|Editorial commentary; Take a few steps outside the Westminster Bubble|
Is it too late to start making a Brexit decision based on reality rather than biased emotions on both sides?
It’s an ‘exciting’ time for those working in the Westminster Bubble, as never before have so many politicians (including those in the unelected HoL) been asked to comment so frequently on a single issue (often thus demonstrating their bias as well as ignorance of the basic facts) by so many journalists (often just interviewing each other).
One question that none of the Mainstream Media / Remainers has asked / answered is; If the Referendum was ‘lost’ because us ‘worthless & ignorant ‘oldies’ voted for Brexit (Editor: Yes I qualify for that age group) , why is it that the even older HoL members have mostly subsequently voted against the ‘people’s will’ as expressed in the 2016 referendum?
Having listened to their debates it cannot be for their ‘expert knowledge’ (which often ignores the facts), but it does reinforce the feeling that the political classes just want to ‘pat us voters on the head, and tell us to let them decide everything as they know best (all expenses paid)’.
Also if the BBC is supposed to be un-biased, why does it keep talking about a ‘cliff-edged’ No Deal, when in fact that delivers what the Brexit majority want and with nowhere near the ‘terrifying outcomes’ they are forecasting – especially in the medium/long term?
It may not be headline ‘end of the world’ grabbing news, but the actual realities of WTO rules trading (which most of the world trade is done under) can and are being prepared for. One writes as someone who played a lead role in preparing London for the Y2K millennium bug forecasted ‘catastrophe’.In addition, take a look at Section 6 of B4B: No Deal Is No Nightmare: Facts About EU Trade After Brexit to see how the Northern Ireland issue is totally an EU negotiation ploy. Also read B4B: A Letter to Remainers by Dr Graham Gudgin to ‘hear from somebody who was there’ as former special advisor to the First Minister in Northern Ireland that the ‘Good Friday Agreement (GFA) included no mention of borders’.
