Brexit weekly briefing: Tory support plummets as Halloween cliff-edge looms #Politics #UKnews #Brexit #EuropeanUnion #Worldnews #TheresaMay #Conservatives #Europe #Foreignpolicy


 
The European election could give UK voters the voice Westminster has denied them

Strange to say, but the 2019 European parliament election could turn into one of the turning points of British political history.

You might think it is obvious, in a modern democracy, that voters should be engaged in shaping the most profound change in our country’s international relationships for more than 50 years. And that a single vote nearly three years ago does not provide a basis on which party politicians, most of whom voted against the policy anyway, can claim the right to exclude the voters from the process.

Both Labour and Conservatives rightly fear that the party duopoly will not survive a more honest engagement with voters

Neither party has any plausible claim to represent a broad-based national view ... show more

Both Labour and the Tories have put party management before the national interest

Brexit has prompted a recurring nightmare among an increasingly incredulous population: our very own Groundhog Day. Two weeks after the EU granted us an 11th-hour extension to prevent us crashing out without a deal, we are back in exactly the same position. The only thing standing between us and next Friday’s cliff edge is the hope the EU gifts us another extension. Meanwhile, the political turmoil engulfing the country worsens, the two main parties increasingly consumed by division and disarray and the political leadership we so desperately need to avert crisis as elusive as ever.

It’s hard to believe that the Westminster model of democracy was one prized by constitutional theorists for the stability it purportedly delivers. As the stakes get higher, our political system has proved less and less capable of delivering a resolution to the gridlock that has infected Westminster.

Labour has to choose between backing a referendum or striking a compromise on a softer Brexit... show more

In all seriousness, I suspect the gaslighting and the victory laps the cons and their Dumb Leader Spanky are taking will not age well. At all.

So far, all we have is Barr's summary of the report. Until it's released, I think the cons and the Orange Foolius himself should sit down and STFU.

Dan Dalton pressed to hold vote on time limit for removal of online terrorist content

A Conservative MEP has had his motives questioned by the EU’s executive after delaying a vote on Brussels legislation that would force online platforms to remove terrorist content.

In a letter from the European commission to Dan Dalton, leaked to the Guardian, the EU’s executive called on the Tory MEP to “rise to the occasion”, and lamented the “time lost”, with the current parliament set to have its last session in April. #EuropeanUnion #UKsecurityandcounter-terrorism #Europe #UKnews #Conservatives #Worldnews #Politics
