Brexiteers almost lost everything — now they have almost won everything

It is hard to underestimate how close this country came to throwing away the 2016 referendum result. As deadline after deadline was missed, those who lost the referendum received more and more concessions. From European Court of Justice oversight to commitments to remain chained to the EU’s failed economic model – a virtual colony trapped within the Brussels regulatory orbit. On this side of the Channel, Brexiteers were confronted daily by the scheming of a thoroughly rotten Parliament abetted by a partisan speaker and activist legal establishment.

It is from this context that we must view today.

Think tank says country might face Brexit ‚in name only‘ following Cummings‘ departure from Number 10

He continued: „Dom Cummings‘ presence at the centre of the government’s policy programme gave Brexiteers confidence that Brexit would take place in a meaningful way.“

Instead, he warned that the loss „makes post-Brexit Britain more likely to be very similar to a Britain inside the EU, and possibly worse“.

I thought @Fox_Claire said it right: we Brexiteers would all be delighted if Boris Johnson gave us Brexit, as we would’ve been if Theresa May (or Jeremy Corbyn) gave us Brexit. But with the Tories we’ve already been let down once so we are going to keep on pushing till we get it.

Today was meant to be independence day. Now it is the day we were betrayed. Join the Brexiteer rally in Parliament Square from 4pm.

Why the PM can dare to dream that her Brexit deal will pass

Can the prime minister dare to dream that her Brexit deal will pass – perhaps as soon as next week?

It is striking how Brexiters from the ERG group are lining up to tell me how reasonable they are trying to be.

Jeremy Corbyn, die Geheimwaffe der Brexiteers

Corbyn (69) hat sich sein Weltbild aber in den 1960er- und 1970er-Jahren zurechtgelegt. Damals wie heute gilt Brüssel bei der harten Linken als „Europa der Bosse“. Der lebenslange Aktivist ohne Uni-Abschluss und Berufsausbildung nennt sich stolz einen Internationalisten. –

Brexiteers Have Called A Christmas Truce With Theresa May. Here’s Why.

A number of Leave MPs are indicating they could climb down on their opposition to the withdrawal deal. They are susceptible to arguments by the PM that hers is the hardest form of Brexit they are likely to get, and that voting down her deal risks no Brexit at all.

This group first made its presence felt on Monday in the Commons where several Tory MPs who previously rejected the withdrawal agreement suggested they could vote for it in January.

France’s actions today over future fishing rights and our exit from the backstop demonstrates precisely how vulnerable we would be once signed up to the disastrous Withdrawal Agreement. Not in my name.

Sadly I am coming to the same conclusion. The very reason many voted to Leave is being demonstrated. People want to know their voice and vote matters. Not be told the political elite know better. Not delivering a true Brexit will do huge and lasting damage to our democracy.

ALL MOUTH AND NO TROUSERS‘: Brexiteer Nadine Dorries blames scared Tory MEN for failed coup against Theresa May – but claims they only need two more letters

„I can tell you this – it certainly isn’t for all the women in the ERG – all the women have put their letters in.“

She speculated that there were around 46 letters of no confidence in, two shy of the number needed to force a vote in Mrs May’s leadership, and added: „I know of key people holding their letters back.“

We are joining forces with small pro-#Brexit groups across the UK to take anti democratic MPs to task. In a firm but respectful way. Support @Leavers_Britain & stand with us.

Leavephobia – the new racism: Hating Brexiteers has become the most acceptable prejudice of our time.

You can say anything you like about the dim, teeming millions who voted Leave, and about the evil demagogues who made us do it, because of course we’re so fantastically stupid that we cannot think for ourselves. You can call them ‘low-information’. You can say they think with their ‘lizard brains’, as the New Statesman did. Slimy sub-humans! You can say they emerged from the ‘sewers’ (Nick Cohen) and that they will hopefully die soon (Ian McEwan). You can call them thick, ignorant, racist, deluded, fat (one study says Leave voters were of course higher in areas with high levels of obesity. Corpulent plebs.)

Funny that, it’s almost as if right wing and left wing leavers want the same thing – to LEAVE the EU, not a Potemkin Brexit that is in fact colony status…

20.11.2018 - 08:44 [ Patrick O'Flynn ‏/ Twitter ]

Mark my words – the only way the EU will ever let us out of this backstop is if we agree to rejoin. May is guilty of the most horrific and cynical betrayal of the British people. Far worse than Blair on Iraq.

Brexiteers keep up pressure on PM’s leadership and ’serfdom‘ Brexit deal

Ms Dorries added: „MPs will think to themselves, ‚If I vote to keep the prime minister in place she’s going to be there for the next 12 months when anything could happen, is that what I want?‘ And I think most MPs will vote ’no‘.“

She defended her description of the Brexit deal as leaving the UK as „slaves“ to the EU.

„I would call us a vassal state, an empty state, I’d call it serfdom, it’s appalling,“ Ms Dorries said.

Tory MP @ABridgen tells me May’s deal is: „Probably the worst deal since Olaf the Terrible ordered 1000 Viking helmets with the horns on the inside.“

He also calls on his Brexiteer Cabinet colleagues to resign.

We asked a Merseyside Labour MP why he voted to help Theresa May stay in power

„I voted last night knowing that two thirds of Labour constituencies in the country voted to leave.

„One reason for that was that people in Westminster and Whitehall and in elite groups don’t wish to listen to them.

„I wanted to make sure that those two thirds of Labour constituencies had a voice.“

The veteran MP has angered some of his Merseyside Labour colleagues after also voting to help hard-line Tories like Jacob Rees Mogg score a decisive victory preventing the UK from joining the EU’s VAT regime.

‚It’s RECKLESS‘ Brexit backstop will turn Northern Ireland into EU ‚PROTECTORATE‘

NORTHERN Ireland would become a “protectorate” of an unaccountable EU if the backstop was introduced, the leader of the Ulster Unionist Party (UUP) has warned. Robin Swann said unionists who voted Remain did not do so because they wanted to leave the UK and it was “dishonest and deceitful” to portray them as such.

Leading Brexiter tries to kill Northern Ireland backstop

Baker is forcing the prime minister to choose between the integrity of the UK and a negotiated Brexit.

This is her worst nightmare.

What the leading Brexiter, Baker – who organises the European Research Group of Tory MPs – is doing more precisely is making it impossible for the backstop to be introduced without the approval of the Northern Ireland Assembly.

EU WHAT? Brexit deal latest – Theresa May says Britain could stay tied to EU for another year in last-ditch bid to cut deal at Brussels summit

The PM told European leaders she would consider an extension to the Brexit transition period, but Brexiteers reacted immediately with fury

Michael Fabricant reveals REAL reason Brussels is playing hard ball over Brexit

The Tory backbencher said the UK’s departure has left the bloc fighting for “sheer survival” with the very future of the European project at stake.

He said granting Britain any special exceptions could “open Pandora’s Box” and embolden disgruntled member states like Hungary and Poland to make similar demands.

THERESA May risked infuriating Tory Brexiteers this evening by opening talks with the EU on extending Britain’s transition out of the bloc by at least another year.
