The more I follow the details of the Brexit story the more I sense complete panic from the camp that wants to Remain in the European Union.
Next week’s vote for Prime Minister Theresa May’s ‘Plan B’ deal will see a series of amendments voted on to tie the her hands between now and March 29th. These are making the headlines raising the hopes of Remainers and, most especially Wall St., that a “No-Deal’ Brexit will not occur.
The headlines are all Kabuki Theatre.
As I explained in an article for Strategic Culture Foundationthe real story is the self-destructive behavior of Remainers. They are sacrificing all their political capital to stop a Brexit the people want (and voted for) with positions they can’t defend in specific terms.
The talking point that is repeated ad nauseum ad infinitum is ‘No-Deal’ would be horrible. It carries the implicit assumption that the people do not know what’s good for them.
But in reality a ‘No-Deal’ is horrible for the very people arguing against it. In politics, everyone is talking their book.
The fact that Labour is so dead set against Brexit of any meaningful form tells you just how out of touch, corrupt and arrogant they truly are.
But they miscalculated thinking the opinion polls showing them in the lead as a refutation of Brexit, not of the government’s handling of it.
Now they are truly panicking.
I think it’s clear at this point that May realizes the stakes here and can only navigate through this by remaining the only major political figure in the U.K. that fully supports the people’s will to honor the referendum and deliver a meaningful Brexit while hanging the event of a ‘No-Deal’ on Parliament.
Even if she doesn’t believe herself that to be the optimal outcome.
That’s why these amendments are panic moves. Project Fear over a hard Brexit has failed. Because waiting in the wings is the kind of political and economic crisis that will shake the foundations of Europe to their core.
The biggest worry from a hard Brexit is the unveiling of the EU’s lack of negotiating power over its member states. Brussels continues to portray invincibility and inevitability but that image is shattered by a ‘No-Deal’ Brexit the entire political class has invested so much in stopping.
