DAVID CRAYFORD ---------- REFERENCE TO PART 2 OF MY ARTICLE "WHAT A REAL BLOODY MESS THE WORLD IS IN" DATED 3RD MARCH 2019 ----------
-------- BREXIT, BREXIT, BREXIT ------------
What a real SHAMBLES and CRISIS , of gigantic proportions, this whole situation is in, so much so it has to asked if this is deliberate so that the Government can maintain some legal connection to Europe for the future, or, is it just sheer incompetence by a bunch of elected persons of low intellect.
As I have stated previously, the people of the U.K. voted in a legally established Referendum to come out of the European Union, so again it has to be asked to ALL of these elected persons (So-called Politicians) "What is it about the world "OUT" that you do not understand.
That might very well be a question that these elected persons can not answer in legal terms because there is NO legal definition of the word "OUT" unless it is accompanied by another word or phrase, such as "OUT - SIDE", "OUT - OF DATE", OUT-LAW, or similar. Now let's bear in mind that most of the UK Politicians are Lawyers so they would probably be totally lost as to what the word "OUT" actually means unless they refer to the Common Language of the UK, which they probably cannot do because they consider themselves to be part of the Elite whereby Common English is not within their vocabulary.
To the more normal, and without being derogatory ----- Common person of the UK, "OUT" means "I going OUT", or "I'm getting OUT of here", or "I am OUT with friends", meaning that they are "Outside of their normal or temporary environment, or OUT of a hostile environment", or "They have, or about to exit their normal, temporary, or hostile environment".
Perhaps the people of the UK should tell their elected persons residing in The Palace of Westminster (UK Parliament) to GET OUT AND STAY OUT because of the mess you have all got the UK into by your intransigence, indecision, and incompetence, and it has taken you nearly 3 years to do it. In the meantime, you have cost the UK Hundreds of Millions of Pounds, which could have been better spent on the Health Service or Education; and you are still trying to "Kick the Can down the Road".
Meanwhile, you have, for the second time, voted down the proposed exit plan, and have now voted against a No Deal Brexit, leaving either an extension of time to article 50, which again "Kicks the Can down the Road a little more, or, accepting the present deal, which is apparently not good enough, or, coming up with another plan acceptable to all, which might take another 3 years and more millions of pound sterling, or, stay with the "NO DEAL BREXIT", irrespective of your vote; on the 20th March 2019 and bear with the repercussions of same for a short time until the people of the UK finally pull themselves together and show the European Union just how strong and resilient they and the UK are.
No matter IF, WHAT, and WHEN you decide, I have to say that not one of you elected persons would survive in the commercial world. You would all have been dismissed, in disgrace, if you couldn't come up with acceptable plan within 12 months, or alternatively you would have bankrupted the commercial enterprise you were employed by. Regretfully, you fervently believe that your can make proper professional decisions for the UK and its people who voted OUT in a referendum you initiated, so the people of the UK could have their voice heard.
As for the "Irish Backstop", you have the "Good Friday Agreement (10th April 1998)" you can fall back on to prevent a "Hard Border" in the event of a "HARD NO DEAL BREXIT". It worked well for many years and it prevented further dissent between the Loyalists and Republicans (Ireland and Northern Ireland), or have you all forgotten that factor - conveniently or otherwise.
From what I read within all the drafts proposals the UK and Europe have produced, I do believe that both the UK and Europe are purposely frustrating the whole thing so that the vote to EXIT Europe is eventually forgotten and relegated to the archives, contrary to the vote of the UK people. After all, Europe really does need the UK to remain in Europe. In the same way but to a far lesser degree, the UK needs Europe.
Also remember, other weaker countries in Europe, who know they have made a mistake in joining the EU, are watching carefully and may follow the UK in an EXIT, then the EU falls apart at the seams, the Euro collapses in value, and the archives get a lot bigger.
Go back to the original EEC (European Economic Commission), if necessary, and forget, and certainly stop being so adventurous and dogmatic; you are not so important as you believe you are.
