It turns out that the Swamp is as deep as the Atlantic Ocean. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, will be allowed to stand in the way of the emerging neoliberal World State, and certainly nothing voted in by the gammon (Gammon is British English for Deplorables).
Thanks for the post and clarification. I’ve been following a lot of Brexiters. They are determined but I can see where this nightmare is wearing at them down. I hope they are able to prevail.
Wat Tyler I have wondered why I only heard of him in Chesterton history of England.
I don’t see how one can call this a peasants revolt when you have the following leading lights:
Boris: Eton and Oxford,
Nigel: Dulwich college - a post boys school just below Eton
Rees-Mogg: Eton and Oxford.
These are quite the opposite of Margaret Thatcher, a shop-keeper’s daughter who was a true conservative.
This was a Scottish court, not the Supreme Court, which latter I believe may be the next and final instance.
My view of Parliament’s deliberations on the eve of pro-rogation left me appalled. Johnson had said he’d rather be dead in a ditch than ask Brussels for an extension of time for Brexit. Parliament on the spot and out of Johnson’s presence and over the Government’s objections, passes a law making no-deal Brexit not an option, and right then they wanted to impeach Johnson based solely on the dead-in-the-ditch statement he made before they even passed the law! He “violated” a law that wasn’t yet in effect just by speaking his mind. These are not lawmakers, they are snowflakes! Are there snowflakes in Italy’s legislature, too? Is this some self-serving international mass hysteria to counter the rise of economic nationalism that Trump and Johnson represent? I can’t bear to watch another session. It’s a good thing they’re pro-rogated. “Girly Slap” indeed.
