The culture of deceit is now a way of life
“There are some in this country who fear that in going into Europe we shall in some way sacrifice independence and sovereignty. These fears, I need hardly say, are completely unjustified”. Prime Minister Edward Heath, television broadcast on Britain’s entry into the Common Market, January 1973
Page 23, Labour Party 2017 manifesto “NEGOTIATING BREXIT”. Labour accepts the referendum result and a Labour government will put the national interest first. We will prioritise jobs and living standards, build a close new relationship with the EU, protect workers’ rights and environmental standards, provide certainty to EU nationals and give a meaningful role to Parliament throughout negotiations.
19 November 2019 Mr Corbyn “I want to bring people together, therefore there will be a referendum, in which that decision will be made by the British people, and our government will abide by that decision”…[but not the 2016 referendum decision!]
And as for the idea of holding a second referendum to “bring people together”, holding another referendum which the overwhelming majority of Labour MPs have demanded as a means of reversing the outcome for the 2016 referendum vote is a recipe for doing exactly the opposite.
“This country quite voluntarily surrendered the once seemingly immortal concept of the sovereignty of parliament and legislative freedom by membership of the European Union. As a once sovereign power, we have said we want to be bound by Community law”. Judge Bruce Morgan, judgement in Sunderland metrication case April 9, 2001.
He meant the liar Edward Heath quite voluntarily surrendered our sovereign powers to be bound by Community law. I didn’t. Did you?
