Letter to The Editor - A significant win for the Leave cause is the likely result of the next election
To The Age Nick Miller is wrong to state that the de facto UK election campaign now beginning "will centre on whether risking a no-deal Brexit" is or is not desirable ("A parting scuffle as fight for power looms", 11/9). No, it will in fact centre on whether or not the UK will leave the EU or remain a member. The short-term frustration of Boris Johnson's plans to give effect to the decision of the people in the 2016 referendum will soon be a thing of the past. Remainers have won a battle and lost the war. This is because too many Britons now realise that their traditional freedoms will be permanently lost if they do not get out of the trap. Thus, a significant win for the Leave cause is the likely result of the next election, and then the new House of Commons will facilitate and not obstruct the nation's departure.
