A general election is the way forward to break the deadlock in Parliament, not a second referendum.
The Remainers in Parliament have lost all track of reality if they believe that another referendum will solve anything and hopefully European heads of state will realise this.
However, if Johnson does request an extension, there is a good chance that the European Union will reject it.
Hilary Benn, the author of this disgusting piece of legislation, realised that the French are likely to veto. Therefore, he added an absurd clause stating that the Prime Minister must accept ANY length of time that the EU proposes.
Emmanuel Macron (President of France) was right
The last time the UK asked for an extension to January 2020, Macron argued that the UK Parliament would waste all of that time arguing. That’s why the EU gave us an extension until October 31st, 2019.
So, Macron (whatever you think of him) did at least save us from another three months of pointless circular arguments.
The European Union wants us to remain in the EU.
However, the sticking point for the EU would be that for us to remain, there would need to be another general election.
Because Leave voters are spread around the country, the Remain parties are likely to lose a general election. That’s why Remainers don’t want a general election!
So, the ‘first past the post’ election system does have its advantages!
A general election, not a second referendum, is the way forward.
At the moment, we have a paralysed Parliament, especially with an out-of-control Speaker.
Remainers want a second referendum.
If a second referendum produced another Leave result, then the Remainers would still not accept the result.
If a second referendum produced a Remain result, then the government would still be there.
A general election is the way forward to break the deadlock in Parliament.
The British National Party is the original Brexit Party. We’ve been warning about the dangers of European political union since 1982.
We say that the nations of Europe should be free to trade and cooperate whenever it is mutually beneficial without being forced into a straightjacket of political and economic unification – which is neither desirable, ultimately practically unfeasible and which is guaranteed to create conflict rather than avoid it.
