Here’s a good point, well made by Tom Pride – following and expanding on the point made in This Blog in mid-August.
We were promised by the Leave campaign that the UK would regain control of its borders and put a stop to unchecked immigration from EU countries. But just a few days ago, Brexit campaigner and cabinet minister in charge of Brexit negotiations David Davis said there would categorically be no closed border and no border checks on the UK’s only land border with the EU, in Ireland:
This means EU citizens from Poland (for example) and other EU countries will be able to enter the UK unchecked within a couple of hours for as little as £25.
And still not a squeak of protest from lily-livered Brexit supporters at the broken promise and the shameless lies.
What’s wrong with Brexiters? Are they all so scared of their own campaign leaders they daren’t stand up to them?
Maybe their timidity stems from a feeling of inadequacy because most Brexit campaign leaders went to public schools and most Brexit voters didn’t. Or are Brexit supporters all so bowed and cowed and used to tugging their forelocks at their so-called ‘betters’ that they allow them to walk all over them?
