Letter to The Editor - The House should change direction and vote for a no-deal exit
To The Australian A comment by Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez ("EU lights path for May to be bypassed", 23-24/3) inadvertently exposes the corruption behind the ongoing effort to stop Britain from leaving the EU. “We're at a critical moment in the construction of Europe." It needs to be asked: "Who is that 'we'?" It is certainly not the 52% of Britons who voted in the 2016 referendum to leave. Clearly there are powerful interests, both inside and outside the UK, determined not to have their new nation-building jeopardised. French President Emmanuel Macron, riding this wave, arrogantly states that "the British politicians are incapable of putting in place what their people have demanded." No, not incapable, but, so far, as a group in the House of Commons, perversely unwilling. The House should change direction and vote for a no-deal exit. British liberties hang in the balance. Present pain but long-term gain.
