Democracy – I don’t think so.

This is a piece by Bryan Gould, previously a Shadow Cabinet Minister and Labour MP. In it he warns us, much more eloquently and succinctly than I, of the dangers that our democracy faces.

  1. J & D > Good man, that Bryan Gould – haven’t seen his name for years. He’s right. We voted remain, and still would prefer to do so, but for some time we’ve accepted that Brexit could ultimately work out for the best, if there’s a will there’s a way. We completely agree – and have done so since Theresa May’s deal first fell foul of Parliament, that if we aren’t genuinely prepared to embrace a no-deal brexit, then we’d really be better not leaving at all. But that latter is no longer a democratic option : we have to leave, the sooner the better (the continued procrastination is extremely damaging to our micro-businesses – and to the nation as a whole) and now we’re quite prepared to face a no-deal brexit because it is the only way to get the arrogant, complacent EU (and that’s from two remainers!) to deal genuinely and honestly with us.

    1. Yes, we have boxed ourselves into a corner from both the leave and remain avenues. Hopefully something, anything, will give and we will see movement and a glimmer of hope.
