This is a coup, a victory for enemies of democracy. If the roles were reversed there would be riots in the street, so we CAN’T let Brexit be derailed by this City slicker and a Brazilian crimper, by Richard Littlejohn. This article puts the outrage and suspicions of the Brexiteers about as strongly as possible.
There may not be any tanks on the streets, but be under no illusion: what we’re seeing now is an attempted coup designed to overthrow the will of the British people.
Yesterday’s decision by three unelected judges to side with the sore losers who want to scupper Britain’s departure from the European Union is a constitutional outrage.
It is a victory for vested interests and the enemies of democracy.
The fix has been in since June 23, when 17.4 million voters handed the Government the biggest single mandate in history.
The global elite refuse to accept the referendum result:
Fanatical Remainers were never going to accept the decision and are resorting to any means available — putrid propaganda, parliamentary obstructionism, and now judicial activism — to keep Britain locked into the EU.
First they smeared Leave voters as moronic racists, too stupid to understand the consequences of their decision, and demanded a second referendum.
Then they claimed that the result was only ‘advisory’ and not binding on Parliament.
They also started to pretend that there was a choice between a ‘hard’ Brexit, which would result in financial ruin, and a ‘soft’ Brexit — effectively not leaving the EU at all.
This so-called ‘soft’ option would commit us to accepting freedom of movement and remaining subject to the rulings of the European Court of Justice — the very things we voted against. …
The Brazilian crimper and the courts:
If all we had to endure was the manoeuvring of MPs and the griping of the rest of the defeated Remain campaign, it would be just about tolerable.
But as became painfully apparent yesterday, there are more sinister forces at work.
The legal action which resulted in the High Court ruling was brought by a wealthy City investment manager, Gina Miller, and a hairdresser, Deir Dos Santos, about whom little is known and who is described as a British citizen of Brazilian origin.
Mrs Miller, married to a multi-millionaire hedge fund manager, is fronting for an outfit calling itself People’s Challenge — set up by an expat, Grahame Pigney, who lives in Carcassonne, France, and a Gilbraltarian government employee.
The action is also supported by something called Fair Deal for Expats, whose leading lights include a British company director who lives in Limoges, France; a businessman who runs a holiday rentals business in Italy; and an English language teacher in Hamburg, Germany.
They claim not to be trying to overturn the result, simply to ensure that Parliament controls the process.
We have entered a Looking Glass world in which — to paraphrase Humpty Dumpty — referendum results mean exactly what lawyers and judges decide they mean.
Outside the court, David Greene, lawyer for Deir Dos Santos, delivered the following statement, which defies satire: ‘We are the democrats here, not the Government.’
Who voted for him?
