What was supposed to happen when the people voted to leave was all parties in parliament were supposed to come together in the national interest in a national coalition and carry out Brexit. This is what happened during both wars when the country faced mortal threat. Not once did the opposition try to bring down the government or the prime minister. Even during the Falklands war the Labour opposition and trade unions put aside disputes and supportered the country against a foreign entity. The unions even got the ships battle ready in record time to be put to sea etc. In a previous time the sufferegettes suspended their protests and joined in the nations war effort.

The is the first parliamentarians in our history have actively worked against the government, the people's democratic vote in collusion a foreign entity. There was even politicians travelling to Brussels to undermine the government. The culmination being members of the cabinet usurping Parliamentary law to push through a treaty against the people. This is the first time in our history this has happened whereby something akin to treason has taken place.

A Point of Order was made and upheld at the very end of this eight hour debate session.

That was, if anyone was still watching...

That all members who wish to speak and contribute during these debates must also be In Their Place at the conclusion of each session.

Hope they are held to that.

I'm all for the people taking control back from government... But if you go into these debates, at least as elected MPs, have the respect to stay and listen to your fellow MPs and the conclusion of the sessions.

So, we see yet again the EU manipulating government to send their people to “Think again so they get it right…”.

This "People's Tour" by Ms May and her cabal of Cabinet Ministers who have "taken the shilling" (or in the case of the connivance of Gove, who is culpable for May being PM and is just staying as a "Minister" so he is placed to run for PM when May is finally ousted), is the Plan B; to force no choice but to have another referendum once she has convinced the people to either overrule the government and accept this capitulation to the EU or to demand to stay in the EU.

Either way, the EU wins and real democracy will have been usurped; worn down by tedium, lies, and confusion of threats of complexity…

In business, many, if not most, joint ventures fail to keep a common cause. When they split it is accepted that the parties agree fair access to assets and IP created related to each contribution. The UK has played a leading part in many European collaborative projects, from Galileo to biotech etc.

All the benefits of collaboration can, and did before the EU, continue between the countries of Europe.

Moreover, the idea the UK must be removed from such projects in punishment for not toeing the line dictated by the EU State demonstrates why it is the EU Body that must be changed.

Brexit is not the issue here. Of course, the UK must continue to collaborate efficiently with its neighbour countries and markets across Europe.

And, by the way, logistics and efficient border crossing is a global business model, not just European, and certainly, there is no need for an addition to the current border in Ireland.

Indeed, many of Europe’s ports are not even owned by European companies. They are global businesses that invest and innovate in systems and processes to deliver ROCE by ensuring effective cross-border transport worldwide.

The challenge here is that the unaccountable EU State is not what the peoples of Europe need or want.

It has become a protectionist, bureaucratic, autocracy that serves only the global monopoly, not the welfare of society.

This is not just about trade or fiscal budgets. For example, the planned establishment of the EU Army would place such force in the hands of this “Bureaucracy”. Why? Any country shackled to the EU State should take note: Hungary, Italy?

When the EU issued a declaration that the freely elected Hungarian Government and its Prime Minister “…is not Hungary and does not represent its people”, and that the EU determines to sanction its rights as an EU member until the Government changes policy to EU demands: Then the true Colours of an EU State are manifest. It is as well that the EU Army is not yet at its hand…

And ask what control the people will have when the UN Global Compact on Migration is ratified.

The people of all the European countries must take back control from this “EU State” and realign the EU apparatus to serve the sovereign governments who are elected on the whim of their people.
