• Britanniae: Et cadere declines.


    Above, Roman Britain (Britanniae) circa 410AD. NB: This organ does not use the politically correct BCE/CE terminology.

    Roman Britain was a success story. Following their conquest, the Roman Empire established (over time) a successful stable society that was culturally and economically more advanced on what had been before. Furthermore, unlike the rebellious Jewish provinces the threat was not from internal rebellion and dissent but external – hence the northern walls.

    Following the Fall of Rome, the Roman province of Britanniae had to defend itself from threats and it failed. The Britons had looked to Rome for leadership and direction. Faced with the challenge of governing themselves, they failed and over time the “barbarians” took over.

    Circa fifteen hundred years later, on New Year’s Day, Monday 1st January 1973 the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland surrendered itself once again to a supreme authority outside it’s borders after the Arch-Traitor Heath had earlier signed the Treaty of Rome.

    Like the earlier takeover, Roman authority was not immediately established but the reach of that authority grew over time. As of today, the UK has been governed by the EC/EEC/EU for 46 years, 2 months and 28 days. This in contradiction of the ancient British Constitution. Following the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, the European Union of the Cities and the Regions has it’s own legal personality and it’s laws take precedence over the laws of the member states. In other words, the Supreme Court of the UK is not the supreme authority. The supreme authority is the European Committee of Juggling!

    Notwithstanding the constitutional outrage, European rule in the province of the UK has been successful. Unlike other provinces, EU Regulations and Directives are punctiliously followed and enforced. Unlike other provinces, “tribute” is rendered in full and promptly. Furthermore, the UK is not a small province such as Slovenia but one of the largest. Therefore it is a very important province and one the EU wants to keep!

    The EU wants to avoid a No Deal Brexit. Observing the chaos so well described and commented upon by Doctor North (http://eureferendum.com/blogview.aspx?blogno=87189), some will have concluded (correctly) that during the 46 years, 2 months and 28 days of membership the deeply tribal confrontational political system in the UK has atrophied to the extent that the political class is now incapable of governing the country as a fully independent state and that the aforesaid political class are only competent to follow (and enforce) the edicts handed down from Brussels.

    This was demonstrated during the EU referendum campaign when the Leave camp peddled bullshit and had no workable plan to “Brexit!” And the Remain camp were no better! Since that time the political elite in the UK has demonstrated beyond peradventure that they are incapable of governing a sovereign independent nation state! They are only good for following orders! Insofar as the internal governance of the country is concerned, this authority comes from Brussels. Insofar as the external governance of the country is concerned, this authority comes from Washington DC.

    This is how far this formerly sovereign land has declined!

    IF a No Deal Brexit takes place, democracy is at threat.

    IF Brexit on Madame’s Withdrawal Agreement and the subsequent negotiations don’t proceed very well, we will see a decline in the economy and an increase in support for extreme politics.
    IF Article 50 is revoked by use of the Royal Prerogative, we will NOT see a decline in the economy, but we WILL see a significant increase in support for extreme politics.

    IF Article 50 is revoked following a Confirmatory Vote, aka a Second Referendum, aka a Peoples Vote, we will NOT see a decline in the economy, we will NOT see a significant increase in support for extreme politics, but we WILL see a marked decline in turnouts at election time.

    Of the above four options, #4 is the least worst. The only good option (which is not cited above) is a competent negotiation following Madame’s Withdrawal Agreement along the lines of Flexcit.

    This organ has said all along that Flexcit is the ONLY doable, practical Brexit strategy.
