As I write these words I'm getting ready to go to a Christmas party hosted by a friend of my father's who is also his former boss. Since my dad retired a few years ago they have stayed in touch. This man, I'll call him "Gerald", is also one of
most hardline remoaners. He has even written articles for the local press
saying that the United Kingdom
should simply stay in the European Union... so there! I detail in the
background articles below exactly what I think of that attitude. Don't worry; I
won't be arrested for murder at the party. I'll be perfectly civil to Gerald (somehow
that sounds a good name for a remoaner) and will not get into an argument with
him. In fact unless he asks me for my opinion I won't even give it. The fact
that I do not know him on Facebook makes me doubly sure we will not fall out.
I cannot make that same promise for others however. Luckily they live out of my way, north of the border. The Scottish Court of Sessions, the equivalent of
and Wales' High
Court of Justice, is to hear a case that might allow the UK
to abort the Article 50 process without permission from the European Commission.
The case was brought by a group of seven pro-EU politicians from four different
parties. I'm sorry to say that the lawsuit has been easily crowdfunded. This
less-than-magnificent seven are: Christine Jardine, a Liberal Democrat
Westminster MP for an Edinburgh
constituency. Joanna Cherry, also a member of the House of Commons, for the
Scottish National Party. David Martin, a Labour member of the European
Parliament. Catherine Stihler, another Scottish Labour MEP. Andy Wightman, a
member of the Scottish Parliament for the Green Party. Ross Greer (No relation
to Dr Steven), another Green MEP. And Alyn Smith, who sits at Brussels
for the SNP. The case is based on the definition of Article 50 and who has jurisdiction
over its process. We must take into account that this is uncharted legal
territory. Brexit is only the second occasion the article has ever been invoked
and that the previous time it was for Greenland; which
is in North America, only has a population of fifty
thousand people and is a colony of Denmark.
If the case in Scotland
is successful then it will be referred to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg
and this could possibly amend Article 50 allowing the UK
to reverse the process and retain its position as an EU member state. Source: https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/legal-action-over-whether-the-uk-can-reverse-brexit-gets-go-ahead/ar-BBHabhq?li=BBoPWjQ.
I urge all the constituents of the above representatives to oust them at the
first opportunity. Vote for the Raving Loonies if you have to! Just kick their
arrogant, dictatorial bottoms out into the street at the next election. These
bureaucrats have once again displayed their contempt for the British people,
something that they have always felt but used to hide. As I predicted, the
Leave referendum of June 2016 is being portrayed in retrospect as nothing more
than an interim opinion poll. One of the reasons I am covering this subject on
HPANWO Voice, HPANWO Radio and HPANWO TV is to prevent people like these
throwing the truth about the referendum down the Memory Hole. The battle is far
from over. We will not be able to relax until we are literally out of the EU in
every way. The moment we let our guard down, the remoaners always pounce!
