TIDBITS: RECONSIDERING THE BREXIT VOTE

TIDBITS: RECONSIDERING THE BREXIT VOTE

In the wake of last Thursday's News and Views from the Nefarium, many people kindly sent more information about the British high court's decision, and among them, Mr. J.P. sent this helpful bit of information, which to my mind argues a somewhat different case than what I advanced in the News and Views, though I did point out that in my opinion some of the high court's opinion was based in sound law and, you'll recall, that my argument was concentrated on the fact an act of parliament would be required, which was conflated with demands from Labour that Prime Minister May present her negotiating stance. Here's the information for your consideration:

R (Miller) -V- Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union

  1. It’s not problem, reaction, solution it’s the great game played by overgrown children. They have always detested adulthood and real responsibility Peter Pans to the core.

    The illusion of self-governance has become an expense they are more & more willing to drop the curtain on; as the reality of servitude & death anxiously await their entrances on the global stage – for even the blind to see.
    It is then Hanna Arendt’s viewpoint will light the stage afire, where those puppet masters will be as safe as any man in his coffin – for then….
    The fight against evil
    will become the ultimate affirmation of life itself.

      …not the few of today; but the multitudes of tomorrow.

      [seems I got a serious case of righteousness when I think of TTP/TTIP and all it’s personhood sisters, brothers, cousins, mothers & fathers]

      …my qualifying reply as sent away; hopefully not long, as it is rather mild. Sometimes, though, I’m glad my comments are sent away; as I wonder how I ever came to write whatever the hell it was..

      1. Robert, Max Keiser should be made Trump’s choice to lead the SEC — or to dismantle the Fed. But, as I’ve just read Trump today was pulled off the stage by his Secret Service in Nevada, I doubt he’ll get to his appointments before the elite get to him.)

  3. There is a chance that many theoretically pro-EU MPs will not risk coming out too blatantly as wanting to overturn the referendum result. Whatever the legal niceties, thus has been the politically most significant vote of the post-war UK, considering that the electoral system results in there being a party in control that has received nothing like a majority of the numerical votes. And people are noticing.

  4. I knew they werent going to let Britain off that easily. As soon as the vote went through I saw this – http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-can-still-be-blocked-say-constitutional-lawyers-eu-referendum-not-binding-a7107526.html
    Democracy at work. Europe serving the People…. steaming hot on a platter.

    Which is basically what happened with Wallonie as well. Wallonie said non, because. “Parmi les points litigieux : la libéralisation de tous les biens et services qui ne seraient pas explicitement cités dans le Traité, un encadrement insuffisant concernant les transactions financières, des cours de juridiction privées pour régler les conflits commerciaux. ”
    So there you have , liberalisation of all goods and services that arent arent specically cited in the Treaty. No way to protect soveireign countries from being attacked in court by multi nationals.. (I m thinking Monsanto now being able to sue the gouvernement if they refuse to let them grow OGMs. And gouvernments not being able to protect themselves..

    Finally they agreed to sign because : ‘ M. Magnette a ainsi estimé avoir obtenu des « clarifications essentielles » en matière de « sauvegarde agricole » et de « protection des services publics ».

    Saving OUR agriculture… Protecting public services.. (from being sued by Monsanto?)

    This CETA agreement apparently had tons of indexes and back notes that they pushed through. The damn thing is unreadable.

    Anyway.. Europe. Democracy? Doesnt work. Dictatorship. Thats the only effecient form of gouvernment. Seemed to keep the middle east in check for some time.

  5. It’s worth noting that Article 50 is not a requirement for the UK to leave the EU. In legal terms all that is needed is for parliament to revoke the 1972 European Communities Act which is the British statute allowing EU law to take precedence. The media focus on Article 50 distracts from the fact that parliament is still sovereign over EU. Article 50 is a red herring.

    1. Well said. All this social division is being engineered to bring about the usual problem, reaction, solution.
