Today the Romford MP Andrew Rosindell writes for the Havering Daily.
There are two very different moods across the country today. When I spoke at two public meetings on Monday evening at St. Alban’s Church and Tuesday evening at Havering Road Methodist Church, my constituents were frustrated and angry with the Brexit situation. They made it clear that they want us to get out of the EU as soon as possible: they are sick and tired of the chaos and delays caused by a ragtag bunch of opposition MPs and rebels.
On Tuesday morning, I switched on the television to watch Remainers gloating and happy after the Supreme Court decision overturning the prorogation of Parliament. While Europhile elites pat themselves on the back, I know that my constituents in Romford will be seething.
What we saw today was the latest in a string of attempts to undermine the government in its negotiations with Europe and to stop us from leaving the EU on the 31st of October. The tactics Remainers are turning to now are not just offensive to the millions of people across this country that voted to leave. They also undermining the British constitution and the traditions of our country which go back hundreds of years.
An independent judiciary. An apolitical Monarch. A neutral speaker. Respect for parliamentary procedure. These things are the basis of our political system. In attempting to go against the will of the British people and overturn the democratic result of the referendum, Remainers have done immense damage to our country.
There are two reasons why Remainers are being forced to turn to increasingly desperate strategies to stop Brexit. Firstly, we now have a Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, who is willing to do whatever it takes to deliver Brexit and get us out of the EU without any more delays or extensions.
Secondly, the Remainers know that they don’t have the support of the people. This is the fundamental problem with their strategy.
It’s why they have to turn to constitutional technicalities to pass legislation, since they cannot form a government of their own. It’s why they relied on the courts to overturn a decision made by the elected government of this country. This is the reason why they repeatedly refused the chance to fight a General Election and put their case to the British people.
Remainers should be careful what they wish for. While they gloat on television, the voters at home are turning off their TVs in disgust. A General Election is now inevitable, and I don’t think that Remainer’s attempts to stop Brexit and overturn democracy will go down as well with the British public as they do in the Westminster bubble. When we win that election and leave the European Union, I hope it will be a strong message to the political establishment that British democracy is still alive and well, despite the damage their tactics may have done to our constitution.
