After the British people voted to withdraw from the European Union on June 23, 2016, opposition to what has been dubbed BREXIT has increased.
Opponents have taken to the airwaves and newspapers with numerous scare tactics predicting gloom and doom if Great Britain were to withdraw from the EU.
Their propaganda has been paying off and opposition to BREXIT has increased.
One of the primary things needed is a formal exit plan, but that has been difficult to come by in recent months.
Parliament’s Speaker John Bercow has just ruled to allow a procedural change that could spell the doom of BREXIT.
BBC – Bercow’s unprecedented ruling could change the course of Brexit – Boom! After a humdrum, almost completely unrevealing Prime Minister’s Questions, the Commons erupted over Speaker John Bercow’s decision to allow an attempt to change the rules for the resumed “meaningful vote” debate.
This is no mere technicality. The amendment proposed by former Attorney General Dominic Grieve would require the government to come back within three days, rather than 21, to debate the implications of not having a Brexit deal – if the prime minister’s deal is indeed voted down next Tuesday.
Under the previous rules, that debate would be kicked back to late February, with the Brexit clock ticking remorselessly in the background.
The new Grieve amendment, now passed by MPs, means that in the event the PM loses next week, the Commons will then have a chance to vote on alternative policies – everything from a “managed no-deal” to a further referendum, via a “Norway option” or a reheated version of the current deal, could be on the table…
It seems that the likelihood of Prime Minister Theresa May’s flagship legislation is on the verge of being scuttled by members of her own Parliament.
My friends from Great Britain told me that most of the people they knew were against Great Britain joining the European Union to begin with.
They felt is tantamount to turning over a portion of British sovereignty to the other European countries.
Considering that Great Britain has often been at odds with many European nations, giving them a say in the government and economy was like signing over the country to their enemies.
