• Brexit: Plan B.


    Since Madame appears to have no Plan B, we publish one!

    The Brexit news is dominated today by the news that Madame has written a letter to President Tusk requesting an A50 extension to 30th June 2019.
    GOTO: Madame’s letter.
    Madame already knows that the date she has requested is unacceptable to the EU and IF they grant an extension, it will be substantially longer. Long enough to conduct a second referendum without having to suspend the provisions of the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000 (c. 41).

    It is likely – but not certain – the EU27 will extend A50.

    IF an extension is granted and the Remainers and Remaniacs get their way and a “Confirmatory Vote” aka a “People’s Vote” aka a second referendum is held which is a binary choice between Madame’s Deal – which is widely regarded by many as BRINO (BRexit In Name Only) – and Revoke Article 50, then many people will feel that their vote will have been ignored and Brexit will have been betrayed.

    This is eloquently expounded by blogger Michael Crowley.

    WHATEVER one’s views on Brexit, the country is faced with THREE choices. They are:

    #1: Implement Madame’s deal and leave the EU on the agreed terms.

    #2: Revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU.

    #3: Do not implement Madame’s deal, do not revoke Article 50 BUT seek an extension of Article 50 of TWO YEARS during which a Brexit along the lines of Flexcit (http://www.eureferendum.com/documents/flexcit.pdf) as authored by Dr. North and others is proposed.

    NB: Whilst #3 is conditional upon the EU accepting this request, it is the firm opinion of the British Gazette that the EU would agree because at LONG LAST HMG will have come up with a practical and “do-able” Brexit plan!

    The British Gazette is firmly of the opinion that the British People should choose between the THREE options.

    This means that the British Gazette supports a second referendum but on the basis that the second ballot (aka two-round) system be used.
    GOTO: https://www.electoral-reform.org.uk/voting-systems/types-of-voting-system/two-round-system/
    The three choices should be put to the voters in the first round and if no choice achieves 50% + 1 vote or more, then the top two choices go through to a run-off vote a week later.

    The British Gazette would unreservedly condemn a “Confirmatory Vote” whereby the choice is between remaining in the EU and Brexiting under the terms of Madame’s deal.
    The FACT is that Madame’s deal effectively reduces the UK to the status of a dependent territory of the EU! NO British Prime Minister could recommend this to Parliament!
    That would not only be a betrayal of the 17.4 million who vote for Brexit but the millions who did not. This is because the millions of Britons who in two world wars gave their tomorrows for our today would not only expect but would demand a proper democratic choice!
