On being duplicitous and cowardly, Tories, that is!
“Dear Conservative Parliamentarians from Bob Perry
“Your actions this week will have far reaching implications for the United Kingdom for generations to come. Have any of you seriously thought about what you have done to this once great nation of ours? Do you really believe that by turning the UK into a vassal state of the corrupt European Union that you are serving your country?
“Your duplicitous and cowardly behaviour in denying the will of 17.4 million voters who took the brave decision leave to the EU will not go unpunished. Collectively you have sounded the death knell for democracy in this country as we know it. Have you considered the implications this will have for you at the ballot box? Do you honestly believe that you will be forgiven for your betrayal? If so, it shows how entirely out of touch you are with the British people.
“Whenever the next election comes – and we suspect it will be sooner rather than later – the electorate will seize the opportunity to vent their wrath upon you. Those of you who voted in the House of Commons to deny the result of the last referendum will almost certainly lose your seats and you will have no one to blame but yourselves.
“It is not too late to redeem yourselves and to save not only your seats but your reputations. You need to reverse the disastrous decision you took to betray the electorate. All it will take is for one of you to table a motion to put leaving on WTO terms back on the table and for the rest of you to have the backbone to vote it through.
“You may dismiss us as those stupid Brexiteers who didn’t know what they were voting for, but we assure you that we absolutely did, and we would do it again in a heartbeat. Ignore us at your peril, but let us be clear: if you do, come the next general election, the great British people will deliver you the P45 you will so richly deserve.
“Regards, Cllr Bob Perry”
