Britain is drifting without direction and government, and unpredictability is a drag on the economy. A stupidly named #PeoplesVote does nothing to remove uncertainty - there’s every chance people (rightly) vote to Leave again, while a narrow Remain result entrenches division.
Yet so many glib Continuity Remainers, especially the @LibDems and Labour centrists, present another referendum as some kind of panacea. They delude themselves that the result would be different than 2016, and that the drivers of Brexit would magically disappear if so.
I guarantee that this will not be the case. If some cosy consortium of the @LibDems, Labour Remainers, nationalist parties and unloved ex prime ministers manages to thwart the clear promise that the 2016 referendum would be respected, Brexiteers won’t take it lying down.
I for one will do everything in my power to salt the earth for such a Coalition of Losers Government, rejecting any of their pathetic attempts at outreach, obstructing their policy agenda and making their every moment in government a misery. That’s what their example taught me.
The mechanics of Brexit are complicated but the moral underpinning is not. We were given a referendum, and even the one-sided government propaganda promised that the result would be implemented regardless of who won. You can’t break that promise and not expect justified blowback.
