The Culture Of Deceit

 For the record, Rosie Cooper MP voted last night for Amendment 7 to Clause 9 of the European Union (Withdrawal Bill) to require the final Brexit deal with the EU to be approved by statute passed by Parliament.

Yesterday I heard a Labour MP say “the country should trust Parliament to be mature and sensible”. Another, a Tory, claimed Eurosceptics were “fixated on getting us out” and even compared himself to Sir Winston Churchill by stating that “A good party man…will put his country before his party”! The Tory then chose to ignore the national referendum which was a decision by the people.

Later, a “malcontent Tory” tweeted that “Parliament took control of the EU withdrawal process”. Did Parliament ever NOT have control over the EU withdrawal by virtue of the decision of the Supreme Court? So why the need for this amendment?

The culture of deceit is a simple matter, that remainers all insist they are fully behind Brexit but that this amendment was all about parliamentary scrutiny. Why then is there such glee from the EU following the vote, as shown by the unelected EU official above?

I am a pensioner. I was a strong supporter of the rights of elderly and disabled residents of West Lancashire to receive equal treatment from the old Tory WLBC that unfortunately did not agree, leading to the social exclusion of some immobile disabled residents. My personal suggestion of honouring the County Regiment led to us having probably the proudest day ever in West Lancashire, with the help of Cllr Adrian Owens who wrote "You will be pleased to learn that this evening the motion passed unanimously. Colonel Amlot from the Regiment was accorded a standing ovation and we look forward to a parade and march through Ormskirk next year. Thank you". After the Parade I wrote to Cllr Owens "I was reading through the emails we exchanged after I made the suggestion to honour our County Regiment. As you said today, we got there in the end, and what an end? This celebration of our Regiment was quite simply, as my original mail said, the greatest honour of all. To see all these young people who risk their lives for us was so moving. Little did I know what Council could do and how our residents would react to it all. Well, we should all be so proud of this great day. I know I am".
