First we had the people didn't mean it - vote again.
- Then came the people were confused by a bus message - and its only advisory anyway.
- Then came the delay - long enough to let Remain agents launch a legal challenge to the govt - of a type that has always failed in the past when it would have inconvenienced the move to an EU super state - but suddenly works when it might stop the UK regaining its sovereignty and democratic government.
Then they said well they didn't mean the single market - we are staying in that right ? With the #ECJ still in charge and #EU law still supreme and large antiquates of tribute money paid to fund the EU.
Many videos of the Remain side warning that this is exactly what a Leave vote would mean and of Leave campaigners saying this was what was wanted meant this line was too embarrising to hold. Also the 70 % of Labour MPs who's constituencies voted Leave who would face a snap general election if they tried to implement this betrayal meant another approach was needed.
Step forward arch Remain campaigner Philip Hammond MP - who started asking for transition deals. Deals without, so #Remoaners schemed, end dates. ( Though the EU has been less than helpful here suggesting an specific end date would be required ).

So how to get round this ?
But they also want to change the subject from Brexit to 'has every negotiating aim been achieved?' - if not surely you need another referendum or perhaps they can pretend the whole thing is invalid.
Everything Labour ask for is only being requested as they think it will be useful to stop the UK regaining its sovereignty and to over turn the will of the British people.

There was a #Remoaner article by Alex Massie in the Spectator making the usual excuses for continuing the suspension of sovereignty and democracy that Remain are so committed to.
But he asks one good question - if Theresa May is this week so committed to sovereignty, independence and the restoration of democracy - then why wasn't she before June 23rd this year ?
Yes she kept a level of profile that would have made Agent Corbyn proud on the subject, but she sided with Cameron, Osborn, Goldman Sachs and the EU against the United Kingdom as a sovereign country.
Yet today we have the born again Kipper incarnation of Mrs May.
Don't get me wrong I put country before party and wish the current government the very best in the type of Brexit is seems to want to claim for the United Kingdom. But this doesn't mean there's no questions to be asked about the unexplained road to Damascus conversion of Mrs May.
Could it be that the thing that has scared the Conservatives most has been UKIP embedding into our political system ?
We know Mrs May plays her cards close to her chest. She has still managed to avoid the ideology tags. She certainly had David Cameron and George Osborne fooled as to her real views on how they ran government.
She has the capacity to avoid being understood ( I could put this a less generous way ).
She is clearly tactically astute, brave, patient, ruthless and bold.
But can those of us who campaigned for Brexit and to get our country back trust her any more than David Cameron could ? ( In fairness she didn't betray David Cameron - just clearly harbour some very strong criticisms of his approach and goals that she kept loyally quiet ).
Lets also remember that one of the key objectives of the Conservative party has been to try to cut of the oxygen supply from UKIP - might this be what is really going on just now ?
Without UKIP the establishment will be able to go back to the Euro Oligarchical stitch up they were so pleased with and which protected them from the people.
History already teaches us to treat Mrs May with caution.

A lot of the Remoaner whinging in the press, MSM and twitter is based on the assumption the British electorate got it wrong on June 23rd.
Well here's the thing - it wasn't a test to spot the right answer - it was a choice between different futures.
And the British people decided they wanted to live in a sovereign independent democratic country and hence voted for Brexit.
They could have decided to stick with the EU project as it moves on towards eventual super state union, but they didn't want that.
The electorate didn't get it wrong - they gave a clear instruction to their government and parliament - and instruction that government and parliament asked them to give.
Indeed David Cameron could not have been clearer that the result would be enacted ( he promised the very next day ) and I didn't hear any of the #Remoaner voices that now speak up saying this wouldn't be the case.
This is a matter of good faith. It is a matter of whether we live in a democracy or not.
We said we wanted Brexit - get on with it.
It would be a very serious mistake to do anything else.

This article in the Wall Street Journal tells a truly shocking story. Its not one the BBC would like tyou to think about as it doesn't fir their narrative, but in human temrs its terrible.
Read it and think about the children.
Then think about the left and its part in all this.

Of course the professional journalists never liked the access to publishing the internet has brought, and for understandable reasons resent those who do for free what they need to be paid for. They have never liked the whole blog thing - and despair of those who repute their articles and use twitter.

I'm broadly in favour of more Grammar schools, but wonder if it isn't a further attempt to steal UKIP's clothes by a Conservative party who seems much more concerned about UKIP than it is Labour.
However, a further question has to be asked. Is Theresa trying to destroy her government, as a way of saving the EU's dominion over the United Kingdom ?
She's made a lot of enemies very quickly. The Toffs won't have liked their butchering in her reshuffle, and in case that didn't work attacking independent schools where they and their children attend today will reinforce the message. The hardened anti-UK re-moaners ( and there are plenty of them in what is laughingly called the Conservative party ) hate her for not allowing their more obvious schemes to destroy the Brexit mandate.
Is she really trying to sabotage her own government, knowing that its fall will save her beloved European Union ? Or is she trying to engineer an early general election given the Corbyn is likely to still be leading Labour ?Just a thought ...
