Parliament has shown itself to be in direct opposition to the will of the people it theoretically represents. Brexit-related campaigning starts with a meeting of Brexit supporters this FRIDAY.
The ability of the illusory British bourgeois democracy to dupe the workers of this country is fast eroding.
Nearly three years after voting to the leave the European Union, workers still have no idea when, how or even if that promised exit will actually take place.
Despite 17.4 million people delivering a direct democratic mandate for leave in June 2016, the overwhelming majority of British parliamentarians are committed remainers. As a result, ‘Brexit day’ has passed with Britain still a member of the EU.
According to the law passed two years ago, 29 March was supposed to be the day Britain left the European bosses’ club; prime minister Theresa May promised on more than 80 occasions that the people’s vote would be honoured and the country would leave the union on schedule.
Instead, she has seen her withdrawal deal (which is really a treaty) rejected three times by Parliament; and rejected by leavers and remainers alike. In an attempt to satisfy everyone, she has satisfied no-one. For remainers, any deal to leave the EU was too much, and for leavers, her deal was ‘Brexit’ in name only.
