How About Tory Brexit Promises Then?!

Here’s an indicator of establishment double-talk that results in voter doublethink.

Right now we have a government that has reneged on its pledge to leave the EU on the 29th March, that no deal is better than a bad deal and that there would be no customs union but is now engaged in talks with the EU and the Labour Party to break just about all its pledges and manifesto promises.

Now, a while ago I signed up to a petition to change the general election voting system to one proportional representation (PR).

That petition has now just gone over the 50,000 signature milestone.

The government has responded that it will not be changing the election system for several reasons. I will leave out the bit in the response that talks about why the government thinks that First Past the Post (FPTP) is the best electoral thing since sliced bread and direct your attention to the first and last paragraphs. Here we go with the first paragraph:

“In line with the result of the Parliamentary Voting System referendum in 2011, the Government will not change the current First Past the Post voting system for elections to the House of Commons.”

And now for the third paragraph:

“In addition, it is worth noting that the Government’s manifesto committed, to keep the First Past the Post system for elections to the House of Commons, in line with the result of the Parliamentary Voting System referendum in 2011, in which the overwhelming majority voted to retain the current system. The Government does not, therefore, have plans to change the voting system at the present time.”

So, the government response to the petition calling for PR can be dismissed with talk of an eight year old referendum and promises made in their last 2017 election manifesto.

But statute law that says the UK will leave the EU on the 29th March in accordance with the largest exercise in democracy ever seen in the UK – the 2016 EU referendum – as well as recent 2017 manifesto promises from the two main parties for an election where well over 80% of the electorate voted for a party that promised to respect the will of the people as shown by that referendum result, can all just be ignored and even fought against tooth and nail by the government and the establishment.

What is a good promise for one must surely be a good promise for the other.

The establishment must believe that it has people in the UK so conditioned, that it can issue statements like this with impunity.

As people say, the book ‘1984’ by George Orwell was a warning, but some are using it as an instruction manual.

    P.R voting is vulnerable to abuse, jebuss this current lot can't even get yes no two options right P.R wouldn't stand a chance, instead of keep voting till you get the result you want you'll get keep counting till you get the result you want.

    If UKIP win in a general election, would they change our voting system to one of proportional representation? I do hope so.

    Seems referendums, manifestos and laws were more important back in 2011.

    I notice recently that Remain are doing their best to undermine the notion of parliamentary democracy with regards to the manifestos of the 2017 GE. "People didn't vote for those parts, people vote for a party for lots of reasons". Yet when it involved 25 years of pro EU activity, we got told by the same people that it was mandated by parliamentary democracy.

    It’s bad enough trying to get anything done with the two party first past the post system. With PR it would be nigh on impossible. If Brexit has proven anything it’s that MPs have no idea what the word governing means. PR would be like having Brexit going on for time immemorial. The electorate would be slashing their wrists before the next election came along.

    Proportional representational voting systems result in fudge and compromise. This satisfies nobody. The coalition under Cameron showed this completely. The half baked Liberal schemes had to be taken into account. Sorry Jeff I agree with everything you say, but not P.R.

    "No deal is better than a bad deal"….. Holds Talks with Corbyn to forge a BAD DEAL hybrid of the backstop treaty and Labours customs union

    May is a despicable wretch and Corbyn is appallingly weak. I despise them all and have come to realise that rather than just give up on them, I will vote whenever possible and it will be anything but LibLabCon. I'm sick of establishment lies, lies and more lies.

    Seems to me that the new order here in UK is that the many are overruled by the few. The vote no longer counts for anything as long as the traitors are in power. Vote for UKIP!!!

    What do Brits think of Nigel Farage? Will he split the vote? Will Britain go UKIP?

    I keep writing to my MP and Mrs May. I am livid with these traitors.

    My latest letter connected with this video:

    I write once again, because I am perplexed by the selective application of our democracy. This leads me to believe that we now live in a dictatorship very much like that of Turkey ruled by Erdogan. 

    I have always believed that the first past the post voting system simply does not work and have always campaigned for a proportional representation system to be introduced, which I believe would be fairer. I was influenced in my younger years by my Grandfather who was a Lincolns Inn Barrister and editor of legal books.

    I recently signed a Government Petition for reforming the voting system. Enough people signed this to warrant it being discussed at Westminster; presumably by a committee in a broom cupboard.

    The Government responded with a fairly detailed answer and a perfectly valid justification for not considering changing the current first past the post voting system. Oh well, we can't always have our own way in a democracy! …and I accept that.

    The last paragraph in the Government statement reads,

    "In addition, it is worth noting that the Government’s manifesto committed, to keep the First Past the Post system for elections to the House of Commons, in line with the result of the Parliamentary Voting System referendum in 2011, in which the overwhelming majority voted to retain the current system. The Government does not, therefore, have plans to change the voting system at the present time".

    This is a perfectly worthy reason and one that those who believe in democracy must respect.

    So why has parliament held a Referendum, for remaining or withdrawing from the EU, where a majority of voters voted to withdraw from the EU and where at the subsequent general election, over 80% of those who voted, voted for the two main parties (Labour and Conservative) who's manifestos clearly committed to honouring the vote in line, with the result of the Referendum in 2016? 

    This is yet another example of democracy being destroyed. How would the Labour party like it, having won the next general election, if Thersa May decided that she could not accept the result and did everthing in her power to overturn it in order to save the voting public from themselves?

    I'm sorry to have to write again and I never felt the need to write in this manner before, but I am so angry that democracy has been destroyed. This is the thin edge of the wedge and if Parliament can get away with it once, it will want more; like a drug addiction. This is how dictatorships emerge.  Turkey was a secular democracy, now look at it, its a complete mess, decent people are leaving and Erdogan cannot accept the democratic election results and believes that the voting public are insane and need saving from themselves.

    Yours as ever!

    It might be worth mentioning that Robin Tillbrook's challenge to May's illegal behaviour starts tomorrow.
    There is a crowdfunding appeal,and it looks like he may need a little help.

    The current 2 major parties are playing school ground politics, and hopefully this will be shown in the next general election

    From an American citizen with deep English roots: GO BREXIT PARTY! May and her TORY Remainers have been bought off by the EU with money (40 billion pounds are at stake for the EU) or offers of a life time positions with the EU. Why else would they Sellout their country, ruin their own political party, and put the citizens of England into permanent slavery to the EU??? Follow the money.
    A great American patriot- PATRICK HENRY said in a famous speech in 1776, "GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH" A great American politician – Thomas Jefferson said in 1787 – "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants!" Both were of British families but felt the need to resist royal imposition of unjust laws and actions.

    Maybe the Brits should stop blaming the politicians for remaining a colony of the EU? The voters gave the politicians the power to do what they want…

    When will someone bang Nigel Farage’s and Gerard Batten’s heads together? Their
    alpha-male posturing and mutual mud-slinging is the last thing the 17.4m Leave
    voters need right now. We don’t want their bone-headed behaviour splitting the
    Brexit vote in any election. Whatever happened to Country before Party? We need
    them both in Brussels and Westminster

    Alas, youtube is a bubble. A bubble filled with people who have wised up in many cases… but go outside and talk to the sheeple who only watch TV and read newspapers for their 'news'. It is horrifying. Amazing how many people don't even know who Gerrard Batten is, think Farage is still leading UKIP and who want to vote Labour to keep the tories out – or visa versa. I fear the bar stewarts in parliament know what they are doing. The reach of main stream media still massively exceed that of the internet. Sure, the internet is a big part of many peoples lives, but mostly only for games and porn. Those watching Jeff Taylor, sadly, are in a tiny minority…

    Here are some winning policies for UKIP, equal and opposite of the policies that lost May her majority:
    Return pension age to 65 paid for by VAT (pensioners spend all their pension money, so state pension is Money in Circulation, keeping businesses going and coming back to the government in VAT)

    Free school dinners reinstated.
    Paid for by VAT: Parents pay a great deal in VAT providing their children with clothing, toys etc.

    "UK pays nearly a fifth of all VAT that goes into the EU budget"
