watch chain, he seemed like a relic of the 19th century. Nevertheless, behind Chamberlain’s old-fashioned appearance lay a serious determination which led Hitler to call him a “crazy old bastard.”

      Chamberlain, the conservative product of a family of politicians, was part of a large faction that sought to appease Germany by fulfilling its wishes, provided they appeared legitimate and were not enforced with violence.

      Appeasement was a policy that fed on emotions as well as intellect, at least with Chamberlain. The British prime minister had lost his beloved cousin in World War I. From then on, he advocated the basic principle of all pacifists: Wars have no winners, only losers.”

      Can you, though, be certain that the “transition period”, which if reports of what it entails are true will be no such thing, is not designed to do exactly the same: buy time? This time around though the grace it buys will not be used to strengthen British defences but weaken them and manipulate public opinion into voting to remain within the clutches of the EU. That is not necessarily a far-fetched conspiracy theory the way things are currently going.

    I have also taken the liberty of posting the link to this article on Going Postal where I think it will be well received. (Old Goat is a frequent poster there there too). This cannot have enough publicity as far as I am concerned.

    Love it, sir – well done.

    Posted a link to Going Postal.

    I have my doubts as to whether there’ll be any sort of reaction, though…

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
