After December’s paradigm-shifting general election in the United Kingdom, it might have seemed a bit anticlimactic, but on Thursday the House of Commons passed Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal with the European Union by a healthy margin of 330 – 231. The vote would seemingly put an end to more than three years of political fearmongering, unwarranted delay and prevarication by “Remainer” politicians and pundits.
While the main topic of this posting is NATO, we want to point to the significance of Britain’s separation from the European Union. Brexit is important, not so much because of that nation’s departure and its effect on matters involving trade. The far more important consequence of Britain leaving the European Union is that the move establishes a brake on the steady drift of Europe into a European government supplanting the once sovereign states of Europe, followed by world government. With Britain leaving, other nations have begun to consider a similar path.
In August, the British government prepared a report called “Operation Yellowhammer” that outlined the worst-case scenario for the country in case of a no-deal Brexit. The report was never made public. However, after opposition MPs defeated the ruling government in the House of Commons, the report was ordered to be publicized. The predictions therein warn that the UK could revert to a third world country.
With the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom ruling that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s decision to prorogue — or shut down — Parliament is unlawful, certain things are quite clear. All the talk about “democracy” by the “Remain” forces in Britain is highly hypocritical and the globalists who support Britain remaining in the European Union (EU) are willing to cause all sorts of political discord inside the U.K. to continue their attack upon the sovereignty of independent nations.
More than three years after voters in the U.K. decided to leave the European Union, ham-handed legislators in the country can still not figure out just how to do so. Days after new Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked the Queen to prorogue Parliament for five weeks in the lead-up to the October 31 leave deadline, Parliament has struck back, passing legislation that essentially takes a no-deal Brexit off the table, severely hampering Johnson’s ability to garner a better deal for Great Britain in its divorce from the European Union.
As Great Britain inches closer to another Brexit deadline, the country’s politicians are making moves in advance of what promises to be a raucous two-months until the October 31 leave date. While most lawmakers in the UK — including Prime Minister Boris Johnson (shown) — favor having some sort of deal that lays out a trade and border security agreement with European Union prior to the separation, some hardliners are insisting that Great Britain leave the European Union on October 31, with or without a deal in place.
