AND THESE

BREXIT - THEY’VE FAILED US


They didn’t have to take any notice of the referendum result – it was advisory only.

They didn’t do any preparation before triggering Article 50.

They had no idea what they wanted.

They had no idea what was possible.

They had no idea how long it would take so they triggered prematurely.

They lied about what preparations they’d made – none.

They were leaving the EU, not the other way round and the EU didn’t have to do anything to help but they STILL haven’t recognised this.

They think they can leave yet still keep the benefits that they want to keep - intellectually challenged.

They pressed ahead even though they were warned many times by experts that it was a stupid act of self-harm and that we’d end up in a worse position.

They ignore the effect on individuals and their rights.

They ignore the real effects on trade, regulations, customs, scientific and other agreements, security, continued availability of food and medicines and dismiss the importance of manufacturing business plans.

They devised a plan that the EU has already said is not acceptable yet they're still pressing ahead with it. That's boneheaded.

They are arrogant and confrontational. They think they know everything but they know nothing.

They trashed the UK’s reputation for fairness and honourable dealings.

They antagonise EU member states offensively, needlessly and recklessly.

Meanwhile, they continue to ignore the country’s real ills, created by their own cruel policies. The country is left to free-wheel from one social catastrophe to another while they are otherwise occupied playing stupid games with our future.

They’re not fit for office . . . or for anything at all really.
