It is encouraging that the positive voices of those who recognise the benefits of gaining our independence, sovereignty and the ability to improve the lot of British citizens, commerce and businesses are being heard.
This includes agriculture which has for too long been relentlessly driven into the ground, shackled to the Common Agricultural Policy. The EU and its masters have since we joined, tried their best to decimate British Agriculture, and turn farmers into park keepers who do not compete with the less efficient farming practices in other EU countries.
Fortunately we are made of sterner stuff than they anticipated. Some did sadly fall by the wayside but most have survived despite reduced income, too many unhelpful rules, regulations and tariffs which suit only France and Germany.
Let us hope sanity prevails and the final countdown to Independence Day is managed appropriately, calmly and with dignity.
The reports before Christmas of EU ‘plans’ in the event of a clean break Brexit, for aviation, transport, travel, and the exports of goods, were insulting and ridiculous.
Mrs May should have immediately countered by saying the UK would in that case introduce similar regulations. More Europeans come to the UK than British travel to Europe, and the two way traffic of goods between Great Britain and the EU is heavily loaded towards their exports coming here. Of course they would not want to disrupt that flow, millions of European workers depend upon the UK buying their goods.
Should we forgive that minority of MPs, of all parties, for their bad behaviour, lack of respect and the shame they bring to Parliament? Hopefully they will recognise how their thoughtless actions are viewed, and they will mend their ways with the dawn of a New Year.
However, some need reminding it is a privilege to sit on those famous green benches, particularly the person who sits in the Speaker’s Chair. He should remain neutral be dignified and fair. Regrettably the current Speaker is neither and shows little respect for the traditions of the House.
Those who mistakenly believe they are more important than their office need reminding they are not.
The arrogance of MPs who have chosen to ignore the democratic decision of 17.4 million voters, by implying we are ignorant is offensive. They are going against the will of the people, and some verbally abuse fellow MPs who recognise the opportunities, and support the result of the Referendum. This coupled with the knowledge that both Conservative and Labour manifestos pledged that Parliament would deliver the Brexit we voted for.
Those who suggest a second referendum insult the public. Mostly Remainers, they see an opportunity to reverse the 2016 Referendum. No doubt they are influenced by Brussels who insist you keep voting until you reach the answer which suits the EU.
The current mess is not the prospect of Brexit, it is the shambles and uncertainty that the Prime Minister has allowed to develop through her appeasement to her ‘friends’ in Brussels, and determination to deliver a ‘soft’ Brexit. Despite her words, it is clear she wishes the UK to remain tethered to the EU.
We need a leader who genuinely believes in Brexit and respects the democratic decision of the majority who voted Leave.
I trust she and her ministers will be held to account during these final days by the dignified, honourable and brave MPs who respect those who voted to allow the UK to look outwards and trade globally and independently. To control our borders, protect British jobs for British people, our schools, hospitals and supply of housing, currently under so much pressure.
The destiny of the UK is at stake.
