British Globalists Pass Bill to Block ‘No-Deal’ Brexit – Ongoing Elitist Efforts to Ignore British Referendum…

The jaw-dropping elitism expressed by British members of parliament continued today as globalists in the Conservative Party joined with globalists in the Labour Party and passed a bill in the UK House of Commons to block no-deal Brexit.  Their goal is to handcuff Prime Minister Boris Johnson from leaving the EU on October 31st.  [Backstory Here]

The multinational banks and financial elite have poured money toward the anti-Brexit politicians (both parties) and deployed all media efforts in an attempt to stop the U.K from leaving the European Union despite the majority of British who voted to leave in 2016.

The latest move by the elitist group, led by far-left Jeremy Corbyn, forces the U.K. to say in the EU until an agreement to exit the EU is affirmed.  However, the actual purpose of the bill is to empower the EU never to agree to *any* terms of Brexit, thereby keeping the U.K. in the EU forever.

Boris Johnson has requested a mid-October general election so the British people can remove the elitist politicians.  However, two-thirds of those same politicians would have to agree to allow a vote that would eliminate their position.  Therefore, the pontificating elite are also blocking any effort at a snap election.  It’s a mess.

Right now the upper chamber (House of Lords) has threatened to filibuster the lower chamber (House of Commons) bill in an effort to help their Prime Minister.  However, there is also a possibility Prime Minister Johnson could intentionally just ignore the law (if passed), proceed toward a no-deal Brexit and force Parliament to vote him out of office; which would trigger the general election vote the Prime Minister is seeking.

It’s a classic case of elitist politicians trying all parliamentary rules to override the majority vote of the people in the country.

Two centuries ago the masses would have already taken arms against their overseers, stormed the gates and hung the politicians from Tower Bridge.  Unfortunately, in 2019 it’s less likely to happen… Although if the elitist politicians keep this up, well, you never know.

(Via AP) – In a second straight day of parliamentary turmoil, the House of Commons voted by 327-299 in favor of an opposition bill to block a no-deal Brexit, sending it to Parliament’s upper chamber, the House of Lords.

Even so, the bill’s fate is unsure. With Johnson set to suspend Parliament for several weeks starting next week, pro-Brexit peers in the Lords are threatening to try to stop it by filibustering until time runs out.

“There is very little time left,” said Labour Party lawmaker Hilary Benn as he introduced the opposition bill. “The purpose of the bill is very simple: to ensure that the United Kingdom does not leave the European Union on the 31st of October without an agreement.”

The bill would require the government to ask the EU to delay Brexit until Jan. 31, 2020, if it can’t secure a deal with the bloc by late October.

The lawmakers hope to pass the bill into law — a process that can take months — by the end of the week, because Johnson plans to suspend Parliament at some point next week until Oct. 14.

Johnson became prime minister in July by promising to lead Britain out of the EU, breaking the impasse that has paralyzed the country’s politics since voters decided in June 2016 to leave the bloc. But he is caught between the EU, which refuses to renegotiate the deal it stuck with May, and a majority of British lawmakers opposed to leaving without an agreement. Most economists say a no-deal Brexit would cause severe economic disruption and plunge the U.K. into recession. (read more)

Perhaps nothing personifies the elitist outlook more than this letter from Phillip Lee a member of Boris Johnson’s own party who is resigning because the Prime Minister continues to listen to the unwashed people, disregard the elites and pursue Brexit.

Read this:

…”the twin diseases of populism and English nationalism”?

Dr Lee is apoplectic that any politician might listen to the British people.

MP Phillip Lee openly states any British person who wants to leave the EU is suffering from a disease of wrongful thought; and accuses them of British patriotism.  How dare they be so bold….

The open elitist worldview is really quite remarkable.

    At least now everyone’s cards are on the table for anyone interested to see. No more obfuscation, no more hiding true intent. It seems to me that civil disobedience of a high order something like on the scale of what is occurring in Hong Kong is the only path left to exiters if the will of the majority is going to be fulfilled. But, that is not the British way.

      Actually, they’re still obfuscating. They say the bill is to ensure Britain doesn’t leave without a deal, but they mean that Britain never leaves period. They like Massa.

      It’s not over. Boris says flat out he will not ask for an extension, and when the follow-up question is, “will you resign,” he smoothly immediately changes the subject. The point is, Parliament do not dare to bring a motion of no confidence, because that would bring on an election he would win. So he can and does signal the EU that they had better deal. They’d be wise to deal. They are against the electorate, they are trying to lock up the British which no one has ever succeeded at, their negotiating stance is immoral since it leverages the threat of civil war in Ireland, their allies are about to lose the next election, they are trying a trade deal with the US which is deeply Anglophile, and their economies are at risk of tanking. They have no children, and the fuel tank is running low. They should deal, now while it looks gracious.

    I imagine the queen has never liked seeing her country controlled by the EU. This is one case where having a monarchy with a queen that has been on the thrown for so long would help. She is no fool. Independent rule now rests on Boris, her, and Nigel. It’s quite amazing that the fate of a nation comes down to a few people like it did for Churchill, and like it is for Trump. I always wonder what Trump would say if you could get a sit down off the record meeting with him. What is really going on in our government. I think his answers would greatly depress me which is why I am glad he is president. I don’t believe anyone else has the stomach to change the path of our nation. God bless Trump. May be be safe and shown favor.

    Brexit may well save England…at least some form of it. I imagine over the next 20 years we will see something akin to what happened to Yugoslavia in the 1990s happening here. I hope so because I have no desire living in an Islamic state which is where the UK is currently headed. There will be violence along the way but it will be worth it. The big question remains though. Who gains controll of our nuclear submarines?

      Indeed.
      Laws used as a bulwark against common sense measures a broad base of citizens support.

      Indeed. Legalist practioners transform the most basic functions of legitimate government into leaving their own country wide open to predators , both foreign and domestic ,

      border security, Immigration control, campaign finance, PAC donors, abuse of charitable foundations.

      She Aptly lines out the Evidence.

      “In 1994, nearly 60% of Californians voted to deny government services to illegal aliens. Proposition 187 was approved 59% to 41%, with the votes of 56% of African Americans, 57% of Asians — and even a third of Hispanics. It won in every county of California except San Francisco. In heavily Latino Los Angeles County, Proposition 187 passed by a 12-point margin.

      Liberals said: No problem, we’ll take the case to a left-wing, Carter-appointed federal judge who will overturn the will of the voters! District Court Judge Mariana Pfaelzer held that the perfectly constitutional law was “unconstitutional” and, today, California taxpayers are forced to spend billions of dollars on food, housing, education, health care and prison cells for illegal immigrants.”

    The UK is yet another example of how the West is tagged for destruction and the ruling elite are in on the con.

    The left-right construct is simply Kabuki Theater to keep the British people focusing on people and politics instead of embracing their commonality as a proud ancient society, and what makes them British.

    The same thing is going on in the USA. If you are proud of your country you’re a jingoist, a nationalist. If you believe that your country should not be invaded by 3rd world peasants you are a racist and on and on it goes.

    To beat this, we can no longer cower from words. Run right at them and run right at them hard and with determination because in truth they are small percentage of the population, buoyed by a criminal MSM and the panicked invasion of their 3rd world pets/slaves.

    Why did the United Kingdom not join the European Union when it started?

    The United Kingdom was invited to participate in talks which led to the European Union’s predecessors: the Treaty of Paris (1951) which established the European Coal and Steel Community and the Treaty of Rome (1957) which established the European Economic Community and the European Atomic Energy Community. The British did not engage in a significant way with these talks and signed neither treaty at the time.

    They disliked many of the supranational and technocratic elements in the treaties. They were worried about damaging links with the Commonwealth, and they wished to pursue a ‘one-world economic system’ policy in which sterling was a central currency. The United Kingdom’s non-participation in the European Coal and Steel Community and the European Economic Community at the beginning meant than when Britain joined the European Economic Community in 1973 it had to accept many elements that have proved controversial with British voters: its supranationalism, common agricultural policy, and budget. These were all established before the British joined.

    Sounds like the Brits have the same issue we have here. Big surprise… From the groundbreaking 2014 Princeton University study which got virtually no mass media attention here in the U.S. Asterisk emphasis is mine:

    Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens

    https://scholar.princeton.edu/sites/default/files/mgilens/files/gilens_and_page_2014_-testing_theories_of_american_politics.doc.pdf

    Excerpts:

    A great deal of empirical research speaks to the policy influence of one or another set of actors, but until recently it has not been possible to test these contrasting theoretical predictions against each other within a single statistical model. We report on an effort to do so, using a unique data set that includes measures of the key variables for 1,779 policy issues.

    Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence. The results provide substantial support for theories of Economic-Elite Domination and for theories of Biased Pluralism, but not for theories of Majoritarian Electoral Democracy or Majoritarian Pluralism.

    In the United States, our findings indicate, the majority does not rule—at least not in the causal sense of actually determining policy outcomes. When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites or with organized interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the U.S. political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favor policy change, they generally do not get it.

    …the preferences of economic elites (as measured by our proxy, the preferences of “affluent” citizens) have far more independent impact upon policy change than the preferences of average citizens do. ****To be sure, this does not mean that ordinary citizens always lose out; they fairly often get the policies they favor, but only because those policies happen also to be preferred by the economically-elite citizens who wield the actual influence.****

    I know this is not the ‘view’ here, but speaking from the UK, these 3 remind me of the 3 stooges! Unlike the 3 stooges, though, the quality of our politicians at the moment, is appalling. I can’t wait for an election to vote the present lot, of all persuasions, out. This isn’t a battle about ‘elitists’ at all. The most ‘elitist’ of our leaders is the one from Eton College and Balliol, Oxford. You know, the one who’s grandparents are Turkish (I’m an admirer of Turkey!) but who’s name is Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson….
    The country is essentially split right down the middle, between Leave and Remain, and at the last referendum, the Brexiteers won by a slim majority. The problem is: each main party is pretty well split right down the middle too, and so the ability to deliver a deal through the constitution, ie through parliament, is severely hampered. No party, except the smaller ones, has hung their hat on either Remain or Leave.
    Boris has a remit to deliver Brexit. But this should not obscure the fact that Boris has been shown to put his own interests above the interests of both his party and his country. Disloyalty breeds disloyalty, and his disastrous ‘no deal’ policy is being held in check.
    Personally, I would prefer Northern Ireland to stay in the EU, maintain an open border with Ireland, and split from the UK union. Lots of countries have split up in Europe. Maybe it’s time for the UK to look at itself a bit harder.

    Boris may have caught the remainers in a parliamentary trap. Boris appears to have a veto of sorts to this no deal no Brexit vote in the HOC and HOL.

    Too Clever
    The Benn Bill requires Johnson’s approval. What do you think the odds of that are?
    That’s the long and short of it.
    It’s unclear if Benn knew this or not. It’s possible he did and hoped Johnson would not catch it. More likely, the drafters of the Benn bill did not know.

    Either way, the point is moot.
    There is no way to force Johnson to approve this. And he won’t, even if Bercow demands.
    Benn can take it to the courts, but the law is clear.

      Great Post, MilUpper!

      ‘Just the Facts Ma’am

      Johnson goaded 21 problematic Rebel Tories into voting against him. Those Tories have been removed from the party and will lose their seats in the next election. Good riddance.

      Because of foolish Remainer actions, Johnson will no longer have to go through the charades of working out a deal with the EU.

      Johnson’s hands are effectively bound and he welcomes that! He will not have to work out a deal. Instead he can lay the blame on the EU and on the Remainers for removing the option to negotiate with the EU.

      By removing the 21 rebels, Johnson won the support of Nigel Farage thereby allowing a coalition between the Brexit Party and the Tories minus the rebel problem makes.

      The Remainers are hopelessly split. Corbyn wants a referendum or the right to work out a customs deal with the EU. The Liberal Democrats want to remain. Many Labour party members want Brexit.”

    We never won the war against Hitlers oppression for the British government. They have two votes that folks want out of the shackles of the EU and the ELITE LIBERALS liberally believe they know best and manipulate the system that the will of the people is effectively overturned. Just like DC and the swamp and the deep state. Time to lock up Roosevelt style, the enemy in camps and exercise freedom rights won by defeating Hitler and tyranny. Hitler promised Edward he’d win England after the war. Looks like a Hitler was correct his name is Jeremy Corbin aided and abetted by a Muslim mayor of London.
