Great-Britain has its own Trump, who likes to put the whole country at his hands and the European Union at his feet.
Boris Johnson is fully aware that he does not have the backing of the House of Commons. Like with so many other matters, he tried to ignore it. Because he felt it would not be so easy to fool those chosen people in parliament, he could only think of the best solution, to silencing it.
He very well knows that if the elected representatives are not present, they are powerless. Where there should be a frenzy of action, there will be inactivity. Where there should be furious opposition, there will be incapacity of response. Where there should be fierce democratic debate, there will be silence.
As the one he likes to follow as his example, his great mouth needed an extra tool of bandage, to silence possible opponents. And what other good way to get rid of those who could get with better plans than yours, than making sure they can not speak nor propose anything better.
Knowing very well about the pro-forma position of the queen, he gave her no choice, to fulfil the duty she would be expected to fulfil. Listening to the prime minister and going into his request. As such, the Queen gave her assent for the prorogation.
Not for the first time, in a few months time, Democracy has failed in the United Kingdom.
Johnson has no scruples when it comes to the damage he is doing his utmost to inflict upon British and European citizens, but he’s not the only guilty one. The opposition parties have dragged their heels in setting aside their party political interests.
Leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn has taken three years to propose cross-party action (spearheaded, naturally, by himself). Jo Swinson, leader of the centrist Liberal Democrats, has thrown up a tantrum about working with Corbyn. Caroline Lucas, co-leader of the Greens, proposed a working group composed entirely of women.
From the continent we have the impression those puppet-players of the U.K. Parliament are seriously not aware of the terrible position they can bring all the businesses and British people in. It seriously looks like they do not understand that Great-Britain and Europe are in crisis. They also seem not to be fully aware that there shall be the economical impact, but also the danger of Scotland, Ireland, Shetland and Wales going to step out of Great-Britain, making an end to that great empire!
The British should realise that 31 October won’t wait for them to stop bickering over who you will or won’t work with or hang around until they get organised.
Luckily we can see British people with more common sens, coming on the streets, showing they do not agree with this coup d’état by Borish Johnson, wo did not receive his position by a democratic election.
The British MPs better should show their seriousness and love for their country, by tackling this crisis with full earnest sincerity Those who have an interest in protecting the British society, economy, security and peace – should better join hands and shut themselves in a room, for not coming out of it, until they agree on a way to work as a united front against the imposter in Number 10.
The clock is ticking
We are at a historic turning point, two months from a precipice. It is already unbelievable that with this crisis and disastrous no deal Brexit, the Parliament could have a summer recess.
To suspend Parliament from 9 September until 14 October, more than half of the time there is left, seems ridiculous and bringing the country its people and economy in danger.
Have they forgotten the words of Donald Tusk:
“Do not waste this time,”
advising the British politici to followthe last extension of Article 50.
At the moment we are facing a Drowning Street at Downing Street.
Night has fallen over the ongoing protests in London, which gathered at short notice for impassioned speeches from journalists and activists, blocking great swathes of streets in Westminster and Whitehall. The true meaning of “Take Back Control” has finally come to light: take it from the people, take it from their representatives – give it to the government, give it to the elites.
This weekend, there will be mass demonstrations. People may not stay mumbling or staying silent at home. By now they should have come to see how populist rightwing politicians have fooled them and have caught them in the trap of the dictatorial right.
Johnson may succeed in silencing Parliament, but let the British people show their government that he shall not be able to kill the democratic process and will not silence the people!
