Letter to The Editor - Brexit could easily have been designed and implemented by now
To The Australian The credibility of Britain as a democracy is in tatters, but not because "Mrs May's proposed deal deserved better than a death knell in the Commons" ("Crunch time for Brexit havoc", 14/3). It is because an unscrupulous political elite has worked ever since the referendum result to frustrate the decision to leave the EU. Mrs May's deal has long been fully exposed as bogus; and now the "Remain" majority in Parliament are set to make a "no deal" exit impossible. Everyone knows that during the last two years a genuine Brexit could easily have been designed and implemented by now. The betrayal of Britain bids fair to see, before too long, the end of free speech, common law protections of personal liberty and the glory of the monarchy. Alas, poor Britain: "unhappy is the land that has no heroes."
