We only had one vote to commit us to Brexit – now we’re facing a THIRD one on Theresa May’s duff deal

Theresa May: A monumental hypocrite.

How utterly ridiculous.

Having failed to get her imbecilic Brexit deal passed after no less than two attempts, Theresa May is threatening MPs with a third.

Does anybody remember – it wasn’t that long ago – how we were all told we couldn’t have another referendum on whether to leave the EU because it was “undemocratic”?

We were told the people had spoken and the decision must be respected.

Well, MPs have spoken on Mrs May’s draft withdrawal agreement. But Mrs May won’t respect their decision.

Why is the former decision sacrosanct while the latter is treated as a mistake?

Why is Mrs May insisting on vote after vote until she gets the result she wants? Remember the outrage over that behaviour when EU nations were forced to vote again on major treaties that they rejected?

Why is this monumental hypocrite trampling on democracy in this way?

Theresa May will make a third attempt to get her EU withdrawal deal through Parliament in the next week.

She told MPs that if her deal fails again to get their backing, a lengthy delay to Brexit may be needed.

The prime minister’s warning comes ahead of a Commons vote later on whether to ask the EU for permission to delay Brexit beyond 29 March.

MPs voted on Wednesday evening to reject a no-deal Brexit under any circumstances.

    Is it possible the speaker, as the embodiment of Parliament, can refuse to allow the deal to be tabled again, unless it is substantially and legally different? I thought I saw something about ths a couple of days ago. That would, I expect, guarantee a change of Tory leader, but not a general election.

  2. Stu

    Beating MPs into submission is neither clever nor honourable and is unworthy of her position.
    Even those MPs who are considering changing their minds are doing so just to get it over and done with – to quote many “it’s the best worse deal”.

    The US made that same choice and got Trump !

  3. Growing Flame

    A very good point, worth repeating.
    Another point worth repeating concerns the endless criticism of MPs for failing to find an agreed solution. In defence of MPs of all Parties (did I really just say that?) the British adult population was no more united in their views at the Referendum than Parliament is today. Let’s not forget that only about 37% of eligible adults voted to Leave, another 35% voted Remain, and the remaining 28% did not vote. Hardly a ringing endorsement of ANY policy. So it’s a bit unfair to accuse MPs of failing to find a consensus. The voters didn’t either!
