Do your put first your own personal interests or those of your nation?

Theresa May went down to a historic defeat on her Brexit bill last night, the worst suffered by an prime minister in living history. Today she is doing the right thing and stepping down to let a more competent leader for this juncture in British history take the reins and guide Great Britain to its best possible outcome.

Only kidding! Of course she’s not stepping down; since when do female leaders act in the best interests of their nation and not themselves?

It was the biggest Tory rebellion for decades – worse than anything faced by David Cameron, John Major or Margaret Thatcher. The revolt includes more than a third of her entire 317-strong party and was led by ringleaders Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg.

The EU now wants a new referendum which follows its business as usual line of getting a nation to keep voting until they achieve the correct result.

Vox Day has a few words to say on the subject as well:

The truth is that many Brits want a no-deal Brexit, because it will save them billions of dollars. It was the second-most popular option in a recent poll. No one gives a damn about clarity. The important thing is to get out of the EU and reclaim British sovereignty. Everything else can be sorted from there.

I have a British passport and I live in Europe but as I said in this week’s podcast I still support Brexit 100% even though it is personally going to inconvenience me; hell, it might even result in me having to move country again.

Britain absolutely has to leave so as to have any chance of dissolving the horrible political gelatinous cube that is the EU. Once other member nations see Britain leave with no deal and the immediate benefits to that nation, as opposed to the crying wolf the world is going to end predictions from the EU itself, then some nations, (I’m looking at you Italy, Poland, and Hungary), are going to want to get on the bandwagon as fast as they possibly can.

If that happens then it’s all over.

My personal circumstances are naught in the face of these glorious events. A mighty win for nationalism over globalism. And no, as many people erroneously believe, globalism is not the Right, it is the Left. Let me make it clear:

Globalism, (The prog left which includes major corporations which are already converged beyond all salvation) versus Nationalism, (patriots who want to keep their national identities which means a vast exercise of go back where you came from).

I may have to be one of those go back where you came from people, although I do fit in culturally and biologically very well with the Dutch.

Based on her past performances, Theresa May will not step down. Perhaps she will have to be hauled down. Perhaps carted off to the Tower of London in chains. There are many national traditions that should be brought back into practice, and that would be a great start.

    I don’t want just a no-deal Brexit, so Vox isn’t right about that …

    What I also want is for the Eurocrats currently residing in the UK to be deported in chains and regarded as persona non grata for life, along with every MEP, past and present, not of UK origin.

    As for Mizz May, she can begin serving her twenty-one year sentence for murdering the British way of life just as soon as anyone in government can discover the stones to have her escorted to one of HM Prisons fine establishments of incarceration. She can enjoy the company of all of the MEPs from the UK who supported this absurdist EU government.

    And when it comes to that great big trade bounty with the EU, all it would take to replace it and then some would be for the new PM to sign a deal with Donald Trump that would let the US and the UK become the world’s most influential trading bloc, so let’s just get that done.

    Perhaps once the Canadians escort Prime Minstrel Castro’s Bastard Kid to one of Canada’s fine establishments of incarceration that they could do what it takes to join up as well, but that would require political fortitude the Canadians haven’t seen since the mid-1960s.

    As for Mexico, the present plans to Build A Wall seem reasonable enough, although I also believe that the Mexicans should pay for it since they’ve allowed this to become a problem in the first place.

    Not that any of this will really help the Americans, mind you, because there’s too much in the way of existential and institutional rot that’s set in, but it would be marvellous to watch …

  2. What is actually happening, in my opinion, is that the anti-Brexit forces are stonewalling. There will not be a Brexit. Labor will take over and they will announce “negotiations”. Those negotiations will amount to nothing, take a couple more years, and allow the parties in power to just keep doing what they want. What is the average voter going to do? Every once in a while someone will write an article about how they were supposed to leave the EU and there will be speeches and editorials written about how we can’t be bound by past mistakes of a poorly thought out referendum, and “anyway, that was years ago, why are you still talking about it?”.

    • Labour leadership is pro-Brexit from what I can tell, even if the membership as a whole isn’t in Parliament. The problem with your extended negotiations is that would require one of two things to happen: 1) Parliament withdrawals invocation of Article 50 (I don’t see this happening) or 2) UK requests an extension of the withdrawal date which would require all 27 other members of the EU to agree (I don’t see all members giving the ok). If Corbyn takes down May the deal that comes next will be either a softer Brexit than the defeated deal (maybe something like how Norway is involved) or a hard Brexit. The only way I see the other member states agreeing to an extension is if whoever has power at the end of this week calls a new referendum and even in that case some EU heads of state have already stated they don’t support extending the deadline in that case.
